In times of great spiritual darkness it can be disconcerting for true believers to find themselves in a seeming beleaguered minority. At one time, the great prophet Elijah actually thought he was the only one standing up for God in a darkened Israel??
God graciously told him he had preserved 7,000 who had not bowed the knee to Baal in Israel.
1 Kings 19:18 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.
