Romans 6. The three most important truths are: “Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.“ and “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
2 Kings 5. Naaman’s Leprosy is Healed. This was so important that Jesus mentioned it to the self righteous Jews, proving they were not that special. Elisha refused payment for healing Naaman, but his servant Gehazi accepted payment instead, so he becme leprous instead of Naaman.
2 Kings 6. Elisha makes an ax head float, The Floating Ax Head, the Syrians ary to capture Elisha from which we ger the quote”Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” But then Syria Besieged Samaria with famine.
2 Kings 7. When the siege was about to succeed Elisha prophesied “Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.” During the night the Syrians fled and four lepers discovered it. After feasting they went and told the good news to the besieged.
