When the enemy of God brought Baal into Israel like a flood, the Spirit of God raised up Elijah against him. The Lord used a lowly Tishbite to accomplish His purposes. Yet Elijah was as human as the rest of us. Where he differed from the average believer was in his single-minded devotion to God. When God commanded, Elijah trusted and obeyed. Theodore Epp, founder and first Bible teacher on the Back to the Bible broadcast, explains that although Elijah was a man of like nature, he was also an example of faithfulness to God amidst spiritual apostasy who believers can learn from today.
