    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
