2 Chronicles 36

1 Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and made him king in his father’s stead in Jerusalem.

Jehoahaz was twenty and three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem.

And the king of Egypt put him down at Jerusalem, and condemned the land in an hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.

And the king of Egypt made Eliakim his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem, and turned his name to Jehoiakim. And Necho took Jehoahaz his brother, and carried him to Egypt.

Jehoiakim was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God.

Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.

Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the Lord to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon.

Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and his abominations which he did, and that which was found in him, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah: and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead.

Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord.

10 And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the house of the Lord, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem.

11 Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.

12 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the Lord.

13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the Lord God of Israel.

14 Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the Lord which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.

15 And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

17 Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand.

18 And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon.

19 And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof.

20 And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia:

21 To fulfil the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.

22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,

23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lordhis God be with him, and let him go up.

  1. 9 Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord.

    I’ve always heard it said that the age of understanding for children was about 12yrs old. But if an 8yr old can reign over a kingdom and do that which was evil in the sight of the Lord then the age of understanding must be considerably less or depend on the maturity of the child. My point is, we can not take our children and their salvation for granted. We must fight for them in prayer and teach them to pray. Ultimately, they are responsible for their soul even at a young age. I want Tristan to be able to say my mother taught me how to pray.

  2. Are your actions selling your treasures?

    18 And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon.

    22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,

    23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lord his God be with him, and let him go up.

    Matthew 6:19-21

    19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

    20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

    21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    When you take things or people for granted, God will just give it to some one else that will appreciate it more than you. So don’t be a complainer, but be a praiser with thanksgiving in your heart. If you want to know where are your treasures pay attention to what you think about when your mind wonders.

    It is never too late to return to God no matter where you have been slaved, the answer is simple in 2 Chronicles 7:14 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.

    DON’T MOCK THE MAN OF GOD

    16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    If we mock the man of God, there will be wrath on us with remedy…I would rather bless the man of God.

  4. v15 And the LORD GOD of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

    GOD warned the people and they did not respond to His warning. This shows their self- will . Rejecting HIS LOVE, Mercy. Grace for a sinful lifestyle that would destroy them. Seems like history repeats itself.

    That’s where the church HIS BODY plays an important role in fulfilling OUR FATHER’S WILL and HIS PURPOSE . The church is told to go labor to seek and save the lost.
    We need the church that’s where people receive salvation, and the SPIRIT is the only way to escape the judgment of GOD.
    HE IS THE ONLY DOOR gotta come through HIM if we plan to get outta here.

    GOD hid HIS face from HIS people; but HIS mercies to Israel are everlasting. ISA.54:8

    The LORD still continues to search for fellowship because HE has a chosen bride.

  5. Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.

    And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the Lord

    Its always a tragic and sad story that unfolds when someone, especially those in leadership such as the king here, harden their hearts to God and His mouthpiece. Most recognizable, at least to me, is the pharoah that Moses delivered the children of God from. Egypt was left almost destitute it seems after all the plagues. And here the children of God are returned to bondage if they are not slain and the holy place of God is left in ruins.

    All this is allowed to take place so that the word of God can be proven true.

    To fulfil the word of the Lord by the mouth of

    Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as

  6. Submission brings freedom in bondage

    The cup of The Lord was brimming at the rim, ready to be poured out with great wrath upon the disobedient. During this time God still had a remnant who chose to obey, teach, and trust in God despite what was happening around them. Even King Zedekiah was given a way out, but he refused to heed the words of the prophet Jeremiah, and he rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar. Soon people like Daniel demonstrated the right attitude while living under tyranny.

    Matthew 22:20-21 says 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

    Jesus lived under a world government dominated by the power hungry Romans. These pagan peoples taxed, controlled, and killed anyone who stood in their way. The Jews thought that Jesus had come to overthrow this world power, and establish his kingdom on earth.

    However, in the garden Jesus told Peter if you live by the sword, you will die by the sword.

    We live in amazing times! Endtime revival, and harvest is on the horizon! God will pour his spirit out on all flesh, and miracles, signs, and wonders will be commonplace.

    Nations are surrounding Israel, Ahmadinejad has called for its annihilation, and the presidential speech from the U.N. made no mention of standing behind Israel.

    Many other signs are pointing to the imminent return of our savior.

    Our savior Jesus, Daniel, and the hebrew boys show how we are to behave and act if we find ourselves living under the reign of a world government. Not to protest, backlash, rant, and start riots, but to smile, rejoice, stand firm, and look up for our redemption draweth nigh!

