    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

    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?
