(There’s a difference between true prophets & those that are false.)
King Ahab wanted Jehoshaphat to join him in battle because it was obvious that God’s favor was upon Jehoshaphat. However, Jehoshaphat told King Ahab that he would join him but he wanted to consult the Lord. Well, Ahab had four hundred prophets telling him that it was all good, that he would go to Ramothgilead and prosper. Four hundred!
Jehoshaphat asked if there was another prophet and Ahab told him that there was one other man. He didn’t want to call this man because he claimed that all he ever did was speak evil concerning him. You know the kind, those doom and gloom, negative ppl. They can’t be of God. Smh.
They called this prophet, Micaiah but when they asked him, he told the king that he would die. Ahab was angry. He said, “I told you, he never has anything good to say about me!” Micaiah told the king that God sent a lying spirit to all of his prophets to entice him. That he may go and fall at Ramothgilead.
One of the men was so heated that he hit Micaiah. Micaiah said, “If you come back in peace then surely God did not speak through me.” Don’t worry, God will prove what He said. If it’s not God it will not happen, so why stress? God always confirms. Also note here that it was WISE to seek out men & women of Adonai for godly counsel.
Now, Ahab thought he was slick, he disguised himself and went into battle. You know, incase Micaiah was a witch and was trying to speak evil on him or something, smh. Don’t you know that not even Satan could touch Job without God’s permission? These lying spirits had to get permission.
Some soldier carelessly released his bow and it went directly into Ahab and he died. The guy wasn’t even aiming at him. Four hundred prophets said that it would be well! One said that it would not and he was branded false. Watch them numbers! Straight and narrow or broad and wide? There are mega churches for a reason and it’s sure not the harvest.