  7. 16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    These people had no respect towards God’s servants, therefore they had no respect towards God. God’s wrath came upon them as punishment. We should never get to the point to where we tap into God’s wrath. Our God is a merciful God, but we must remember that he is also a consuming fire. When you play with fire, you will get burned.

  9. 22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,

    23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lordhis God be with him, and let him go up.

    He said it and put it On paper. When you just say it, it can be argued, changed, or forgotten. It was put on paper so that it would be what he said and so that others could refer to it as needed.

  10. This chapter again shows that when the leader goes bad so does those around him and those he is leading. Who is watching us? Who is following our lead? Are we doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord?

  11. 11-13 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he started out as king. He was king in Jerusalem for eleven years. As far as God was concerned, he was just one more evil king; there wasn’t a trace of contrition in him when the prophet Jeremiah preached God’s word to him. Then he compounded his troubles by rebelling against King Nebuchadnezzar, who earlier had made him swear in God’s name that he would be loyal. He became set in his own stubborn ways—he never gave God a thought; repentance never entered his mind. MSG

    Oh God help us to not have rebellion when the man of God tells/asks us to something. We as adults (parents) need to help and teach our children to have respect to the ones that rule over them. If we as parents rear up and have rebellion against our leaders what do you think our children will do? Let’s get behind our man of God (PASTOR) and help hold up his hands.

  12. FOLLOW THE LEADER

    11 Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.
    12 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the Lord.
    13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the Lord God of Israel.
    14 Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the Lord which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.

    Zedekiah, the 4th King mentioned in this chapter seems to be just another name in history. Another testimony of failed Leadership. Leadership is lost at different levels.

    1. Leadership training, abilities, qualities and disciples that is not offered or taught to future generations is lost forever.

    2. Leadership training, abilities, qualities and disciples that is not respected or followed by following generations is lost forever.

    Based on this chapter, Zedekiah’s only hope at success was for GOD to send a prophet, an angel or GOD himself to come to HIM. The fact of the wavering Leadership of Josiah seems to have triggered a spiral of evil, negative influence. Jehoahaz , Jehoiakim and 8 year old Jehoiachin all preceded Zedekiah with a heart and desire for evil. This downward spiral seemingly grew worse with each generation.

    Leadership is influence, everything rises and falls on Leadership. The passion, practices and principals of a Leader will be reproduced by the follower. The evil ways of Leadership are a ticket to evil imaginations for the people.

    14 The evil mindset spread to the leaders and priests and filtered down to the people—it kicked off an epidemic of evil, repeating the abominations of the pagans and polluting The Temple of God so recently consecrated in Jerusalem.

    I am forever thankful for the Leadership GOD has afforded me and the opportunity to share the passion, practices and principals, with the faithful team of Leaders at The Pentecostals of Fort Worth. I count it an honor to Lead a team of GOD hungry, sacrificial, faithful people of GOD. I Love you all in Jesus name.

  13. 15 And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:
    16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    God is so amazing. He always gives another chance. God will send someone into our lives if we are not doing what is right. That is Pastor. God has placed him in our lives to show us, to teach us Gods Word. If any man of God, that is anyone who has Gods anointing on them, is mocked , its not that person that you have to deal with, Its GOD Himself.

  14. 9 Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord.
    in this chapter I believe ‘monkey do, monkey see’. Jehoiachin picked this behavior by his examples that were around him.
    Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)
    It is sad to see parents allowing their children being destroyed, because the parents are so busy, selfish, and tired . They don’t make time for their children. So now at a very young age you see children out in the streets, up to no good, getting into trouble….. But deep inside crying out for love.
    I’m thankful for the church that embraces every child that comes in, and teaches them about the love of Jesus Christ!!
    But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 19:14 KJV)
    Children is our mission, and we can’t afford to lose a generation any longer to this world!!!
    I’m thankful that the LORD Has allowed me to be a part of children’s ministry for the past 14 yrs. and thank God for all the teachers that dedicate their lives to 90-120 children every week.

  15. This chapter illustrates rebellion. The king’s, the priest’s and the people all did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and they waxed worse with each day. As such many were slain and others were carried away because of their rebellion. One must open their eyes for the rebellion of this day is also exceedingly great against the Lord. Therefore it is crucial that one pray and petition Jesus for those that are in bondage, for those that have hardened their hearts, for those that are lost and for those that seek only rebellion. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  16. Remember Sunday night…Insanity: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.

    These people are crazy! How many times are these people going to allow themselves to be led by ungodly people? Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign; really… and eight year old… really?

