Elijah said to Elisha, “Please stay here; the LORD has sent me on to the Jordan.” “As the LORD lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you,” Elisha replied.  And so the two went on together. 2_Kgs_2:1,6-14

. . The unbreakable bond of fellowship . .

. . when the two stopped at the Jordan, . . . Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up and struck the water, which divided, and both crossed over on dry ground. ibid

Now, that sounds familiar (Moses at the Sea, Joshua at the Jordan River).

. . . As they walked on conversing, a flaming chariot and flaming horses came between them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. ibid

That’s how I want to go too!  And it doesn’t even have to be real flaming horses and a chariot. I’ll even be happy with an LED flashlight in a Ford Mustang.  Just quick and painless!

After Elijah was gone, Elisha went back and stood at the bank of the Jordan.  Wielding the mantle that had fallen from Elijah, Elisha struck the water in his turn and said, “Where is the LORD, the God of Elijah?”  When Elisha struck the water it divided and he crossed over. ibid

Now, that’s pretty cool!

Jesus said to his disciples: “Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. Mt_6:1-6,16-18

Ahhhhh, not for the show.  Not for OUR glory, but ALL for the Glory of God!  Use me Lord, however you like!
