It is coming. ( 2 Thessalonians 1 v 5 - 9 )
King Ahab was king of the breakaway state known as the northern state,which included Ten of the tribes of Israel, the other two were known,ah you know, the southern kingdom.Instead of the northern state holding unto God and His way, they parted very quickly, and never really returned spiritually, but God continued to speak to them by prophets like Elijah , and Elisha, at times it appeared they were winning the battle for the spiritual well being of the country,but it was not to be, they kept moving further and further away from God,until they were moved into oblivion by God.Lets return to Ahab, he was privileged to have God speaking to him, through the prophet Elijah,and witnessed Gods power ( 1 Kings 17 -18 ),but it did not appear to make any difference.He had also an evil wife who killed many of Gods prophets, she was a Gentile,but they ran their course,and both Ahab and Jezebel, both died violent deaths,for God judged them.Many nations ,many leaders, many people have cast of God,will in the end be cast off by God. It is only a matter of time before God will judge the world,and people will cry for the mountains and rocks to fall on them , to hide them from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb .For the great day of their wrath has come,and who can stand. (Revelation 6 v 16 - 17 ) Will your cry be to late?
