2 Kings Chapter 15 Discussion

    Before Jesus came, God dwelt with the people first in a Tabernacle (tent) and then in the Temple. The Temple was God's house on earth.

    2Ch 7:1-3 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house. (2) And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD'S house. (3) And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

    Because it was God's house, He demanded that worship could only take place there. Worshiping in "high places" was the first act of rebellion against God after the Temple was built. They started out worshiping the one true God in the little temples they as constructed in the high places but soon converted them to worshiping other gods.

    The temple was a picture of Jesus Christ. There is only one way today to worship God, and that is through Jesus Christ.

    Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Why was sacrificing in high places bad in the eyes of the Lord? Seems this was a sin evil the Kings did right by the eyes of the Lord? I saw the comment before me that it is explained in Chronicles. I guess I'll just have to wait.

    Daniel, this age-old question can find no answers amongst mankind. Simply because for us to correctly answer any question, we must have sufficient knowledge stored in our brains to be able to process that information & give out some answer (whether correctly or not). And since we are 'mere' humans with great limitations, there is no way we can fathom God's eternal Being in our minds simply because we have reached the limits of our knowledge & understanding. All we can ever know in this life, is that God exists, always had & always will and even with this knowledge, we have to confess that we cannot know any more than this. This is why atheists maintain their belief in the non-existence of God: simply because they have tried to figure Him out & since they can't find answers, the belief that there is no God must be the correct answer. We cannot trust our human minds at all on such matters - it's better for us to stick to the knowledge that has been given to us over the ages & work through them only.

    Azariah, also was called Uzziah , please read 2 Chronicles chapter 26, it will explain why God smote Azariah and he became a leper.

    Azariah was 16 when he was made king. He did right in the eyes of God. Why then did God smote him? He also was a leper.

    azariah reigned 52 years - i think that 's the longest tenure of any king mentioned - surprisingly little is mentioned of him - in that same time isreal had a lot of turnaround in the leadership department and i suppose there is a point to this
