Take Up Your Cross April 7th 2015

Have you sold out to the devil?

But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. (1 Kings 21:25 KJV)

Have you sold out to the devil?

But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. (1 Kings 21:25 KJV)

“But there was none like unto Ahab…” Ahab was a wicked, cruel, idolatrous man.  What is worse is that he allowed himself to be led by the wickedness of his wife.

Whom Jezebel his wife stirred up…”  Jezebel was a wicked idolatrous wife who was out of her place with God and uncovered by her husband.  Jezebel desired to be the leader as her husband followed after her evil schemes.

When the order of leadership does not follow after the order God has set in place it is an open door for much wickedness and evil.  God has to be placed first place in life positioned above all other things.  God is to take the top most position at the head of the triangle in a godly marriage, and secondly God has placed the husband in godly leadership over his wife and the wife is to occupy a place under the covering of her husband in godly fashion according to His holy standards.

Earthly authority is also to fit under the helm of the leadership of God.  Many leaders are leading according to their own morality and standards rather than the holy standards of God.  Ahab and Jezebel were not under the authority of God in their personal life or in their God given positions upon this earth leading to pagan idolatry and every wicked and evil thing as Jezebel influenced Ahab’s weak leadership as He reigned as King.

Ahab and Jezebel had no personal relationship with God and served the god of this world’s evil intentions upon this earth.

There is an order to things upon this earth according to God’s blueprint for all mankind but mankind naturally desires to re-order or twist God’s holy edict in alignment with the evil plans of the god of this world.
