NEW- I made the video- Kings 16- ‘off the cuff’- in the middle of a busy week- but wanted to keep doing the Kings study.
I’ll add my past teaching below and do a few points here.
We see Jehu the prophet ‘pronounce’ certain things [judgment]-
1Kings 16:1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying,
1Kings 16:2 Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel; and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins;
1Kings 16:3 Behold, I will take away the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house; and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
1Kings 16:4 Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth of his in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat.
And sure enough- these words come to pass-
1Kings 16:10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.
1Kings 16:11 And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.
1Kings 16:12 Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet.
Even though wicked men carry them out- yet they happened by the word of the Lord.
We also see the introduction of Ahab- and his famous wife Jezebel- in this chapter.
Which means we will see Elijah the prophet over the next few weeks [or months?]-
Which makes the next few chapters a bit more interesting.
At the end of the chapter we see what might seem to be an obscure detail-
A man decides to rebuild the famous city of Jericho- destroyed many years earlier under the rule of Joshua [you remember- the walls come tumbling down].
But during the conquest of the promised land- Joshua placed a curse on the man who would build it some day-
Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.
And sure enough- these many years later- the curse came to pass-
1Kings 16:34 In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun.
I also taught a little bit of history- and mentioned the writings of the apostle John- and his theme of the logos- the Word of God.
Actually- in a way it fit with the Chapter- we see the events of history as being framed by the word of God.
Jehu spoke the word of the Lord- and those words did indeed come to pass.
Joshua spoke by the anointing of God- and his words came to pass years later.
The Word of God- spoken by the people of God- carries great authority.
God spoke his Word- he sent his Son as the incarnate Word- the Word made flesh.
And it is thru this act- which we just happen to be celebrating at this season- that all men can find peace and hope.
Yes- the words spoken by Jehu- and Joshua- did bring judgment.
But the Word that God speaks today is life- hope- healing- yes- as many at this season say- peace on Earth and good will towards men.
Because the redeemer has come- and his name is called- THE WORD OF GOD-
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [see the rest here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/12/28/kings-16/ ]
