‘... if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee ...’

John 1:22

‘They said therefore to him, “... What sayest thou of thyself?”

This question was put to John the Baptist by a delegation sent from the Jewish hierarchy in Jerusalem – “What sayest thou of thyself?” It’s a good question for all men and women to answer. The responses, no doubt, would be varied. Jesus spoke about two men who went up to the temple to pray, the one a religious Pharisee, and the other a despised  tax collector. “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.  And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.” – One of them gave an honest evaluation of himself, whereas the other deceived himself. Self-deception is the worst type of deception!








Elijah’s ministry was soon to end and it would end in dramatic fashion! He was to be taken up alive into heaven by a whirlwind ‘from over the head of Elisha’ who was his attendant and successor. Before departing, Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away.” Elisha responded with, “Let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.” The request was to be granted with one proviso – ‘If thou SEE me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee.’ One can well imagine how the eyes of Elisha would be constantly fixed on his master. Where Elijah went, Elisha would go. He would never be out of his sight. The Lord Jesus said, “Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find WATCHING: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.” – Luke 12:37
2 Kings 2:10
