God will use Assyria to bring judgment upon Judah, but restoration is ultimately promised.
- God’s Sovereignty – Assyria’s attack against Judah is not beyond God’s control, but rather Assyria is being used by God to bring judgment on his people. God will judge evil and proud Assyria for their sins too. God reigns over all the world. How does this truth encourage you today in the midst of wars and rumors of wars?
- Messiah’s Coming Reign – Chapter 11 speaks of a Messiah in the line of David who will rise. The Spirit of God will rest upon him. He will reign with justice and peace. The earth will be filled with the knowledge of God. We know that this Messiah has come, and is coming again. Use chapter 12 to praise the Lord for this certain hope.
