In Elijah and King Ahab, readers meet Elijah the prophet as he tries to teach King Ahab about God. When Elijah issues a challenge to Ahab and his people to prove that God, not Baal, is the true God, Ahab accepts the challenge. What happens as the two try to prove who is right?
“If the Lord is the one and only God, follow him.” – 1 Kings 18:21 NIrV
Even though as believers we are told do not test the Lord your God, it seems you can read of stories when God presented his power. One such time where God’s power was shown blatantly was with King Ahab and Elijah. Follow along Crystal Bowman‘s words and Valerie Sokolova‘s pictures to share a great story of mass conversion as God is shown to the people in a contest between the deity Baal and Jehovah himself.
