2 Kings 10

10 And Ahab had seventy sons in Samaria. And Jehu wrote letters, and sent to Samaria, unto the rulers of Jezreel, to the elders, and to them that brought up Ahab’s children, saying,

2 Now as soon as this letter cometh to you, seeing your master’s sons are with you, and there are with you chariots and horses, a fenced city also, and armour;

3 Look even out the best and meetest of your master’s sons, and set him on his father’s throne, and fight for your master’s house.

4 But they were exceedingly afraid, and said, Behold, two kings stood not before him: how then shall we stand?

5 And he that was over the house, and he that was over the city, the elders also, and the bringers up of the children, sent to Jehu, saying, We are thy servants, and will do all that thou shalt bid us; we will not make any king: do thou that which is good in thine eyes.

6 Then he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If ye be mine, and if ye will hearken unto my voice, take ye the heads of the men your master’s sons, and come to me to Jezreel by to morrow this time. Now the king’s sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, which brought them up.

7 And it came to pass, when the letter came to them, that they took the king’s sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent him them to Jezreel.

8 And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king’s sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning.

9 And it came to pass in the morning, that he went out, and stood, and said to all the people, Ye be righteous: behold, I conspired against my master, and slew him: but who slew all these?

10 Know now that there shall fall unto the earth nothing of the word of the Lord, which the Lord spake concerning the house of Ahab: for the Lord hath done that which he spake by his servant Elijah.

11 So Jehu slew all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his kinsfolks, and his priests, until he left him none remaining.

12 And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. And as he was at the shearing house in the way,

13 Jehu met with the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are ye? And they answered, We are the brethren of Ahaziah; and we go down to salute the children of the king and the children of the queen.

14 And he said, Take them alive. And they took them alive, and slew them at the pit of the shearing house, even two and forty men; neither left he any of them.

15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

17 And when he came to Samaria, he slew all that remained unto Ahab in Samaria, till he had destroyed him, according to the saying of the Lord, which he spake to Elijah.

18 And Jehu gathered all the people together, and said unto them, Ahab served Baal a little; but Jehu shall serve him much.

19 Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtilty, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.

20 And Jehu said, Proclaim a solemn assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.

21 And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another.

22 And he said unto him that was over the vestry, Bring forth vestments for all the worshippers of Baal. And he brought them forth vestments.

23 And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal, and said unto the worshippers of Baal, Search, and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the Lord, but the worshippers of Baal only.

24 And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.

25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

26 And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

27 And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

29 Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

32 In those days the Lord began to cut Israel short: and Hazael smote them in all the coasts of Israel;

33 From Jordan eastward, all the land of Gilead, the Gadites, and the Reubenites, and the Manassites, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, even Gilead and Bashan.

34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehu, and all that he did, and all his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

35 And Jehu slept with his fathers: and they buried him in Samaria. And Jehoahaz his son reigned in his stead.

36 And the time that Jehu reigned over Israel in Samaria was twenty and eight years.

  1. iLove to Grow in the Word
    31But Jehu did not obey the Law of the lord, the God of Israel, with all his heart. He refused to turn from the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.

    What was this one thing that kept King Jehu from following the Lord with his whole heart? Do we remember what the sin of Jeroboam was? The sin of Jeroboam was he persuaded the people to worship in Samaria instead of Jerusalem.

    When the kingdom was divided and he controlled the northern part, he stopped all pilgrimages to Jerusalem: “‘It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’ One [golden calf] he set up in Bethel, and the other in Dan. And this thing became a sin; the people came to worship the one at Bethel and went as far as Dan to worship the other” (1 Kings 12:28–30).

    In addition to sacrificing to these two golden calves, Jeroboam “built shrines on high places and appointed priests from all sorts of people, even though they were not Levites” (1 Kings 12:31). God’s entire system of holy days, sacrifices, and worship was changed into a man-made system focused on worshiping golden calves. In addition to the idolatry, the cities of Bethel and Dan became the places of worship rather than God’s chosen city of Jerusalem (cf. 2 Chronicles 6:6).

