2 Chronicles Chapter 10 Discussion



 
  • Richard in Christ on 2 Chronicles 10
    Psalms 1: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

    But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law doth he meditate day and night.

    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

    The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

    Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

    For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

    To all my brothers and sisters in Christ. Draw close to the Lord. Have no fear in this world. Stay vigilant. Amen.

    God Bless you all.

    The Lord Jesus Christ standing on Mount Olive:

    The seventh trumpet sounds:

    ( Revelation 16:15) Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. [Jesus comes as a thief at both sixth & seventh trumpets]

    vs 18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face

    vs 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

    ( Revelation 11:15) And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. ( Revelation 16:17) ( John 19:30)

    ( Ezekiel 37:1-14) Resurrection: ...vs 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. vs 11 ...these bones are the whole house of Israel. vs 14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live,..

    ( Matthew 24:30) And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

    ( Revelation 1:7)

    ( Revelation 19:11-16)

    ( Revelation 19:19-20)

    vs 20 ...Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. ( Zechariah 14:1-4) ....Then shall the LORD go forth...And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives...

    Ezekiel 38 Biblical Perspective

    Ezekiel 38: 1-9

    Part 1 of 4: Gog's sixth trumpet attack on Israel (house):

    vs 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

    vs 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company withbucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

    ( 2 Thessalonians 2:6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

    vs 7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

    ( Revelation 9:15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

    vs 8 After many days....in the latter years thou shalt come...against the mountains of Israel (house), and they shall dwell safely all of them...

    ( Revelation 9:13) And the sixth angel sounded....

    vs 9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

    God is against Gog, yet Gog is finally brought forth in the latter days to do God's will against Israel, Babylon, and eventually every world government. The first "cloud to cover the land" is reported. Israel (house) is being attacked.

    ( Jeremiah 5:15) Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation...

    ( Isaiah 13:5-6) They come from a far country...

    ( Joel 2:3-11) ...the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness...

    ( Isaiah 47) vs 9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood..
  • Simon on 2 Chronicles 10
    Part 1 continued:

    ( Ezekiel 21:12) Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people,...smite therefore upon thy thigh. "smite therefore upon thy thigh" is reference to Jacob wrestling an angel for the birthright he obtained from a hungry Esau, for a bowl of lentil soup. Wrestling the angel permanently injured Jacob's thigh ( Genesis 32:24-25). Seen as our "Jacob's time of trouble"; the great tribulation.

    God made both Gog and Esau "small" and "despised "( Obadiah 1:2) Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised.

    ( Daniel 11:23) And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

    ( Matthew 24:21-22) For then shall be great tribulation....

    ( 2 Thessalonians 2:3) The falling away is the abomination of desolation.

    ( Mark 13:14) ( Matthew 24:15)

    ( 2 Peter 3:10) (Mathew 3:11)

    ( Amos 5:18) ( Amos 5:20)

    ( Daniel 11:31)

    ( Revelation 17:16-17)

    ( Daniel 9:27)

    ( Jeremiah 51:53)

    ( Revelation 18) vs 20 ...for in one hour is she made desolate.

    ( Revelation 18:9-10) ...for in one hour is thy judgment come. ( Ezekiel 18:26)

    ( Daniel 12:6-7)

    Israel (house) is notably attacked [from the south to the north]:

    ( Ezekiel 21:2-4) And say to the land of Israel (northern kingdom),...therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh [from the south to the north].

    ( Ezekiel 20:46-47) ....Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree:...and all faces [from the south to the north] shall be burned therein.

    ( Isaiah 21:1) ....As whirlwinds in [the south pass through]; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land (Gog's land)

    ( Job 37:9)

    ( Isaiah 24) "Day of the Lord" aftermath.

    ( Revelation 9:18) By these three was the third part of men killed...

    Part 2

    Ezekiel 38:10-13

    Gog did all that God asked of him by destroying Israel, Babylon, so what turned God against Gog? "At the same time" he's doing God's will, Gog thinks an "evil thought".

    10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

    11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

    12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

    13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

    vs 13 connection:

    ( Daniel 7:24) And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them (Gog); and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings, [Sheba, and Dedan, and Tarshish].

    ( Daniel 11:42) He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. [Saudi Arabia, Egypt & Turkey?]

    Gog attacks 3 of 10 nations gathered unto him, nations that surround Israel. He subdues and spoils them by ground warfare (like Judah), not by annihilating them to dust like the house of Israel (Isaiah:13). antichrist seeks a Greater Israel Project of his own.

    from vs 10: "that at the same time....."

    Ezekiel 38:14-17

    The sixth trumpet Invasion of Judah (house):

    vs 14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

    vs 15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

    ( Jeremiah 15:1-3) ( 1 Thessalonians 5:2)

    ( Jeremiah 13:19) The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open them: Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.

    ( Deuteronomy 28:48-50) vs 49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, A nation of fierce countenance, ( Daniel 8:23-25)

    vs 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel (Judah), as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

    This is the 2nd "cloud to cover the land" The attack is on both houses of Israel, and 3 nations from Gog's confederacy.

    ( Ezekiel 21:19) Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two ways (two clouds), that the sword....may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land....

    vs 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

    ( Luke 21:20-24) And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh...and shall be led away captive into all nations....( Ezekiel 21:31)
  • Simon on 2 Chronicles 10
    Part 3 continued:

    Gog has 42 months, minus 1 hour of absolute power left. The lead house of Israel was defeated ( Ezekiel 21:12) in the like manner as Babylon ( Isaiah 47). antichrist sets up his beast 'marked' government.

