Yahweh, Day 70

Day 70, Yahweh … Calling on the Name

1Kings 18:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
"Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Yahweh. The God who answers with fire, He is God." All the people answered, "That [sounds] good."

The prophets of Baal started to call on their god ... to no avail ... and Elijah starts to mock them openly...

"Shout loudly, for he's a god! Maybe he's thinking it over; maybe he has wandered away; or maybe he's on the road. Perhaps he's sleeping and will wake up!"
1Kings 18:27 (HCSB)

Of course ... Baal answers not with either word or deed.

The way that we mock the false gods of our day ... ignore them ... advance the Gospel.

Intercessory Prayer:  Father, You have given to us the greatest treasure known to mankind … the good news of salvation through Your Son!  Send us out!  In Jesus Name.  Amen.
