Asa became king of Judah in the twentieth year of Jeroboam of Israel’s reign (Jeroboam was the first king of the northern kingdom of Israel after the kingdom divided). Asa’s father, Abijah, had done much evil in God’s sight and only ruled for three years. Asa’s grandfather, Rehoboam, had also done evil in God’s sight. But King Asa instituted reform; he removed the male shrine prostitutes
Romans 5: 6-11
At this point, the Chronicler’s account of Rehoboam’s reign diverged considerably from that of Kings. The account in Chronicles is longer, with material not found in Kings. Furthermore, while the overall evaluation of Rehoboam is the same in both accounts (cf. 2Ch 12:14 and 1Kg 14:22) there is more place given to Rehoboam’s albeit temporary repentance (2Ch 12:6) and to examples from Rehoboam’s reign that indicate the Davidic promise endured despite the king’s evil.
He didn’t heed God’s warnings (13:1–34) This long chapter is not about young and old prophets; it’s about King Jeroboam and his sins. The young prophet’s ministry is very important in this account, for all that he said and experienced, including his death, were a part of God’s warning to King Jeroboam. According to verse 33, the king didn’t turn back to God: “After this event, Jeroboam did not return from his evil ways” (nasb).
The private ministry of our Lord with His disciples has now ended,
and the public drama of redemption is about to begin. Man will do
his worst, and God will respond with His very best. “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom. 5:20).

Teaching Book of Matthew | Pastor Julius T. Davis Jr
Minister Rich Lampley II, Many Bible scholars believe that the book of Matthew is the most important document of the Christian faith. It connects the Old and New Testaments and introduces a king, the Lord Jesus, and His people, the church. The book of Matthew offers a unique look at the revolutionary life and words of Jesus and shares His dynamic principles for becoming a faithful subject in the kingdom of God.
Pastor Julius T. Davis Jr. Friendship Baptist Church of Girard, Ohio JOHN 11 The raising of Lazarus from the dead was not our Lord’s last miracle before the cross, but it was certainly His greatest and the one that aroused the most response from both His friends and His enemies.
"David Fleeing from Absalom"
Absalom wanted to be King and he tried to turn the people of Israel away from his father. David wound up fleeing for his life from Absalom… Absalom rode under a tree and got his hair caught in the boughs of the tree where he was left hanging. One of King David's men came upon him and killed him…

We have seen in the first ten chapters of 2 Samuel how God empowered David to defeat Israel’s enemies and establish and expand the kingdom. 2 Sam. & 1 Chron. Then David committed the sins of adultery, murder, and deception (chap. 11—12), and the rest of the book describes David wrestling with problems caused by his own children. His days are dark and disappointing, but he still depends on the Lord, and the Lord enables him to overcome and prepare the nations for the reign of his son Solomon.
