from KHJnli.
I. Elijah Meeto Ahnb. (vv. 17. IS).
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.
Ing between self and
both Cod and

jlltiii-e of the people, (v. 'Jl).
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. The real differ
ence In the Issue of prayer Is tho
person to whom prayer Is innde.
2. The Offering by Elijah (vv. f!0
.10). (1) The -people Invited faear
(v. .SO). His object was for them to
see the entire proceedings In order
to fully grasp the genuineness of the
test. (J). The altar repairs (vv. HO
85!). Elijah tool; twelve stones repre
senting the united nation. (II). Tho
ofTerlng on the altar (vv. ,13-35). Af
ter the bullock was In plnco he had
four barrels of water three times
emptied upon the sacrifice and the
wood so as to till the trench about
the altar. So sure was Elijah timt
(oil's power was suftlclent that ho
heaped difficulty upon dllllculty. (4).
Elijah's prayer (vv. .10, 37). (a) It
was bused upon covenants (v. 30).
The foundation upon which all real
prayer rests Is covenant relationship.
(!) Its object was Cod's exaltation
(v. 30). Elijah was Jealous for God's
glory. 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.
