1 Kings 22; 2 Kings 1-2

King Ahab wanted to take back Ramoth in Gilead from the king of Syria. So when Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went to visit him, Ahab asked him to go into battle with him and Jehoshaphat agreed. However, Jehoshaphat wanted to inquire from the LORD first. So they called all the prophets who supported King Ahab in his desire to go to war. But Jehoshaphat still wanted to make sure and asked if there was any other prophet they could inquire of. Ahab mentioned the prophet Micaiah even though he knew Micaiah never prophesied anything good about him. When Micaiah arrived he had already been shown a vision concerning the false prophets and saw how king Ahab would die in battle if he went. However, they ignored his warning and did what they wanted to do. So Ahab went to battle against the will of the LORD and died there just as prophesied. On the other hand, when the LORD was about to take Elijah to heaven, He told Elisha about it and he kept it in his heart. He followed Elijah everywhere. When Elijah asked Elisha what he would do for him, Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's spirit. Elijah said that he would have it if he saw him go to heaven. The chariot of fire came and took Elijah away and Elisha saw him and got what he requested. Be careful what you listen to. Obey the Lord and prosper and remain blessed.
