The prophets #10

Tonights  Bible account involves 2  prophets  1st  A man of  God from Judah.  2nd  a certain  old prophet who lived in Bethel.    Both unnamed, we learn why later.   Prophet  1.  While  the King was standing by the sacrificial  Alter,  to make  Sacrifical  smoke,  prophet  1. Cried out to him,  ” o alter,, alter,, this is what YHWH  has said.  Look a son born. To the house of David, whose name is  Josiah.  And he will certainly sacrifice upon you (the  Alter )    the  Pagan priests that are  sacrificing.  Upon you now  and Burn their Bones.   And he gave a portent of which  YHWH has spoken:Look the Alter will be torn apart, and the fatty ashes  will be thrown to the ground.     THE King ordered his guards to  ” grab hold of Him  ”  the kings hand instantly  dried up and he could not move it.  And the alter was ripped apart, and the fatty ashes fell to the ground.    The King pleaded  to the man please  soften  please the face of YHWH. As regards my hand.  The man prayed to  YHWH. And the  Kings hand was restored.   The  King asks the man of the true god.(Prophet 1),  to his house for food and drink.  The man of the true god said even if you offered me half of your house , I would not go with you.  YHWH.  Exsplitly told me not to eat or drink on my journey, and you must   go home a different route,   so he started home on a different  route.   Enter  Prophet  #2…. Having  heard about the encounter, the old  Prophet. Sought out  the man of God . And persuaded  him to rest at his home and share ameal with his family .. saying for I am a Prophet also.  The man of the true God knew better,than  to go against YHWH COMMAND,  But he gave in.  While they were at evening meal. YHWH’s  spirit caused the old prophet, to  speak . Because you have rebelled against my order , your body will not  be buried with your fore fathers.  Freighted. the man of the true God left quickly.  Later. A Lion. killed him on the road.  When the old Prophet heard of it , he and his sons took the body back to    the old prophets. Home.  for Burial  And gave instructions to his  sons.    When I die, bury me with the man of God.   ( The man of God  fell victim to human reasoning , )   he thought it would be alright to  go home with the old prophet. Because  after all  he  was a prophet to .   But he HAD to obey GODS command, no matter who  tried to persuade him otherwise.  This  is a sad ending for these two men,  The man of god obeyed at first, but reasoning  rather than obedience, was a fatal mistake.  The old prophet, was  grief stricken,  and felt that when he dies, he should be with  the man of God  ..  The prophet Samuel once told a King who didn’t obey completely.   ” obediance. Is better than a sacrifice ”  agape love Terry.
