~ Avoid An Idea About An Idea
. . . He Said ,She Said Will Get You Dead
I Kings 13

Ruth Woman,  avoid an idea about an idea if God has already spoken. 
 What somebody said thought or assumed can cause your fall and even DEATH. SO WHY NOT TRUST HIM.
This Bible story is a great example of a person wanting to use their title or position to matter. 
One Prophet lied to another about the simplest thing and it caused the death of the other prophet who was actually a "Real" Prophet doing GOD's WILL. 
Are you on an assignment and GOD has given SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS and someone is whispering something else contrary to what you've been told.
This could happen on your job, relationally, family, business decisions and ministry.
We want so bad to have an opinion or a support system. We believe that GOD needs our help. But the truth is HE REALY DOESN'T. And after we tell one friend they tell two friends and so on and so on and so on. And we wonder why we haven't gotten an answer. Now it's delayed.  Our ANGELS are having to do extra warfare against the enemies and deliver our PROMISES, 
The friends that we gave all the information to is gossiping about it to 10 others and showing pictures on Facebook. 
Well I'm sure the older prophet maybe meant well inviting the other one to dinner. 
But real truth was revealed when he went as far as to LIE to get the prophet to dinner. 
He LIED, but the other prophet suffered. The other prophet DIED. 
Please TRUST GOD to MANAGE the things that HE has COMMANDED you to DO.
Go BACK and ask questions if your are not sure. Pray some more as my nephew says.
But get in the PRESENCE of the ALMIGHTY to complete the WORK that HE has BEGUN in you.

I Kings 13
By the word of the LORD a man of God came from Judah to Bethel, as Jeroboam was standing by the altar to make an offering. By the word of the LORD he cried
 out against the altar: “Altar, altar! This is what the LORD says: ‘A son named Josiah will be born to the house of David. On you he will sacrifice the priests of the high places who make offerings here, and human bones will be burned on you.’” That same day the man of God gave a
 sign: “This is the sign the LORD has declared: The altar will be split apart and the ashes on it will be poured out.”
When King Jeroboam heard what the
 man of God cried out against the altar at Bethel, he stretched out his hand from the altar and said, “Seize him!” But the hand he stretched out toward the man shriveled up, so that he could not pull it back. Also, the altar was split apart and
 its ashes poured out according to the sign given by the man of God by the word of the LORD.
Then the king said to the man of God,
 “Intercede with the LORD your God and pray for me that my hand may be restored.” So the man of God interceded with the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored and became as it was before.
The king said to the man of God, “Come
 home with me for a meal, and I will give you a gift.”
But the man of God answered the king,
 “Even if you were to give me half your possessions, I would not go with you, nor would I eat bread or drink water here. For I was commanded by the word of
 the LORD: ‘You must not eat bread or drink water or return by the way you came.’” So he took another road and did not
 return by the way he had come to Bethel.
Now there was a certain old prophet
 living in Bethel, whose sons came and told him all that the man of God had done there that day. They also told their father what he had said to the king.
father asked them, “Which way did he go?” And his sons showed him which road the man of God from Judah had taken. So he said to his sons, “Saddle
 the donkey for me.” And when they had saddled the donkey for him, he mounted it and rode after the man of God. He
 found him sitting under an oak tree and asked, “Are you the man of God who came from Judah?”
“I am,” he replied.
So the prophet said to him, “Come
 home with me and eat.”
The man of God said, “I cannot turn
 back and go with you, nor can I eat bread or drink water with you in this place.

The old prophet answered, “I too am a
 prophet, as you are. And an angel said to me by the word of the LORD: ‘Bring him back with you to your house so that he may eat bread and drink water.’” (But he was lying to him.)
returned with him and ate and drank in his house.

While they were sitting at the table, the
 word of the LORD came to the old prophet who had brought him back.
out to the man of God who had come from Judah, “This is what the LORD says: ‘You have defied the word of the LORD and have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you.

When the man of God had finished
 eating and drinking, the prophet who had brought him back saddled his donkey for

 him on the road and killed him, and his body was left lying on the road, with both the donkey and the lion standing beside it. Some people who passed by saw the
 body lying there, with the lion standing beside the body, and they went and reported it in the city where the old prophet lived.
When the prophet who had brought him
 back from his journey heard of it, he said, “It is the man of God who defied the word of the LORD. The LORD has given him over to the lion, which has mauled him and killed him, as the word of the LORD had warned him.”
The prophet said to his sons, “Saddle
 the donkey for me,” and they did so. Then he went out and found the body
 lying on the road, with the donkey and the lion standing beside it. The lion had neither eaten the body nor mauled the donkey. So the prophet picked up the
 body of the man of God, laid it on the donkey, and brought it back to his own city to mourn for him and bury him. Then he laid the body in his own tomb,
 and they mourned over him and said, “Alas, my brother!”
After burying him, he said to his sons,
 “When I die, bury me in the grave where the man of God is buried; lay my bones beside his bones.
