On his way from Sinai to Damascus he found Elisha at his native "place engaged in the labours of the field, ploughing with twelve" "yoke of oxen. He went over to him, threw over his shoulders his" "rough mantle, and at once adopted him as a son, and invested him" "with the prophetical office comp. Luke , Elisha" accepted the call thus given about four years before the death "of Ahab , and for some seven or eight years became the close" attendant on Elijah till he was parted from him and taken up into heaven.

During all these years we hear nothing of Elisha except in connection with the closing scenes of Elijah's life. He possessed," "according to his own request, "a double portion" of Elijah's" spirit 2 Kings ; and for the long period of about sixty "years B. We next find him at Bethel , where, with the" "sternness of his master, he cursed the youths who came out and" "scoffed at him as a prophet of God: "Go up, thou bald head.

We next read of his predicting a fall of rain when the army of Jehoram was faint from thirst 2 Kings ; of the multiplying of the poor widow's cruse of oil ; the miracle of restoring to life the son of the woman of Shunem ; the multiplication of the twenty loaves of new barley into a sufficient supply for an hundred men ; of the cure of Naaman the Syrian of his leprosy ; of the punishment of Gehazi for his falsehood and his covetousness; of the recovery of the axe lost in the waters of the Jordan " ; of the miracle at Dothan, half-way on the road between" Samaria and Jezreel; of the siege of Samaria by the king of "Syria, and of the terrible sufferings of the people in" "connection with it, and Elisha's prophecy as to the relief that" would come 2 Kings Joash, the grandson of Jehu," "comes to mourn over his approaching departure, and utters the" "same words as those of Elisha when Elijah was taken away: "My" "father, my father!

It has been supposed that Elishah's "descendants peopled the Peloponnesus, which was known by the" "name of Elis. There is no looking back here! How about you?

Elisha, the Prophet.

Have you been looking back or are you pressing on to the higher calling of our Lord? Not with Elijah of course, but with our master, the Lord Jesus. We arise, count the cost, leave the past behind, and follow Him! The next passage I will draw your attention to is 2 King We saw earlier that Elisha had forsaken all to follow Elijah and minister to him. He was willing to submit himself to the will of Elijah and follow him wherever he went. Now, there are three things that stand out ion this passage before us. The third point, that of the significance of the locations mentioned will have to wait till the next study.

But for now, I want to concentrate on points 1 and 2.

Three times in the passage above Elijah tells Elisha to stop and stay where he is! Well, I certainly thought it was. That is exactly what he is doing. And I believe that it applies to us as well. Let me ask you… How far do you want to go with the Lord? Have you been tested whether you will press on to the higher calling of our Lord?.. Because you will be tested.

Even when the Lord was on earth He tested people to see if they truly desired to be with Him. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. In addition, some of our women amazed us.

They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see.

Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory? As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther.

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

King James Version (KJV)

Now, I realise that was quite a long passage but it is pretty awesome! I for one would definitely have liked to have been at that Bible study! And sometimes He will do this with you. Like Elijah testing Elisha, the Lord also longs to see whether we will press on further, following hard after Him [5] , with the desire to know Him better. Had these disciples not truly had a desire for more time in the presence of this man on the road to Emmaus they would have missed out on Christ revealing himself to them further at their home.

And so the two walked on! Just as far as Elijah wanted to take him! I hope you are 1 from 1. A2: Elijah came first and then he trained Elisha.

Bible Study - The Call of Elisha

A5: Elisha did the most miracles — 16 to 8 apparently. A7: Ok, let me guess… You are so far 6 from 6 and you have answered Elijah for the last question to win the car? Both Elisha and Elijah are mentioned in the New Testament.

This Prophet Built on the Miracles of Elijah

Kind of a trick question to prevent pride creeping in! Most followed Baal. Elijah had to come to again show them the true God. Not so much to point out who the true God was, but to show that God was alive and well and was able to save. That is why Elisha performed more miracles than anyone else in the Bible apart from Jesus. He showed that God is salvation. But if you follow those lines right to heaven you will see that they do meet. Until then, we should believe both lines of thought as both are presented to us in the Bible. We know from the Old Testament that the priests would minister unto the Lord.

Exodus , Psalms Now the sacrifices that we give in this New Testament covenant of grace are through our praise, thanksgiving and the offering of ourselves to the Lord. But is there another way that the Bible says we can minister unto Him? Can you think of any? Come on, think. Alrighty… I see you struggling.
