This morning we are at Mount Horeb, Mount Sinai, where God revealed Himself to Moses in a cave. The prophet Elijah who has just killed the 450 prophets of Baal is also found under the cave of Mount Horeb. Fleeing Queen Jezebel and her husband Akhab, he is exhausted having walked for 40 days and 40 nights. During his trip he even wished that God would take his life. God intervenes, however, at a most unexpected moment! He is a God of surprises (Ps90: 14)
Elijah is persecuted and persecuted because of his faith in the living and true God. Christians should expect to be persecuted because of Christ. (Mt 5:12). Jesus himself will tell us: “You will be hated by everyone because of me” (Mt 10:22). Have you ever been persecuted because of your faith? Have you ever been persecuted for the good done Remember Peter and John who were persecuted and imprisoned for healing a pearlite in the book of Acts of the Apostles 3.
