.Wal Mart story
.Elijah shows up after 3 years
.God said he would send rain
.Yet Elijah prays hard for rain- why?
.If God gave you a promise- you still need to pray
.Ahab looks for water- to feed the animals
.But the people are starving too
.We live in a day where the western world ‘wastes’ extreme amounts of money on many things [One news person moves to another network- and gets millions of dollars- for a morning talk show- one football player makes millions- a famous local attorney spends 6 million on his sons birthday party- just to give a few examples]
.Yet kids are actually starving to death around the world- not good

This is a famous chapter for bible readers- Elijah has a showdown with the false prophets- and wins.
Instead of commenting on the whole chapter- I want to hit on a few points.
We see Elijah as a messenger of God- and in this victory- we also see a foreshadowing of the future sacrifice of Christ to come. [overblog- see here- https://ccoutreach87.com/2018/02/01/kings-18/ ]
Elijah has a bull- and he places his sacrifice on an altar dedicated to God [a type of the Cross]
