Discuss 2 Kings 9

  • Chris - In Reply on 2 Kings 11 - 2 years ago
    Hi William. We would say it this way: 'royal seed'. 2 Kings 11:1 can be connected to 2 Kings 9:27, where King Jehu ordered the killing of King Ahaziah (Judah). So, when the mother of Ahaziah (Athaliah) "saw that her son was dead", she not only became incensed, but also sought to destroy every possible heir apparent to the throne. But she missed one heir, Joash. He was kept hidden for six years and later became King of Judah. But in the interim (for six years), the wicked mother, Athaliah, reigned over Judah.

    Hi Deborah,

    You will find this passage in Luke 19:40. "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out." (NIV) This refers back to Hab. 2:11)

    This Jesus said in response to the Pharisees told Jesus to rebuke his followers (disciples) when the multitude of disciples rejoiced and praised God when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the colt. They said. "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" ( Luke 19:37-38. This is also stated in Psalm 118:26, 2 Kings 9:13.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Jesse, if you know some unleavened elders, please look at James 5 - remember 2 Cor 12:7-10 - Phil 4:11 - 1 Thess 5:18

    James 5 - 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    -

    Some points to consider on it:

    1. According to the Bible, only men can be elders ( 1 Timothy 2:11-15 - 1 Corinthians 14:34-36 - 1 Timothy 3:1-2 - Titus 1:6)

    2. The anointing oil needs to be done; it's not "just medicinal" like some teach - (Read Mark 6:7 & 6:12-13 those were clearly supernatural healings, and yet they still used the anointing oil - when they anointed in the Old Testament, they simply poured oil on someone's head ( Leviticus 8:12 - 2 Kings 9:6 - 1 Samuel 10:1) - you don't need any man to "bless the oil", the Bible did not say to do that - the anointing simply needs to be done in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    3. It says "the prayer of faith shall save the sick", so I encourage everyone to be praying that God will give the gift of faith to both parties during that time - earlier in James, it shows us faith is essential when praying, otherwise "...let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord." ( James 1:6-7)

    -

    And a short gospel message - Jesus said "...repent ye, and believe the gospel."

    Repent in that context is godly sorrow for having broken God's commandments ( 2 Cor 7:8-11)

    Romans 13:9 "For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

    Hi Debbie, please ask your husband if he can look at what the king James Bible says in James 5 about sickness:

    James 5 - 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

    Romans 13:9 "For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

    God miraculously healed me, and since you mentioned healing, I wanted to share how any Christian can be healed:

    James 5 - 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    -

    Some points to consider about that passage:

    1. According to the Bible, only men can be elders ( 1 Timothy 2:11-15 - 1 Corinthians 14:34-36 - 1 Timothy 3:1-2 - Titus 1:6)

    2. The anointing oil needs to be done; it's not "just medicinal" like some teach - (Read Mark 6:7 & 6:12-13 those were clearly supernatural healings, and yet they still used the anointing oil - when they anointed in the Old Testament, they simply poured oil on someone's head ( Leviticus 8:12 - 2 Kings 9:6 - 1 Samuel 10:1) - you don't need any man to "bless the oil", the Bible did not say to do that - the anointing simply needs to be done in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    3. It says "the prayer of faith shall save the sick", so I encourage everyone to be praying that God will give the gift of faith to both parties during that time - earlier in James, it shows us faith is essential when praying, otherwise "...let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord." ( James 1:6-7)

    2 Timothy 2:15

    Please also read 2 Kings 3, 2 Kings 12, 2 Kings 13, 2 Kings 14:1-3, pay very close attention to the differences because in these accounts it clarifies who the scripture refers to by details not necessarily the "name of the individual" there are very similar names buth differences in Jerusalem, Israel, Syria, differences in parents & even who they fought against. Significant details that should help you break down for truth. Please note also in 2 Kings the reigning of the son clearly seems to overlap as you described. Just like King David when he was still alive & sick, yet they both would retain "title". 2 Kings 13:1,9,

    2 Kings 9:1-9, 2 Kings 9:11-12 King of Israel, Jehu. 2 Kings 9:14-16, Jehu "conspired against Joram. (Hazel king of Syria)

    vrs 16. * Ahaziah king of Judah * 2 Kings 9:21, 2 Kings 9:22-24, 2 Kings 9:27,28 details buried in City of David. 2 Kings 9:29,

    2 Kings 8:7-15 "Hazael king of Syria" same guy? 2 Kings 10:31-32, 2 Kings 34-36,

    2 Kings 8:16-24,

    2 Kings 8:25-29, 22 yrs old Ahaziah over Jerusalem 1 yr,

    * 2 Kings 11:1-4 son of Ahaziah, keep reading 2 Kings 11:5-21, * (Son in biblical terms goes many generations) example: John 8:39

    This may be the account that clarifies the distinction you're looking for.

