Wait, why did MY water get cut off?

Applications from 1 Kings 

1 Kings 17:1-7

If you read the last post, Wow! Things are really going great…, please skip ahead to the application.

The Story:

Here we are introduced to Elijah the prophet. Elijah is very common now, but at this point in history he was an unknown from nowhere. No one knew Elijah. He just comes into the story unannounced. His town, Tishbe, can no longer be found with certainty. From his name we deduce that he is a man of God: Yahweh is my God. As we read of his life it will become evident that he hates the worship of Baal just as much as Jezebel loves it.

When he enters the storyline he is immediately speaking to King Ahab saying that until he says so, there will be no rain. Elijah is working on God’s behalf in response to the embracing of Baal worship. From here God sends him to the Brook Cherith where ravens deliver bread and meat to him. He gets a delivery each morning and evening. He drinks from the brook until it dries up from the lack of rain. So, in this manner, we are introduced to Elijah.

The Application:

The brook dried up because there had been no rain. I imagine Elijah’s thoughts were something like: I shut off the water for the Baal worshippers. God, I am not supposed to go without…I am serving you. Ok, let us see…what have I done wrong so God is punishing me?

We can quickly go from Serving God and loving it…to Wow! Things are really going great…to Wait, why did MY water get turned off. This is not a time for Lord, why?…or Lord, what did I do? Rather, this is the time for: Ok Lord, where now? What now? You’ve given me a nice break…but now the water is off. Where can I go for you now? What can I do for you now?

After being used of God we should never think we have achieved. Each task for God is just training for the harder task He has next.

Conclusion:

We will see Elijah do greater and greater things as we follow his life…each time he is ready for the next. Never feeling a sense of accomplishment in what he has done.

The Application:

God speaks to Elijah and tells him to get away from Ahab. Can you imagine how Ahab would have hassled him if he would have stayed around. But, God didn’t just tell him to get away with no direction. God tells him exactly where to go.

Notice the provision God has for him:
1. God shows him where to hide to avoid Ahab.
2. God has birds deliver food to him twice a day.
3. God allows him to be in a place with water during a time of drought!

Wow! Things are really going great for Elijah. He has been directly used by God. He is being directly provided for by God.

Times like these are easy to enjoy. God is good, life is good, etc.

Serving God and Loving It

Applications from 1 Kings 

1 Kings 17:1-7

The Story:

Here we are introduced to Elijah the prophet. Elijah is very common now, but at this point in history he was an unknown from nowhere. No one knew Elijah. He just comes into the story unannounced. His town, Tishbe, can no longer be found with certainty. From his name we deduce that he is a man of God: Yahweh is my God. As we read of his life it will become evident that he hates the worship of Baal just as much as Jezebel loves it.

He gets a delivery each morning and evening. He drinks from the brook until it dries up from the lack of rain. So, in this manner, we are introduced to Elijah.

The Application:

In verse one we read of Elijah being mightily used of God. God allows him to go in, rebuke the Baal worship, bring glory to the living God, and get away without harm. Things just couldn’t be better for Elijah right now.

Elijah cannot stand the worship of Baal. He hates the worship of Baal like I hate a diet. He is able to go before Ahab and preach that God is the living God. He is able to tell the people that to prove his point God will not allow rain again until he commands.

Elijah is serving God and loving it. He is on a spiritual mountain.

It feels good to be used of God. You share the Word with someone and are able to watch their life be transformed. You teach a truth to someone and see them apply it to their life. You sit back sometimes and do nothing while Almighty God works in a situation where you would have just made a mess.

There is nothing like serving and being used of God.

A light thing to murder children…

Tags

, , , , ,

Applications from 1 Kings 

1 Kings 16:29-34

If you read the last post, A light thing to make a grove, please skip ahead to the application.

The Story:

Ahab becomes the king of Israel and reigns for 22 years. We will learn more of Ahab in the chapters to come, but from this brief summary here we get the picture: He did evil in the sight of the Lord more than all before him. It became normal for Ahab to walk in the sins of Jeroboam. He married Jezebel. He served and worshipped Baal. He built a house unto Baal and an altar for him. He built a grove in the temple: An image of Asherah (mother-earth) the fertility goddess. He did more to provoke God than all the kings before him.

The writer is sure to point out to us 3 times in the first 2 verses about
Ahab, who his father was. The name Ahab is literally translated “brother of the father”. The purpose of this would be to say “resembling the father”. You and I would just say “like father, like son.” One author wrote of Ahab, “He had his Father’s lies.”

The chapter concludes with a verse telling of the rebuilding of Jericho
which Joshua had said to never rebuild.

The Application:

Evidently Ahab commissioned Hiel to rebuild Jericho. The price of this was two of Hiel’s children. Joshua had commanded them not to rebuild.

Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Ahab needed Jericho…apparently…so it became a light thing to
murder children.

Conclusion: There is a horrible price paid when it becomes a light thing to sin.

The Application:

What we read of here is a graven image of Asherah. Asherah was a pagan fertility goddess. She was known as Earth Mother. Mother nature? By setting her up in his kingdom, Ahab was relying upon her power to bless their land with children.

God is our creator and He blesses us with children. It becomes a light thing to set up an idol unto a false god to give credit for the health of their children.

