The danger of believing a lie is death. 1 King’s 13:1-34, 1 King’s 26-28
You cannot have your way with God’s way. Everything was going according to plan for the man of God from Judah but there is a trap.
1. After a great success, we tend to relax. The prophet from Judah was still procrastinating by sitting under the oak tree instead of proceeding to his city.
2. If the old prophet was a good prophet God would have sent him
The young prophet fell into the trap of Godly man not an unbeliever. The word of God is simple, don’t complicate it.
Read the word of God to confirm everything that is being said on the alter or by any preacher. 2 Tim 2:15
One lie was good enough to kill the young prophet.
What is the lie you are believing in?
If the man had returned to Judah safe, maybe Jeroboam would have changed. But because the lion killed the prophet, Jeroboam might have thought that the prophet wasn’t real.
We shouldn’t just read the word of God but meditate on the word of God.
If you don’t have time to meditate on the word of God, your priority is messed up.
