“It is my conviction that we are never
going to have revival until God has brought the church of Jesus
Christ to the point of desperation.”
The 2nd Chronicles 7:14 principle
If My people, who are called by My name, shall
humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My
face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven,
forgive their sin, and heal their land.
God takes repentance and reconciliation, as described
in 2nd Chronicles, very seriously, He really does send blessing
'where brothers live together in unity. The events in Fiji
are one of the clearest signs of God's pleasure and action following
societal repentance. God wants to be invited into our communities.

In May 2000, Fiji experienced ethnic tensions between
Indians and indigenous Fijians which sparked a military coup attempt
led by Fijian Nationalist George Speight. The government was held
hostage for 56 days. Violence and chaos ruled the city. Just as
its people were becoming helpless, a tremendous thirst for God and
a spirit of personal soul-searching swept through the churches.
The people in Fiji prayed that God would restore
a government that would stabilize the nation, that would unite the
various fragments of society in this country.
The President of Fiji, Ratu Josefa Iloilo, called
the churches to unite in prayer and God began answering the cries
of His people.
In July 2000, Speight and
his followers were arrested but the previous government was not
restored to power. Instead, God raised up leaders who honored Him.
The Prime Minister of Fiji shocked a crowd of ten thousand people
as he boldly and publicly confessed his faith in God. "Our
efforts in building this country will come to nothing, if they are
not rooted firmly in the love and fear of God. I ask Him to forgive
me for the times I have been neglectful and cold in my relationship
with Him. With Your guidance, Lord, this sinner will renew himself;
will find new purpose in the pursuit of Your will. Lord, I entreat
You, again, to forgive me, to save me, to capture my heart and hold
my hand. I honor you as the King of Kings."
