Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries

The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.

Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.

For the Glory of God

Romans 11:36 “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.”

The verse above comes at the end of Paul’s presentation of the gospel to the church in Rome. It is one of the most glorious, sweeping statements about God’s sovereignty in all of the Scriptures. It should not be one of those declarations in God’s Word that we pass over quickly. As you read it, doesn’t the grandeur and reality of it make you pause, contemplate, and worship? That’s my aim in this article.

God, the Great Giver

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above, you heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.” Did you read that with the melody in mind as I do when I write it? These words were originally the last stanza of three morning hymns authored by Bishop Thomas Ken in 1684. In 1709, he made some final edits to the stanza and put it to music.1 The Doxology, is arguably one of the most known hymns in the world. The point of the hymn is that God is the Great Giver.

Identity Principle #4 in Christ - Part 7

blog

This series of blogs have come from my men’s study series, Walking Worthy as Sons of God. The focus has been on who we are as sons of our fathers and in this month’s blog the spotlight is on who we are as sons of our heavenly Father. When God came to earth, He came as a son, not as a Father, in order to bring us to God. He came to reveal the heavenly Father to us so that we might realize that our lives are determined by our identity with Him as sons of His Father.

"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!
