When a King and a Prophet...by Steve Long

Posted on January 25, 2021 at 1:05 PM

When a King and a Prophet Agreed Together in Prayer, part two


A few years after Israel, the northern kingdom, was conquered, the Assyrian army came across the border into Judah and captured some of her fortified cities. Their next step was to conquer the capitol, Jerusalem (Isaiah 36:1-3). Hezekiah found out that King Sennacherib was sending his representative with a large army to confront him and the people of Jerusalem. So he encouraged the people to be strong and courageous, “for there are more of us than with him. With him is an arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God, to help us and fight our battles” (II Chronicles 32:7-8, The Message Bible).


When Sennacherib’s messenger delivered his written orders, the Jews realized that it was not only a demand for immediate surrender, but it was a message full of insults and contempt for King Hezekiah and for their God (II Chronicles 32:13-17). “Sennacherib continued to send letters insulting the God of Israel: the gods of the nations were powerless to help their people; the god of Hezekiah is no better, probably worse.” Then Sennacherib’s messengers “shouted their propaganda in Hebrew, trying to scare them into demoralized submission. They contemptuously lumped the God of Jerusalem in with the handmade gods of other peoples (II Chronicles 32:17, 19, The Message Bible).


Many of the enemies of our nation teach that God doesn’t exist. That in itself is an insult to God.


Hezekiah took Sennacherib’s threatening, insulting letter and spread it out before the Lord. Isaiah prophesied against Sennacherib and then joined Hezekiah in prayer. The Scripture then report: “Now because of this King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, prayed and cried out to heaven. God answered by sending angel who wiped out everyone in the Assyrian camp, both warriors and officers. Sennacherib was forced to return home in disgrace . . . When he went into the temple of his god, his own sons killed him (II Chronicles 32:20, NKJV, 21, The Message Bible).


God saved Jerusalem and its inhabitants and I believe He will save our nation also. Hezekiah and Isaiah agreed in prayer on earth concerning a matter of utmost importance and it was done for them by our Father in heaven. Jesus promised us, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19).


I thank God for not just one or two, but for the many thousands of Christians across the world who are joining us in prayer, and for the many thousands in our nation, who are praying for deliverance from evil and for the light of the truth to shine brightly and cast out the darkness and evil threats and deception which seek to take away the freedoms we have in this nation. Through Jesus Christ, we have the victory!

Both everyday and academic discussions of obscenity bear explored the question of sexually unrestrained texts as pedagogy. While sundry commentators and scholars have acknowledged the instructional qualities of dirt, there is no general consensus as to what porn teaches its consumers and how it works as an educator. Pornography is increasingly itself the disposed to of educational texts, with ‘porn literacy’ being debated as a implied addition to the minor assert school curriculum in the Synergistic Domain and Australia. This article presents an overview of the entrants of ‘porn as pedagogy’ and pedagogy approximately porn. It is ordinary in scope, relying from on late-model research and media reportage from Australasia, North America and the Unanimous Kingdom. These Anglophone countries keep outstanding similarities in esteem to the ways smut is framed as a pure and/or federal issue within community contemplation (although there are also notable differences). To this why and wherefore, the overview that follows does not seek to be globally representative, but represents a prodromic foray into a complex and multiform field.

The model circumstance I truism Gail Dines stand up for, at a talk in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her statement of the problems caused by dirt, and provoked laughter with her intelligent observations roughly pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the conclusion – multifarious of whom had on no account viewed pornography as a muddle first – queued up afterwards to pledge their support. The scene highlighted Dines's iffy charisma and the factually that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and captivating of mr roles: the world's leading anti-pornography campaigner.
