Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Kings 21:10 - 22:20)
“The Life-Changing Power of God’s Word”
Text: 2 Kings 22:11
“Now it happened, when the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, that he tore his clothes.”
“The Life-Changing Power of God’s Word,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Wow! Each one of us can testify to this Truth: God’s Word Is Life Changing! Our life is never the same after we Meet God’s Word, and tear our clothes of sin off with tears of confession and repentance!
This is what Josiah did when “he heard the words of the Book of the Law!” Then he commanded Hilkiah the High Priest to “go and inquire of the Lord for me…”
The High Priest Hilkiah was the father of the Prophet Jeremiah (Jer.1:1), and Jeremiah began his ministry during the reign of King Josiah.
This godly influence explains how this great-grandson of King Hezekiah had a tender heart at 8 years old when he was made king; after his father Amon was assassinated. In 2 Chron.34:2-3 we read that at 16 “he began to seek the God of his father David, and at 20 he began to purge the entire nation of idolatry! Now, at 26 he hears the words of the Book of the Law; and in the horror of knowing God’s Judgement for Judah’s sins he tears his clothes in Repentance!
Many believe this “book” that was found was a copy of Deuteronomy 28, 29, 30, and 31; that contains the detailed blessings for Obedience and judgements for Disobedience.
This is the Life-Changing Power of God’s Word! When God’s Word is Read, Spoken, Heard, and Obeyed It Changes Your Life Forever! Ooooh Rah!
Listen up Warrior! This is why the Faithful Warrior feeds upon God’s Word every day; as we feed our flesh for nourishment so we must feed our Spirit with God’s Word. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with Jesus and being continuously filled with Holy Spirit our Helper Is How We Are Empowered To Shine In This Hour of Spiritual Darkness Today!
Again, how do you and I Live IN this World in these last days?
By staying Full of Holy Spirit AND Full of The Life-Changing Power of God’s Word! Oooh Rah!
Stay the Course Warrior.
BE the Light and Stay Salty!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
