“If you diligently heed to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by waters.” – Exodus 15 26-27 NKJV
In verse 26 of the 15th chapter of Exodus the Lord made a statute and an ordinance before the people of Israel right after crossing the Red Sea. The statute and ordinance called for the hearing of the voice of the Lord, doing what is right in His sight and keeping all of His commandments faithfully. It was only after hearing this message that the people arrived to an oasis in the wilderness called Elim.
The people of Israel were in great distress as they were all alone in the wilderness before reaching Elim. Their problems were confined to the simple necessities of life – food and water. Here in Iowa (and the rest of the US) we have an abundance of food and water but many of us are in a spiritual wilderness. Men are being tossed and turned by the gods of sex and money. Women are being tormented by the fact that society attributes all of their value to their outward appearance. The youth are crippled by loneliness as their parents have separated and put all the pressure on them to figure life out all on their own.
TheElimArrival team believes that God is putting forth a statute and ordinance upon this land just like He did before the Israelites years ago. He is calling all men to rise and up and become the soldiers of light they were created to be. He is calling all women to stand up and be the courageous women that they were created to be. He is reminding all the lonely souls that He can fulfill their every need.
We believe that God is calling us out of our little comfortable lives to proclaim this message to any pair of ears that will hear – and most importantly use the gifts and talents God has given us (music, teaching, preaching, writing) to communicate these truths especially to the youth of today.
Restoration and Revival will only come to our land when we decide to follow what God desires and reject the spirit and ruler of the world. All forces put together, THE ELIM ARRIVAL aims to reveal to the people of the world that God through His son Jesus offers the hope of redemption- a second chance, so that they too can arrive at their spiritual Elim and bring glory to the God who created them.
