“If I close the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people, and if My people who are called by my Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-15. No one wants to consider the last thing God is calling us to do – “turn from our wicked ways”.
I wonder when the people who are called by YHVH’s name will actually begin to consider their wicked ways, and start obeying Him. We know the wages of sin is death, and sin is transgression of the law (Torah), and yet the churches continue to rebelliously walk in their wicked ways, contrary to the way Yeshua /Jesus showed us, while teaching that it is good and right to disobey the Torah of YHVH. They teach that people should instead obey the pagan antichrist system of Roman Catholicism and keep the Pope’s established days that honor the sun god (hence the sunday, which no where in scripture is ever commanded, and which Rome herself proudly proclaims having established), instead of God’s day that He blessed and sanctified, and has established as His seal.
Since the plague came, followed by a boldly stolen election, unrivaled censorship, removal of freedom of speech, liberty, and justice, believers have been fasting, praying and seeking God in a way not seen in a long time. I truly believe however that no amount of prayer and false repentance will do a thing to move the hand of God to hear our prayers and heal our land. Our only course is to turn away from our wicked pagan ways, humble ourselves and turn as a body to keeping His holy set apart days (Leviticus 23), starting with His day of rest (Exodus 20:8-11), His memorial of creation, which He instituted on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2-3), and has never changed, nor could without redoing creation and choosing a different day to rest on, or breaking His own word.
It is time for the church to stop being the unlearned and unstable ones Peter warned of, who wrest Paul’s writings and twist them to their own destruction. Paul never changed the Sabbath, Yeshua never changed the Sabbath, Emperor Constantine in 331 AD enacted the venerable day of the sun, and the Roman Catholic Church adopted it in 361.
As for me and my house, we serve the LORD and keep His Torah, not the false doctrine of harlot Rome. When all who call themselves followers of Yeshua / Jesus start to do the same, then we will see an outpouring of God’s blessings and protection as He promised in Deuteronomy 28 He would do: “if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and do all His commandments…” — not just the ones we like and think are ok, but also the ones we mindlessly, if not outright rebelliously, don’t keep just because everyone else on the broad road that leads to destruction isn’t keeping them. Time to wake up; as should be apparent to everyone, time is short and coming off the broad road and entering through the strait gate and onto the narrow Way that leads to life is going to get harder each day that we put off following Him, until our conscience is seared and we lose the Way. No one wants to hear those most dreadful of words from the mouth of Yeshua directed at them – “I never knew you, depart from me ye who are working lawlessness.”
