1Kings 1-4 Elijah has been God’s voice in the northern kingdom. He has not seen one righteous king but some righteous people. As his ministry comes to a close he seeks to turn King Ahaziah back to the Lord, but because he would not, Elijah reminds him that he will die soon. Ahaziah refused to seek Yahweh and dies in his sins. Even though Elijah has faced the wickedness of men, God has used him as His messenger.

What would be on your list if that same question was asked of you?
