A simple strategy: Building Blocks
1. For three years there was no war between Aram and Israel
2. Then during the third year, King Jehoshaphat of Judah went to visit King Ahab of Israel.
3. During the visit, the king of Israel said to his officials, Do you realize that the town of Ramoth-gilead belongs to us? And yet we've done nothing to recapture it from the king of Aram!
4. Then he turned to Jehoshaphat and asked "Will you join me in battle to recover Ramoth-gilead?
Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, "Why, of course! You and I are as one. My troops are your troops, and my horses are your horses."
5. Then Jehoshaphat added, "But first let's find out what the LORD says."
6. So the king of Israel summoned the prophets, about 400 of them, and asked them, "Should I go to war against Ramoth-gilead, or should I hold back?"
7. But Jehoshaphat asked, "Is there not also a prophet of the LORD here? We should ask him the same question."
8. The king of Israel replied to Jehoshaphat, "There is one more man who could consult the LORD for us, but I hate him He never prophesies anything but trouble for me! His name is Micaiah son of Imlah."
Jehoshaphat replied, "That's not the way a king should talk! Let's hear what he has to say."
9. So the king of Israel called one of his officials and said, "Quick! Bring Micaiah son of Imlah."
