Judges 17: 6 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. This sentence was repeated three more times in the book. It means everyone made rules and lives by whatever pleases them per time. They were a law unto themselves, answerable to no one. No guidelines, no best practices, agreed to stipulations of how we ought to live, behave and serve God and others. The list goes on! So is chaos!
King here refers to leadership, a supreme being, authority and to bring it down to this moment, for a man, a King is first God Almighty, Father – spiritual and biological, bosses, and anyone in authority above you.
A king to a woman represents God Most High first, husband if you are married, Father – both spiritual and biological, bosses and anyone in authority above you. To both sexes, then when there is no “King’, that is, when there is no one we are answerable to, that is when everyone does as they saw fit! We behave and act as we deem fit which does not necessarily mean good, bad or perfect, for you know our knowledge and perspective at best are one-sided and narrow often.
When we do not have the full picture of a situation, we bring tools we think is ideal to play. This most often will give temporary relief, but, to garner a long lasting solution and relief, knowing and having all sides of the issue tabled before us will enable us to proffer the best solution which is where the need for a “King” comes in.
The role of a King cannot be emphasized enough in a nation, life of its people and individuals. Therefore, be careful and prayerful! Only the King Eternal has the full picture of your life and He has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit to guide us. You must be answerable to God, the King Eternal and to those He has set over you. Only then, can you actually live to please Him that died for you
In many instances, Kings have been the downfall of a nation and also the strength, prosperity, peace, and well-being of its people. The King then, that only good emanate from is the King Eternal. From the category of Kings, you have choices to make except in the King – biological father. All others then require you to seek the King Eternal’s input to make the best choice.
Have you been making wrong choices? Does it seem you cannot make right choice since all your choices have been “ish” afterward? Will you go to the King Eternal this moment? Ask Him to help you to make the right choices, not the choices based on your logic, but according to His will for you.
In organizations, we will say industrial best practices, which basically is a generally accepted way of doing things that give the best result superior to other means. Therefore, friends, let your next choice be made in line with the best practices, God’s best for you.
This brings me to this question! Have you given your life to Jesus Christ? I mean the King Eternal! Yes. Praise God! If you haven’t, today is the day to do that. You see, friends, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23! We all need a King, a Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ, be you a man or a woman, young or old! Jesus Christ died for us, let us live for Him! Repent of your sinful ways friend, accept Christ Jesus into your heart, confess Him as the King and Lord over your life. Speak to the King now!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Your life must be lived to the Lord’s glory. Remember you were crucified with Christ, nevertheless you live, yet not you, but Christ, for the life that you live now, you live by the love of Christ who loved you enough to die for you! Therefor live to His glory!
Be happy and contented with the fact that your life is beautiful just the way it is this moment. There is even more beauty and sweetness in your future, than whatever you have ever experienced in the past or experiencing presently.

Keep at it! Trust Jehovah and lean on The Rock totally!
Where would I be without the saving grace of the Most High? Had not our trust be in the Lord, what will the righteous say? No one by his own knowledge, power and anointing can save himself, no one can shield himself from the fiery darts of the wicked but for the Lord, for His mercy endures for ever.
Psalms 31:19 How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you.
20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
from accusing tongues.
21 Praise be to the Lord,
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
“I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.
The Lord is kind and merciful to all those who put their trust in Him. The Lord Our God is the Ancient of Days, the Bright Morning Star, the All Sufficient God, the Immortal, Invicible, and Only Wise God. If it had not been for this Magnificent God, where will you be? Where will I be?
And you out there still dilly dallying about making a decision to follow the Lord, I want you to know this moment you are doing yourself a disfavour. Why would you not choose life? Every soul is designed to live eternally, the question is where do you want to spend yours? Heaven or Hell? I bet you’ve seen enough hell in this world, all around is chaos, man’s inhumanity to man abound, minds been taken over by evil permeate every spheres of life. Why would you not choose to be on the Lord’s side? Come to Jesus Christ today! Confess and repent of your sins, acknowledge Jesus as the Son of the Almighty God who has given His life for yours to redeem your soul and reconcile you to your maker. Invite the Lord into your life today, speak to Jesus right now for He is listening. Jesus loves you!
Psalms 84:10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
12 Lord Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
Union between a man and a woman is the first institution ordained by God as stated in the account of creation- Genesis 1:27 For so God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 2:18 however is where I am going to for the Lord said “And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
God created woman to be a help mate, she was comparable to him, she was to be treated like an equal, a part of a man, but man since Adam had a “defect” if I may say, for man delegated the dominion mandate to love and care for All that God had placed before them to the woman. Man was not approachable in the Garden then, neither are they approachable even now. Man had always chosen the high road, centered on themselves, career, business, leisure and other interest, leaving the woman to dominate every spheres, raising and training children, homemaking and so on were relegated. The one sphere man seem to have mastered and are excelling is in procreating, for man can sow as many seed as possible amongst very many fertile but not necessarily pure soil and can start fire in a bulrush in a twinkle.
So why have I included the accounts of these Kings below? This is to let the man know that the kind of life lived will determine their posterity. God did not bother so much about the sin of the woman like that of the man, for the man carries the seed of life in his loin. Jezebel was dealt with in that she died a gruesome death and dogs licked her blood, however Ahab’s lineage was cut off including his relatives, every single male. This is a warning!!!!! I don’t think there is a red blooded man that do not want to leave an offspring to carry his seed generation unborn, be it female or male! A lot depend on the men folks, please take your rightful place so posterity can bless you! Repent today and seek the face of God, for God is not willing that any should perish but have everlasting life.
There is opportunity even today to make amends and seek God’s face for direction.
So therefor, Godly men reading this, God has called you and placed you in a home to be a “god” and not a “demon” or a “parasite” sucking life out of the very woman and offsprings you are called to care for and nurture to health and vitality! Neither should you be a weakling, subject to manipulation, ruled and controlled by the Jezebel of our time.
2 Chronicles 7: 13 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
1 Kings 16:30 Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him. 31 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. 32 Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a wooden image. Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him. 1 Kings 21:2121 ‘Behold, I will bring calamity on you. I will take away your posterity, and will cut off from Ahab every male in Israel, both bond and free. 22 I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, because of the provocation with which you have provoked Me to anger, and made Israel sin.’ 23 And concerning Jezebel the Lord also spoke, saying, ‘The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.’ 24 The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Ahab and dies in the city, and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the field.”
2 Kings 21: 10 And the Lord spoke by His servants the prophets, saying, 11 “Because Manasseh king of Judah has done these abominations (he has acted more wickedly than all the Amorites who were before him, and has also made Judah sin with his idols), 12 therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Behold, I am bringing such calamity upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears will tingle. 13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the measuring line of Samaria and the plummet of the house of Ahab; I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. 14 So I will forsake the remnant of My inheritance and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become victims of plunder to all their enemies, 15 because they have done evil in My sight, and have provoked Me to anger since the day their fathers came out of Egypt, even to this day.’”
Lives get turned upside down by the sins of Fathers, therefor I am appealing to every Father out there, this also applies to everyone playing the role of a Father both spiritual and physical , adopted and foster. Let us endeavor to make a positive impact in the lives of those around us.
May posterity bless us all – male and female!
