    Hi Richard.

    You are welcome. I hope all is well.

    I have been following on with your through the bible and it has been a blessing and very important.

    I'm sure others think so as well. You have to know something about the Old Testament to understand the New Testament.

    You are giving us an indebt study we definitely need.

    Please continue the great work and may the Lord bless you in all your efforts.

    These are very serious matters. The first section v. 1-18 show Jeroboam's wife entreated for her husband's sake about their son. The only conciliation here was that "some good" was found in the son and he would be mourned and buried. He was a child; so this shows some age of accountability aspect in God judging sins; and that grace appears evident here for salvation much as it was for David's baby from Bathsheeba who David stated that he would see again in previous passages.

    The rest of the appalling future of his descendants were indicated in the following verses where it summarizes that they are mentioned in Chronicles.

    The rest of the chapter shows about Rehoboam show a similar troubled future; and that there was a war between him and Jeraboam "all their days" (v. 30). Once again; we see the destructive effects of worshipping false God's which began with Solomon and how it not only messed up his future; but that of future generations. Solomon; it appears through Ecclesiastes finally learned the bitter lessons of folly; and having too much wealth and other vices. Fear God and keep His commandments ended that book; unfortunately Jaroboam didn't follow God faithfully during any of his time when ruling and neither did Rehoboam either. Only supernatural ears can truly HEAR His voice; and the god of this world blinds all who disregard the warnings and think that they know better.

    The important point to me after reading this chapter comes from the MH commentary:

    "Those who by sin disqualify themselves for comfort, yet expect that their ministers, because they are good men, should speak peace and comfort to them, greatly wrong themselves and their ministers. "

    Oh how often have I, and many I have seen, pray for good tidings or specific wishes, when I should have been praying for more wisdom too see my sins in a clearer light!

    2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

    John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink

    Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    Carolyn: 1 Kings 14 refers to Israel's first king, Jeroboam, after Israel was divided into two kingdoms: Judah & Israel. Now Jeroboam was a wicked king (reigned for 22 years), as were most of the kings of Israel (unlike the kings of Judah, who were generally God-fearing). One day Jeroboam's son, Abijah fell sick and Jeroboam's wife was sent by the king to visit Ahijah a prophet to learn the fate of their son. But rather than dealing with the son, the prophet said to tell the king some even sadder news. He recounted the evils of the king (vv 7-16). So part of that prophecy was the fate of Israel because of the king's wickedness: it would be distressed, rooted up from the land & scattered beyond the Jordan River, because they have angered the LORD with their idol worship as well. And we know, that eventually Israel was sent into captivity to Assyria, after another series of bad kings. There's no deeper meaning in that verse, except to remind his people to love & serve the LORD faithfully.

    The antidote of evil not to befall us as individuals and nations is to follow God as revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ verses 7-10 .

    It was clearly stated that the baby was good, but obviously the seed from there or after him was or would be corrupt, so the bloodline or that branch was ended there. God in His merciful wisdom showe Jeroboam love.

    RALPH M. WATERS I believe all babies and Children are innocent, Jesus says to come to him as children. That tells me that Jesus wants us all to be as innocent as a child they don't know evil they are very forgiving, loving, humble, and honest. I believe an aborted, or abused child's souls go to heaven before they are abused or aborted. And We all have to answer to God in the end.
  • Irene123 on 1 Kings 14
    God does not 'take' anyone. He gave the human race FREE WILL - to chose Him or satan. Abortion is a free will choice of the mother, not God; the soul of the child goes to God - forever. We all have a time to die; only God knows when. That is why we must repent, be baptized in the NAME OF JESUS, and receive the Holy Ghost while it is yet 'day'; while GRACE reigns.
  • John on 1 Kings 14:24
    It was true when 1 Kings was written and it is true today and will be true forever It is God s word
  • RALPH M. WATERS on 1 Kings 14
    THE ONE THINK THAT STRIKES ME IN THIS CHAPTER, IS VERSES 12 & 13. A FEW MONTHS BACK I SPOKE ON "ABORTION", SOME ASKED WHY WOULD GOD TAKE A CHILD, WHO DID NO GOOD OR EVIL. I EXPLAINED TO THEM HOW GOD KNOWS US FROM THE VERY WOMB, WHETHER WE WILL BE GOOD OR EVIL, WHETHER WE WILL BE RAISED IN THE LATTER DAYS TO GLORIFICATION OR DAMNATION. ACTUALLY, LIVING, IS JUST A PROCESS, GOD ALERADY, KNOWS WHO BELONG TO HIM.
