On today’s Pilgrim’s Progress, Pastor Ray lays out the story of deliverance of King Hezekiah in the book of Isaiah. God provided an incredible deliverance to them against the devil and his minions and answered the cries of King Hezekiah and his people. That’s the glorious part of this story. There is also a strong warning in the last part of this story against pride and the subsequent backsliding of one of the most righteous kings in Israel or Judah.
We see the backsliding of King Hezekiah and the consequences for his sin, after his life was extended by God. He birthed the most wicked king, and led the children of Israel in a downward spiral. We must beware of the wicked snare of pride to be somebody.
