A New Year — Time to take Inventory

Ravens_bringing_food_to_Elijah

As we begin the new year, we thought it’d be good to review what we have learned about the Lord’s  last message to us from the  Elijah, the prophet.

The Lord promised an end-time prophet to come before the “great and dreadful” day of the Lord (Mal. 4:5), and if we slight this or ignore it, the time will come when we wish we hadn’t.

So let’s look at some questions this week. Please review them and print it out and write your answers, and then next week we’ll show the correct answers. You can then know whether you’ve advance in the knowledge of His important message, or whether you’ve got more to study. In (Hosea 4:6) it says, ” My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” And “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.(2 Tim. 2:15)

In addressing  specifically our church, our Lord said we think we have “need of  nothing”(Rev.3:17). Did He mean we think we don’t need more tangible and worldly things? Of course not. He means that we’d not be interested in “present truth” that He would send through His last prophet–Elijah. We do indeed need it.
