Five Conditions of Answered Prayer, Part 2
The most powerful energy source on the planet is prayer! The effectual, fervent prayer of one righteous man prevails in every situation, but many Christians give up in discouragement before the answer materializes.
Elisha the prophet is the best illustration of the extraordinary power of one praying man. One of the more humorous O.T. figures, this prophet of God takes us on a journey of miracles and dominion through prayer.
And let’s not overlook the “Power of One Praying Woman.” In Jesus’ motivational account of the widow and the unjust judge (Luke 18), we are further enlightened to the undeniable success of persistent, overcoming prayer.
It’s not a brass trumpet, but a shofar—a ram's horn. There are 4 different blasts: One was long, increasing in loudness, the one that sounded on Mt. Sinai when God spoke. God came down, and Moses went up, symbolic of the rapture of the saints. Rabbis say that Satan can’t tell the difference between the shofar & God’s voice. In Revelation, John confirmed God’s voice sounded like a shofar saying, “Come up here” typifying the rapture. Paul called it “the last trump” that will wake up the dead in Christ & summon the living to be caught up together to meet the Lord in the air. It is not the seventh trumpet of Rev. 8 as the “mid-trib” stance claims—meaning the living Church will go through the first half of the Tribulation. We have been delivered from the wrath to come!
