Isaiah 7:10-12 Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz, "Ask the LORD your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights." But Ahaz said, "I will not ask; I will not put the LORD to the test."

Unlike David his father, he did not do what was right in the eyes of the LORD.

28:2 He walked in the ways of the kings of Israel and also made cast idols for worshipping the Baals. 28:3 He burned sacrifices in the Valley of Ben Hinnom and sacrificed his sons in the fire, following the detestable ways of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.

28:4 He offered sacrifices & burned incense at the high places, on the hilltops & under every spreading tree.

28:5 The Arameans defeated him and took many of his people as prisoners

16:5 Then Rezin king of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel marched up to fight against Jerusalem and besieged Ahaz,

28:16 At that time King Ahaz sent to the king of Assyria for help.

28:17 The Edomites had again come and attacked Judah and carried away prisoners, 28:18 while the Philistines had raided towns in the foothills and in the Negev of Judah.

16:7 Ahaz sent messengers to say to Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria, "I am your servant and vassal. Come up and save me out of the hand of the king of Aram and of the king of Israel, who are attacking me."

28:19 The LORD had humbled Judah because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had promoted wickedness in Judah and had been most unfaithful to the LORD.

28:20 Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria came to him, but he gave him trouble instead of help.

28:21 Ahaz took some of the things from the temple of the LORD .... and presented them to the king of Assyria, but that did not help him.

28:22 In his time of trouble King Ahaz became even more unfaithful to the LORD. 28:23 He offered sacrifices to the gods of Damascus, who had defeated him;

28:24 Ahaz gathered together the furnishings from the temple of God and took them away. He shut the doors of the LORD's temple and set up altars at every street corner in Jerusalem. 28:25 In every town in Judah he built high places to burn sacrifices to other gods and provoked the LORD, the God of his fathers, to anger.
Hope for even the wicked? God comes and calls for repentance. God renews his promise. God through Isaiah gives a sign. But Ahaz will not trust in God, or even listen to the Word of God. A child is born, God with us, threat of judgment and promise of salvation. A child shall take the place of this wicked ruler, and he shall do good. And so it came to pass that Ahaz died, and Hezekiah his son ruled in his place.

29:2 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father David had done.

29:3 In the first month of the first year of his reign, he opened the doors of the temple of the LORD and repaired them. Remove all defilement from the sanctuary.

29:10 Now I intend to make a covenant with the LORD, the God of Israel, so that his fierce anger will turn away from us.

30:6 At the king's command, couriers went throughout Israel and Judah with letters from the king and from his officials, which read: "People of Israel, return to the LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that he may return to you who are left, who have escaped from the hand of the kings of Assyria. 30:7 Do not be like your fathers and brothers, who were unfaithful to the LORD, the God of their fathers, so that he made them an object of horror, as you see. 30:8 Do not be stiff-necked, as your fathers were; submit to the LORD. Come to the sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever. Serve the LORD your God, so that his fierce anger will turn away from you

31:20 This is what Hezekiah did throughout Judah, doing what was good and right and faithful before the LORD his God. 31:21 In everything that he undertook in the service of God's temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.
This also God would do for us. For while God does visit the iniquity of the fathers on the children, he also shows grace and every mercy to the thousands of those who love him and keep his commandments. Donít wait till things are bad to turn to God, but everyday seek his will and do it and he will truly bless all your days. Donít be an Ahaz, serve the Lord with gladness. For a virgin did concieve and bear a son, and his name was called Immanuel. Since God is with us, may we always remain with God, for Jesus sake.
