Today we are continuing in Romans, and read three chapters in 2 Kings.
Romans 13. Submit to government, follow the laws, pay our taxes, love your neighbor and put on Christ.
2 Kings 19. The prophet Isaiah assures deliverance from Sennacherib’s threat. Hezekiah’s prays for deliverance and Isaiah delivers the word of the LORD concerning Sennacherib. That night the Angel of the Lord slayed 185,000 men, and Sennacherib was defeated and died not long after.
2 Kings 20, Hezekiah is ill unto death, but he prays to the LORD, and his life is extended another fifteen years. From Babylon comes envoys, Hezekiah shows them every treasure in his palace, for in doing so he thinks “There will be peace for our time” just like Neville Chamberlain did before WWII.
2 Kings 21, Manasseh became King of Judah, doing more evil in the sight of the LORD than even the surrounding countries. After his death Amon Reigned and died, followed by his son, Josiah.
