       * 1Ki 19:9 Pr 3:5 Mt 16:24 Joh 15:14
      Many learned men have raised doubts on those parts of the
      Inspired Word, which may, by the perverseness of their
      argument and the ingenuity of their surmise, be made to appear
      inconsistent with fact.  In this case, they are not satisfied
      with being expressly told by God that the ravens supplied
      Elijah with food, while the brook gave him drink, but
      apparently to mystify a manifest miracle, they suggest whether
      these ravens might not be merchantmen, or the inhabitants of a
      neighboring town.  Let any unprejudiced reader and lover of
      the Bible take the whole history of Elijah, and he will find
      that his life was almost a daily illustration of the power of
      God in his miraculous interpositions.  Instance the supply of
      provision in the unwasting barrel of meal and cruse of oil,
      after the prophet had removed to Zarephath:  the power
      communicated to him to raise the widow's son from death:  the
      wonderful interposition of the Lord to prove the folly of
      Baal's worshippers, in sending down fire from heaven to
      consume Elijah's sacrifice and lick up the water, although the
      sacrifice had been saturated therewith, and the altar
      surrounded by a deep trench to prevent its running away.  The
      prayer for rain is another instance:  the sojourn in Horeb
      forty days and forty nights, after having eaten of the cake:
      the destruction of Ahaziah's messengers twice:  the smiting of
      the waters at Jordan:  the fall of the mantle on Elisha: and
      finally, in the closing scene of life, he was taken to glory
      without tasting the pains of death, the sting was taken away.
