Part 1 – When a Prophet Talks Trash 
1 Kings 18

  • Ahab was in trouble for his idolatry, though he saw Elijah as the problem (v.17-18)
  • The people were in trouble for their idolatry, though they were keeping God around (v.19-21)
  • Sinful Spiral: idolatry leads to immorality, which leads to more idolatry.
  • There is no answer for the people’s idolatry (v.21)
  • There is an expected answer in the ritual (v.22-24)
  • There is no answer from the people’s idol (v.25-29)
  • There is a powerful answer from God (v.30-38)
  • It is amazing that fire fell and the sacrifice was consumed
  • It is more amazing that when the fire fell, the people were not consumed with the sacrifice
  • There was another sacrifice on another hill that led to repentance and the faith-filled confession of His Lordship
