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.

  • #And Elijah said unto Ahab, get thee up. eat and drink, for there is the sound of abundance of rain. I Kings 18:41

    Jehovah God has used Elijah to show a mighty move of God in the land of Israel, in which there had been Baal worship. Now God wants Ahab to thank Him for sending the abundance of rain, by eating and drinking that abundance. We need to give thanks to God every day for the abundance that comes when we prioritize prayer in our lives and give God the glory for what He is doing. Rain is a blessing and we see how many things are affected when rain does not come, and now that the people have repented of their sin, now the abundance of rain can come with many blessings. Elijah is a man of prayer and God used his prayer to hold back the rain for three and a half years. Now God is using Elijah's prayer to send abundant rain. Take time to be prayerful and thankful in your life for what God is doing by sending rain in your life. Let the abundance of rain bless you to eat, drink and be thankful in your life by giving God all the glory that He alone deserves. It may be that you were once living in sin, and now you have repented of the Baal worship in your life, and now God wants to send the abundance of rain. Let it rain showers of blessing in your life, as well as the lives of others that God is going to use you to bless. It is my prayer that you will walk in obedience to the will of God in your life every day by sanctifying the Lord God in your heart giving Him the glory that He alone is worthy of leaving the Baal worship behind, following the commandments of God daily. Do this and you will be blessed just as the Lord blessed the people of God in the days of Elijah.

  • #And  Elijah said unto them, take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon and slew them there. I Kings 18:40

    Jehovah God He is Lord and the people are convinced now, so Elijah orders them to bring all the prophets of Baal to the brook Kishon where he slew every one of them. What a mighty God we serve, and there is no God but Jehovah. Let all the people praise Him.

  • #Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice and the wood, and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and they said, the LORD, He is the God; the LORD, He is the God. I Kings 18:38,39

    Jehovah God has just answered the prayer of Elijah in a mighty way to demonstrate that He is the true God in all of Israel and that Elijah is His servant. The people fell on their faces repented of their sins and turned to the living God. What a great move of God, how we need to see the Lord move today among His people. If we would have the faith of Elijah, then God would answer our prayer for revival too. Oh that the people of God will turn from their sins and declare that the Lord He is God and forsake Baal. It is my prayer that ministers will preach the uncompromising Word of God so that the people of God will hear and believe.

  • #And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel and that I am thy servant and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that these people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their hearts back again. I Kings 18:36,37

    Elijah is bearing his heart in prayer to Jehovah God to hear him, so the people of Israel will know that Jehovah is the true and the living God in Israel. As well as that he is the servant of the highest God. Elijah is a man like us who cries out to God at the time of the evening sacrifice and he will be heard because of his child-like faith.

  • #And he put the wood in order and cut the bullock in pieces and laid him on the wood and said, fill four barrels with water and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood. And he said to do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said to do it a third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran about the altar and he filled the trench also with water. I Kings 18:33-35

    Elijah is water proofing the altar so there will be no doubt that Jehovah God is the God who answers by fire. What an amazing sight this must have been. Praise God that we serve the God who answers by fire and is all together wonderful. Next time you find yourself in a situtation where you need God to answer, then walk by faith as Elijah did.

  • #And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. I Kings 18:32 

    Elijah is giving all the glory to Jehovah God by making the trench for the altar so that the fire of God can swoop in upon all the two measures of seed, so the children of Israel will know who the true living God is. Elijah is walking by faith because he knows the Lord will honor his faith in the word of God. We too must live a life of faith if we are going to please God.

  • #And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying Israel shall be thy name: I Kings 18:31

    Elijah repairs the altar with twelve stones after the names of Jacob sons, and this is the beginning for Jehovah God to restore Israel into proper relation.

  • #And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD, that was broken down. I Kings 18:30

    After the prophets of Baal have made a complete fool of themselves, then Elijah calls the people to come near unto him so that he can repair the altar that was broken down. When people forsake the Lord God Jehovah, then the altar in their life is broken down and only Jehovah God can repair it. As we celebrate Father's Day today I want to challenge fathers to repair the relationships between their children that has been broken down. Honor thy father and thy mother all the days of thy life and it will be well with thee, is the promise of the fifth commandment. Too many children are not in the right relationships because the altar has been torn down in their heart. Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Forgive your earthly father, and come to your Heavenly Father, who will make all things new in your life. Let Him repair the altar in your heart that was broken down.

  • #Let them give us two bullocks and let them choose one bullock for themselves and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood and put no fire under and I will dress the other bullock and lay it on wood, and put no fire under. And call ye on the name of your gods and I will call on the name of the LORD and the God that answereth by fire, let Him be God. And all the people said it is well spoken. I Kings 18:23,24

    Elijah is giving the pattern for the true and the living God to answer by fire. For our, God is a consuming fire. What a day that must have been, to see how those prophets of Baal were crying all day for Baal to answer. Elijah played with them and said peradventure he is sleeping, cry a little louder! This is not the way the true, and the living God answers. For we only need to whisper a prayer to Him to be heard. This is a lesson to us that if we find ourselves in a situation where we are yelling for God, we need to step back and listen to that still quiet voice of the Holy Spirit. Elijah is going to prove to all the people who the true and living God is so that the people will choose who to follow. The prophets of Baal cried aloud and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. What a display of futility by the prophets of Baal. That just shows what futility life is when you forsake the true and the living God, for Baalim who is no god. So I pray that you will stop today and ask yourself, how long will I run from God? Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked man forsake his ways and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Then return to the Lord your God who is ever merciful.

  • #So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel and gathered the prophets together unto Mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God,  follow Him, but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then Elijah said unto the people, I even I, only remain a prophet of the LORD, but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men. I Kings 18:20-22

    The Elijah complex is birthed in this passage, as he believes that he is the only prophet left that is not following Baal. So Elijah challenges the people with this great question: How long halt ye between two opinions? People will often try to straddle the fence when it comes to deciding who to follow. No one can have two masters. Either he will love the one while hating the other. God is a jealous God and requires our total allegiance. So make your decision sure today by forsaking Baal, and following the Lord Jesus Christ. For broad is the road that leads to destruction and many are there on that path. Yet narrow is the road that leads to life and few be there on that road. Do not say everybody is doing it, so it must be ok. Elijah has to have a decision so that he can send rain upon the land. God has to have your decision so that He can save your soul. What shall a man profit, if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul? There is nothing in this world that you can exchange for your soul. No amount of money will pay for your soul. Take heed to the words of the true prophet of God, and stop halting between two opinions. It is my prayer that you will turn from your sins to the living God and a time of refreshing will come over you.
