The scene is set – the marketing representative and his assistant go through their final preparation for what could make or break their company. This account is crucial for the injection of cash for the future survival of the company. Beads of sweat can be seen on the face of the assistant as he pounced up and down the conference room.

Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD -he is God! The LORD -he is God!
