    Elijah, then Elisha

    Elijah -- Elisha - (1Kings17 to 2Kings13)

    Elijah and then Elisha were two prophets chosen by God,
    They followed one after the other, but not like two peas in a pod.
    The differences between them were substantial; they weren't alike at all,
    Except in their duty to God, and in the way they obeyed his call.

    ELIJAH would call down fire! — Be careful what you say or do,
    ‘Cause he would prove that God is real, and make it hot for you.
    ELIJAH takes it on himself to see that things get done,
    He does it in the Name of God — they didn't yet know of the Son.

    But he's always very hungry and gets fed miraculously,
    by the ravens and the widow, and the angels by the Juniper tree.
    The Word of God hadn't yet been born when ELIJAH walked the earth,
    and his hunger would not be abated until the spiritual bread came forth.
    So when his job was over and his replacment was on board,
    He threw his mantle to Elisha and into the heavens he soared.

    ‘If you see me taken up', ELIJAH told Elisha,
    then the double-portion, that you've asked, is granted...
    Sure enough he got his wish, ‘cause he saw ELIJAH go,
    and he received the thing for which his heart had panted.

    Now ELISHA was completely different — he didn't use fire at all,
    It was WATER that he specialized in, and he had a servant at his beck and call.
    He had no trouble with food; he healed it and caused it to grow,
    His double-portion of the Holy Spirit cured all manner of woe.
    The power of the Spirit in ELISHA went deep into his bones,
    When a dead man accidentally touched them, he raised right up and ran home!

    Elijah was like John the Baptist, whose ministry introduced Christ,
    and Elisha was a type of Jesus, who brings us the Living Water of Life.
    Together they're yoked to the chariot of God: they're two birds of a feather..

    It's the Old Testament and the New Testament, spiritually harnessed together.
    There's more to this story than can be told in verse, and more than meets the eye,
    If you ever expect to contend with the horses, don't look for pie in the sky.
    The Chariot of Fire that came for Elijah, is the spiritual vessel of GOD,
    To bring us the secrets of Scripture, and show how our feet should be shod.

    Hi dux,

    Your insights are always a blessing. Thanks for sharing another thought-provoking item.



    To Timmy,

    Here is another verse in support of my answer to your Q, 'Where do you come up with the notion that anything can be changed that has already occurred?'

    Psalm 33:10
    10 The Lord brings the counsel of the heathen to nought: he makes the devices of the people of none effect.


    Thayers has quite a lot to say about 'devices', which is Strong's H4284. It appears many times in scripture under various English words.

    As you might guess, I was checking up whether anyone had said 'the word of God' can 'be made of none effect', and found twice: Jesus said it can. He was referring once to logos and once to entole (G1785). This comment links to our discussion here.
    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    Ephesians 3

    Thanks, Charisma, Glad you liked it..
    The way Samson killed more by pulling the pillars, than he did with the jawbone...
    I compare to how the bones of Elisha revived the dead man -- and to how the crucifixion and gospel has brought new life everywhere it reaches.
    Naturally there's friction, especially because I believe we're in a famine like Amos 8:11.

    Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
