What made a King “good” or “bad”?

The biblical writers were not as interested in a kings abilities as an administrator as they were in the king’s desire to follow God’s commands. Kings that followed God’s law and those who outlawed the altars to foreign gods, the high places, and idol worship were designated as good. Those who did not, were evil. The Bible uses the phrase “He did evil in the eyes (or sight) of the Lord, “to evaluate the Kings reign. In secular history, one of the important kings was Omri of Israel, who conquered the Moabites; but in the bible this evil king’s victories go unmentioned.

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who gave you a soul and caused the making of the brain and the heart can successfully guide you to a profitable end.


 Always keep Jesus in your heart and on your mind.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.


Prayer:   Father in heaven, I praise Your for Your Son and the Holy Spirit. I praise Your for Your grace in sending to us Your Word. I pray that the dates for the individual kings are very close to the times they served. I can only offer the sequence of the Kings and pray that the dates fall closely to the time the kings served. Please bless all those who use this chart for they too are seeking Your righteous truth and understanding.

May God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights for eternity. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His gory through the power of the Holy Spirit,