  2. 16. Then Jehu said, “Now come with me, and see how devoted I am to the LORD.” So Jehonadab rode along with him. NLT

    People won’t believe what you say if it contradicts what you do. Don’t tell me you are devoted – show me.

    James 2:18
    Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. KJV

  3. 23 And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal, and said unto the worshippers of Baal, Search, and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the Lord, but the worshippers of Baal only.

    24 And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.

    25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

    26 And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

    27 And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

    28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

    29 Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

    Deut 6:4-5

    4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:

    5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

    What an Awesome God we serve His name is Jesus Christ! The One and Only God!!!

  4. 30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    How sad that Jehu was promised so much but he did not keep the law of the Lord. What kept this man so distracted. We must continually guard our selves from the evils of this world keep our hearts ever so pure. Even in the midst of doing Gods commandments. We must stay close to the truth to the ways God wants us to go , staying closer to the kingdom of God than ever before. We must guard our hearts through prayer and continual obedience in everything and everyday living. God keep me ever so close to you that I may never stray from your law keep it ever in my heart. It is always a heart issue we cannot let bitterness , failures, disappointments and even the victories we have won to become an issue in our heart. Matter all Jehu did he took no heed to walk continually in the law of God.

    He still carried a seed of sin in his heart.

    • Thanks sis for just explaining the chapter to us as i was reading this chapter i was not sure what this chapter met. But As i read this chapter again u see that he was destructive we can’t let ourselves be be distracted of the fame of this world

  5. 31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    32 In those days the Lord began to cut Israel short: and Hazael smote them in all the coasts of Israel;

    You might think you’re doing the LORD’S work, but if you don’t separate yourself from the world and their ways then you will fall. Sometimes it’s not the devil stealing stuff, it may be God cutting you off because you still choose not to worship him fully.

  6. 15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

    16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

    Jehu had a enormous passion and zeal for God that is hard to match. He was so committed to doing the work of God it’s incredible! God increase my passion and zeal for you like Jehu!

  7. 16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

    Those around us should have not doubts as to whether or not we serve Jesus and follow his commandments.

  8. GROW IN OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD

    30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.
    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    We often celebrate the defeat of an adversary or the overcoming of a sin or addiction. These are good causes for celebration. However, if we fail to recognize the supreme deity of GOD, then any worship is idolatry.

    We must turn our hearts toward GOD. Repent of sins, by rejecting and turning away from all unrighteousness.

    We witness the missing element in Jehu was his desire and willingness to GROW IN OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD. Jehu was relentless in the execution of Baal the idol and the worshippers of it. However Jehu failed to take the next step in relationship development for the Kingdom of GOD. Jehu thought it would be enough to repent of idols and do away with idolatry, while he maintained his own sinful lusts.

    For us to walk away from sin we must engage and GROW IN sincere, unfettered OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD. Repent, yes, we MUST, however lets not stop there, ask what the LORD would have us to do for HIM.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap
    iGrow

  9. 30 Nonetheless the Lord said to Jehu, “You have done well in following my instructions to destroy the family of Ahab. Therefore, your descendants will be kings of Israel down to the fourth generation.”
    31 But Jehu did not obey the Law of the Lord, the God of Israel, with all his heart. He refused to turn from the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit. (NLT)

    Verse 30 says Jehu did well in following instruction, but verse 30 says he did not obey with all his heart. There is a difference! And that difference is attitude. Anyone can follow instructions and “walk the walk” but what’s the hearts true intentions? It doesn’t say what Jehu’s intentions were but my guess is, as a king he had a reputation to keep. Knowing God would reward him and keep his own family ruling the kingdom, he may have let that become his primary goal. Though he listened to God and did His work, he didn’t do it with the intention to bring God glory. We must check ourselves daily as we serve the Lord. Are we just following instruction or are we obeying His word with our whole hearts and keeping in mind Gods purpose for using us?

