1 Kings 15:25-34

25 And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel two years.

26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

27 And Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him; and Baasha smote him at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines; for Nadab and all Israel laid siege to Gibbethon.

28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him, and reigned in his stead.

29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:

30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

  1. 32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

    This was a great example of good versus evil. We find that Baasha did not follow the ways of the Lord and Asa did. We find that no matter how many people that had reigned as king of Israel, there was going to be judgment from God because the way Baasha went was tarnished by the wants and needs of the world. He was the type that wanted power and he was going to prove himself to those around him. There was war for at least 24 years between Israel and Judah.

    I am a firm believer that God was going to victorious no matter how much of Baasha he was going to destroy. As long as we live for Jesus and keep the word of God, we will be able to hold fast to the promise of eternal life. We have to make sure that we are the church of the living God and be the refuge that many will need to seek in this end time out pouring of God’s spirit. Live Jesus to give Jesus.

  2. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    God forbid that somebody would backslid because of my actions, help me Lord get it right.

  3. Rule after rule, brought more of the same sin and result….wars/death. Romans 6:22-23 MSG says “But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.” Same verses AMP “Romans 6:22-23 AMP “But now since you have been set free from sin and have become [willing] slaves to God, you have your benefit, resulting in sanctification [being made holy and set apart for God’s purpose], and the outcome [of this] is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” We have the choice to NOT listen to sin, look at sin or be around anything/anybody that is drawing us to sin….choose wisely as your life literally depends on it!

  4. 26. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    30. Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    34. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    I don’t want my life or actions to cause anyone else to stumble.

    Romans 14:13
    Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

  5. “because of the sins committed by Jeroboam and which he made Israel commit, and because he provoked the LORD God of Israel to anger.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:30‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    I pray for our leaders, in the church and in the world. Having responsibility over anyone isn’t easy. Jereboam led a whole nation into sin, in which only a few left to worship the True God of Israel. We all go through in life and because we are in leadership we’ve got a target on our backs. BUT thank God that doesn’t mean serving God and leading is impossible! It’s important to keep our leaders lifted up in prayer and make sure we ourselves are continuously seeking God and holding ourselves accountable.

  6. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Our actions and choices have influence. Where are you leading people?

    Be a positive and Christ-like role model today. Be a light for Jesus for all to see and follow!

  7. 33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    seems like they just went in full circle, both kings continually battling one another and israel is still in sin. I could see where this could get frustrating to God. We need to pray for israel. We need to pray for Jerusalem, this is a group of individuals that have been able to do nothing but compartmentalize God. They know him by nothing but El Shaddai (Lord God Almighty) El Elyon (The Most High God) Adonai (Lord, Master) Yahweh (Lord, Jehovah) Jehovah Nissi (The Lord My Banner) Jehovah Raah (The Lord My Shepherd) Jehovah Rapha (The Lord That Heals) Jehovah Shammah (The Lord Is There)

    But we literally have all those things in the name of Jesus, They have been in desperation to know who their God is since the beginning of time but little do they know is that we serve the same God.

  8. Wow….so not only did Asa put more faith in a neighboring nation to aid in war, but he took what had been dedicated to God to build a treaty.
    I’m all for treaties, peace and teamwork, but what you don’t do is remove something that is considered Holy and use it for your own gain. He had built up and reestablished the Lord’s temple in Judah and then when he was in a tight spot years later he compromised it.
    What have we dedicated to God, but through life events, worries, cares we forgot about that sacred agreement? What have we removed from our spiritual lives that use to be lavish and now is bankrupt, in need of a new deposit?
    Where are we holding our treasures and our security? Is it in the sanctuary and secret place of prayer? At His Feet in His Throne Room? Are we investing into the right things?
    The Lord our God is the only entity that is a constant. He is forever. Even heaven will pass away, but are we dedicating ourselves to the Lord everyday?

  9. 1 Kings 33-34 In the third year of Asa, king of Judah, began Baasha the son of Ahijah, to reign over all Istael in Tirzar, twenty and four years.
    [34] And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin with which he made Israel fo sin.
    This chapter shows that Boaha wars with Asa of Judah.
    As leaders we should be careful who we follow or lead.
    I must be a good example for our children now and the next generation.
    Without God in our lives we can’t lead people.
    We are responsible for our own sin.
    Your actions speak louder than words.
    Live Jesus !

