Before Israel ever had a king, God set the standards and He warned what would happen if His people did not listen. In Deuteronomy 17, kings were warned not to multiply wives so that their hearts would not turn away from God. Solomon did not listen and the consequences were disastrous. His heart turned away from God and his heart was no longer totally devoted to the Lord his God as the heart of David his father had been. The Lord tore the kingdom in two, giving ten tribes into the hands of Jeroboam, Solomon’s servant. Solomon’s death marked the end of an era (the united monarchy). The stage for Israel’s division and moral decline was set. Jeroboam led Israel (the Northern Kingdom) into sin and idolatry. Eventually Judah (the Southern Kingdom) followed her sister’s ways. God could not remain silent. He raised up prophets to warn His people of the dire consequences of abandoning His ways.

God Searches for a Heart Fully His – Neither Solomon, his son Rehoboam, nor his son Abijam followed God fully, nor did Jeroboam in Israel. Their hearts were divided. Would God ever find anyone to serve Him like David? Would He ever find one whose heart was fully His? God says that we are to love Him with all of our heart.

Passing the Mantle – Could there be a man or woman like Elijah in our time – someone with his mantle who would boldly believe God and proclaim His Word. This study will help you experience the unchanging power of God in changing times!

Spare Your People, Lord – Obadiah and Joel prophesied about the judgment of all the nations in the coming day of the Lord. Edom was singled out by Obadiah because of how they treated Israel. In these last days, as we wait for the Day of the Lord, we should remember that God is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He calls people to return to Him with their whole heart.

Where Are You Going? Jonah: Can a mere man hide from the presence of an all-knowing, all-powerful God? God used a reluctant prophet to tell an evil city of His compassion for them. God has called us to deliver His message of redemption and the truth of His Word. When you encounter someone you don’t love, will you run, get angry, or comply? Will it take a calamity to get our attention? What are we to do? And what if we don’t? The book of Jonah has answers. It’s much more than a whale of a story!

God’s message to the kings and nations of old is no less relevant today. We pray this study will illumine your heart and encourage you toward a life of true worship.
