Bible verses about Mount Carmel
(From Forerunner Commentary)

1 Kings 18:22-24  (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

What Elijah set up on Mount Carmel is a sign to show who is the true God. Only the true God would be able to bring fire down from heaven and burn up this sacrifice, which had been placed on water-soaked wood. This passage describes a contest between the God of Israel and Baal to determine which is the true God.

1 Kings 18:32-35  (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

This occurs in the midst of a 3½ year drought. Elijah wastes, as it were, all this water—to soak the sacrifice and the wood and to fill the trench. What is he doing? First, he is making sure that everyone understands that, when this sacrifice gets burned up, it will not be any man's doing. No man can cause a sacrifice with this much water on it to burn—a sacrifice that is essentially drowning in water. Only God could do such a thing.

Second, he is showing how much God can supply. If Elijah is willing to "waste" that much water, then he must be certain that God will supply the people with the water to break the drought. Water was pretty precious stuff at this point! All the brooks had dried up. The countryside was brown with dead vegetation. Even on Mt. Carmel, the greenest part of Israel, it was dry and dusty. Yet, Elijah poured out vast quantities of water on the sacrifice. What faith!
