By Don Ruhl

The mighty Assyrians thought that all their past victories guaranteed that they would capture Jerusalem with hardly a fight, but the Lord humbled them quickly,

Then the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went away, returned home, and remained at Nineveh. Now it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Then Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place (Isaiah 37.36–38). 

Did you see the number that one angel of the Lord killed of the Assyrians? He wiped 185,000 in one night! You do not threaten God’s people when they have not sinned.


  • Do you believe that God is with Christians like He was with the children of Israel?
  • Are you one of His children?
  • If not, do you know how to become one?
