Watch who you unearth your hidden treasures to.  The prince of Babylon appeared to be quite sympathetic and interested when King Hezekiah took ill but it was a trap.

As a result, the prince's pretentious concern wins him favor as King Hezekiah lets his defenses down and shows him all the treasures of his house and kingdom.  Big mistake!   About a century later, the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, raided and looted Judah's of all its treasures.  A prophecy of Isaiah that Daniel got to witness the fulfillment during his plight in Judah's captivity to Babylon (Isaiah 38).

King Hezekiah's pride blinded him and caused him to "show off" his kingdom.   In doing so, he placed his entire kingdom in jeopardy because he not only exposed the wealth of his nation but also the power of its defenses and strength to his enemies.

Remember Sampson, who had his eyes plucked out.  In his flirtation with sin, he unveiled the secret of his strength and the enemy came in and cut it right off.   The first thing sin does is cause spiritual blindness.

We are GOD's royal heirs and the enemy knows it. Rebellion and disobedient to GOD will open the door and leave you wide open for your enemy to slap you with a sneak attack. John 10:10 says: The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

Stay vigilant and be careful to walk humbly before your GOD.
