1 Ki 22; Acts 7:17-end; Psalm 106:1-23
1 Kings 22 contains a familiar scenario. False prophets prophecy good things for the whereas the truthful prophet speaks of King Ahab’s end. In the power play, Zedekiah foreshadows the treatment of Christ – slapping Micaiah around the face and calling on his to prophesy. Thus here as in so many places we see the truth that all Scripture points us to Christ.
Micaiah’s reply also echoes one who is to come after him. Truthfulness and discernment of the Spirit is to be found ‘in the inner room’. The place where only God the Father sees and is present. When we have trouble discerning the Spirit – do we too go to our inner room. Indeed have we yet discovered it?
