1 Kings 18 | The prophet Elijah and the Northern Kingdom’s King Ahab have history together. Ahab is just trying to live his life and Elijah keeps messing it up. At least that is how Ahab feels about it. At this point, Elijah told Ahab that it would not rain again until Elijah gives word because of the king’s deplorable behavior — specifically bringing in idols and worship practices that undermines Yahweh’s place. Of course, Elijah can only do what Yahweh the God of Israel has told him to do. So, we find him today starting off in hiding and ending the story with Elijah on Ahab’s team, so to speak! And he does it by ordering some pretty dark stuff!
