Summary: Ancient Israel had a fatal flaw. They rejected God’s kingly rule over them and demanded an earthly king instead, so they could be “like the nations around us.” What followed? Personal and national disaster. As the Scriptures say, these things in the Bible “were written for our learning” (Romans 15:4), to help us not to make the same catastrophic mistakes. My prayer is that this message will help you to choose the correct kingship over your life.
