THEME: CHRIST SHALL SET YOU FREE
If the Lord set you free, you are free indeed.
To identify the voice of Jezebel
To maintain our stand in God
To be mindful of what we pray about
To deal with the spirit of fear
King Ahab, son of Omri, King of Israel and Baal worshiper, provoked God. He allowed the foundations of Jericho to be rebuilt with human life. Ahab was a religious man but he was converted by Jezebel. Jezebel misled Ahab to do so many things Ahab was not suppose to do, going against the will of God.
Jezebel on the other hand was from the family of idol worshipers, a zealous participant in the worship of Baal. She allowed the temple of Ball to operate in Israel and mislead many children of Israel into sin of adultery and idolatry. She converted Ahab and instigated Ahab to kill Naboth.
Elijah was the greatest prophet in the Old testament. He survived many assassination attempts. He was a man of prayer and the word. Some of the exploits of Elijah include ceasing the rains for years, the miracle for a woman of Zarephath, resurrection of a widow's son, calling of fire from heaven among others. He exposed Baal as powerless and does not control the rains. This can let you lose your identity and your focus.
You need not to run when these threat comes your way. For He did not give you the spirit of fear. You can use the word of God to consume this words.
WHY THEN DID HE RUN AWAY
Be careful of the voice of Jezebel
Don’t lose focus or your identity in Christ
Be mindful of what you pray about when you are afraid
Confess the word and abide by it
Don’t hide in cause, come out
It is just a threat
You have the mandate to face problem, stop running and face the problems (Colossians 3:3, Job 1:12). Stop running! Go back and claim what is yours.
