In the three years and six months of drought during the time of Elijah, God appointed ravens to bring food to him. [1 Kings 17:1-7] In the New Testament, the famine of three years and six months in the time of Elijah is connected to the age of the church, and the role of the holy Spirit. The age of the church is represented by the same symbolic period, of three years and six months, which is half of seven years, or seven times. Together with the ministry of Jesus and John the Baptist, the whole time assigned to the church is “seven times.” Note that a “time” can be expressed in various units.
