Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 5 - Evening

"After all this, when Josiah had set the temple in order, Necho king of Egypt went up to fight at Carchemish on the Euphrates, and Josiah marched out to meet him in battle. But Necho sent messengers to him, saying,

'What quarrel is there, king of Judah, between you
and me? It is not you I am attacking at this time,
but the house with which I am at war. God has told
me to hurry; so stop opposing God, who is with me,
or he will destroy you.'

Josiah, however, would not turn away from him, but disguised himself to engage him in battle. He would not listen to what Necho had said at God’s command but went to fight him on the plain of Megiddo.

Archers shot King Josiah, and he told his officers,

'Take me away; I am badly wounded.'

So they took him out of his chariot, put him in his other chariot and brought him to Jerusalem, where he died...Jeremiah composed laments for Josiah."

- Second Chronicles 35:21-25

609-604 BC, Josiah Dies and 23 years of Disaster and Judgment Begin (609-586)    
Josiah had been promised death before the coming of the disaster the Lord had vowed to bring on Jerusalem and the Temple. The prophetess Huldah spoke these words to the king's messengers
in 2 Kings 22:20 because Josiah's heart had been humble and he responded by tearing his robes in repentance when he read the Book of the Law, or the Word of God in the book of Deuteronomy.
(2 Kings 22:14-20) Josiah was still trying to save Judah and lead them in the right way when he was fatally wounded on the Plains of Megiddo (Armageddon).

  Christian Quote from Church History

“No other document in the possession of mankind offers so much to the reader – ethical and religious instruction, superb poetry, a social program and legal code, an interpretation of history, and all the joys, sorrows and hopes which well up in men and which Israel’s prophets and leaders expressed with matchless force and passion.”
– Gabriel Sivan






Something to Ponder??

Around 250 BC the Hebrew Scriptures (the Old Testament) were translated into Greek in Alexandria Egypt for the Jews who could no longer read Hebrew. This was one of the first major translations of a
book in history.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Hellen (Gr) – Greeks (Eng) – in the Greek language the word hellen referred to the descendants of the Grecian King Hellas (or, Hellen with two “L’s not the one “L” Helen of Troy) who was the
son of Deucalion and Pyrrha who survived the flood sent by Zeus to wipe out mankind by
climbing on a floating chest and riding it to the peak of Mount Parnassos.  
The word hellen was used to distinguish Greeks from barbarians in Romans 1:14.
Eventually, the word hellen referred to any Gentile who spoke Greek which was the
universal language, thus in some writers’ perspective hellen was used to identify all Gentiles: Romans 2:9-10; Galatians 2:3; Galatians 3:28; John 7:35; 1 Corinthians 10:32 and 12:13.

The tomb of Daniel is said to be in Susa. There is quite a colorful history that follows this tradition.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Am I committed to serving God with my whole life for all my days?
I will follow God's Word as I do my part to advance his kingdom on earth.
I will live in righteousness until it is my time to be taken from my assignment here on earth.

  "I would not obey my teachers
    or turn my ear to my instructors.
And I was soon in serious trouble in the assembly of God’s people.”

- Proverbs 5:13-14
