(More Than 4) Reasons God Hides Prophets in Caves

Elijah's recorded ministry began making declarations in to a king. But soon he found himself in a cave. While I have been vocal about prophets coming out of the cave, there are times when God hides prophets in a cave--and with good reasons.

We find these principles in 1 Kings 17:1-6:

Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was one of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the Lord God of Israel lives before whom I stand, there will not be dew or rain these years except by my word."

The word of the Lord came to him, saying, "Go from here and turn eastward and hide by the Kerith brook, which is east of the Jordan. You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there."

So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and lived by the Kerith brook, which is east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.

If you are in a season of hiddenness, this video teaching will bless you!
