In the scriptures, God allowed His prophets to destroy false prophets. (I Kings 19:17) When Elijah gathered the 450 prophets of Ba’al together on Mount Carmel, He did an impromptu cremations! He spared not one. Others in the Old Testament, such as Daniel, when given the decree to worship the king or be cast into the den of lions, stood fast.
Knowing that his God would deliver him. In Daniel, chapter 3, when the king commanded the people to bow down and worship him, the three Hebrew children said, “Not on your life or ours.”
Daniel was cast into the lion’s den and God delivered him. Those three were cast into the fiery furnace, Jesus journeyed there with them, sparing them to the point that not even their clothes had the smell of smoke!
Where is the boldness of Elijah from the pulpits across America? We are living the troubling times for the children of God.
Terrible times demand Holy Ghost power preaching! We must not be devoured by the laws that would quince the powerful message of the dynamite gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ! (Romans 1-16) In Romans 11:2-4, the apostle Paul waxing bold, guided by the Holy Spirit wrote, “God has not forsaken His people,” recalling Elijah’s prophesy, “Lord they have killed the prophets and digged down your altars.” God answered him saying, “I have reserved to myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to the image of Ba’al.” In this day and hour men of God and Christians are told to get in harmony with the politically correct (so called) and tailor down their conservative faith lift! Do not do it! Greater is He that is you than he that is the world! (I John 4:4) Take the example of David in Acts 2:25, “I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for He is on my right hand that I should not be moved!!” Hold on the what Peter and John said when the Jerusalem council told them not to speak, henceforth in the name. They responded “Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you, judge you, but we cannot but speak the things which we have seem and heard!” Such is all God preachers to do!
