Rollover fighting Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, Byron Tyler here with.
Of all the CEO of love refining. Today Adrian Rogers messages it's prayer time in America. Our prayers must be humbly offered in Jesus name humbly pray in Jesus name.
The name that is above all names right but I think about what is prayer look like for America condo in Tennessee where we are. We have 95 counties. That means 95 mayors and governor and into senators and congressmen and then we look across this great land.
Are we truly praying for America. Are we calling Tom out during the day and praying for our leaders.
Praying that God will show up in a mighty way way that's that's a task that's not a flippant prayer right but I think when we do that we humble ourselves and take time to pray, we see that God begins to answer those prayers in his time and in his way. Will Adrian Rogers has said, when the church begins to do what we ought to do, then will begin to deal with all of these other problems. Stop pointing fingers bow the knee before God and get right with God. Yes.
Yes. So when you look at and we quote this all the time. Second Chronicles 714. There's a few things that we must do humble ourselves, pray, seek his face and here it is again turn from our wicked ways and if we do that here are some things that God will do, he will hear.
He will forgive and then he will heal our land will we always appreciate those who take time to write to this ministry love refining and we have a response from Facebook. This is my husband and I listen to Dr. Rogers on the Internet on a weekly basis. This teaching is still profound and relative to today. We appreciate his depth. In this day and age when so many pastors water down the word we always pick up some nugget of truth and I love that.
It also is a reminder that you can hear LWF on the Internet and course available on the app about only app you can you can go to LWF ministries app you have daily devotions you have from the vault. You have today's sermon. All that is, they are or or go to LWF.org and all that's at your fingertips as well. What a great testimony. We talk about praying for America to remind those today that 40 days of prayer is a guided initiative to inspire you to pray for this nation in such a critical time. Yes, in the something very significant about 40 right as we look at the number 40 and what it means. Throughout the word of God and so I think if if our constituents and our supporters will make a point to pray. I believe the web are not always be honest, I believe it's the most important election time for America will with his message. It's prayer time in America hears Adrian Rogers you take your Bibles this morning and opened the second Chronicles chapter 7 and verse 14. It will recognize that verse as a time worn verse we've heard it over and over again, but we must in these days revisit that verse I want. If the American dream that was placed into the bosom of our fathers will become a national nightmare. I asked this question this way is it too late for America that we already cross the place the state of no return, I submit to you that we have not second Chronicles 7 and verse 14.
Here is an ancient promise. Obviously it was given to Israel, but the Bible says of Israel, all these things happen to them for examples. Plus, here's what God says 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. This wonderful nation born in 1776 must be born again right will join the graveyard of the nations.
God says in Jeremiah 10 verse 10 that his wrath, the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Now God, I'm certain is indignant with America, we have insulted the Almighty and we are ready for judgment, but we need mercy will become a proud nation wallowing in materialism and rotting in sin.
What we call pleasure and freedom. Now there is hope for America.
But I tell you this much. America must turn to God or she will done. First of all I want you to see what I'm going to call people God has God said now this whole promise that I'm about to give to you is predicated on what God's people now so many times we say, oh, if only Hollywood would owe if only the government would only if the pornographers would only if the abortionist would be God does not look to the books. God is looking at us.
He's looking to you.
Are you one of his people are you are then stop putting the blame on somebody else listen to me.
If America falls, and it will be our fault. What you say will.
If only God would know when I'm waiting on God.
You think God is to blame for the message wherein you think that the reason we are in the state where it is because God has been in different ladies and gentlemen, it is not our duty to persuade God to send revival we must permit him to do so and it began at the house of God.
If my people, a woman got involved in politics and is all right to be involved in politics, but she was so enthusiastic.
She told her husband. It looks like were going to sweep the state. He said I suggest you start at the back door and the church must start at the back door. The Bible says in first Peter 417 for the time is come that judgment must began at the house of God, I'm done.
Again, the hope of America is not in the White House, not the statehouse, not in the schoolhouse. It is in God's house.
That's the first thing in this promise the people, the people God has a second, I want you to notice the pride God he he says of my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and what is wrong with America.
