The enemy threatens and intimidates.Ultimately he wants us to trust him and not God. The evil devil desires just one thing-all the attention and worship. King Hezekiah was in the most challenging phase of his life. As the Assyrian army came and attacked the cities from Syria till Jerusalem, no city was able to stand against this invasion. The Assyrian King Sennacherib wanted to rule the world and with that intention, he started the conquest. He razed down around 46 cities until there was only one city remaining which was Jerusalem. He decided not to attack Jerusalem as he demanded a hefty tribute. Hezekiah in his foolishness emptied the treasury and scrapped off the gold and silver from the temple and gave the tribute to Sennacherib. The wicked Assyrian ruler changed his mind and came back to besiege Jerusalem. The Assyrian messenger came and gave a persuasive speech to the people of Jerusalem to not to trust the King. King Hezekiah charged the inhabitants not to utter a word back. Rabshakeh , the messenger tried alluring the inhabitants to surrender to the Assyrian king as he promised a land like their own and materialistic gains. When you hear a voice that convince you to distrust God,rebuke it immediately in the name of Jesus. In the New Testament times we are given authority over every power of the enemy. Retaliate by declaring the word of God back to enemy who comes in with facts. There is no fact greater than the fact of God's word! Let's put our hope in God's word and be deaf to the whisperings of the enemy.For further reading:Psalm 68:1-3, Matthew 4:1-11..
