And Beijing King of Israel came up against Judah and built Ramo that he might let none go out or come in to EISA King of Judah. So she comes to the throne in the Northern kingdom of Israel and somehow Bay HSA blocks the pathway, the Kings highway of people coming in to Jerusalem and people coming in to Judah, they can now no longer go that trade route and go through to Judah. Bayshore has closed off that entrance. Verse 18 then EISA took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the house of the Lord and the treasuries of the King’s house and deliver them into the hand of his servants.
And King EISA sent them to Ben. Hey dad, the son of Tavern, rim tab, rim on the King, or excuse me, the son of hezie on King of Syria who dwelled in Damascus saying, let there be a treaty between you and me. And there was between as there was between my father and your father. See, I have sent you a present of silver and gold. Come and break your treaty with basic King of Israel so that he will withdraw from me. So Ben, Hey dad,
King heated King EISA and sent the captains of his army against the, against the captains of Israel. He attacked I, John, Dan, Abel, Beth maker and general, and all the land of NAFTA lie. Now, it happened when Beja heard it, that he stopped building Ramer and remained in Tirzah. Then King EISA made a proclamation throughout all Judah. None was exempted, and they took away the stones and timber of Ramer, which patient had used for building with and with them. King EISA built Gava of Benjamin and Misbah,
the rest of the acts of AYSO, all his mind and all that he did, and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of Chronicles of the Kings of Judah. But in the time of his old age, he was diseased in his feet. So EISA rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David, his father. Then Jehoshaphat, his son reigned in his place. Okay, so EISA in his valiance against the armies of the Ethiopians. This army of a million people relies upon the Lord.
But we’ll find out if we go and read the record in Chronicles, that when it came to the problems of the Northern kingdom of Israel, when it came to the problems of Bayshore in the Northern kingdom, EISA didn’t rely on the Lord. Yeah. Instead, he takes the treasuries of the house of the Lord and the things that he had dedicated to the Lord and things his father had dedicated to the Lord, and he sends them to Syria. God will rebuke him for not trusting in the Lord. Now,
he doesn’t depart from the Lord. He’s not taken from the throne. But in this area, in the record and Chronicles, God says, you should have trusted me. You shouldn’t have gone to Syria for your salvation. You should have come to me. And there’s a lesson there for us. There’s a lesson about when we rely on the Lord, when we rely on God, and instead of looking and seeing with our eyes and seeing the problems and seeing the solution being physical, we need to learn that the solution should be spiritual,
that the solution is first to trust God. When we’re looking at our lives and we’re looking at the situations we endure and the things that are coming before us, we need to remember the solution begins every time with the Lord and therefore our faithfulness needs to be a part of that and our assurance and our hope and our peace of mind needs to be a part of that as well. Okay, so that was the reign of EISA. Verse 25 the first Kings 15 now day NEDA, the son of Jeroboam,
became King over Israel in the second year of EISA, King of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years. Remember what God told Jeroboam? God told Jeroboam when Jeroboam son was sick and when Jeroboam sent his wife to come to find out what would happen to his son and to try and get his son to be healed.
God told Jeroboam, this child of yours, this child of yours will go to his grave, he will die and he will go to his grave in peace.
But no other child of yours will go to his grave in peace. The ones that die outside the city will be eaten by the birds.
The ones that Dianne inside the city will be eaten by the dogs. None of Jeroboam children would go to their grave.
Peace. Save that one who died as a child. So Nadab comes to the throne for 20 years of bones.
Bones Nate have comes to the throne in the second year of EISA and he rains for two years. Verse 26 says he did evil in the sight of the Lord and walked in the way of his father and in his sins by which he made Israel sin.
Then Beijing, the son of a hijab of the house of his, a car conspired him and Bayshore killed him at GitHub,
which belonged to the Philistines while Nadab and all Israel later siege to give a phone. So, uh,
nailed down and his armies are besieging a city, the city of<inaudible>. And they’re there, and while they’re besieging the city,
while they’re encamped around the city, this one, uh, Bayshore comes and kills the King. He kills the King to assume the throne.
So it, and so it was verse 29 when he became King that he killed all the house of Jeroboam.
He did not leave to Jeroboam. Anyone that breathed until he had destroyed him according to the word of the Lord,
which he had spoken by a servant, a hijab, the Shiloh night because of the sins of Jeroboam,
which he had sin and by which he had made Israel sin because of his provocation with which he had provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.
This is God’s judgment on Jeroboam and his house. Remember a hijab, the Shilah night, the prophet comes to Jeroboam during the days of Solomon and says,
Jeroboam, God is going to take away 10 of the nations of Israel. He’s going to give them to you.
He’s going to put them in your hand, and if you will be faithful, if you will be faithful to God as David was faithful to the Lord.
Then your name and your throne and your lineage will be as a shirt in Israel, as David’s Jeroboam had a choice.
