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.

Love's Foundation: One God, Who is Love

One of Jesus’ most popular parables illustrated the importance of the foundation upon which people build their lives. The sand and rock were metaphors He used for foundations upon which we build our lives. One foolish man built his house on the sand, but the other man, who was wise, built his house upon the rock. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24). Jesus is the rock! Jesus, Himself, is the solid foundation for everyone who aspires to be a channel of His love. He is not a mere foundation upon which we build our own lives, or a good model for us to follow, but He lives in us and fills us with all that He is!

Don't Miss the Opportunities

    Every situation is an opportunity to trust God, and every relationship is an opportunity to love with Jesus. Every day is filled with opportunities. If unbelief and idolatry lurk within us, then they will take hold of us as we go through trying events and as we encounter uncooperative people, and they will hinder the flow of faith and love through us to others.

Loving His Body = Loving Jesus

    I hope you read or listened to last month’s Chariot of Fire on knowing and loving Jesus. In that issue, we saw how the apostle Paul concluded from his life-changing encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus that to know and love members of Jesus’ body is to know and love Jesus Himself. How thrilling and inspiring it is to know that when we love each other, we are loving Jesus.

"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!
