1 Kings 19:10 He (Elijah) replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.”

11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.

Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

            Terrible things are happening to Christians all around the globe. Outcast and mocked in every place even though the past glories of the Church may have shined, nowadays we are relegated to “hide in our little caves of despair” waiting on and crying out to a God who doesn’t seem to be listening.

Was it by sheer human will that Elijah called down fire on the prophets of Baal? Was it by sheer human will that the Church of Jesus conquered the entire world and sprung up every place where believers set their feet? Of course not. Then, what could possibly be the problem?

            Very simply the problem is one of what I will call “spiritual hearing”. We have filled our ears with preaching, we have stopped “doing” good works. We listen to a myriad of preachers and endless, and meaningless debates over and over again and neglect the extremely important virtue of being in deep relationship through prayer.

More to come…
