The propeht Elijah stands out among the Old Testament prophets for fearlessly standing up and speaking for Yahweh when his people were worshipping Baal and Asherath. You can think of him as the prophet of the resistance. In this series we will explore how God used Elijah to decisively demonstrate his power over the storm god and fertility goddess. In doing so, we see God's desire for his people to come back to faithful covenant living with him. From this story, we can be assured of God's power over the idols of our day, and we can see God's heart for his people to return in loyalty to him.
