Notes from tonight ... if you missed out! (UNVEILED 05/10/13)

1 Kings 22
Ahab decieded that he wanted to obtain an area of land and consults with Jehoshaphat king of Judah. Jehoshaphat demonstates his faith and trust in God through Jehoshaphat's inquiry of God's aproval of his actions. He also eximplifies his respect for the prophets and God's apointment of the prophets in his rebuking of the king of Israel speaking ill of God's prophets.
Most of the prophets that the king of Israel called upon were false prophets, kinda like yes men, that mearly supported the decisions of the King. Highly decorated and flashy prophets told Ahab that he will have victory.
The messenger sent to find Micaiah tries to presuade Micaiah to align with all of Ahab's false prophets; however, Micaiah replies curtly that "As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me that I speak"14.
Ahab calls Micaiah's bluff of agreeing with Ahab's wants to go and capture land. Using reverse psycology convinces Ahab to go try and take the land in Syria. Ahab gets upset and throws Micaiah in prision.

Ahab decides that in order to ensure that Micaiah's prophesy did not come true he would disguise himself as a common soldier. Even though Ahab had disguised himself he got shot and died, fufiling Micaiah's prophesy. All the soldiers disbanded and returned home

Breif history of the reign of Jehosephet
Do you surround yourself with false prophets, those who mearly support your decisions, or with people that have you best intrest at heart?
Have you ever told the truth even when it would cause difficult or uncomfortable situations?
