Jehu is anointed by God’s prophet. Jehu is God’s Christ to bring Israel back to Himself. Jehu kills Joram, Ahaziah and Jezebel. Israel’s redemption is not accomplished! Jehu is another Saul. Israel needed another Saviour! Read Ezekiel 22:30.
“For the whole house of Ahab shall perish, and I will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel.”
A bloody end to Ahab’s family.
It’s interesting to think about a line being cut off. A curse on an entire lineage.
These thoughts lead me to Adam. The curse of sin, through Adam (1 Cor 15 v21-22). Mankind’s entire lineage is cursed!
But we have the second Adam, Jesus – Through Him this curse is reversed, the penalty taken away.
This is the good news. That in Jesus we are no longer cut off from God. He has made us alive together with Him (Eph 2).
Praise God! What a Saviour!
