The Evangelical Heretic #3: Heal Our Nation

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

By reading this verse, or better still, reciting it in a tremoring, prophetic-sounding voice, you remind God that He must heal Great Britain and bring about moral reformation.

Nonsense. The British have never been called by His name; the text refers to the Hebrews, and no-one else. God has not promised to revive any particular nation. Yet He will revive His church, and He will add to its numbers. When people find Christ, they turn from wickedness and they, their homes and their families begin to be healed from sin and its corrosion. The different nationalities represented in the New Jerusalem will eat from the Tree of Life, the leaves of which are for their healing. This does not occur before Christ’s coming- which will be preceded by exceptional wickedness, not revival.
