Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

2 Kings 9(ESV)

Then Elisha the prophet called one of the sons of the prophets and said to him, “Tie up your garments, and take this flask of oil in your hand, and go to Ramoth-gilead. And when you arrive, look there for Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat, son of Nimshi. And go in and have him rise from among his fellows, and lead him to an inner chamber. Then take the flask of oil and pour it on his head and say, ‘Thus says the Lord, I anoint you king over Israel.’ Then open the door and flee; do not linger.”....Continue Reading

  1. 36When they came back and told him, he said, “This is the word of the Lord, which he spoke by his servant Elijah the Tishbite: ‘In the territory of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel, 37and the corpse of Jezebel shall be as dung on the face of the field in the territory of Jezreel, so that no one can say, This is Jezebel.'”

  2. You know the movies where the villain finally dies and the audience applauds? Well that is what would happen in this chapter and the next. The villains of Israel, the wicked king Ahab and His even more wicked queen Jezebel, the promoters of false worship, the killer of the prophets, die. And Jezebel here dies in just the fashion that it was prophesied by Elijah, which should come as no surprise. And it is interesting how all this happens. God raises up a new leader, anoints a new king who will turn the table on the wicked monarchs. Jehu is a son of Jehoshaphat. So his upbringing at least would include reference for God. And here he is used as the vehicle to accomplish God’s will in bringing the well deserved judgement on Ahab and Jezebel. Hooray!!!!
