And behold, the word of Jehovah [came] to him, and he said to him, What doest thou here, Elijah? 10 And he said, I have been very jealous for Jehovah the God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I am left, I alone, and they seek my life, to take it away. 11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before Jehovah. And behold, Jehovah passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before Jehovah: Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (Darby, I Kings 19: 9-12)
Eddy: “The Soul-inspired patriarchs heard the voice of Truth, and talked with God as consciously as man talks with man.” Also, “The understanding, even in a degree, of the divine All-power destroys fear, and plants the feet in the true path, -- the path which leads to the house built without hands ‘eternal in the heavens.’”
Self-righteous, condemnatory and prideful behavior appear in both religious and non-religious people. They act like a mental fog which robs us of kindness, empathy, compassion and healing power. Bad influences can be perniciously deceiving, or loud and intimidating. But because they lack TRUTH, they are false and impotent. On the other hand, spiritual thoughts -- the "voice" of TRUTH -- exude the preponderant power of LOVE-GOODNESS. They represent MIND reflected in us, and with them we exude grace, intelligence, and healing efficacy. They vanquish sickness, lack, fear, anger, insecurity, envy, resentment and vengeance. Divine grace is ultimate power because with its holy gentleness it blesses and redeems all.
