Elijah Proves Who The True God Is
For three years there was no rain.
The people were hungry. What could they do?
The king said to Elijah, 'Why do you
Cause so much trouble?'
'You are the one causing troubles,' said Elijah.
'You disobey the one true God.
You worship idols.
That is the trouble.'
The false prophets begged their gods to send fire.
But no fire came to burn their sacrifice.
Elijah poured water on the wood for his sacrifice.
When the wood was very wet he called upon God
To send fire.
Tremendous fire came from the sky.
It burned the wood and the water around it.
'Worship God,' said Elijah, 'and all will be well.'
