“RAISE UP THE OBADIAH’S”

By I Kings 18:1, Elijah is back on the scene after 3 1/2 years (verse 1 says ‘many days’) Elijah had been in Zarephath those many years, but where exactly is that area? Where Jezebel came from, by Sidon in the area that is now Lebanon.

When he comes back the word of the Lord came to him again, when the famine in Samaria was severe. ““Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.” The one Elijah brought the message to was Obadiah (not the prophet who wrote the book of Obadiah). Obadiah greatly feared the Lord and hid 100 prophets in caves and personally fed them with bread and water. This was after Jezebel massacred all the prophets of Israel she found. The word massacre in Hebrew is karath and means ‘cut off, cut down, eliminate, kill, behead, destroy”.

How does this parallel with today? There are godly men and women that God has raised up in the government and they have been going through much physical, spiritual, family, financial hardships, not to mention character assassinations. These may be elected government positions, or they could be those prophets, intercessors, pastors, ministries that God has given a voice in the government today. I personally know several who are tired, weary, lacking funds but keep on going because there is no going back from what God has called them to do.

In Elijah’s time, 100 men of God were protected by 1 man, and they were only fed with bread and water during the famine time. Jezebel was feeding 850 of the false prophets from her lavish table.

Today, those who reign over the media empire are fed well, fed from the king’s table (government) while the prophets of God sent to the government are barely making it financially, struggling to maintain their ministry as the spirit of Jezebel works to suck the life ouT of them.

Yesterday I felt compelled to get a stool and reorganize my A-C shelf, which is the highest shelf. What are the odds of me being compelled to do this on a nice Saturday afternoon? The odds are too high to imagine. Anyway, as I was reorganizing that shelf by author, I picked up the 2005 book, Journal of the Unknown Prophet by Wendy Alec of God TV. I then turned it over and my eyes immediately focused on “He Speaks to the Media“.

I have been so burdened about the lies and deception to the public through the media. It was no accident that this book came into my hands yesterday. I want to bring out a few lines from her prophetic word from pages 205-207, “Judgment Upon The Media”, a prophetic word given to Wendy in 1999:

“And so too My wrath is turned upon the peddlers and the soothsayers of this day. And it is you, the media, I hold accountable. For even in these past thirty years, surely you have propagated lies and bombarded My people day and night with your lies until the truth they once knew and embraced in their hearts was in turn exchanged for a lie. But the lie was your lie, manufactured and propagated by those great empires built by mankind. And so it was, that that which was originally birthed to glorify what was good and righteous and pure in the human heart became overtaken by the lust of money, power and greed. And avarice reared its head. And so the media empires of this world became tools to manipulate and control and exercise dominion over the public at large, over this generation…………..And then you took the faithful, and across your screens you mocked their faith. You exchanged faith for humanism and intellectualism and atheism, and many, many of My little ones fell and followed your lies. And so I tell you, O man, that your judgment awaits. The Son of Man is seated on a great white throne, and His angels stand like flaming fire…………For much, yes, so very much was given you, and from you, much was required, and as I watch you, in your self-deception and your delusions, I weep for you. For my warning to you is My mercy. Repent, O man; repent, O child repent. You whom I created to serve and to love Me, repent. Repent even today in your rejection of Me, I wait for you. I weep, I weep and wait for you each and every day. Repent, BELOVED man.”

“LORD, RAISE UP OBADIAH’S IN THE LAST DAYS TO HELP, ENCOURAGE, STAND IN THE GAP AND FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THESE FAITHFUL MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD YOU HAVE PLACED IN THE GOVERNMENT”

In March 8, 2007, Dutch Sheets (who is the best teacher ever on Elijah, Jezebel and Baal) gave a great report on the Strongmen over America, the ‘spirit of Baal’. I believe this is relevant for us today.
