MGTOW men, welcome back. It’s MGTOW Sermon Sunday and we are back under way with another talk, this time regarding Jehu who I have talked about before dating back to my talks on Jezebel and Ahab. So, if you need a background before checking this one out, please head back and look those up to help inform you. I alluded to the fact that I needed to make one of these talks, and I’m finally doing so.
Who was Jehu? Jehu was a man that isn’t all in honor, isn’t held entirely in good esteem. He is a man that was driven, anointed and pivotal in removing a thorn from the side of Israel, Jezebel and Ahab’s line, but he was overcome by the pursuit of doing that.
He was the man that killed Jezebel and was not phased by her gaze and her advances, despite her adornments, her lavish appearance, her gaze, her guise. Ahab was a weak man, bending over backwards to his wife that ruled him, not at all the other way around, and it emerged and led to ruin. It destroyed the nation and it is a representation of what a weak-willed man, overcome with lust for a woman can do or not do.
Jehu was not phased by that and he was the one that came in and removed Ahab and Jezebel alike, and we need a spark of Jehu in our lives. I’ve discussed the MGTOW man as a meek man. He is a meek man. He, for the most part we are, we are ghosting. We are keeping to ourselves and we are not aiming to bear the sword. Does the sword occasionally get bore to the enemy? Of course it does. But, I believe the goal is to ghost, to avoid and to live to fight another day. We have no choice but to mainly pursue that.
Conversely, there is a time to bear the sword, and that’s what Jehu did and that’s the assertive element of being meek. If you are meek you are standing firm, quiet but with your sword well trained and primed to attack if need be. That’s the difference. Jehu did that. Ahab failed here, so I’m going to read a bit about Jehu.
As most of you know, or if this is the first time that you’ve listened to one of my videos on a Sunday, I take a red pill passage from the Bible and I look into it from the MGTOW lens.
2 Kings 9
The prophet Elisa summoned a man from the company of the prophets and said to him, “Tuck your cloak into your belt, take this flask of olive oil with you and go to Ramoth Gilead. When you get there, look for Jehu son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi. Go to him, get him away from his companions and take him into an inner room. Then take the flask and pour their on his head and declare. “This is what the Lord says: I anoint you king over Israel, ‘Then open the door and run; don’t delay!”
So the young prophet went to Ramoth Gilead. When he arrived, he found the army officers sitting together. “I have a message for you, commander,” he said.
“For which of us?” asked Jehu.
“For you, commander,” he replied.
Jehu got up and went into the house. Then the prophet poured the oil on Jehu’s head and declared, “This is what the lord, the God of Israel, says: “I anoint you king over the Lord’s people Israel. You are to destroy the house of Ahab your master, and I will avenge the blood of my servants the prophets and the blood of the Lord’s servants shed by Jezebel. The whole house of Ahab will perish. I will cut off from Ahab every last male in Israel — slave or free. I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam son of Nebat and like the house of Baasha son of Ahijah. As for Jezebel, dogs will devour her on the plot of ground at Jezebel, and no one will bury her. Then he opened the door and ran.
When Jehu went out to his fellow officers, one of them asked him, “is everything all right? Why did this maniac come to you?”
“You know the a the sort of things he says,” Jehu replied.
“That’s not true!” they said. “Tell us.”
Jehu said,”Here is what he told me: ‘This is what the Lord says: I anoint you king over Israel.”
They quickly took their cloaks and spread them under him on the bare steps. Then they blew the trumpet and shouted, “Jehu is king!”
Jehu Kills Joram and Ahaziah
So Jehu son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi, conspired against Joram. (Now Joram and all Israel had been defending Ramoth Gilead against Hazel king of Aram, but King Joram had returned to Jezebel to recover from the wounds the Arameans had inflicted on him in the battle with Hazael king of Aram.) Jehu said, “If you desire to make me king don’t let anyone slip out of the city to go and tell the news in Jezebel. Then he got into his chariot and rode to Jezreel, because Joram was resting there and Ahaziah king of Judah had gone down to see him.
When the lookout standing on the tower in Jezreel saw Jehu’s troops approaching, he called out, “I see some troops coming.”
“Get a horseman,” Joram ordered. “Send him to meet them and ask, ‘Do you come in peace.”
