    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.

    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?
  • Mary
    To those negative about God where do you find more than 42 children hanging around picking on people passing thru but in a gang. Note there were more than 42 children, and note that two bears harmed 42 of them, why didn't more of them run? Most likely it was a gang of children who thought they could stand up to the bears and ended up harmed. God is great and you can believe there is more to the story of the prophet that was being verbally abused by a gang of young people only God knows what would have happened to him if the bears didn't come to distract them.
