Elijah 1: Standing in the Gap

January 26, 2014



Elijah's Raven


We’re starting a new teaching series on the life of one of the most colourful, provocative, charismatic characters in the whole of the Bible – the prophet Elijah. He’s an extraordinarily enigmatic figure, and yet is at the same time profoundly human – full of very normal human doubts and fears and emotions.

But whatever his faults, you always knew where Elijah stood – 100% for the Lord. An unknown man from a backwater place, he was called to stand against evil in the most turbulent and violent and decadent of times – and he did it consistently. Sometimes he feared for his life, but he was never afraid just about what others might think.
