TOPIC: King Zedekiah (Open Heaven for Teens 27 June 2024)

MEMORISE: The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15

 

READ: 2 Chronicles 36:11-13

11 Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.

12 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the LORD.

13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 10:32-12:21 Acts 18:1-22

MESSAGE

Zedekiah was 21 years old when he became king. This means that he must have only been about ten years old when his father, Josiah, died. The Bible tells us in 2 Kings 24:17 and Jeremiah 37:1 that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon made Zedekiah the next king of Judah. Zedekiah ruled for 11 years but continued in all the evil deeds of his brothers and nephew, Jehoiachin.

Although Zedekiah missed the throne three times when two of his brothers and his nephew were crowned, he finally received stewardship of the kingdom. Zedekiah had the benefit of having firsthand information about the mistakes of his brothers and nephew. He also heard a direct message from God through Jeremiah, yet he did not submit to the Lord. As a result, he lost his sons, sight, freedom, and, eventually, the throne.

I want you to reflect soberly today: in which area of your life have you been corrected several times, yet you remain obstinate? Has the Holy Spirit convicted you of any attitude and yet you refuse to change? Learn from Zedekiah’s life and repent today. Make a decision to be a better person from now on.

KEY POINT
Learn from the mistakes of others and heed godly counsel

HYMN 13 – Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior

1 Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

2 Let me at a throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

3 Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

4 Thou the Spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in heav’n but Thee?
