If, and a Triple Promise
“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” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Called by the name of the LORD, we are nevertheless erring men and women. What a mercy it is that our God is ready to forgive! Whenever we sin let us hasten to the mercy seat of our God, seeking pardon. We are to humble ourselves. Should we not be humbled by the fact that after receiving so much love we yet transgress? O LORD, we bow before Thee in the dust and own our grievous ingratitude. Oh, the infamy of sin! Oh, the sevenfold infamy of it in persons so favored as we have been! Next, we are to pray for mercy, for cleansing, for deliverance from the power of sin. O LORD, hear us even now, and shut not out our cry. In this prayer we are to seek the LORD’s face. He has left us because of our faults, and we must entreat Him to return. O LORD, look on us in Thy Son Jesus, and smile upon Thy servants. With this must go our own turning from evil; God cannot turn to us unless we turn from sin. hen comes the triple promise of hearing, pardon, and healing. Our Father, grant us these at once, for our LORD Jesus Christ’s sake.

This documentary has been on my list of must see movies for quite some time now. I was finally able to watch the movie yesterday evening.
The plot of the documentary is simple: What is the core gospel of Christianity as defined by scripture and what does the American Gospel consist of and is it the same?
Here the American Gospel is defined broadly as the word-faith ministeries such as Joel Osteen’s ministry, Benny Hinn’s ministry, and others.
The documentary looks at the teachings of Christ and the apostles as found in the Bible and compares them to what the word-faith teachers regarding healing, suffering, and money. The contrast between scripture and them is obvious and radically different than what is espoused by the word-faith teachers.
I think this is an important film that needs to shown in every church to let church goers see exactly what is being fed to thousands of people everywhere that these programs are broadcasted. Whether you are in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, or Billings Montana you can be bombarded by these heretical teaching. And the more people know what the real Gospel is and what it does and doesn’t do the better.
So go watch this movie, invite friends over and then talk with them about the Gospel.
