2 Kings 10 (Chapter 9 was taught, but no notes were taken, sorry)
Lesson taught by Tim, notes are Tim's and derks thoughts added in red
Jehu seems to be a very sly man as we also learned in the previous chapter. My guess is that thus was his way of testing their loyalty.
Because it was their decision not to make anyone king their loyalty was proven and Jehu had them behead the seventy sons of Ahab.
Jehu basically tells the people that nothing the lord says will ever fail to happen.
Jehu continues cleaning house. killing off the line of the king before him
More of the same but he meets Jehonadab and brings him along after a simple test.
Jehu, in his usual fashion, tricks the worshipers of Baal into a trap and after making sure there were no righteous among them he had them killed. and now we know why the toilet is a thone...
Jehu was rewarded for his efforts but instead of remaining righteous he continued to sin as Jereboam did.
Not much here...
How far are you willing to commit to God?
Kind of a large net of a question, but something good to think of
What is the one thing that keeps you from being committed to God?
