Old Testament: 2Ki 15.26
To read the Bible in a year, read Second Kings 15–17 on May 16, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023
By Don Ruhl
We do not hear much about Pekahiah, who was one of the kings of Israel. If you do not read the whole Bible, chances are you will not run across his name.
He only reigned for two years, and like all the other kings of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, he did what was evil in the Lord’s eyes. We know that he adhered to the sins of Jeroboam, but someone back then did keep a record of his reign: “Now the rest of the acts of Pekahiah, and all that he did, indeed they are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel” (2 Kings 15.26).
Also, we know that the Lord recorded the king’s entire life history, which the Lord will bring up at the Judgment, even as he will do for all of us.
This is why we must seek the Lord’s forgiveness right now, so that he will not remember our sins against us when the Judgment arrives.
