Bible Texts:

I Kings 21:1-29 NLT Naboth’s Vineyard
1 Now there was a man named Naboth, from Jezreel, who owned a vineyard in Jezreel beside the palace of King Ahab of Samaria.
2 One day Ahab said to Naboth, “Since your vineyard is so convenient to my palace, I would like to buy it to use as a vegetable garden. I will give you a better vineyard in exchange, or if you prefer, I will pay you for it.”
3 But Naboth replied, “The Lord forbid that I should give you the inheritance that was passed down by my ancestors.”
4 So Ahab went home angry and sullen because of Naboth’s answer. The king went to bed with his face to the wall and refused to eat!
5 “What’s the matter?” his wife Jezebel asked him. “What’s made you so upset that you’re not eating?”
6 “I asked Naboth to sell me his vineyard or trade it, but he refused!” Ahab told her.
7 “Are you the king of Israel or not?” Jezebel demanded. “Get up and eat something, and don’t worry about it. I’ll get you Naboth’s vineyard!”
8 So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent them to the elders and other leaders of the town where Naboth lived.
9 In her letters she commanded: “Call the citizens together for a time of fasting, and give Naboth a place of honor.
10 And then seat two scoundrels across from him who will accuse him of cursing God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death.”
11 So the elders and other town leaders followed the instructions Jezebel had written in the letters.
12 They called for a fast and put Naboth at a prominent place before the people.
13 Then the two scoundrels came and sat down across from him. And they accused Naboth before all the people, saying, “He cursed God and the king.So he was dragged outside the town and stoned to death.
14 The town leaders then sent word to Jezebel, “Naboth has been stoned to death.
15 When Jezebel heard the news, she said to Ahab, “You know the vineyard Naboth wouldn’t sell you? Well, you can have it now! He’s dead!”
16 So Ahab immediately went down to the vineyard of Naboth to claim it.
17 But The Lord said to Elijah,
18 “Go down to meet King Ahab of Israel, who rules in Samaria. He will be at Naboth’s vineyard in Jezreel, claiming it for himself.
19 Give him this message: ‘This is what The Lord says: Wasn’t it enough that you killed Naboth? Must you rob him, too? Because you have done this, dogs will lick your blood at the very place where they licked the blood of Naboth!’”
20 “So, my enemy, you have found me!” Ahab exclaimed to Elijah. “Yes,” Elijah answered, “I have come because you have sold yourself to what is evil in The Lord’s sight.
21 So now The Lord says, ‘I will bring disaster on you and consume you. I will destroy every one of your male descendants, slave and free alike, anywhere in Israel!
22 I am going to destroy your family as I did the family of Jeroboam son of Nebat and the family of Baasha son of Ahijah, for you have made Me very angry and have led Israel into sin.’
23 “And regarding Jezebel, The Lord says, ‘Dogs will eat Jezebel’s body at the plot of land in Jezreel.’
24 “The members of Ahab’s family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the field will be eaten by vultures.”
25 (No one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in The Lord’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel.
26 His worst outrage was worshiping idols just as the Amorites had done—the people whom The Lord had driven out from the land ahead of the Israelites.)
27 But when Ahab heard this message, he tore his clothing, dressed in burlap, and fasted. He even slept in burlap and went about in deep mourning.
28 Then another message from The Lord came to Elijah:
29 “Do you see how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? Because he has done this, I will not do what I promised during his lifetime. It will happen to his sons; I will destroy his dynasty.”

Naboth's reply to the king was...
I Kings 21:3 “The Lord forbid that I should give you the inheritance that was passed down by my ancestors.”

Naboth, refused the king.
More fully explained, here again is the reason why Naboth “could not,” sell or permanently give away his land.

Leviticus 25:23 NLT (Be sure to read the whole chapter. See also Numbers 36:1-13, and Exodus 34:9.)
The land must never be sold on a permanent basis, for the land belongs to Me. You are only foreigners and tenant farmers working for Me.

Naboth could not, because God had commanded that all land remain with the original tribal owners.
Naboth had been faithful to The Lord, and with what result?

I Kings 21:13,14 NLT
13 “...So he was dragged outside the town and stoned to death.
14 The town leaders then sent word to Jezebel, “Naboth has been stoned to death.”

Oh no, Pastor you must have that wrong! Surely a man who does God's bidding will only be blessed!”

Matthew 16:24-27 NKJV
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son Of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

Surely some would think today, “What's the big deal, let the king have the vineyard, so what?” But it is a “big deal,” for whenever we loose sight of God's command and give “ground,” to the enemy, we not only placate him, we diminish our association with The Lord.

Matthew 6:24 NLT
No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Such a trite concern, a vineyard, and the temptations to sell off our “spiritual heritage” with The Lord, may well come as seemingly trite as well.

II Corinthians 6:14-18 NLT (God's Temple.)
14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can Light live with darkness?
15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of
The Living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be My people.
17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says The Lord.
Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
18 And I will be your Father, and you will be My sons and daughters, says The Lord Almighty.”

Naboth said “no,” to the king, but The Lord said “yes,” to Naboth, and in His kingdom, he forever remains.

Revelation 2:10,11 NLT
10 Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you
the crown of life.
11 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to The Spirit and understand what He is saying to the churches. Whoever is victorious will not be harmed by the second death.
