Lesson taught by Will, notes taken by dErK
2 Kings 17
Ahaz is the king of Judah .. Hoshea is the king of Israel
'Shally' was the king of Assyria and So was in Egypt
Heshea is in prison
the king of Assyia was at war.. and takes over Israel
Again.. we have high places
God tried.. God warned.. but the people did not listen.. they were stubborn and did so very many things they were not suppose to.
of course.. this angered God
What do we get caught up in.. that is actually quite meaningless?
Video Games, Television, Facebook, 'Busy', Looks, Fashion, Pride, The Service that we do,
Much like Ecclesiastes - 'Chasing of the wind'
What is meaningful?
God/Jesus.. if YOU have them in the right place.. then everything will be meaningful
Israel got kicked out
we see Assyria is going to settle Israel
They had No Fear of God.. but.. God has a way of putting the fear into us..
Lions.. that'll do it
Earlier.. we saw how God tried to get the attention of Israel... now .. God got the attention of the people. .but decided to do what they wanted as well
God was prelavent.. maybe not in the way people wanted.. but .. He was with them..
whether we do right.. or wrong.. God is with us.. and can.. guide us.. if we choose to follow Him instead of ourselves.
