7:14  Forgive their sins and heal their land

The Children of Israel are God’s chosen people, and the Land of Israel is His chosen land. The people’s conduct directly influences what happens in the land, since Hashem responds to them with reward or punishment as appropriate. As such, the people feel a great attachment to the land, since it is through the land that God communicates whether or not His people are following His will.

    AND MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK CRAVE, REQUIRE AS A NECESSITY MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR THEM, FROM HEAVEN, AND FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND.

    So, if Christian believers would do II Chronicles 7:14, as we are the grafted in portion of Scriptures, that God will do this for our lands? When we Believers who would truly and sincerely, humble ourselves, pray to God, see His favor and turn from our wicked ways, that God will forgive our sins and will heal our land?? Then, why aren't more Believers and Jews following this ? Don't Jews believe what God says here? Why don't we cry out to God, His way, to receive this promise????

      HaAretz is a mess. Thanks to benadam's corruption, polluting and lies on top of lies, the current state of things isn't salvagable. Who will cry out my dear? It would be like a bird singing during an earthquake in the middle of a thunderstorm, and besides that, repentance isn't exactly flowing freely down the streets of every boulevard, is it?

      God honors His Word! There is a remnant that God always sees and hears.
