When a man of God that makes a difference arises
Hello everyone. It is a pleasure to be here with you.
Today we will begin talking about Elijah, since we are in the faith of Mount Carmel, in the faith of the sacrifice.
Think with me: How does a Man of God arise? How does he arise of “nothing”, and has the audacity to challenge the king?
Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him. And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him. Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a wooden image. [a] Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him. (I Kings 16: 30-33).
So that a man of God can arise, there has to exist facts! Obviously a man of God does not come because of others, but because of himself, wanting to be just with Him.
King Ahab did everything that was wrong and evil before the Lord, but God, even with all His power and magnitude, did nothing to stop him from committing his abominations. To irritate God, surely he knew he was wrong.
We do not annoy God with something that we are not aware of or when we do not know the truth; when we do not know the difference between right and wrong. But the king himself committed abominations to irritate God.
You can notice through this example, that God respects you! Not even with all His power and His magnitude, He imposes His will. Never! But He doesn’t do nothing without the participation of man. And who would this one be? Where would he be?
You can follow how Elijah arose on Friday.
Today we addressed the situation that took place before Elijah appeared.
Notice that an irritable situation to God isn’t something indifferent to him who serves Him. There is no way to be indifferent to something that is evil before God and do nothing about it!
To have the sacrificial faith to surrender all your life on the altar of God, you have to have a consciousness, not only of the manifestation of faith to sacrifice your belongings, but also you yourself, have to hate what is unfair and makes you be separated from God. You can’t accept being indifferent to what is unfair. Before this kind of situation, there is revolt!
I will talk on the next audio about this subject.
A big hug and until Friday.
