Rampage for God

Home     

Genesis 22:18 ** “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed MY voice.”                    

The angel of the Lord spoke these words to the father of all nations (Abraham) for obedience to try to sacrifice his son, his only son Isaac as a slaughtered lamb. Because of his willing obedience, the Lord provided a ram. This is symbolic of the Messiah, the only man born of a virgin woman sired by the Holy Spirit and is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29). Only God Himself provided this holy sacrifice of the only worthy man since the rebellion in Eden.  The pure blood of God’s only and worthy son desires to wash away the sin of every person’s soul forever. The blood of animals only looked forward to this great salvation plan. The name ‘Jesus’, Hebrew, Y’shua translates as ‘salvation’ and is mentioned more than 100 times in the Tanakh (Old Testament).  However, as our Creator has fulfilled His promise of blessing all nations, little time remains before the new beginning. 

  The new beginning means the promised Biblical curse of death and destruction looms ever nearer for most of mankind. The promised Biblical curse can only be delayed and the blessing renewed with leadership and true worship such as the boy King Josiah, the last great King of Judah. We read in 2 Kings 22:19-20, “Because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they would become a desolation and a curse, and you tore your clothes and wept before ME. I also have heard you, “says the Lord.  “Surely, therefore, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, and your eyes shall not see all the calamity which I will bring on this place”.

The boy King Josiah received his crown at only 8 years old and reigned for 31 years in Jerusalem. The child’s wicked father Amon and his Satanic Grandfather Manasseh turned away from keeping the laws of our Creator. America and most nations now are repeating the falling away from God and have come under the same curse as Judah/Israel. At the death of King Solomon, the states of Israel divided and immediately began to fall away from keeping the Lord’s Commandment. Immorality and pagan worship spread like the morning fog and remained progressively worse for there was no bright light of God to burn it away.  The bright light of God arrived with the coronation of the boy king Josiah, who came from a terribly un- moral heredity and surrounded by an environmental and wicked background. Yet, he turned his life to worship our Creator God with tremendous worthy fervor and the Spirit of God blessed him with loving kindness and wisdom.

In the eighteenth year of King Josiah’s reign, the first major pleasing godly action was to repair and restore dignity to Solomon’s Temple.  This godly outstanding action brought a holy reward because the dusty, abandoned book of the law was found and read to the King. The Prophetess Huldah brought news that Josiah had a little more time to restore the law of God to Judah (5 years) before the promise of desolation by the Pagan Babylonians. Josiah began by taking a stand to follow the Lord and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes. The people heeded the command of this Child of God for God knew a remnant of His converted Jews (from paganism) was needed to keep His commandments for the 70 years of captivity.

2 Kings 23:3 ** Then the King stood by a pillar (in the temple) and made a covenant before the Lord, to follow the Lord and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant (agreement) that were written in this book. And all the people took a stand for the covenant. ** The immediate stand of King Josiah was a ‘rampage for God’.  Verse 5-11 tells us he removed all the idolatrous priests ordained by previous kings who worshiped pagan gods as the sun, the moon, the stars and Baal. He brought out of the house of the Lord, the wooden image of the Canaanite goddess Asherah and burned it. He removed the sodomite (homosexual prostitutes) ritual booths in the house of the Lord. He further broke down the shrines at the gates of Jerusalem (niches containing religious images) and removed the horses at the temple entrance former kings of Judah dedicated to the sun and he burned their chariots which were also dedicated to the sun.

This ‘Rampage for God’ involves much more and is even further described in 2 Chronicles chapter 34 and 35. However, in both 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles, in the eighteenth year of the youthful King’s reign, Josiah re-instituted the Lord’s Passover as God said in Exodus 12:14, saying, “So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance”.  **It is no coincidence that verse 14 is the 14th day of Nisan, the first month of the Hebrew calendar. This is the day our Lord, the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus shed his blood as the Passover Lamb of God to wash away our sins forever for those that keep His commandments. When Christ took His last breath, a leader of the Roman soldiers said, “Surely this is the son of God”(Mark 15:39). This fulfillment marked the very beginning of God’s Church as in the prophesy in Psalm 22:27 which says, “All the families of the nations shall worship (bow down) before YOU.”

       Without a great leader going on a ‘Rampage for God’ such as the Boy King Josiah to turn America back to obeying the voice of the Master Creator, all hope is lost for most people. However, there is hope for those that believe and are willing to keeping the commandments in truth and in spirit!  Believe now! Give your wicked heart to our loving creator and abide with His rules of everlasting life! May our God have mercy on many souls that think they have been purified by the Holy blood of Christ Jesus! Humble yourself before God as the boy King Josiah!
