It's a phrase we hear often about the bottom line will discover God's bottom line today with Dr. Don Wilton this is The Encouraging Word the Bible-based routing of Dr. Don Wilton, and today is messages on God's bottom line will be opening second Chronicles chapter 7 in just a few moments. Dr. Don Wilton remind you that you're here to pray with you and for you to encourage you specifically at 866-899-WORD. That's our phone number upright, jotted down or start your sour about 24 hours a you can on our website you'll see a great deal of interest about faith in the midst of a crisis. A wonderful series Dr. Don Wilton as well as the book to find details Bibles with me to second Chronicles chapter 7 and I'm reading from verse 11 second Chronicles chapter 7 and verse 11 bus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king's house and Solomon successfully accomplished all that came into his heart to make the house of the Lord and in his own home and the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said to him, I've heard your prayer chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice were not shut up the heavens and there is no rain. Walk among the locusts to devour the land washing the virus to come down upon the people and pestilence. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open is attentive to the prayer made in this place.

For now, I have chosen and sanctified this house.

Monday may be there forever in my eyes and my heart will be there perpetually.

As for you, you walk before me as your father David walked and do according to all I have commanded you. And if you keep my statutes and my judgments, then I will establish your throne of your kingdom is a covenant with David your father and saying you shall not fail to have a man as ruler over Israel, but if you turn away from me. If you forsake my statutes and my commandments which I have set before you, and if you go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will uproot you from my land, which I've given them this house the church, the tabernacle, which I have sanctified for my name, I will cost out of my sight and furthermore I will make my name a proverb and a byword among all people. And as for this house, which is exalted everyone who passes by, will be astonished and say why is the Lord done thus to this land to this house.

They will also because they forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers brought them out of the land of Egypt and embraced other gods and worship them and serve them. Therefore, he has ruled all this calamity upon them by the Lord, right. This would that we battle to preach. We don't want to deal with by the Lord right by his spirit this word upon our hearts.

This is God's bottom line the bottom line the bottom line is, if we humble ourselves and we pray and we see God's face and we turn came from our wicked ways.

The bottom line is that God will do three things for us, he will hear us from heaven. He will forgive us for our sin and he will give you what he sees. So my question today is why I'm just going on. So this seemed very simplistic terms today. Why from heaven, there is number one. Why from heaven may give you three reasons why God according to the Scriptures teaches us that he would hear us from heaven. Number one because that is where the throne is. This is where God's throne is you know you can go with me. I that we don't need to spend a lot of time on this, but if you go in the Bible to Revelation chapter 4 Revelation chapter 4 is a marvelous passage because it tells us what happens when Jesus comes in the clouds. When Jesus comes in the clouds. All of those of us who are alive on this earth again to be corked up and we going to meet those who are already in heaven is that fantastic. You know that every single believer like your mom.

My mother fathers, brothers, sons, daughters who have already parsed away who loved Jesus they went instantly into the presence of the Lord Jesus and is going to come a time that God is going to hear the word. And Jesus is going to come out of heaven from heaven and he's going to be in the clouds and those of us who are still alive we go, to be called top and we got to meet them in the end, when we meet Jesus, and all our loved ones in the he's going to turn around and he's going to take us back into heaven right there where the throne.

Revelation 4 tells us about this. Often these things. John said I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. The first voice I heard was like a trumpet speaking to me saying come up here and I will show you the things that now will take place.

What's this immediately drawn since I was in the spirit, and behold, it was a throne set in heaven, and there was one who sat upon it. This is the God of our fathers, the God of Abraham and the God of Jacob, and he who sat upon it shone with brilliance. Such a which you and cannot possibly imagine.

Why will God hear us from heaven because this is where the throne is all authority and power. I will hear you from heaven. God says, not only because this is where the throne is I will hear you from heaven because this is where our high priest sits, you got it right, you heard it right.

This is where high priestess sits Mark chapter 16 verse 19.

The Bible tells us that often Jesus ascended he ascended to be seated at the right hand of the father and that beautiful Hebrews chapter 8 verse one God's word tells us we have such a high priest who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven.

Is that fantastic Romans chapter 8 and verse 34 Jesus who died and then was raised by the power of God is now at the right hand of God making the thing to Dr. Don Wilton our teacher here on the Encouraging Word and he'll be back with the completion of today's message God's bottom line. Just a moment. Dr. Don Wilton stood and arrived take a moment to let you know preaching moments ago about the power of God right hand of God.

Jesus interceding is our advocate. He is our high priest Scriptures you just the power of intercession and would love to pray with and for you if you haven't decided it down yet.

My favorite is the daily Encouraging Word email. You can sign up today and within 24 to 48 hours. Having that's sign up for the daily Encouraging Word email from that today's message play seeking space from our wicked ways, he will hear us from heaven.

Why heaven is. This is where the throne of God. That's why because this is where our high priest is seated. That's why you see when Jesus came the cooking of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. When he died upon the cross, when he paid the price for our sin up into that point. According to the law of the Mosaic law. The only person who could going to the holy of holies into the present block was the high priest no more. Jesus is our intercessor. He's a mediator.

He is the one who mediates he's the one who in us to become fully and completely reconciled to a holy and a righteous God, and guess what we've got problems. We got problems and he saves you from heaven because how high priestess seated at the right hand of the father right there at the throne of God, one with God and he is interceding on alcohol. Wow, Lord euros from heaven.

