Violent mobs of lawless young men from the cities of the USA are in the news. Elisha was met by a similar mob of young men from the apostate city of Bethel. These young men were lawless God-rejecters who followed the manmade religion of Israel. They were making fun of the prophet of God and the translation of Elijah. They are predecessors of present-day lawless mockers who make fun of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and His judgment of sin.
2 Kings 2:23-25 The Return of Elisha to Bethel after the Translation of Elijah
Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, "Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!" When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
2 Peter 3:3-7 The Mockers of Today
Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation." For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
The curse of God is as real as God's sunshine. The Lord Jesus came, He was made a curse for you on the cross, he went up to heaven, and He is returning as King and Judge. Your curse on you or your curse on the Lord Jesus? You make the choice.
For me to live is Christ.
