    What is the significance of the meal or the symbolic application of the meal healing the men from the death in the pot?
  • Elder Mary Green
    When you operate in your gift others around you will reap the benefits. Notice, the prophet spent time studying the Word of God. He had a relationship with God. It was a direct line to hear what God had to say and execute.

    he shunamite woman positive confession of faith brought he needed miracle of life o her dead child. Men of God are meant o be problem solvers like Elisha. His life brought joy to the widow the indebted husband, joy to the barren and joy to the sons of the prophet by taking death from the pot. Always put your faith in God and you will never be disappointed
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    God is manifesting Himself through Elisha who has received double portion of his master Elijah's anointing.
  • God is faithful to give us not only the desires of the heart but also supplies o
    I love this lesson because once had no children and I told the lord I wanted children like all my friends and the prophet told me I would be the mother of many children. They told me I would have a son and it would not be long from now. They said soon will go to the doctor and he might just tell you that you are pregnant right now. I went to the doctor and he confirmed I was indeed pregnant.

    CommentThe woman exercised faith by runing to the prophet and answering him that all was well while it was not so. and Gpd raised her son acording to her pronoucement. God of Elija is great.
  • Lenda Kelley
    I believe that in Christ Jesus, I've received this grace, this anointing,
  • Kirianki
    We should be faithful before the lord always
  • AG Samuel
    Our LORD is very steadfast in His character and doings that in every thing He does, Life is certain! Only for a little season debt reigned in the son of the prophets's family; only for a little while did the food in the pot remain bitter; only for a few hours did the Shunamite's son remain dead. The moment the power of God becomes active via faith in us as was seen in Elijah's, everything bows!

    Why did he called him
  • Anne
    The woman in this chapter took care of the prophet of God and received a prophet's reward.
    She was blessed abundantly.

    TOPIC: Is Your Family Alive And Well? 2King 4:24-27 24Then she saddled an **, and said to her servant, Drive, and go forward slack not thy riding for me, except I bid thee. 25 So she went and came unto the man of God to mount Carmel. And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunammite: 26 Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well. 27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught him by the feet: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God said, Let her alone for her soul is vexed within her: and the LORD hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.
  • Pastor Dave for verse 3
    It 's simply saying that we should enlarge or expound our coasts or horizons
  • Joseph
    God gives hope,streight,power when there is none
  • Bisi
    Wooh! I got an answer to my prayers, I needed divine wisdom for my graduate program and God just confirmed to me that all things is possible for me, praise The Lord. Just as the woman open her door to Elisha and he went in and blessed her, so will Jesus bless you if you open the door of your heart for Him as He stands knocking at your door, give Him a chance and you will be glad you did, He will save and bless you.
  • Simeon for verse 27
    Whilst we know of God being averse of doing anything without informing first his servants the prophets see Amos 3 7 ,here we observe God in HIS typical providential nature and divine foresight, 'hiding ' death in order to reveal resurrection power to man.
  • Lungile Maseko
    God is able to multiply the little, to give what you do 'nt have and to restore what is what is dead in our lives.
  • Olise patricia ochikwuma

    The almighty God reveals wisdom and knowledge to those who love him. It is all or nothing for Christ Jesus. To live the life of Christ is to embrace the lifestyle of the gospel and not of this world. Only then can we witness the Lord's grace.
  • Felicia Ofem
    This portion of the Bible is loaded, and it brings encouragement to the body of Christ.
  • Hayzie
    Little is much when God is in it. That applies in every level of circumstances we come across, not only food but also other means of life too.

