Elijah, king Ahab and Queen Jezebel.

King Ahab worshipped ‘The Masters’ and he, along with Queen Jezebel, made everyone stop worshipping the Lord God.

Eventually there was a big showdown between Elijah and 450 of ‘The Masters’ prophets.

Elijah called and the Lord God responded – the offering was burnt up!
