PREPARING AND NOT FEARING
March 7, 2020
12 And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.14 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah. 1 Kings.
“I will bring judgment upon this land, for it has already begun. Your money supply will be hindered because of this outbreak. I tell you that the markets will tip over and the supply of the almighty dollar will fall. Wait and see my people, for this is just the tip of the iceberg. You have been told by some that you must hoard a great supply of food, but these that do this are not depending upon Me.
For have I not said that I own the cattle on a thousand hills? Have I not said that I will supply all your needs? But no, you would rather live in fear. You would rather fall prey to the news reports that drift across this land.
I tell you that things are getting worse but that does not mean that you need to live in fear. For I will always be with you, even unto the end. Are you all like Peter who looked upon the waves and not upon Me? Remember the woman at Zarephath when the prophet came to her? For the oil and the meal did not run out; and so it will be with you if you put your faith in Me.
But truly I did not say to fear, but I have told you to prepare; and yet it is not in hoarding but it is in the preparing of your hearts for the days ahead. ”
