2 Chronicles 35:21-23 (NKJV) But he sent messengers to him, saying, “What have I to do with you, king of Judah? I have not come against you this day, but against the house with which I have war; for God commanded me to make haste. Refrain from meddling with God, who is with me, lest He destroy you.”
Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself so that he might fight with him, and did not heed the words of Necho from the mouth of God. So he came to fight in the Valley of Megiddo.
And the archers shot King Josiah; and the king said to his servants, “Take me away, for I am severely wounded.”
Necho menyampaikan pesan Tuhan, Tapi Yosia tidak mendengarkannya, dengan jelas Tuhan berpesan untuk ikut campur dalam perang di negri orang lain.
Para pembaca terkasih, Raja Yosia pun wafat, menjadi pelajaran berharga bagi kita semua, tetaplah rendah hati dengarkan pesan Tuhan, jangan merasa hebat dan memutuskan perkara tanpa meminta bimbingan Tuhan.
