Two Kingdoms in Contrast

“A quarter of a century has passed since the once-powerful nation of Israel divided into two kingdoms.  Judah, blessed with two good leaders in Asa and his son Jehoshaphat, will remain largely faithful to God.  Both men will bring about reforms in Judah and reinstate appreciation for the law.

In Israel, by contrast, none of the next seven kings will bring moral enlightenment to an idolatrous nation, and civil war will continue to divide God’s people.  It is a sober reminder that God’s people will, through the ages, face division and strife when they forsake their God.”

Read: 1 Kings 15:8-34, 2 Chronicles 14, 1 Kings 14:19-20, 2 Chronicles 13:20, 2 Chronicles 15, 2 Chronicles 16, 1 Kings 16, 1 Kings 22:41-44 & 46-47, 2 Chronicles 17

“Ironically, even under such a king as Rehoboam it is the nation of Judah which remains somewhat faithful to God.  In the north, Jeroboam quickly leads Israel into idolatry, and over the next 25 years Israel will prove to be so wicked that even self-proclaimed prophets of God will be seen lying to each other.  The Levites, and others who are righteous in Israel, are forced southward to join with the people of Judah.

Civil conflict will last for years, as will wars with foreign enemies, who are quick to notice the vulnerability of this once-unified but now-broken people.  And Judah, as well as Israel, will turn its face to idolatry.”
