My wife caught this little tidbit and I wanted to it share it with others.
1 Kings 18:41-46
41 And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
42 So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,
43 And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
44 And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’ hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot , and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.
45 And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
46 And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
Now from my limited understanding that from the context of this passage, Elijah, with the hand of the LORD, ran before Ahab to Jezreel even with Ahab in a chariot. Anything is possible with the LORD. Any comments are appreciated.
Last Friday, I finished Revelation. I am now going through the process of taking the verses I found, categorizing them (I did this mainly during my study) and putting like verses together on my computer. My ETA for releasing this study will be in 2 weeks, Lord willing of course. I first plan to make in available in Word and PDF and eventually online in html. I am very excited in publishing this study because I have learned so much and I pray it will benefit many others also. I hope it can be an effective tool when dealing with God-manifest-in-the-flesh deniers like the Jehovah Witnesses and other cults. The format I am shooting for is as follows:
1. Brief introduction describing the purpose of the study
2. Easy, category-based layout showing the verses describing the LORD and then the parallel verse shared by our Lord Jesus Christ.
3. I might include rhetorical questions that should make the Christ-deniers use their brain.
I have found a few studies on-line but from what I can recall they didn’t try to cover the whole bible. I will admit I might have missed some verses, so please feel free to offer suggestions. I wanted to collect a mountain of evidence and also see for myself what the OT had to say about it. What really struck me was the little mentioned things like Jesus knowing the thoughts of men, which is something I didn’t pick up on the first few times or didn’t really fully understand the context and implications.
This story talks about the woman who was abducted by the courthouse killer and how she discussed God with him. Please pray that this man finds Christ and answers the call of the Holy Spirit.
