Audio Reading: 2 Kings 18: 13-19:37 Acts 21:1-17

King Hezekiah comes under  intense Psychological warfare from the invading King Sennacherib.  This invading King tells the people:

“Dont let Hezekiah deceive you. He will never be able to rescue you from my power. Don’t let him fool you into trusting in the LORD by saying: “The LORD will surely rescue us. This city (Jerusalem) will never fall into the hands of the Assyrian King.”  2 Kings 18:29-30

How did Hezekiah handle this intense Psy op?  What did he do?  This age old battle tactic is still used today. Do you recognize it?  How does it display in the mainstream media?  Psyops are meant to cause people to be fearful, to be paralyzed, and to quit and give up. How shall we handle the intense pysops today? What can we glean from King Hezekiah?

What does it Take To Turn an Entire Nation Around?

King Josiah discovers the Torah scroll buried in the rubble of the Temple. He reads it, and then rips his robes in repentance. He then begins to tear down all the Asherah poles, the places of Baal worship and he cleanses his kingdom from these detestable idols.

The scripture says:
“Never before had there been a King like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart, and soul, and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses. And there has never been a king like him since.”  2 Kings 23:25
