Discussion for 1 Kings 1

  • Tayo Adeyemo
    This passage teaches some lessons:
    1. He that exalts himself shall be abased-v.5. Adonijah exalted himself forgetting that legitimacy comes only through appointment by the appropriate authority-David.
    2. David failed as a parent in the upbringing of Adonijah. He never corrected/rebuked him over any matter at all-v.6.
    3. Decisiveness. David made sure Solomon was anointed king that same date.

    Lesson learnt: When it is God that enthrone you and not men the earth will rent with the sound, your voice will be heard and your authority will be felt by all men. Wait for God to enthrone you.

    Gbenga, I think not. Romans 14:5 says, Let Everyman be fully persuaded in his own mind. Nathan had a pure heart therefore Adonijah and Joab knew that so he was not invited to the illegal crowning of Adonijah. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ amen!
  • Kenielhuntley
    The Lord had long ordained Solomon to be king, over Israel and Judah. The lesson learnt is: on your journey to becoming your purpose, the devil will attempt to hinder your success, by putting his own people in your way, attempting to rob you of your right as a child of God, however, you must contact the correct authority,God, and he'll clarify the situation for you.
  • TATA M. JALEIBAH-NEAL for verse 34
    Inspiring anthem that was sang to anoint Solomon King.