He had a choice whether or not to be faithful. He had a choice whether or not to be obedient and he chose not to,
and the Turnitin of a lineage that will be continuing a lineage that will be faithful to the Lord, a lineage that will go on generation after generation in Israel.
The alternative to that was Jarrow. Boams house was completely destroyed. Beja comes to the throne and he doesn’t just take out nae dab.
He finds everyone from Jeremy balms house and kills them all. Now the rest of the acts of Nadab and all that he did are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel and there was war between EISA and Beja,
King of Israel all their days. In the third year of EISA King of Judah base you, the son of a Hijah became King over all Israel in Tirzah and rained 24 years.
He did evil in the sight of the Lord and walked in the ways of Jeroboam and in his sin by which he made Israel sin.
Then the word of the Lord came to J Hugh, the son of Hannah, and I against basis saying,
in as much as I lifted you out of the dust and made you ruler over my people Israel, and you have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have made my people Israel sin to provoke me to anger with their sins,
surely I will take away the prosperity or the posterity of Beja and the posterity of his house and I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam,
the son of ni, bat, what are we reading here? We’re reading that God told us<inaudible> that he would give him the throne.
Gone told Neisha that you will receive the throne and you can be faithful to me. But what did they should do instead?
Basic takes the throne and instead of being faithful to the Lord, does exactly what Jeroboam did and follows in the exact same path and steps as Jeroboam.
And so now beiges house is going to be destroyed the same way Jera balms was. Notice Jay who will be told these things,
and verse four we read the same pronouncement against spacious house. The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Beijing and dies in the city and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the fields.
Now the rest of the acts of base show what he did and his mind are they not written in the books of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel.
So Beja rested with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah. Then Isla is on, rained in this place and also the word of the Lord came by the prophet J Hugh,
the son of Hannah nigh against Beja and his house because of all the evil that he did in the sight of the Lord in provoking him to anger with the work of his hand in being like the house of Jeroboam and because he killed them.
Notice one of the punishments of VEISHA will be there resulting from him killing the house of Jeroboam in the 26th year of EISA King of Judah.
Isla, the son of VEISHA becomes King over Israel and rain two years in Tirzah now his servants, Emory commander of half his chariots conspired against him as he was in Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of ours.
So, uh, ILA, the son of VEISHA comes to the throne. ILA is here in this city and in this house and he is drinking himself drunk.
And then during this time, this one Zimride will come in. He is con, he is the commander of half the chariots of the army of uh,
of ILA and he comes in and kills ILA notice. Zimriyah went in verse 10 and struck him and killed him in the 27th year of EISA,
King of Judah and reign in his place. Then it came to pass when he began to reign. As soon as he was seated on his throne that he killed all the household of Beja,
he did not leave him one male, neither of his relatives, nor of his friends. So here<inaudible> the commander of the of half the chariots comes in,
finds Isla in the house, drinking himself drunk and will kill him and immediately moves to take the throne and to kill off every male of the house of Beja.
And he not only kills off every male of the house of Beijing, he kills off every male of the relatives of Maisha.
You’re going to find out that he does this very quickly. This was a quick execution. Notice how we know that,
uh, for all the sins, verse 13 of Batian, the sins of Isla, his son by which they had sin and my,
which they had made Israel sin and provoking the Lord God of Israel to anger with their idols. Now the rest of the acts of Isla and all that he did are they not written in the books of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel.
And the 27th year of EISA King of Judah, Zimmer had rained in Tirzah seven days, not seven years,
not even seven months, not seven weeks, one week, seven days. Zimmer had rained seven days and the people were in camp against GitHub,
which belonged to the Philistines. Now the people who were in camp heard it and heard it said, Zimride has conspired and also killed the King.
So all Israel made Omri the commander of the army King over Israel that day in the camp, Zim Marie will accomplish killing ILA and will accomplish taking the throne.
But what Zemurray didn’t plan on is all of Israel being encamped against<inaudible>. They decide to make someone else King.
And so they make all Murray the commander of the army King instead. Then Omri at verse 17 and Israel with him went up from Gibson and they besieged Tirzah.
And it happened when Zimriyah saw that the city was taken, that he went into the Citadel of the King’s house and burned the King’s house down upon himself with fire and died because of the sins which he had committed in doing evil in the sight of the Lord and walking in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin,
which he had committed to make Israel sin. Now the rest of the acts of Zimride and the trees and he committed,
are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? Then the two people are,
then the people of Israel were divided into two parts. Half of the people followed Timney, the son of guy NEF to make him King and half followed Henri.
But the people who followed Omri prevailed over the people who followed the son of ganache. So Tiffany died and Henri reign and the 31st year of EISA,
King of Judah Omri became King over Israel and reign. 12 years, six years, he reigned in Tizard or Tirzah and he bought the Hill of some area from shimmer,
the two town with four two talents of silver. Then he built on the Hill and called the name of the city,
which he built some area after the name of shimmer owner of the Hill. So Omri will come to the throne.
