The place is Mt. Carmel in northern Israel. The date was 906 B.C. There was a showdown happening. The prophets of Baal (400 of them) were pitted against Elijah. The question was, “who’s God (god) is stronger. You probably know the rest of the account. An alter was built; water was poured on it and the God of the universe sent FIRE; killed all the false prophets, burnt up the sacrifice and even burnt up alter. Today when you go there, you can see a place where something has almost melted the surface the rock. I encourage you to go and look for yourself.
