170 - Joash's godly reigns

Kathleen's thoughts.

2 Kings 11: 17-20 2 Chronicles 23: 16-21 Revival under Jehoiada

2 Chronicles 24: 3 Jehoiada acquired two wives for him, and he was the father of sons and daughters

2 Kings 10: 34-36 Jehu's death  Jehu rested with his fathers, and he was buried in Samaria. His son Jehoahaz became king in his place. Jehu reigned over Israel for 28 years.

2 Chronicles 24: 4-7, 2 Kings 12: 4-8 Faithless priests. Joash took it to heart to renovate the Lords temple and told the priests what to do by collecting money from all Israel to repair the temple of your God as need year by year, and do it quickly. However the Levites did not hurry. The King asked Jehoiada the high priest and he said. But by the 23rd year of the reign of King Joash the priest had not repaired the damage to the temple. In the end they decided not to take money from the people and would not repair the temple's damage.

2 Kings 13: 1-2 Jehoahaz In the twenty-third year of Judah's King Joash son of Ahaziah, Jehoahaz son of Jehu became king over Israel in Samaria He reigned 17years. He did what was evil in the Lord's eyes. and followed the sins that Jeroboam son of Nebat had caused Israel to commit.

2 Kings 13: 3-7, 22 Hazael king of Aram oppressed Israel throughout the reign of Jehoahaz.

2 Kings 12: 9-16 2 Chronicles 24: 8-14 Joash repairs the Temple.

Joel 1: 1-20 Plague of insects. Destroys the land and famine prevails.

God is telling us to wake up and take note of what is going on around you. Watch what the locusts are doing to our land and families today.  The day and the hour is drawing near make sure you ready for the bridegroom your oil lamps are burning and don't run out of oil for them.
