Notes: November 19, 2008 – 2 Chronicles 11 & 12

A parallel account of the fall of Rehoboam

  • When Jereboam abolished the Levite priesthood in the North, the Levites moved south ( 11:13-16)
  • Rehoboam, like his father Solomon, had many wives and concubines (vs 18-21)
  • Like many others, when Rehoboam was established he forssok the law of the LORD, and he led others to do so also (12:1)
  • God sent Shemiah the prophet to warn the people about their sin; and the people repented. (vs 5-8).
  • Rehoboam did evil because he did not prepare his heart to seek the Lord ( 2 Chronicles 12:14 ). What preparations have you made to seek the Lord?
