The Story in Review- Chapter Nineteen
The nation that God used to bring devastation to His people and the kingdom of Israel is the exact same means that God uses to bring restoration of both the temple and the state of Israel. It is easy to become discouraged, especially after you’ve been taking it in the shorts in recent days. Israel had just taken it in the shorts big time. Kingdom split, Temple toppled, people dislocated and now on the cusp of a restorative moment, the exile is ended and the construction project is about to take off when locals form opposition. As the people lay down their tools God raises up a pair of prophets to speak His Word and encourage the people to resume their work and remain steadfast to their calling.
