The life of Elisha reveals to us that with God's will and help all things are possible when faith is manifested in our great God though the name of Jesus Christ.

Of course the covenant that Elisha lived under was not the same as we live under. We have a new and better covenant through Jesus Christ to follow, but faith manifested in both covenants is the key element to success.

The bible clearly states that out of the mouth of two or even three witnesses shall all things be verified or proven of the Lord. Jesus' ministry provides a witness of the truth of our heavenly Father and Creator's existence though signs, miracles and wonders being performed over and over again in both covenants.

And now through believers today all over the world miracles, signs and wonders are still taking place through the heirs, the sons and daughters of our great God born again through the power of the Holy Spirit sent to us by Jesus Christ's great works.

Oh, what a beautiful savior, Oh what a wonderful Lord and King that we have to follow after, full of love and wonderment. Faith is the key that unlocks these manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the earth today.

God's will for us was revealed to us through the very words of Jesus. He said: Greater works than these would be performed through the sons and daughters of God born of the Holy Spirit. All we have to do is ask, seek, and knock. Fast, pray, have faith, and wait on the Lord. Sometimes it comes faster than a speeding bullet and sometimes it manifests over a time period, but without faith it is impossible to please our God.

Let's not forget trust, for though he slay me yet shall I serve Him. Even in death we can still serve the Lord.
