TOPIC: Where Is The Lord God Of Elijah? (II)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 17:38-58, 1 Samuel 18, John 18:5-33, John 17:1-5, Psalm 68:1-6
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 18:27-40 (KJV)
27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.
31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the Lord came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
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.
37 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.
38 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.
39 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.
40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
MEMORY VERSE: “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.” – 1 Kings 18:39
The Lord God of Elijah wields unconquerable power. He never fails.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I DECREE THAT TODAY, THE GOD OF ELIJAH WILL MANIFEST HIS POWER AND WONDERS IN YOUR SITUATION, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
We learnt yesterday that by the help of the Holy Spirit, Elisha introduced us to the Lord God of Elijah. We found that his call upon the Lord God of Elijah produced a miracle. The result served as a proof that the God of Elijah is the living, sovereign and miracle-working God. I would like to deepen your understanding of who the God of Elijah is and what you stand to gain by connecting to Him.
First, the God of Elijah is all-conquering. He is a jealous and all-powerful God that defeats idolatry, false prophets and apostasy. Ahab and Jezebel had allowed Baal worship to turn the heart of Israel away from Jehovah. The souls of all Israelites were so precious to God that He raised Elijah and used him to judge Israel and end the apostasy. In the same way, God was so passionate about redeeming the souls of mankind that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, as the ultimate sacrifice for man’s redemption.
Second, the God of Elijah fights for His children and gives them victory. When God appeared as the defender of the Israelites, Moses and the people he led saw the salvation of God. When Goliath came against the children of Israel to defy the armies of the Living God, David demonstrated the power of God. Goliath fell and died. On Mount Carmel, when Elijah called on the God of Israel, who answers by fire, the prophets of Baal were humiliated and were all killed. Whenever you call on the God of Elijah to fight for you, be assured that your victory will manifest, in the name of Jesus.
The God of Elijah solves all kinds of problem, be it global, national or family problems. He delivered the family of the widow of Zarephath from death due to hunger. The moment Elijah got to their home, heaven ensured that their food supply never ceased until the famine ended. Dearly beloved, is there a need in your life? Are you going through a dry season? Call upon the God of Elijah now. He will end your dry season and supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, give me the mantle of Your power, in the name of Jesus.
- I connect my life and destiny to the God of Elijah, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of Elijah, use me to win souls for you all over the world, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of Elijah, arise and destroy idolatrous practices in all nations of the world, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of Elijah, arise and loose the souls of men that the enemy has tied to idols, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of Elijah, arise and let evil priests and priestesses on satanic altars scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- I declare that the God of Elijah is my provider, I shall be satisfied even in the time of famine, in the name of Jesus.
