How God Defends Against Evil Takeover

This isn’t the first time an evil regime has tried to take over–

a nation, replace leaders and cut off the food and water supply. The Lord spoke to me a word from another era when they faced a similar and overwhelming attack and how they overcame overwhelming odds.

And we can do the same.

Our freedom is under attack.

And it is not just against our nation. This is a personalized assault against our families, our cities, our states and our nation against our core values and beliefs.

If you feel overwhelmed and without hope, let me encourage you today. Here’s what we can do next.

In the days of King Hezekiah, the city was under threat of siege—just as we are now.

The evil king of Assyria had more money, more troops and a more strategic position. He had a calculated plan for takeover–just as we are watching against us today.

He wrote a letter to Hezekiah to let it be known that he fully intended to take over his kingdom.

But he failed as God intervened and defended against the takeover!

In the natural, the Assyrian king should have easily defeated Hezekiah. But he didn’t because of important steps that Hezekiah took which opened the door for a miracle. Several in fact.

These are the same steps we need to follow and implement as we face those who are intent on taking over our cities, states and nation to overthrow freedom.

  1. Hezekiah took the letter (of their threats)…and went up to the house of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord (2 Kings 19:14).
  2. Then he prayed, “O Lord, the God of Israel, who art enthroned above the cherubim. You are God and You alone, over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth (2 Kings 19:15).

He reminded himself that God was greater than those who threatened their annihilation.

  • He prayed, “And now, O Lord our God, I pray deliver us from his hand that all kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, are God!” (2 Kings 19:19).
  • Then the Lord responded via His prophet Isaiah, “Because you have prayed to Me…I have heard you.”

It reminds us that God hears us when we call! He will not leave us or forsake us in our time of need. The effectual, fervent prayer of righteous men and women avails much!

  • The Lord told Hezekiah regarding the King of Assyria, “By the way that he came, by the same he shall return and he shall not come to this city. For I will defend this city to save it for my own sake…” (2 Kings 19:33-34).  

When we pray, God will deliver our cities, our states and our land, when we approach in the same spirit as Hezekiah in days of old.

We will watch as some cities and states are delivered and some aren’t. It depends on the Remnant and prayer.

The king of Assyria tried to cut off food and water from the city. But after King Hezekiah humbled himself and prayed before the Lord the following happened:

  1. The Lord sent a spirit so that the King of Assyria heard a rumor and returned to his own land where he was killed.
  2. Despite the Assyrian king’s plan to block food and water to force their evil intent, after King Hezekiah prayed, the Lord said, “This shall be the sign for you. You shall eat this year what grows of itself, in the second year what springs from the same and in the third year sow, reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit” (2 Kings 19:29). God provided and undid the damage of the evil that had been planned against them.
  3. For the surviving remnant…shall again take root downward and bear fruit upward. (2 Kings 19:30). The remnant of God’s people who trusted in Him, prayed and walked with Him grew in strength and number.

There is a remnant of God’s people who like Hezekiah enter the house of the Lord, spread out the threats and intercede on behalf of our nation.

As God did then, I believe He will do again as we stand fast and hold fast, for He never changes.

Do we prepare for a crisis? Of course.

It is foolish not to be prepared with extra food, water, etc. whether that is for a natural storm or man-made crisis. We are to be wise as serpents, but harmless as doves. The key is we are not to fear but to pray and know that He will deliver the remnant that remains steadfast with eyes on Him.
