And a letter came to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, “Thus says the LORD…”

The great prophet Elijah – so great that he represented all of the prophets at a mountaintop meeting with Jesus – was known for face to face encounters with God and humanity.

But he wrote at least one letter, recorded in 2 Chronicles 21:12. His words reached across national borders and from his day into the future.

Sometimes God is all about “write this down and send it.”

About the picture: It’s Hat Mountain in South Dakota’s Black Hills.  It reminded me of how Elijah, the Prophet associated with Mt. Carmel in the northern kingdom of Israel, sent a letter south to the kingdom of Judah.  As I looked at this picture I was struck by the feeble little fence – as though any barrier can stand in the way of God’s Word once loosed.
