2 Kings 2:11
“Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
-It was known that Elijah would be taken by the horses & chariots of the Lord & the people including Elijah kept reminding Elisha that the time had come to stop following him. Elisha remained focused on his prayer & stuck to Elijah’s side foreseeing Gods’ glory. Elijah struck the river Jordan which split into two & they both crossed just like the time of the Israelites deliverance from bondage in Egypt where Moses parted the Red Sea; which served as a reminder that Yahweh saves & immediately after crossing, Elisha made his request. Elisha’s perseverance informs us that persistence in prayer yields fruit as his request for a double portion was honored after the horses & chariot of fire raptured Elijah into heaven. Gods’ sovereign power was yet again displayed over nature & creation as He sent horses & a chariot of fire to take up Elijah in a whirlwind into His glory in heaven.
You are holy Lord our God Almighty Who was Who is & Who is to come, we adore & glorify You. Your servant Elijah did not face death for You triumphed gloriously over death, we believe that we shall not die but live to proclaim Your salvation Lord. Many deaths have recently occurred in our nation & in other nations including Indonesia, we rebuke the spirit of premature death over us, over our families, over our generations & over all the people in the world for victory belongs to You Jesus. Protect us & cover us by Your precious blood & hedge of fire King of glory that no evil snare will overtake us Jesus. Your grace is sufficient for us Lord, hear our prayers loving Father. Amen
