From Kings to the KING

"As The LORD, The God Of Israel, Lives" (Part 2)

March 11, 2018. Today, Pastor Joe continues his two-part message based on 1 Kings, chapter 17.
When the widow's son suddenly dies, the widow tells Elijah that he has caused God to remember her sins and punish her.
We too tend to blame ourselves for bad events in our lives, or we may blame God. While it can be good to search our souls, we must recognize that if God judged us as we deserve, we would all perish. Therefore we trust in God's love and His provision for us, for He "...so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
But there is even more in this section of 1 Kings than a story of a widow and her son and a prophet of God. What is revealed here is a cosmic battle between Yahweh, Israel's God, and the false god Baal, whom the Sidonians and Phoenicians worshiped. And the story's outcome is proof that Yahweh, the Most High God, is the ONLY source and sustainer of all life.
