Synopsis     1Kings 13:34-14:8     5/14/2019 

King Jeroboam had a son. His name was Abijah. And Abijah was sick with a serious illness.  

So, Jeroboam instructed his wife to travel in disguise to Shiloh. Once there, he told her to find the prophet Ahijah. In accordance with the king’s instructions, she went. 

Meanwhile, God spoke to Ahijah. Specifically, God informed Ahijah that the king’s wife was coming and He told him how to respond to her inquiry.

Jeroboam Searching for Answers 

Jeroboam wanted to know what would happen for his son. And he knew that Ahijah the prophet might know. However, he could not be seen seeking out a prophet of God because the prophets had condemned his newly formed religion. 

So, he sent his wife. She was desperate for an answer. And so, she agreed to travel in disguise to meet the prophet.  

Everybody’s Searching for Answers 

Everyone is searching for answers. Everyone wants to know the truth.  

Jesus once said, “Seek and you shall find…” 

So, that’s the admonition. If I seek, I will find. Anyone who wants to know the truth will eventually find Jesus.  

“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
