“Lord, THEY HAVE KILLED YOUR PROPHETS, THEY HAVE TORN DOWN YOUR ALTARS, AND I ALONE AM LEFT, AND THEY ARE SEEKING MY LIFE.” Romans 11:3
While Paul was using the story of Elijah to teach about “the remnant” of Jewish people are still going to be saved. This is also a great story and principle for Gentile Christians as well. Elijah was preaching to the Jewish people to repent and get away from the false teachings of Jezebel. Elijah faced strong opposition to the point he said “they killed Gods prophets and tore down Gods altars” and not they looked to kill Elijah also
Elijah ran and hid into a cave , however this is not what Gods plan was for him. Elijah had pretty much given up. God said to Elijah “What are you doing here”? (1 Kings 19:9) Even though Elijah thought he was defeated God knows the beginning and the end
But what is the divine response to him? “I HAVE KEPT for Myself SEVEN THOUSAND MEN WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL.” Romans 11:4
Paul went on to teach about Gods response , Elijah thought he was the only Man of God left, however God still had “a remnant” of 7,000 holy men left. This is the same today, sometimes we may feel like we are the only Christians around preaching truth, however God still has his remnant of people.
You are not alone, God has a remnant of brothers and sisters serving The Lord in Jesus Name Amen
