Children, last week, we saw that a very powerful prophet, Elijah appeared in the land of Israel. God sent him to speak His words so as to save and heal the people whom God loved, and punish those who did not believe Him. Therefore, due to the words spoken by Elijah, there was famine throughout the whole land and there was no rain. Many people died of hunger. Elijah together with a widow from Zarephath enjoyed the Lord\u2019s blessings.
King Ahab continually sent his people to look for Elijah but could not locate him. After these days passed for 3 years, God instructed Elijah to present himself to King Ahab and asked him to gather all the Israelites as well as the 850 false prophets of Baal and Asherah on Mount Carmel. When the Israelites were gathered, Elijah said to the false prophets of Baal, \u201cChoose one bull for yourselves, cut it into pieces and lay it on the wood on the altar. Then call on the name of your god to send fire down. If he is the true god, he will surely answer you.\u201d From morning to night, the 850 false prophets called on the name of their god. They even cut themselves with knives but nothing happened. Thereafter, Elijah cut the other bull into pieces and laid it on the wood on the altar. He also poured water on the wood.

When all the people saw it, they fell prostrate and cried, "The Lord \u2013 he is God!\u201d Prophet Elijah then commanded the people to kill all the false prophets of Baal. After that, Elijah said to King Ahab, \u201cIt is going to rain soon!\u201d Indeed, not long after, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain came on and there was no longer famine in Israel. Therefore, Prophet Elijah relied on God\u2019s help to triumph over 850 false prophets. He became the prophet, king and priest who saved the Israelites.
he knew that God had chosen him, God was with him and God wanted to use him to save Israel. Therefore, even with him alone, he could demonstrate God\u2019s great power. [Children, do you all believe the Lord\u2019s promise?]

When Elijah knew God\u2019s perfect and submitted, God fulfilled all the He had said and did. [Do we in all things (studying, playing, eating, attending Sunday school) submit to
