Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. Romans 11:3
Often when we take a look around this world, we get disgusted or discouraged about the lack of holiness in this world. Even in Christianity today, we see a lot of sin and corruption running rampant throughout the churches. Sometimes it makes you wonder, where are all the Born Again believers?
The Prophet Elijah felt this way, Gods prophets were being killed by Jezebel, who seduced most of Israel with her paganism and immorality. Elijah was hiding in a cave and about to give up when God answered him with this message in the next verse
But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Romans 11:4
Even though to Elijah it seemed like he was the only one left who hasn’t sold their soul to Baal, God told him he has 7,000 other men just like him! This had to be a humbling experience for Elijah, when he thought he was the only one following God and instead there are thousands doing the same
We can probably related to this today, You might feel like you’re the only one worshipping God and following his ways, but the truth is God has a chosen remnant. God has a great multitude that are covered by the blood of Christ, set apart from the world
You are not alone, you are part of Gods remnant, you are not alone. Keep fighting the good fight and have faith in Christ alone Amen!
