Elisha and the Waters

I want to share this scripture that I read last night.

He also took up the mantle of Eliyah that had fallen from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. Then he took the mantle of Eliyah that had fallen from him and struck the water and said, ‘where is Yah, The Power of Eliyah’? And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that and Elisha crossed over. Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Jericho saw  him, they said, ‘the spirit of Eliyah rests on Elisha’. And they came to meet him and bowed to the ground before him.  2 Kings 2:13-15

They recognized that Yah had put Elisha in a leadership position when they saw those waters move. Yah says He does this to exalt the leaders of Ysrayl in Joshua 3:7. Read Exodus 14, Joshua 3, 2 Esdras 13:39-50, 4 Ezra 13:40-50 and Yesiyah 11:11-16 about Yah troubling the waters.
