It was over three years with no water animals started to die, God spoke to elijah and told him " Go find ahab and i will send rain"
Elijah told Ahab to gather everyone to Mt Carmel
"Is that you Elijah, the biggest trouble maker in Israel".
everyone was now gathered at Mt Carmel. Elijah said to the people " How long will you keep changing your mind? If the lord is your God follow him, but if Baal is God follow him". the people stood quiet Elijah then spoke " I am the only prophet of the lord, Baal has over four hundred. Get two bulls cut into piece and place the meat on the wood but do not start the fire! then call out to Baal and ill call out to the lord. The god who listens and starts the fire is the real lord.
