And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, as his fathers had done: he departed not from the sins of Image result for THE SINS OF THE PARENTSJeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin. 18 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not all his days from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin. 24 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin. 28 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin. 2 Kings 15:9,18,24,28

Image result for THE SINS OF THE PARENTSThis chapter anticipates the final overthrow of the kingdom of the tribes. It describes the corruption and disorganization of the people which made them the easy prey of Assyria. One puppet king after another was set upon the throne to fall after a brief space of rule, and four times over it is said that they followed in the steps of Jeroboam, “who made Israel to sin.” The seed sown two hundred years before had, at last, come to maturity, issuing in the ruin of the nation. ‘What a comment on the inspired words, “Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

Twelve times in the story of the kingdom of Israel we are told that Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, made Israel to sin. The institution of the calves on his part seemed to be a piece of political wisdom, but it was an infraction of the Divine law, and what is morally wrong can never be politically right. The house cannot stand unless the foundation can bear the test of the Divine plummet. The kingdom of Israel fell, to prove to all after time that the disregard of God’s law is a foundation of sand, which can never resist the test of time.

Why is Jeroboam so frequently called “the son of Nebat”? Why should the father be forever pilloried with the son, Image result for THE SINS OF THE PARENTSexcept that he was in some way responsible for, and implicated in, his sins? There was a time when perhaps Nebat might have restrained the growing boy or led him to the true worship of God, or perhaps his parental influence and example were deadly in their effect. How important that parents should leave no stone unturned to promote the godliness of their children, bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Look no further than your Capital where morality is rotten to the core and it is wrong. Why is all this happening to a nation that God kept under His wings as a hen does her brood? The time has come when all this nation who forget who their God is will be exposed and the Scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes. God bless us