He was previously the commander, the army, and he will unite by force the nation of the Northern kingdom of Israel.
And eventually after some years he will move the capital city from Tirzah to this new city. He has built some area.
Henri did evil in the eyes of the Lord and did worse than all who were before him. For he walked in all the ways of Jeroboam,
the son of Nebat, and in his sin by which he made Israel sin provoking the Lord God of Israel to eye to anger with their idols.
Now the rest of the acts of Omri, which he did, and the mind that he showed, are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel,
so SA, so Omri reigned with arrested with his fathers and was buried in some area. Then Ahab,
his son reigned in his place. Omri we’ll take the throne after Zimriyah will kill the King ILA, go back to Doris or go back to HERSA,
go into the Citadel of the King’s house, but then all Israel and Henri come against him and as they enter the city,
he burns the palace down on top of himself. He rains for one week, Omri will come to the throne.
He will unite the nation by force. He will move the capital to some area, but he will do more wicked,
more evil than all the Kings who were before him. But don’t worry because his son’s coming to the throne after him.
Yeah. And a Hab will do more evil than even Omri did. Notice what occurs during the reign of Ahab.
In the 38th year of EISA King of Judah, a have the son of Omri became King over Israel and Ahab,
the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria. 22 years. Now, Ahab, the son of Omri,
did evil in the sight of the Lord more than all who were before him. And it came to pass as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam,
the son of Nebat that he took, his wife Jessebelle, the daughter of<inaudible>, King of the<inaudible>,
and he went and served bale and him. Then he set up an altar for bail in the temple of bail,
which he had built in some area and they have made a wooden image. Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the Kings who were before him.
In his days, Heil of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation with uh, Aberam, his firstborn and with his youngest son<inaudible>.
He set up its Gates according to the word of the Lord, which he had spoken through Joshua, the son of nun Ahab comes to the throne and the wickedness of his father was nothing.
And the wickedness of the one who proceeded him was nothing. And the wickedness of Jeroboam before them was nothing by comparison to the wickedness of Ahab and his willingness to bring Jessebelle into his kingdom.
His willingness to marry the daughter of this ETH bale, this worshiper of bale of the King of side one of the<inaudible>.
And there was a time that Seiden was, was a partner and an ally to Solomon. There’s a time when those entire and Sidon were those who knew of the Lord,
but not now. Not now. They’re being rained by, reigned over by someone who is a worshiper of bale and whose daughter worships bale and Aster off and will seek to kill all the profits of the Lord in Israel and they help.
We’ll let her, okay. He will allow her to bring much wickedness into his nation, into an among God’s people,
and he will join her in that evil. It’s a lesson to be learned and a reminder to be had.
You’re the head of a house when you’re the head of a nation, when you’re the head of anything,
the buck stops with you and Hey, have was held accountable for everything that Jesse Bell did that was evil because he didn’t stop it and instead joined in it.
Go through the questions very quickly for chapter 15 and 16 question number one comes from verses three of chapter 15 why did God allow by Jim to rule over Judah even though he was sinful?
The answer is because of the faithfulness of David. Question two yes or no. Were there Wars between Israel and Judah after the kingdom was divided?
Answer is yes. There were Wars continually between the Northern kingdom of Israel and the Southern kingdom of Judah.
Question three did the prophet J Hugh prophesize a good or be bad for Bayshore, King of Israel? He prophesied B bad things.
Why? The question then is why. How did Zimmer’s acts against beiges household fulfill the prophecy of JMU?
The answer is because Batiuk continued the answer to the question of why is because Beja continued in the sins of Jeroboam instead of returning to the Lord and because Beja killed all the house of Jeroboam,
Zimriyah acts against Bayshore fulfilled the prophecy of J Hugh in that all of basis house was killed just as Beijing had done to Jeremy balms.
House question four. What was the sin of Beja and Isla, his son, both Kings of Israel,
so that so provoked God. The answer is there. Idolatry. Question five a have King of Israel married blank,
a worshiper of bale? Of course the answer there is bell. And then question six, why did heils firstborn child dying when he laid the foundation to rebuild Jericho and the youngest die when he set up the Gates?
You go back to Joshua chapter six verse 26 you will remember that God said that the city of Jericho was never to be rebuilt,
and that the one who did rebuild it, his first born would die on the day that they laid the foundations and his youngest child would die on the day that they hung the Gates of the city.
And so here in the wickedness of Ahab’s reign in the wickedness of this nation under the influence of Ahab and Jezebel,
there is one who decides it’s worth it. It’s worth it to lose my firstborn and my last born child to rebuild this city that God said not to build.
And so Heil will rebuild the city of Jericho. And then question seven, how many books are there in the old Testament?
Of course there are 39 thank you for joining us in this study of first Kings chapter 15 and 16 we hope that you’re doing well and staying safe.
We love each and every one of you have a great day.
