Elijah certainly was and is a great prophet of God and I do not mean any disrespect for him. But the Bible wrote an event about him which some in this present life still think about themselves. This event was written in I Kings 19:14 -18.
It goes like this: Elijah told God. " I have been zealous for the Lord God Almighty....I am the only one left,
Later on God told Elijah.." Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel--all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.
Comment: If we think we are the only one serving God, think again.
