Today we are continuing in Romans, and starting with two chapters in 2 Kings.
Romans 4. Abraham was justified by faith, not works and definitely not circumcision. Where there is no law, there is no transgression. Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed, and it was credited to him as righteousness. And “for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”
2 Kings 1. God Judged Ahaziah. Elijah the prophet delivered the messages from God, and so Ahaziah died, left no heir, so Joram, son of Ahab became king.
2 Kings 2, Elijah is taken up to heaven, Elisha asks for a double portion of Elijah’s spirit, and gets it, because he witnessed Elijah’s ascension.
