R.T. Kendall illuminates the life of the prophet Elisha and his ministry to provide insight to Spirit-empowered living

Lake Mary, FL— Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Trusted Theologian, R.T. Kendall’s newest and perhaps most intriguing book, Double Anointing: Lessons to be Learned From Elisha (Charisma House, ISBN-13: 978-1-63641-124-8), examines the life of the prophet Elisha, a man who asked for and received a double portion of the prophet Elijah’s anointing, and offers distilled wisdom about both the obstacles and victories Elisha experienced through his abundant anointing. Double Anointing is an encouraging guide for readers who want a deeper, scripture-based understanding of what it means to experience the Spirit-empowered life.

“It’s a book about the man and his miracles,” says Kendall, describing Double Anointing. “Gift does matter, but character does too. And the thing about Elisha as a man is extraordinary, and this comes through. So, it’s a book about the importance of gift and character.”

Kendall opens by illuminating the unique way Elisha received his double anointing—as Elijah’s successor, he received a double portion of the quantity of miracles Elijah performed. “Now Elijah, as far as we can tell, performed seven miracles. Elisha, fourteen,” Kendall explains.

Readers are guided by Kendall through the extraordinary life and miraculous workings of the prophet Elisha to reveal what a life of blessing looks like. The discovery and expression by Elisha of his unique calling provide a framework to transport the Christian to the next level in their journey with God as they learn, “the anointing is the power of the Holy Spirit that enables one’s gift to function with ease. The anointing is what comes easy. If you go outside your anointing, you struggle. Stay within it, and you are at ease.”

Beyond Elisha’s favor with the miraculous, Kendall notes that Elisha was known for his character and integrity. He was a man who came from obscurity. He did not come from one of the prophetic schools or from prophetic heritage. But this prophet was a loyal follower of his Creator, which Kendall believes is critical for understanding Elisha’s double portion life.

“He was a man who pleased God, and a man who died pleasing the heavenly Father,” Kendall says. “There was nothing supernatural about him. He was very ordinary. Yet we are about to discover, through the life of the prophet Elisha, how God can take the ordinary and do something extraordinary,” he adds.

With wisdom and practical application, Kendall examines the triumphs and failings of the prophet Elisha, showing readers what happens to the man who dares to ask God for more – and what God can do through an ordinary person who allows the Spirit of God to make him great.
