2Kings 1-3 King Ahaziah had a nasty fall through the ceiling of his apartment. He must have had some severe injuries due to this and wanted to know if he would recover. He knew Elijah was one of God’s prophets yet did not call upon him. Instead, he sent messengers to inquire of the idol god Baal: “Go, ask Baal Zebub, the god of Ekron, if I will survive this injury.” As they were going, God’s angel came to Elijah. He was to go and ask the messengers “You must think there is no God in Israel.” As he sat there three g groups of soldiers came to inquire of Elijah. The first two companies of 50 were consumed by fire, but the last captain came and bowed before Elijah and sought mercy. Because he was humble, God told Elijah to go to the king. As he had said to the soldiers, he said to Ahaziah: ‘You must think there is no God in Israel!’ But, just like on Mt Carmel, the question was which God did Ahaziah serve: Baal or Yahweh.
Today many are like Ahaziah. Instead of asking God their question, they seek answers from any other source than Him. Our culture has put aside God and replaced him with the things of this world, which will surely pass away. Just like Ahaziah, we all will die and face the judgment. [Heb 9:27] It will be too late then to decide which God is the true God. I would love to show you the way to the True God: Yahweh. Send me a note if you are interested.
When you enter eternity, which God will you meet: Baal or Yahweh?
2 thoughts on “What God do you serve?”
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.” Isaiah 40:28. While Baal is a man made object. When people worship what they create of the elements, they should consider Who made the elements.
Excellent observation! Thanks for the comment.
