ART THOU ELIJAH -excerpt from a new book I'm writing on the ministry of Elijah. (rough draft)
ART THOU ELIJAH?
I was invited to minister at a home in on St Josephs Island in Sault St Marie Ontario in 2001. It was from a good friend that often would take me on a small tour ministering in several homes and Church’s in the area. It was beautiful two story home on lake Superior. At the end of my speaking that evening I was answering questions about the prophetic. Someone had asked a question about my ministry exposing sin and about Gods judgments. Although God had told me in the past not to talk about it I assumed I was not throwing my pearls to the swine and answered a few questions about my hidden ministry. After all these were mostly leadership and mature Christians.
I never thought much about what I said as I made my way back to Toronto which was about a 10 hour drive from there. A day or two had gone by since then and I received a phone call in the middle of the night. Bleary eyed I answered the call with fear and trepidation. I mean after, calls in the middle of the night are rarely good.
Well you guessed it! It was a Pastor from a Church in S.S. Marie Michigan. He sounded very upset and told me that he had gotten my number from a friend in Nova Scotia just moments before. It was about 2am if I recall. I was not quite awake yet as he poured out his heart to me over the phone. He kept asking me to forgive him but I couldn’t figure out what he had done. Slowly the house meeting scenario came back to me and I started to slump in my chair.
This is what he said sorrowfully.
When he got home from the meeting that night his wife openly mocked me to him. She thought I was some kind of lunatic thinking that God had called me to this kind of Ministry to the Church. She was immediately rendered a quadriplegic and he rushed her to the hospital in Michigan where Drs performed every test possible but could find no reason for her inability to move her arms and legs. They performed MRI’s and Cat scans but found no reason for her condition.
He was calling me from the Hospital with his wife by his side and very worried. He apologized to me and put her on the phone as well, she also apologized to me through tears. I hung up the phone with a sick feeling in my stomach. The next day he called me again saying. That in no time at all she had gained use of her limbs and walked out of the hospital. Doctors had no explanation for the paralysis.
