Christ’s Second Coming is to be preceded by the message and experience of Elijah (Malachi 4:5) as well as the conditions that brought about the literal and spiritual drought for 3 1/2 years. It is evident that we are in a time of spiritual drought and famine in the Seventh-day Adventist denomination because the “prophets of Baal” and the “prophets of the groves,” along with their idolatrous practices and teachings have been introduced and celebrated in the churches. Furthermore, the cause of the calamities that the nation faced in the times of Elijah were attributed to him. So it will be in the very near future, as the natural disasters and calamities increase in frequency and intensity, God’s faithful Sabbath-keepers will be blamed for them, while at the same time they will have to stand alone as did Elijah on Mount Carmel.
As you listen to this message, take heed and take an introspect of your life to determine whether you are devoid of the rain–the Holy Spirit, the doctrines of Present-truth, God’s blessings–because of cherishing idols and sin in your life. Let us watch and pray!