The horseman rode off to meet Jehu and said, “This is what the king says: “Do you come in peace?”
“What do you have to do with peace?” Jehu replied. “Fall in behind me.”
The lookout reported, “The messenger has reached them, but he isn’t coming back.”
So the king sent out a second horseman. When he came to them he said, “This is what the king says: Do you come in peace.’
Jehu replied, “What do you have to do with peace? Fall in behind me.”
The lookout reported, “He has reached them, but he isn’t coming back either. The driving is like that of Jehu son of Nimshi —he drives like a maniac.”
“Hitch up my chariot,” Joram ordered. And when it was hitched up, Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah rode out, each in his own chariot, to meet Jehu. They met him at the plot of ground that had belonged to Naboth the Jezreelite. When Joram saw Jehu he asked, “Have you come in peace, Jehu?”
“How can there be peace,” Jehu replied, “as long as all the idolatry and witchcraft of your mother Jezebel around?”
Joram turned about and fled, calling out to Ahaziah, “Treachery, Ahaziah.”
Then Jehu drew his bow and shot Joram between the shoulders. The arrow pierced his heart and he slumped down in his chariot. Jehu said to Bidkar, his chariot officer, “Pick him up and throw him on the field that belonged to Naboth the Jezreelite. Remember how you and I were riding together in chariots behind Ahab his father when the Lord spoke this prophecy against him: ‘Yesterday I saw the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons, declares the Lord, and I will surely make you pay for it on this plot of ground, declares the Lord. Now then, pick him uno and throw him on that plot, in accordance with the word of the Lord.
They went on to pursue Ahaziah as well, wounding him before eventually he eventually died in Megiddo. Now, thus brings us to the death of Jezebel.
Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she put on eye makeup, arranged her hair and looked out of a window. As Jehu entered the gate, she asked, “have you come in peace, you Zimri, you murderer of your master?”
He looked up at the window and called out, “Who is on my side? Who?” Two or three eunuchs looked down at him. “Throw her down!” Jehu said. So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered the wall and the horses as they trampled her underfoot.
Jehu went in and ate and drank. “Take care of that cursed woman,” he said, “and bury her, for she was a king’s daughter.” But when they went out to bury her, they found nothing except her skull, her feet and her hands. They went back and told Jehu, who said, “This is the word of the Lord that he spoke through his servant Elijah the Tishbite: On the plot of ground at Jezreel dogs will devour Jezebel’s flesh. Jezebel’s body will be like dung on the ground in the plot at Jezebel, so that no one will be able to say, ‘This is Jezebel.”
A Jehu, and the contrast to Ahab
A Jehu is not dissuaded by that which fells Ahab, the man that he is accounting for. The Jehu has to forego political and social acceptance for duty, and that’s what he does here. But, he doesn’t have to be an activist, he just has to put and to something.
Now, Jehu didn’t go without punishment and he was not perfect. He went on to slaughter 80 worshippers of Baal, which was not what he was called to do, he was rather called to put an end to the house of Ahab, which he did.
But, I saw a Reddit post that said Elijah and Jehu were the manosphere, Jezebel is feminism and the eunuchs were the simps. Simps, really inaccurate understanding of the eunuchs, but I would say that the Jehu is an example of the freedom of a man that is not enslaved the agenda of acceptance. When you are not enslaved to the agenda of acceptance, which Ahab was, you can eradicate that which is toxic. When you are enslaved to it you live in shame. That’s the Ahab and Jehu difference. With Jehu, there is no shame, with Ahab, your life is full of shame. You live in it and you’re known for it, that’s what you risk.
Again, what I see is power in the rogue man. The rogue man has not been domesticated and anesthetized, and there needs to be a certain element of maniac in the MGTOW man’s mind in order to allow him to go this way. If you’re an Ahab, you don’t have enough positive maniacal behavior in you, and as a result, you want to be tamed, and this is when you get the nice guy and Jezebel combination that was at play, didn’t just ruin their rule but eradicated the lineage that he had.
Are you an Ahab, needing a Jezebel to bring you false manliness and requiring an Ahab to inject some back in? Or, are you a Jehu? Restrained mania, MGTOW.
Hit me up with another request and I’ll aim to get to it. Thanks for the patience over the past few days.
