TEARING IT UP – II CHRONICLES 31 (1-21-2018)

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUCCESS AND FAILURE?

II CHRONICLES 31 TELLS THE STORY OF REVIVAL UNDER HEZEKIAH.

2 ACTIONS WE TAKE WHEN WE GIVE GOD OUR HEARTS

31:1 – TEAR DOWN IDOLS.

THIS IS A POWERFUL VERSE.

IT SPEAKS OF COMPLETE DESTRUCTION.

THIS IS A THOROUGH VERSE.

4 TIMES IT USES THE WORD “ALL”.

GIDEON’S FIRST ACT SHOWED THIS.  (Judges 6:25-32)

“TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!”

31:6-12- PILE UP HEAPS.

GOD HAS GIVEN US MORE THAN WE OFTEN REALIZE.

WE HAVE MORE TO GIVE THAN WE SOMETIMES REALIZE.

EARLIER IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IT WAS THIS WAY.  (Exodus 36:5-7)

WHAT CAN YOU PUT ON THE PILE?

THE LAST VERSES OF THE CHAPTER SHOW THE RESULTS.
