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.
