Revivals in 1 & 2 Kings

The True God, the True King and True Obedience

David Gooding

If Jesus is God’s Son—if Jesus is the Creator incarnate, if he owns everything there is in time and eternity, if he is the author of all good, if he is the Son and heir of the Father himself—we should be fools not to serve him.

Synopsis

David Gooding considers the issues at stake in these revivals in first and second Kings.

With the revival in Israel led by Elijah, the issue was: who is the true God? Jehovah or Baal?
Demonstrating to them that Jehovah was indeed the true God, Elijah led his people back to whole–hearted service of Jehovah.

With the revival led by Jehoiada, the issue was: who is the true king? In that revival the imposter Athaliah’s treason was exposed. The people of Judah discovered what loyalty to the true king would mean; in particular, by way of repairing the breaches in the house of the Lord.
Josiah early on set about having another kind of revival in Judah. He told the priests to collect money and once more repair the breaches in the house of the Lord.

In the course of their repair work they found a book. It was part of the word of God. The issue in that revival was: were they going to obey the word of God?

(The issue the people of Judah had to face in the revival led by Hezekiah was: were they going to stand for God’s truth? —the recording for that meeting is missing.)
