TIME TO DIE

2 KINGS 20: 1-11

One of my all time favorite movies is "Blade Runner" In this movie there is an android. He crosses hundreds of thousands miles of space from the Orion belt to come back to earth to find his creator and find out why it is TIME TO DIE? It seems that his creator had place a life clock in the bodies of the android that would shut them down at a particular time. His life clock was about to shut him down so it would be the death of him.

The final scene of the movie had him setting on the ledge of a tall building in the rain and his last statement was "TIME TO DIE"

In some real application of our lives – our creator has placed at life clock in us. Each and every person born on planet earth has "A TIME TO DIE" It is appointed to man once to die and after that the judgment. (I am speaking about physical death). Thank God that most of us don’t know the day or the hour but it is written on God’s calendar.

In today’s text, one of my favorite characters in the Bible come to the same situation of life. It was his time to die. He knew that it was his time because God sent word to him by the prophet and told him to put his house in order for he was going to die.

THIS GREAT MIRICLE:

A. This would probably be considered the greatest miracle that was ever recorded. It would rival the day that Joshua had God stop the universe for almost a 24 hour period.

In Joshua’s day, God stopped the entire universe for almost the space of 24 hours.

However, on this day God put the universe in Reverse and back it up.

Now don’t tell me that this is impossible. The God that set this universe spinning can stop it if he chooses and he can back it up if he chooses.

B. We should also note that Hezekiah was the best kings Israel ever had next to David. His life is recorded 3 times in the Word of God. {Isa - 2 Kings - 2 Chron.} Of the 39 kings that Israel had he came in second only after David.

WHAT MADE HIM A GREAT KINGS IN THE EYES OF GOD?

2 Ki 18:1-7 Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.

{2 } Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. {3 } And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.

{4 } He removed the high places, and brake the images, {5 } He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.

{6 } For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.

{7 } And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

1. He did that which was right in the sight of the Lord v-3

2. He tore down before He started building up. v-4

3. He Trusted in the Lord - He departed not from following Him - He kept His commandments -