    This book is currently helping me through a situation. My job is due to end on March 27, 2013. During a brief moment of anxiety I asked the Lord to give me a word to comfort me. He led me directly to this book and in particular the story about the oil, and how after selling what she was blessed with that, there was enough remaining for her and her children to live off with. No coincidence. I asked fit comfort and He basically, he allowed the Bible to fall on that particular story. Again, no coincidence.
  • Annette Okereke
    Whose report shall we believe? The report of the Lord. We should run to our source of hope, the only one who can really help,.. God. His ears are open to our cries... This man of God knows his God, he was strong and did exploits. I pray that God will raise people for this generation that will continue in this path.. "these signs shall follow them that believe in my name, they will lay hands on the sick and the sick will recover......"
  • Nonceba Xelisilo
    When the Shunammite woman noticed that Elisha was an Holy man of God without being told, she teaches us that as we have Christ in our lives, people must see it before we even mention it.
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    I SEE THE IN THIS CHAPTER HOW ELISHA IS PERFORMING SOME OF THE SAME MIRACLES THAT OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR ALSO PERFORMED. HE (ELISHA) PERFORMED THESE MIRACLES OUT OF LOVE FOR OTHERS. THE EXAMPLE THAT WE AS PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE IS TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND ASSIST THOSE IN NEED AS IF NEED OURSELVES. WE MAY NOT CAN CHANGE WATER INTO WINE, BUT WE CAN LEND A HAND.
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    IN THIS CHAPTER, THE PEOPLE GET TO SEE SOME OF THE MIRICLES WHICH WERE LATER DEMONSTRATED BY OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THESE MIRACLES WERE OUT OF LOVE, BUT FOR OUR CURRENT EDUCATION AS TO THE LIMITLESS POWER OF GOD.
  • Edy Smith for verse 32
    This is a wonderful example of the love of the Almighty God and his Son Jesus Christ, the power of the resurrection gives hope. Romans 6:23 states "For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord." Since we are all born in sin due to Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, we all must die, but Jesus tells us there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous, a second chance to learn about our Almighty God and His loving Son, Jesus. We have the power of free will a wonderful gift to either be obedient to Gods commands and principles or as Adam and Eve did, continue to be disobedient to God's law and God's new covenant put in place by Jesus Christ. When Christ comes with his mighty angels and defeats Satan and his demons at Armageddon; the wicked will also be destroyed never to rise again and we can all see the prophecy of Psalms 37:9-11; 21-22; 28-29; Psalms 115:16; Isaiah 45:18; Revelation 4:5 will be realized because all the wicked will be destroyed from the face of the earth and His will will have been done on earth as in Heaven. The great crowd of which no man would be able to number of all tribes, nations, peoples and tongues will be living in peace, harmony and unity, throughout paradise earth under Almighty God's theocratic government - His Heavenly Kingdom. Gods name Jehovah will be vindicated; his Son rules as King of Jehovah's Kingdom with his 144,000 co-rulers as mentioned at Revelation 20:6: "Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and will rule as kings with him for the thousand years." The scripture at Revelation 20:6 indicates two classes: the rulers, and those ruled. Regardless of the class to which you hope to belong, obedience and faithfulness toward the truth are constant requirements. The prospective members of the royal priesthood need to keep their vision clear and their hope bright, and completely do the will of God. Those hoping for everlasting life on earth in the theocratic new world are eager to learn of the requirements and faithfulness of the royal body of priests that is to rule for the thousand years, and learn to be faithful. Those of the anointed are happy to learn of Jehovah's purpose to bless and give life to millions of humans. So also those who look forward to living on earth forever will be happy to know about the royal priesthood, to which they will be subject.
    3 Jehovah's purpose to have a kingdom of priests was expressed to his typical people Israel at Mount Sinai. Moses was inspired to inform them: "Now if you will strictly obey my voice and will indeed keep my covenant, then you will certainly become my special property out of all other peoples, because the whole earth belongs to me. And you yourselves will become to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." (Exodus 19:5, 6, NW) Israel was to be a sacred kingdom under Jehovah, a real theocracy, a royal nation, living under the rules and rites of the Most High. The word "kingdom" as used in this verse has the meaning of royalty, dynasty, sovereignty. It meant that Jehovah purposed a royal, priestly race, a dynasty of priests, each member having the qualifications and attributes of kings and priests. Typically Israel was the kingdom of Jehovah, but they were unfaithful and disobedient. Later, when Jehovah sent his Son, Christ Jesus, the Kingdom heir, to them, they rejected him, the Stone of Zion. This typical house of Israel had lost sight of the purpose of Jehovah, and was building in opposition to God's will. Jesus said to them: "'The stone that the builders rejected is the one that has become the chief cornerstone. From Jehovah this has come to pass and it is marvelous in our eyes.' This is why I say to you, The kingdom of God will be taken from you and be given to a nation producing its fruits."-Matthew 21:42, 43. THIS IS GOOD NEWS TO THE NATIONS (GENTILES) Jehovah's rejection of the nation of Israel and taking the Kingdom from them opened the door for people of the nations (Gentiles) to have the great privilege of becoming a part of the priestly nation. Cornelius of the uncircumcised Gentiles was the first, and Peter said when visiting him: "'You well know how unlawful it is for a Jew to join himself to or approach a man of another race; and yet God has shown me I should call no man defiled or unclean.' . . . 'For a certainty I perceive that God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.'" (Acts 10:28-35) Paul was commissioned to go to the nations, as Jesus said of him: "This man is a chosen vessel to me to bear my name to the nations as well as to kings and the sons of Israel." Again, to the Jews, "Paul and Barnabas said: 'It was necessary for the word of God to be spoken first to you. Since you are thrusting it away from you and do not judge yourselves worthy of everlasting life, look! we turn to the nations. In fact, Jehovah has laid commandment upon us in these words, "I have appointed you as a light of nations, for you to be a salvation to the most distant part of the earth."'"-Acts 9:15; 13:46, 47.

    The TRUTH shall set you FREE.
