2 Kings 2:3 – The company of the prophets at Bethel came out to Elisha and asked, “Do you know that the LORD is going to take your master from you today?” “Yes, I know,” Elisha replied, “so be quiet.” In this study, we will look at Elisha’s coming out as a prophet and what the knowledge of God taking Elijah away would do for him in the future.
1 Kings 19:4 – while he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.” Elijah the prophet once prayed for God to let him die. In this study, we will look specifically into why God did not take his life away.
