Old Testament Overview - TWO DIVIDED KINGS THAT DIVIDED GOD'S KINGDOM (I KINGS)

Solomon:

1. His heart for God:
...for God's wisdom (3:5-15, 4:29-34)
...for God's glory (6:1-38, 8:22-66)
...for God's grace (8:28-53)

2. His heart for the world:
...for worldly pleasures and possessions (4:26, 10:26-29, 11:1-3; Neh. 13:26)
...for worldly gods (11:4-8)

God's judgment on Solomon:  "The Lord became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the Lord, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice. Although he had forbidden Solomon to follow other gods, Solomon did not keep the Lord’s command. So the Lord said to Solomon, 'Since this is your attitude and you have not kept my covenant and my decrees, which I commanded you, I will most certainly tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your subordinates. Nevertheless, for the sake of David your father, I will not do it during your lifetime. I will tear it out of the hand of your son. Yet I will not tear the whole kingdom from him, but will give him one tribe for the sake of David my servant and for the sake of Jerusalem, which I have chosen.'" (1 Kings 11:9-13)

Rehoboam:

1. His heart for God:
...for God's sovereignty (12:20-24)
...for God's mercy (II Chron. 12:5-8, 12)

2. His heart for the world:
...for the world's wisdom (12:1-19) (Prov. 12:12, 18:2, 13)
...for the world's pleasures (II Chron. 11:18-21)
...for the world's gods (14:22-24)

God's judgment on Rehoboam:  "In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem. He carried off the treasures of the temple of the Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made." (1 Kings 14:25-26) See also II Chron. 12:1-4, 14
