Days of Elijah are Familiar

KATHY—In earlier posts I have mentioned some things that “the days of Elijah”, from the Bible, were significantly similar to the days we are dealing with now. This is another one.  Days of Elijah mark a time when God’s people have their identity established.  1Ki 18:30  “And Elijah said to all the people, Come near to me. And all the people came near to him; and he healed the altar of Jehovah that had been broken down. 1Ki 18:31  And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the Word of Jehovah came, saying, Israel shall be your name.  With those stones, he drew a line between who they had become and who they were meant to be, and they were about to see their God confirm it.  1Ki 18:36  And it happened at the offering of the sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, O Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known today that You are God in Israel, and I am Your servant, that by Your Word I have done all these things. 1Ki 18:37 Answer me, O Jehovah, answer me; and this people shall know that You are Jehovah God; and You shall turn their hearts back again. 1Ki 18:38  And fire fell from Jehovah and burned up the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and the water in the trench was licked up. 1Ki 18:39  And all the people saw, and fell on their faces, and said, Jehovah, He is the God; Jehovah, He is THE God!”  So shall days like the days of Elijah go down in history again!
