Our scripture tells the story of Elisha succeeding Elijah as the prophet of God. In the transition we are taught an important truth: though God’s messengers may change, God’s message remains the same!
2 Kings 2:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
Elijah Taken Up to Heaven
2 When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven in a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. 2 Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here; the Lord has sent me to Bethel.”
But Elisha said, “As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So they went down to Bethel.
