1 Now there cryed a certaine woman of the wiues of the sonnes of the Prophets vnto Elisha, saying, Thy seruant my husband is dead, and thou knowest that thy seruant did feare the Lord: and the creditour is come to take vnto him my two sonnes to be bondmen.
8 ¶ And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and shee constrained him to eate bread: And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, hee turned in thither to eate bread.
10 Let vs make a litle chamber, I pray thee, on the wall, and let vs set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stoole, and a candlesticke: and it shall be when he commeth to vs, that hee shall turne in thither.
13 And he said vnto him, Say, now vnto her, Behold, thou hast beene carefull for vs with all this care; What is to be done for thee? Wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captaine of the hoste? And she answered, I dwell among mine owne people.
27 And when shee came to the man of God to the hill, shee caught him by the feet: but Gehazi came neere to thrust her away. And the man of God saide, Let her alone, for her soule is vexed within her: and the Lord hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.
29 Then he said to Gehazi, Gird vp thy loines, and take my staffe in thine hand, and goe thy way: if thou meete any man, salute him not: and if any salute thee, answere him not againe: and lay my staffe vpon the face of the childe.
31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staffe vpon the face of the child, but there was neither voyce, nor hearing: wherefore he went againe to meete him, and tolde him, saying, The child is not awaked.
34 And he went vp, and lay vpon the child, and put his mouth vpon his mouth, and his eyes vpon his eyes, and his hands vpon his hands, and he stretched himselfe vpon the child, and the flesh of the child waxed warme.
38 ¶ And Elisha came againe to Gilgal, and there was a dearth in the land, and the sonnes of the Prophets were sitting before him: and hee said vnto his seruant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sonnes of the Prophets.
40 So they powred out for the men to eat: and it came to passe as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they could not eate thereof.
42 ¶ And there came a man from Baal-Shalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the first fruits, twentie loaues of barley, and full eares of corne in the huske thereof: and he said, Giue vnto the people, that they may eate.

The almighty God reveals wisdom and knowledge to those who love him. It is all or nothing for Christ Jesus. To live the life of Christ is to embrace the lifestyle of the gospel and not of this world. Only then can we witness the Lord's grace.

This portion of the Bible is loaded, and it brings encouragement to the body of Christ.

Little is much when God is in it. That applies in every level of circumstances we come across, not only food but also other means of life too.

This book is currently helping me through a situation. My job is due to end on March 27, 2013. During a brief moment of anxiety I asked the Lord to give me a word to comfort me. He led me directly to this book and in particular the story about the oil, and how after selling what she was blessed with that, there was enough remaining for her and her children to live off with. No coincidence. I asked fit comfort and He basically, he allowed the Bible to fall on that particular story. Again, no coincidence.

Whose report shall we believe? The report of the Lord. We should run to our source of hope, the only one who can really help,.. God. His ears are open to our cries... This man of God knows his God, he was strong and did exploits. I pray that God will raise people for this generation that will continue in this path.. "these signs shall follow them that believe in my name, they will lay hands on the sick and the sick will recover......”

When the Shunammite woman noticed that Elisha was an Holy man of God without being told, she teaches us that as we have Christ in our lives, people must see it before we even mention it.

I SEE THE IN THIS CHAPTER HOW ELISHA IS PERFORMING SOME OF THE SAME MIRACLES THAT OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR ALSO PERFORMED. HE (ELISHA) PERFORMED THESE MIRACLES OUT OF LOVE FOR OTHERS. THE EXAMPLE THAT WE AS PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE IS TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED AS IF NEED OURSELVES. WE MAY NOT CAN CHANGE WATER INTO WINE, BUT WE CAN LEND A HAND.
RALPH M. WATERS's 2 Kings Chapter 4 comment on 4/04/2012, 2:30pm...
IN THIS CHAPTER, THE PEOPLE GET TO SEE SOME OF THE MIRICLES WHICH WERE LATER DEMONSTRATED BY OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THESE MIRACLES WERE OUT OF LOVE, BUT FOR OUR CURRENT EDUCATION AS TO THE LIMITLESS POWER OF GOD.
