God's Judgment Regarding King Jehoram of Israel

Chart of the Kings King Jehoram of Israel - Biography God's Judgment Regarding King Jehoram of Israel

God generously gave Israel's King Jehoram what many people of faith wish for: clear and compelling evidence of God's presence. This came in many forms: miracles of military victory, miraculous military intelligence, and miracles of healing and even of raising the dead.

Yet in spite of all this, Jehoram refused to trust God, and continued the sinful ways of his father, King Ahab.

2 Kings 3:1-3   Now Jehoram the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned twelve years. And he wrought evil in the sight of the LORD; but not like his father, and like his mother: for he put away the image of Baal that his father had made. Nevertheless he cleaved unto the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.
