    We must become aware of the worldly things that we have in our lives that we are holding onto that oppose obedience to God, and run contrary to what he is telling us to do. If we persist, we are given over to and grow in doublemindedness: becoming SO EARTHLY MINDED THAT WE ARE NO HEAVENLY GOOD.

    The lesson for me in the passage is that;
    1. Humility: the third captain and his fifty humbled themselves before God in the live of elijah, no wonder this time around, the holyspirit spoke to elijah which never happened in the first two cases.
    2. Reverence God:if the king had hold God in high esteem, he would have consulted him first. but this is the problem with most christians, may God help us.

    PRAISE THE LORD GOD! We must put our trust in THE LORD at all time and we must declare HIM to the world and all of the devils in it and in he'll. MESSIAH KING JESUS CHRIST IS LORD GOD! YHVH! THE LORD IS SOON TO RETURN. THE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND. The mark of the beast is taking place. The law is the world "national id act 2005" it is an international law "all must scan hands for id and life.

    I had read this story before, and I wanted to read it again, I couldn't find it, So I asked the Author of this book to show me where the story was, and he did !! But the meat of the story to me is -- No matter what the situation is-- you seek God the FATHER ABOUT IT FIRST !!

    We should trust in God at all time because he never disappoints, Elijah had faith in Him and He didn't disappoint Elijah