    Now, do we allow ungodly people to speak or lead us? Who are you listening to? We should keep a close watch over who we allow to speak into our lives. We could find ourselves in similar situations of repeating horrible behavior until God allows for everything we (should) hold dear is not only taken away, but the remnants are completely destroyed.

  17. Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lordhis God be with him, and let him go up.

    The Lord is charging POFW in this day and hour, who among us will rise up and build the Lord a house in Fort Worth? Who will rise up and be the leader God has called us to be? Who will keep digging the wells, until we reach that broad place? Who will take out their sickle and begin to reap what has been sown, and continue to sow for future harvest? It’s time we rise up and be a mighty army, equipped with the power of the holy ghost and the word of God. We cannot be defeated, but just like the men in this chapter, we must make the choice to do right in the sight of the Lord. Everyone must choose for themselves, but remember our decisions effect the generations to come. If the Lord doesn’t come in the next 25 years, will their be an Apostolic, Truth preaching, Truth believing, Holy, Separated Church in Fort Worth? I believe there will be. God has called us for such a time as this. Let’s build His kingdom!

    15 And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

    16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    Proverbs 29:1-4 CEV “1 If you keep being stubborn after many warnings, you will suddenly discover you have gone too far. 2 When justice rules a nation, everyone is glad; when injustice rules, everyone groans. 3 If you love wisdom your parents will be glad, but chasing after bad women will cost you everything. 4 An honest ruler makes the nation strong; a ruler who takes bribes will bring it to ruin.”

    Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

    You are asking for destruction if you try to play games with God. There are principles in the Word that will not be violated; it is not your game, you don’t write the rules but you do get to deal with the consequences if you choose to live in a way that withholds the blessing of God. When multiple people come to you with warnings, it is time to listen. There is incredible blessing in listening, and incredible suffering in refusing to repent.

    In a season of reaping, it seems imperitive to listen to the examples of Josiah and his family: there is available blessing and cursing, we must actively choose each day which we desire to reap.

    Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: 20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

  19. Vs. 11-13, ” Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of LORD. And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel.”

    These scriptures made me think of Stephen, and what he said to the people before they stoned him. Acts 7:51, ” Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost; as your fathers did, so do ye.”

    Anytime we refuse to listen to the Man of God, whether it be Pastor or another preacher, it is an act of rebellion. Rebellion causes people to become stubborn and have a hard heart towards the things of God, and in the end these people die spiritually.

    1 Samuel 15:23 says, ” For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft; and stubborness is as iniquity and idolatry..

  20. We can see in this book the rise and fall of worship of God as symboized by the Jerusalem temple. David planned the temple; Solomon built it and them put on the greatest dedication service the world had ever seen. Worship in the temple was superbly organized. Several evil kings then defiled the temple and degraded worship so that the people revered idols more highly than God. Finally, King Nebechadnezzar destroyed the temple. The kings were gone, the temple was destroyed, and the people were removed. The nation was stripped to its very foundation. When everything in life seems stripped away from us, we still have God – his Word, his presence, and his promises.

  21. In this scripture, it is apparent that they were in dark times, as they mocked God’s messengers and despised his words, and misused his prophets. You know this kind of activity is still happening today, just be observant, and see what this world is doing! In vs. 19, you can see the effects of rebellion, or evil doings. Instead of God making your enemies your foot stool. Now God’s people became the foot stool. Evil King, Evil tidings, Evil Reaping…”Reap what you sow”. In vs. 20, now God’s kids became the servants to a foreign king or nation. Wow…do you think that was God’s original plan for Jerusalem, “NO”. That’s the effects of an Ungodly king/ruler. In vs. 23, Cyrus king of Persia, was given all the kingdoms of earth, “Really”. If, God couldn’t use his own peolple, he will use someone, but the king of Persia. “Why”….you must continue on to find this answer. But, as mentioned earlier how this same type of evil ruling is going on today. He’s going to burn it all up…..a new heaven & new earth. “Save whom you can”. “Another note, look at the king of Persia today”.

    16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    19 And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof.

    20 And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia:

    23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lordhis God be with him, and let him go up.

    “Be Church”, “Be Ready”…..iwork…igive…ipray…ireap…….

