Wind, Earth, and Fire
After Elijah's time of great victory in which all the prophets of Baal were slain and the whole kingdom turned to God, and after God answered his prayer and sent rain to a land dry and parched with drought, Jezebel threatened his life, and he tucked his tail and ran.
To get Elijah's attention, God sent a wind, an earthquake, and a fire; but God was not in them. Then he spoke to Elijah in a still small voice. Perhaps God was using this object lesson to ask Elijah, "You recognize when I am not in great shows of power and you are not impressed; why then are you troubled by this evil woman when I am not in her message?"

A Still Small Voice
During John the Baptist's ministry, he proclaimed, "I am the voice of one crying in the winderness, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make his paths straight.'" And in his preaching of repentance, was he not pointing ears to the same still small voice that led Elijah to victory over Jezebel and, more importantly, over being impressed with those things in which God was not?
It is this still small voice that God uses to bring us out of our dry and lonely place back onto the path he has designed for us to walk. And yet, he uses the voices, the hands, the feet, and the hearts of willing vessels. Are you willing to proclaim the Good News to everyone everywhere? Pray that God would reveal the giftings he has placed within you to reach out to others with the Gospel.
God has called us to minister to the people who make up the community of the virtual world. We are a voice crying out in the wilderness of over six million people from every country and every walk of life, proclaiming the good news of forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ. And we need your prayer and your support.
Currently there are more than 6,135,319 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 200,000 to 350,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
