Elijah Called Down Fire And Roasted 102 Israeli Soldiers Alive But Jesus …. by Daejumong(m): 8:19am On May 19
Elijah called down fire to kill 102 Israeli soldiers who came to arrest him but Jesus rebuked his disciples who tried to do such! Is the God of Elijah different from the God of Jesus Christ?

2 Kings 1:10-12
King James Version
10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.

12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

Will God back the prayers of Elijah to roast 102 men with wives and kids to death ! Men from Israel your country who were just doing their jobs as soldiers ! Men who were ordered by your King to arrest you in order to hear the message you claimed God had given you for the king!
Was your life more special than the 102 soldiers of Israel you wasted because you were sore afraid of seeing the King? Did God love u so much he was ready to make 102 women widows and many kids fatherless in Israel because of your fear?
How do we know Elijah was afraid? He could just have gone to see the king and pass his message without killing 102 well trained Israeli soldiers!
In verse 15-17 , he now does the right thing after needlessly killing the soldiers!

15 The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So Elijah got up and went down with him to the king.
16 He told the king, “This is what the Lord says: Is it because there is no God in Israel for you to consult that you have sent messengers to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Because you have done this, you will never leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!”
17 So he died, according to the word of the Lord that Elijah had spoken.

Let’s contrast this with Jesus and see how he handled a similar situation

Luke 9:54–56. NKJV

54 And when His disciples, James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”
55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.
56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village

The God of Elijah roasted 102 Israeli soldiers alive but Jesus rebuked his disciples who tried to do such ! If God does not change, why the difference in ideology? Could it be they are different?

The God ,Jesus presented to me and other Christians will NEVER support genocide, mass killing or murder! Jesus prayed for his killers’ forgiveness up to the point of his death on the cross! That is the God I serve and will always serve!

Thank you Jesus

That is the difference between Jesus and the other major religion, Jesus came to preach love, spread love and died in the course of doing that despite having all authority to do otherwise, while the other religion is directly opposite what Jesus did, they can kill for the most flimsiest reason embarassed

ELIJAH DID THAT AND SUCCEEDED. THE WORLD CONTINUES.
JOHN THE BAPTIST WOULD HAVE ROASTED HEROD, HERODIAS AND THEIR ESTATE BUT WAITED FOR NETANYAU TO CONTINUE JUSTICE ON HAMAS.
Re: Elijah Called Down Fire And Roasted 102 Israeli Soldiers Alive But Jesus …. by Iamanoited: 8:43am On May 19
THE LORD WILL PUNISH HAMAS AND BOKOHARAMS AND PERISH THEIR WAYS VERY SOON.


ORISA37
UNLESS HAMAS AND BOKOHARAMS REPENT, THE LORD WATCHES OVER THE RIGHTEOUS BUT THE WICKED SHALL PERISH.

This is takyya.

Without Elijah calling down fire against the soldiers, the disciples of Jesus wouldn't know they have such powers. This is Literal. That is why the disciples of Jesus has to make reference to Elijah's fire from heaven.

For surely, Oh Israel, the Lord our God is one. There was no different God of Elijah and another God that Jesus came to share. It is the same God who was, and is and is to come.

He is the same yesterday, today and for ever.

Elisha received double portions of Elijah's anointing according to the scripture. But when Elisha commanded soldiers that came up against Israel to go blind, he spared their lives and even provided them with food to the extent that the nation of Israel became short of food. He declined calls for the soldiers to be killed by his servants. Does that make the God of Elijah different from the God of Elisha? certainly not. Everything that had happened in the scripture are for our instructions and guidance. It is for the believers to know what they have and make their decisions. That is called free will.

Bullshit. The magic Jew is depicted as nothing nore than a cult leader. Maybe a lifetime of indoctrination have blinded most of you but anyone who isn’t brain addled by religion should be able to recognize a cult leader.

Imagine a person saying the following in real life. what do you call such a person other than cult leading scumbag?

Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law ( at least son-in-law and father-in-law will still be friendly under Jesus) grin. And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

The bolded is another evidence that the story of Jesus is wholly fiction. I mean the whole thing is a fairy tale but this phrase in particular is funny because why would he say such a thing before he is crucified and why didn’t any of his cult members ask him wtf it means?

God can kill and can also make alive, he listens to the counsel of his messengers. Jesus cound have done as the prophet did, but his goals were different, he brought grace\mercy, killing the people would have been counter productive to his teachings\goals.

you just want unnecessary arguments, my comment already made it clear that we have one God that has the ability to kill and also make alive.

Oga I am not arguing....if you say we have one God, then it means that it was Jesus that was also killing in the old testament na. Except you are telling me that there are two Gods.

Or don't you believe that Jesus was the God of the isrealites?

Instead of the Europeans telling the Africans that Elijah deployed a ballistic missile that grilled the soldiers to their tooth, they tell Africans that he called fire from heaven.

Africans need to wake up and improve on their technology before they get wiped out of the surface of this planet.

Another nice write-up Daejumong. I don't think Jesus would be happy with those christians and churches that pray for their enemy to die. The Spirit we have is a Spirit of LOVE. The Jesus way of the New Testament is superior to the Elijah way of the Old Testament.
