Long Gone

IMG_1439

Elijah prophesied to King Ahab that there wouldn’t be any rain or dew for years. Then he left town to go dwell in the wilderness.

He was out of sight to Ahab but the work of the Lord was still evident.

A drought had come upon the land, just as Elijah had said it would. God’s power couldn’t be disputed in that area.

The Lord may put you in a situation only for a while, or only to speak a few words. Give it your best efforts though because the effects can be felt long after you’re gone.

Galatians 5:22-23

Jeremiah 28:1-9

Hananiah, a false prophet, stood before the people of Judah and told them a lie. He said it convincingly. Enough so that the people believed him.

Jeremiah, a true prophet of God, stood after Hananiah and reminded the people that Hananiah would be either proven as a true prophet or false prophet based on the result of his prophecy.

How can we tell if we should be taking advice from someone? Following after someone’s teachings? Looking to someone for guidance?

Check their fruits. Are the fruits of the Spirit evident in their life? In what they do?

Hananiah was proven to be a false prophet because the prophecy he gave wasn’t fulfilled.

God has given you the knowledge to discern between a true leader and false leader.

Wisely, prayerfully, decide who you attach yourself to.
