2 Chronicles 11 and 12

Study 7 – 2 Chronicles 11 and 12

  1. According to 12:14 “He did evil because he had not set his heart on seeking the Lord.” Rehoboam was quick to repent, but he was also quick to get off track.

  2. Shemaiah was able to avoid disaster in the land of Judah by convincing Rehoboam to obey the Word of the Lord. The Church can keep a nation from the wrath of God, but the Church must take the lead in the area of repentance and must set the standard of ethical behavior. When the Church behaves in the same manner as the world you can rest assured that the judgment of God will come upon a nation.

  3. Through the subjugation of Jerusalem to Shishak, king of Egypt, the Lord wanted the people to learn the difference between serving Him and serving men. He wanted them to come to the realization that serving God was the better choice.
