Discussion for 2 Kings 8

  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    Day 99 of Bible in a Year Reading. More history, more sorrow and wicked leadership. God uses his prophets to warn and wonder those around him. Great time reading.
  • Anne
    The Shunamite woman is still being blessed - a prophet's reward for what she did for the prophet in 2 Kings Chapter 4. God's word is truth.
  • Leah Michelle
    The first 6 verses here are a must read for a woman looking for hope. This is the same woman from 2nd Kings chapter 4, God done so much for her then and he still continues to never forsake here.
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR IS ALL KNOWING. HE GIVES THIS GIFTS TO ALL MEN, SOME GIFTS ARE MORE PREVALENT. IN THIS CASE THE MAN OF GOD, KNEW OF THE FATE OF ANOTHER. ALSO, GOD ALL KNOWING NEW HOW THERE WOULD BE EVIL KINGS AFTER THE BLOOD LINE OF AHAB. HE, (GOD), ALL KNOWING, KNOWS OUR SHORTCOMINGS, HE KNOWS OUR STRENGTHS, HE KNOWS, OUR SECRET FAULTS. SO TODAY, AFTER READING THIS PASSAGE, IS SO ENCOURGING TO KNOW, THAT WE HAVE A VERY MERCIFUL GOD.
