2 Kings 25:12 (KJV) The Last King in Judah

2 Kings 25:12 (KJV)
But the captain of the guard left of the poor of the land to be vinedressers and husbandmen.

Here then is the record of the last King in Judah.  After this will be an appointed governor. Later, when we get to the time of Christ, we will find the half Jew Herod on the throne, put there by Rome. Zedekiah is captured, along with every other person of influence. Only the poor of the land are left.

I am reminded that Jesus said, “the meek shall inherit the earth.” It will not be the movers and shakers that receive the kingdom of Christ. The kings and the rich and all those who trust in and follow them will be destroyed at the battle of Armageddon. It will be the poor, the meek; those who refuse to accept the mark of the beast (and who suffer because of it) that remain to enter into Christ’s reign.

It is similar today. Those who get saved, those who enter into Christ’s promise are those who are humble enough to release the rule of their own lives.

  • Rather than being world influencers they are happy to come under the influence of Christ.
  • Rather than making a name for themselves they are content to lift up the name of Christ.
  • Rather than forging a way in the wilderness they find pleasure walking in the path Christ forged.
