The Book of James reminds us that "Elijah was a human being just like us" (James 5:17). Like us, he found himself in a culture and an atmosphere of neglect and outright hostility towards God and His ways.

The idols of his day, the world leaders, and the culture distorted, perverted, and minimized the truth. And like us, for Elijah to be God's person, meant at the very least, he was unwelcome, and an irritation and annoyance to the world around him.

The Days of Elijah series is meant as an encouragement and a clarion call to all sincere Christians everywhere to gird themselves up, and outrun, outlive, outlast, and outlove "the powers," the "world rulers of this darkness," and "the spiritual forces of evil" with which we must contend (1 Kings 18:46, Ephesians 6:12).
