Elijah Won the Victory.

T" ~f. U) "As the Lord God of Israel llveth"?'He
knew that he represented
the living God, therefore did not fear.
(2) "Before whom I stand"?Because
Elijah stood before God, he
gould stand before Ahab.
(3) "There shal^ hot be-dew nor rain
these years, but according to my word."
?Drought was the punishment (or
idolatry (Deut. 11:18, 17).
II. A Challenge to Baal Worship
(1 Kings 18.17-46).
As soon as Elijah hod delivered his.
message concerning the drought, he
retired from the king's sight,' while
penalty of the kind's aina should
be visited npSn The Tand. ' -ar*?- _
1. Elijah Shows Himself-to Ahab
(TT. 17, 18^
I, (1) Ahnb's question (v. 17). Ills
aim In this question was no donbt to
Intimidate Elijah', to awe him into
submission. The devil goes about as
a roaring Hon (1 1'et. 0:8).
(2) Elijah's answer (v. 18). He
denied the charge aftd boldly declared
that tbh~ calamity which had befallen
the nation wan caused by the Idolatry
of Ahab anjl his family.
2. The Bold Challenge (vv. 18-24).
(1) The neoole jw??embl? In lft.
*8)). At the urgennequeit of Elijah
the king convened the people."""
fat The rlqgfog rnll to dcclBlon (TV.
s. e. The question aeked (v. 21). Many
\ of the people bad not wholly forsaken
Ood. They attempted to worship both
Ood and Baal.
b. The silence of the people (v. 21).
This may have been because of fear of
the king , or Ignorance, for many were
of the opinion that.to be religious was
the only thing necessary, Irrespective
of ithe' being worshiped.
c. The method of decision (vv. 2224).
Two - sacrifices were to be provided,
one to be offered to Baal, the
other to Ood. 0 The one who answered
by fire, was to be the God.
8. The Test Applied (vv. 25-30).
(1) Offering by the prbpheta of
Banl (vr. 25-29). Elijah gave the
prophets of Baal the first opportunity
tOL.prove to the people as to whether
? Baal was a real god. .
(2)? TTiTj offering- by Elijah (vv. DORS).
a. People Invited near (v. 30).
; There arc no secrets In God's worship.
b. The ultur repaired (vv. 30-32).
^ Elijah took tweive stones representing
the united nation. ^
o. The-offering on tho altar (vv.
33-36). After the bullock was In place
K , he. hod four barrels of water three
