Elisha – Pt 4: God Is In Control – 2 Kings 8-9

There are three features we will discover in today’s message.  First, God is in control and is sovereign over all nations and governments.  Despite the evil we see unfolding in the world, God still has His hand on the steering wheel of history.  Second, God is faithful to His Word, even if a great deal of time passes. He does not forget His promises.  Third, God will reward the righteous and punish the wicked.  Don’t ever think for one minute that the wicked acts of the unrighteous will go unpunished.  Though time may pass, God does not forget.  They will meet their end, and it will not be pleasant.

Let’s visit the headlines of the past so we might understand the workings of God today.
