October 15: Restoration of the Land

2 Chronicles 7:11-15

So Solomon finished the Temple of the Lord, as well as the royal palace. He completed everything he had planned to do in the construction of the Temple and the palace. Then one night the Lord appeared to Solomon and said,

“I have heard your prayer and have chosen this Temple as the place for making sacrifices. At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to every prayer made in this place. For I have chosen this Temple and set it apart to be holy—a place where my name will be honored forever. I will always watch over it, for it is dear to my heart.”

This is a favorite prayer used around the world despite its meaning and context.  Clearly this promise was given to King Solomon at the dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem.

When we usurp God’s promise to and about the land and the people of Israel it is called “Replacement Theology.”  The horror of this teaching is that it is calling God a liar or worse.

There is only one land that God promised to heal.

PRAY THAT ISRAEL WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND REPENT SO GOD WILL RESTORE AND HEAL THEIR LAND
