1 Chronicles 9 & Ezra 4:24-6:12
There are a number of odd things about these passages, like why does detail about the return from exile get stuck in between 2 genealogies of Saul? But surely the oddest of all is the way that the kings of Israel’s conquerors and foes turn into their allies and helpers. I couldn’t help but think of Proverbs 21:1…
The kings heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
Little wonder then that Paul wrote in Romans 8…
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
No-one stands for long in opposition against the God of heaven and earth.
