Elijah, Man of God (Part 12)

We have been considering the call of Elisha. It almost seemed as though he was about to reject the call because he wanted to go and “kiss my father and mother goodbye.” As we saw yesterday with Jesus, this could mean a refusal to go into ministry until the parents have died! Elisha had in […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 11)

Some people love working, some don’t mind working and others hate working. This thing is that if you don’t work, you don’t earn money and you can’t survive. More than that, God created us to work and after the Genesis Chapter three’s fall into sin, work would be hard. Ge 3:17 To Adam he said, […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 10)

It’s one thing to be called to be a Christian, and another thing being called into Christian service or ministry. I’m very aware that many today do not believe in “a call to Christian Ministry”. That is their prerogative, though personally I believe in a call. I had a good career, established as a family […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 6)

One of the most exciting passages in the Bible is 1 Kings 18. It is filled with action, but not the sort of a movie thriller … rather one of the Real Deity, Yahweh stamping His authority and superiority as the “Only, True God”. So far we have seen Elijah, God’s prophet challenge the 450 […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 5)

Why was Elijah able to challenge the 450 prophets of Baal to prove who the true God is? We might say that the answer to this question is his confidence in his God. This might be true, but where did he get this confidence in his God from? Elijah Knew Sweet Communion With his God […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 4)

Yesterday we saw how Elijah challenged the 450 prophets of Baal to prove who the true God is … their Baal or his Jehovah. Today we shall see his confidence in his God. Elijah’s relationship and knowledge of his God is so impressive that he is able to offer Baal’s prophets first shot at getting […]

Elijah, Man of God (Part 3)

Elijah was a man whose character pleased the Lord so much that he was given Divine Power for ministry. Although sin was rife before and after Elijah, the present time was extraordinary. It was unprecedented regarding the amount of idol veneration. We have already seen the volume of this largely due to the wickedness of […]
