Here Charitable Individualism is the key!… nothing less.

Ahab’s Blunders!


Ahab exposed the underlingness of his subordinates before his Queen Jezebel.
Permitting the use of his seal, without him sealing the orders himself; thereby empowering and sharing his power and also shortening his own time for recall! It might seem like delegation, but it was sharing. Jezebel took hold of Ahab’s seal and whatever she wrangled out of Ahab during her pillow talks, she converted them into Regal proclamations and orders!
Ahab’s childish desire for land got him into trouble, Naboth’s vineyard and Ramoth Gilead. The man who defeated the Syrian Benhadad, became a shadow of his former self. Irony is that he uses the principle that even ancestral property from the hands of the legatee was subject to procurement by money or exchange and thereby denied the sanctity of a heritage; whereas, in the matter of ramoth gilead he relies on the same principle which he denied at home and says that Ramoth Gilead belonged historically to the Israelites. This double talking principles did him in.
Fourthly, Ahab did not show humility when Micaiah predicts disaster as Ahab did in the case of Naboth. In Naboth’s story he had contributed to the crime by having shared his Regal Authority with Jezebel. But in Ramoth Gilead he had not been specifically arraigned with any sin. Yet his arrogance and preconceived notion of Micaiah did Ahab in.
