Valley News & Views Page 7 March 14th, 2013 Elijah was one of Israel's greatest prophets. At his word no rain fell in the land of Israel for three years and six months (James 5:17). Ahab was king during much of Elijah's ministry. He and his wife Jezebel were among the most wicked people to ever rule over Israel. They hated Elijah, and sought diligently to find and kill him. Ahab viewed Elijah as the major cause of Israel's many problems, including the famine. When, in I Kings 18:17, they met face to face the king said, "Art thou he that troubleth Israel?" The prophet said he had it all wrong. "I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house..." (v:18). It is true that Elijah had prayed for the rain to be shut off, but it was in response to the direction the royal family was taking Israel -"Thou, and thy father's house...have forsakenthecommandments of the lord, and thou hast followed Baalim" (v: 18). The two meet again in 21:20 and exchanged similar greetings. "Hast thou found me, O mine enemy?" To which Elijah responded, "I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the Lord." It is leaders and a population bent on doing evil in the sight of Almighty God that causes a nation to fall into crisis after crisis. Christ, Christians, and Christianity may be blamed for America's ills, because they insist upon the moral, righteous standard of God's Word. But these are not America's "enemy". In Christ alone will we find our way out of the famine of morality, civility, prosperity, and honesty that is destroying our land. When this nation returns to the commandments it has forsaken and the God it has rejected, righteousness and blessing will again rain upon our land. By pastor leroy aufenkamp Thank you to everyone who participated in our Valentine Day Fundraiser. We had orders for 6 cakes, 39 dozen small cookies and 33 large cookies. This was almost exactly the same as last year. We raised over $500 with this fundraiser which will be used to support the services we provide. There are a couple of "Whimsical Wednesdays" coming up. Feb. 27th Marie Anderson, FNP, will talk about Senior Health Issues. March 13th Mike Harring from IPAT will talk about adapt equipment that is available to help people remain in their own homes. There is a new number for people who want to call the State Tax Department about Renter's Refunds or Property Tax Credits. The number is 1-877-328-7088. They must have changed the number after the information was sent out to us, but people were prompted to call this number when they called the number that was listed last week. Remember to keep non- perishable food on hand for situations where you may be without power. We have had two major blizzards already. We have been lucky we have not lost power.
