Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | May 21, 2020 | THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON [ He Loved many Strange women ] – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love

Beloved, God did something very very important at the outset of creation. He separated light from darkness. See it yourself.

Gen 1:3 — Gen 1:4 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

The scriptures says let no man put asunder what God joined together. In the same token, what God had put asunder, let no man join together.

The blessed Holy Spirit amplifies what the Lord did from the outset, by saying severally in the scriptures that believers and you in particular must not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.

THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women. Of the nations which the Lord said Ye shall not go in to them

This you see in both old and new testaments. See some of them.

Deu 7:1 — Deu 7:4. When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

Isaiah 52:11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

2Co 6:14 — 2Co 6:18 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women. Of the nations which the Lord said Ye shall not go in to them

1Co 5:9 — 1Co 5:11 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

1Jo 2:15 — 1Jo 2:17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women. Of the nations which the Lord said Ye shall not go in to them

Beloved, it was very unfortunate, that after God had blessed and prospered king Solomon exceedingly, he disregarded this very important word of God.

1Ki 11:1 — 1Ki 11:2 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

Neh 13:26 Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.

You must be very very careful not to fall into this shameful act, because of its fearsome and dreadful consequences here and hereafter. .

You must not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers in friendship, marriage, worship, business , indoor or outdoor games etc

THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women. Of the nations which the Lord said Ye shall not go in to them

See some of the consequences of doing so.

God destroyed the first world with flood, because of unequal yoke in marriage. See it yourself.

Gen 6:1 — Gen 6:2 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Sons of God were lineage of righteous Seth and daughters of men were the lineage of wicked, cruel and murderous Cain.

Gen 6:5 — Gen 6:7 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

THE UNDOING OF SOLOMON – 1 kings 11:1-2 – But king Solomon loved many strange women. Of the nations which the Lord said Ye shall not go in to them

In the same token, God destroyed the business fortunes of Jehoshaphat a righteous king, who joined affinity with wicked king Ahazaiah of Samaria.

2Ch 20:35 — 2Ch 20:37 And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongeber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the Lord hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.

To avert this kind of fearsome judgment of God here and hereafter. Please determinedly avoid the sin of unequal yoke.

May God help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
