IT IS NOT OVER YET !!!
""And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time. And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer–sheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God"". (1 Kings 19:1-8 KJV).
For the first time in the history of the gospel one man challenged eight hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and balim. Elijah stood and challenged eight hundred and fifty people. He told them to call on their gods, and he will call on the name of the Lord and the God , which answereth by fire, let Him be God. That was how the competition started.
Elijah prayed and called on the God of Abraham , Isaac, and Jacob. ""Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel , let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel , and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word". That was all Elijah said and fire fell, and Elijah killed all those prophets.
Jezebel , the wicked queen , sent a threat to Elijah. She swore by the gods that Elijah's end had come, and the prophet went away but where he was the Lord had prepared a table before him in the presence of his enemy.
I pray that the Lord shall prepare your table in the presence of your enemy in Jesus name Amen !
Brethren it's not over yet !!!
