1 Kings 18:41,43-46 NKJV
 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.”
[–> There is a sound of rain…
From where? There is no rain in sight
The prophet heard ‘in the spirit’s]
 So Ahab went up to eat and drink.
And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel;
[—> Elijah went… Away, out of the area,]
then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,
[—> Elijah prayed]
 and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.”
[—> Elijah had no physical manifestation .. yet]
And seven times he said, “Go again.”
[—>. Elijah is seven times without manifestation]
 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!”
[—>. Manifestation begins very small]
So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.'”
 Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel.
 Then the hand of the LORD came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
