The Dews of Carmel

“As the dews of Carmel, so shall the knowledge of God descend upon them!”
D&C 128:19
I sat upon Mount Carmel waiting for the dews of knowledge to descend upon me. Drew and I had awoken to Mendelsohn’s oratorio of Elijah in anticipation for this day when we would review the story of this bold and courageous prophet. I’m so grateful that my kids were able to sing in a performance of Elijah years ago and that Brandon immersed them in the life of this great man. We stood upon Carmel where Elijah had his epic confrontation with the prophets of Baal. I love that after this amazing public display of Gods power, Elijah is taught that the Lord was not in the wind or the earthquake or the fire but in a still small voice.

In the afternoon we went to Tel Megiddo and were reminded of the battle of Armageddon and the prophecies of the last days.
