Journal Through the Bible: Week 51 Thursday

II Kings chapter 2

With the exception of Enoch, no one else but Elijah was taken alive in his natural body into Heaven!

Does God issue any commands?

  • God did not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God did not speak, however, Elijah told Elisha that he would need to be witness to Elijah's ascent for his request of a double portion of Elijah's spirit to rest upon him. This would need to be a promise that came from the LORD.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • The Chariot of Israel that carried Elijah to Heaven is also a picture of Jesus. It is through Jesus that entrance is gained into Heaven.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • It is probable that at least one of the two prophets in Revelation chapter 11 is Elijah, one of only two men in the Bible who did not die.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
