Elijah: Holding Steady in a Roller Coaster World
Mar 21, 2021

King Ahab takes evil to new heights and the people of Israel to new depths of sin. He married a pagan wife from Sidon, Jezebel. She hates God and his prophets, and Ahab puts her in charge of religion in Israel! Her agenda is to completely replace the one true God with Baal (they’d maintained some worship of Yahweh), so she kills all the prophets and sets up her own Baal prophets. Into this scene Elijah is called by God. He steps into ministry in a time of unparalleled tension, apostasy & danger. This roller coaster time demands a prophet who 
can hold on and follow God through the highs and lows of doing ministry in such a climate.

Scripture:  Kings 17-19
