Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Of Hosts - The ANGEL Of The LORD - The Fear Of God - The Providential Sovereignty Of God
Then [Micaiah] said, "Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by, on His right hand and on His left. "And the LORD said, 'Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?' So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner.
1 Kings 22:19-20
One of the most terrifying facets of God’s nature is the extent of His control. God can do what He pleases, and also Has the power and wisdom to influence people to do what He wants as well. God often exercises His control over the spirit realm to influence the thinking of people in the physical world. Ahab was an evil king that was prideful against God. God declared judgment against Ahab in a manner in which, Ahab would seem to be the author of his own demise. God appointed an angel to influence Ahab’s mind, being persuaded into a battle that would cause his death. God doesn’t need an army to do what He wants. This is scary indeed!
