The prophet Micaiah related the Word of the Lord to kings Ahab and Jehoshaphat. Did he (Micaiah) really see the Lord and the host of heaven, or was this a vision?:

1 Kings 22:20-21: 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 Him on His right and on His left. The LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’"

If the "spirit that came forward" was about to deceive Ahab, could it really have been an angel?


1 Kings 22:

13The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.”

14 But Micaiah said, “As surely as the Lord lives, I can tell him only what the Lord tells me.”

Micaiah heard and saw revelations from the Lord in his spirit, on some occasions in real-time.

  • Perhaps we are to view Micaiah's message as somewhat analogous to John's in the Book of Revelation as he (John) "was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day"? – Xeno May 18 at 22:04
  • There was one significant difference: John was alone. – Tony Chan May 19 at 13:55
