I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.

1Kings 13:1 And, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah by the word of the LORD unto Bethel: and Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense.1Kings 13:2 And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men’s bones shall be burnt upon thee.
Kings 13 videos-
ON VIDEO- [Teaching below]
.Prophet pronounces judgment on authority
.The same dynamic in my current Acts study
.Authority figure goes after the prophet
.The authority figure gets judged
.The prophet prays for him
.The false prophet shows up
.Did he know he was prophesying a lie?
.Or was he just comfortable with religious ‘speak’?
.The money gospel
.Death Penalty case
I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
NOTE- I commented on the death penalty case of a brother of a girl I know- At the time I made this video- I thought there were 2 different brothers that were put to death. I have since commented about it on my roll-outs and clarified it- this person who was put to death had a stay of execution in 2015- he was put to death later- the same brother.
I taught this chapter years ago and will post that below.
TEACHING [Past posts below]
Just a few notes-
We see a young prophet speak the Word of the Lord to Jeroboam- and it comes to pass now- and then.
Yes- there was the sign of the broken altar that happened this day- and some 300 years later the person the younger prophet spoke about- by name- Josiah- will fulfill the rest of the prophecy.
We also see an older prophet- who will ‘prophesy ‘a lie.
The older prophet might have even believed the lie- but it was not the Word of the Lord.
I shared how this dynamic is seen in our day- with some TV preachers who seem to say ‘the Lord is saying…’- and it usually applies to calling their phone line- and giving money- on some sort of a deadline.
I think they do not see they have become too comfortable saying ‘the Lord says’- and in this chapter that’s what we see with the older prophet.
Yet he will also prophesy the truth- which was a judgment on the younger prophet- for listening to the false prophecy of the older prophet!
Yes- the old prophet will actually function in the true gift of prophecy- right after he ‘functioned ‘in a false one.
These are just a few things I covered on the video- I’m not even sure if I taught that in my past teachings below-
I usually just add those sections from my old teachings- and don’t have time to review them.
God bless all-
