Discussion for 1 Kings 15

  • Irene123
    V. 23 - Asa's feet being 'diseased' refers to the fact that Asa did not walk in the paths of God's righteousness in his old age. It's the same with Josiah, he made a league with - somebody? and the ships they built - God destroyed before they could even use them.

    In verse 13 Asa even removed his grandma from her position because she made an obscene idol.
  • As to Asa not removing the high places out of Israel, could that referring the fact that he did have control over the ten tribes.he removed all the idols here he had the authority?
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    "A PERFECT HEART TOWARDS GOD" - Both David and Asa both were described as having a "PERFECT HEART TOWARDS GOD", As we can see, they both had their moments of indiscrection. However, GOD, being greater than our hearts, knows the intentions also. There is none righteous, for all have sinned. Don't allow Satan, to use your shortages towards righteousness, as a means to give up. Keep fighting the Good Fight. For there was only ONE PERFECT, AND his name IS, AND WAS "JESUS".
