6.6.2020 – words ridicule God

words ridicule God
I, I, I, I, I, I, but
God knows where you are

Came across the passage in the Bible where Isaiah prophesies Sennacherib’s fall.

Isaiah sent word to Hezekiah, King of Judah, that God had heard the Kings prayer concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, who was planning to attack Judah.

The Book of 2nd Kings, Chapter 19 records that Isaiah said to the King, “This is the word that the Lord has spoken against him.

Who is it you have ridiculed and blasphemed?
Against whom have you raised your voice and lifted your eyes in pride?
Against the Holy One of Israel!
By your messengers you have ridiculed the Lord.

And you have said,
“With my many chariots I have ascended the heights of the mountains, the utmost heights of Lebanon.
I have cut down its tallest cedars, the choicest of its junipers.
I have reached its remotest parts, the finest of its forests.
I have dug wells in foreign lands and drunk the water there.
With the soles of my feet I have dried up all the streams of Egypt.”

But I know where you are and when you come and go and how you rage against me.
Because you rage against me and because your insolence has reached my ears, I will put my hook in your nose and my bit in your mouth, and I will make you return by the way you came.’

These passages struck me this morning as I read my Bible.

God has seen this type of behavior before.

God has dealt with this type of behavior before.

God will deal with this type of behavior again.

I almost feel sorry for old Sennacherib.

His army ended not facing the army of Hezekiah but an Angel of the Lord.

An Angel of the Lord who killed 185,000 of Sennacherib’s men overnight.

Sennacherib later died by swords held by the hands of his sons, who were eager to take over.

Like the feller said, better for us the we can work things out with Jesus before we have to work things out with his Dad.
