2 Chronicles 18-20

Posted by Matt Postiff October 1, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Bible Texts 

Judah's King Jehoshaphat had a tough time learning a key lesson: do not get cozy with wicked people. After he allied himself with Ahab and helped Ahab in battle to recover Ramoth Gilead from the Arameans, God sent a message to him through Jehu:

Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Therefore the wrath of the LORD is upon you.

This was about 863 B.C. About 10 years later, Jehosphaphat allied himself with Ahaziah of Israel, another wicked king. This time, Eliezer prophesied against Jehoshaphat and said:

Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the LORD has destroyed your works."

This is a good lesson for us--do not tie yourself up in ventures with unbelievers. It will cost you. Remind yourself of 2 Corinthians 6:14.
