This article will tackle some time of the kings inside bible. So the Israelites take back your land of Canaan and so they want a king. Were they supposed to have a very king? Absolutely not! Along came Saul, then David, and then Solomon. They are the three top kings of all of Israel that everyone is familiar with, even a small child know which they were. Under these kind of three kings, all 12 tribes were reigned over. This is critical to recognize. All 12 tribes ended up called Israel.
That is until finally Solomon blew it. I Kings 11:31 “And he said to Jeroboam (servant of Solomon), “Take for yourself ten pieces, for thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘Behold, I am about to tear the kingdom from the hand of Solomon and will give you ten tribes.” This is the first indication of some thing incredibly prophetic that is going to hook up back to the good thing that was split. This is actually the moment. Do you remember that you have a cloth that was split and it was divided into 12 pieces but 10 visited the servant involving Solomon. It was suppose to go to his son.
Therefore 10 tribes, this is gonna be important so why does he split the idea? (verse 33) “because they have forsaken me and worshipped ashtoreth, the goddess of the sidonians… and have not walked in my ways to do what is right in my eyes and keep my statues and my judgments, as did his father david. you can easily relate to it as i am sure that at some point in your life, you as a son looked up to your dad on the ground most likely on your back and he said “son, if you want to live in my house, you are going to play by my rules”.
It is like that with our own relationships and it is the same way with Yahweh and he said “Sons if you are not going to play by My rules, you are out of My house”. Therefore he began to tear away the kingdom from Solomon, he gave 10 tribes to his servant Jeraboem.
What we have here is an incredible verse that claims that “because they worship Ashtoreth, now I never knew what and who Ashtoreth was as I was obviously a believer in my local congregation growing up. But what I learned as I looked at that, there are most kind of names Ashtarte in the Greeks, Ashtor and Ishtar, and in Language it is actually pronounced Easter time. Some of you probably shock to know that will but Easter is the bear breasted fertility goddess with the east, the sun god’s Bails wife which should change your complete thought process when you declare Happy Easter! It is not so happy coming from His perspective because we don’t even know what we are saying. Now you know the meaning of Easter.
I’m Jim Staley. It is my heart’s desire that you will be challenged and transformed through the materials and resources that are in this article. Whether its about Jewish holidays, the sabbath day, or the meaning of Easter, we want you to know the truth because the truth will only do one thing!
