TEXT: 1 KINGS 19:13-18

  1. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
  2. And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken Thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain Thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
  3. And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
  4. And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
  5. And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
  6. Yet I have left Me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

KEY VERSE: 2 TIMOTHY 2:2 “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”

God promised to give the church true and holy ministers. However dark and ungodly the church become, a remnant must escape because true teachers of the word shall always be there; reserved to sustain holiness and righteousness. Jesus must meet with people. Jesus must have people to rapture, whatever the devil has done or is doing by these corrupt preachers.

The Lord has raised up true preachers that will preserve people until the rapture. Satan thought he has gotten all the world; all mankind because he has captured ninety-nine percent of ministers. His strategy was, “Smite the shepherd and the sheep shall scatter.”

He thought he had gotten all Israel but God has reserved seven thousand righteous people that perfectly overcame Baal, evil spirits and evil government of Ahab and Jezebel. “Elijah! Go and anoint Elisha. He shall take succeed you as prophet in Israel and shall do double work above you.”

In the apostolic times, few of the apostles wrote epistles to the churches but Paul the apostle was committed with the full gospel to the churches. He preached fruitfully and raised up mentees to continue with the work. There must be continuity. Paul was inspired to put his teachings into writings.

The imprisonment of Paul was useful to achieve this because it was from prison that he wrote many books of the New Testament. This provision of God has continued to our time. The same doctrine of righteousness, taught by men of truth and righteousness is being transferred from generation to generation into the hands of remnants.

Sometimes there is a revival when the fire burns brightly but there are other times when darkness seems to eclipse but a remnant must remain. God has given me this gospel; the gospel of eternal life and I am passing it unto you; to the select few who are righteous.
