Elijah was a leading prophet of the Old Testament. Through Elijah God worked some powerful and astounding miracles. His was a mission aimed at revealing who is the true God, and turning the hearts of the people to his worship, to the extent they were willing.
Malachi prophesied that Elijah would be sent before “the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:5). Some thought John the Baptist might be Elijah having reappeared on the earth, but he denied that he was Elijah. Yet it had been prophesied that John the Baptist would go “in the spirit and power of Elijah” (Luke 1:17).
Many since have come proclaiming themselves, or identifying some other contemporary person, as Elijah, and in some cases have insisted that their proclamations must be believed as a condition for baptism.
In this message, “The Work of Elijah,” we focus on Elijah’s ministry, or his work, and how it relates to other statements in the Bible concerning Elijah, and the fulfillment of prophecies leading to the end of this age.
Some may wonder, if there is a real God, why can’t we see him? Why would God hide himself? In this message learn what the Bible tells us about why most have not seen God, and under what circumstances you, and everyone else, even those now in their graves, will see God.
Of all the countless books that have been written, is there any that reliably answers the most fundamental and important questions of life? Why do we exist? What is our nature? Is there a God, and if so, what is God like? What does God expect of us? Can we know the true God? Does God love us? Is there a path that can put an end to violence, unnecessary suffering and sorrow? What happens when we die? Is there a way to eternal life, and if so, what is it?
Believe it or not, there is such a book, a book that has the answers to these questions, and other questions vital to the life of every human. That book is called the Bible. The Bible is unlike any other, and has no equal, because it is God’s revelation to mankind of knowledge that can be found in no other source.
In this message you’re invited to consider specific reasons why you should study the Bible.
What is pictured by God’s Feast of Tabernacles reveals a richness, depth and magnitude to God’s grace far beyond what most have imagined. Among the gifts to be given: salvation, liberation, just government, an end to evils such as crime, fraud, theft, etc., long life, abundance for all, and these are just the beginning of blessings God will pour out on mankind.
The Feast of Tabernacles pictures in a prophetic manner, among other things, the spiritual salvation and restoration of all nations. In this message are details from Scripture about the astounding future awaiting the nations after Jesus Christ returns to establish the kingdom of God on this earth.
