King Hezekiah, Nooooo…
What just happened? He was just given a new lease in life, and the sun (and all thing in the universe related to it) just moved in reverse for Hezekiah. Then he makes this move of showcasing everything in the kingdom to these envoys sent by the king of Babylon. Isaiah confronts him, then prophesies one of the hardest times in Israel’s history. Hezekiah says to this “it is good”, thinking “anyway it’s not going to be my problem”.
I… I don’t understand God’s people. Yes, even myself. The Bible is full of stories of men who have spiritual highs then immediately followed by spiritual lows. What strange, strange creations we are.
