The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Friday 21st June 2024 Is “King Jehoram”

Read: 2 Chronicles 21:1-9
[1]Now Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.
[2]And he had brethren the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, and Shephatiah: all these were the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.
[3]And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of gold, and of precious things, with fenced cities in Judah: but the kingdom gave he to Jehoram; because he was the firstborn.
[4]Now when Jehoram was risen up to the kingdom of his father, he strengthened himself, and slew all his brethren with the sword, and divers also of the princes of Israel.
[5]Jehoram was thirty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
[6]And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab to wife: and he wrought that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD.
[7]Howbeit the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, and as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.
[8]In his days the Edomites revolted from under the dominion of Judah, and made themselves a king.
[9]Then Jehoram went forth with his princes, and all his chariots with him: and he rose up by night, and smote the Edomites which compassed him in, and the captains of the chariots.

Memorise: 1 Corinthians 15:33

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

Part of the undoing of King Jehoram was that he got married to the daughter of the ungodly couple, King Ahab and Jezebel (2 Chronicles 21:6). This evil association was probably what made him kill all his brothers and eventually lead Judah astray by encouraging the worship of idols that his father had eradicated years back.

Jehoram’s marriage probably played a major role in his own corruption and that of Judah. My dear child, I implore you to be careful of those you become friends with so that your good manners will not be corrupted. Make friends with people who will encourage you to serve God wholeheartedly and not those who will encourage you to sin or waste your destiny.

I also want you to commit your marriage into God’s hands. Although you are still young, praying this kind of prayer can never be a waste. Pray that you will not marry the wrong person when the time comes. Ask God to preserve you for a godly spouse with whom you will serve Him together.

Wrong associations will take you far from God.

2 Kings 1:1-2:25 Acts 13:42-14:7

1. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught
Homes where the Master’s will is sought
Homes crowned with beauty Thy love has wrought
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes

2. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the father is true and strong
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong
Homes that are joyous with love and song
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes

3. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the mother, in queenly quest
Strives to show others Thy way is best
Homes where the Lord is an honoured guest
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes

4. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so
Homes where the altar fires burn and glow
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes!
