2 Kings 22

Verses 1-20

2 Kings 22:1 to 2 Kings 23:30 The Reign of Josiah Over Judah (640-609 B.C.) 2 Kings 22:1 to 2 Kings 23:30 records the account of the reign of Josiah over Judah. He was one of the few good kings who reigned over this nation.

2 Kings 22:7 Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.

2 Kings 22:7 Comments - In 1993 I was attending Word of Faith Family Church, Dallas, Texas, pastored by Robert Tilton. In that year, the program 20/20, hosted by Diane Sawyer, aired a documentary on three large churches in Dallas, one being Word of Faith, another was Church on the Rock in Rockwall, Texas, pastored by Larry Lee, and the third church was The Eagle's Nest. In this documentary, accusations were made about the misuse of large amounts of financial contributions to these churches. This program devastated these churches and forever changed the impact of these three ministers. Later, at home in Panama City, Florida, I was talking with a pastor about this incident. He told me that the Lord quickened this verse in 2 Kings to him as a truth that when someone does not deal faithfully with the Lord's money, then a reckoning will be made.
