This Bible Study will focus on Scriptural passages with bearing on the present day. Some are prophetic. Others are not, but speak to our circumstances, as if penned yesterday. All offer us assurance and encouragement, in God’s own words.

These are the days of Elijah[i]

“ ‘But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land…’ ” (Luke 4: 25).

Jesus, Himself, spoke of the “days of Elijah,” a time of drought lasting over three years with severe famine the result. We are not living in the days of the prophet, Elijah, literally speaking. For many, however, ours is a time of hardship and testing.
