Here we go! Please read 2 Kings 15:32-38, 2 Chronicles 27, Micah 1, 2 Kings 16:1-9, 2 Chronicles 28:1-15, and Isaiah 7. Lots happening, we’re busy today. What stands out to you in the Word as you read these passages?
Beyond allowing the sex and religion shrines, Ahaz even participated in them. Even with all of his evil, God tells him to ask for a sign:
“God spoke again to Ahaz. This time he said, ‘Ask for a sign from your God. Ask anything. Be extravagant. Ask for the moon!’ ” (Isaiah 7:10-11 MSG)
God never presents something to us which He is not willing to give. I don’t know why Ahaz rejects this offer, maybe he’s afraid. God gives him the sign anyway: a virgin will bear a Child. We know Who this is! I am comforted that God had a plan in place to redeem me, even 500 years and more in advance of Jesus’ birth.
