DESPERATION filled his mind. The King was in so much pain; his body was at the point of death. The infection had spread from the Boil and throughout his whole body; it was excruciating!
It is suggested that he had the deadly Bubonic plague. The epidemic was raging at that time through the Syrian army getting ready to attack Jerusalem. Thus the mention of the boil.
Maybe Septicemia had set into his body? (Blood poisoning caused by Bacteria)
He could only lay on his bed and moan. God sent the Prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, to deliver a message from the Lord to him. He was expecting to be healed by the prophet because that’s what prophets accomplish.
He received some terrible news. The prophet said, “Hezekiah, set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.” Isaiah turned on his heel and left the room without uttering another word.
Poor Hezekiah’s heart broke, and he turned his face to the wall and prayed unto the Lord. He sobbed his prayer unto Jehovah. (maybe he didn’t want others to see him so vulnerable.)
He begged the Lord, bargaining his excellent behavior as a reason to prolong his life. He wept unceasingly.
The Lord “saw his tears and heard his moaning,” so He interrupted the Prophet, who was by this time in the middle Court, and said, “Turn again and tell Hezekiah, l have heard your prayer and seen your tears look! I will heal you. I Will add to your life fifteen years,” which happened.
He continued his work on the Word of God and the responsibility of running the Kingdom.
Dear friend, Jesus also sees your tears and hears your cry. He is the Sympathizing Saviour. He loves and cares for you. Yes! Jesus desires to heal you because He dearly loves you. He took all your infirmities on His body on the Cross of Calvary so that by the wounds that wounded Him, you are healed.
What was the natural remedy they used? Read 2 Kings 20:5-11
They applied a pulp of figs on the raging boil. How fabulous that figs were such medicinal plants.
Let me ask you, are you also in pain and suffering, and do you wonder why you are not experiencing healing? This is good news if you can grasp it then walk in it.
You ‘are’ already healed according to the unfailing Word of God.
1 Peter 2:24 “HE WHO KNEW NO SIN BECAME SIN, THAT WE WOULD BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM. BY HIS STRIPES, WE, ‘WERE’HEALED!”
Right now, the moment you receive Him as your Lord and Saviour, not only are you saved, you are healed and delivered from all evil. Jesus gives life and life abundant (to the full!) He delights to prosper you Spiritually physically, and Finantially,
You, then, became the Righteousness of Christ! As He lives in fullness in you, He is never sick. You do not need to prove to God how good you are, as Hezekiah tried to do to be made whole.
It was the Grace and mercy of God that healed him and added fifteen years to his life.
All you have to do is walk in that healing by faith. Sometimes healing comes suddenly (a supernatural miracle), and at other times, healing comes progressively ( recovery.) Jesus paid the price for your illness and sin at Calvary.
“He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities. It is by the wounds that wounded Him you are healed.” Isa 53:5.
He loves you and will “Never leave or forsake you.”
DON’T STOP BELIEVING! YOUR AILMENT IS IN THE PAST, SO DON’T CALL IT BACK BY COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR SYMPTOMS.Crucify your disease, and count your condition as dead with Christ. You are dead indeed unto sin, and sickness and are now the Master over all powers of the Evil One. Hallelujah.
Walk in that finished work on Calvary. Jesus, the Healer, lives in all His fulness in you. When Jesus was on this Earth, He quoted Isaiah 61:1 and confirmed that this prophesy concerned Himself, Luke 4:17-19, 21. He is the Saviour, the Healer, the Deliverer.
How long it takes to manifest is in His hands, and when it takes longer, we must trust Him without reservation. Declare you are healed, and do not whine about your symptoms. Don’t own it or advertise it. You do not have to live with it. According to the Word of God :
YOU ARE HEALTHY.
Finally and sadly, Hezekiah became presumptuous by allowing the Babylonians to see all the riches of His Kingdom without asking the Lord’s permission.
This foolish show had dire consequences in the future when Babylon would destroy Judah and carry them off as captives to Babylon with everything they owned.
He didn’t seem too anxious as long as he was not alive when the devestation would come to pass.
This seems so selfish, but he was indeed a good King. HE WAS A GREAT FIGURE IN HISTORY!
We all do silly things without thinking. We must seek forgiveness and move on.
You can still be significant in this life! God is so Merciful and Gracious and has the power to raise you up and fully restore you to fulfill your future destiny.
Never give up!
