ELIJAH: PROPEHCY THAT ELISHA SHOULD HAVE A DOUBLE PORTION OF HIS SPIRIT

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Double Portion Of Elijah's Spirit

a) Before Elijah was caught up to heaven in the whirlwind, his understudy Elisha requested a double portion of Elijah's spirit

2 Kings 2:9 (NKJV)
9 And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”

b) Elijah being under the inspiration of God then replied that Elisha's request would be granted provided that the younger prophet were with him at the time he was taken away. The scriptures then record that this condition was fulfilled. 

c) After reading of the spectacular career of Elijah, it is difficult to believe that any man could have a double portion of his spirit, yet it came to pass that exactly twice as many miracles were done in the ministry of Elisha as in that of Elijah. 

2. Elijah: Prophecy That Elisha Should Have A Double portion Of His Spirit 

2 Kings 2:10 (NKJV)
10 So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so.”


The End ...
