  • Warren for verse 24
    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.

    God is Good

    Stephen, while I mostly agree with your mostly unstated premise that the children of today are getting worse and worse, I disagree with your analysis. It is totally and completely different to mock a Christian for looking for the return of Jesus in the rapture...and simply calling someone 'bald'. Is that a sin? Is it such a dreadful sin that children should be slaughtered for calling someone bald?
  • Stephen
    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
    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
  • Stephen
    The Rapture will take place before the Tribulation period. And the Rapture isn't a mere theory. Read 1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18
  • Chaplain Bob Walker
    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.
  • Steven Lacey-James
    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
    The children are like many today that mock Christians for looking for the return of Jesus in the Rapture.
  • Geri
    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
  • I am
    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
    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.

    Eric: I'm curious as to why you think what you think?.
  • Eric
    Maybe the prophet needs some guidence. He might be lost.
  • Eric
    The children of Israel.
  • Michael L. Felton Sr.
    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
    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
    "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
    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
    It shows me the power of anointing
  • Nyakno Sunday Eduok
    Please pray for me that Jesus Christ should give me knowledge, wisdom and sound understand
  • 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
  • Harun kiarie
    Its really appealling how a master gives elisha a choise of wat to be granted thats true leadership
  • Grace Ameh for verse 21
    I love this part of the bible. Expecially how the miracle happened, from the source went forth the healing of the waters. I love the way God works.
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • James Greene for verse 9
    We need double portion of God 's spirit and a double portion of God 's blessing 2Kings verse 9 10
  • Esi Newman for verse 12
    This is exactly how the rapture will be. Within a twinkle of an eye.
  • Ray Mendoza for verse 23
    Notice how the passage lacks fluidity with the verses before and after? Seems to be thrown in there for no apparent reason as it has nothing to do with the context of passages surrounding it. And why is it that a curse so simply verbalized then immediately bringing about the consequence of said curse and yet when persecuted by the royal court and Baals prophets these men of God fled in hiding Elijah . Why not just curse them?
  • Gabrial Delu
    these chapter clearly demostrate the GOD 'S power bestowed on a believer like ELIJA, of which upon his depature to heaven unusual transfered that power bestowment to his spiritual son ELISHA to continue with the miracles of GOD