  10. 30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.
    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    Don’t throw away the promises of the Lord to please yourself in the flesh by partaking in sin. It’ll NEVER be worth it.

  11. 3D People

    Prov 29:25 The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that.

    Nobody is one-dimensional. There are three views of every individual: the view that God has of us, the opinions of others and the perception we have of ourselves. God does not observe people only from the outside, as humans tend to do; rather, as written in 1 Sam 16:7 “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature”. Some of the pretty people of this world likely are some of the worst on the inside; where God takes inventory.

    People may hold an opinion of us that is greatly exaggerated. Those who are in the public eye are idealized at times. On the other hand, some, who are honestly good people, sometimes are judged wrongly. Jesus did not deserve his public opinion.

    Honesty demands that we acknowledge our self-perception and how we may have over-inflated our view. Romans 12:3 “…it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves… The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.”

    If we really knew the impressions that others have of us, we might see ourselves in a totally different light.

  12. 4 But they were exceedingly afraid, and said, Behold, two kings stood not before him: how then shall we stand?
    How are we going to stand before Jesus when the trumpet sounds and time will be no more? I want to hear the words “well done thou good and faithful servant”.
    The only way we are going to hear those words is live by his word daily and do as God has commanded us to do.

  13. 30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    Jehu didn’t turn away from sin he thought if I do what the Lord asked me to do and then just do what I want to do after that I’ll be ok in the eyes of the Lord. He didn’t know that God knows and sees everything.

  14. 15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

    16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

  15. 0 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    Convenient for a season – it appears that it was convenient for a season for Jehu to walk in the ways of the Lord so that “his” purpose could be accomplished. But once “his” plan was executed, then he no longer need to walk in the ways of the Lord. It’s almost as if he used God to get what he wanted and then had no further need for him.

    How many times do we find ourselves in the same shoes? We must ask ourselves why are we serving the Lord? Is it just so He can meet our needs and be a “johnny on the spot” God to us? If that is the case we need to find an altar of repentance and fall in love with who Jesus is and what He is to us.

  16. 2 Kings 10:28 & 31
    28) Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
    31) But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the LORD God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    Jehu may have done right in the sight of God by detroying Baal out of Israel, BUT he didn’t walk in the law of God with all his heart.

    God doesn’t want us to live half-hearted for him (lukewarm). He wants us to live whole-hearted for Him.
    The scriptures that came to mind are Rev. 3:15-16. “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

    LIVE FOR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART !!

  17. 28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
    29 Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

    Jehu was zealous for the Lord, yet did not serve him completely by leaving the golden calves intact. He allowed the people to sin as well by not removing these idols from their land. I’ve heard it preached that 99% right doesn’t cut it because of that small 1% wrong. Wrong is wrong. Consider how God looks at sin – “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Rev 21:8 God doesn’t sort out which sin is worse – they are all the same to him. Help me Lord to follow you in all of my ways and not just what is convenient.

  18. 2 Kings 10:30-31 (Message)
    30 God commended Jehu: “You did well to do what I saw was best. You did what I ordered against the family of Ahab. As reward, your sons will occupy the throne of Israel for four generations.”
    31 Even then, though, Jehu wasn’t careful to walk in God’s ways and honor the God of Israel from an undivided heart. He didn’t turn back from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into a life of sin.

    It would seem as though Jehu was extreme. However he wasn’t extreme enough. Unfortunately he did all of the exterminating but left the golden calves in Bethel and Dan.

    The enemy doesn’t care if we go in a rampage cleaning the filth out of our lives as long as we leave one little idol.

    Just one idol, one sin, one purposeful disobedience can cost you everything if not repented over and made right with God.

  19. 15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

    16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot
    God help to have a passion for the things of you!

