A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: What Led To Joash’s Destruction? Pt One [09/11/2017]

Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house. Proverbs 17:13. 2 Chr 24:17-27

Yesterday, we ended the Devotional with the above question and promised to deal with it today. Glory be to God Almighty for His grace to see today successfully. Amen. Now let’s deal with the process that led to his destruction after God had helped him tremendously.

1) Ungodly company. After the death of his mentor or spiritual father – Jehoiada, some evil princes that could not visit him when his mentor was alive visited him and corrupted him. And the Bible says, evil company corrupt good manner. 1 Cor 14:33. Keep away from friends that cannot give you good counsel.

2) He forsook God. Prior to what many some preachers say today that “once you are saved you are forever saved”, here we see that, when Joash forsook God, God in turn forsook him. David told Solomon his son, “if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him he will cast thee off forever”. 1 Chr 28:9b. Remember God did not just forsake Joash, He first sent him a warning, and when he refused to heed God’s warning, destruction came upon him. Before God – the all merciful permits destruction, He first sends warning signals to the fellow involved or nation. God is sending a warning to all sinners to repent of their sins to avoid the impending doom ahead. See Ezekiel 3:17-20, Pro 1:24-32. Tomorrow, we’ll look at the remaining three points by God’s grace.


* Oh Lord my God, take away anything that would cause my destruction in Jesus Mighty Name.
