Elijah Resources

Free online resources based on the Biblical story of Elijah. Elijah’s story can be found in the Bible in the book of 1 & 2 Kings. See below for links to sermons, songs, stories and entertaining sites for this wonderful prophet.

Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months. [I Kings 17:1.]

And [then] he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops [as usual]. [I Kings 18:42-45.] — James 5:17-18 <AMP>


Elijah Summary

From a showdown on Mount Carmel with 850 pagan prophets, to bringing a child back from the dead, Elijah is regarded as one of Israel’s greatest prophets. He is one of only two people in the Bible who never died, instead he was miraculously carried into heaven by a chariot of fire. Elijah was also present with Moses at Jesus’ transfiguration. He spoke God’s Word and the rain stopped for three years, only returning after Elijah’s prayer.

God sent Elijah to Israel because their sin had cut off God’s Blessing from their lives. Elijah boldly told the people to choose between God or idols. It seems like an easy choice to make: a living, loving God who has promised to provide everything, or a lifeless, worthless stone idol. But the idols allowed the people to be god’s over their own lives and fulfill all their sinful desires.

Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land.’” 1 Kings 17:13-14 <NIV>

    me. Anyhow, I’m certainly delighted I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it
    and checking back often!
