This remarkable prophecy was miraculously fulfilled. There was no rain in the land of Israel for 3 1/2 years (1 Kings 18:1; compare Luke 4:25 and James 5:17) until Elijah confronted and defeated all the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:17-45). Yet James reminds us that Elijah was a man "subject to like passions as we are," (James 5:17) and that this miracle was simply an answer to his fervent prayer.