One number three because this is where God tells us to go. That's why God says the bottom line. We don't need a meeting. We don't need to call anybody together don't need to wait for a theological pronouncement it settled God's bottom line. I will hear you from heaven. This is where the throne of God is. This is where high priestess seated. This is where God tells us we gotta go well. He told us. I will hear you from heaven, and I will forgive your sin.

Wife will give wife why, why forgive Allison well you will not know don't we that unless we are forgiven of Allison. We can never have fellowship with the Lord because he is holy. We can never be reconciled to God and get this folks, if you not forgiven abuse and you cannot and will not go to heaven. It doesn't matter how nice the things that are seated at your funeral service God's word is abundantly clear. You're either full God or you're against God, there's no hovering between the two, but I lost the question, according to what God's word is teaching us. Why do we need to be forgiven well. He tells us in second Chronicles. This is going to be tough.

Guess why we need to be forgiven. America is why we need to be forgiven church believers. The Bible tells us in verse 20 that what happened to Israel will happen to us first of all, because God will up root us. God will up root us. That's what he sees in verse 20 I will uproot the you know the thing about willpower is is that willpower does believe that they are perpetually willpower's you know how many willpower wasn't begun right turn their backs on God they become rooted.

The word up root carries with it the systematic. This integration we talking spiritually and imploding takes place to uproot something means to tear it out by its roots because the things that matter don't matter anymore. Why do we need to be forgiven is if we are not forgiven God who us. I'm telling you, my friends, God has heavy hand of blessing on America of that. The reason no doubt, and we sing about it. One of my favorite songs to sing his God bless America is that it true blessing that God's going to do for America, regardless of how we behave toward God does. God bless America because we big because we strong what is the reason. What is he telling us what is God's bottom line. We need to be forgiven, personally, individually, begins with me. It's about us.

Forgive us Lord we want to turn completely 100 away from ourselves in 100 you for psyching ourselves and taking all God. God is telling us. The bottom line if you don't turn from your wicked way, I will uproot you, but why forgive because if we not forgiven God will turn away from us. You will note any uproot us, but he will turn away from us. Look what he says should he says I will cost the amount of my site you known a human level. Have you ever really cared for someone loved someone and they won't look at you when you talk to them. I remember one time a year or so ago with young lady just happened didn't conversation with me in our church and her heart was broken and I just remember her saying to me in the car door one day. She said Dr. Wilton.

I know that something's wrong because he won't look at me anymore. She loved this young man and all of a sudden whatever happened happen. She picked it up just because he wouldn't look at her you know is it is it silly for me to say that I just love looking at my wife Karen. How many times do we not use the phrase with those that we love.

It's just so lovely to see you. God sees. I will turn my face from you. We cannot survive if God turns his face from us.

God takes his eyes off us soon as God takes his eyes. He's face away from us something serious is wrong, we lose his intimacy and his touch. Why forgive as God will uproot us because God will turn away from us, but the third one is just staggering. Why do we need to be forgiven.

What's the bottom line goes without forgiveness.

God will perpetually remind us, God will perpetually remind us to know what he tells us, you, he will turn his name into a proverb and a byword. It's right there in the Scripture ceases.

I will take my name and I will make my name a proverb and a byword.

If you are not forgiven of your sin. This is what I'm going to do. I'm going to make my name a prophet what's a proverb it's a it's an general word is not expressing a perceived truth. The name Jesus in your community in your world will become nothing more than a general program that perceives a truth, why, why do we need forgiveness why America God will perpetually remind us if we not forgiven. You know how you do that attorney's name into a proverb I would be on every second person's lips even to describe the line they had to stand in the shopping mall, God's name will be bandied around like a ping-pong ball playing from one table to the next. This is God. This is our Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for us that we might have life, so why, why do we need healing and heal our land. Why do we need healing we need healing because we've turned away from God for verse 19 says you turn away. We've turned away with turnings so rapidly away from God. We can hardly stand also is why we need healing. These are undeniable truths. These of the facts.

America, the fact is we all turning away from God. That's why we need his healing number two because we are forsaken his commandments what he tells us in verse it if you turn away number two if you forsake my statutes and my Kaman I'm just telling you what God sees you can go through all the Kaman June start in the Old Testament, write them down.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

How we doing America. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

How you doing how are you doing how we doing America remember the Sabbath day the Lord's day to keep it holy the Lord's day in America is just another day during which time there are so many of us believers who if it's convenient. We fit in God. But if it's more than an hour only do we get upset about it.

How about no adultery.shalt not commit adultery, how you doing thou shall not steal Juno lay aside the Old Testament going to the New Testament. The New Testament is replete with the statutes and Kaman's of the Lord. What is mean to forgive others what does it mean to be meek in your spirit. Go to the Beatitudes going to the postural epistles you and I all of us. What is it mean God's word.

The bottom line nieces listen you need healing. Why do we need healing because we've turned away from God because we forsaken his Kaman but thirdly because we are worshiping other gods. We are a nation of God, worshipers, the little dogs are running rampant with all of us. We worshiping how close we worship our shops. We worship our football teams. We worship our barbecues and holidays we worship our well-being. We worship so many things we just worship them.

They become the new gods of our lives how materialism oppositions our ability, our intellect, God says thou shalt have no other gods before me. That's what God said, Lord, and heal our land. We cry out with her pastor. God heal our land and you know, as we pray that his believers. Some of you are thinking I just want God to heal our land from this coronavirus and that is important we continue to pray for those that have been struck by this disease. For those families that have lost loved ones and I pray that you would understand that the healing that Dr. Don is talking about starts with us as we say yes to Jesus Christ it's a spiritual healing, and if you've not given your life to Jesus Christ, then you're missing the very most important first step.
