Day 11: The Consequential Arrow
Thursday, January 20, 2022
The Consequential Random Arrow is God’s weapon of change. It is the stirring of the prophetic gift to bring about judgment in a polity. It is one of God’s ways of checking the spirit of Antichrist that is busy at work in the world.
And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.1 John 4:3 NKJV
King Ahab, antichrist in his day and by default a very wicked king ruled over Israel for a total of 22 years. During his blood-curdling evil reign, the worship of Baal and Asherah, gods of the Zidonians became institutionalized. Baal worship was introduced by his wife Jezebel the daughter of the king of the Zidonians.
And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him.1 Kings 16:31 NKJV
During Ahab’s reign with Jezebel at his side the ordained temple worship of Jehovah as delivered to the Nation of Israel through Moses was suspended. Jezebel made sure to persecute and slaughter as many prophets of the Living God as she could. The palace itself directly supervised a large retinue of 400 prophets who were trained and commissioned to serve in the religious processions of Baal worship.
For so it was while Jezebel massacred the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah had taken one hundred prophets and hidden them, fifty to a cave, and had fed them with bread and water.1 Kings 18:4 NKJV
Divine judgment on Ahab and Jezebel was first prophesied by Elijah after how he and Jezebel conspired to kill and then steal the vineyard of a man called Naboth. Prophet Michaiah also prophesied Ahab’s death in 1 Kings 22. The prophecy did not detail how he would die but his demise was certain. God had spoken and nothing could stop it. During an allied war with King Jehoshaphat against Syria, Ahab out of fear and cunning disguised himself and hid away from being found out. This was not the customary or honorable thing for a king to do on the battlefront in those days but he did it anyway. No one on the battlefield could find the king of Israel but God and the prophetic word knew where he was hiding. And somehow the random arrow found him out.
Now a certain man drew a bow at random, and struck the king of Israel between the joints of his armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am wounded.” The battle increased that day; and the king was propped up in his chariot, facing the Syrians, and died at evening. The blood ran out from the wound onto the floor of the chariot.1 Kings 22:34-35 NKJV
How does this tie in with us living in Canada today you may ask? What business do we have with the gods of the Zidonians, Ahab, and Jezebel for that matter? These are good questions to ask.
Canada is on the brink of national upheaval. There are those who think this is not possible because since 1945 at the end of the second world war Canada has used her soft power in very exemplary ways on the world stage.
However many a time what brings a country to the brink of societal upheaval is the action of leadership. If the larger majority eventually sense despotic behavior and are wise up to it early enough, unrest happens to be the way societies have historically expressed themselves to an elitist out-of-touch leadership. Moreso the Church in Canada is beginning to be taunted openly. There are also several indications to the fact that the Government is more favorable to other faith adherents as long as they are non-Christian. The Canadian Government more than any time ever appears to be gleefully underwriting anything that openly wars against divine order.
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.”Psalm 2:2-3
God is interested in the course of nations and according to Romans 13, no one is in the seat of a King, President, or Prime Minister over the affairs of any nation who is not there by the permission of the Sovereign God. If that be the case then we are more than welcome to take our grievances to God. In our context, God’s Random Arrow will be anything He will anoint to use for upsetting the current national and global elite who run the show and are hell-bent on making life unbearable for the citizens of this country. It is God’s prerogative to choose whatever item in His arsenal, don’t forget that He owns everything. The Random Arrows are set up in every sector for many flights over this nation and the world at large.