  22. From vs 1 you could tell that this whole chapter was going to be rocky for: the people of the land took Jehoahaz , Josiah’s son, and made him king. We have learned in previous scriptures that creating our own leaders is disasterous; the people wanted a king of Israel instead of being lead by God and his appointed man of God, and therefore was given Saul in
    1 Sam 15:1. When Moses was on the moutain getting the 10 commandments, the people became restless and created their own idol of a golden calf in Ex 33:4. Whenever God leaves us alone, I think he wants to see what we will do. Will we seek Him, rely on him, or result to foolishness. Scripture records those who have turned to Him for guidance, and those who have taken life into their own hands, these are typically the stories leading to disaster if no repentance and humbling is involved.

    In Gen 3 Eve was by herself close to the TKGE and the tree of life when the serpent slithered in. I believe God didnt strike the serpent dead on sight because He wanted to see what His creation would do, He had given His creation free will…but would they freely obey Him, and come to Him in times of trouble and confusion. We are never truely alone, for our God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. Like God people here in this chapter, had they turned to God in a time their leader was disobedient instead of biting the apple, or creating a golden calf, or demanding a king like carnal nations. The enemy wants you to believe the lie that you are isolated and alone to manipulate us. Stand under the covering of the Lord and be obedient to his commands and statutes even when no one seems to be around. For Jesus says in Luke 12:45 “But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk.” Jesus is coming back for a people/chruch/bride that will be loyal to Him whether it be in talents, money, position etc. Loyalty is priceless, just like Gods love and salvation.

  23. He who the Lord loves He chastises. All we hear of the evil of Persia{Iran today} It was refreshing to see Cyrus listen to the prophets and turnto the only one God. He desroyed all the vessels of God that were in the temple. They had become unclean just like the people and He spared no one. And those who did escape became servants. God had enough of His sinful people and had to teach them a sad lesson. We also need to wake up before He comes to judge the world once again!

  24. Seems like alot houses were going through bouts of extreme deseiving minds of many people. You got to the house back on the real true importance love and the word of god.
    The world has turned into theses small power struggles. At the same time thier turning from the word in doing so.

  25. 16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    It is a sad sad day when the people mock and despise the preacher. I thank God for the pastor He has given me. Thank you pastor for leading us with great vision and holding us accountable to the Word of God.

  26. 12 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the Lord.

    All too often I have seen people do the very same with pastor, when he advises many turn and walk… Lord please dont allow me to become so full of pride that I ignore your word…

  27. 16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Titus 1:16 KJV)

    Mockery is done sometimes in ignorance. That is why it so important to be in the word continually so that it corrects us in our ignorance.

    He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. (Proverbs 29:1 KJV)

    When the doctor says there is no remedy then you know you are in trouble.

    We were all in trouble till Fod robed himself in flesh and made the final remedy for our sins.

    13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the Lord God of Israel.

    But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction. (Jeremiah 17:23 KJV)

    Hard headed people go to hell.

  28. Vs 22 & 23
    The Lords words will not return to him void.

    Isaiah 55:11 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

    Jeremiah 25:11-12 New Living Translation (NLT)

    11 This entire land will become a desolate wasteland. Israel and her neighboring lands will serve the king of Babylon for seventy years.

    12 “Then, after the seventy years of captivity are over, I will punish the king of Babylon and his people for their sins,” says the LORD. “I will make the country of the Babylonians [a] a wasteland forever.

    Jeremiah 29: 10 NLT

    10 This is what the LORD says: “You will be in Babylon for seventy years. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again.

  29. 23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lordhis God be with him, and let him go up.

    If God will raise up a heathen king who charged the people of God to build the house in Jerusalem how much more should we be ready to go up and work to build the Kingdom of God.

  30. So much disobedience, things would be so much easier if the Kings of Judah were obedient and followed Gods commands. The apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree. Just because one person disobeyed the prophet it didn’t make it right for others to continue it.

    Lord I seek you

  31. There will be a time where you will be tested and it will show where your heart is leading others to. Obedience and sacrifice are the keys to great lesdership.

  32. When the king of Sin claims praise for himself

    And the king of Egypt made Eliakim his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem,

    This is why the devil tries so hard to corrupt music and musicians, he thinks that he can still praise and give it to sin, but true praisers arent intemidated. True praisers will wont moan about the trial thier going through, instead when they’ve finished “getting their praise on” they will look back and say, why look at that, I was going through a trial and I never realized it.

  33. 16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of theLord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    17 Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand.

    Right After they had risen above all the sin and had such a great restoration, Israel fall again due to leadership. Their rise and fall hinges on hinges on leadership. But here they finally get to the sad place that there is no longer a remedy and when the Chaldees come, there is no compassion-and only destruction.
    I am thankful for the leadership we have through our Pastor as well as the word of God which together, hand in hand, keep us on course.
