1 Kings 18:33
“He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”
-Elijah had a contest with the 450 prophets of Baal to prove the power of God against Baal their god. These prophets made a sacrifice & prayed to Baal, danced around the altar, mutilated their bodies with knives until blood flowed from their bodies & finally gave up. When it was Elijah’s turn, he placed the sacrifice on an altar with 12 stones & poured 12 jars of water on it which represented the 12 tribes of Israel. He then prayed to God & a fire came down from heaven burning the sacrifice, wood, soil & stones which were beneath it. After that Ahab & the people then believed that the Lord is the only true God & they destroyed these prophets at the Kishon valley. In the same way, Jesus demonstrated His love for us by offering Himself as a pleasing sacrifice for the remission of our sins that we may gain victory with Him. He celebrated the last supper with the 12 disciples where He gave us His body & blood that we may partake of Him & receive eternal life (John 6:54).
You are our Lord God Almighty, there is no other God but You. All power, victory & strength belongs to You our Lord & King. Guide & direct us as we partake of Your body & blood that we may remain in You as You are in us until we access eternal victory with You. All glory & praise belongs to You forever. Amen
