The Mt. Carmel Discourse
Isreal Tour Diaries: of Joel Lawati
Rom 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
Rom 11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
Rom 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
Rom 11:4 But what saith the ANSWER of God unto him? I have RESERVED to MYSELF SEVEN THOUSAND MEN, who have not BOWED the KNEE to the IMAGE OF BAAL.
Rom 11:5 EVEN SO then at this PRESENT TIME also there is a REMNANT according to the ELECTION of GRACE.

Mount Carmel. This is where Elijah met the prophets of Baal and challenged them (1 Kings 18:16-40). Child sacrifices were common rituals of the Canaanite Baal worshipers in Palestine during 9th Century BC. Near here archeologists had discovered the remains of infants who under the corrupt rule of the Israelite king Ahab and queen Jezebel had been sacrificing children in the temple of Ashtoreth, the goddess of Baal.
