I will heal their land”
The Temple was finally finished. The hard work of 70000regular workers, 80000 stone workers and 3600supervisors, was done. Some interior sections werecovered with gold. Precious stones were shining. The Ark was moved to the Holy of Holies. One thing was stillmissing:
the presence of God
. And Solomon is praying:
“And now arise, O Lord God, into Your resting-place”.(2Ch 6:41) A
nd God answered his prayer:
“And theglory of God filled the house” (2Ch 7:1)
faces to the ground, and worshipedand praised Jehovah, saying, For
good, forHis mercy
After 15 days of feasting Solomon returned to hishouse. But God didn’t finish speaking. God knowsour tendency to forget His blessing and to get back to our own ways. Look around and we can see allthings that brought great civilizations down. Canour nation be saved? Yes! God said:
“If My people, who are called by My name”
– we have to turn back, from our confidence in our selves to God who gives us the true confidence.
“Shall humble themselves and pray” –
we haveto turn from trusting in us to trusting in God
“Seek My face”
– we have to turn from our ownways and SEEK God.
“Turn from their wicked ways”
– we have toturn from self tolerance to self examination. When willGod heal our land? When people will turn to Him. TheBible tells us that we are going in a wrong direction andwe have to come back to the right direction. What can wedo? God’s people can bring the change and this changestarts with everyone of us. Then we will see forgiveness,healing and blessing.

Our guests fromChurch of God were Br. Dennis McGuire, theAdministrative Episcope of the Romanian churches, andhis wife, De Rosa; Br. Lazar Gog and Br. Johnny Buia.During these services the Holy Spirit moved in a mightyway. The first service was Friday night when the Word of God was preached with great power. Ignoring the badweather our brothers and sisters came to church wherethey experienced a wonderful fellowship in the Lord.Sunday morning again the presence of God was verystrong as Br. McGuire preached the Word and Br.Buia was translating. After 10 minutes of preachingthe Holy Spirit moved, the preaching was interruptedand people started to pray with tears of joy.Glory to the Lord Jesus who healed Br. Petru Avram.He was sick of diabetes. We truly appreciate our brothers who visited us and we ask the Lord toreward their love and sacrifice.
