The strange god disappointed the people and was useless because he could answer them. Since the prophets of Baal could not prove their god to the people, this man began to mock them. He said that maybe their god went on a journey, or was busy. Perhaps he was sleeping would soon wake up. Wow! This man of God showed them his confidence in the God serves. He wanted his people to know that there is only one God who can deliver his beloved ones on earth serve strange gods that cannot deliver them during their difficult time.