We wreak with broad we struck in the face of God and God cannot bless you as an individual, God cannot bless this church. God cannot bless our nation, when we have such pride. Pride is the root of all kinds of evil. We today in America are filled with humanistic hardness. The Bible says would humble ourselves. If you ever pray God make us humble going to he can take and bring us to humiliation and he may but how much better if we would humble ourselves. The Bible says when to humble ourselves.
James four verse six but he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Think about God resisting you God resisting America. God said himself in battle array against God, resisting the proud. When I listen he gives grace to the humble. What America needs is not judgment but grace. Grace is grace is both the desire and the ability to do the will of God.
God puts a desire in your heart that is grace got into the spring live as you want to live, but God resists the proud, gives grace to the humble. Did you know that pride is number one God take parade basic things that the Lord hate EA seven are an abomination under him and the number one thing in the lives is a problem, a problem some people construct sitting down, a proud pride is behind & it was pride that made the if you're not willing to humble yourselves to get with God is moved to the third thing in this promise the people God had not only the pride God hates what the prayer God.
He is everywhere, God put simplifications on his prayers. God says we will pray and seek his face and turn from our wicked ways. The prayer that God hears is the prayer that seeks God.
What is wrong in America were not seeking the face of God. When seeking the hand revival is when God has not turned his back on when God can smile upon when God can find favor in a when God can turn his countenance to us. You think God can smile at America today know God says we need to seek his face like most Americans are seeking God's face there seeking God's hand. Michelle God do something 11. Can't you see that God is doing something God is judging this God is judging this nation and we need to see the hand of God but the face of God. We say God is our only hope that is true. Notice something else. This may shock you, but God is our biggest threat. I'm not as much afraid of what some tears nation major to America as I am asked what God may do to America. God is a God of vengeance, and God will judge us so the Bible says we are to seek his face and we are to turn from our wicked ways, thus far, the message is been fairly simple thus far. You say well I believe that I can do that when I listen to this weird turn from our wicked ways. Prayer for revival without repentance is a religious farce. So many of us have the idea that God's going to bless us know when I go to turn from our sin when we go to St. God bless America.
While killing little babies were going to sing God bless America when suddenly struck down main streets with pride.
We go to St. God bless America.
When he is cursed and malign, and when he cannot be mentioned in our public concourse, why should God bless America. He will not unless we turn from our wicked way actually to pray without repentance angers God. Listen to this verse summative verse four. How long will God oppose Lord of those. How long will that be angry against the prayer of piping God nightmare. The prayer is God. When you be any at the prayer of likely there was a time when the Israelites across Jordan. There were Madison people. There was mighty Jericho Joshua led the children of Israel against Jericho and the walls came tumbling down. You remember that. And then they with their pride, one against another little city, a two letters in the name of a small city, a small name, but Israel was ignominiously defeated and they ran like whipped toppings from the face and arm have a Joshua, the leader fell on his face and settled God, why have you failed God, why have we been defeated and God said to Joshua. Joshua get up off your face and smile what you saying to Joshua Joshua. You can pray all you want, but until you deal with repentance, prayer is not some sort of a smoke screen which you can find your private you got to repent now repentance is a shopworn term also imitate what repentance is a friend. Repentance, by the way the word is used 969 times in the Bible. The first message that Jesus gave when he came preaching was repent. The last message that Jesus gave from heaven to the church was to repent the message that God is giving to you today is repent condescendingly 13 three except your initial all likewise perish. Know what is repent. Repentance is more than a conviction of sin, you might be today living in sin.
This message may have convicted you when I talk about living together without the benefit of matter. You may have felt a little stab in your heart because that's what you do but repentance is more than conviction of sin I read in the Bible were Paul preached a man named Peter and the Bible teaches that Felix trimmed like a leaf in the stall widening from because he was convicted of sin, repentance is more than confession. You're safe.
I confess my sin.
I repented know you if that's all there is to Pharaoh confess to sin. Remember that God sent place to eat. The convict Pharaoh that he might turn from sin. The Bible says in Exodus chapter 9 verse 23 and Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven and the Lord sent thunder and hail and the fire ran along the ground and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
What happened when the fire and the hail came when the lightning was running on the ground. Pharaoh confess to sin.
