My God is Yahweh, Part II: Prayer – A World Changer

by
My God is YAHWEH

Today’s parallels to Elijah’s day are striking! What is so desperately needed in our day today are men and women who, like Elijah, can have and Elijah-like impact on this society. Elijah was used by God in his day to turn the hearts of the people back to God. In the New Testament book that bears his name, James is careful to note that Elijah was a man, a human being, with a nature just like us. So what was it that enabled him to be so used of God in his day of spiritual and moral decline? It was his prayer life!

My God is Yahweh, Part I

by
My God is YAHWEH

We are no longer one nation under God.  The psalmist asked, “When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”  Though a man just like us, Elijah faced the challenge of crumbling foundations in Israel  – morally, spiritually, and politically. We have much to learn from him about how to deal with the challenge of living in a country of  fallen foundations. The message of his life was “My God is Yahweh”, and armed with that conviction he confronted and overcame the challenge of crumbling foundations.