  20. 27 And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

    28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

    Just like Jehu got rid of Baal out of the land of Isreal, we need to have the goal to get rid of the false Gods out of our cities and neighborhoods. Not by killing them as Jehu did here but by reaching out to them and destroying the root of it, the spirits of deception trying to blind the eyes of people away from Jesus.

  21. “30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.”

    Lord I pray that the young people of my generation will walk in humility with you! That we stay obedient to your word and guidance. That we grow spiritually strong like never before , so we can BE the example of you in our everyday lives. I encourage all young people to obey God’s guidance in your life. Obedience equals love … If one does not obey , how can he/she say the love their father? Obedience can lead through a gateway of many opportunities God can use you for to not only bless you. BUT to be a blessing to someone else, by showing them the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE … Jesus! #Obedience=Love

  22. Jehu then proceeds to whipe out the rest of the family. He also assembles all offcials of the Baal cult supposedly to worship but infact destroys them. The massacre is a expedient intended to wipe out a religion closely linked with the roal house. Because Jehu fails to turn to the Lord his rules is marked by a series of military drfeats and by the gradual reduction in size of the Northern Kingdom.

  23. When the spotlight is on….

    30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

    It is awesome to do great things for the Lord, but if you are not going to live for him, it is all in vain.

    “For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭9:25‬ ‭

    Why go through all that blood and war to loose it for yourself?

    Serving God only in the spotlight or when someone is watching will put you in the same position.

  24. 2 Kings 10:10 Know now that there shall fall unto the earth nothing of the word of the Lord, which the Lord spake concerning the house of Ahab: for the Lord hath done that which he spake by his servant Elijah.

    The Lord’s Prophet
    I Samuel 3:19 And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.

  25. As I keep reading. Just to be honest. I found myself thinking what do I blog on? Isreal keeps doing the same thing over and over. They go to God. They fall away from God. The same thing over and over and over. Then a small yet powerful revelation came. If they would have just stuck with following God many of these things would not have happened. Wow what a concept. If you do right you get rewarded. If you do wrong you get rewarded for doing wrong. Stay focused on God and what he has for us.

  26. We must take the time to get ourselves right with God. We cannot worry about what others are doing. Our obedience to God’s word guarantees a victorious outcome.

  27. It would seem that if Jehu went through all the trouble of cleaning up the kingdom by the line of Ahab and the worshippers of Baal that he would live to obey the Law of the Lord. He doesn’t in fact in vs3 he turns to the sins of Jeroboam by worshipping false gods. Jehu would go out of his way for what benefited him but when it came to worshiping God where he commanded he refused. It wasn’t convenient to travel and gather it takes a servants heart to obey even when it’s not easy.

  28. Ride or die

    Ride or die- “A Hip Hop spin on the popular mythology of Bonnie and Clyde, the ride-or-die chick refers to a woman who has undying loyalty for her partner and is willing to stand by them through anything, even in the face of death.”

    15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

    16 And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

    1. Most people want to see what your doing before they believe what your saying
    2. It takes a person who has the right heart or attitude about what your doing and who your doing it for to understand the zeal you have. Many people who have a lack of understanding your position will feel threatened by you and in that fear will miss understand your words and actions; turning them to benefit themselves or your failure instead of your Victor!
    3. When going into battle of your heart is not right you are a good candidate to become a casualty of war.

    I use the term “ride or die” because getting into that chariot ment he would be in the battle but as a by stander. Yet even a by stander has to be willing to take take action if needed.

  29. “And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel. But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭10:30-31‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  30. 25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

    I am reminded of a quote I was once heard when I read this.
    “Sin wouldn’t be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.”

  31. 26 And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

    27 And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

    28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
    You gotta clean out the house of all the filth!!

