2 Kings 19

1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

2 And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

8 So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.

9 And when he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,

10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

11 Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?

12 Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar?

13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, of Hena, and Ivah?

14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

16 Lord, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.

17 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,

18 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

19 Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.

20 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.

21 This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

22 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

23 By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.

24 I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.

25 Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.

26 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the house tops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

27 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.

28 Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

29 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.

30 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.

31 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.

32 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.

33 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.

34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

36 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

37 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

  1. 15. And Hezekiah prayed this prayer before the LORD: “O LORD, God of Israel, you are enthroned between the mighty cherubim! You alone are God of all the kingdoms of the earth. You alone created the heavens and the earth. NLT

    I know God likes to hear us pray like this, but I believe that sometimes it does us more good than it does Him – when we are in troubling situations, we need to remind ourselves who He is, what He has done, and still can do.

    Holy, wonderful, marvelous, glorious,
    Omnipotent, righteous, and mighty.

    Lord, we praise You, we lift You up,
    We magnify, we glorify, we exalt You,
    We extol You, we adore You, hallelujah…

  2. saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.

    33 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.

    34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

    35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

  3. 2 Kings 19:18-19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them. Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.

    This is how we should always pray when we come before God. If we noticed he didn’t ask for God to do anything specific on how to deal with situation.
    We tend to forget why we Gid to intervene in our life’s problems. Many time he won’t intervene before of one simple thing, he will not receive the credit. When the king went before God all he asked was, How can you get the glory out of this God? Do what you need to do so every one can know that you are God alone!

    He’s got it and if you pray this too, just see what God will do!

  4. 34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

    My GOD IS FAITHFUL TO HIS!!!
    FIRST OF ALL, LAST OF ALL AND EVERYTHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM!!! KINGS AND QUEENS WILL PASS BUT MY GOD WILL FOREVER BE!!!

  5. 3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
    God wants His church to bring forth fruit and multiply. Whenever there is no fruit he rebukes it just like he did the fig tree. .. We must make sure that we are ready to receive the harvest and increase that God has for us and have the spiritual strength to bear fruit.

  6. 14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

    When ever we get news, especially when it is not “good news” we need to take it before the Lord and listen to what He says. As the song says ” Who’s report will you believe? We shall believe the report of the Lord.”

  7. 6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

    So whose report are you going to believe? Are you going to believe the report of the Lord or the report of the world? The world may be giving you bad news in your life right, whether it be health or work or finances. But the report of the Lord for your life is greater than their report. So have faith and believe that God’s plan for your life will surely come, not the report the world is trying to give you.

  8. iLove to Grow in the Word
    2 Kings 19:35 NLT That night the angel of the LORD went out to the Assyrian camp and killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. When the surviving Assyrians woke up the next morning, they found corpses everywhere.

    The angel of the Lord killed 185,000 soldiers…WOW, there are more for us than against us. Judah did not even have to lift a finger, God did the miracle all by himself. The one thing the leader did however was pray and seek out the man of God. This biblical illustration is very powerful and very inspiring. Who in the world are we going to fear when the angel of the Lord can take out 185,000 by himself. (That’s like going to Arlington and standing between AT&T Stadium and Globe Life park with both filled to capacity full of people.)

  9. NO FEAR

    6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

    The scripture defines our adversary as the accuser of the brethren. An accusation is a report of wrong. A bad news press conference or time of negative influence. Hezekiah, King of Judah had heard and received the threats of the Assyrian king and sought direction from the man of GOD.

    The response from Isaiah reveals there was fear in the heart of Hezekiah. However we are not given the spirit of fear, but POWER, LOVE and A SOUND MIND. Too often believers take what the adversary says as an absolute. When we should be declaring the WORD of GOD as the ABSOLUTE.

    Remember when people violate or intimidate us they are also violating and intimidating the LORD our GOD (JESUS).

    We should face the adversary with great hope, faith and confidence that our GOD will have HIS way.

  10. Are you ready to speak to God?

    Hezekiah prayed to the Lord in the time of need. He did not have to offer up sacrifices first or some other elaborate plea of forgiveness – he was ready to pray. Has there been a time in your life where you knew what was right, wrong, good and evil and chose the wrong path? Maybe you didn’t murder someone but chose to partake in a little sin. Nobody got hurt and only the Lord and you knew of this “miss-step”. During this time of distance did the need to pray come upon you? Did you feel shame to ask the Lord for something; knowing you had no right to stand in his presence and ask for something.

    I have been there. I was raised in the church and knew the correct path, most of my adult life. However, there was a time I was uncovered; and the scary part is I knew I was uncovered. There was a time when an emergency presented itself to my life and I felt that sting of shame and a hesitancy to call on the name of the Lord. How and why would Jesus hear my plea; I turned my back on Him. I pray that no one ever feels the hopelessness associated with being distant from the Lord in a time of need.

