National Prayer Without National Repentance Won't Work

I posted this recently: "National prayer without national repentance is an abomination to God. In fact, it's the great national deception."

The Lord dropped something in my heart a few days ago that I want to submit to you.

Just as the plagues in Egypt were intended to cause Pharaoh to let God's people go, this plague is the first big sign (9/11 didn't do it) to stir the church, the nation and even the world toward humility, repentance and a wholehearted (very important word) turning to God.

This plague has altered our nation, but will it be temporary? Remember, Pharaoh reneged on his promises to let God's people go. He was not sincere. God is looking for sincerity in our repentance and service to Him.

I'm warning you that if there is insincere repentance and we return to life as usual, there is something else that will come on the heels of this virus that will alter life in America again. I wish it were not so, and I hope I'm wrong. The effects of another national crisis may last longer than this one. Depending on how the church and people respond to the second thing (I don't sense it will be another plague, but something else), there will be a third crisis that will change our nation for good, unless there is humility and heartfelt repentance.

Oh people, it's time to serve the Lord with holy fear and trembling. To those who've been genuinely born again, God is our Father who loves us with an everlasting love, but don't forget He is also a consuming fire, and it is a fearful thing to fall into His hands (Heb. 10:31). He loves even His enemies and desires to keep His hand of protection over our lives, families and nation, but we must cooperate with Him. read more
