Ahab’s final ruin came at the hands of Jehu King of Judah in fulfillment of the Word of God spoken through Elijah because of Ahab’s wickedness as the King of Israel. Ahab had been killed along with his wife Jezebel. Then in II Kings 10 we are told of the slaughter of Ahab’s 70 descendants and the prophets of Baal. It is hard to admit we are in a real spiritual battle and that we cannot idly sit by while the opposition does great evil. The Allies had to engage Hitler or be destroyed. We must be men of courage.
