Elijah is just a man and the flesh is weak. At the moment of physical and mental exhaustion he feared Jezebel. He also expected God to act boldly by changing the hearts of the queen and people. When the opposite occurred he ran. Stay on the narrow path and don’t let other people become a snare.
The mercies of God are multi faceted.
What do you think about Obadiah? Is he a coward? When put in comparison to Elijah yes but God uses all of us differently. So not be quick to judge.
And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”
Matthew 10:42 NKJV
Why was Israel so interested in Baal? They were an agriculture society. Prosperity gospeal. Patreon of Baal worship is queen jezabell – exceedding in society. Stop toggling around.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24 NKJV
The sin of idolatry. Do not trust in yourself. Pride.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
Psalms 46:10 ESV
The immineces of God. Always present.
What your are is greater than what you do.
We should not live with is sense of defeat. Pray for revival – in regards to present nations not fearing God. When a nation is ripe for judgement it is also ripe for mercy.
To live evil you just need to be lazy.
Testing the spirits

1 John 4:2 ESV
A reminder of how it does not matter how you start the race but how you finish it.
How does God see my life?
Beware of the insidious moments when God confronts your sin and you do not turn.
The southern kings were better but not perfect. God kept them because of the davidic covenant. This reminds us of our faith in Jesus Christ.
Jeroboam suttly corrupted Israel with synchronized religion. He promoted a religion of convenience. God says take up your cross and follow me.
The tale of two prophets. Jeroboam did not take heed of the arm warning.
The old false prophet. He saught to deceive the prophet from Judah. Why was he not remorseful? God can speak through Balem’s donkey. God’s word will not be distorted. In spite of all these events Jeroboam did not turn from his sinful ways and kept leading Israel astray. You need to be very discerning when heeding God’s word.
Lessons. When Satan’s tactics are suttle be weary. Be very watchful.
Jeroboam doesn’t obey God but looks for him when in trouble.
