Just as the dew revives vegetation, so does the operation of God's active force, or spirit, will awaken the dead from their sleep. Elias' battle is over. He maintained his friendship, integrity and devotion to his creator, Jehovah. Now he is resting, waiting for the day when Jesus Christ will call his name. (John 5:28;29)
