The prophets of old, including Elijah, spoke boldly in the name of the Lord. Can we today – that is, we who are not prophets – speak that boldly? Of course, we can. Elijah and the other prophets were bold for the very purpose that we could be bold. They risked their lives that the truth of God might not perish from the earth. Moreover, Elijah had the Law of Moses for corroboration but we have the entire Old Testament and New Testament. Thus we ought to be sure and certain in the things we believe about God.
