A woman tries to deceive a blind prophet and this is what happened next…

And Jeroboam’s wife did so, and arose, and went to Shiloh, and came to the house of Ahijah. But Ahijah could not see; for his eyes were set by reason of his age (1 Kings 14:4 KJV)

why trouble ye the woman showing a woman holding her head

God used prophet Ahijah to give Jeroboam a prophetic word that he was to be king of Israel in Solomon’s days. However, when Jeroboam became king, he made golden calves for Israel to worship, and it was a horrible sin for the entire nation. He turned his back against God. However, when his son became seriously ill, he remembered God and wanted a miracle. By this time, Ahijah was very old and was blind because of age. Jeroboam sent his wife and asked her to go to Ahijah by night and to disguise herself so that the prophet will not physically recognize her.

She did not know though Ahijah was physically blind, he was a prophet of God, and his spiritual eyes were wide open. As Jeroboam’s wife approached Ahijah’s house, before she knocked on the door, Ahijah spoke to her from inside the house and asked her why she has disguised herself!

We cannot play tricks with God. He does not see as human beings do. He knows us so thoroughly that every single strand of hair on our head has a unique number that God knows! ( Matt. 10:30). How we need such vision for God’s servants in these days of all-time high levels of deception in the house of the Lord!


Did Jeroboam think about the possibility that Ahijah could know by the Spirit though he was physically blind?


When dealing with God’s servants, know you are dealing with the Lord Himself. Many of our pastors today s might not be discerning like Ahijah, but know the Lord knows us well. We should not attempt to play tricks with Him in our Christian lives or ministry. 


Ask the Father to help you be sincere and honest in your walk with Him.
