The Roman empire ruled for over 1000 years. Nobody could defeat them and in the end they defeated themselves thru spiritual rot. Today, the USA is the mightiest country in the world, by God's blessing. But we will not last much longer if we continue the path we have taken as a whole. Spiritual rot will destroy us, just as it ruined the mighty Roman empire. The only way we can prevent this is for us to turn away from our ways and turn back to God. If we don't do this, God will give us over to the lusts of our own desire.
When the church is fervently praying for each other and the world, great things happen. People and nations will be changed forever. The power of prayer is ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ. The world WILL be turned upside down when the church prays sincerely and fervently. Jesus tells us that we only have to ask and we will receive. So why doesn't the church turn back to the Lord and ask?
What defines a church that is real? A church that is TRUE?. We have so many different churches. Mega-churches with a budget of millions to a small country church that barely holds 20 people. But none of these make a church. Style does not make a church. Denomination does not make a church. Jesus said: "I will build My church". To make a church true, Jesus has to be Master and Lord over it.
When we pray it is seldom that we do not ask God for something. You could say that all of us are treasure hunters. We ask for His blessings. In order to receive those blessings God is telling us not to conform to the world. Instead we need to set our minds on spiritual things. On the ways of God. And only when we conformed to God are we able to find the treasure.
