Sifted As Wheat

This message continues the introduction to 1st Peter. Peter was the impetuous disciple. To be useful to God he had to change. The problem was that Peter thought he was quite spiritual just the way he was. But God saw differently. In these verses Jesus tells Peter of the coming trials that will make him useful to God.

Suffering and Submission

Peter is writing to scattered believers. They fled to Asia Minor and there they found new challenges in life. So it is that life does have its problems but with the Lord those trials have purpose and by God’s grace we can endure and live a victorious life that is pleasing to God.

Cain and Abel

We can learn much from these famous people in the scriptures. They both knew to sacrifice to God, but they differed in their offering. Abel offered from the flock but Cain from the fruit of the ground. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not accepted. Only a sacrifice of blood could cover their sin. This is still true today. Faith in the shed blood of Jesus for salvation is the only acceptable way to eternal life.

Not By Chance

In this message we see the deceptive behavior of King Ahab to save his life in battle. Rather than accept God as the true god he schemed to save his life. But his deceptions failed, and he was fatally wounded by a random arrow shot into the chaos of battle. God is surely in control of this world.

The Majority Was Wrong

King Jehoshaphat unites with King Ahab against Syria. The 400 prophets of Baal tell them of sure victory but Micaiah declared the word of the Lord that they will lose the battle and King Ahab will die. Thus, Micaiah was the only one who stood for truth and The Majority was Wrong.

All For A Vineyard

This is the sad story of King Ahab who wanted another man’s vineyard. The palace and the rule over 10 tribes was not enough for him. He just had to have that vineyard so much so that the owner was killed so that the king could have his vineyard. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Syria’s First Campaign Against Israel

The work of God through Elijah is still fresh in the events of Israel. Now God moves this great army against King Ahab and the Northern Kingdom. The purpose is to get Ahab to realize that Jehovah is God! We would think that would have been settled by the fire from heaven but not so. So, God continues his pursuit of Ahab to humble himself to a right relationship with Him.
