  • The Memorial That Disappeared Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Jun 11, 2021

    The story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal is a classic. What we sometimes forget is that a memorial, an altar to the LORD, was already there before Elijah came! The rest of the story is gripping!

    Introduction: The days of Elijah were some of the best and some of the worst in Israel’s history. One of the highest points took place when God responded to Elijah’s prayer in a way that nobody could deny. Not only did this take place in the presence of pagan prophets, the event also took place more

  • Elijah The Prophet Of Fire Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 11, 2021

    Elijah broke into the atmosphere of human history like a comet. We have no story of his birth or background. His coming was as sudden and mysterious as was his going in the flaming chariot.

    Elijah was the Luther of the Old Testament. He was God's man of the hour to begin a reformation and lead the children of Israel back to God. For about 50 years devotion to God had been decreasing. Ahab was now king in Israel, and he was more wicked than all who had gone before him. He married more

  • Team God

    Contributed by Jerico Layugan on Jan 6, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    Elijah (meaning “My God is Yahweh”) challenges the 450 prophets of baal (and other prophets) in a “my God, your gods face-off". Like Elijah, teaming up with God when facing battles in life will be a win-win situation.

    STORY PRELUDE Elijah confronts King Ahab and challenges baal. He sets the basic rule of the face-off, that is to use woods and a bull to be consumed by their gods as they call them. Though he seems alone, Elijah is on the offense. In his turn to call his God, he prepares the Lord’s altar using more

  • In This Manner Pray

    Contributed by Doug Houck on Dec 27, 2020

    How we pray depends on our concept of God. God is personal, and knows us better than we know ourselves. Prayer brings us into harmony with God.

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Mar 3, 2019

    Last week we looked at Samson. Samson was physically strong but in some ways he was spiritually weak. We, too can be strong in some areas but weak in others. Today, we'll look at Elijah. He was bold and courageous...well, most of the time.

    JUST LIKE US (part four) Last week we looked at the example of Samson. When Samson was born he was given a special Nazirite vow. He couldn't drink alcohol or even grape juice. And he couldn't cut his hair. These conditions were to indicate that he would be noticeably set apart for a more