    ( Daniel 9:25) ...and to build Jerusalem the street shall be built again, and the wall (temple)...

    ( 2 Thessalonians 2:4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    ( Daniel 2:41) And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided...

    ( Daniel 11:44) But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy...

    ( Amos 1:6) The Philistines raided Judah under king Joram ( 2 Chronicles 21:16-17). They sold their captives to the archenemy of Israel, the Edomites.

    ( Obadiah 1:10) For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.

    ( Obadiah 1:8) Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau?

    ( Obadiah 6 & 7) All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee, they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee....

    ( Revelation 16:16) ....And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

    Gog's 42 months of power are coming to a close. His army is feuding to a point where, if allowed to, they would completely destroy the earth. This is the sole reason for the second coming of Jesus Christ: to prevent armies from ending the planet. When they of Revelation 16:16 see Christ's brightness upon Mt Olive, they will come down to the slaughter.
  • J2row on 2 Chronicles 10
    Hello Lyn.

    Read all of Psalm 91 and Jeremiah 29:11. These promises are to all those who put there faith and hope in God.

    Also, the vaccine are not of God. On my local news station, a medical physician stated that there are particles of the corkna virus in the vaccine itself, just like the H1N1 shot for Influenza. The Johnson and Johnson shot had to put on pause due to multiple reports of patients developing blood clots.

    Luke 8:43-44 quotes, "And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched."

    Jesus is the Great Physician, not man!

    There have been reports on the news that one dose of the vaccine is no guarantee an individual may still not contract the virus. There have been multiple reports that they may have administer three phrases of the covid-19 vaccine, meaning that one shot will not be enough, and even after the third trial of shots will still not promise any results from contracting covid. This is complete medical sorcery at it's highest form.

    This verse below talks about the fall of Babulon.

    Revelation 18:23 quotes, "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."

    The word sorceress in the Greek comes from the Greek word pharmakea, far-mak-i'-ah; from G5332; medication ("pharmacy"), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):-sorcery, witchcraft.

    Stongs concordance number G5332 comes from the Greek word pharmakes, far-mak-yoos'; from phrmakon (a drug, i.e. spell-giving potion); a druggist ("pharmacist") or poisoner, i.e. (by extension) a magician:-sorcerer.

    The vaccines are medical sorcery! God's advice is not to take it!
  • Eric Lopez on 2 Chronicles 10
    I don't get it. We already read this. I haven't heard nothing new. Why does the bible repeat this in Chronicles?
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 10
    Hi Eric. You have observed correctly: these Books of the Chronicles repeat a lot from the Books of Samuel & Kings. 1 & 2 Chronicles were originally a single Book (until 180 BC, I'm told) & Chronicles means, "the affairs of the days", i.e. retracing the history from Adam to the Babylonian captivity & then to Cyrus' decree to allow the Jews to return to their homeland. So, it is like a 'miniature abridged Old Testament'.

    Ezra is generally considered as the writer of these Books & no doubt uses the other books (& some other sources) to put these Chronicles together. Since it was Ezra who led a group of the exiles back to Palestine in 458 BC, he was concerned about building a true spiritual foundation for the people. So he compiled these books which emphasized the importance of racial & religious purity, the proper place of the Law, the Temple, & the priesthood. So, you'll notice that some detailed activities of the kings & prophets are missing (since you've already read through the Books of the Kings), but stresses instead the rich heritage & blessings that the people have in their covenant relationship to God.

    You're doing great, Eric - keep up the good work, digesting as much as you can of God's Holy Word.

    And now the Jews start fighting against one another. Brother against brother. Only thing I can say that it must be Gods will to bring us to Jesus.

    Accept wise counsel if you want to be a wise ruler.
  • Saundra Anderson on 2 Chronicles 10
    I agree with Matthew Henry.The counsel of the old men were to speak gentle and kind words instead of brute force suggested by the young men.We should listen to wise counsel of those tha ha ve gone before us!Rehoboram did not follow God s plan,but instead he followed his own desires in dealing with the Hebrew people.
  • Patrick on 2 Chronicles 10
    the better are the words or counsel of people who were there before you.If you are wise don 't wait to learn from your own mistakes but listen.People who can tell you good are fewer but the big team Have nothing good for you at all.
  • Grey justice on 2 Chronicles 10
    if GOD SAYS YES WHO CAN SY NO!! Thanks JESUS.
  • Grace on 2 Chronicles 10
    I don 't fully agree with you. If you do except our LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, the will of God will change , as you will have eternal life.
  • Davies mekgwe on 2 Chronicles 10
    If i do not want to be born again and accept Jesus to change my life .This connot chage God and will also not move God.It is my own good to live the life required by God.eg.God is the author of marriage and it is not an idear of the world.if you decide tomorrow and marry a woman,you do not favouring God but you a fulfilling his word as person with Jesus mind and thinking.
  • Andrea - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 10
    Not understanding this comment.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 10
    Andrea, I can see how the comment is difficult to understand. Going over it again & again, I have to assume that Davies is stating that God is aloof from His Creation. That it is up to us to do the right things in life, according to his commandments. That regeneration of the spirit is unnecessary. Though there are elements of truth/reality there, the basic assumption of living a good life is our responsibility without the need for God's intervention. So, his comment is simply based on his perceptions & not biblically based. And the Bible clearly states, that unless we are born again, we cannot see the Kingdom of God ( Jn 3:3).
