The King of Aram versus Elisha….. read 2 Kings 6:8-23
- 8 The enemy has plans.
Can you think of an occasion when the enemy of your soul has made plans against you or someone you know?
- 10 The King of Israel checked out what the prophet said and found it was true.
If a prophet speaks in your meeting, do you…
- check out what they say?
- not really listen?
- have a “wait and see” attitude?
- ignore it?
- 12 People in the enemy camp recognise the prophetic gift.
Is a prophetic gift accepted in your christian circles?
- 14 The enemy (a strong force) came by night.
Have you experienced the enemy force at night…
- in your thoughts?
- in your dreams?
- in reality?
- 15 The servant was afraid because of what he saw.
Read 2 Corinthians 5:7
Remember Jesus calmed the storm. John 6:18-21
- 16 Elisha saw with his spiritual eyes.
Do you understand that there are more angels with you than demons against you?
- 17 One quick word from Elisha and God did it.
Can you remember a time when an “arrow” prayer was answered very quickly?
- 17 The servant was amazed by the unseen world which surrounded him.
Do you believe in angels?
Read Matthew 18:10 & Hebrews 1:14
Have you ever seen one? Or more?
- 18 No fighting. Just very specific prayer.
Do you think it’s OK to pray for your enemy to be afflicted?
Was the blindness total or just so they couldn’t recognise Elisha?
- 19 Elisha lied! Is that OK in a spiritual battle?
What about the belt of truth we should wear? (Ephesians 6:14)
- 19-20 He led them to their enemy, the King of Israel, a days walk away!
What an example of Elisha’s faith, that his enemy would follow him all day and not recognise him!
How strong is your faith?
- 21 The King of Israel asks the prophet’s advice.
Do you know anyone who seeks a prophet’s advice before making major decisions?
What about fortune tellers?
- 22 Elisha’s advice to the king is a forerunner of Jesus telling us to love our enemies.
How easy for you is it to be nice to those you don’t like and who don’t like you? (Matt. 5:43)
