S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Kings 10:27
They demolished the sacred stone of Baal and tore down the temple of Baal, and people have used it for a latrine to this day.
A man named Jehu, who had been anointed by Elisha, began to carry out God’s will and eventually ruled Israel as King. One day Jehu struck down King Ahab’s wife Jezebel. Ahab had already been killed in battle. Then he killed 70 of Ahab’s sons. Then he killed Ahaziah King of Judah. While he was destroying Baal’s temple, he crushed the stone Baal. Since he demolished the stone and tore down all the walls of the temple, the Bible says people have used that location as a latrine, urinal, or “A Place to Pee” ever since.
Any time you try to take the place of Almighty God by replacing Him with some dead piece of stone, and have it reproduced to sit on people’s kitchen tables, you are daring God to respond. In fact, in this case God responded by destroying King Ahab’s lifeless stone god known as Baal, and Baal’s temple, and turned them both into a literal Pee-Hole. When God said, “You shall have no other gods before me” (Ex.20:3), He wasn’t kidding. God will share His glory with no one. He loves everyone as His own, but He won’t share His glory. When God sent His associate Jehu in to clean up the mess, Jehu blew it up and turned it into a permanent “Place To PEE!” Remember dear friend, there’s only one God and His name is Jesus. Anything else is just toilet trash!
I’m thankful that I serve the only true and wise God, Jesus. He has made a way for me where there is no way. Amen
