One of the leading causes of Divorce in America is Finances. Usually couples come together with intentions of making it in marriage and without warning, at times, money becomes a problem and in a lot of cases-leads to a divorce. But now the enemy is even forbidding the thought of marriage because of MONEY. If your single, engaged, married, newly married, or even courting (dating), DON’T FALL FOR THIS. Where there is money, defiance is knocking at the door!
1 Kings 12:2-4
Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had gathered to make him king. 2 When Jeroboam son of Nebat heard of this, he returned from Egypt, for he had fled to Egypt to escape from King Solomon. 3 The leaders of Israel summoned him, and Jeroboam and the whole assembly of Israel went to speak with Rehoboam. 4 “Your father was a hard master,” they said. “Lighten the harsh labor demands and heavy taxes that your father imposed on us. Then we will be your loyal subjects.”
1 Kings 12:16-17
16 When all Israel realized that the king had refused to listen to them, they responded,
“Down with the dynasty of David!
We have no interest in the son of Jesse.
Back to your homes, O Israel!
Look out for your own house, O David!”
So the people of Israel returned home. 17 But Rehoboam continued to rule over the Israelites who lived in the towns of Judah.
