And He Departed With No One’s Regret

Posted: July 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Jehoram, King of Judah….has to have the distinction of being one of the worst Kings of Judah and was punished by God accordingly.  The point:  don’t be a Jehoram!!

And after all this the Lord struck him in his bowels with an incurable disease.  In the course of time, at the end of two years, his bowels came out because of the disease, and he died in great agony.  His people made no fire in his honor, like the fires made for his fathers.  He was thirty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.  And he departed with no one’s regret.  They buried him in the city of David, but not in the tombs of the kings. 2 Chronicles 21:18-20

I’ve done some funerals in my time where based on the expression and countenance of those few in the audience, it was clear no one seemed to regret the departure.
