The trial of Derek Chauvin ended on Tuesday. He was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd. Wednesday morning, I read…
“I see a mob” … “Do you come in peace?”
No, these were not quoting from the media but quotes from the Bible.
2 Kings 9:17, 18, “Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel. He saw Jehu’s mob approaching and shouted, ‘I see a mob!’
Joram responded, ‘Choose a rider and send him to meet them and have him ask, “Do you come in peace?” ‘
18) So a horseman went to meet Jehu and said, ‘This is what the king asks: “Do you come in peace?” ‘
Jehu replied, ‘What do you have to do with peace? Fall in behind me.’
The watchman reported, ‘The messenger reached them but hasn’t started back.’ “Christian Standard Bible
The mob was there to usher in a new kingdom. History is repeating itself. People are falling in – just as they got behind Jehu.
God told Elisha to anoint Jehu King of Israel, see 2 Kings 9:1-3. God was in control.
He is still in control. He can bring beauty from ashes. He promises to make all things work together for our good, see Romans 8:28.
