How Bad Do You Have To Have It?

Scripture Text: I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen. Ezekiel 20:41 KJV

Jezebel was the ancient Israel princess. Jezebel gets married King Ahab; she turns King Ahab away from God and turns him toward the idol god Baal. King Ahab was one of the most mischievous king’s in the Old Testament. Naboth was an owner of a piece of property. Naboth had a fine-looking vineyard. King Ahab desired so badly the beautiful vineyard. Naboth inherited this land from his father. Under the Jewish law, he couldn’t turn away from the land or sell it to anyone. King Ahab told Naboth he would pay any price for this piece of land. He wanted to plant a vegetable garden since the vineyard was so close to his house. Naboth told King Ahab the vineyard is not for sale. This vineyard is my inheritance. This vineyard has been in my family for generations. King Ahab went back to his house. King Ahab is so depressed; he turns down to food to eat, he is lying on his bed with his face toward the wall. King Ahab wife Jezebel wrote all kinds of letters to the leaders in the city. She told them by orders to find someone to lie against Naboth. Jezebel wanted someone to lie against him, and that Naboth commits blasphemy against God and King Ahab. Jezebel becomes aware that Naboth and his sons are dead. She was so excited that her husband King Ahab would finally have this beautiful garden for he wanted so badly. Elijah went and told King Ahab. God has seen what Jezebel your wife has done. There is a great punishment for you and your wife. You’ve sold yourself for evil and you will pay.

In the Word of God, it records, And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dog lick thy blood, even thine. (1ST Kings 21:19 KJV) King Ahab thought to himself that he had the vineyard for such a cheap price. It cost him and his wife everything. We all have experienced some sort of pleasant to unpleasant feelings. Our society is so messed up. We have to stop looking for what we don’t have. Covetousness is dangerous. Don’t let it grow in your life. Be content with what you have.

We need to help all we can. I know for myself it makes my heart full of joy when I can help others. No money can buy a person with a servant’s heart. Let’s all help each other on this road we are traveling, be a friend.
