Days of Elisha

DAYS OF ELISHA

Tonight (Wednesday 08/31, 7:00 pm), gather with your Calvary Chapel family in the Holy Ground Cafe’ or on our website (www.calvaryinv.com), Facebook, and Youtube (Calvary Inverness) as we continue with our three-year journey through the Bible (2 Kings 1-5).

Few people in the sixty-six books of the Bible are like Elijah. He appears on the scene out of nowhere. His first assignment was to go and tell King Ahab that God would bring a three-year drought due to him forsaking the commandments of God.  

God used Elijah in mind-blowing, miraculous ways. He was a fearless, courageous, bold man of God.  Yet, the Bible states that he was an ordinary man.  He had moments of frustration, fear, anxieties, bouts of depression, and doubts.

God knew Elijah, for He was the One who had formed him. He never left or forsook Elijah; instead, He made provision for him. One of the ways this was done was when God told Elijah to find and anoint Elisha to be his successor.  

Elisha would prove to be more than a pupil and successor to Elijah. God worked through Elisha to be a close friend, ministry partner, and confidant. Thus, Elisha became what people need today.  A friend.  Someone who is there through the thick and the thin. Someone who encourages you when down and challenges you when you are slacking.

The Bible states that Elisha would perform double the miracles that Elijah had.  His ministry would impact the Kings of Northern and Southern Israel, the people that had been forgotten and left behind by society, and the Gentiles. They would, along with everyone else that encountered Elisha, come to know that the God of Israel is God and that there is no other.

Please pray that this three-year journey, through the Word of God, will be received by open hearts that long to grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus. And that He would do a deep and practical Work in and through us for a world in desperate need of a Savior.
In His Strong Love,
Pastor
