And They Feared Not The Lord

By Rev Stanley Baker

2 Kings 17: 20—25

In our text this morning I would like for you to see what happened to Israel and Judah as they turned from the Lord and turned to sin.

In verse 29 we see that God rejects all the seed of Israel and Judah. Which means both Kingdoms of Israel and Judah.

This is the time where Israel had already been taken into captivity and Judah lasted another 113 years longer but still lost their way also and became slaves to Satan.

In verse we see that not only did Israel but Judah also slipped off into sin even deeper and had to be destroyed.

God could not deliver them into the hands of their enemies, or into the position of victory; whichever depended upon their disobedience or obedience.

Disobedience

The disposition to defy or resist authority : defiance, contempt, unruliness, rebelliousness,

They practice of not obeying : defiance, insubordination, rebellion, resistance, transgression, unruliness, violation,

Obedience

The quality or condition of being obedient. The act of obeying.

In other words they was not obeying God.

Without proper leadership all is lost.

One can be a religious leader, or one can be a Prophet.

One cannot be both.

The former seeks to appease the people; while the latter seeks to obey God.

Regrettably, we have now days far to many religious leaders in the world.

We have men in what is called mega Churches and leading in the wrong way which is where they have gotten away from Preaching the Cross and the Blood and all they are teaching is come on in and lets get that good felling going.

Well I’m here this morning to tell you that is not how it is going to be here.

I am going to Preach the word of God the way it is suppose to be Preached are we will close the doors and go home.

I will not let you slip off into captivity and I will not let Satan have his way in your life.

You and this house belongs to God.

Joshua 24:15

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

And you are my house you are my people and Satan cannot have you I will not let him.

Israel went to sin about 113 years before Judah slipped into sin as well and this part of the word was written at around 570 B.C.

And just like then today, if you to don’t keep God in your daily lives so you will not become a captive to sin.

You do not have to wait 113 years like Judah did, Satan is walking about seeking what he can destroy

Don’t let that be you.

These people that we are talking about lost their way and became the New Testament Samaritans.

They became intermixed with the Jews who returned from captivity; or the mixed breed as they were called.

The Jews in Jesus’ day would not have anything to do with them, because they were mixed with the world.

You cannot run with the world and serve God too.
