Intro: This passage can offer us encouragement during

our anxiety over the outcomes of war. God shows what

He can and will do...Let us look at the experience of

King Hezekiah as the Assyrians invaded their land.

I. The THREAT (V.1)

A. Senaccherib was invading Judah. His army was

massive, Judah was no match for his army.

B. This army had a history of successful invasions.

II.The TACTICS (V. 2-6)

A. Hezekiah, king of Judah and his associates

began to cut off all water supply so the

Assyrians could not have access to water while

invading their territory, refortified the city

and set guards around it.

B. They also built up military, made shields and

weapons, and got as prepared as humanly possible.

III. The TRUTH (V.7-8)

A. After preparing militarily, Hezekiah brought

all the people together for a motivational

and encouraging rally.

B. Truth: (v.7) "the One with US is greater

than the one with him."

(v.8) "with him is ONLY an arm of flesh

with US is the LORD OUR GOD to

HELP US and FIGHT OUR BATTLES.

IV. The TAUNTING (V. 9-15)

A. Sennacherib, the Assyrian leader tried many

"tricks" to DISCREDIT Hezekiah, and to inflict

FEAR into the people of Judah.

B. He even wrote letters slandering Jehovah God!

(sound familiar??)

V. The TRIUMPH (V. 20-25)

A. King Hezekiah AND the Prophet Isaiah PRAYED

AND CRIED OUT TO GOD (their real source for

victory)

B. GOD sent an ANGEL and DESTROYED ALL the Assyrian

warriors.

C. God SAVED Judah, and GUIDED THEM thereafter.

D. THE ASSYRIAN LEADER (Sennacherib)...returned

IN SHAME to his homeland, and was assasinated

by some of his own children.

CONCLUSION:

1. RIGHT PREVAILS

2. EVIL WILL FAIL

3. WE MUST PREPARE, BUT WE MUST ALSO CALL UPON

GOD TO HELP WHEN THE ODDS ARE SEEMINGLY

OVERWHELMING.

4. GOD WILL HONOR AND HELP THOSE WHO ARE ON

THE CAUSE FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND JUST.

5. HE OFTEN ACTS IN "UNCONVENTIONAL, MIRACULOUS

WAYS."

6. Let us all DAILY pray that God would

Protect and Provide Victory for those

who are standing for truth and justice.

"The One with US is greater than the one with him."

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!! AMEN!!
