Hezekiah - Brief Lessons on Church Truths
DescriptionHEZEKIAH: OR, BIBLE LESSONS ON CHURCH TRUTH.
2 CHRONICLES XXIX.
A BRIEF OUTLINE OF LECTURES ON HEZEKIAH.
It is important to notice, that, at this time, both Judah and Israel had utterly departed from the Lord. Sad, and low indeed, was Judah's condition, as described in chapter xxviii.; all was wrong; all apostasy and idolatry. What a hopeless picture! But a picture drawn for us - written for us. Is it not a picture of all around? A man said to me the other day, as an excuse for remaining in what he knew to be wrong, "I have read, and compared the Acts, the early days of the church, with all I see now; and all is so different from what I read, that I have no hope of things being right, and so I go on as I am." In contrast with this man, we read of Hezekiah, " And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord." (Ver. 2.) Yes, in the midst of all that was wrong, he did that which was right; and mark, not in his own sight, not in his own opinion, hut in THE SIGHT OF THE LORD. This, then, is the foundation-principle of our present lesson: God can raise up a man, can enable His child, to do that which is right
"And he reared up the pillars before the temple ... and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin (He will establish)"
