Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Kings 9)
Text: 2 Kings 9:7
“You shall strike down the house of Ahab your master, that I may avenge the blood of My servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel.”
“Divine Judgment,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God’s Holiness Requires God’s Divine Judgement For evil.
Our Commander Jesus Christ took God’s Divine Judgement for our sin upon Himself on the Cross, so that you and I could become “the righteousness of God In Him.” (2Corin.5:21).
God’s Divine Judgment is not always fully executed immediately; because He is “longsuffering, not willing that Any should perish but that all would come to repentance:
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”(2Pet.3:9).
God gave Jehoram and Ahaziah many years to repent but they refused and hardened their heart against God. Now, it is God’s Time for His Divine Judgment to be fully executed, and Jehu has been chosen as His Instrument of Judgment.
Jehu took this assignment for the honor of God, as His executor of God’s Divine Judgement - in the very place where Naboth was murdered by Jezebel and Ahab!
Jehu remembered Ahab and Jezebel’s murder of Naboth, and reminded Bidkar, his captain, of this event (v.25).
Oh how we see the passion of Jehu executing his calling to destroy the House of Ahab; and honor Almighty God and His Command!
Listen up Warrior! We too have been anointed, as Jehu was; to Destroy the house of the devil!
Our Commander Jesus Christ came into the world to Destroy the Works of the devil (1John 3:8) - and He has anointed you and I as His Warrior to Continue His Work of Destroying The Works of the devil, in our life as well as the lives of others! We do this by Proclaiming and Living The Life-Changing Gospel of Jesus Christ EVERY DAY!
Oh Hallelujah! Let us pursue this work of destruction, conquering evil with good, with the “furious” passion Jehu had!
Yes, we Love the Soul of the sinner, and we Hate the sin that holds them in bondage.
Listen up Warrior! You and I are Called To Destroy The Works of the devil - and you and I will do this In The Love and Power of Holy Spirit our Helper! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
