Memorable Paisley is a fiery preacher who thunders from the pulpit. He takes this question of Elijah's day and applies it to today. Elijah came on the scene "when apostasy reached it's zenith". There is much apostasy today, without question. An apostate built Jericho, we are told, and God had a man (named Elijah) for the hour. Even "evangelicals" are resurrecting Babylonianism today in the churches, he says, (spoken already in 1970). He covers the obvious perversion of the scripture today also. "God is looking for a man who will do battle for the LORD". He wants a fighting church, not a compromising one, not a petty one, not an isolationist one..."I can show you churches in this city that once were a power for God and they are blighted today (!)..."

Great Sermon! I thoroughly enjoyed Dr Paisley's sermon. I even found myself laughing at some of his comments. Thank you for enlightening me on the scriptures about Elijah. I myself think Elijah was a great man of God. May the Lord continually use you to bring to life the scriptures we so desperately need. God bless.
