Here in Kentucky, we have many caves and even one named Mammoth Cave that is an attraction site. I’ve never lived in a cave in the natural but I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in fear of your life. I cannot imagine the sanitary conditions or the animals, bats, and types of creatures living in that type of habitation. In the book of 1st Kings we find a hundred prophets of Yah hiding in caves for their lives.
These prophets were being fed and given water by a man who worked for the king. Obadiah in Hebrew means slave of Yah (God) Oh what an amazing name! These men, were no doubt, often in prayer. There was a drought for three and a half years and then Elijah shows up on the scene and slaughters all the false prophets. This I believe is where we are at right now in the spirit. The prophets who have been in hiding during this season of drought are going to come forth. These men and women will not fear man. These prophets in these caves are not named. They have no status or big name television network—no mega church or #1 bestselling book, but they have been humbled and they have a voice.
Elijah told the people this: “How long are you going to jump back and forth between two positions? If ADONAI is God, follow him; but if it’s Ba‘al, follow him!” 1 Kings 18:21. The spirit of Baal has entered the churches but the Father is raising up men like Elijah and Moses to sound the alarm and release the people from bondage and a mixed up form of worship. The Christians and the Torah-obedient congregations are going to have to come together and become one. The Christians are going to have to come out of traditions of men and the Torah-obedient are going to have to work on adding to their truth– yes, adding love, and the Spirit behind the Torah. Obadiah was a man who was a slave to His Father. What does that mean? He was a servant and servants obey their Masters.
This cave dwelling does something—two things actually. It separates and prepares the prophet. After the prophets voices have been silenced for years in the caves, when they come forth their voices will be as TRUMPETS. They will blast and when they do men and women will have to choose between two opinions. Jeremiah Johnson said it like this, “People will hit the floor or they will hit the door.” This will be a testing and time of throwing off the world, the traditions of the world, and everything the world has to offer. This will be a time of sanctification. These prophets will not only sound the alarm but they will be as Daniel and Ezra, they will weep with the people over their own sins and the sins of the nation.
Now, I am going to wrap this up. Here is what I see. ““Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of (an abundance of RAIN) the ROAR of a heavy shower.” 1 Kings 18:41.
