But if you abandon Me and disobey the laws and commands I have given you, and if you go and worship other gods, then I will uproot the people of Israel from this land of mine that I have given them. I will reject this Temple that I have set apart to honor my name. I will make it a spectacle of contempt among the nations. And though this Temple is impressive now, it will become an appalling sight to all who pass by. They will ask, Why has The Lord done such terrible things to his land and His Temple?!!! And the answer will be, Because his people abandoned The Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and they worshipped other gods instead. That is why He brought these disasters upon them.
2 Chronicles 6:19-42
(26) When the heavens are shut up, and there is no rain because they have sinned against you, when they pray toward this place and confess your name, and turn sin because You afflict them.
(27) then hear from heaven and forgive the sins of your servants, your people Israel. Teach them what is right, and send rain on your land, that you have given to your people as their special possession.
(30) then hear from heaven where you live, and forgive. Give your people whatever they deserve, for you alone know the human heart.
(42) O Lord God, do not reject your anointed one. Remember your unfailing love for your servant David.
So I looked for a man among men that would make a wall and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
(1) You have rejected us, O God, and broken our defenses. You have been angry with us, now restore us to your favor.
(2) You have shaken our land and split it open. Seal the cracks before it completely collapses.
(3) You have been very hard on us, making us drink wine that that sent us reeling.
(4) But You have raised a banner for those who honor You—- a rallying point in the face of attack.
In that day The Lord will make Himself known to the Egyptians. Yes they will know The Lord and give their sacrifices and offerings to Him. They will make promises to The Lord and keep them.
(22) The Lord will strike Egypt in a way that will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to The Lord, and He will listen to their pleas and heal them.
When a nation or a people defile a land which God has given them, (for gifts of God are expressions of His Love ) His blessings become defiled.
Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other god’s and worship them. (17) lest The Lord’s anger be aroused. Against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which The Lord is giving you. (18) therefore you shall lay up these words of Mine in your heart and in your soul, bind them on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. (19) you shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, when you rise up. (20) And you shall wrote them on the door-post of your house and ers your gates. (21) that your days and the days of your may be multiplied in the land of which The Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth. (22) For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do-to loveThe Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, and to hold fast to Him—(23) then The Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and, and you will dis-possess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. (24) Every Place on which the soul of your foot treads shall be yours; from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. (25) No man shall be able to stand against you; The Lord your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to too.
When the heavens are shut up and there is no rain because they have sinned against You, when they pray toward this place, and confess Your name, and turn from their sin because you afflict them. (36) Then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your servants, your people Israel, that you may teach them the good way in which they should walk; and send rain on your land which You have given to Your people as an inheritance.
