156 - Jeroboam and Rehoboam

Kathleen's thoughts
The Disobedient Prophet slain by a lion.

2 Chronicles 11: 5-23 12: 1, 14 12: 15-16
1 Kings 14: 1 - 31
There was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam throughout their reigns.

The rest of the events of Rehoboams reign, along with all his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's kings.

Rehoboam rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David. His son Abijah became king in his place.

Judgement of a man of God...A man of God disobeys the Lord by listening to a prophet who lived in Bethel  who invited him to come and eat with him and this man of God said he can't but the prophet had said angel told him to invite you so this man of God went with the prophet to dine with him by eating bread and drink.going back and eating bread and drinking. Then the Lord told the prophet to tell him he had sinned by turning back and eating the bread and drink. The Lord allowed him to be killed by a lion but the lion did not eat him or his donkey but just stood by him. When the prophet heard what had happened he had his donkey saddled and went and fetched him and buried him and told his sons when he dies to lay his bones besides this man of God's bones

Shishak king of Egypt invades Jerusalem  and seized the Treasuries of the Lords temple and the treasuries of the royal palace, He took everything. He took all the gold shields that Solomon had made.  This is very interesting! 

When Rehoboam had established his sovereignty and royal power, he abandoned the law of the Lord - he and all Israel with him.

Jeroboam's son gets sick and he sends his wife to Ahijah's the prophet to find out what is to happen and Ahijah predicts
I will eliminate all of Jeroboams males, both slave and free, in Israel; I will sweep away the house of Jeroboam as one sweeps aways dung until it is all gone! Anyone who belongs to Jeroboam and dies in the city, the dogs will eat, and anyone who dies in the field, the birds of the sky will eat, for the Lord has said it!
He tells Jeroboam's wife "As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will dies All Israel will mourn for him and bury him, for this one alone out of Jeroboam's sons will come to the grave, because in him alone out the house of Jeroboam something was found pleasing to the Lord God of Israel.
