Have you checked your bank balance lately? Are your cupboards bare and lines of credit maxed out? Then you need to hear this story of a window woman and her son. A desperate mother living through a financial famine gathers a few sticks to build a fire and cook their last meal and die.
So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and DIE.”
Now, along comes Elijah, the prophet, and has the audacity to ask this frail widow to feed him first. He prophesied that if she did this there would be enough food for all three of them to survive throughout the remainder of the famine.
And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day of the Lord sends rain on the earth.'”
1 Kings 17:13
At sometime or another we all have had someone tell us ‘GOD SAID’. Dropping names is one thing but to use the name of God to get what you want is extreme. In all fairness, we know that a true word from God can change one’s life in the blink of an eye. What do you suppose drove this widow woman to share her last meal with Elijah?
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
To Kent Simpson
Thanks for the prophecy. I have ordered from you many personal prophesies before and you have told me from the Lord my situation. Things have come to past and the Holy Spirit is using me in a mighty way in the prophetic and healing. God is now visiting my hometown Skelleftea in Sweden. Things are now going to happen.
Thanks one more time for your prophetic ministries.
God bless you Kent
