Daily Bible Reading Day 302

Daily Bible Reading Day 302: 2 Kings 10 & 11/                2 Timothy 1

2 Kings 10

Jehu followed most of God’s demands, especially ending the generations of Ahab and removing the pagan worship of Baal. However, Jehu did not stop the worship of the golden calves.

The event of ending Ahab’s descendants ended up being more like a slaughter.  There are many people who say Christians cause a lot of death.  However, this comes from people making these decisions not from God.  God did not instruct Jehu to slaughter more people.

Israel was to only worship God.  Unfortunately, pagan religions were still allowed to be worshipped.  Therefore, sin caused a lot of destruction and death.

2 Kings 11

There was an attempt to kill all the sons of the royal line of King Jeroham.  One of the children, Joash, was hidden in the temple and escaped murder.

Joash became king at age 7.  His mother, high priests, and other advisers helped Joash reign over Judah.

2 Timothy 1

“For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love, and of a self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Paul was in jail.  He still was faithful and shared the gospel.  He wrote a letter to Timothy, his friend and partner in ministry.  Paul lost everything, but he had his security in Jesus.   He knew God had control over everything, no matter his circumstances.

Paul told TImothy to be bold during his trials.  He said that The Holy Spirit can give us power when we need help.

Daily Bible Reading Day 301: 2 Kings 9/1 Timothy 6

2 Kings 9

Elijah, many years ago, had prophesized that Jehu would become king of Israel.  Elisha told a man to anoint Jehu with oil, but to get out of there as quickly as possible, for he knew many would die.

King Jehu destroyed Ahab and Jezebel’s family.  God brought this to pass under Jehu.  Jezebel destroyed many lives.  There was a prophesy that dogs would eat Jezebel.  She was by a window and called out to Jehu.  She accused him of being like Zimri, an army commander who had killed Elah.  Jehu yelled for the eunuchs to throw her from the window.  She died.  Jehu left to eat.  He asked to have her buried somewhere since she was the daughter’s king.  When they returned, only her head, feet, and hands were left.  The dogs had gotten to her body.

1 Timothy 6

Paul taught about the love of money is the root of all evil and how having great wealth in a heavy responsibility.  Many people find their security in money.  Money is fleeting; it can go away in the blink of an eye.  We are to learn to be content with what we already have and to work for God, not ourselves.

No matter our financial state, we are to be generous with our money and help those in need.
