  • How Far Do You Want To Go? Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on May 15, 2021
    based on 5 ratings

    Why did Elisha insist (3 times) to go with Elijah to his fiery chariot ride... but all of the "sons of the Prophets" insisted on standing some distance away?

    (I opened the sermon by leading the congregation in an old hymn called "If Jesus Goes With Me I'll Go Anywhere". And then ended the sermon by singing the first verse and chorus with them again). In 1936, a 17 year old Bob Feller became a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians, and he ...read more

  • The Succession Of Elisha.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 2 ratings
     | 676 views

    With the dramatic departure of Elijah, his servant Elisha calmly took up the mantle. The Holy Spirit ensures continuity in ministry.

    THE SUCCESSION OF ELISHA. 2 Kings 2:1-2; 2 Kings 2:6-14. 1. The main theme of 2 Kings 2:1-14 is not so much the whirlwind, which is only cursorily mentioned (2 Kings 2:1), but rather the matter of succession. Nicely poised between the end of the reign of one king (2 Kings 1:17-18), and the ...read more

  • Teaching Others How To Serve

     | 1,001 views

    Let’s not be the hindrance to someone not advancing in what God has called them to do. Let’s be encouragers and take the time to mentor others so that they can be the leaders of tomorrow.

    We have been involved in the prophet Elijah's life for some time now. We've been talking about living outside our comfort zone by serving God in different ways. We have discussed serving God with courage, serving God with trust, serving God through our prayers, serving God with our ...read more

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Jan 5, 2022
     | 683 views

    In the previous sermon we talked about Elijah, who was Elisha’s predecessor.

    We learned that Elisha followed Elijah everywhere he went. Elisha followed Elijah from Gilgal to Beth-el, to Jericho, to Jordan. Elijah asked Elisha to “Tarry here...” three times, but every time Elisha would say, “...As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee...” Elijah, ...read more

    There is profound meaning in Elijah being taken up to heaven in a fiery chariot.

    The Ascension of Elijah: An Exposition of 2 Kings 2:1-12 It has been said: “No one leaves this world alive.” Everyone knows what this means. Everyone is going to die. But what does one do with this knowledge? Some would turn the saying into “You only live once; so go for all the gusto you can.” ...read more

  • Where Is The Lord God Of Elijah (1 Of 2)

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Apr 4, 2022
     | 579 views

    As I read through this passage, it appears that Elijah is testing Elisha.

    Look at verse 2. He said to Elisha, “...Tarry here, I pray thee; for the Lord hath sent me to Beth-el...” But notice Elisha’s response in that same verse, “...As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee...” Then look at verse 4. Elijah seems to test Elisha again. He ...read more

    Elijah taken up in a whirlwind - not a chariot of fire as commonly taught

    2 Kings 2. 1-14 I am sure we all know a few lines of “Swing low sweet chariot, coming for to take me home…” An African-American spiritual. The date of composition is unknown. Taken now by English rugby fans, though the wheels of that chariot keep coming off, but that is for another day. The ...read more

  • The Double-Anointing

     | 11,198 views

    How did Elisha receive the double portion? He asked for it. He was totally focused, committed and sold out to it. And, he received it! How bad do you want it? Where are you in your spiritual journey today? Are you hard after God?

    Opening illustration: In 1937, missionaries were forced to leave southern Ethiopia because of World War II. They had reached the remote area of Wolayto only in 1928. Nine years later, there were only 48 converts, and they experienced brutal persecution because of their faith. Tears flowed on both ...read more

  • Taken Away

     | 2,841 views

    God will remove certain individuals from earth just as they are alive and well and He will take them up or to Heaven for some undisclosed purpose. These abductees are still human but not eternal and God will use them at a later date.

    Taken Away 2 Kings 2:5-17 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 The title of today’s message may be one that some of you have a hard time putting into context. By taken away I do not mean that my wife has called Tom Millard’s co-workers to come and pick me up and take me away to that ...read more
