  • AG Samuel
    It appears that the Lord God has all the time given us our double portion in the anointing of Him even without our cognizance. We see Elisha going about his earthly fathers' business of working the oxen_ tilling the earth and yet his double portion Spirit filled God's work was ready for him.And how reluctant Elisha was in agreeing to follow after Elisha on his call! We ought to learn from it .
  • LOSE
    I love the Prophetic Protocol of Elisha, he knew that Elija is carrying something great that is y he followed him from Bethel to Jericho Until they crossed Jordan. That was the power of recognising Anointy in the servants of GOD, I PRAY THAT GOD MAY GIVE MY GENERATION THAT SAME SPIRIT OF TAKING FROM THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM

    he was only operating in the spirit, putting faith into practice, believing God through the power of God that is made manifest in the life of Elijah. He new that if God could use Elijah, God can use him too. And he stood by him until he got the double portion.

  • Emmanuel Benjamin
    Yes! Elisha had double portion of the blessings of Prophet Elijah,but Elisha lacked something in him which was the kingdom of heaven,he only demanded for the mantle, but did not want to go the way his master left to heaven through a whirlwind. And his master gave him the opportunity to ask of anything but he only asked for the mantle,then what about the kingdom Heaven?
