Does God ever accomplish His goals through violent people? With figures like Jehu we wonder if this is sometimes the case. There are times when God’s wrath needs to be brought against people, for instance when God allows a sinful empire like Babylon to overtake Israel. In the case of Jehu, we wonder if maybe the idolatry was so intense that even a sinful person like Jehu can be an instrument of God’s good plan. Remember what people intend for evil, God can intend for good.