    1 Kings 22:51-53 details, 2 yrs over Israel Ahaziah,

    Hopefully this is helpful

    I just learned today that heat, humidity, and especially sunlight are very effective against certain viruses. But if your sickness is severe or becomes severe, please consider following this passage:

    James 5 "14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

    If you don't have access to elders (because there is a lot of leaven out there), you can still "call for the elders of the church" in your prayers to the Lord, and He can bring them to you. But until then, there is some natrual things you can do for hypothyroidism - You don't need to do Keto (as all God's foods are acceptable 1 Timothy 4), but I did find a lot of info in these YouTube Dr.Berg videos helpful:

    Hello Andrew, I'm hoping when you said "God can't fix all things" that was a typo, and you meant "can", because He can fix and do anything He likes:

    2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee."

    The Book is the Bible. The story in Chronicles.

    "in a battle at Ramoth-gilead Jehoram, the king of Israel, had" "been wounded; and leaving his army there, had returned to" "Jezreel, whither his ally, Ahaziah, king of Judah, had also gone" "on a visit of sympathy with him ( 2 Kings 8:28, 29). The" "commanders, being left in charge of the conduct of the war, met" "in council; and while engaged in their deliberations, a" "messenger from Elisha appeared in the camp, and taking Jehu from" "the council, led him into a secret chamber, and there anointed" "him king over Israel, and immediately retired and disappeared (2" "Kings 9:5, 6). On being interrogated by his companions as to the" "object of this mysterious visitor, he informed them of what had" "been done, when immediately, with the utmost enthusiasm, they" blew their trumpets and proclaimed him king ( 2 Kings 9:11-14). "He then with a chosen band set forth with all speed to Jezreel," "where, with his own hand, he slew Jehoram, shooting him through" "the heart with an arrow (9:24). The king of Judah, when trying" "to escape, was fatally wounded by one of Jehu's soldiers at" "Beth-gan. On entering the city, Jehu commanded the eunchs of the" "royal palace to cast down Jezebel into the street, where her" mangled body was trodden under foot by the horses. Jehu was now "master of Jezreel, whence he communicated with the persons in" "authority in Samaria the capital, commanding them to appear" before him on the morrow with the heads of all the royal princes of Samaria. Accordingly on the morrow seventy heads were piled "up in two heaps at his gate. At "the shearing-house" (2 Kings" 10:12-14) other forty-two connected with the house of Ahab were "put to death ( 2 Kings 10:14). As Jehu rode on toward Samaria, he" "met Jehonadab (q.v.), whom he took into his chariot, and they" entered the capital together. By a cunning stratagem he cut off "all the worshippers of Baal found in Samaria ( 2 Kings 10:19-25),"

    Ken, in answer to your questions:

    1. Luke 17:26-30 tells us in the last days before Jesus returns to Earth, things will go on as normal: just as they did in Lot's time. But all of a sudden God's Judgement will be poured out, as did happen to Sodom & Gomorrah, so the instruction to the Jews not to return back for their worldly goods (i.e. to preserve their lives).

    2. There are many references to homosexuality in both the Old & New Testaments. Some of these are: Leviticus 20:13 (& see other verses in this chapter about the detestable acts that God abhors; also Lev chap 18); Romans 1:24-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:8-10.

    In reference to wearing of make-up: even though passages such as 1 Timothy 2:9,10 & 1 Pet 3:3,4 speak about the wearing of respectable, godly apparel & not about putting on of make-up, there are references to it that associate it with harlotry when beauty had to be enhanced to allure the men: 2 Kings 9:30, Jeremiah 4:30. Leviticus 19:28 speaks about printing marks & cutting of flesh which what Israel must not do (as the heathen did).