  10. 15:33 in the third year of Asa king Judah
    Began to reign Baasha the son of Ahiyah over all
    Israel, in Tirza twenty and four years.
    ——
    Ok, this king Nadab did that which was evil
    In the sight of the The Lord.
    And Basha did the same thing ( evil)
    Where are the mothers? ( I do t see them mentioned)
    I believe God is paying attention to someone who has been praying.
    A mother, a grandma… soon , there’ll be a man who will reign, that will do that which is please my in the eyes of God.
    🙏🙏🙏

  11. 34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    This is why God holds leaders to a higher standard. In most cases, those that are following the leader will continue to follow even if they are being led astray. We don’t know much about Baasha other than he went to war against Asa and he did what was evil in the sight of God. When we lead, not only do we need to be aware of whose following us but how we are leading them.

  12. “As soon as he was king he killed everyone in Jeroboam’s family. There wasn’t a living soul left to the name of Jeroboam; Baasha wiped them out totally, just as GOD ’s servant Ahijah of Shiloh had prophesied—punishment for Jeroboam’s sins and for making Israel sin, for making the GOD of Israel thoroughly angry.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:29-30‬ ‭MSG

    Your actions have consequences. Make sure they are positive. If you live for Jesus your actions will have a positive influence on others.

  13. Evil and wrong doing was done in the sight of the Lord. People were lost and quit following God because of all the discord and fighting. This is happening everywhere today! Give Jesus,live Jesus!! I love POFW

  14. 1Chronicles 15
    26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in jhis sin by which he had made Israel sin.

    We truly do not know the influence we have on someone else by our actions. When leadership sins it had a great effect on those they are leading and many became scattered and wounded with questions of their own faith. Look around you who is following you. Your children , family , your neighbors , your friends.
    Someone is. We as children of God must hold on to truth and stay in the book . Follow God and who ever you are allowing to lead you be sure they are also following God.

    One of Paul’s very first instructions to his protégé, Timothy was to pray “for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Timothy 2:2 NIV).

    We must pray for our leaders and if we are leading we must truly lead as God would lead.
    In Jesus I nuts Live Jesus so I can Give Jesus

  15. “In the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha son of Ahijah became king of all Israel in Tirzah, and he reigned twenty-four years. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, following the ways of Jeroboam and committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:33-34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Baasha became king because he killed King Nadab because he was trying to clean up the mess of sin Baasha had created before God. However, in the event of doing so he finds himself in the same exact place as king Jeroboam, creating a mess of sin. It’s easy to stand from the sidelines and judge the actions and lifestyle of others but if we aren’t careful we could easily find ourselves in the same position. Just because we have chosen to live for God and follow him does not necessarily make us immune to downfall and self sabotage, if anything it makes us a bit more vulnerable of falling into sin. We should be able to recognize this and it should enable us to have more love and compassion for others instead of wanting to quickly pass judgment on them.

  16. LIVE – GIVE JESUS
    WHEN LEADERSHIP SINS

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Jeroboam led Asa to sin and Asa led Israel to sin. The trend is obvious without a clear call to repentance a Leaders sinful life will be reciprocated to the next generation and all those that follow their lead.

    Influence is a unique gift. Leadership is defined by some as influence. However one could have influence and not be a leader, but one cannot be a leader without having influence.

    If we consider ourselves Leaders in the Kingdom of GOD our plan, focus and purpose should be to be LEADERS that please GOD. WHEN LEADERSHIP SINS it causes nations to fall.

  17. I Kings 15:34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    We must not be a stumbling block for anyone as we lead them to Christ.

    Live a Holy life and lead this world to Jesus.

    1Ki 15:34  And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    This is an interesting fact… out of all the kings of the ten tribes of Israel (the ones who separated from Judah) there was not (and would never be) one righteous king who would do right. Judah would have several kings who would be righteous, but not Israel. I believe that one reason Judah may have righteous kings is because they remembered their Heritage. This led to revival of once was thanks for the example of King David. Even to this day the nation of Israel remembers king David with the star David on ther flag

  19. 30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    Can a leader take his nation to sin??? Yes!!! Lord guide our leaders and make our Nation a Nation that loves and serves the Lord Jesus Christ Above all else!!! In Jesus Name Amen 🙏🏻 we have a responsibility to pray for our leader no matter who they are or what they believe in!!! Can our prayers change the world YES THEY CAN!!!! Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  20. 29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:

    Sin has to be cut off at the root. This is why true repentance is so important. If someone just repents because of emotion at the moment or someone wants them to, but it is not in their heart, they will go right back to that sin after a period of time.

    When something in our lives is causing us to sin, we must rid ourselves of that, cut it off. Take it to God in prayer and ask Him to prone out the root that caused that sin. Sometimes we even have to remove people that are associated with that sin, to keep the temptation from us until we overcome that area.

