Lesson 1

​Enter: The Days of Elijah



          Though the writer of this song, "Days of Elijah" says his inspiration was to speak a message of hope during trying times, I believe it had far more of a prophetic purpose than Robin Mark could have possibly imagined as the song took form.
          It was prophesied over me in 1998 that I would be a witness to the truth and the light, but I had no idea what that fully entailed. I probably still don't. However, what I do know at this point is God has revealed that He has actually raised up many witnesses like myself - believers whose eyes have been opened as mine have been - in order to illuminate the truths of God's Word in this last, very dark hour. We are called to prepare the bride for her Groom's pending arrival.
          A profound strategy has been at play through the ages; the Lord has all of the pieces in place. While I thought my mission was specifically to teach fellow believers how to overcome darkness and to rise up in Christ, I now understand that congruent to this is the call to "prepare ye the way of the Lord".
         As Robin's song conveys, "These are the days of Elijah, declaring the Word of the Lord. And these are the days of Your servant Moses, righteousness being restored. And though these are days of great trial, of famine and darkness and sword, still, we are the voice in the desert crying 'prepare ye the way of the Lord'!"
          We think the song points to the gathering of the harvest of unbelievers, but this is only the half of it. Note that Elijah, Moses, David and Ezekiel didn't minister, so to speak, to the lost, rather, their call was to Israel! To God's chosen people. And the mission of the Old Testament prophets was to call an adulterous people BACK to their God.
          Consider how in 1 Kings 18:21 Elijah said, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” ~I'm afraid Elijah could say these exact words to the Christian Church today. Indeed, we follow the Lord, but we follow all sorts of other things, too. 
          You may be here to get a solid grip on your walk with Christ and to come into manifest victory over the powers of the air to which I say, "Praise God". But please realize that the real reason you're here, whether you knew this or not, is because God sent you - to come into full alignment with truth so that your life can be a manifest witness of the kingdom of God for such a time as this. You know the Word says in Matthew 5:14 that we are the light of the world.  But the light of the Church is presently rather dim, isn't it? 
          I say all this to ask you to please recognize the necessity of becoming completely right with God; getting rid of all kinks, hidden deceptions, unbelief, and any other potential error of the soul.  Note that I didn't bring up sin. Not because it's irrelevant, but because the primary goal is to get the kinks out of our faulty belief systems so that we can THEN overcome sin!
         Time is running short. You don't need to just overcome darkness for your own sake, but for the world's sake around you. Especially in the days to come! When great distress hits the entire planet. Please understand this and commit to seeking God with all your heart like never before. And please use the ODJ Program as a tool to help you along your journey. Be resolved to complete it in its entirity. There are many aspects of the truth of God that need to be understood by God's children, many things I had to walk through just so I could learn and receive various insights that are not readily taught in the Church. And realize that I do not tout this program because I developed it, but because I know the Holy Spirit began this thing in me back in 1989 and that everything I've been through and learned ever since has been for this hour.
​          So please, no matter how well versed in the scriptures you are or aren't, no matter your credentials or lack there of, no matter your background, please humble yourself to what's laid out in this program asking the Lord to give you a witness to it if the contents are, indeed, from Him. Allow Him to speak to you and shed light on anything that is in you that needs tweaked, corrected, and repented for. It's time to come into allignment. It's time to prepare ye the way of the Lord.
          In case you're wondering if I've arrived, the answer is an emphatic no. Please understand I am learning even as I am preparing teachings! Holy Spirit just won't quit. When He finds a student that really wants to learn, He runs with it! Praise God. And I'm sure He's only just begun to teach me thus far. But all I have that He has given me, to the best of my ability, I work very hard to present in the most accessible and comprehensible ways possible - which happens to be this program. And I pray every word in this program that is not from God falls to the ground devoid of meaning. To the contrary, may every word  in this program that is from God go forth mightily to connect with the seeds of life in the hearts of God's people, and bring them all into full allignment and the full stature of Christ.
          Let me say that "The Day's of Elijah" is not just a powerful worship song. No, this song is a prophetic rendition of the hour we are in. It's straight from Heaven. Look how emphatically the Lord is trying to get our attention, to show us what's going on. Now let's respond and get ready. Let's do all we can to align ourselves with the kingdom of God and His truths. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
