In the second part of this series, Dr. Don G. Pickney reveals more of King Hezekiah's prayer when Isaiah spoke prophetically for him to get his house in order and prepare to die due to a divine judgment upon him. At first, Hezekiah approached God self-righteously, holding up before God the good things he had done, appealing for God's mercy. With the account in 2kings and 2Chronicles there is little information about Hezekiah's prayer and journey back to health. But in Isaiah, Chapter 38, the Prophet Isaiah goes into great detail about how this miracle came to be. Astoundingly, Isaiah gave the full details of a the part of Hezekiah's prayer that brought great results.
As Hezekiah prayed, he suddenly received a revelation from God. In that part of his prayer, he began a whole new line of reasoning with Almighty God. He said, "By these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit, so shall he revive me and make me to live." Wow! As Hezekiah began using "these things" to appeal to God, not only did God suspend the judgment against Hezekiah, but he healed and delivered him, restored him speedily to health, but then God did something "mind-blowing." God went from "judgment" to the most passionate act of love towards a man ever seen in the Bible. To show his approval of Hezekiah's revelation of God's character and nature, God gave Hezekiah the choice of the universe going forward 10 degrees or backwards 10 degrees.
Few Christian believers have caught the significance of this act of God. God had to stop the whole evolution of the universe and back everything up 10 degrees. The force of light speed out through space had to REVERSE, all the existing planets in orbit had to go into REVERSE, and all the new galaxies being formed had to back up in their birth process... everything REVERSED! What was this symbolizing? Why reverse everything as a sign to Hezekiah? The Answer? God wanted to show how excited he was to REVERSE this disease which had come upon the King in judgment!
In this series, Pastor Don goes into the details of what Hezekiah revealed that cause men to live... the things which caused God to suspend Hezekiah's death sentence and "cause him to live!"
Get ready in this teaching for great biblical revelation given to Pastor Don...BY THESE THINGS MEN LIVE!
