The prophet Elijah’s victory over the evil “prophets of Baal” catalysed a revival in the prophetic ministry in Israel (see 2 Kings 2:7) – indeed, the so-called “company” of the prophets is identified with that period, with Elisha’s being anointed to the office of national prophet (1 Kings 19:19, 2 Kings 2:15).
Elijah faced severe persecution as Jezebel, Ahab and their cohorts were hell-bent on wiping him him as prophet off the face of the earth. But the LORD his God was with him. And God granted him success in calling the people to repent of unbelief and their ignorant, sentimental tolerance of wickedness.
This album aims to capture, using software synthesizers, the key episodes in Elijah’s life and ministry. While I would like, one day, to rearrange this music using live orchestra, instruments and voices, for now, I hope you enjoy this Biblical concept album, Elijah the Tishbite.
