    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | November 13, 2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    “I have seven thousand in Israel, who have never bent the knee to nor bowed to Baal” – A Word of Encouragement from God By: Msgr. Charles PopeEvery now and again in times like these, I think of the prophet Elijah, anxious and fretting in a cave, so depressed he could barely eat. He was fleeing from Queen Jezebel, who sought his life. As Elijah looked to his beloved Israel, he saw a rather discouraging portrait of fellow Jews who were either too confused or too fearful to resist the religion of the Baals required by Jezebel. He seems...

    Ahead of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s first public hearing Wednesday, Democrats on the committee say they’re launching an online clearinghouse to deal with questions already asked and answered and dispel falsehoods about the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack. They say the website is intended to provide answers to questions that have consistently been raised surrounding the attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, such as why security was inadequate despite repeated requests and whether the Pentagon failed to deploy resources that could have saved lives on the night of the attack. ” ‘Benghazi...

    San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has responded that, despite criticism from political leaders in his home state, he will attend the March for Marriage this week, because his position requires him to act as a defender of the Catholic faith. In a letter released today, Cordileone wrote that he is required “as a bishop, to proclaim the truth—the whole truth—about the human person and God’s will for our flourishing ... especially the truth about marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife,” Cordileone wrote. “That is what I will be doing on June 19th.” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone Political figures...

    “This is the law. And every two years — let me tell you something. Every two years I come to the Congress, just like my good friend, Mr. Labrador, we put up our hands to swear to uphold the Constitution and the laws of this country. It is the law.” That’s what Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings told Anderson Cooper last October. What was he talking about you may wonder. Was it the disastrous Fast and Furious scandal and the cover-up that followed? No, Rep. Cummings dismissed questions over the DOJ Attorney General Eric Hold’s role in the affair as “an...

    The 2,000-year-old Jobar Synagogue in the Syrian capital of Damascus was looted and burned to the ground. The Syrian army loyal to President Bashar Assad and rebel forces are blaming each other for the destruction of the historic synagogue ... The Jobar synagogue was built atop a cave that, according to tradition, was used by the prophet Elijah to conceal himself from prosecution. The synagogue is said to have been built by Elijah's successor, the prophet Elisha, and repaired during the first century by Eleazar ben Arach.

    Mike Huckabee rallied hundreds of Southern Baptists on a conference call Friday night in support of Todd Akin, offering advice about how they can help the embattled Missouri Senate candidate stay in the race — while acknowledging Akin still may have to bow out. “This could be a Mt. Carmel moment,” said the former Arkansas governor, referring to the holy battle between Elijah and the prophets of Baal in the book of Kings. “You know, you bring your gods. We’ll bring ours. We’ll see whose God answers the prayers and brings fire from heaven. That’s kind of where I’m praying:...

    The Falls Church News-Press ^ | September 20, 2011 | Wayne Besen
    In August, fundamentalist preacher Dr. Michael Brown organized a regimen of red shirted Bible-thumpers to infiltrate Charlotte's gay pride event. Hundreds of zealots confronted and harassed festival attendees with their arrogant slogan "God Has A Better Way." The hatred and religious bigotry was appalling, but not surprising. What truly bothers me, however, was the lack of mainstream Christians standing up and speaking out against such fanatical behavior. Virtually every time I write about the Religious Right I'm reminded by the faithful that "not all Christians are like that." Of course, this is true and some of the most dedicated activists...

The Pope continued with his new series of catecheses on prayer, reflecting today on prayer in sacred Scripture, in particular on the prayer of the Prophet Elijah. * * * Dear brothers and sisters, In the religious history of ancient Israel, great importance was given to the prophets, to their teaching and their preaching.

    the daily caller ^ | 1/24/11 | Jonathan Strong
    Rep. Elijah Cummings, the combative foil to top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa, is making his first significant power move to cut Issa down to size, demanding authority to stop Issa from issuing congressional subpoenas “unilaterally.” In a Jan. 24 letter, Cummings claims Issa vowed to him privately to aggressively use his subpoena power “more expansively” than past oversight committee chairmen. Congressional subpoena power gives Issa almost unlimited authority to demand documents and compel testimony from the Obama administration. Now, Cummings is pushing to give Democrats input on which subpoenas Issa issues and force a committee vote on any...

    Last month, Louis Farrakhan, the “National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam,” sent a three-page letter to the leaders of 16 major Jewish organizations demanding reparations for alleged crimes Jews have perpetrated against African Americans. Along with the letter, Farrakhan sent two books, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” and “Jews Selling Blacks: Slave Trade by American Jews,” written by unidentified members of the Nation of Islam’s Historical Research Team. Elijah Muhammad’s National Representative claims that the books contain evidence of Jewish crimes against the black community.

    ENOCH AND ELIJAH: R.I.P.By M. Thomas Wark   Introduction:     Christians who believe in the immortality of the soul or spirit sometimes point to the antediluvian patriarch Enoch and the prophet Elijah as examples of men who have never died and are alive in heaven.     Enoch is sometimes further taken as a type of the "pre-tribulation rapture" of the Body of Christ at the end of this dispensation! According to this theory, just as Enoch was "snatched away" to heaven and safety before the Flood, so also will Christians at the end of the dispensation of grace be...

Was he immediately taken to heaven? No! Because Jesus Himself said: "No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the...

    James 5:17 - Elijah was a man with a nature like ours... Elijah! What's the first mental picture that popped into your mind when you read the name, Elijah? Well, if you remember anything from the Old Testament account of Elijah, you probably visualized a fearless prophet dressed in rough wilderness garb, calling down fire from heaven. Right on! That's Elijah all right--on Mount Carmel. There on that mountain Elijah courageously spoke out against the religious idolatry of his day. He called down fire from heaven and proved to the people of Israel that the pagan gods called Baals were...

I research obsessively, and tend to accumulate a great deal of information. I believe the Bible is the Word of God, interpreted and translated by humans. I believe things were left out of the Bible, deliberately and for a purpose. I have one friend I can discuss these topics with, who won't look at me as if I have lost my mind. What's this to do with Enoch, Noah, etc? Quite simply put, I believe then is now. We're there.

    From the crusades in the Holy Land came the desire to follow Christ in his homeland by living a life of solitude and service. One such group settled on Mount Carmel, a place inspired by the figure and spirit of the Prophet Elijah. They wanted a life of prayer, and work that would enhance their spiritual life. At times, these original hermits found themselves at service to the pilgrims who sought their hospitality and spiritual direction. The Church officially recognized their Rule of life as an Order in 1206. . . Carmel in Europe In the 13th century the...
