Bible Lesson 25 Elijah Boldly Confronts Evil

Memory Verse: Psalm 140:4 Protect me, Lord, from the power of the wicked. Keep me safe from violent men who plan to make me stumble. 

  1. Ahab made the disobedient choice to marry Jezebel. In doing so, Ahab brought the worship of Baal and Asherah into Israel. Jezebel wanted to make Ball Israel’s national god.
  2. Baal is defined as a Canaanite god who was mistakenly thought to control the weather.
  3. Elijah pronounced a judgment of drought upon Israel as a punishment for their idolatry. He wanted to cause Israel to examine themselves. When Elijah proclaimed there would be no rain and then he predicted the time the rain would return, God proved that He alone ruled the weather.
  4. Judgment is the righteous consequences of people’s actions.
  5. God protected Elijah after pronouncing judgment on Israel by telling him where to hide. God provided for Elijah during this time. When the brook dried up, God led Elijah to a widow’s home for provision.
  6. Elijah’s faithful relationship with God gave him the courage to boldly confront sin.
  7. Obadiah hid 100 prophets in two caves to protect them from Ahab and Jezebel.
  8. Elijah challenged 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah on Mount Carmel.
  9. The prophets of Baal received no response to their pleas, but God set His altar on fire and burned everything.
  10. The Israelites responded by stating that the Lord is God.
  11. Elijah was a man of great faith who boldly confronted the wickedness of Ahab and Jezebel. Yet in spite of his faith and boldness, his human frailty was seen when he ran in fear from the wicked Jezebel.
  12. God patiently waited for Elijah to recover. He gave Elijah food and time to rest and let him voice his frustrations. Then God gently restored him.
  13. God does not always speak in dramatic ways. He often speaks with a still, small voice. Believers must have a relationship with God and listen carefully to hear His voice.
  14. Ahab and Jezebel died just as Elijah had prophesied. God dishonored both of them by having dogs lick Ahab’s blood and eat Jezebel’s body.
  15. The object of a person’s faith is extremely important, because if the object is false, his or her faith is useless. Only faith in the true and living God can save someone.
  16. False religions teach that salvation comes through good works, good people, other gods, or a set of standards.
  17. At any time, a person can change his or her sinful ways and turn to a faith in Jesus Christ. God is merciful to forgive. People do not have to follow the sins of their relatives.
