Those in authority called Elijah the “troubler of Israel” because they wanted to continue mixing their idolatry, baal worship and murderous ways into the kingdom of God without interruption.
*[[1Ki 18:17-18]] KJV* And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
But really they were the troublers of Israel and Elijah was sent by God to bring true peace back to the kingdom of God.
Jesus didnt say to be a peaceKeeper.. Sometimes you have to confront things and be a peaceMAKER.
*[[Mat 5:9]] KJVLite* Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
