came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that
thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy
word. (37) Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the
LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. (38) Then the fire of the
LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and
licked up the water that was in the trench.

Coupled with a prayerful life and walk, when you ask God, to Move Like
That. He Will.

them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering
to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
d. We’ve fought some giants and the rain is coming
e. If You don’t know God, and you want to experience the wonderful gift
of the Holy Ghost and Salvation. The Peace and Joy that it can only give,
then all you have to do, is do as Peter said in
Acts 2:38
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
f. What is Repentance you ask:
i. Define Repentance, Repentace is the Godly Sorrow,

2 Corinthians 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the
world worketh death.
i. Seeing your sins as God sees them and wanting to change, from the life
that you have been living. Forsaking that sin, is repentance, But you can’t
do it on your own, you need the help that is what the Holy Ghost is for.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of
truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
g. The Holy Ghost is there to comfort you and to help you, and then you
need to be baptized in Jesus name the only sin remitting name, under
heaven that has the power.
Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among
men, whereby we must be saved.
h. After you have repented, and received the Holy Ghost, been baptized
in His precious name, then your name has been written down in the lambs
book of life.
Revelation 3:5
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his
