Jeroboam: The great downfall of Jeroboam-- He not only sinned but taught others to sin… He turned from God’s promise and tricked the people into idolatry to insure his kingship.
Of the first four: 3 out of four lost there bet on their legacy. All stumbled badly in their walk with God But All had personal, great experiences with God In God’s value system… It is not your obedience-performance average that has God’s attention. It has something to do with repentance, contriteness, and respect for the word. --Brokenness And Trust A man’s greatness is not found in His experience but his trust and knowing God
