Being Faithful and Unfaithful to God

Sin and Unfaithful of Judah's kings (David 's descendants) resulted in the destruction of Jerusalem and Davidic kingdom.But God in His faithfulness ,fulfilled His covenant promise to David (2 Sam 7:16Your house and kingdom will endure forever before me, Your throne will be established for ever) through Jesus Christ ,son of David whose reign and kingdom will never end.

2 kings is also an illustration of what happens when we make anything more important than God ,when we make bad alliances,when we do not know what is right ,when we do not discern God's purpose in our lives.we may fail like people of Judah and Israel but God's promises will not fail.God is always there ,to help us to straighten out our lives and start again.

On Dangerous Ground

2 Kings 1:2-4 Through spiritualism many of the sick, the bereaved, the curious, are communicating with evil spirits.

All who venture to do this are on dangerous ground.
The word of truth declares how God regards them.

In ancient times He pronounced a stern judgment on a king who had sent for counsel to a heathen oracle: "Now therefore thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die."

Refusing to Be Diverted 2 Kings 2:1-6
In his early labor of guiding the plow, Elisha had learned not to fail or to become discouraged; and now that he had set his hand to the plow in another line of duty, he would not be diverted from his purpose.

As often as the invitation to turn back was given, his answer was, "As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee" (2 Kings 2:2)

Elijah Was a Type 2 Kings 2:11
Elijah was a type of the saints who will be living on the earth at the time of the second advent of Christ and who will be "changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump," without tasting death (1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)

Mocking God's Prophets 2 Kings 2:23, 24
Had Elisha allowed the mockery to pass unnoticed, he would have continued to be ridiculed and reviled by the rabble, and his mission to instruct and save in a time of grave national peril might have been defeated.

This one instance of terrible severity was sufficient to command respect throughout his life.

For fifty years he went in and out of the gate of Bethel, and to and fro in the land, from city to city, passing through crowds of idle, rude, dissolute youth; but none mocked him or made light of his qualifications as the prophet of the Most High.

Even kindness should have limits. Authority must be maintained by a firm severity, or it will be received by many with mockery and contempt.

The so-called tenderness, the coaxing and indulgence, used toward youth by parents and guardians, is one of the worst evils which can come upon them.

In every family, firmness, decision, positive requirements, are essential.

Reverence, in which the youth who mocked Elisha were so lacking, is a grace that should be carefully cherished.

Every child should be taught to show true reverence for God. Never should His name be spoken lightly or thoughtlessly. Angels, as they speak it, veil their faces. With what reverence should we, who are fallen and sinful, take it upon our lips!

Faith Rewarded 2 Kings 4: 17-37
So was the faith of the Shunammite woman rewarded. Christ, the great Life-giver, restored her son to her. In like manner will His faithful ones be rewarded, when, at His coming, death loses its sting and the grave is robbed of the victory it has claimed. Then will He restore to His servants the children that have been taken from them by death.
