Who Will Be a Leader?
Abijam was Asa's father not David. David was the linage from which Asa was born in.
America needs a leader who will do that which is right in the eyes of the Lord. Asa was one of a few Kings who followed the Lord. During his reign over the southern kingdom, the northern kingdom had 8 kings who all did evil in the sight of the Lord. Asa is Arabic and means to heal. Our land, America needs a good cleansing and healing.
If you want to read more about Asa’s reforms, they are described in detail in 2 Chron. 14:2-5; 15:1-18.
It is very interesting that Asa was a follower of God, since his father was an evil king, and his mother was an idolater. Notice that he was right in the eyes of the LORD. He was not perfect, but his heart was stayed on God.
1 Kings 15:12 "And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made."
The sodomites and Idols were in the times of Rehoboam (the first king of the southern kingdom) and continued in his father's reign. Those sodomites he took away, either by driving them out of the land, or by putting them to death according to the law of God (Lev. 20:13). Even as many of them as he had knowledge of, for some remained (see 1 Kings 22:46).
Solomon, Rehoboam and Abijam made and allowed Idol worship. They also not only allowed but endorsed homosexuality. Asa began to "clean house". He removed all the idols in the land and he took away the sodomites. All liberals and progressives have spit in the face of God by allowing, endorsing, and promoting idolatry and sodomy! But praise God, He will have the last Word!
Romans 1:26-28 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:" "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet." "And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;"
"Sodomites" are those who are practicing homosexuals and lesbians. This sin was so revolting to God that He gave them over to a reprobate mind. The liberal left has taken America to an all-time low. Praise God for Asa and praise God for Christians who stand loyal to God and His Word today. God Bless!
