Why the 7000
In I & II Kings, the Bible tells the story of the nations of Israel and Judah as they fall deeper and deeper into idolatry, apostasy, and immorality. Throughout this time, God raises up prophets to rebuke and challenge the people and the kings. One of these prophets is Elijah. After slaying the false prophets of Baal, his life is hunted by Jezebel, the wicked queen of Israel, and he flees to a cave in the wilderness. He is very despondent, and when God asks him why he's in the cave, he says, "I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away."
God tells Elijah to go out on a mountain, and then through a strong wind, an earthquake, fire, and a still small voice, God lets Elijah know that He is still in control. God then tells Elijah, "Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him."
We are living in a time similar to Elijah's. Immorality, violence and godlessness are on the rise. And all that we hold dear on this good earth is rapidly being stripped away -- strong families, honest governments, a culture that empowers our children, and the ability to worship God freely. But if we as Christians unite and stand for God and His Word, first in every area of our lives, and then in the lives of others, we can make a difference and turn our nation, and the world, back to God. That is why we formed God's 7000.
