Context: Where does this fit in the Big Picture of God's Glory?
Passing of Ahab, moving toward the handoff from Elijah to Elisha
There’s our friend, the Mesha Stele, celebrating the rebellion of Moab...
Baal-zebub; Beelzebub; Lord of the Flies
Overview: What's going on here?
FIRE FROM HEAVEN, SUCKERS!
Ahaziah does a bad thing.
Then he does a dumb thing.
Then, he sends soldiers to do an awful thing.
->Side note: you do not always have to say everything for folks to understand what you are about—and you cannot fault people for thinking through the implications of your attitude, your history to go along with your words and actions.
Reflection: Why does this matter?
You’re not Elijah.
You’re one of the fifty.
Are we respecting the Word of God, given through the Son of God?
Or do we come humbly?
Because we could face the fire—or take the grace.
Expectations: What do we do about it?
