2 Kings 17:7 And they burned their sons and their daughters as offerings, and used divination and sorcery, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger.
What was Ahab thinking? I would never sacrifice my child to the altar of Baal.
1 Kings 16:30. And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that [were] before him.
Take notice of every word. Ahab did evil in the sight of the LORD. It was obviously not evil in his own sight.
1 Kings 16:31 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,
It was a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam. Read the rest of this entry →

Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
God will give this planet the spirit of Elijah. We examine it was not Elijah himself, but the Elijah people who shall see the coming of the son of man. was Jesus standing with two men one on each side. Who were they? Moses and Elijah. Did that not mean the coming of Jesus with his saints? Moses represents those who died in the faith. Elijah represents the 144,000, the people that will be alive at his coming. Does Moses represent the Elijah people also? Yes.
Everything we have studied hails back to everything in the beginning, the old paths. The Elijah people who are proclaiming the old paths, is it not the same as the beginning where you see Jacob, Abraham and Moses? All the different historical events speak of the message of Elijah. Whether the people are represented by Moses or Elijah what do they all represent by the messages that Elijah represents? The people of Elijah are all the faithful people. They have given the messages to the world. Read the rest of this entry →

Zephaniah 2:1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; 2 Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
We are called upon to prepare for the Sabbath. We should be preparing for the coming of the Lord Jesus. Once the Sabbath is come, you can’t prepare for it anymore. We are reminded during the week to prepare. We are getting near the end and sometimes along the way and people fall away because it gets too hard. We look with sorrow at that. Let us lift up our heart and voice in expression of gratitude. First with the word Ebenezer. It means herewith the Lord has helped us.
Psalm 117:1 O Praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
I look forward to that day when they crown him Lord of Lords. Their joy will be unsullied by negative experiences. We can already look forward to that time. However it is a preparation time. Read the rest of this entry →

Our present message is to understand how the Elijah people will function under the spirit of Elijah.
Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
In our previous study we came to an appreciation of how the Bible qualifies the people of Elijah at this time just before the great day of the Lord. This speaks of the time we now live.
Mathew 24:44 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
