Turning back to God

For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children [shall find] compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God [is] gracious and merciful, and will not turn away [his] face from you, if ye return unto him. (2 Chronicles 30:9)

Reflection

This verse simply states the wonderful character of the God we serve. He is abounding in grace and compassion as He is faithful to never leave His children. Could there be any better promise? To consider the gracious nature of our God only causes us to rejoice and praise His magnificent name!

Christ reunifies us by the pouring out of His Blood. God sent His son to die to re-invite us into his promises, His everlasting all powerful presence. Christ completed this request of the Father on the cross. While it was yet His death it was our life He was making everlasting through the sacrifice. If, we were to turn again back unto God He would have compassion before us. God is asking for repentance. It does not matter of sin, what you have done. He is asking for repentance so that He can give you grace and mercy.

Repentance

g3340  or  metanoeo (me-tä-no-e’-ō)“to change one’s mind or purpose”to change one’s mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one’s past sins, involving a change for the better, an amendment.

The word is found in the Synoptic Gospels (in Luke, nine times), in Acts five times, in the Apocalypse twelve times, eight in the messages to the churches, Rev 2:5 (twice), 16, 21(twice), RV, “she willeth not to repent” (2nd part); Rev 3:3, 19 (the only churches in those chapters which contain no exhortation in this respect are those at Smyrna and Philadelphia); elsewhere only in 2Cr 12:21.

Observing today in the Christian culture, we hear very little about repentance and what its exact origin means. Repentance is apart of growing as a Christian. There is not one Christian who does not feel the pressures of the world and find themselves drifting or backsliding. It should not be normal, however today it is “normal” Its evident to the age we are in that humility and acknowledging our self or flesh is not in check.

I believe we are in these times related to the letter in 2 Timothy

2 Timothy 3 :: New King James Version (NKJV)

Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
Repentance has been replaced with promises of wealth and prosperity, idealism causing pride within ourselves that would share with the future generations a lack of leadership and a  disrespect to their parents, guiding our children into captivity of sin and unholiness. This is something that.
Very Simply God wants to set us free from anything we are struggling with. Break through and Deliverance is important as we begin to walk as a Christian. We are not going to be perfect in how we carry out what we have read or found, but if we continue to humble ourselves (Repent) and strive with all our efforts He sees our heart and knows we are pressing in to Him cause we Love Him. He will uplift you, strengthen you, encourage you, and set you apart to be made know as His. What a wonderful God we serve! Amen?
