Elijah’s Challenge

Elijah and the prophets of Baal -

The prophets of Baal have gathered for a showdown ,with Elijah calling to the people  to decide which god they will follow.  The prophets of Baal cried aloud and cut themselves to get their god’s attention…but there was no answer . (I wonder why!) Now Elijah prays to the only Living God “…Hear me, O Lord, that this people may know that YOU are  the LORD God… Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.  Now when the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, ‘The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!'”  (You will want to make a little “jacob’s ladder” under the people to portray and little fear and trembling…for a demonstration  for this technique go to “You-Tube” and check out “how to make a jacob’s ladder” uploaded by rostichery.)

You will need tissue paper and glue for the flames.
