Springing Forward and Light


Please be advised, I have not stopped memorizing Hebrews, and I hope you are continuing as well. Just stopped posting about it. Life sometimes gets in the way…  Like today, when Daylight Savings Time began. I hope it has you Springing Forward with the extra day light.

Our pastor is preaching about Elijah. Did you know the Bible doesn’t tell us anything about Elijah, except that he was a Tishbite? I was surprised to learn that he was a nobody, essentially coming out of nowhere, doing what he was not asked by God to do.

Why haven’t I heard this before? It’s such a great encouragement to know that God used a ‘nobody’ for His glory. Especially when things didn’t turn out the way Elijah hoped. My pastor suggests that Elijah was going for revival when he took on King Ahab’s prophets of Baal at the top of Mount Carmel.

Revival, no. Being hunted by Queen Jezebel’s bounty hunters, yes.

And before that he wanted to show the widow woman how mighty his God is, only to have her son die. But wait. Wasn’t that just what she needed to bring her to faith in God? Keeping the meal and oil barrels in good supply wasn’t enough for her. God knew this.

The theme of my pastor’s series is about being light in a dark world. He used the illustration of lighting one match in a dark cavern, giving light to as many people as were there. Only one light needed to give light to many.

Not all light-givers are appreciated. In fact, when the light given is the truth of the God of Elijah, it is often most unwelcome. It is not easy to be the one. Human nature goes against being the one.

God may not ask you to be the one, but He will always give you what is needed.

Be encouraged, my friend. Don’t quit! And don’t forget to pray.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Elias (Elijah) was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

James 5:16-18

February 16 – 22, 2020 : Week 7

Thou hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Review:  Hebrews 1:1-14

1  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

4  Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

5  For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?  And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

6  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

7  And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

8  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.

9  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

10  And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

11  They shall perish; but thou remounts; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

12  And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

13  But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

God spoke to us by his Son, Who purged our sins, Whose name is above all names, being made so much better than the angels who worship Him, and who minister to the heirs of salvation.
