A Double Portion of Anointing

It would be difficult to understand and appreciate what a double portion of the spirit of God represents if you don’t understand the effectiveness of the measure of anointing of God upon Elijah. Elijah the Tishbite, popularly known as the Prophet of Fire was not known before. Nobody knew how and when he was anointed as a prophet of God. His prophecy was not known or reported in the Bible before he made an unheralded appearance before the idolatrous King Ahab to prophesy a prolonged drought in Israel.
