BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 21, 1 Samuel 22, 1 Samuel 23, John 18:1-24, Proverbs 13:10-19
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Kings 2:6-18 (KJV)
6 And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I pray thee, here; for the Lord hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on.
7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan.
8 And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.
9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
10 And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.
11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;
14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
15 And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.
16 And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the Lord hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send.
17 And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not.
18 And when they came again to him, (for he tarried at Jericho,) he said unto them, Did I not say unto you, Go not?

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
Today, as we round off our discourse on the Lord God of Elijah and why we need to connect to Him, I would like us to examine more important issues about this unusual God.
Elisha asked this important question because he needed to be sure that Elijah’s God was with him, as He was with his predecessor. Though he had Elijah’s mantle in his hand, it would amount to an ordinary piece of cloth if he did not have Elijah’s God. He replicated what Elijah did with his mantle by parting River Jordan with Elijah’s mantle and crossing it. The sons of the prophets saw the miracle and they bowed to him. I pray that your enemies and mockers will bow to you, in the name of Jesus. When Joshua succeeded Moses, God gave him an assurance, “No man shall be able to stand before you; as I am with Moses, so I will be with you…” (Joshua 1:5). Therefore, the God of Elijah is the God who graciously gives His abiding presence to His servants.
Also, the God of Elijah keeps His children in the midst of a pervert generation, and even in perilous times. Beloved, the God who kept Elijah faithful when most of the Israelites had turned away from Him can keep you faithful and loyal. The Bible says about the same God, “Unto Him who is able to keep us from falling and present us blameless before His throne, be glory and honour forever, in the name of Jesus.”
In addition, the God of Elijah whom Elisha called upon in that critical moment is the God that answers prayers. Elijah was a man mighty in prayer. The wonderful proofs that characterised his public ministry confirm that. His unfailing decree also attests to it.
The God of Elijah gives His servants the spirit of grace and supplication; He turns them to prayer warriors and intercessors as well as His partners in fulfilling His end-time agenda. More than ever before, the world needs more men of fire and prayer like Moses, Elijah and Elisha that He will use to continue to demonstrate His power. Finally, the God of Elijah raises the dead and orchestrates revival. Beloved, connect to the Lord God of Elijah today.
