2 Chronicles 36
Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin and Zedekiah. Four kings, four failures, four men that ignore the warnings of God, but God being compassionate with his people.
v15) God sent his word to them through his messengers, again and again. But they were mocked. Finally, enough is enough.
v16) God’s wrath was so great, there was no escape. Does this look familiar today People rejecting God’s word ! And why ?
v12) Pride. …the King did evil in the eyes of the Lord and would not humble himself.
v13) Hard Heart. … he became stubborn and hard hearted and would not turn to the Lord.
v14) Outside influence …following all the detestable practices of the (pagan) nations.
v16) Did not believe the warnings …they mocked God’s messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets.
We need to be reminded that ignoring God’s warnings will bring destruction. Even though God is patient and compassionate when His people continue to reject His word, judgement is certain.
Thanks be to God, for Jesus our Salvation Pray that others will see this hope that we have at this time.
