2 Chronicles 16:7-9, 12 (NKJV) And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand.
Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand.
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.
Raja Asa berubah hatinya setelah sekian lama diberkati , ia berpaling mengandalkan orang , ia tidak lagi bergantung pada Tuhan, melainkan kepada kekuatan tentara kerajaan Asing, merasa mempunyai banyak uang, kaya raya, dengan hartanya ia membeli pertolongan tentara kerajaan Syria
mengapa raja Asa, berubah? zona nyaman, dan kemakmuran membuat ia malah jauh dari Tuhan, ia tidak punya karakter yang cukup untuk diberkati berlimpah oleh Tuhan, harta melimpah mengubahkan hatinya.
para pembaca terkasih, raja Asa malah melawan Tuhan , ketika Tuhan menegur melalui nabi, malah ia penjarakan, dan Tuhan mengangkat perlindungan dan pengurapan atas diri raja Asa
2 Chronicles 16:10-13 (NKJV) Then Asa was angry with the seer, and put him in prison, for he was enraged at him because of this. And Asa oppressed some of the people at that time.
Note that the acts of Asa, first and last, are indeed written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
And in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the Lord, but the physicians.
So Asa rested with his fathers; he died in the forty-first year of his reign.
Setelah Tuhan mengangkat perlindungannya raja Asa segera jatuh, hancur hidupnya, kerajaan iblis mendatangkan perang dan sakit penyakit, sungguh menyedihkan kisah raja Asa
