“Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”
The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.”
>So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram.
He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Will you not tell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”
“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”
“Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.”
The report came back: “He is in Dothan.”
Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city, (2 Kings 6:8-14).
Daniel 11:32 says, “But those who know their God will be strong and do great exploits.”
“Do you hear the wind blowing? For a great wind is coming. This is not a wind of destruction. For it is the wind of my Holy Spirit. It is coming to give hope to My people. For you have heard of the things that are coming.
You have heard of the destruction that will come. And yet, with these things that are coming, I want you to know that I will blow courage into your lives. For this will be the time of great exploits of me.
This is the time that you will grab a hold of that wily serpent, and you will throw him to the ground. For you will go out and I will cause you to triumpth over your enemies. For you will roar like a lion. And my wisdom will shine down from above, and it will confound all.
For in these last days I AM unleashing my gifts. I have said that the latter house would be greater than the former one.
For you will run and not be weary. And those with eyes to see, those with the eyes of my prophets, will see into the enemy’s camp. I will tell you things that are coming.
I have been saying them through my prophets, but my revelation knowledge will increase.”
