2 Kings Chapter 22 Discussion



 
  • Samuel Francis on 2 Kings 22
    Verse 2 in 2Kings 22 mentions David as Josiah's father. In what capacity is he his father, since Amon is his biological father?

    Samuel,

    When you look at the kings of the United Kingdom of Israel, Saul, David and Solomon, they ALL had fatal flaws, but in spite of that fact, David was a man after God's own heart...

    "And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will." Act 13:22

    Following Solomon's reign, the kingdom split and very very few of the kings displayed any heart toward God and as a result the Assyrians and Babylonians invaded their countries and took captives.

    Josiah was one of the very few who had a heart for God like is "father" David.

    "And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left." 2Ki 22:2

    David and Josiah both show up in Jesus' genealogy in Matthew 1:6,10, and, yes, Amon is there too, but was NOT like David...

    "Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his father Manasseh did. And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them: And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the LORD." 2Ki 21:19-22

    As it was with David, and the handful of godly Princes who reigned; so it was for Josiah, that the most of the people did not fear the Lord and walk before Him in truth and holiness in the same way. So while the righteous lived it was a benefit that brought the blessings of mercy and quietness to all; when the godly are taken away, the people must then give account of themselves before God.

    What a wonderful thing that these people had removed the living god from his rightful place in a nation just like America and many others and yet raised up leadership that took a stand pleasing to himself god is yet merciful but scripture indicates that there will be a reckoning day for sinners and nations refusing to promote his holy word

    Its good to get a full understanding of the whole Bible. (e.g. v 3) In the eighteenth year of Josiah, Jeremiah had already been preaching to the people for five years; so when we read what Jeremiah was told to say; we have a picture of what the times were like, and what kind of people the rest of the country was; even though God gave them king Josiah! We should see our times as the Lord sees them.

    Josiah submitted and humbled his heart before God of Israel and sought the desire to comprehend the requirements of the Almighty God from him(Josiah).

    2 Kings 22 clearly states that there were men who were against God and then there were those who were for God. Those who were against God fought and were at wars with God's people. They despised the Bible because God's word was in it. They got rid of the bibles also. Hatred was a plus for them. Now those who were for God read his words from the bible and believed in Him. They loved Him.

    The crop was planted and the harvest must always come forth...those things which took place earlier brought repecursions.Sin always brings forth it 's ramafications.No wonder the Bible says do not be deceived God cannot be mocked you shall reap what you sow...Thus, indeed sin is not bad because it is forbidden,sin is forbidden because sin is bad.But it brings peace in my heart when i know that God is just...and like Josiah, if my heart is sincerely right in seeking Him in true repentance,then,God will surely have spare and have mercy on me..inspite of His coming judgement

    IF JOSIAH THE GRAND CHILD OF MANASEH SERVED GOD FAITHFULLY, THEN WHATEVER MAY BE UR PARENTAL BACKROUND U CAN CHOOSE TO MAK A DIFFERENCE BY GIVING UR HEART TO CHRIST AND SERVE GOD FAITHFULLY. IT IS POSSIBL FOR U TO B A CHILD OF GOD AND MAKE HEAVEN.
