Journal Through the Bible: Week 53 Monday

II Kings chapter 10

Jehu declared that he had zeal for the LORD. That zeal caused him to slaughter the family of Ahab as well as all of the worshipers of Baal. Unfortunately his zeal ended short of destroying those golden calves that Jeroboam had made.

Does God issue any commands?

  • No, but we read of God's prior commands to Jehu being complete.

Does God  make any promises?

  • God promised Jehu that because of his obedience to destroy the house of Ahab and Jezebel God would allow Jehu's dynasty to reign over Israel unto the fourth generation.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?
  • Jehu affirmed that every word of God's prophecy is true (verse 10). Jesus did the same. 

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Unlike Jehu, the zeal that Jesus has for the LORD and His word is not marred or limited by selfish ambition. Jesus will one day complete the destruction of the wicked. And His kingdom will not last for merely 4 generations. His kingdom will have no end. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.(Isaiah 9:7)
