    The Days of Hezekiah


    Hezekiah was the only person in the Bible who knew the year of his death, after being granted an added fifteen years to live!

    He was only 39 years old when the Prophet Isaiah came to him saying: 'You’re going to die'!
    (Maybe he already knew about this, because it proved to be a boil, and a plaster of figs was used in the healing.)

    Hezekiah had been a great and Godly king, so he prayed, and Isaiah returned to tell him the Lord had heard his prayer and would give him 15 more years.. So, when he was 54, his time was up and his 12 yr. old son, Manasseh began to rule.

    The story is told in three books: in Isaiah chapters 36-39, and in 2Kings18-20 and 2Chron29-32. Plus a mention in Prov25:1.

    'And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day? And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forth ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees'. 2Kings20

    Presumably, Hezekiah went outside and watched the shadow of the sundial backup, thereby assuring him of the Word of God and Isaiah, but his little baby boy Manasseh wasn’t born for another 3 years. Without the miracle of the added years, this link in David’s Dynasty would have been broken.

    Today we don’t need Isaiah to tell us we’re going to die -- we know that. Things seem to be coming to a boil, as we look at the shadow of the changing times and see the wickedness all around.

    We’ve nearly forgotten the hysteria of Y2K, and the relief in some quarters when it was ‘all over’. Or have we been in a countdown all along? Are we in the Hezekiah Days, and nearing The Lord's Third Day? Hosea4:6, 6:2

    Lu:21:29: And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
    When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

    Fifteen Psalms (120-134)
    are headed "Song of Degrees". That's 10% of them, so it numerically correlates
    with the 15 extra years of life given to King Hezekiah who saw the shadow of the sun dial return 10 degrees. He saw "the shadow of the changing time".

    Aztec calender


    Now the latest news about the Aztec calender showing the continuation of Life after 2012, perhaps the fifteen years of King Hezekiah might be considered again?
    Strictly for those who believe the Bible is the Book of the Holy Ghostwriter, who had a good reason for giving Hezekiah that 'miracle'.

    Have you looked at the shadow of the changing time lately? Once upon a time, it told King Hezekiah he had 15 yrs. to live!

    King Hezekiah


    His story is recorded in 2Chronicles, 2Kings, and 4 chapters of Isaiah (36-39). The only man in the Bible who knew the year of his death, because he was given an added fifteen years.

    He followed the Lord with all his heart, and was 39 yrs. of age when Isaiah told him he was going to die. His son, Manasseh would not have been born w/o that 15 yr. extension, so in that sense his son was a miraculous birth. The added 15 yrs. meant Hezekiah would die aged 54. (A reminder: 27 books in the NT.)

    The shadow of the sun dial moving backward was the sign given him that his 15 yrs. were true. Kinda like when we compare the OT with the NT, using 'hindsight', and comparing them analogously.

    "Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble and rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth". Isa37:3 The 'children of Israel' didn't get the new-birth, but rather it came to the 'adults' (Gentiles). Eph4:14.

    Bible scholars tell us that two authors were involved in the writing of Isaiah -- that a second writer took over with chapter 40 because of the drastic change of subject there. Apprarently they didn't note how the 66 books of Isaiah, divided between the first 39 chapters, and the final 27 chapters, are a microcosm of the entire Bible as we have it in this generation, Mt24:34, which sees the signs of the TWINKLING and the return of our Lord. ( IF he's your lord....)

    Question is: Should we also pray for an added 15 yrs? Hezekiah was dying of a boil, but the poultice of figs prescribed by Isaiah evidentally was the catalyst for his healing. 2K20:7

    Song of Degrees

    Ps120-134 all headlined as 'Song of Degrees'.
    Hezekiah was observing the shadow on the sun dial to confirm the 'sign' that he would be given 15 years more, before
    going to the House on 'the third day'.
