Hello, God has given me something in 2 Kings 10:19 which says,
“Now summon all the prophets of Baal, all his ministers and all his priests. See that no one is missing, because I am going to hold a great sacrifice for Baal. Anyone who fails to come will no longer live.” But Jehu was acting deceptively in order to destroy the ministers of Baal.”
Good job!: Hurray for Jehu! He got rid of the baal worshipers! But he didn’t get rid of the worship of the golden cows or try hard to keep the Lords law. God still promised Jehu that, because he got rid of the baal worshipers and Ahab’s family, Jehu’s sons would rule and there sons, all the way down to, the fourth generation.
The gospel!: Jesus is the only king, the only true God, He reigns. But Jesus gave up His life for us, He humbled Himself not only to being a mere human (no offense) and taking on flesh, but even humbling Himself down to dying a criminals death on the cross for a bunch of sinful, lowly, despised, wretched, wretches! He died on the cross for us, and He is still the king of kings, the Lord of lords, the God of gods, The ALMIGHTY!

What does it mean for us?: We can now go to heaven!! Hurray! Jesus died for us, so we can go to Heaven, and Jesus is preparing a place for us. Thank You Jesus! John 14:2 says,
“In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?”
Closing prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Thank You for giving Your life up for me, for humbling Yourself to die on a cross. I pray that I would be closer to You, and love You more. Thank You for letting me know about how You died on the cross for me. Thank You for preparing a place for me in Heaven. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
