The Family Altar
“All right,” he said, “I want a double portion of your spirit.” Amen. Don’t be scared to ask. Ask abundantly. “You have not, because you ask not. You ask not, because you believe not.” That’s right. Ask, ask a whole lot. God will give you a whole lot. Have a lot of faith.
A fellow told me the other day; he said, “He was riding an old model-T Ford, yet.” Said, “One day he happened to get some good faith and God give him a Buick.” Said, “I got a Buick faith, I’m—I’m praying for Cadillac faith.” All right. That’s good. That’s right. Keep on. What you believe, hold on to it. God will give it. He’s got Ford faith, so just stay with the Ford then, that’s all right. And so…Let’s get a little more faith. All right.
38 Now, notice. Then he said, “Nevertheless, if you see me go, you’ll have what you ask.” So he walked on. I can see him keeping his eye on that prophet. I can hear something say, “Oh, Elijah, look over this way.”
“No, no, I’m keeping my eye right on Elijah.” So he walked on, a type of the Church and a type of Christ, Christ being the Church, the Elijah, rather. And Elisha was a type of the Church, single.
A woman came to Jesus one time, and said, “Grant that my sons, one will sit on the right hand, and on the left hand.”
He said, “That is not Mine to give. But can you drink the cup that I drink?”
“And can you be baptized with the baptism that I’m baptized with?”
Said, “You truly can. But the right and left hand in not Mine to give.”
39 Now watch. Baptized with the same baptism. Notice. He watched him. After while a chariot of fire come down and parted them, and the old prophet jumped on the chariot and went up in the rapture, as Jesus went up in the resurrection. And when he went up, then as he was going up, he pulled off his coat, and threw it down, and Elisha picked up his coat, put it over his own shoulders, walked down to the Jordan: a very beautiful type of Christ being taken up, baptized with the Holy Ghost. And when He went up into glory, He sent back the Holy Ghost for us to wear. The Church is baptized with the mantle of Christ.
“These things that I do,” a double portion? Yes. What? “These things that I do shall you also, and greater than this will you do, for I go to My Father.” Is that right? A double portion.
Pulled off his mantle and fought, folded it, and let it drop back down on the disciples at Pentecost. And brother, sister, if we’ve got the Pentecostal blessing, then in the Name of the Lord Jesus, let’s walk down there and strike her. Where is the God that was on Jesus Christ? Where is the power of His resurrection? Hallelujah.
