Delving into 2 Chronicles, Hal Mayer evaluates Jeroboam’s rule and how his life affected those who followed him, specifically Ahab. In Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the Third Elijah, learn how God intervenes and changes things. Note that God never lets Satan go all the way, but instead may wait until the zenith to act. So with this cycle of intervention, hear about how God is about to come again soon to reconcile what is happening on Earth. Sin is what separates us from God’s love, and eventually God’s wrath will fall upon those who wilfully reject him.
Ahab fell into sin because of Jezebel, and Jezebel used a system of surveillance to monitor Elijah. Does this sound familiar? People may use security and safety issues as excuses for surveillance. Consider Edward Snowden’s current impact and situation today. See how the Biblical situation is being mirrored today, as many troubling events are unfolding. Mayer asks us to consider how we can protect ourselves by taking the Scriptures to heart and apply God’s principles to our lives. Perhaps the answer is through prayer: by communicating with God without ceasing, we can become the third Elijah.
