2 Chronicles 36

Study 21 – 2 Chronicles 36

  1. “The land enjoyed its Sabbath rests; all the time of its desolation it rested . . .” – 2 Chronicles 36:21. And, the fact that at the close of this chapter Cyrus, king of Persia, promises that the Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem with his blessing.

  2. Over and over in this chapter the phrase, “he did evil in the eyes of the Lord” is repeated for one king after another. The fact of the matter is that it did not matter what the people thought of their king. The only opinion poll that mattered was the one that polled only one respondent – the Lord!

  3. Zedekiah refused to listen to the prophet Jeremiah.

  4. No matter how evil we are the Lord is always looking for ways to redeem us. He is always sending His messengers to point the way toward righteousness.