    Matthew 5:29
    And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

  21. 29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:
    30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    Jeroboam’s sins not only cost his son’s life, but all of his family too. His stubborn resistance to God’s ways cost many. He led by example and they all fell. We do lead with our example-neighbors see us come and go to church, children see live right -bless our food, and see us blessed. My prayer is that they have a hunger and thirst for his righteousness and desire to serve God too so that they will experience this godly way of life, his presence and his goodness too.

  22. “Now Nadab the son of Jeroboam became king over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin by which he had made Israel sin.”
    ‭‭I Kings‬ ‭15:25-26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    In this passage, one thing that stood out to me was how the leader of the Israel led/made the people sin. It matters who you allow to lead you. And as a leader your relationship with God and the things you do will affect those you’re leading. A leader leads at all times.

  23. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    When in a position of leadership, you have great influence on others. They’re watching you and following your lead.

    And if you become distracted and fall into sin, you might just be taking them with you.

    It is important as a leader to lead by example, by living a repented life, a life pleasing to God.

    A leader leads at all times.

  24. 1 Kings 15:34
    But he did what was evil in the lord’s sight and followed the example of Jeroboam, continuing the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.

    Search me Lord and get rid of everything in me that is not pleasing to you. People look at us and how we live. Be a good example.

  25. 1 Kings 15:25 & 26
    25) And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel two years.
    26) And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    The words that stood out to me in these verses are… “he did evil, – and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin…”
    Proverbs 22:6 tells us to, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
    The sad part of this story is that Nadab did evil because he walked and “followed the example of his father” (nlt), Jeroboam, who taught, trained, and lead him in his sin.
    So the question is, as a parent, what are we teaching and training our children? How are we leading them? Are we teaching, training, and leading them in sinful ways, or are we teaching, training, and leading them in the way of righteousness, in JESUS Christ?
    This also applies to us as a spiritual parents. What are we teaching and training Sunday School Children and New Believers? How are we leading them?
    Titus 2:7 (NLT) says, “And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.”
    Let’s Lead By Example in the Way of Righteousness. LIVE JESUS – GIVE JESUS!

  26. Jeroboam’s son, Nadab, took over Israel’s throne during the second year of Asa’s reign over Judah. Nadab ruled Israel for two years. [26] He committed evil in the eyes of the Eternal One, walking the wicked path of his father and causing the Israelites to live sinful lives.
    1 Kings 15:25-26 Voice
    Nadab, king of the ten tribes, just reigned 2 years. He was an evil, idolatrous king. The worst sin of all is when you cause others to sin. We as Leaders should set good examples for our people. Nadab set a bad example.
     

  27. 34But he did what was evil in the LORD’s sight and followed the example of Jeroboam, continuing the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.

    Learning by example. You learn by watching others, and more than likely you’ll continue that trend, just like a Baasha did. Yes, children learn from their parents, but adults also learn from their elders.

  28. 30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    Leadership has many responsibilities and the followers of false doctrine are at the mercy of the Lord, and false teachers will not escape the wrath of God.

  29. “Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned,and which he made Israel sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.
    1 Kings 15:30
    Wow, to help make others sin, how horrible is this. If you truly love Jesus we will do everything possible to help prevent anyone from sinning. I love you ❤ you Jesus help me to be a good steward and I thank you for this day and I pray to guide those lost to your word!

  30. What’s coming after you?

    33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    What are we leaving for our son’s and daughters to build upon in the next generation? Are we going to leave a mess for them to clean up? Are we going to make it hard for them to succeed or survive? Or are we going to give them something to build upon, something to latch on to? What we do right now may tell the story for not only us but or children coming after us. It is so important for us to set the bar and provoke them to good works because once that slippery slope is started it is hard to stop. We need to make it easy for them to succeed.

  31. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    It matters what leadership does. The king made Israel sin when the learders don’t stand for what is right the people they are leading won’t stand either and fall into sin.
    As leaders let us always remember to li e righteous and holy

  32. 34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Oh how careful we should be with the way we act, talk, and live. The thought of making it to heaven and learn that our actions caused others to follow us down the wrong road and others followed. To find out that someone’s eternity is hell pm the account of something I’ve said.

    Jesus teach me to guard my words and actions carefully. That I may not become a stumbling block to others

  33. 1 Kings 15:25-34

    This is a history of three kings Jeroboam and Baasha were a part Israel’s 10 tribes and Asa King of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin. King Asa pleased the Lord and Jeroboam and Baasha did evil in the sight of the Lord and led their tribes in Idolatry. Bassha stole the throng by killing everyone in Jeroboam family including Jeroboam. Baasha followed in the foot steps of Jeroboam. Application choose this day who you will serve. No one falls into sin they choose it. Think on this thought.