The chapter concludes with a verse telling of the rebuilding of Jericho
which Joshua had said to never rebuild.

The Application:

On the surface it is evident that this marriage is not good. Jezebel is an outsider. Israel was to only marry other Jews.

Looking further we find Jezebel to be more of a problem. She was the daughter of Ethbaal, the king of the Sidonians. From one of Josephus’s records we learn that at the age of thirty-six he murdered his brother to take over the kingdom of Tyre and Sidon where he reigned for thirty-two years. His name means “with Baal.” Ethbaal’s god was Baal–Melkart. The name Baal means “lord” or “owner”. Her name refers to Baal as, “Where is Baal?”

Knowing this, why marry her? One author writes, “Had a secular historian been recording these events, the marriage of Ahab and Jezebel would likely have been applauded as a prudent political move. Both Phoenicia & Israel were being threatened by Syria, and the marriage gave Ahab a powerful military ally at a crucial time.” So Ahab, like Solomon, makes a move that fits politically but not spiritually.

Thus, it becomes a light thing to marry Jezebel.

  • First, this is just like papa-Solomon did and it worked for him. Not everything our forefathers did was right. Just because it is the “old-way” or the way “grand-daddy” did it doesn’t always mean we should follow suit. These things do it make it easier on our consciences as they allow our actions to be culturally accepted.
  • Second, this is for the greater good. It may not be right…right now…but one day you will see this was right and good for all of us. NO! Right is right and wrong is wrong. Ahab was not to marry Jezebel. Mainly, because God had commanded that they marry Jews. Also, because she served and promoted other gods. Who cares if it stopped a war…if it runs off God? God won their battles for them anyway.

But, it had become a light thing to sin…thus he married Jezebel.

All that really matters in life

Tags

, , , , ,

Applications from 1 Kings 

1 KINGS 15:25-16:28

If you haven’t read part one of this post, you can find it here: How did things get SO BAD?

The remainder of chapter 15 and most of chapter 16 simply records the repeating pattern of wicked Kings in Israel.
These were all during Asa’s reign in Judah:

  • Nadab reigned for 2 years (15:25-31)
  • Ba-asha reigned for 24 years (15:32-16:7)
  • Elah reigned for 2 years (16:8-14)
  • Zimri reigned for 7 days (16:15-20)
  • Tibni reigned (16:21)
  • Omri reigned 12 years (16:22-28)
  • Ahab reigns after Omri for the next 22 years (16:28-34)

Each of these kings is said to have done worse than the king before them in the eyes of the Lord. All going back to Jeroboam. As you may remember, Jeroboam didn’t do anything “too” bad, but each generation behind him embraced false religion and moved a step further away from God. Before we get to Ahab, Israel is left with it’s very own civil war and the nation is in a state of chaos. All of this seemingly stemming from Jeroboam’s introduction of a little bit a sin.

The Application:

The one thing that really matters in life is your relationship with
God. Here in 1 Kings, one certain point of the book is, “Our relationship with God is all that really matters in life.”

All of the impressive accomplishments of Israel’s kings seem to
boil down to the one sentence conclusions of their life’s: Military victories, building projects, international fame….all boiled down to: He did that which was right in the sight of God. He did that which was evil in the sight of God.

One day we will all stand before God. Celebrity, legacy, beauty, wealth, education…all may impress now. But when judged by a righteous judge all that will matter is our
relationship with God. It is very unique, but true; in eternity life will still depend upon not what you know, but Who you know.

Conclusion:

How is your relationship with God? If Bad: You can look forward to similar troubles as these kings. Civil war within yourself or your family. End of life…that isn’t how you would like. Legacy of nothing good, or no legacy at all. If Good: You can still look forward to struggle, sin, and troubles, but your end will be good. “He/She did that which was right in the eyes of God.”

What better thing could be said of a person?

The Armor of God

Join us every Thursday from September 7 to October 19 at 6:30pm as we learn how the enemy always fails when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion.

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

These were all during Asa’s reign in Judah:

  • Nadab reigned for 2 years (15:25-31)
  • Ba-asha reigned for 24 years (15:32-16:7)
  • Elah reigned for 2 years (16:8-14)
  • Zimri reigned for 7 days (16:15-20)
  • Tibni reigned (16:21)
  • Omri reigned 12 years (16:22-28)
  • Ahab reigns after Omri for the next 22 years (16:28-34)

Each of these kings is said to have done worse than the king before them in the eyes of the Lord. All going back to Jeroboam. As you may remember, Jeroboam didn’t do anything “too” bad, but each generation behind him embraced false religion and moved a step further away from God. Before we get to Ahab, Israel is left with it’s very own civil war and the nation is in a state of chaos. All of this seemingly stemming from Jeroboam’s introduction of a little bit a sin.

The Application:

How did things get SO BAD? One author calls what we read here, “The progressive momentum of evil.” How true this is. We observe this with: drugs, alcohol, sex, gluttony, poor money management, and any other habit that exploits the user.
But often it is overlooked in the most simple area: our relationship with God. How did things ever get so bad? “Even the smallest departure from God inevitably intensifies into gigantic proportions unless God intervenes with forgiveness and renewal.”
Jeroboam’s sin was minor: he set up images of Yahweh (God) to help the people visualize His power. 50 years later there was intentional idolatry.
