1 Kings 18:39 – The Lord – He is God! The Lord – He is God! (NIV 1978)
My Musings – The context of this verse is the confrontation between Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel. Having seen the utter failure of a non-existent god, and the awesome display of God’s mighty power, the people could do nothing but exclaim “The Lord – He is God!“
Today, people worship all kinds of “gods,” fame, fortune, pleasure, and science, for example, not to mention a plethora of false religions all claiming that they are the true or an alternative path to God. Then there are those who claim that there is no God at all.
That’s today. A time is coming, perhaps very soon, when this will change and “at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10–11, NIV 1984).
My Advice – For those who have confessed Jesus Christ is Lord beforehand, this will be praise indeed. For those who have not, it will be too late. Why not now? “The Lord – He is God!”
