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.
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.
Today reconciliation and unity are evident not only among government and church leaders but among Fijians and Indians. Racial tensions have eased and there is a spirit of unity in the islands.
Church leaders report that even members of the Military involved in the coup, now in prison, have become Christians and asked for forgiveness. Throughout the capital, Suva, the prisoners' loud songs of worship can be heard on the street outside the jail, as they worship Jesus in a spirit of reconciliation and hope for the future of Fiji.
This mighty revival has transformed not only individuals but whole villages in Fiji. The Fiji people have been witnessing signs and wonders—even to this day God is literally healing their land.
