Note: This is a thought provoking outline. Something that will help you in putting together a message. To see the full message I used go to Passing on the Anointing - Manuscript.

Introduction

Talk about the miracles of Elijah

Second Talk about Elisha’s desire to follow Elijah

The Double portion. Elijah worked 14 miracles and Elisha worked 28 miracles.

Talk about the miracles of Elijah

Talk about the miracles of Elisha

Read the scripture that talks about after Elisha’s death

2 Kings 13:20-21 Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. (21) So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.

Why did Elisha die with the anointing?

We need people who will share the anointing/testimony with this generation.

The young generation don’t know what you have been through (what you were like before you got saved/how you got saved/ the difference Jesus makes unless you tell them)

Conclusion

How to pass on the heritage/anointing/testimony

Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5 "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 "You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 "You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

1. Build relationships

2. Be an example

3. Know the truth to pass on.

4. Share your testimony: where you came from, how the Lord changed you, where you are now

Psalms 127:1-5 Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. (2) It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep. (3) Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (4) Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. (5) Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
