ALTAR DAY “My One Word” 2017 2 Kings 13:14-20
WHAT IS A “ONE WORD” ALTAR?
THE ARROW THAT PREDICTS MY FUTURE.
2 Kings 13:14-17
When Elisha became sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash the king of Israel came down to him and wept over him and said, “My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!” 15And Elisha said to him, “Take a bow and arrows.” So he took a bow and arrows. 16Then he said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow.” And he put his hand on it, then Elisha laid his hands on the king’s hands. 17And he said, “Open the window toward the east,” and he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot!” And he shot. And he said, “The LORD’s arrow of victory, even the arrow of victory over Aram; for you shall defeat the Arameans at Aphek until you have destroyed them.”
The Four Predictive Principles Of “My One Word.”
#1: Every Story Of TRANSFORMATION Begins With A WORD From God.
#2: Do SOMETHING About ONE THING Instead Of NOTHING About Everything.
#3: My One Word is a LENS through which you will SEE, not a PROMISE which you must keep.
#4: Keep Your “Word From God” In FRONT of you so you won’t FORGET God’s Voice.
THE POINT I KEEP STRIKING THE GROUND.
2 Kings 13:18-20
Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground,” and he struck it three times and stopped. 19So the man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck five or six times, then you would have struck Aram until you would have destroyed it. But now you shall strike Aram only three times.” 20And Elisha died, and they buried him.
THE PLOW AND OXEN I BURN.
1 Kings 19:19, 21
So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him. 21So he returned from following him, and took the pair of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the implements of the oxen, and gave it to the people and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him.