  11. 3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

    God help us to ever stay in your ways so that when children are to be birthed we will have the strength to do it. Not allowing anything to distract us from your ultimate will. We cannot allow unborn spiritual babies to be aborted because of no strength to birth them. This is why we must continually be nourished in unity, the word, fasting and faithfulness to the house of God. Having the strength to birth the children God is wanting to bring in to the kingdom.

  12. 19 Now, O Lord our God, rescue us from his power; then all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you alone, O Lord, are God.” (NLT)

    For Your glory Lord, show Yourself mighty and show this world that You alone are God! Hezekiah was presented with facts from the enemy of how they had defeated many cities. Like Hezekiah though, we need to rely more on our faith than the facts because God will always be victorious in the end!

  13. 15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

    Hezekiah prayed for his people as well as we should to praying for our people

  14. 14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

    15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

    16 Lord, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.

  15. Why do they put on sackcloth?

    1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

    2 And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

    3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
    Sackcloth is a meaning of repentance, mourning and debasement. When Hezekiah went before the Lord he went in with a repentance and mourning heart. What is happening to the churches today is we do not have a sincere repentance heart. We ask God to forgive us but we don’t turn away from our sins, we get just enough of God to make us feel good. We have got to get the mind set that God will forgive us but we have to sometimes forgive ourselves also. As with sackcloth being uncomfortable we need to be uncomfortable when we are hearing the truth and doing nothing about it, it should make us uncomfortable. We need to come humbly and boldly before God’s throne and pray for our city, our children that are backslid, and our church.
    Have a blessed day in Jesus Name!!

  16. 2 Kings 19:30
    “And you who are left in Judah, who have escaped the ravages of the siege, will put roots down in your own soil and will grow up and flourish.” (NLT)

    POFW has put roots down at 10264 Westpoint Blvd. NOW it’s time to GROW and Flourish.

  17. 9 Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.

  18. 3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
    4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.
    5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
    6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
    7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

    Leaving it in God’s hands! Although we believe it does not mean we will not be persecuted or challenged by the adversary. I’m highly thankful that in the midst of a storm God can provide the strength and solution to get me through! No matter what the enemy may try to attack me with , or what fear he may try to bring there is a God worth serving even if it cost my life! “Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” ‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬.

  19. 15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

    19 Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.

    Worthy God, Wiorthy God, You alone are worthy!

  20. 35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

    36 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

    37 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

    God had a plan for Sennacherib the entire time. He was killed by his own sons as he worshipped idols. It’s not the will of God for us to turn away from him but to seek him. He’s the all powerful Lord of Lord King of Kings. You don’t know when the Lord is going to send an Angel to destroy the enemy. I give God the glory for all his good works.

  21. 32 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.
    33 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.
    34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
    35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

    Let the Lord battle for you. For he will win. Some times we need to let go and let God.

  22. 15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

    We need to pray before the Lord everyday because he is God and God alone!!

  23. 4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

    5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

    6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

    I have been struggling to get closer to GOD; with the issues going on. These verses remind me that as long as I stay faithful and seek GOD for every situation that arises; the enemy will have no foothold in my life. Instead of giving into the temptation of giving up. I NEED TO FIGHT and that battle will only be won with GOD right there with me. Thank you Jesus for being the light that I seek, my rock and chief cornerstone in the storm that I face……….AMEN!!!!!!!!!!

  24. 14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

    Sometimes you just have to lay things out before the Lord for direction. When we listen to too many opinions or suggestions we can open ourselves up to a spirit of confusion. Take it to the Lord in prayer. Give God time to speak and direct our steps. It doesn’t matter what man says, as long as we know what God says!

  25.  Lord, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.

  26. 2 Kings 19:33-34 (GNT with Deuterocanon)
    33 He will go back by the same road he came, without entering this city. I, the Lord, have spoken. 34 I will defend this city and protect it, for the sake of my own honor and because of the promise I made to my servant David.'”

    In the Bible the Assyrian is another name for the antichrist.

    Isaiah 31:8 (KJV Strong’s)
    8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man;
    and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him:
    but he shall flee from the sword,
    and his young men shall be discomfited.

    Just as this Assyrian was taken out so shall the epitome of worldliness and political prowess be cast down.

    The enemies best card is already trumped by the Lord Jesus Christ.

  27. 1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

    2 And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

    3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

    4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

    What best advice to follow when news of trouble came to go into the house of the Lord and seek the man of God for counsel.

  28. “Hast thou not heard…”
    Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.

    Too often we allow what has been spoken to escape our memory. Yet, the bible says the word became flesh and was among us and still is among us today for we are the living epistles of His Word. When we allow His word to escape our lives we are also allowing God to fade into the distance. Which in return all that he brings with Him is no longer close to us. He is healing, live, and light. When we find ourselves in a position of needing something that He is we must shake ourselves and we are not holding onto what we’ve heard but what we see and feel. Have you not heard who He is?

