May 4, 2024

Jehoram, the son of Ahab, became king after his death. He was not as evil as Ahab. However, he started a war with Moab and enlisted the help of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah and the king of Edom. Together, they sought after Elisha so he could enquire of God about going to war with Moab. I found it interesting that when Elisha called on the Lord, he used a musical instrument, just as some of today’s prophets use. I’m sure this scripture is where that came from.

But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him. 2 Kings 3:15

There was no water for their people or cattle in Moab, so Elisha told them that no rain would come, but water would come up from the ground. They followed all Elisha’s instructions from God and overcame Moab. The death toll was so bad that the king of Moab offered his son, the next in line for the throne, as a burnt offering to their god, Chemosh, to obtain his favor. Chemosh is nothing more than the devil himself, who delights in blood sacrifices. Look at the United States' trouble because of the prenatal sacrifices. The devil is fighting hard against us because true Christians want to do what’s right in the eyes of the Lord.
