In 1 Kings 21:28-29, God explains that Ahab’s punishment will be delayed because of his sincere, humble repentance.
If Ahab can receive forgiveness, so can we!
In 1 Kings 18:20-40, we read about Elijah’s showdown with the prophets of Baal.
Funny how sarcastic Elijah becomes when he senses victory.
In 1 Kings 17, Elijah predicts a drought, relies upon ravens and a widow for sustenance, and raises a boy from the dead.
- Predicts a Drought
- Widow at Zarephath
- Meets Obadiah
- Confronts Ahab
- Defeats Prophets of Baal
- Calls Elisha
- Confronts King of Samaria
- Calls Down Fire From Heaven
- Double Portion of Spirit on Elisha
- Caught Up to Heaven on Chariots of Fire
Elijah’s name appears in the NIV 105 times.
I’m looking forward to this study.
My favorite memory of Elijah is his sarcastic treatment of the prophets of Baal.
