“If My people,

which are called by My name,

shall humble themselves, and pray,

and seek My face,

and turn from their wicked ways;

then will I hear from Heaven,

and will forgive their sin,

and will heal their land.”

2nd Chronicles 7:14

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Columbine_Shooting_Security_Camera.jpgA certain Christian radio talk-show was focused on all the mass shootings which are occurring so regularly these days.

.

And the host was concerned about having more security measures, more well-trained and weaponized professionals, more background checks, as well as further safety checks in the future.

.

Of course, all these preventative measures might be necessary.

GETTING TO THE ROOT CAUSE

.

But even with all these seemingly good and necessary safeguards in place, the deep underlying cause for all the killings and crime sprees has not been properly addressed.

.

These preventative measures are mere band-aids.

.

And while they may stop the bleeding for a while, they do not get to the root of the problem.

‘HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY, AND SEEK MY FACE”

.

And this brings us back to today’s signature verse… “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2nd Chronicles 7:14

.

Here we have the underlying cause for all the horrific atrocities now occurring throughout the land, and even around the world.

.

God’s people must step up to the plate and fulfill this above verse.

2ND CHRONICLES 7:14, HAS BECOME A CLICHE

.

Now, there are many moral, law-abiding, church-going citizens who have this verse planted in their front lawn for all passers-by to see.

.

But this above verse, at best, is only superficially understood.

.

MORE THAN MERE MORALITY

.

The problem is, we just don’t fully realize the depths of what 2nd chronicles 7:14 is really saying.

.

Most faithful church-goers look at this verse and think of it terms of morality and outward behavior.

.

But what most of us just don’t fully comprehend is, that the Christian life is a moment-by-moment faith-walk, as the Spirit of God leads us onward and upward along the pathway of Bible truth.

BY TRIALS AND TESTIMONIES

.

To seek the face of Jesus, as 2nd Chronicles 7:14 instructs us, has been further spoken of in 2nd Corinthians, 3:18…“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgchanged into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

.

Here is the essence of true Christianity. To keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. That is what is meant when 2nd Chronicles 7:14 commands us “to seek My face”.

.

Oh yes, God fully assists us in this process. He works with us every moment of the day, even though we’re not aware of it. And yes, God often gives us times of rest, and refreshment, and joy during our daily faith-walk. But in addition to spending our day meditating on His Word, it is also the many trials, both big and small which God has ordained to purify us from the nagging sins which seemingly refuse to let go of us.

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS”

Mark 13:14

.

But while the secular world and nominal Christians attempt to solve society’s problems in https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgsuperficial ways, those who are truly called by God’s name must cast away all our earthly idols, both big and small, just as Isaiah, Chapter 2:20, 21 says…“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”

.

Yes, God has arisen, and He is beginning to shake the earth terribly. And so, it is high time for His people to cast away our many idols, and begin to fully devote ourselves to our God-given commission to overcome the world, the flesh and the Devil.

.

And this is the only means by which the Lord has ordained, that all this madness and mayhem may finally and fully be vanquished!

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
