Today’s verse

2 Corinthians 12:15 NLT
I will gladly spend myself and all I have for you, even though it seems that the more I love you, the less you love me.

Today’s reading
2 Kings 2

Elijah Taken into Heaven



Elijah has quite a track record: spitefully teasing the false prophets of Baal, parting the Jordan River, making the rain stop, calling for wet wood to burst into flame, and standing closer to God than anyone since Moses. After Elijah’s ascent into heaven, the Jews waited in anticipation for his return. In later tradition they even set out an empty chair at their circumcisions and a cup of wine at Passover in hopes that he would join them—they believed that the return of Elijah meant the promised Savior would be close on his heels and would join them.

Elijah actually does show up on earth again, but not to pave the way for the Messiah as the people hoped. When Jesus takes his three closest followers up to a mountain, Jesus’ appearance is awesomely transformed—his clothes become dazzling white—then Elijah and Moses appear and speak with him (Matthew 17:1-13; Mark 9:2-13; Luke 9:28-36). Elijah’s “return” to earth affirms that Jesus is the promised Messiah and the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies—the hope the world was waiting for. Elijah’s amazing departure to heaven, escorted by a chariot of fire is nothing compared to the glory of Elijah having this amazing role in revealing Jesus as the true Savior for humanity.

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, just as quickly as this week went by, the new week is upon us. Help me rest in You, and help me renew my strength for the new week ahead. O how I need You. Fill me with the fruit of the Spirit. Guide my steps and light my path. O that You would continue to bless me and mine, that You would enlarge our territory for Your will and purpose, that You would lay Your hand upon us, keep us from evil and causing pain. Amen