  34. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Sometimes we have to think about our choices. Some things we do may affect us and others as well. I pray tonight that we are all making good choices!!!

  35. 34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    A warning to leaders. The choices you make can affect those that follow you. When you become a leader, it’s no longer just about you. You are now responsible for those that follow you. This is why it’s very important for leaders to always be on guard. The enemy would love nothing more then to take you down and cause others to come with you. God gives us strength to stand strong and against everything the enemy throws our way.

  36. 34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    When you are in a position of leadership you not only answer to your sins, but those whom follow you becuase they will be led by you. It would be better to be said of you that you made your people to seek the Lord.

  37. “This was done because Jeroboam had provoked the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, by the sins he had committed and the sins he had led Israel to commit.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:30‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Sin has driven jeroboam farther and apart of God will and blessings. Jeroboam sin affected the Israeli and got token away from power because of his disobedience.

  38. “But he did what was evil in the Lord’s sight and followed the example of Jeroboam, continuing the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    No one can serve two masters for either you will hate the one, and love the other for you cannot serve both God and mammon. When we chose to live Jesus we have put to death our worldly desires and surrender our life to God and get baptized in Jesus name and follow all His ways. God’s ways are great than this world which is only temporarily, and ways of sin leads to death.

  39. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    When we take a step in the wrong path you start to slip slowly but surely. Then you notice you hurt the ones you love the most, you start to drag them down with you. That’s why we need to be closer to God, to make sure we don’t start to slip. But if we start to slip we know we have God there to pick us back up . There is also times when he allows us to go through things so we learn that where we are heading is just another chance to get hurt again, but we start to realize we won’t through it so we wouldn’t return to it , so that we knew there is nothing we are missing out on.

  40. “Baasha also disobeyed the Lord by acting like Jeroboam, who had caused the Israelites to sin.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:34‬ ‭CEV‬‬

    As a teacher in our Sunday school , our children are our number one priority! We teach them from the word of GOD. Being a Christian is not only saying that I am one, but living and being a prime example to them. It’s important to teach them that Jesus is the only the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE…

    “Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his abilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭22:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    ‘‘You’re children are coming home’.

    I’m holding on to this prophetic word!!
    It shall come to pass.
    Jesus is faithful…always!!!
    Hallelujah!!!!

  41. 26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.
    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Nadab followed in the footsteps of his Father. It says he did evil in the sight of the Lord and because of this it caused the people to sin as well. “. . . he did evil in the sight of the Lord, . . . in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.” Sometimes we think that our actions don’t have an effect on other people, but they do. What we do influences the actions of others, ESPECIALLY AS A LEADER! Our sins could influence others to sin and our good deeds could influence others to go out and do great things! What type of an influencer will you be?? What path of decisions will you choose to make??

  42. V.26

    We must not do evil in the sight of the Lord because people are watching and following us to make it to heaven and we must be ready. Seek the Lord with everything in you and win many souls! Revival!

  43. “In the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha son of Ahijah became king in Tirzah over all Israel. He ruled twenty-four years. He was openly evil before GOD, walking in the footsteps of Jeroboam, who both sinned and made Israel sin.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:33-34‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    Not only did one ruler oppose God, the one who followed him did as well. Then because the leader fell to the ways of the world, so did the kingdom. People follow their leaders. This is why we should pray for our leaders! Jesus help
    our whole nation. He the leaders to set Godly examples before us that will lead us in paths of righteousness.

  44. 30 “This was done because Jeroboam had provoked the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, by the sins he had committed and the sins he had led Israel to commit.” NLT

    Our choices and actions will never just effect us. They will have a rippling effect that will not only have consequences to ourselves but those around us.

    As leaders, we must LIVE Jesus in a way that will allow others to GIVE Jesus, not handle the consequences of our poor choices.

  45. “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord, but Baal”s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.”
    1 Kings 18:21-22

    One man who truly loves the Lord, and 450 who worship Baal. Obviously, what is POPULAR is not always the right choice! You must question what everyone is doing and is right with Jesus? All the Baal prophets ended up dead as Elijah had called on the true and only God, and false prophets ended up dead. Thank you Jesus for this day.

  46. “And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭15:29‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    He did what God said. It wasn’t the very first thing that he did, but he did obey. We have to listen and obey so that we can follow God.
