2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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. ”
The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “God then encouraged Solomon by the promise that if His judgment (by drought, locusts, or a plague) should fall on the nation for their sin, they need only turn to the Lord in earnest humility and repentance and they would find forgiveness and restoration. This promise, in answer to Solomon’s prayer, was given because God’s presence among His people Israel is eternal, focused particularly on the temple. The covenant theme comes through clearly in the Lord’s declaration that if Solomon would obey Him he could be assured of God’s reciprocal blessing in the perpetuation of his dynastic rule. Conversely, if Solomon and the nation should fall away from the Lord and serve other gods they would be exiled and their magnificent temple destroyed. This does not suggest that the Davidic Covenant is conditional from God’s standpoint. He had said it would be forever. But Solomon’s (or any king’s) enjoyment of it would depend on his obedience to God. Later Solomon did worship other gods, as did many of his successors, so the nation was exiled to Babylon and the temple destroyed. Everyone who would witness the desolation of the land and the temple would know that it was a mark of God’s judgment on His people because of their sin.”
Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”

Teaching the Trivium Review from thehomeschoolmom.com
Teaching the Trivium by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn is based on the classical method of homeschooling (taking advantage of the idea that there are three distinct learning stages in a child’s life) and that children should be taught a classical, Christian education, with its emphasis on teaching languages, logic, rhetoric, literature, and history. Included is guidance on providing children a classical education and interweaving the theory of the trivium into other homeschool curricula.
10 Tips for Adjusting to Homeschooling or a New Curriculum, Part 1
1. Different philosophy; different approach. Students who have been in school have likely become accustomed to an institutional approach where work is prescribed to the class as a whole and the teacher’s attention is divided among many students. Shifting to a creative thinking approach, and working one-to-one with a parent or other home teacher, can be challenging for a student who just spent last semester trying very hard to figure out how to succeed in an institutional setting. Switching gears to this degree is quite an adjustment and might bring stress or frustration. Be understanding and acknowledge those differences as needed.
Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.
First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.
But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.
The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.
Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.
Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.
And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.
The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
