Consuming Fire... based on 1 Kings 18: 24, 38
Verse 24 says, "Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord; and the God who answers by fire, He is God..."
Verse 38 says, "Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water..."
The idea for this cut has been on my mind for a long time. It is such a powerful story and it makes my heart swell with joy and rejoice over the Lord's faithfulness. He did not just consume the sacrifice, but went the extent of consuming everything near to the sacrifice as well. It just amazes me, His grandness, His power, His faithfulness... Wow!
To read more about this particular story, go to 1 Kings 18... Fascinating.
