The next verse (six) describes Elisha this time not by name, but as "the man of God". ...

There are several points learned from this story that go beyond the healing that was provided from God through Elisha. Naaman was a very important man. He was the supreme commander of the army of Syria, a great man of high social standing. He was highl...

“And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, "Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored, and you shall be clean." 2 Kings 5:10 I really enjoyed reading this account of Naaman’s way to God.

Battle for the Heart…

Walk with Jesus

A version of the story goes…Robert the 17th Earl of Bruce (the very one that betrayed William Wallace on the field of battle), as you know picked up where William left off after Wallace’s life was dispatched. When Robert was close to death he made one of his trusted men cut out his heart to carry it with his army when they were engaged on the field of battle! ...