  29. “And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.” The word of God (Creator) recorded what the king (leader) prayed. What a leader proclaims makes a difference, as many will follow, even if it is wrong. This is a guideline for which all leaders should pray, unless it is of course that they do not believe as Hezekiah. This is also all the more reason why one should pray and seek the one and only God (Jesus) for one’s self. Dear God, remove confusion, corruption, and deceptiveness. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  30. 32 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.

    33 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.

    34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

    35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

    When our battles are in the hands of Lord, we have nothing to worry about. We have the victory.

  31. “For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.” Once again we read how the walk and works of David helped make a difference. We may never realize or know if what we are sowing is even right, unless we pray and read the word of the Lord. God help us to seek your will before our own so that we may do what is right, in Jesus name.

  32. We never know whom we may be investing time into! For many it could be simply as the things we say or do! Someone is always watching us! Many people are in this world crying out for answers that only Jesus can provide! We are called to be a light unto this world! In this chapter we find David once again of how he was able to make a Impact and a difference! Seek ye FIRST the KINGDOM OF GOD! Seek GOD FIRST in ALL you DO!

  33. The captions for this chapter in the CEV start with “Hezekiah Asks Isaiah the Prophet for Advice:, then “Hezekiah Prays” and “The Lord’s Answer to Hezekiah”. We see how Hezekiah asked for advice, prayed about it and then the Lord answered. Philippians 4:6-7 MSG says “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”

  34. Spiritual Abortion

    3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

    This is the church that has lots of guest but the ministers are not conditioned spiritually to see and meet their needs. This is like an expecting mother full of joy ready to give birth to their hopes and dreams in their new baby and the doctor telling her the baby is fine but he will die because you don’t have the ability to give birth to him. Why would we put all the effort into outreach and getting people to the church if we cannot assimilate them when they arrive. Are we dumping them at birth or worse they are not being born because we are not able to push?

  35. Hezekiah understood who to take his problems to. Too many Christians try to handle their issues the wrong way and then wonder why they are in trouble. When you take your problem to the Lord, he knows how to work it out.

  36. Isaiah tells Hezekiah that there will be no harvest in the literal sense. In the traditional sense, until the third year. The first year the people of Judah will only eat the fruit of those plants they have grown naturally; the next, they will eat from the crops that come by those plants’ seeds. In the third year normal planting and harvesting will resume. A sign of life returning back normal. Isaiah makes this prophecy while Sennacherib besieges Jerusalem. He’s already conquered every other city in Judah. Why would Jerusalem escape? Because of the prayers of their godly king Hezekiah (vs 20). God is punishing Judah for their sins; however he stops short of complete destruction because of Hezekiahs intercession. A staggering number of Sennacherib’s soldiers die in one night, and he returns to Nineveh without conquering Jerusalem (vs 35-36). I’m doing so he responds to Hezekiahs prayer and keeps his word to David to continue his line on the throne and not kill all his people. God keeps his word and hears us in our prayer even when it’s in punishment of sin.

  37. “Hezekiah prayed to the Lord. He said, “Lord, you are the God of Israel. You sit on your throne between the cherubim. You alone are God over all of the kingdoms on earth. You have made heaven and earth. Listen, Lord. Hear us. Open your eyes, Lord. Look at the trouble we’re in. Listen to what Sennacherib is saying. You are the living God. And he dares to make fun of you!”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭19:15-16‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Lord you are God alone! You have the finally say in our lives. Lord speak!

    “The Lord said, “Hezekiah, here is a miraculous sign for you. “This year you will eat what grows by itself. In the second year you will eat what grows from that. But in the third year you will plant your crops and gather them in. You will plant your grapevines and eat their fruit. The people of Judah who are still alive will be like plants. Once more they will put down roots and produce fruit. Out of Jerusalem will come those who remain. Out of Mount Zion will come those who are still left alive. “My great love will make sure that happens. I rule over all.”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭19:29-31‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

  38. “And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭19:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  39. 34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

    35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

  40. 2 Kings 19:35 NLT That night the angel of the LORD went out to the Assyrian camp and killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. When the surviving Assyrians woke up the next morning, they found corpses everywhere.

    Wow!!!!! When the angel of the Lord is upon us. Sometimes we don’t rely how much God protects us. He protects us from so many dangers that are in this world because we are under His GLORY. This is why I always send angels to encamp over loved ones because I know of the great power my God has. Nothing is impossible for HIM!!!!!! Hallelujah Praise God!!!!

  41. Hezekiah’s prayer.
    15 And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said, O Lord God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
    16 Lord, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
    17 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,
    18 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.
    19 Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.

  42. 4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

    When someone comes against us and declares our God can’t save us, don’t believe it! The battle is not ours, it’s the Lords. God hears and will answer so speak victory into your situation. Rebuke fear and build up your faith!

  43. 16 Lord, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
