“The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!” 1Ki 21:3 NKJV

The Bible says: “Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard…next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 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 seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money.’ But Naboth said to Ahab, ‘The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!’” (vv. 1-3 NKJV). Standing by his “inheritance” cost this man of integrity his life. Today the faith of our fathers is coming under increasing attack from the schoolroom to the boardroom. Scriptural principles which have guided us for generations are being challenged and undermined by the Ahabs of this world who sit in places of power. The Bible predicted it and told us to be alert, but not afraid. God said to the end-age church, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer…Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev 2:10 NKJV). Naboth refused to sell out for money. He refused to sell out for that which looked “bigger and better.” He refused to sell out in order to win the favor of those in high places. And he is an example to you. So stand squarely on God’s Word and refuse to budge. Gather up your children in faith’s arms and declare, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Jos 24:15).
