The Idea Behind it:
This illustration deals with the recorded account that involves the
prophet from Judah, and the first king of Israel's Northern Kingdom
Jeroboam. It's at this point, we find God sending a message to Jeroboam. This was a message that was dealing with Jeroboam's idolatry. God would send this message through a prophet, He'd called from out of Judah:
"O 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 priest of the high places who now 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.'" -- 1 Kings 13:2,3
However, after Jeroboam had heard the message from the prophet, the king
stretched out his hand, and pointed to the prophet of God. It would be
at this time, Jeroboam would order his guards to seize the prophet, and
arrest him. But immediately after the king had given this order, his
hand had shriveled up, so much so, he could not withdraw it back.
And because of the new affliction that was brought against him; Jeroboam pleaded with the prophet. For the king pleaded for him, to pray to the God that the prophet was serving, so that his hand could be restored. The prophet would indeed humble himself, as he prayed to God, on Jeroboam's behalf. The prophet prayed that the king's hand would be restored. And after the prophet had finished his prayer, God immediately restored Jeroboam's hand.
