Elijah #2

Prophecy of Second coming of Christ preceded by Elijah (Mal 4:1-6). Jesus read a prophecy concerning his earthly ministry in Nazareth (Isa 61:1-2a, Luk 4:16-29). Between Isaiah 61 verse 2a and 2b is the Church Age. Prophets who taught or wrote; Elijah was a prophet of prayer. (Jam 5:16-18). Elijah was a man of the word (1Ki 17:1-7); obedience (1Ki 17:8-16); prayer (1Ki 17:17-24). The will of God: where does God want me to be (1Ki 17:5-7); what does God what me to do? (1Ki 17:9); what is the motivation for my action? God sent Elijah to Zarephath because only there was a receptive woman (1Ki 17 8-16). We need to be willing to step out in faith; to believe God; then we'll see or experience God's grace and mercy (Isa 30:18). God removes the men with message from the country that rejects Him. Nations will be divided based on their attitude toward His word (Mat 25:31-46, Luk 12:42).

Elijah's life shows us the keys to spiritual power: the power of God's Word faith prayer revival and failure.
