Book of KINGS 22: 1-38
God Allows Confusion
As satan Serves God
Following is a perfect example of said Divine behavior (1 Kings
22:1-38), although many others could be found in the Old and New
Testaments. God has never been short in giving mankind admonishments
and assistance; the problem has apparently been that:
"The good Lord sets definite limits
on man's wisdom but sets no limits on his stupidity - with Adam and Eve
at the lead."
Book of KINGS 22: 1-38
1 And they continued three years without war between Syria and Israel.
2 And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of
Judah came down to the king of Israel. 3 And the king of Israel said
unto his servants, Know ye that Ramoth in Gilead is ours, and we be
still, and take it not out of the hand of the king of Syria? 4 And he
said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramothgilead?
And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people
as thy people, my horses as thy horses.
5 And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Inquire, I pray thee,
at the word of the Lord today. 6 Then the king of Israel gathered the
prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I
go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said,
Go up; for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the king...
10 And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on
his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance
of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.
11 And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he
said, Thus saith the Lord, With these shalt thou push the Syrians,
until thou have consumed them. 12 And all the prophets prophesied so,
saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the Lord shall deliver
it into the king's hand...
14 And Micaiah said, As the Lord liveth, what the Lord saith unto me,
that will I speak. 15 So he came to the king. And the king said unto
him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we
17 And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep
that have not a shepherd: and the Lord said, These have no master: let
them return every man to his house in peace. 18 And the king of Israel
said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no
good concerning me, but evil? 19 And he said, Hear thou therefore the
word of the Lord:
the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by
him on his right hand and on his left. 20 And the Lord said, Who shall
persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said
on this manner, and another said on that manner. 21 And there came
forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade
him. 22 And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go
forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.
And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and
23 Now therefore, behold, the Lord
hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the
Lord hath spoken evil concerning thee.
24 But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on
the cheek, and said, Which way went the spirit of the Lord from me to
speak unto thee? 25 And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that
day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself. 26 And
the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him back unto Amon the
governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son; 27 And say, Thus
saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread
of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace. 28
And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the Lord hath not
spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you.
29 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to
35 And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his
chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of
the wound into the midst of the chariot. 36 And there went a
proclamation throughout the host about the going down of the sun,
saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country. 37 So
the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in
38 And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs
licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the
Lord which he spake.
