Insights from Kings

I Kings 17:24 Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is truth.”

Unbelievable. There she was – no bread, only a handful of flour in the bowl and a little oil in the jar (verse 12). Elijah told her plainly that the flour and oil would last until God sent rain again (verse 14) and they ate for many days. That wasn’t enough proof for her that Elijah was a man of God and that his word was true?

II Kings 2-4

I was reading the miracles that Elisha did and wondered why John the Baptist was the Elijah that was to come and not Elisha, since Elisha was greater. I realized that Elisha had a double portion of Elijah’s spirit and Jesus had much more that John the Baptist. I wonder why the Bible never matched Elisha and Jesus the way it did Elijah and John the Baptist. Because Jesus is matchless and no one can compare!

II Kings 7:2 Then the captain, the king’s right hand man, responded to the man of God, “Look even if the Lord were to make windows in heaven, could this really happen?”

Don’t ever speak out against a prophecy. Don’t ever say or think that what God says will happen is impossible. Definitely don’t make mock or make fun or be sarcastic – it got the captain dead.
