    God reminded us to diligently seek him and turn away from evil. Only by accepting Jesus as the Rock of our salvation we will be save. We must thanked the blood of Jesus think his blood and talk about his blood. Praise him only for he is worthy amen

    Humility is really important in order to claim God's promises. Healing and forgiveness are God's grace we need. 2Chronicles 7:14 is really good and helpful!

    To Queen Iris - yes, 2 Chr.7:14 is great, but it's not the 'steps' to salvation; Acts 2:37, "What must we DO?" Then Peyer's answer - Acts 2:38. In v. 37 the 'do' denotes - ACTION; not passive assent. Just stop and remember what Jesus DID for us. Pick up your CROSS and follow me. Not a literal cross, but whatever is in your life that is hard. We must 'bear' it and obey His commandments, Jn.14:15,23

    This passage of scripture is so powerful only if America would Hear he the Word of the Lord! We have to turn from our WICKED ways before God destroys America! I agree with the previous writer. We taken prayer our of school. We changed what God designed as Marriage as man taking a wife! We don't make our children pray at home or at the dinner table! We are letting homosexuals get married and adopt children! We are just leading a destructive life as though we don't believe God is coming back! I love this verse because it bet clear on what God is going to do if America does Repent! May God bless and keep America!
