Elijah, from Gilead to mount Carmel (introduction)
John T.L. Maasbach
In this introduction to the source of Elijah's strength, John T.L. paints the picture of the wicked time Elijah was living in. Ahab, who hated the God of Israel; Jezebel, his evil queen; the false prophets and the true prophets of God who were slaughtered or hiding. Doesn't this situation hold similarities for us today? When we have prayed everything we know to pray, God starts working and He is preparing you for your mount Carmel moment!
