Reading through the Psalms of Asaph the seer, music leader, writer and poet, he passed down his skills to many generations, inspiring an immeasurable amount of people.
What did Elijah do when his job was finished with Ahab?
The Almighty, the Creator of the ends of the earth could have sent down fire to consume the whole lot of them and scorch every last hair on their heads. But that is not why he sent Elijah. He sent Elijah to get the attention of the people, to save them from the hand of Ahab and from living a life devoted to sin.
And so all Israel will
be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob…’”.
I was reading recently in the book of I and II Kings and had an epiphany. Toward the end of chapter 10 in the second book, I came to an abrupt halt when I read about the slaughter of the 70 sons of Ahab, his confidants, friends and even acquaintances. Anyone remotely related to him and any connection to the worship of Baal was annihilated by Jehu and his men.
