Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks and he called her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. I Kings 17:10

    Elijah is obeying the voice of the Lord, going to Zarephath, and lo there is the widow that Jehovah God had promised to take care of him. She was gathering sticks, which was symbolic of her faithfulness to the will of God in her life. So the man of God asks her to Fetch him a little water in a vessel. Which was symbolic of little is much when placed in the Master's hand. Elijah is a broken vessel poured out on the sanctuary of the grace of God. We have to take little steps in obedience to do the will of God in our lives. Never look down on the little things that God will ask of us along the way, for it all has a purpose in the master's hand. Jesus is the water of life, and when we have Him, we have all that we need. Just cry out to Jesus now, and say fill my cup with your water of life dear Lord. How wonderful it is when we are filled with His water to do His will in our lives. So drink today from the hand of Jesus and despise not the day of little things.

  • #And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. I Kings 17:8,9

    Jehovah answers Elijah and provides a place for him to go to escape the drought and look to a widow woman who is to sustain him. Elijah has learned the important principle of waiting on the Lord for direction, and not to get ahead of God, or blame Him for his trouble. How we need to learn this principle, for this is where we live our day to day lives trusting in Jehovah to sustain us. Trust in the Lord and do good and verily thou shalt be fed. David said I have been young and old, not once have I seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread. Just pray for the Lord to show you His glory and He will. Elijah is a man just like us. Thank God for this example in scripture He has given us to look to in our day to day lives. Have faith in God. For without faith, it is impossible to please Him. 

  • #And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. I Kings 17:7

    Where do we go when the brook drys up? Elijah is obeying the Lord God and the Ravens have been bringing him food, and the brook provided water. But now the brook has dried up and the Ravens have finished their duty. This is a perplexing question that we have to answer in life, for things can be going well when you obey the voice of the Lord, and then trouble gets in the way. We serve an on time God, who can use the miraculous to provide for his people. Elijah commanded that it not rain, because of the sin in the land, and even though he has not sinned, he too is perplexed by what God is doing. The answer to this question is always the same, and that is to wait on the Lord for the next direction. Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up up with wings as an eagle, they will run and not faint, they shall walk and not grow weary. So if you find yourself in a similar situation as Elijah is, then wait I say upon the Lord. Our God is never late, and never early, He is an on time God. Just whisper a prayer in the morning, Whisper a prayer at noon, whisper a prayer in the evening, for Jesus is on the main line, tell him what you want. Our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than we can ask or think. Just trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thine pathway. Elijah is not afraid, because he knows the same God who sent the Ravens to feed him and the brook to give him drink, will provide when they are gone. Our God can do anything but fail, so trust in Him. The key is to fear not, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a sound mind. Wait I say upon the Lord and He shall sustain you, for He will not suffer the righteous to be moved. It may be you are in a bad marriage, and your mate has left you. Wait I say upon the Lord, for He has promised never to leave you or to forsake you. Wait I say upon the Lord and be of good courage.

  • #And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom, I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence and turn thee eastward and hide thyself by the brook Cherith that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. I Kings 7:1-4

    The word of Jehovah came upon Elijah, to tell Ahab, that it will not be dew or rain for these years until I say. So Jehovah commanded Elijah to go to the brook Cherith, where He would command the ravens to feed him. What a mighty God we serve, that even the Ravens obey His every command. So Ahab is afraid of Elijah, but Elijah trusts in Jehovah for his daily bread from the Ravens.

  • #And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years. And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him. And it came to pass as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of an Ethbaal king of the Zidonians and went and served Baal and worshiped him. I Kings 16:29-31

    Ahab is the most wicked king that Israel had, and Jezebel became the most wicked queen that Israel had. They served Baal with their 450 prophets and caused Israel to sin, such that the prophet Elijah had to challenge the people whether they would serve Jehovah or Baal. No one names their daughter Jezebel, because of the wicked reputation this name has. Yet Ahab was a puppet on the strings of his wicked wife. She used him to cause Israel to sin a great sin against Jehovah God, such the prophet Elijah had to shut up the heavens for three and one-half years from the rain. This is a great lesson to fathers how important it is to raise your daughters up in the fear of the Lord so that they will not become a Jezebel. The Church at Thyatira learned about the spirit of Jezebel, and the damage that it can do to the leaders of the Church. Keep thy heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life.

  • #Now the rest of the acts of Zimri and his treason that he wrought, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? Then were the people of Israel divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king and half followed Omri. I Kings 16:20,21

    Israel was divided over who should be king so Omri prevailed against the people that followed Tibni so Tibni died and Omri reigned. But Omri wrought evil in the eyes of the LORD and did worse that all that were before him. So Omri slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria and Ahab his son reigned in his stead. This apostasy that Israel is under will get worse under Ahab, such that Elijah will have to come on the seen to provoke the people to return to the living God Jehovah.

  • #For all the sins of Baasha and the sins of Elah his son, by which they sinned and by which he made Israel sin, in provoking the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities. Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? I Kings 16:13,14

    The household of Baasha has caused Israel to sin, in provoking Jehovah God to anger with their vanities. So the people are about to reap what they sowed and get a more wicked king in Ahab. All we like sheep have gone astray and the Lord laid on Him, Jesus the iniquity of us all. That is why we call Him Jesus, for He came to save His people from their sins. Sow to the spirit and you will reap life eternal in Jesus Christ. 

  • #In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years. And his servant Zimri, captain of half his chariots, conspired against him, as he was in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza steward of his house in Tirzah. I Kings 16:8,9

    Wine is a mocker and strong drink deceiving, whoever drinks is not wise. Elah is about to become a casualty of the sin of alcoholism. So many have been slain by this sin and it is the most accepted in society. And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead. Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which He spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet. We see one bad king after another comes to power and does worst than the other. The sins of the fathers are passed to the children to the third generation. Only through obedience can these generational curses be broken. Pray for your family to walk in the ways of Jehovah and to keep His commandments. Then the Lord will be merciful to your seed.

  • #Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanni against Baasha, saying, Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust and made thee prince over my people Israel and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins; Behold, I will take away the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat. I Kings16:1-3

    Jehovah God will visit the sins of Jeroboam upon the house of Baasha because he caused Israel to sin. He that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat and him that dieth of his in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat. So Baasha slept with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah and Elah his son reigned in his stead. Our God is a consuming fire and it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

  • #Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah; none was exempted and they took away the stones of Ramah and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha had built and king Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin and Mizpah. The rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might and all he did and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the kings of Judah? Nevertheless, in the time of his old age, he was diseased in his feet. And Asa slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead. I Kings 15:22-24

    The wisdom of Asa and how he ended the wars with Baasha was evident. Yet in his old age he became ill in his feet, probably had diabetes. He had a righteous son in Jehoshaphat to reign after he passed. Yet Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah and reigned over Israel two years. He did evil in the sight of the LORD and walked in the way of his father and in his sin wherewith, he made Israel sin Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him and reigned in his stead.
