My friend Wally<a href="http://Elijah-How One Man Made a Difference-Part 10 – http://wp.me/p503cN-4d9“>http://Elijah-How One Man Made a Difference-Part 10 – http://wp.me/p503cN-4d9 did an excelent job on the great showdown, really just a show of our Awesome God. 1 Kings 18:22-40 Please check his site out.
I am left with just a few comments:
When you know and recognize the Power and Love of our Lord, you need not jump around, yell and make a spectacle of yourself. Just quietly, speak the Lords will and expect Him to honor His Word.
Elijah is calling the shots, from the King on down, because of the drought, the Prophet forecast, they paid attention to the Prophets commands.
Elijah, the Prophet of God, was not above having a little fun, as their god could not be found. He also wasn’t surprised at the Lords responce, he was prepared for the next requirement.
The people fell before the Lord and fulfilled His command in bringing the prophets of Baal to justice.
Elijah then predicted the comming rain.
Hopefully Wally will leave me something to say as we continue on this wonderful journey through the life of Elijah. lol