  32. “Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtilty, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.” The word of Jesus (God) illustrates deception. Jehu was fulfilling the word of God; however the tactic is also used by those that are not. A deceiver knows no boundaries and has no loyalty, anyone that trusts one is unwise. Dear God, open our eyes that we would comprehend that a deceiver can never be trusted. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  33. “Know now that there shall fall unto the earth nothing of the word of the Lord, which the Lord spake concerning the house of Ahab: for the Lord hath done that which he spake by his servant Elijah.” The word of the Lord was fulfilled then, as it shall always be; therefore obedience to the word is wise. Likewise disobedience is unwise and costly, as all that want to see, can see. God bring revelation and realization, in Jesus name.

  34. 30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    The things that the Lord has commanded, from the Ten Commandments, all the way to the New Testament, are things that God his given us in His Word to follow. God up to this point had been dealing with the idolatry of the Israelites. He had many times given warning and execution to all the idol worship that had been going on. When Jehu executes one of Gods commands of riding a Baal religion, God mentioned how all of the things he had commanded before were things that were according to his heart. And not just that they were right in his eyes.

    God wants us to be engaged in us daily riding anything that is before him. No matter what it is.

    Nothing before God!

  35. 6 Then he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If ye be mine, and if ye will hearken unto my voice, take ye the heads of the men your master’s sons, and come to me to Jezreel by to morrow this time. Now the king’s sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, which brought them up.

    Let’s not hearken unto the voice of God. He is my everything and I know His plans are always better than my plans even when I might not see it. I need you Lord everyday!!

  36. God’s righteous judgement

    The massacre of the Baal worshippers continues. They are purged from the land. This chapter illustrates the judgement of God and his indignation against idolatry.

  37. You can dot all your “i’s” and cross all your “t’s” but is your heart truly after His heart? We should all be obedient to His instruction but it is the relationship that will create a lasting connection.

  38. 25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

    26 And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

    27 And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

    28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

    29 Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

    30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

  39. Verses 28-31 MSG “And that’s the story of Jehu’s wasting of Baal in Israel. But for all that, Jehu didn’t turn back from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, the sins that had dragged Israel into a life of sin—the golden calves in Bethel and Dan stayed. God commended Jehu: “You did well to do what I saw was best. You did what I ordered against the family of Ahab. As reward, your sons will occupy the throne of Israel for four generations.” Even then, though, Jehu wasn’t careful to walk in God’s ways and honor the God of Israel from an undivided heart. He didn’t turn back from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into a life of sin.” Jehu was failthful in the wasting of Baal; but, he didn’t turn back from the sins of Jeroboam. He tried to hold onto some things that he wasn’t willing to let go of. We must be cautious and check ourselves to make sure we are not holding onto to something that does not bring God glory.

  40. 30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

    The Lord is true to His Word. We should know that our actions and sins not only affect us but our future generations.

    Exodus 20:5-6Amplified Bible (AMP)

    5 You shall not worship them nor serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous (impassioned) God [[a]demanding what is rightfully and uniquely mine], visiting (avenging) the iniquity (sin, guilt) of the fathers on the children [that is, calling the children to account for the sins of their fathers], to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing graciousness and steadfast lovingkindness to thousands [of generations] of those who love Me and keep My commandments.

  41. “And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel. But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭10:30-31‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    This is what it’s like for us sometimes when we follow God. Some people kill their flesh and follow him with the their whole hearts. Others kill certain things and leave other more greive ours things to rule in the lives. It is sad when Jesus sees sacrifice and knows that we are doing what he told us to, but we just won’t go that one step more and follow him with our hearts.

    Seek him first.

  42. Verse 26
    And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.
    Sometime we have to get thing out of hearts and burn them, get rid of them.

  43. “But Jehu did not obey the Law of the LORD, the God of Israel, with all his heart. He refused to turn from the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.”
    ‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭10:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We must follow the Lord with our whole heart.

  44. 28 In this way, Jehu destroyed every trace of Baal worship from Israel.

    We too should destroys those things, idols in our lives that prevent us from serving the Lord.
