What would the prophet Elijah do?

I was reading in the Old Testament in the first book of Kings in the 18th chapter were the Prophet Elijah had to deal with the evil in the land . The people were not serving The Lord God and it appears that they have be persuaded to serve other
gods besides the one true God. So the Prophet tells them to get their offering and offer it to Baal and do what they needed and the God that answered by fire this would be the God that we as a nation or as a collective people would serve.  Look at this picture there were 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the groves all who sat at Jezebels table. They called and cried and nothing, the Prophet Elijah even mocked them telling them to call louder for their god may be sleeping or on a journey. Then it was time for the evening sacrifice and the prophet prepared the offering according to the twelve tribes of Israel and had them to pour water all on his sacrifice. Then the prophet prayed but he knew that the Sovereign God he served was the True and Living God and was going to answer by fire, and so God answered by fire consumed the sacrifice and licked up all the water. At this point in the story I am amazed but then the prophet confronts the false prophets that served under King Ahab and Jezebel and said don’t let not one of them get away for he by himself killed all those prophets that deceived the people. Remember God will not allow sin especially when it comes to His people to remain. I believe we need to take a lesson from the prophet Elijah, not be afraid of sin and not tolerate it in our lives or in the church of the Living God. Where are the true Prophets of God with the fire of God looking to get rid of sin.

Is there sin in your life? your church? In your city? Or nation?
I ask where are the true prophets for The Lord God is waiting for vessels that He can use to help bring righteousness to the earth.
