2 Chronicles 23:16 – 2 Chronicles 35-15

The story in this section of scripture that stands out to me is the story of when Hezekiah tried to turn everyone back to the Lord. The people had become evil and many of the leaders had turned from the Lord. When Hezekiah became king he decided to follow the Lord and cleanse the Temple. The interesting thing is that once the Temple was clean, he sent couriers throughout the area with a letter from him calling everyone to come back to the Lord and submit to God rather than false gods. This story can be found in 2 Chronicles 30. Scripture says that, “the people scorned and ridiculed them…nevertheless, some men of Asher, Manasseh and Zebulun humbled themselves and went to Jerusalem.” (2 Chron. 30:10-11) Things haven’t changed much today. When confronted by the truth, some will accept it and humble themselves, and others will turn from it and make fun of it.
