WILL THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE GOSPEL BRING BACK JESUS CHRIST?
Editors Note: We still struggle to post the On-Line FreedomJournal. Beloved this side will always be an experience of contradictions and confrontations with the lost and those that come that are confused. Rest assured though that the day will come when all the confused who have rejected God and God’s people will cry out that He is King. However the dirt piled up by the wicked who have despised the righteous will tear a hole in an already tainted heart that defiled the righteous Spirit and labor in the ways of Baal.
Part 11: Hezekiah Sets The Course
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
Beloved blessed is the Truth of God, we come today leaning and depending on the Lord as He said in His word that He would never leave us are forsake us. We thank God for His promises and that inspires us to do God’s work. Brethren are there any who are unfaithful that work for the Lord? Does the mission of spreading the Gospel bring everlasting joy? Happy then and proud are the faithful for they will inherit the kingdom of Peace and Golden Paradise.
Follow us now to II Kings and God's word on a faithful king and devoted follower of the Lord.
II Kings 18:3 “And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did.”
The record shows that Hezekiah was a good and righteous king. He ruled over Judah and rendered many reforms which are recorded in the Bible (See II Kings 20:3 however we will discuss this verse as we pursue the impact of Hezekiah on our primary subject).
But now turn with us over to II Chronicles for an additional powerful word on the righteousness of Hezekiah.
II Chronicles 31: 20-21 “And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.”
“And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.”
At this place the good king Hezekiah is commended for his good work. He thus received favorable treatment from the Lord for good reason. We long to be like Hezekiah as Mike is not a righteous understanding.
Meanwhile we see the phrase “Every work” means that he had great success and prosperity in all of his endeavors with the Lord. Brethren we see here in the Old Testament the importance of the heart just as the heart will soon be the primary way to God and Christ in the New Testament. So as Hezekiah prospered with a good heart this transcended to his work for the Lord.
Here also we note a very important measure that the Lord renders to the faithful and true of heart. Those that are diligent in His service are rendered by God joy and Spirit filled heart.
