1 & 2 Kings (Part 2): Hear the word of the prophets, O Kings! (1 Kings 17-22)

Sunday, 12 July 2020 // God's Story: Old Testament


“Hear the word of the prophets, O Kings!”

We've all refused to listen to advice and ignored reality. Now imagine generation after generation of such leaders. Everyone knows this isn’t going to end well… and such was the case for Israel. After Solomon’s death, Israel was embroiled in a civil war and subsequently ruled by generations of foolish kings who had forsaken the word of God.

Just as God’s prophets warned, going against God’s laws brought about disastrous consequences. Yet, God works through the reigns of Israel's foolish kings, and the divinations of the prophets are part of God’s great plan. What will happen next?

This sermon was preached by our pastor-in-training, Jerome Leng, as part of our sermon series on biblical theology, "God's Story".

Please note that all the audio for our sermons is recorded live and only very lightly edited. From time to time you will hear the preacher making off-the-sermon comments or silences that come with this context. These include: the preacher making a wordless gesture or action to the audience, dropping and picking up something, a blooper that disrupts the flow of the sermon, and even a power outage! Thank you for understanding. We are working on uploading video for all the sermons that work better on video. Keep growing under the Word; may God bless His church.
