After more than three years of drought and famine, God tells Elijah to return to Ahab and announce the end of the drought: not occasioned by repentance in Israel but by the command of the Lord, who had determined to reveal himself again to his people.
While on his way, Elijah meets Obadiah, the head of Ahab's household, who had hidden a hundred Jewish prophets when Ahab and Jezebel had been killing them.
Elijah sends Obadiah back to Ahab to announce his return to Israel.
Elijah not only challenges Baal on behalf of God himself, he challenges Jezebel, her priests, Ahab and the people of Israel.When the brook dries up, God sends him to a widow living in the town of Zarephath in Phoenicia.When Elijah finds her and asks to be fed, she says that she does not have sufficient food to keep her and her own son alive.God gave her "manna" from heaven even while he was withholding food from his unfaithful people in the promised land.Some time later the widow's son dies and the widow cries, "You have come to me to bring my sin to remembrance, and to cause the death of my son!
