Elijah's confrontation with the prophets of Baal happens after, not before, this passage--1 Kings 18:20-40. He's not "on the run" from that when he goes to Sidon.
Thank you for this sermon, I always appreciate the teaching of the 12-Steps in direct application to Christians. One other perspective on the 12-Steps in AA, is that not only are you to admit to a Higher Power, but you are to be absolutely honest. As I see
Acts 17:27, if a person honestly reaches out to God, he will be found. Yes, mankind is idolatrous, because we substitute the truth of God for a lie. That can be done with any thing. But I see more people seeking the truth of the Loving Heavenly Father through AA and other addiction groups. We should build on then, not tear them down.
I am Donnie De Loney and I am north of you in Ashdown, AR. We are 16 miles north of Texarkana. I am sorry to hear about your church fire but God will provide everything you need.
I enjoy your messages very much. You are a good preacher and I pray that God continues to use you in a powerful way.

Execellent sermon material.
Great message on the importance of being broken before God. How the Lord will use that brokeness to get us where we need to be with Him.
Romans 1:24-25 and James 14-15 also encase this argument. It is certainly plain to me. God created us with the ability to choose and He honors that ability -- He may not agree with it, but He honors it. However, He doesn't give up ... as long as there is breath in the body, there is hope for the soul!!!!
Pastor Jim May is one of my favorite contributors, and this is one of his most inspirational to me. I am a Congregational Christian Minister who asked for and received the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. This has cost me some in my ministry, and I have lost a few members who don't believe in tongues. I read Brother Mays sermons a lot because I want to learn as much as I can about Pentecostalism and the gifts of the spirit. Back to the sermon. Presents clearly that Jesus is the fulfillment of prophesy and the need to be filled with the spirit.
I believe that Bro May should read sermon by a bro Pentacostal Rev James Drake he takes an opposite view and makes many good points
