Summary: BECAUSE WE ARE ENGAGE IN SUPER BOWL GAME CALL LIFE AND I NEED TO PAUSE AND DROP SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND AND THAT IS THAT IF YOU DON`T KNOW JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOR OF YOUR LIFE YOU`RE LOSING THE GAME
1 Kings 18:21-24 (KJV) And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
1 Kings 18:36- And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
 Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.
VERY BRIEFLY THIS MORNING I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT OF
(WINNING LIFE`S SUPER BOWL)
TODAY MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IS SUPER BOWL SUNDAY
AND IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT
AS CHRISTIANS WE ARE ENGAGE IN A SUPER BOWL CONTEST FOR OUR SOULS EVERY DAY
THATS WHY THE APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US IN HIS LETTER TO THE CHURCH EPHESUS THE
6:11-13 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the
wiles of the devil.
 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
YOU SEE TODAY IS SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IN THE
BUT EVERYDAY IS SUPERBOWL DAY FOR A CHILD OF GOD
BECAUSE WE ARE ENGAGE IN SUPER BOWL GAME CALL LIFE
AND I NEED TO PAUSE AND DROP SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND
AND THAT IS THAT IF YOU DON`T KNOW JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOR OF YOUR LIFE
YOU`RE LOSING THE GAME
BUT IF YOU KNOW HIM AN HAS CONFESS HIM AS LORD AND YOUR SAVIOR OF YOUR LIFE
I NEED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON A WINNING TEAM
BECAUSE YOU HAVE GOD AS THE OWNER
THE HOLY SPIRIT AS YOUR GENERAL MANAGER
AND THE MOST VALUEABLE PLAYER IN HISTORY OF MAN KIND ON YOUR TEAM
AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST
BUT AS WE EXAMINE THE TEXT
ELIJAH`S IS ON MOUNT CARMEL HAVING A FACE OFF WITH THE 450 FALSE PROPHETS OF BAAL`S
AND IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND
THAT ELIJAH WAS IN GAME SHAPE
HE WAS GAME READY
AND HE HAD HIS GAME FACE ON READY TO RUMBLE
HE WAS GAME SHAPE BECAUSE ELIJAH HAD BEEN TO EVERY PRACTICE
ELIJAH HAD SOME GOOD DAYS AT PRACTICE
AS WELL HE HAD SOME BAD DAYS AT PRACTICE
YOU SEE IT WAS A GOOD DAY OF PRATICE
WHEN ELIJAH WENT TO HEN PECK AHAB AND TOLD HIM THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A 3 YEAR DROUGHT IN THE LAND
IT WAS A GOOD DAY OF PRACTICE WHEN THE WATER WAS FLOWING AT THE BROOK OF CHERITH
AND GOD INSTITUTED THE 1ST MEAL ON WINGS PROGRAM
BUT NOT ONLY DID ELIJAH HAVE SOME GOOD PRACTICES BUT HE ALSO HAD SOME BAD PRACTICES SESSION
YOU SEE IT WAS A BAD PRACTICE SESSION WHEN THE BROOK OF CHERITH STOP FLOWING
IT WAS A BAD PRACTICE SESSION WHEN HIS MEAL ON WINGS PROGRAM WAS SHUT DOWN BY
HEAVEN BECAUSE GOD HAD SOMETHING BETTER FOR ELIJAH TO DO
BUT IN THE MIDIST OF IT ALL ELIJAH REALIZE THAT IF IT WAS`NT FOR THE
BAD PRACTICES THAT HE WOULD`NT BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE GOOD PRACTICES
THAT WHY I FEEL THAT MY CLAIM IS VALID THAT ELIJAH WAS IN GAME SHAPE
