DCLM Daily Manna 20 July 2021 Today Outline:

Athaliah stands shamefully as a wicked counsellor amongst the women folk of all times. To think of it that the likes of Jezebel and her daughter Athaliah at different times wreaked havoc in the kingdom of Israel and Judah show that the devil is capable of perpetrating any kind of evil with those who yield themselves instruments to him. Our passage reveals an astonishing wickedness carried out by a grandmother against her grandsons.

It is unimaginable that Athaliah would lay hands on all her grandsons and slaughter them just to perpetuate herself on the throne of Judah. Wickedness has no limits except the one God sets. Athaliah was instrumental to the death of her son Ahaziah whom she counselled wickedly against the Lord God. And of course, the Lord arranged his untimely execution and the cleansing of that family when the lineage of Ahab and Jezebel were stamped out of Israel.

DCLM Daily Manna for Tuesday 20 July 2021

Rebellion against God and idolatry are intricate web which entangles their victims, dragging them disastrously to damnation. Ahab listened to the wicked counsels of his wife (Jezebel) and dragged the nation of Israel into Baal worship. King Jehoshaphat parleyed with Ahab in business and military alliance and his son Jehoram fell in love and married Ahab’s daughter – Athaliah. It is saddening that a righteous man like Jehoshaphat and his family would come under divine chastisement because of unequal yoke in marriage. How believers need to avoid unequal yoke!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t be a miserable counsellor.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 1-4
