2 Kings Chapter 2 Discussion

    Get water baptized in Jesus name. It is the only saving name.

    Acts 2:38, " Then Peter said unto them, Repent & be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, & ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost".

    Acts 2:39, " It is the promise to you and to your children and to all that are afar off even as many as the Lord our God shall call".

    Remember that Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven earlier in Matthew 16, therefore Peter is not in error.

    All through the book of Acts, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus, never in titles.

    Matthew 28:19 is fulfilled in Acts 2:38 as it also says "in the name of". Alleluia & amen

    Hello Cynthia.

    If satan succeds in making people make fun of and mock a God's minister and ridicule him so that people place him low in their mind and direspect him then they will not listen to him, he will be preaching (or prophesying) in vain. Elijah realized that trap and reacted accordingly.

    It was a hard punishment but that was in the Old Testament. In the New Testament this is not allowed. But still God iservants must be respectful persons.

    Is the covid19 vacines the Mark of the beast. The DNA swab confirms a cold or flu virus & this it is a money maker costing the poor victim their lives @ a price of $3200. The vaccine containing the DNA of wolves, monkey parts & embryo, is not this forbidden blood & flesh or do we honor Jesus words in My 23 to obey authority? What is the Mark of the beast. Is it the all knowing tree of good & evil our service men have been subjected to (AI or Artificial Intelligence), Remote viewing & out of body experiences that will soon cause us to want to commit suicide yet not be able to die? These DNA changed using canavorus to eliminate the elderly populous & make big pharma richer? Is this not the Mark of the Beast, or I'd it the sin within us that will bring the beast to desire devouring our flesh? When the Harvest of Ingathering

    comes, will this not be God's Wrath?

    This whole chapter is a message: Elijah has been replaced by Elisha. Elisha's ministry is to bring salvation and then judgement. Just as Elijah's ministry foretells John the Baptist's ministry, his successor, Elisha, foreshadows John the Baptist's successor, Jesus.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    But Elisha does bring the promised judgement. Bethel is infamous for being the city where people rejected God and worshipped idols of golden calves in his place. Yet they seem to have escaped God's wrath. These children aren't just playfully insulting a stranger either. They say go up to refer to Elijah, they say bald head to refer to lepers. They are basically saying they reject God and his prophet in favour of their idols. And as God promised in Leviticus, rebellious children will be eaten by wild animals, so he sends covenant enforcing bears to finally deliver the judgement on Bethel he delayed so long.
  • Bryan Chua on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    Yet, now that he has replaced Elijah, the people still approach him in good faith, requesting his help. So the first thing he does is remove a curse from the waters of Jericho, waters that kill and poison the land. And this water was cursed by God himself, through Joshua when he cursed those that would rebuild Jericho ( Joshua 6: 26). So this shows God is willing to forgive and bring salvation through Elisha.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    Elisha is not just any prophet either, but one of 3 assassins foretold to come from God. In fact the first time he is mentioned in the Bible, God says Elisha is meant to bring judgement and death. That was in 1 kings 19, when Elijah had just gotten the Baal worshipping people of Jericho to acknowledge God after the test at Mount Carmel, yet they still rebelled and threatened to kill Elijah.
  • Bryan on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    You have to read this in context.

    The whole of chapter 2 in Kings 2 is about the transition of Elijah to Elisha, as foretold.

    They journey in a specific order, from Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and across the Jordan. This is the exact opposite order of how Joshua came to the promised land, indicating this is how Elijah leaves the promised land. Elisha is tested 3 times to stay but he follows Elijah, showing patient faith. Elijah does not admonish him because it really is a test of Elisha's faith, not Elisha disobeying Elijah. Elijah parts the river Jordan on his way out, and Elisha parts in on his way back, showing he has inherited Elijah spirit and power from God.

    Theres a deeper meaning to this i think than understood by those who commented before me. Correcting "little"children I know is necessary, but to be torn up by a couple of she bears, I think deserves a little study and understanding correlating spiritual and physical text. sometimes it's one or the other , sometimes its both, just saying. God bless you and your families.
  • Chaplain Bob Walker - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    1 Corinthians Chapter 15 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. the LAST TRUMP is the 7th one at the end of the tribulation.

