WHAT IS TRUE REVIVAL?
PART 8: KING JOASH

John S. Torell

September 28, 2003

A TEACHING SERMON

In order for us to understand what a true revival is, we must begin by asking two questions?

1. Are you willing to be corrected? Proverbs 9:6-12
2. Are you hot or lukewarm?
Revelation 3:14-19

We are exhorted to be like minded with Christ - Philippians 2:1-5
Have you left your first love? Revelation 2:1-7
Do you really love Jesus?
John 14:15

King Solomon died a Satan worshiper - I Kings 11:1-9 
(Reigned for 40 years, son of David)
King Rehoboam allowed sodomites to operate at the temple in Jerusalem 
(Reigned for 17 years, grandson of David, third generation)
King Abijam was a wicked king, married 14 wives
(Reigned for 3 years, great grandson of David, fourth generation)
King Asa started with God, but ended his life as an evil man
(Reigned for 41 years, fifth generation after king David)
King Jehoshaphat started out great, and died as a fool
(Reigned for 25 years, sixth generation after king David)
King Jehoram was a vicked king from his first day in office
(Reigned for 8 years, sixth generation after king David)
King Ahaziah was a wicked king
(Reigned for one year, seventh generation after king David)


THE ROAD TO REVIVAL

King Joash - Eighth generation of king David (142 years after king David)

This king was the eighth king in Jerusalem after king David and he reigned for 40 years. He was saved from death as a one year old infant by the daughter of his grandfather, who was married to the high priest - II Chronicles 22:11-12

When Joash was seven years old, the high priest Jehoiada ousted the wicked queen Athaliah, and made the boy Joash king - II Chronicles 23:1-15

Jehoiada in reality became the ruler of Judah, and he made a covenant with the Lord and idolatry was rooted out - verses 16-21

The first mistake in Joash’s reign was when Jehoiada secured two wives for Joash - II Chronicles 24:1-3

Joash did not have A PURE HEART, when Jehoiada died, he joined hands with the politicians in Jerusalem. Until the death of the high priest, Joash publicly did what was right in the sight of God - verses 4-14

But the high places were not removed - II Kings 12:1-3

As soon as Jehoiada was dead, Joash’s true character came forth - II Chronicles 24:15-18

God responded by sending a prophecy to the king by the son of Jehoiada.

Joash responded by stoning the Jehoiada's son, whose father had been his mentor for many years. verses 19-22

The judgment of God fell upon Joash - verses 23-24

Joash was smitten by a disease, and then murdered in his own bed - verses 25-27

LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

  1. There will never be a revival without pure hearts - I John 1:4-10

  2. If we do not love the truth - God will turn us over to an evil spirit of delusion. II Thessalonians 2:8-13

To him that has an ear, let him hear!
