As a christian Jeroboams motives were ok but the evil he commited was to use worldly wisdom and mix the two.
God does not need to celebrated in Jerusalem I will simply worship God my own way. So he set up an idol in Dan and Bersheba and his own priests.Jereboam legacy even affected Godly men like Jehu who once getting rid of Bal still did not get rid of the sins of a legacy by Jeroboam.
It is that muddy mixture of the world and the flesh and the devil that mix in with christian things such as secular music. I so want to be delivered from small sins that take me away from Jesus. We are going to Egypt and I miss Christian Fellowship. I cannot look at these people and not see myself in these people.
I so want to be like Davids legacy and to be a man after Gods own Heart whos legacy surpassed him because he had such a love of God and his word.
I so want to preach to the Lost.
David is mentioned time and time again I will not destroy Jerusalem because of my servant David or because of the legacy of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
Jeroboam set up priests or ministers and rejected God Levities. He rejected the temple and the place where Gods name dwelt in Jerusalem and tried to mix worldly ideas into preaching. I cannot look outside but at myself lord open my eyes to show me even the small area of comprimise and deliver me from my rebellious attitude. I so want to follow Jesus and know everything about him and the word of God, It is just a battle. Help me win the battle
2 Chronicles 6:42 KJV
