ELISHA SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

I have read to you the introductory verses of the chapter which give us the transition between Elijah, the fiery prophet of God, and Elisha, the young protégé. The name, Elijah, mean the Lord Yahweh lives. Elisha means God is salvation. You have a study in contrast when you study these prophets of God. Elijah was the fiery type. He is the one, who on the mount of Carmel, confronted...

Great outbursts of the miraculous, writes Canon Liddon, ''attesting God's energetic presence at particular times in particular places, appear to recur in the sacred history in cycles, when truth has to be announced-when it has to be promulgated afresh-when it has to be saved from extinction.'' The miracles which mark the life of Elijah and Elisha belong to the third cycle, for...

As we continue down the original Route 66, preaching through the Bible, we are in a sub-series called Bible Giants which is based on the Biblical books of history. We are choosing characters from this part of God's word and seeing how they relate to our lives today. Elisha was truly a Bible giant.

''And Elisha prayed, and said, 'Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.' Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha'' (2 Kings 6:17). When Elisha's servant looked outside the city walls of Dothan the first time, all that he saw was horses of flesh and blood and...

INTRO. Of all the things he could have asked for, Elisha asked for God's best! ILL. Did you as a child ever play the game of saying if you had 1 wish, what would you wish for? Most of the time for me it was all the money in the world! How often we misguide our children by our values. Physical, beauty, material possession. We fail to convey to them that we would rather have...

God had a plan for Elisha's life. God had already chosen him for a special task. Elisha could have blown it! 1. Elisha had a Heart after God! There was a secret searching after God. He was not shocked when Elijah came by! He know immediately what Elijah wanted. ''So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son...

We have all heard people claim to speak for God. We have heard people claim to have heard God speak to them. The Bible is full of such stories. It speaks of many prophets, or spokesmen, for God. It also speaks of false prophets and those who would claim a word from God, when that word in not one that comes from God. The Apostle Paul claims at times to speak for God, at times for himself, and at times seemingly...

Tell about Night Vision. A movie story when they have an advantage over the enemy because of the night vision goggles. Tell a story of seeing something in my closet. I finally turned on the light and realized it was a shadow. Backdrop: We find ourselves in the life of Elisha the prophet. He has the ability given to him by the...

Whenever I visit my son, Josh, in Nashville, we always go to one of his favorite places, the Bongo Java Coffee House, right next to Belmont University Campus; and the Bongo Java Coffee House is just a tremendous coffee house. It's a great atmosphere, and Josh really thinks so because when he went to Belmont, we would get his debit card receipts and see that he spent...