    The anointing of GOD my Holy Father makes me to see the eight, being the few, who are alive and remain in the earth beneath. So by my Father making me to know the eight, my Father also makes me to easily see ye wicked, being many. My Father gives it to me to divide the sheep from the goats. It is written, THERE IS no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
  • I am - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    Nay. For the very elect of GOD is the Christ child himself, even Christ resurrected again from the dead, by the anointing of GOD my Holy Father. It is written, For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if IT WERE possible, they shall deceive the very elect. and, If we believe not, YET he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
  • Stephen - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    The Rapture will take place before the Tribulation period. And the Rapture isn't a mere theory. Read 1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18
  • Stephen - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    The children are mocking how Elijah went to heaven. In a chariot of fire. They are mocking a miracle of God. They are saying, "Hey, baldy, go up like Elijah"! They are making fun of God's man, a prophet set apart and holy. They also are showing a disbelief in the miracle. Just like people today make fun of us when we look for that Blessed Hope and the appearance of Jesus in the Rapture.
  • Geri - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    At the 6th trump the enemy is coming instead of Christ. Mother will give up daughter because she believes this is Christ. Christ will come we will change into the spirit as He is so we are able to see Christ as He really. For the Elect sake the time of seven years is changed to five and one half months because the imposter is that good TO FOOL the very Elect. That's the tradition of rapture theory
  • Geri - In Reply on 2 Kings 2 - 4 years ago
    Right! god knows the heart of everyone. however, your thought about "rapture" should be researched. check out the seven trumps. who will be coming at the seventh trump? jesus right. if the enemy of jesus is coming instead of jesus, when do you see that imposter coming? at the sixth trump? right? right therefore, he will be beguiling everyone with kindness as jesus would do. he will be taking one

  • Steven Lacey-James on 2 Kings 2 - 5 years ago
    Take the bible LITERALLY!

    The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY (Jesus Christ) knows ALL things, like knowing the future of those children and what they would amount to and ultimately that they would end up in Hell.

    btw...Confessing that Jesus Christ IS GOD COME IN THE FLESH is THE salvation issue.
  • Stephen Botts on 2 Kings 2 - 6 years ago
    The children are like many today that mock Christians for looking for the return of Jesus in the Rapture.
  • April on 2 Kings 2 - 6 years ago
    Eric: I'm curious as to why you think what you think?.
  • Eric on 2 Kings 2 - 6 years ago
    Maybe the prophet needs some guidence. He might be lost.
  • Eric on 2 Kings 2 - 6 years ago
    The children of Israel.
  • Michael L. Felton Sr. on 2 Kings 2 - 6 years ago
    The man of God and all saints should serve the Lord with an aim to beget spiritual children who would accomplish far greater than he has in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

    These are the days of Elijah: Preparing the way of the LORD.
  • Harriet maunda on 2 Kings 2 - 7 years ago
    2 kings 2 its teaching me so main things in life. at time I feel like giving up but kings through Elisha is telling me not to in any situation I should have faith like Elisha.
  • LeeAnne on 2 Kings 2 - 7 years ago
    "children" means anyone younger than the main person being talked about i.e. Elisha. These were young men, adults, not preteens as many might think when someone says "little children". The she bears "tare" this word means to frighten (like scared to death, but not literally die) not maim or kill. The others in the group probably ran as well with a healthy fear of bears.
  • Irene123 on 2 Kings 2 - 7 years ago
    The mantle given to Elisha was - God's doing; not Elisha's. God chose Elisha to replace Elijah as the prophet to HIS people. Elisha, in choosing the 'double portion' did just as God willed. It wasn't Elisha's time for heaven yet.
  • Mukisa francis on 2 Kings 2 - 7 years ago
    It shows me the power of anointing
  • Nyakno Sunday Eduok on 2 KINGs 2 - 8 years ago
