Nobody could enter in the palace without permission of king. King Ahab was very proud, egoistic feelings because of his beautiful palace and richness of it.

Suddenly one day a strange man entered into the palace and said to King Ahab “there shall not be dew or rain there three years” thus says the God of Israel. As soon as this strange man said and walkout of the palace but king Ahab came into stress and because of it he commanded his guards to kill the strange man who dare to enter into his palace and said like this.
