King Jehu’s Authority

“Now when Jehu arrived in Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it. So she painted her eyes, adorned her head, and looked down from a window. And as Jehu entered the gate, she asked, “Have you come in peace, O Zimri, murderer of your master? ” 2 Kings 9:30-31

Jezebel, the wicked witch murdering idolatrous perverse Queen ruler of Israel ironically tried to.make King Jehu feel guilty and accused him of murder after he, in obedience to the Lords command spoken through God’s prophet, put to death (killed, not murdered) the wicked King Joram and now he had come for her.

God, speaking through a prophet, had this “authorized by God” ruler, righteously put to death these other authorized rulers who misused their authority and did commit murder of innocent people among other atrocities.. God chose to judge and act, at this particular time in this particular way, for His good reasons.

And He (God) and he (King Jehu) also called military troops and eunuchs who were in the service of kingdom government, to participate.

“Let him who has ears, hear.”
