Welcome to Being Deliberate With Mayokun Oreofe. DID YOU NOTICE, WE HAVE 5 WEEKS IN THIS 5TH MONTH OF THE YEAR? WOW! I CALL THIS DOUBLE GRACE! 

This is our 5th Episode on FOLLOWERSHIP. TODAY AM CONTINUING FROM WHERE I STOPPED LAST WEEK, BY TAKING US TO SEE  ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A PROVEN FOLLOWER AND THE OUTCOME ON HIS  LIFE.

### Uncle Elisha Who Followed Prophet Elijah. 

>‭‭I Kgs.‬ ‭19:19-21 (NKJV‬‬)==>19)“So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. 20)And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” 21)So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen’s equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant.”

‭‭

>II Kgs.‬ ‭2:1-15‬ ‭(NKJV‬‬)==>1)“And it came to pass, when the LORD was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. 2)Then Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here, please, for the LORD has sent me on to Bethel.” But Elisha said, “ As the LORD lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So they went down to Bethel. 3)Now the sons of the prophets who were at Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that the LORD will take away your master from over you today?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent!” 4)Then Elijah said to him, “Elisha, stay here, please, for the LORD has sent me on to Jericho.” But he said, “ As the LORD lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So they came to Jericho. 5)Now the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came to Elisha and said to him, “Do you know that the LORD will take away your master from over you today?” So he answered, “Yes, I know; keep silent!” 6)Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here, please, for the LORD has sent me on to the Jordan.” But he said, “ As the LORD lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So the two of them went on. 7)And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went and stood facing them at a distance, while the two of them stood by the Jordan. 8)Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground. 9)And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” 10)So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so. ” 11)Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12)And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them into two pieces. 13)He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14)Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, “Where is the LORD God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over. 15)Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Jericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” And they came to meet him, and bowed to the ground before him.”

***EVERY “HEART” CONNECTED FOLLOWER ENDS UP BEING MADE INTO GOD’S ORIGINAL INTENT FOR THEIR LIVES. 

I LOVE THE STORY OF ELISHA AND ELIJAH. 

DESPITE ALL THE DISTRACTION FROM OTHER ACCLAIMED FOLLOWERS/DISCIPLES, ELISHA PRESSED ON FOLLOWING. EVEN WHEN HIS LEADER(ELIJAH URGED HIM TO TURN BACK), ELISHA WAS SO SPIRITUALLY SENSITIVE IN THIS RELATIONSHIP. AND AT LAST HE GOT THE MANTLE. 

*** I WANT YOU TO KNOW ITS NOT EVERY ONE IN THE COMPANY OF A LEADER THAT IS TRULY FOLLOWING. TRUE FOLLOWERSHIP IS A MATTER OF THE HEART AND NOT THE HEAD. 

*** HE FOLLOWED TILL HE WAS MADE. HE GOT THE MANTLE. HE BECAME THE PROPHET OF HIS TIME, NOT JUST A PART OF THE NO, BUT THE MAIN!!!

Beloved I pray for You, THAT YOU WILL BECOME! YOU WILL NOT JUST HIDE IN THE MULTITUDE. MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU TENACITY TO FOLLOW AND MAY YOU BECOME THE ORDAINED YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. YOU WILL NOT DIE IN THE SHADOW OF ANYONE NOT EVEN THE SHADOW OF YOURSELF, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. 

Thank you for viewing, I am eagerly looking forward to next because by then we’d be in the 6th month. As we count the months, let us set our heart to Wisdom==> SEE YOU NEXT MONTH. Pls share this video. GOD BLESS YOU.
