5 And Ahab said vnto Obadiah, Goe into the land, vnto all fountaines of water, and vnto all brookes: peraduenture we may finde grasse to saue the horses and mules aliue, that we leese not all the beasts.
10 As the Lord thy God liueth, there is no nation or kingdome, whither my lord hath not sent to seeke thee: and when they said, He is not there, hee tooke an oath of the kingdome and nation, that they found thee not.
12 And it shall come to passe, as soone as I am gone from thee, that the spirit of the Lord shall cary thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot finde thee, he shall slay mee: but I thy seruant feare the Lord from my youth.
23 Let them therefore giue vs two bullocks, and let them chuse one bullocke for themselues, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire vnder: and I will dresse the other bullocke, and lay it on wood, and put no fire vnder.
26 And they took the bullocke which was giuen them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning, euen vntil noone, saying, O Baal, heare vs. But there was no voyce, nor any that answered: And they leapt vpon the altar which was made.
27 And it came to passe at noone, that Eliiah mocked them, and saide, Crie aloud: for he is a god, either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or hee is in a iourney, or peraduenture he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
36 And it came to passe at the time of the offering of the euening sacrifice, that Eliiah the prophet came neere and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, Let it bee knowen this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy seruant, and that I haue done all these things at thy word.
44 And it came to passe at the seuenth time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the Sea, like a mans hand. And he said, Goe vp, say vnto Ahab, Prepare thy charet, and get thee downe, that the raine stop thee not.

By strength shall no man prevail. Man's strength is limiting but with God, all things are possible. A day of favour from God is more than a thousand years of man's labour! I receive grace for uncommon speed in Jesus' name!

v.21 Riding the fence. The Israelites of old did not abandon GOD. They wanted their cake to eat too. They wanted to assimilate the ALMIGHTY with baal who is none other but Lucifer and his world.
GOD is a jealous GOD and he will not have any part time lovers, see Exodous 20:5. "you cannot serve GOD and mammon" you will always end up despising one one "side of the triangle". There is no need to lie to yourself-Psalms 15:2
What will it be? Christ or Barrabas? GOD'S "well done" or the world's pat onthe back?
What will GOD do to such in-the-name-only-christians who want to hold hands with the world? He will vomit you out of his mouth-Revelations 3:15 and then tell you to depart from HIM,that he never knew you-Matthew 25:41
"Come now let us reason together,saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet,they shall be white as snow;though they be red as crimson,they shall be as wool.

There had been a drought in the land. Just as there is a drought in the church today. I believe this is a prophecy to the church concerning the last days and the end time ministry of the church. Rain always represents the Holy Spirit. I believe the prophet saw the fivefold ministry returning to the Church. If you notice the King James Version says a cloud LIKE, not the size of, a man’s hand. I have seen Rain clouds over the Gulf that appeared like the palm of a hand with fingers reaching down to the sea. The prophet saw 5 fingers representing the 5 fold ministry. The sea always represents people; and in this case, God’s people, the church. Something to think about.

Those who depend on the Lord gain more and more strength. If you are to Jesus in life people may go ahead of you, but in his time you will overtake them.

Serving God most of the times will require us to stand alone, swimming against the tide. Elijah went against public opinion (popular opinion), standing alone to face 450 prophets of Baal. It is a great virtue we should all pray for grace to have.
Timothy Wayne George's 1 Kings Chapter 18 comment on 12/06/2012, 9:20am...
The number seven stands for completion. Elijah has just completely destroyed the prophets of Baal, and has told the servant to go look to the sea seven times. On the seventh time, he is to tell Ahab to get on his chariot, “that the rain stop thee not”. The Lord is using Elijah to turn the hearts of the children of Israel away from idolatry, to worship the Lord God of their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Israel.

I need comment from this verse 44.
Mwangala Saboi's 1 Kings Chapter 18 comment on 5/22/2012, 4:58am...
Halelujah. He is JEHOVAH who answers by fire. a true and living GOD. He hears the cry of His Children and sees the pain they go through. Surely He answers by fire!
As worshipers of the Living God, we are not going to struggle in prayer like the worshipers of Baal(dead god) who prayed from morning until sunset and even had to cut themselves with knives, but no answer came.God will hear us and answer us by FIRE when we call on him in a short while like he did in the case of Elijah.
