Hwy. 60 East, Owingsville - 606-261-9263 The Weakness of the Sword In my daily Bible read- . ing I was up to the closing chapters of Second Kings; but I was studying Second Corinthians chapter ten and I noticed a contrast be- tween the Old Testament and the New Testament. In the Old Testament age, re- ligious matters were deter- mined by the power of the sword; but in the New T es- tament age “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal” (2 Corinthians 10:36). But a little history is necessary to see this contrast e Message We Shared The anxiety our nation recently experienced is light compared to what the people lof Israel faced when they pondered a fu- ture Without Moses. Deu- teronomy 18:15-22 records their dilemrha. From this passage, we find important truths for our day. God promised the people he would send a prophet like Moses who would speak all of God’s words. God knew they must have his word to move forward. We are no different. For 5410 Manasseh served as king in Judah for 55 years. He caused the nation to sin grievously before God. He set up idols in the temple of God in Jerusalem, wor- shipped the sun, moon, and stars. He shed inno- cent blood in his worship. Read 2 Kings 21 and you will see that Manasseh did everything God had forbid- den -in the Law of Moses. The religious apostasy of Manasseh was inherited by his son Josiah (2 Kings 22). Josiah was a good king. He “turned to the Lord with all his heart. . .soul. . .and might, according to the time with scripture, in prayer, and seeking a word from God. God called the Israelites to listen. We must also tru- ly listen, setting aside our own understanding and clearing away all the dis— tractions. Too many hear too little from God and hear too much from the world and evil. God told Israel he would hold them accountable. It mattered whether they listened. God- still cares whether we listen today. v COMMUNITY Law of Moses” (2 Kings 23:25). Josiah physically removed the images from the temple and picked up the sword to bring the na- tion back to God. He “ex- ecuted the priests” of Baal and other false prophets (2 Kings 2325, 14, 20, 24). Josiah “made a covenant to follow the Lord, and the people stood with him for the covenant”- (2 Kings 23:3). But the sword is weak, and the next king, Jehoahaz, “did evil in the sight of the Lord” and the people followed his lead (2 Kings 23:31-32). V Kings are powerful, accountable as well? The Israelites recalled a time when they were “over exposed” to God. They wanted a spokesman rath— er direct experience with God. That experience was too much for them. They were right We must also realize that there are limits to what we can hear and understand. Some truths will never be fully understood.
