Were 7000 Believers with Elijah in Israel?


“Yet I have left Me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” [I Kings 19:18]

“I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.” [Romans 11:4]

“I'm just as sure tonight, as it was by Elijah under the tree; You've got seven thousand yet that hasn't bowed their knee to Baalim. You've got many saints in the earth today waiting for the coming of the Lord.” [What Does Thou Here? Jeffersonville IN 59-0301E]

“Nervous, setting out there, said, "I'm no better than the rest of my fathers. I'm no more than any other prophets. Now, Lord, take my life. I'm the only that's left. I'm the only one that's preaching the right Gospel. So just take my life. Let me go." They get all flusterated like that. But God said, "No, I--I--I--I got--I got seven thousand more, that had never bowed their knee to Baalim yet. See? But I--that's all right Elijah, you're doing a great work. But I--I still got another bunch, you see, that you don't know yet." [The Forgotten Beatitude, Chicago IL 61-0425e]

“Elijah wanted to stay with the Word. He was a real prophet. The other prophets had said, "Oh, well, it doesn't make much difference. Jehovah doesn't care, you know." Jehovah does care. It's got to be His Word. And Elijah stood boldly on that Word with THUS SAITH THE LORD. God give him a little secret one day. He said, "I got seven thousand, Elijah, that you're witness to out here. They haven't got the nerve enough to come out and claim it. They're hiding around in bushes; but yet in their heart they're My servants. They haven't bowed a knee to Baalim. They're afraid to do it, but I'm giving you a sign, and you are a sign. Stand out there and stand on My Word. I will take care of you. Give them a sign." Hallelujah. God send us something like that, who will be a sign of God's Word. And every promise God promised will be backed up in that person, 'cause he's a sign, a forgotten sign. Oh, they thought because Ahab was a great king and all the nations feared him, that was good enough. But Elijah was a sign of the Word. That's a true prophet: a sign of the Word. So while he was being the sign of the Word, they didn't believe him; they had no use for him.” [A True Sign That's Overlooked, Jeffersonville IN 61-1112]

“So Elijah when he got through, he water-soaked those logs all over with twelve barrels of water, and poured them upon top of there. He stepped out there just as cool as he could be. Why? God can't lie. God told him. He said, "Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that You're God, and I'm Your servant, and I did this at Your command, because it's THUS SAITH THE LORD. I did this because You told me to do it, because it's according to Your Word. Let it be known now that You're God." And the fire of the Lord fell, consumed sacrifice, water-soaked logs, licked up the rocks, and everything else, and took everything away. Then Israel cried, the seven thousand, "Let God be God." [A True Sign That's Overlooked, Jeffersonville IN 61-1112]



“Fell down and said, "God, let it be today. These people was against You. These people's broke up in all kinds of denominations out yonder. But today You proved Yourself. You're God. And the people said, 'Throw away Baalim.' And I've killed them thousands of priests. They're out of the way now, Lord. All the hindrances is gone, the little barriers that separated us." A Methodist would like to come worship with the Baptist; the Baptist would like to come with the Pentecostals, the true in heart down there, that faithful seven thousand; but they can't do it. If they do, they're kicked out of their churches. Some of them don't care; they come anyhow.” [A True Sign That's Overlooked, Jeffersonville IN 61-1112]

"As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man; eight souls was saved." In the days of Elijah there was seven thousand only had it. Oh, just think of where we're living now. When John came on the scene, the little church was certainly in the minority, but there was empty vessels to pour the Oil in. Hallelujah. God, let us empty ourselves up.” [Perfect Strength By Perfect Weakness, Jeffersonville In 61-1119]

“Let us look at Elijah when he had been forsaken. Why? Because he had stayed true to the Word. He said, "All men has forsaken me." And he was excommunicated from society, from the organization, from the even national organization, or, the national church of Israel, the priests and all had throwed him out, and he had not even a coat as much as Paul, but a little piece of sheepskin, or, leather draped around him, and set up on a mountain, and was fed by the birds. Yes, sir. Why? For the Word of God's sake, 'cause he was true to THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, they all went modern. The first lady of the land, Jezebel, has got all of the fashions and things out. And the priests had give in to it and so forth, and all of the preachers and so forth, they coordinated into it. But not Elijah, he stayed true to that Word. And for such a thing he was forsaken, till he cried out, "Lord, I'm the only one's left, and they even seek my life." But God give him some consolation, said, "I got seven thousand yet down there." [Present Stage Of My Ministry, Jeffersonville IN 62-0908]

“As they were a remnant according to election (these Jews are now), the remnant according to election in the days of Elijah's first ministry to the Jews, where seven thousand believers were kept away by the hand of God.” [The Seventh Seal, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324E]

“There were millions in Palestine at the days of the prophecy of Elijah, and seven thousand was saved out of millions.” [The Seventh Seal, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324E]
