THE SPIRIT OF ELIJAH— Today Pastor Joseph Larson preaches from 2 Kings 2:9-15. The Spirit of Elijah was promised to come to God’s people to prepare them for the coming of Jesus Christ. That Spirit is coming on the church one more time. The prophet Elisha had to pray and seek God to know what to do, and stay in the call that God had on his life. We are living in an age of spiritual decline. Why does God allow us to fall? God will allow us to wander from His ways. The church has welcomed the ways of the world, but the call of God has not changed; we are still called to come out from among them and be separate. Elijah went up into heaven by a chariot of fire; leaving great power, grace, a mantle, and the spirit of Elijah to rest on Elisha. We must live off the provision of God and listen for His voice. We need the same Spirit of Elijah today as then.
