Follow Instructions

If you are a child of many things, children are ignorant to the understanding of how a thing work —the mechanism and the functionality of it. Basically, if you play with fire, children, there is a possibility you will be burned.

Paying attention to the instructions of a parent warnings will benefit you even if the parent doesn’t take the time, at that moment of instruction, give detail explanation as to why you should reframe from doing or participating in an action.

I myself have stumbled many times from an inward knowing to halt the participation in a place or even reframe from dialogue in a conversation.  I have learned by many failed attempts of not listening to an inward individual but have a gained understanding and now, my will is no longer in this area but His will is right, every time. The Father knows best.

Let me take it to the word of God to give an example of participating in error.

Let’s take a read in 1Kings 22:2—

1 Kings 21:2 says, So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seem good to you, I will give you its worth in money.”—

Here we see that the vineyard in 1st Kings 21 is talking about Naboth being the owner of the vineyard positioned next to the palace.

In 1 Kings 21, Ahab approached Naboth asking him for his vineyard by saying, “give me”,  that vineyard that is part of his lineage blessings. Naboth replied to Ahab by saying “I will not give you my vineyard”.

Ahab even suggested to buy, but Naboth canceled the purchase and said no in given him his Vineyard for another type of vineyard.  In this story, Naboth was later setup by Ahab wife  Jezebel which Ahab gave Jezebel authority over his being leadership and king and had Naboth killed for the vineyard anyway by setting Naboth up with actions to make Naboth feel important sitting with high esteem official between two officials falsely accused Naboth.

And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
1 Kings 21:8-10

Another biblical character where we see another purchase for the vineyard was the transaction between Judas and Priests leaders offering Judas 30 shackles of silver which Judas received and he gave Christ over to the Priest leaders. Afterward Judas hung himself for his treacherous actions.

In both cases, the Prophet Jehue shows to address Jezebel and the Prophet Jesus very presence judge righteously all things by the word of God.

Be content with knowing that you, the redemption with you and in all thing is alive and well.  Amen Amen and Amen
