Sermon Notes

The Story of Elijah - Counter Culture Smaller Website Banner

All alone with the Lord. Hiding in a cave on Mt. Sinai is where we last found the Prophet Elijah. He had fled from Jezreel for his life for fear of what wicked king Ahab and his vile wife Jezebel might do. Wishing for the Lord to take his life, it is fairly obvious from the Word of God that Elijah was not only feeling like a failure, but that he was depressed. 
Yet as we read in 1 Kings 19, the Lord is not done with Elijah, and He gives Elijah an opportunity to experience His power and presence with him on that mountain top. He gives him a three-fold command to anoint three men, two as kings, and Elisha to be his understudy. We would like to encourage you to turn in your bible to 1 Kings 19 and follow along as Pastor Anton teaches on what God’s calling is going to require for faithful servants. We hope and trust that you will be encouraged.
