Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His hands on them and pray. (Matthew 19:13)
There was once a man called Naboth. He owned a vineyard right next to King Ahab's palace. Ahab wanted the vineyard and spoke to Naboth.
However the vineyard had been in Naboth's family for years and he did not want to sell it.
Ahab was so angry, he lay on his bed. He wouldn't eat and just stared at the wall in a sulk. Ahab's wife, Jezebel, came up to him. "What's the matter with you?" she said. Ahab explained what had happened. "Aren't you the king! get up and eat. I will get you the vineyard" Jezebel said.
Jezebel began to write letters in the king's name and sealed them with his seal. She sent them to the leaders of the city. She was plotting Naboth's death.
The letter said...
Everything happened as Jezebel requested. Naboth was falsely accused and taken out of the city and stoned to death.
Then Jezebel said to Ahab. "Get up and go and take your vineyard."
Jezebel and Ahab thought they had got away with murder but God sees all things. We will not get away with our sin.
Elijah was sent to the king with a message from God.
God's word always comes true and both Ahab and Jezebel were punished for their sin. The Lord Jesus Christ came into the World to save sinners. By trusting in him we can have our sins forgiven and become part of God's family.
