Fire From Heaven - The Priests of Baal Versus Elijah, a Prophet of God - Animated Bible Adventure

_________________________________________



(This is a semi-animated / illustrated video about the prophet Elijah calling fire down from Heaven. It contains scripture verses, artwork, and hymn music.) -- Fire came down from Heaven and consumed stones, water, and an animal sacrifice when Elijah, a prophet of God, asked God to demonstrate His power to show the backward people of ancient Israel who the real God is. For years they were serving Baal and many other idols. Then, famine and drought struck the land for about 3 years. Near the end of the famine, Elijah, the man who King Ahab had sought to capture, appeared and wished to speak with the king. 

He told King Ahab to get the children of Israel together to conduct an experiment to see who the true God really is: Baal or JEHOVAH. The real God would answer his worshipers with fire from heaven. Elijah let the Baal worshipers go first. Then, the priests of Baal began to conduct pagan rituals to call upon Baal to send fire from heaven. But, nothing happened. This went on for many hours.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 6 - Laying up Treasure in Heaven - (With Footnotes)




MATTHEW CHAPTER 6 

- Laying up Treasure in Heaven - (With Footnotes)


🌎 [Matthew 6:1-8]

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Notes:

  (See Matt. 6:7-8)… We don’t perform for God because God provides all our needs for free. (See Matthew 7:7-11 and Romans 8:32.
Romans 8:32 says: “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”)

  Performing for God is doubt and pride, and it is glorying in the flesh. It is having confidence in the flesh (or oneself). (See Galatians 6:11-14 and Philippians 3:3-10.)

  Philippians 3:3 says: “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.”

Synopsis

Europe has been invaded, the superpower across the sea is no more, and the country of "Baltania" is controlling Europe through communistic puppet governments. Under the oppressive cloud of communism, a small group of underground Christians faces a powerful crime organization bent on their capture and destruction. 

(The entire story is in a complete PDF file
which can be read at this link on Google Drive.
I make no money from this story. It is entirely free.)
Under this heavy, oppressive cloak, Kevin Kramer, a 30-year-old, and Maritza, his attractive, 27-year-old girlfriend, must decide who they will serve as they fall in love with each other, start a romantic relationship, and try to evade the unrelenting and dangerous members of a criminal organization, which seeks to kidnap underground Christians to sell to the secret police.

Together with some friends, Kevin and Maritza must do their best to avoid being captured as they learn to trust God and follow His guiding hand in these last days just before the rise of the Antichrist. This fast-paced story is designed to be fascinating. But, don't just take our word for it... 

[Note: Baltania is a fictional country within the Eurasian landmass. At one time, it had a communistic past. During a third world war, communism revived in this country as its armies conquered Europe. Since we do not want to point fingers at any particular country, we will not name this country or coalition of countries.]

The Crate Room

Wolf, Stingray, and Jackal were standing at the bottom of the staircase, inside the concrete room. Against two of the four walls, crates and boxes were stacked. The fluorescent ceiling lights were still on, proving that someone had been down there not long ago. Where the Christians had vanished to was still a mystery to Wolf. It seemed that the only way out of that room was by the stairwell he had just descended.

~ Previously ~

Jackal, an agent of the crime organization Red Venom, had just arrived at Daniel and Monika Barnabus’s house, which sat in the depths of the Kühnburg forest in the Communist Republic of Germany. Pretending to be an “underground” Christian, Jackal has convinced several Christians to follow him out into the woods to help him bring some camping stuff over to Daniel’s house. Unknown to Kevin, several gangsters had emerged from some dense bushes. The Christians who had followed Jackal were then handcuffed.

Concerned about who this stranger was, Kevin had gone into a second-floor closet to seek God about the visitor.


Hearing from God

“Father God, who is this stranger here at Daniel’s house? I’m puzzled about him. Is he a true Christian or is he seeking to harm us?” Kevin said from within a walk-in closet on the second floor of Daniel’s house. “And, if he is seeking to harm us, what should we do?”

The Surprise

Svenja, Rolf, how did you get here?” Kevin said, surprised, as he stood in Daniel’s spacious living room near a stone fireplace and a cream-colored sofa. Maritza and Daniel were standing nearby. Kevin’s sister and her husband had just entered the living room from a hallway connected to the left corner of the back wall. Along the back wall of the living room, and three meters from the hallway entrance, a set of stairs descending into the basement.

“Kevin,” Rolf said with his deep voice, smiling, “you wouldn’t believe what God has done for us.”

“What is that?” Kevin said as he walked toward the giant and his wife.

5:28 A.M.

A heavy, razor-sharp guillotine blade, sparkling in a bright, overhead light, hung in slotted tracks over Svenja’s head. The time displayed on a large, digital clock, which was fastened to one of the concrete walls of the execution room, was 5:28:03 A.M. On the wall beside it was an electric buzzer. A row of fifteen guillotines sat empty to Svenja’s left.

Going Northeasterly

“Are we going north?” Kevin asked Konrad as they hiked through the Kühnburg forest under the gaze of the moon.

“We are going in a northeasterly direction,” Konrad said as he pushed a low-hanging pine branch out of his face. “That is the direction God is showing me to take.”
