Then the king of Israel
gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said to
them, “Shall I go against Ramoth-gilead to battle or shall I
refrain?” And they said, “Go up, for the Lord will give it into the
hand of the king.” But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not yet a
prophet of the Lord here that we may inquire of him?” The king of
Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is yet one man by whom we may
inquire of the Lord, but I hate him, because he does not prophesy
good concerning me, but evil. He is Micaiah son of Imlah” (1 Kings
22:6-8). "There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in
court and detest the one who tells the truth" (Amos 5:10).
"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate
to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world
cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But
you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you" (John
14:16,17). Listen to this message.
