  The Disobedient Young Prophet Found Out The Hard Way What The Ministry Is Really All About

The disobedient young prophet was given a job to do by God, but he chose instead to listen to the voice of the old prophet who intentionally deceived him.

One of the things we talk about a lot in our Bible Studies is about finding the course that God has given you to do, making sure to complete and fulfill it before your time on this earth is through. For many, finding what that course is can be elusive, for it is only found in the ‘still small voice’ of God speaking to you. But once found, there will invariably arise individuals who will do their best to dissuade you from completing what God has called you to do. Oftentimes, it’s ‘friendly fire’ from within the camp.

“He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him.” 1 Kings 13:18 (KJV)

In 1 Kings, we see the shocking account of a young man of God, a prophet, who is called to do some specific things that the LORD has told him to accomplish. So why is that shocking? The shocking part comes when the young prophet meets up with the old prophet, and the old prophet lies to him to get him to not do what God has specifically called him to do. It ends worse than you might imagine, with the young prophet not only out of the ministry, but torn to pieces by a lion. Why did this happen? Because the young prophet listened to the old prophet instead of God, and in there we have one of the most powerful ‘ministry messages’ you will ever hear.
