And he said to Jeroboam, “Take for yourself ten pieces, for thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: ‘Behold, I will tear the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon and will give ten tribes to you (but he shall have one tribe for the sake of My servant David, and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel), 1 Kings 11:31-32
You never know what effect your actions have on others.
Solomon’s heart turned away from God and the attacks from other nations began. Then the nation of Israel ended up split in two with ten Northern tribes, known as Israel, and two Southern tribes, known as Judah.
Both territories eventually end up taken captive by an invading nation.
We may consider Solomon a root cause but not the blame.
People have a free will to do good or evil. Even though a nation’s leaders live or declare one thing that does not mean the people need to.
Hitler was an evil man but his power was in the people that followed and obeyed his wicked orders.
You have the ability to turn away from evil by keeping your heart and mind set on God.
The moment you turn away from him a division develops as wide as the division of Israel.
Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. Matt 12:25
Stay solid with God!
