At the Lord's command Klljali showed himself to Ahub. When Kll jali last was seen b.v Ahab he an nounced that rain would only be given by his word (17:1). In connection with the propbtt's appearance before Mm king, rain was promised. I. Ahab's Question. "Art thou he that t rouble) !i Israel V" (v. 17. Ahab' aim was to intimidate Klijah, to awo him into submission. J. Elijah's Answer, (v. 1S). He denied the charge and boldly de clared tli.'t the calamity which had befallen the tuition was caused by the idolatry of Aliah nil. I his family. II. Elijah's Challdnge. (vv. WIM). 1. The People Assembled, (vv. Ill, 1!0). The king convened the people at the urgent request of Elijah. L Elijah's Ulnglug Call to Decision (vv. 'JI-1.M). (1) The (piestton asked, "Wlm is your ("lotl, P.aal or the Lord?" (v. 'Jl). Many of the people had not wholly forsaken Cod. They at tempted to worship Haul. Many today tween two opinions.

Tlie I'liis may have been because of fear of the king or of ignorance, for many were of the opin!,n that to be religious was the only thing necessary. Ir respective of the being worshiped. There Is all the difference between merely worshiping and really wor shiping Cod that there is between hell and heaven, (,'t) The method of decision (vv. 22-'JI). Two sacri fices were to be provided one to be offered to P.aal, the other to Cod. The god who answered by lire was to bo the Cod. Tho people consented that tills was a fair test. Accepted sacri fice Is the grand and .supreme test by which Clod Is calling upon men everywhere to make the decision be tween Christ nnd the heathen gods. III. The Test Applied, (vv. 'J.VJD). 1. The Offering by the Prophets of Ihial (vv. 'J.VJ0). Elijah gave tho prophets of Haul the llrst opportunity to prove to the people as to whether Until was a real god.

Ills supreme desire was to honor and magnify the Lord, (c) It was for the salvation of the people. (v. 37). Ills heart yearned after Israel. lie was most desirous that they should come to Cod. (5) The re sult (vv. 38, .10). (a) The flro of the Lord fell and consumed not only tho Hucriflco but the wood, stones nnd dust, even licking up lite water In the trench, (b) The people fell on their faces and confessed that tho Lord was the Cod. IV. The Execution of Baal's Proph ets. (v. -10). The reason for this drastic action was that Israel's government was a theocracy. flod wns their king. Idolatry was treason against the king. These false prophets wero traitors to Cod and therefore should die. V. God'o Prophet Vindicated, (w. 11-1(1). The proof that Elijah wns CJod'a 1 prophet was Incomplete till rain came.
