Audio: The Miracles of Elisha

When Elijah was getting old, he needed someone to take his place to give God’s message to the people. One day he saw Elisha in the field, plowing. God told Elijah to throw his big sheepskin cloak over Elisha’s shoulders. So he did. This meant God wanted Elisha to follow Elijah and to become a messenger too.

 

Elisha was very excited and happy to be chosen. He wanted to learn all he could from the old prophet before Elijah went to heaven. And one day when they were walking together, some heavenly horses of fire pulling a chariot suddenly appeared in the sky. Elisha and Elijah jumped apart as the fiery horses rushed between them. As Elisha watched, the fiery horses and chariot picked Elijah up and carried him up to heaven in a whirlwind. As he went up, Elijah’s cloak fell down in front of Elisha, and Elisha became God’s new messenger. God did many wonderful things through Elisha.

Here’s a song about some of the miracles He did.

Verse 1:
Elisha threw some salt into the spring
And he prayed for the water to be clean.
Elisha threw some salt into the spring
And he prayed for the water to be clean.
And the river began to flow,
The trees and flowers grow.
Elisha threw some salt into the spring
And he prayed for the water to be clean.

Verse 2:
Elisha said to Naaman, "You'll be fine
If you wash in the river seven times."
Elisha said to Naaman, "You'll be fine
If you wash in the river seven times."
Naaman took a swim that day
And his sores went all away.
Elisha said to Naaman, "You'll be fine
If you wash in the river seven times."

Verse 3:
Elisha threw a stick into the stream
And the axe that was sinking could be seen.
Elisha threw a stick into the stream
And the axe that was sinking could be seen.
"It was borrowed!" said the boy,
Who took it back with joy.
Elisha threw a stick into the stream
And the axe that was sinking could be seen.
