BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 23, 1 Chronicles 24, 1 Chronicles 25, Mark 3, Mark 4

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Kings 5:20-27

20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, as the LORD liveth, I will run after him, and take somewhat of him.
21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, Is all well?
22 And he said, All is well. My master hath sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come to me from mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of garments.
23 And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him.
24 And when he came to the tower, he took them from their hand, and bestowed them in the house: and he let the men go, and they departed.
25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.
26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?
27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.

Today, we want to look at another covetous young man – Gehazi. Gehazi was a servant of Elisha, one of the greatest prophets in the Bible. Thus, opportunities abound for him to receive the mantle of Elisha. Elisha served Elijah and received the double portion of his power. If Gehazi had served Elisha well, he too could have received a quantum dimension of the power of Elijah. However, covetousness got the better part of this young man and he ended up a leprous man. Elisha went from the presence of Elijah, a powerful prophet but Gehazi went from the presence of Elisha a leprous fellow. Beware of covet0usness!

In 2 Kings 5:15-16, Namaan who had been cleansed of leprosy brought some gifts to Elisha, but the man of God refused it. This did n0t g0 Well with Gehazi. He ran after Naaman to collect a talent of silver and two changes of garments. We never read where he ran after God to know Him better but he ran after Naaman. He never ran after Elisha to get power, but he ran after Naaman to collect the gifts of leprosy. He threw caution to the wind, and left the substance to pursue the shadows. What a purposeless life! He did not understand that there are times to take gifts and there are times to reject gifts. To Gehazi, every gift is a blessing and must be collected. May we not collect trouble wrapped as a gift in the name of Jesus.

No wonder, when Elisha gave him his staff in 2 Kings 4:29 to go and perform a miracle with it, the staff of p0wer refused to work in Gehazi’s hands because his hands had been bewitched at the altar of covetousness. You cannot be holding onto the devil’s property and expect the rod of God to prosper in your hands. Beware 0f c0vetousness! It is an expressway to Iepr0sy. Gehazi got the reward of leprosy not just for himself but for his seed forever. He brought generational curse and leprosy on his descendants.

Covetousness is a tragedy. Avoid it like a plague. Be content with what you have while hoping for a better life from God. Godliness with contentment is a great gain. With contentment comes peace of mind.


1. Arrow of covetousness fired to finish me up, you are a liar, jump out of me and die, in the name of Jesus.
2. Inordinate love for money, die to your root, in the name of Jesus.
3. Spirit of Gehazi on assignment to rubbish my calling, I am not your candidate, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.

4. You my hands, reject bewitchment, in the name of Jesus.
5. Powers distracting me to leave the substance to chase the shadows, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. P0wers 0n assignment to derail me, you are a liar, receive the leprosy of Naaman n0w, in the name of Jesus.
7. By fire, by force, I receive a quantum leap in the spirit, I walk into my new dimension of God’s power, in the name of Jesus.
