Veith - 265: A Double Portion | Clash of Minds (DVD)Walter Veith
The stories of God’s interaction with His people in the days of Elijah and Elisha are full of lessons and warnings for those who are entrusted with the Elijah message in these last days. What can we learn from these stories?
What does it mean to receive a double portion? In this video, Pastor Walter Veith explores the story of Elisha’s request to receive a double portion of Elijah’s spirit. When we hear God’s call, will we reject it because it involves menial, common tasks? Will we go away sorrowful, as the rich young ruler did when Christ called him to leave everything and follow Him? Or will we accept the call and cling to it as Elisha did?
In the early rain experience of Adventist history, 50 000 Christians joined the Millerite movement. But after the shaking, only 50 remained. Will the Adventist church in our day experience a similar result? How can we prepare to withstand the shaking? The pillars of Adventism must be maintained and we must plead for a double portion of the Spirit to meet the crisis that is just ahead of us.
