Scripture: Isaiah 37:21,28-29,35-38
Isaiah 37:21 says, “Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria…’” Verses 28-29 state, “But I know your dwelling place, Your going out and your coming in, And your rage against Me. Because your rage against Me and your tumult Have come up to My ears, Therefore I will put My hook in your nose And My bridle in your lips, And I will turn you back By the way which you came.” Because Hezekiah prayed, Isaiah got a word about exactly what would happen to Sennacherib. God would put a hook in his jaw, turn him around and take him back to his own country and he would die there. His prayer was answered. While Hezekiah was surrounded by Sennacherib’s army, the Lord sent an angel. Verses 35-38 state, “’For I will defend this city, to save it For My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.’ Then the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went away, returned home, and remained at Nineveh. Now it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Then Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place.” Hezekiah found the anointing of Jesus a prophet like Moses and dared walk in it. We are the sons of the prophets and have access to the same anointing! Let’s represent the King Who created the heavens and the earth! It is time we started acting like the believers the Bible says we are!
