The Unknown #5

Unknown #5 – God turned back time!

10 “It is a simple matter for the shadow to go forward ten steps,” said Hezekiah. “Rather, have it go back ten steps.”

11 Then the prophet Isaiah called on the Lord, and the Lord made the shadow go back the ten steps it had gone down on the stairway of Ahaz. 2 Kings 20:10-11 (NIV)

In different translations, the details of the text and interpretation is varied (steps, sundial, or degrees). Regardless of translation however, if you read the full story of Hezekiah’s ill health (2 Kings 20:1-11) and the resulting sign from the Lord, it is clear that the Lord moved the sun (or turned back time) resulting in the shadow reversing its course.

Moral: The Lord has said He can do anything. The Lord can do anything, and He will!
