The Golden Age of Israel~wonderful while it lasted, but upon Solomon's death, that period came to an end.    Rehoboam is now the king of the two tribes comprising Israel, and Jeroboam, who led the rebellion against Rehoboam's heavy handedness, is king of the 10 tribes south of Israel and known as Judah.  Rehoboam, building on his father Solomon's tradition, decides to bulk up fortifications and set aside stores for possible sieges. Although he started poorly by listening to the young men rather than the wiser older advisors of his father, he did try to strengthen and take care of Israel, but as he aged and gathered power, he slipped farther and farther from the honest worship of Jehovah.  Jeroboam used religion for political reasons and did what he could to keep his people home and satisfied with a modified form of worship.  It was not what the Lord ordained,  and there are consequences...Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
