Am I Alone

1 Kings Ch. 19 v 9-18

And the word of the Lord came to him: "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
He replied, "I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too."
The Lord said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by."
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
He replied, "I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too."
The Lord said to him, "Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram.
Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet.
Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu.
Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him."

The passage above covers a very dark time in the nation of Israel.  In the previous chapter, Elijah had won a significant victory over the prophets of Baal, but now he had fled for his life from an evil ruler.  Twice in the passage above, he tells God that he is alone and the only one who serves the true God.

Right now, it feels like that in the UK.  Everyone around us is worshipping the NHS, the government and the vaccine, and many of us, like Elijah, feel that we stand alone.  Everyone we talk to is against us and thinks we are crazy.  It is indeed dark times in the UK, but also in the world, in general.

If you are reading this, then perhaps you are one whom God has revealed what is really going on in the world and the articles I write in this blog make absolute sense to you.  However, around you, you still feel alone and isolated.  Elijah had stood unbending on Mount Carmel, faced down the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and had shown clearly that Baal was no god at all.

Despite the victory and the clear and indisputable proof that the God of Israel was the God of power, the proponents of Baal still refused to accept the inevitable.  For Jezebel, it was nothing to do with proof and all to do with an indwelling evil.  Nothing that Elijah could tell her or show her would ever change her mind.  Does that sound familiar?

Today, those pursuing the agenda of isolation and vaccination know that it does not work.  They know that it is pure evil and it is the very same worship of Baal shown in this passage.  Baal demanded child sacrifice, and those requiring that all children are vaccinated are satisfying this demand.

In our culture, we used to sacrifice for our children.  Our forefathers went to war and sacrificed their lives so that we could live in freedom.  Parents will go without, giving the very best to their children.  However, the current reincarnation of Baal is demanding that the children be sacrificed to protect Granny and Granpa.

The Baal of today is demanding that we inject our children with an untested gene therapy, even though hundreds of thousands worldwide have already died after taking this lethal injection.  The high priests of Baal are not interested in the facts, and taking the vaccine has become a religious ritual that must be performed by all on pain of death.

So zealous are they that any who oppose their plan must be excluded and eliminated.  Slowly, they are controlling the narrative and attempting to demonise all unvaccinated with a determination to turn the population against them, making it easier to eliminate and sideline them.

The madness is equally as furious as that of Jezebel, who was determined to kill Elijah or die trying.  Like Elijah, many of us feel that the evil rulers over us are hell-bent on destroying us.  We are standing in their way of total victory and must be eliminated in any way possible.

Our hearts melt in fear when our eyes are opened, and we examine the evil Baal worshippers’ power structure.  We see them bind our people so they cannot work, get paid, live everyday life, and sometimes not even buy food.  The future looks black indeed, and we feel we are all alone.

With all the noise around us, we need to listen for the still small whisper.  God is not in the noise, but he speaks in a small, still voice, directly to our hearts.  He sends the same message to us that he sent to Elijah.  He tells us to get up and continue with the Lord’s work and that we are not alone.

Elijah thought that he was the only servant of God left in the land, but God revealed to him that there are yet seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.  Elijah is given explicit instructions to go and anoint those who will continue the fight, even beyond his time on earth.

Do you feel that you are alone today?  Is your heart melting in the face of the evil power arrayed against you?  Know this; you are not alone.  God has his remnant today, just as he did in the days of Elijah.  God is speaking to his people and instructing them to get up and continue the fight.  God is telling us that we are on the winning side.

It is a lonely place in which we are placed, but we need to reach out to like-minded Christians while also anointing those outside the faith.  Many non-Christians view the Church with disdain, and in many cases, it is fully justified. However, we now have the opportunity to show them a fully awake Church, not only to the world’s agenda but also to God’s plan.

We live in dire times, but it is a time when we need God more than ever.  We must realise that this fight is not against man but evil spiritual powers that seek to destroy every good thing God has created.  We will not succeed against this evil in our own strength but only in the strength that comes from the all-powerful God who created us.

What should we, as Christians, do?

Firstly, we need to get on our knees in prayer.  Without God’s help, we are lost, so we need to plead with God for his help, not only for ourselves but also for our nation.

Secondly, we need to reach out to each other for support and encouragement.  Even those who lead and appear strong feel lonely and get discouraged.  To know that you are not alone is a great encouragement.  Please use the ‘Contact Us’ link at the top of the page to reach out and encourage me, as I also feel isolated.

Thirdly, reach out to non-Christians who are awake and explain the spiritual dimension of this battle. Then, offer to lead them to the only one who can give us genuine encouragement and guaranteed success.

You are not alone!  I stand with you.  God has revealed the truth to you for a purpose. So get up and walk into that purpose.  You are part of the remnant God is preparing.  You may be an Elijah or a Daniel. Stand firm in your faith.  Do not waiver.  You are on the winning side.

One thought on “Am I Alone”

  1. Jim, I really like this post. I think your blog is a great encouragement in general to those of us who know what is going on and feel powerless to make others recognise the truth. I suggested this passage about Elijah to someone just yesterday, because he felt so alone in the fight for truth in the midst of covidmania, particularly isolated from church fellowship. Thank you and keep going. You are making a difference.
