Elisha's Prophecy Fulfilled - Superbook.

Superbook His feast day is on June 14. Elisha (/ᵻˈlaɪʃə/;[1] Hebrew: אֱלִישָׁע, Modern Elisha, Tiberian ʼĔlîšāʻ; "My God is salvation", Greek: Ἐλισσαῖος, Elissaîos or Ἐλισαιέ, Elisaié, Arabic: الْيَسَع Al-Yasaʿ) is a Hebrew prophet and a wonder-worker whose life is documented in the Hebrew Bible. Also mentioned in the New Testament and the Quran,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha Elisha is venerated as a prophet in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Amongst new religious movements, Bahá'í writings refer to him by name.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha His name is commonly transliterated into English as Elisha via Hebrew, Eliseus via Greek and Latin, or Alyasa via Arabic, Elyesa via Turkish. He was a disciple, and even protege, of Elijah and, after Elijah was taken up into the whirlwind, Elisha was accepted as the leader of the sons of the prophets.
To relieve the widow importuned by a hard creditor, Elisha so multiplied a little oil as to enable her, not only to pay her debt, but to provide for her family needs. To reward the rich lady of Shunem for her hospitality, he obtained for her from Yahweh, at first the birth of a son, and subsequently the resurrection of her child, who had died. To nourish the sons of the prophets pressed by famine, Elisha changed into wholesome food the pottage made from poisonous gourds.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha
Elisha cured the Syrian military commander Naaman of leprosy but punished his own servant Gehazi, who took money from Naaman.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha Naaman, at first reluctant, obeyed Elisha, and washed seven times in the Jordan. Finding his flesh "restored like the flesh of a little child", the general was so impressed by this evidence of God's power, and by the disinterestedness of His Prophet, as to express his deep conviction that "there is no other God in all the earth, but only in Israel". In the Christian tradition, Jesus referred to this event when he said, "And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet: and none of them was cleansed but Naaman the Syrian".en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha
Elisha's public political actions included repeatedly saving King Jehoram of Israel from the ambushes planned by Benhadad,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha ordering the elders to shut the door against the messenger of Israel's ungrateful king,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha bewildering with a strange blindness the soldiers of the Syrian king,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha making iron float to relieve from embarrassment a son of a prophet,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha confidently predicting the sudden flight of the enemy and the consequent cessation of the famine,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha and unmasking the treachery of Hazael.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha
Other miracles Elisha accomplishes include multiplying the twenty loaves of new barley into a sufficient supply for a hundred men, and for a disciple of the schools of the prophets, he recovers an axe fallen into the waters of the Jordan.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha He administered the miracle at Dothan, half-way on the road between Samaria and Jezreel, and at the siege of Samaria by the king of Syria, Elisha prophesied about the terrible sufferings of the people of Samaria and their eventual relief.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha
Elisha then journeyed to Damascus and prophesied that Hazael would be king over Syria;en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha thereafter he directs one of the sons of the prophets to anoint Jehu, the son of Jehoshaphat, king of Israel, in place of Ahab. Mindful of the order given to Elijah, Elisha delegated a son of one of the prophets to quietly anoint Jehu King of Israel, and to commission him to cut off the house of Ahab.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha The death of Jehoram, pierced by an arrow from Jehu's bow, the ignominious end of Jezebel, the slaughter of Ahab's seventy sons, proved how faithfully executed was the Divine command.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha After predicting to Jehoash his victory over the Syrians at Aphek, as well as three other subsequent victories, ever bold before kings, ever kindly towards the lowly, "Elisha died, and they buried him".en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha

While Elisha lay on his death-bed in his own house,en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha Jehoash, the grandson of Jehu, came to mourn over his approaching departure, and uttered the same words as those of Elisha when Elijah was taken away, indicating his value to him: "My father, my father! the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof."
The touch of his corpse served to resuscitate a dead man. A year after Elisha's death and burial a body was placed in his grave. As soon as the body touched Elisha's remains the man "revived, and stood up on his feet".en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha It has been said[by whom?], that this dead man was Shallum (son of Tikvah), keeper of the temple-wardrobe in the reign of Josiahen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha and husband of Huldah the prophetess.
