God's Surprising Provision

May 14, 2023    Pastor Brent Swanson

Pastor Brent Swanson preaches the first sermon in our "Elijah: The Prophetic Voice" series, entitled God's Surprising Vision" based on 1 Kings 17:1-16.

In the Old Testament, the role of the prophet was to speak on God’s behalf. The prophets called out idolatry and injustice, confronted wayward kings, and called the people of God back to repentance. Prophets were change agents that held God’s people accountable for their actions. Elijah was one of these prophets. A wild man who lived in the desert, Elijah spoke the truth, even when it was dangerous to do so. In this series, we will listen for God’s prophetic voice to us, through the ministry of Elijah.
