Wednesday, August 24, 2016      1 comments

August 24, 1 Kings 22:13-28 God's real prophet After all of the false prophets speak great victory to Ahab they bring in Micaiah. He is forewarned to speak what the rest have said yet stands on his ground and commits to speak only what Go... Read more

Tuesday, August 23, 2016      1 comments

August 23, 1 Kings 22:1-12 False prophets The first verse in this chapter deserves some consideration. For three years there was no war with Syria, it's as if to say that for three years nothing significant happened. That's most of our l... Read more

August 22, 1 Kings 21:17-29 Ahab is guilty Picture this, Ahab has taken the vineyard and he's walking through it. He's happy and smiling, he has a large cluster of grapes in one hand and he's eating them. Right now life is good. Then he... Read more

August 21, 1 Kings 21:1-16 Naboth's vinyard 3 Now we look at the third person in this story, Jezebel. Jezebel conspires for Naboth to die. This woman was truly evil, lusting only for personal gain, and pleasure. First she throws an insu... Read more

August 20, 1 Kings 21:1-16 Naboth's vinyard 2 Today we'll look at the second character in this story, Ahab. Ahab was a bad king, an evil and selfish man. We don't know enough of his history if he was always like this or if the office he... Read more

August 19, 1 Kings 21:1-16 The story of Ahab and Naboth's vineyard is probably the most fameous in the life of Ahab and Jezebel. It's really a complex story not only looking at what is right, but also looking at what is legal and what is p... Read more

August 18, 1 Kings 20:26-43 Just as the prophet foretold Ahab, Ben Hadad has indeed returned to do battle with Israel. We don't know the size of Israel's army, they are compared to two little flocks of goats and the Syrians filled the coun... Read more

August 17, 1 Kings 20:13-23 It's unfortunate that the scripture doesn't tell us how many soldiers Ben Hadad had with him, we know only that it was greater than 7000. From the context I would say significantly greater just in infantry witho... Read more

August 16, 1 Kings 20:1-12 Ben Hadad is king of Syria and he's brought kings or clan chiefs from 32 surrounding areas to besiege Samaria. It seems to be an overwhelming force against the city. As was custom when confronted with such a si... Read more

August 15, I Kings 19:19-21 I'd like to paint an image here but find it a bit difficult. While I remember as a small child actually seeing a neighbor plowing with two mules I doubt many people today know what it looks like. But let's try ... Read more

August 14, I Kings 19:9-18 Here we see Elijah climbing Mt Horeb, heís spent 40 days traveling, heís tired and dirty but the destination is here. Elijah finds a cave to camp in. We donít know the weather, maybe heís going in to get out of ... Read more

August 13, I Kings 19:1-8 Ahab has gone home to Jezebel and sheís not happy with Elijah at all. Unfortunately Elijah usually takes some ridicule here. Just yesterday he was so bold to face 450 false prophets but today this one woman has h... Read more

August 12, I Kings 18:41-46 Elijah dismisses Ahab, think about this a moment, Ahab is the king. Whatís going through Ahabís mind right now? Heís been an idolater, worshiping Baal yet for Godís purpose heís been spared. Elijah shows him n... Read more

August 11, I Kings 18:38-40 This could be the opening scene of a movie, the camera comes in across a range of mountains. It zooms in on one peak where we see a crowd of perhaps 1000 people. It's quiet, no-one is moving. The camera pans a... Read more

August 10, I Kings 18:30-40 Elijah has had enough, the prophets of Baal have spent most of the day and nothing has happened so now itís Godís turn. Elijah first calls the people then he repairs the altar of God that Jezebel tore down. Th... Read more
