2/23/2014 .. Sermon ' Show time' I Kings 18

Elijah - King Ahab - Mt. Carmel … My pastor preached this on 2/23/14 in the morning service from I Kings 18 … sharing my notes

Angela Watkins's insight:
I Kings 18:36-39 … It’s Show Time


Every now & then the Church have to take on the Spirit of Elijah.


King Ahab had a wife named Jezebel.


God is going to do HIS own thing in HIS own time.


Sometimes we end up in a place called ‘there.’ Sometimes God will place you in circumstances where you have to trust HIM.


Sometimes we have to be still.


After Elijah & the widow woman squared things up. God says its not going to rain - it’s not going to rain.


Mt. Carmel

The Lord is getting ready to have a ‘Show Down.; Be ready to do what HE has assigned us to do. We need to know that God will make sense out of non-sense to us. God will tell you to use what HE show you to use.


King Ahab was a hard headed against Israel.


Sometimes we lose things because we are hard headed.


If God is God serve HIM, if baal is baal serve him. You can’t have it both ways.


I Kings 18:23,24: Show Down at Mt. Carmel


Get on the Lord’s side - Victory was won on Calvary Hill.


Even if you haven’t accepted God - HE still loves you, but hate your sin.


I Kings 18:32-35


Israel was in the middle of a drought - the Church is in the middle of the drought.


Elijah prayed to the Lord - in his prayer he knew what the Lord was getting ready to do.


We got to line up with what God’s Word says.


God shows up right on time.


A show down right here between good & evil. ………….
