I have a PLUMMET in my hand...

Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth

the law, happy is he.

I. WHAT DO YOU SEE? A PLUMMET IN THE HAND OF GOD'S MAN...

I SEE THE GOD BEHIND THE MAN...

A. DO WE UNDERSTAND PLUMMET?

plumb, ball of lead or heavy material attached to the end of a line to find the depth of water or

determine the vertical on a upright surface, perpendicular...

B. A Plumb BOB is the mark of beginning a NEW WORK...

C. YOU MAY SEE A PLUMB BOB, IT IS MORE THAN THAT... IT IS THE BEGINNING OF

WHAT GOD CAN DO...

Zech. 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall

see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord,

which run to and fro through the whole earth.

D. God is awaiting...

Psalm 68:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David.

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

II. CAN WE SEE NOTHING? WHERE IS THE GOD OF ELIJAD? NO: WHERE ARE THE

ELIJAH'S OF GOD THAT CAN SEE BEYOND NOTHING...

WHAT DO YOU SEE IN DARK DAYS? PEOPLE WERE EATING DONKEY HEADS AND

PIGEON MANURE...

THE TIMES WERE EVIL AND DOOM AND GLOOM WAS ALL AROUND...

7 YEARS OF EXTREME DROUGHT... AHAB,THE KING, WAS MEAN AND CRUEL TO THE

PREACHER. JEZEBEL HAD MADE A VOW TO SEE THE MESSAGE AND THE PREACHER

DEATH SOON... WHAT DO YOU SEE IN DARK DAYS?

A. While King Ahab and Queen Jezebel were working in the flesh and trying to destroy God's man

and destroy God's message...

B. In the midst of total darkness and extreme DRYNESS the PREACHER HEARS RAIN?

CAN YOU SEE RAIN BEFORE THE RAIN?

1 Kings 18:41 And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound

of abundance of rain.

C. EVERY ONE SAW NOTHING...

1 Kings 18:43 And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up,

and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.

D. WE HAVE A BIG PROBLEM IN THE CHURCH: PEOPLE SEE NOTHING...

1. 2 TIMES NOTHING...

2. 3 TIMES NOTHING...

3. 4 TIMES NOTHING...

4. 5 TIMES NOTHING...

5. 6 TIMES NOTHING ...

6. 7 TIMES NOTHING...

III. 7 TIMES NOTHING IS WHAT? MORE NOTHING? A GOOD BELIEVER CAN SEE

BEYOND THE NOTHING...

A. WELL MAYBE I CAN SEE SOMETHING? SOMETHING SMALL?

1 Kings 18:44 And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth

a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab,

Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.

B. A SMALL CLOUD IS A BIG DREAM OF POTENTIAL...

1 Kings 18:45 And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with

clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.

[46] And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before

Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

C. THE PREACHER RAN 18 MILES FASTER THAN THE KING'S BEST HORSES...

ELIJAH THE PREACH KNEW THE GOD... ELIJAH SAT ON THE PORCH AND WATCHED
