2 Kings 7-9, Ephesians 1
4even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. -ellie
3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 9making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
Truly God has lavished on us the riches of grace in the Lord Jesus, for we forget that deserve the same horrible suffering of the people of Israel who underwent famine and the same wretched end of Jezebel.
Two things I got from the Old Testament passsage today:
1. God ALWAYS provides (seen when he sent a shared hallucination to the Sirians of the army’s of the Hittites and Egyptians coming to destroy them)
2. When the Lord says he will provide do not doubt but hold tight to the promise made.
Why does Elisha kill himself after he was just told he would recover? Did he not trust his servant or was this an odd way of saying he died? Please help
It was the king of Syria. He sent his servant to Elisha to ask him what would happen. I think if the servant wouldn’t have interfered, the king would have recovered. But Elisha knew the evil in the servant’s heart. Which is why Elisha stared at him after his prophesy. The servant went back and delivered Elisha’s prophesy and then killed the king.
Sometimes in the Bible things get confusing because of all the pronouns that don’t always specify who they’re referring to “he/him/etc”
Elisha said he would recover.. and he did.. but Elisha also saw that he would die.. not from the sickness but from drowning himself..
10And Elisha said to him, “Go, say to him, ‘You shall certainly recover,’ but the Lord has shown me that he shall certainly die.” 15But the next day he took the bed cloth and dipped it in water and spread it over his face, till he died. And Hazael became king in his place.
Abundantly free in Christ!

“Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world.”
How absolutely profound that is to my heart. That he would think of me and choose me to be in him before he even laid the foundation of the world?
