210.6: 1 Kings 16: More Bad Kings Establish Evil Idolatry in Direct Defiance of God

Yesterday, we met Asa, the first good king who ruled over Judah for 41 years. Today, we meet the 7 kings who ruled the northern kingdom of Israel during that time. SEVEN bad kings, who took Jeroboam’s worship of a couple of golden calves to the next level. Asa sat in the stable kingdom of Judah in Jerusalem and watched the royal turnover in Israel.

You see, when you give Satan just a tiny foothold, that’s all he needs to completely ruin everything. All this actually stems way back to David and his adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah. David lost 4 sons because of that. Solomon was his son with Bathsheba, who then became king. First, Solomon married a Egyptian princess, and eventually ended up with 700 wives and 300 concubines — all from foreign lands. These women brought their pagan worship, their idolatry into Israel. One sin led to another, bigger sin, which leads to a worse sin until… well, let’s dig in….
