Slide 1

In part one of this story, Elisha and his servant found their city surrounded by a small army of Syrian soldiers who had come to capture the prophet. – Slide 1

Slide 2

But God’s unseen army was there too to protect Elisha – a powerful army of fire. – Slide 2

Slide 3

God had revealed His army of fire to Elisha and his servant. It was invisible to everyone else. – Slide 3

Slide 4

As the Syrian army marched towards Elisha’s house, the prophet calmly prayed to the one true God. ‘Lord, make these Syrian soldiers lose their sight.’ – Slide 4

Slide 5

Suddenly the whole Syrian army became blind. They fumbled around, bumping and barging into each other. – Slide 5

Slide 6

They tripped, stumbled and dropped their weapons. ‘Where is the prophet’s house?’ they asked. ‘Where did Elisha go?’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

‘This way! This way!’ Elisha shouted. ‘I know who you are looking for and I will lead you to him. – Slide 7

Slide 8

He walked down to road towards the city of Samaria with the Syrian army stumbling along behind him. It was a long journey and a very strange sight. – Slide 8

Slide 9

The Israelites in Samaria, where the King of Israel lived, were amazed to see the Syrian army being led into their city by Elisha. – Slide 9

Slide 10

Elisha walked through the city gates and then prayed. ‘Lord, please open their eyes so they can see again.’ – Slide 10

Slide 11

At once the enemy soldiers could see and they stared around in amazement. – Slide 11

Slide 12

Then they saw where they were! ‘Help! We are in the city of Samaria, surrounded by Israelites, and we have no weapons.’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

The King of Israel was excited. He had the enemy soldiers just where he wanted them. ‘Shall I kill them?’ he asked Elisha. – Slide 13

Slide 14

‘No,’ Elisha insisted. ‘You didn’t capture them. You didn’t have to fight them.’<br/>‘What shall I do with them then?’ the King asked. – Slide 14

Slide 15

‘Feed them,’ said Elisha. ‘Give them food and drink and show them kindness and mercy. Then send them home.’ – Slide 15

Slide 16

So the King of Israel ordered that all the food in the city be made available to the enemy soldiers. – Slide 16

Slide 17

When the soldiers had eaten and were full they were told they could leave. They left at once and never came back. – Slide 17

Slide 18

Elisha did what Jesus tells Christians: do good to your enemies, be kind to those who mistreat you and show love to those who hate you. – Slide 18
