Some of the biggest miracles in the Bible occurred in the Old Testament; we recognise the blind seeing, the lame walking, the deaf hearing in the New Testament, but when we read what happened on the Old Testament, it was phenomenal: the deliverance of Israel from Egypt and the conquest of the Promised Land, but in this message I want to look at 1 Kings 17 & 18. In 1 Kings 17, the prophet Elijah speaks prophetically. In verse 14 he says, 'For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: "The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land."' I believe this passage is prophetic about the generation we live in. The oil of the Holy Spirit, which was poured out on the church at Pentecost will not run dry. Regardless of the circumstances we face, whatever the difficulties in the world, the oil of the Holy Spirit, and the flour of the Word of God, will not fail us.
