A need for HUMILITY


2 Chronicles 7:14

King James Version

14 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.

To know about repentance, you must be humble.

Only thing is, the world belongs to the fallen one.

The one full of pride, and venom.

The father of lies.

He wanted GOD's throne.

He was jealous of JESUS.

The enemy seeks to destroy us all.

Pride is his nature.

Isaiah 14:11-14

King James Version

11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, 

and the noise of thy viols: 

the worm is spread under thee, 

and the worms cover thee.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, 

O Lucifer, son of the morning! 

how art thou cut down to the ground, 

which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, 

I will ascend into heaven, 

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: 

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, 

in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; 

I will be like the most High.

And this was his end:

Isaiah 14:15-20

King James Version

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, 

to the sides of the pit.

16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, 

and consider thee, saying, 

Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, 

that did shake kingdoms;

17 That made the world as a wilderness, 

and destroyed the cities thereof; 

that opened not the house of his prisoners?

18 All the kings of the nations, 

even all of them, lie in glory, 

every one in his own house.

19 But thou art cast out of thy grave 

like an abominable branch, 

and as the raiment of those that are slain, 

thrust through with a sword, 

that go down to the stones of the pit; 

as a carcase trodden under feet.

20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, 

because thou hast destroyed thy land, 

and slain thy people: 

the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

Revelation 20:10

King James Version

10 And the devil that deceived them 

was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, 

where the beast and the false prophet are, 

and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Pride ensures a fall.

Proverbs 16:18

King James Version

18 Pride goeth before destruction, 

and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Let us be humble, before our HUMBLE LORD.

JESUS taught us humility.

He went to the CROSS for our sins.

He bore all the pain, the shame, and death.

Philippians 2:8

King James Version

8 And being found in fashion as a man, 

he humbled himself, 

and became obedient unto death, 

even the death of the cross.

JESUS is our living example for love, peace, joy, humility, obedience, and glory.

Let us follow the LORD.

John 3:3-7

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

Galatians 5:16-18

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, 

ye are not under the law.
