SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1954 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Judgment on Jeroboam ILLUSTRATED SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Fearing that the people of Isrflel would return to King Rehoboam's kingdom and be lost to him If they went to Jerusalem to sacrifice on feast days, Jeroboam, Israel's king, made two gold- fen calves of gold to be worshiped. King Jeroboam's sort became ill, so self so no one would recognize her. She Jeroboam told his-wife to disguise her- was to take the child to the prophet Ahijah. He would tell her if the boy would live or perish. Ahijah's eyes wet* dim, but the Lord told him of the coming of Jeroboam's Wife with the child, so when she came in to see him he told her Jhat because of her husband's Idolatry Abijah would die. Returning home Jeroboam's wife no sooner came 'to Tirzah when, at the very threshold of the palace, the child died. All Israel mourned him, as the Lord had told Ahijah. MEMORY VERSE-Deuteronomy 8:11. Judgment on Jeroboam HE SINNED AGAINST JEHOVAH AND WAS PUNISHED Che (Soldett Cesl Scripture—I Kings 12:25-33; 14:1-20 By NEWMAtf CAMPBELL Jeroboam, the "mighty man of valor", to whom Solomon had given a post of honor, and later drove into exile, is now king of Israel, ruler over the 10 tribes, as the prophet Ahijah foretold. Our lesson, today is the story of his life as the first king of the 10 tribes of the divided kingdom. Since the breaking out of World War I in 1914, we have seen many republics rise and kingdoms fall. Kings and dictators have resigned, abdicated, gone into exile and some have died far from home; others wore executed. There have been as many changes In these last 40 years that we sometimes are puzzled to remember what nations are free and which are under the domination of stronger governments. Jeroboam had been blessed by Jehovah. He had been made a ruler, accepted by his people, and might have made his kingdom a happy, God-fearing nation. Did he? We shall.learn how he sinned and displeased God by his evil doing. He first built two new places of worship, one Schechem on •much, as I exalted thee from among the people and made thee prince over My people Israel, and rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it to thee; and yet thou hast not beeji as My servant David, who keot My commandments ... but hast done evil above all that, were before thee; for thou hast gone and made thee other gods, and molten Images to provoke me to anger, and hast cast Me behind thy back: "Therefore, behold I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam end will cut off from Jeroboam, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam," and the Lord uttered dreadful threats upon Jeroboam and upon his people. Then Ahijah said that the woman should go home, and "when thy feet enter into the city, the child shall die." "And all Israel shall mourn for him, and bury him; for he only of Jeroboam shall come to the grave, because in him there is found some good thing toward the Lord God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam." What a terrible thing it was that out of all the people of Is- MEMORY VERSE "Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping His commandments."—Deuteronomy 8:11. Mount Ephraim, and then Penuel. Then Jeroboam thought to himself, "If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their Lord, even Rehoboam, king of Judah, and they shall kill me." Jeroboam was a selfish man, you see, concerned only with" his own security, or what he thought was that. He had seen what happened to Solomon when he foresook the Lord and worshiped idols. He could have established these places for the worship of the Lord, but he had not learned his lesson. Jeroboam made two calves of gold, putting one in Bethel and other in Dan; he made priests of the lowest of the people, and he ordained a feast in the eighth month and offered sacrifices to the golden calves he had made. Then his young son, Abijah, fell sick. Jeroboam told his wife to disguise herself so that no one would recognize her, and to go to the home of Ahijah, the prophet who had propheised the division of the kingdom, and 4o As Ahijah had said, when she out what was to become of him. However, the Lord, acquainted Ahijah that Jeroboam's wife was on-her way to him, in disguise, so that when she entered Ahijah'• house he said to her: "Come in thou wife of Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself to be another? For I am sent to thee with heavy tidings. "Go tell Jeroboam, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, foras- rael for which the Lord had done so much, the only one He could find'that had "some good thing" toward his Maker was this innocent sick chfld. Ahijah further told Jeroboam's wife that the Lord, would smite Israel and cut off the house of Jeroboam because he had 'sinned and caused his people to.sin. How desolate must Jeroboam's wife have'been as she went homeward with the prophet's dreadful words ringing in her ears, take the child to him to find reached Tirzah, and came to the threshold of the palace door, her child died. "And they buried him and all Israel mourned for him, according to the word of the Lord, which He spake by the hand of His servant Ahijah the prohet." Jeroboam reigned "two and twenty years," according to Scripture, and then he died and his son, Nadeb, reigned in his stead. Thus ended the life of this self-seeking man who not on ly turned from the worship of Jehovah who had established him in his kingdom, but led his people to do likewise, incurring the wrath of the Lord. All of us, from the youngest to the oldest, have our "spheres of influence". We cannot lead a whole people to do wrong by our sinning, but we can set an example to all those with whom We come in contact, and help them to take the right path and be true to God and trust in His goodness .by worshiping only Him.
