Bible Lesson 26 Elisha Displays God’s Power

Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to give recognition to those who labor among you and lead you in the Lord and admonish you.    CSB

  1. An Old Testament prophet was someone chosen by God and divinely inspired to know and prophesy about the future.
  2. Elijah can be characterized as a prophet of judgment and Elisha as more of a prophet of mercy.
  3. It is important to listen to God to know His will and to be able to guide others to Him.
  4. God performed a miracle through Elisha immediately after Elijah was taken to heaven. This showed that Elisha was now God’s chosen prophet.
  5. A juvenile delinquent is someone who is not yet an adult and whose behavior is rebellious and beyond parental control. The Old Testament punishment for a rebellious youth was death by stoning. God wanted to remove evil from the land and to encourage youths to fear and obey Him.
  6. A rebellious gang of youths was maliciously ridiculing and disrespecting God and His servant Elisha.
  7. When Elisha cursed the disrespectful youths, God sent two bears as a judgment against their behavior.
  8. Elisha showed mercy to the widow by providing enough oil so that she could sell it to pay her debts and support her family.
  9. The Shunammite woman honored Elisha by building him an upper room to stay in when he came to visit. God repaid her for this kindness by giving her a son. When her son died, God, through Elisha, raised her son back to life.
  10. Reputation means a widespread belief about a person’s character or abilities.
  11. Naaman was a highly regarded soldier who suffered from leprosy.
  12. Leprosy refers to a dreaded skin disease that deforms its victims.
  13. A young Israelite servant showed leadership when she told Naaman’s wife about a prophet in Israel who could heal Naaman.
  14. The king of Syria gave a letter to Naaman to give to the king of Israel. When the king of Israel read it, he became angry and thought the king of Syria was trying to start a war with him.
  15. When Elisha instructed Naaman to dip himself seven times in the Jordan River, Naaman became very angry. He expected Elisha to meet with him and heal him instantly.
  16. Naaman’s pride nearly cost him his healing. As a result of seeing that God was omnipotent, which means all-powerful, Naaman became a believer.
  17. Gehazi, Elisha’s servant, saw Naaman’s gifts and wanted them for himself. As a result of his selfishness and greed, he was cursed with Naaman’s leprosy.
  18. God protected Elisha and a servant of his by placing a ring of heavenly warriors around his home and then blinding the Syrian army.
  19. God expects people to respect and honor godly leaders by listening to and applying their teaching and wisdom.
