And Elijah, by his very name, is declaring that it is Yahweh who is responsible for all this.
And he says “How long are you going to waver between two opinions?”........God's opinion of what is right, or Baal's opinion of what is right.......... Is he saying that to you today….then he says:
Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.
And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.
And that means if I’m going to know what God is like, I’m going to be able to watch you, and if you want to know what God is like, you’re going to be able to watch each other. This is really what we celebrate in the season of Pentecost, the season which reminds us that the Spirit of God has been, and continues to be, poured onto and into whoever asks.