Exodus 9 verse 27 and Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron and send them I said what happened when the storm God, but conviction that was born in the storm died in the call. Repentance is more than conviction of sin, repentance is more than confession of sin and repentance is more than contrition, contrition for sin. Tears may accompany repentance. But tears are not repentance godly sorrow worketh repentance. I'm not asking today. Are you sorry for your sin I'm asking today where you turn from your sin what is repentance. God says we are turn to turn get that word to turn from our wicked way.
A repentance is a turning the word literally means a change of mind. Now it is both negative and possible we turn from our wicked way, we see the face of God. Acts 20 verse 21 testifying both to the Jews into the Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ, repentance and faith on the heads and tails are getting right with God.
We seek God's face we turn from our wicked way. Repentance is a heart change and repentance listen to is a whole hearted change. The idea that you can get right with God in one area without getting right in every area you think you can do it by gradualism this I when I Lord I dealt with my cursing now. Tomorrow I'm going to be with my daughter.
No, it is a change. It is a wholehearted change when you say once and for all, now and forever. I'm sick of my sin.
I'm part of my sin and I turned listen to Ezekiel chapter 14 and verse six wherefore saying to the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God. Repent and turn yourselves from your idols and turn away your faces.
Listen from all all your abomination is what repentance is. It is a heart change and it is a whole hearted change you say now if I could just repent of this thing about going then perhaps God bless America congregation. Not only must we be broken over our sin. We must be broken from our sins. I am not much.
I am made of clay, but I can testify to you. There is no unconfessed unrepented of sin in my life you save a lot you wonderful know that is the normal Christian life? Child in this building want to go out without saying there is no unconfessed unrepented of sin in my life. Repentance is a heart change. It is a wholehearted change in Jesus said, except to repent is likewise all likewise perish. America will perish unless she repentance we say, what about the pornography needs to repent. What about the dope dealer. He needs to know God says it might be if I think can you imagine what would happen in America today. If our churches from sea to shining sea God. Each one of them in the pool opening the book of God with the spirit of God preaching the Christ of God to the people of God and calling America to repent that would not be changed in America almost overnight if that would happen people.hands the pride God hates the prayer God hears the good part. The promise daughter. The promise God is my feet were called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked way is the promise will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will be mailing don't you tell me it's too late for America. But God sent revival. The England, the 16th century. The God who sent revival on mount, the God who sent revival to Nineveh. The God who sent revival to Jerusalem that God is alive and well and I'm telling you that God will hear from heaven because he rules in the heaven may tell you that God is not a Republican.
God is not a Democrat, is king is king is all Democrats, Republicans, independence, libertarian, and whatever need to bow before him and God, the mighty God, rose from the heavens, God will hear from heaven, he will forgive their sin, I want to remind you of something will resend this message Don Rado Parton ninja now. God is angry at us and but is full of compassion is full of mercy and God will God.
God will forgive our sins, God will forgive America what you say pastor. What about the sins of all these wicked people we can we can be with that is right is not talking about the sins of all these wicked people. The liquor dealers in Hollywood and the pornographer and the drug pusher. God is talking to his people. God says if my people, and my people one on themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin. What and will heal their land. When the church gets right when we began to do what Realty do, then will begin to deal with all of these of problem stop pointing fingers bow the knee before God get right with God. Don't worry about the man to your right of the Mandela you want revival. Draw a circle on the floor get inside that circle and say God begin revival inside this circle one by one. I'm only one, but I am one. I can do everything that I can do something in what I can do and to do that by the grace of God I will do it my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face, then will I hear from heaven, I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.
I don't know whether we crossed the threshold are not where the recross God's deadline enough. But I'm telling you, if there were ever a time that we need to repent. This is the time.
This is the day this is the age don't put it off till tomorrow in your own personal life. Tomorrow you will have less time repent anymore. Send repent, say what I'm saying. Well I'm safe to when I saved I repent of my sin and I turned the Lord Jesus Christ, takes I've done far more repenting.
After I got saved than I did when I got saved. The reason for that is I learn far more about God and I have learned far more about me.
I remind you again that the hope of America is not in the White House, not in the schoolhouse not in the courthouse, but in the church we saying and we meet, God bless America to know what we need to do what America needs to do is blessing Scott, may we as Christian inheritance of a great legacy filled.
