Dr. Pierre Bennett first heard God’s word as a young boy in church, listening to his mother sing in the choir. As he got older, Dr. Pierre Bennett once again found himself in a church, listening to the Word. After founding God’s Luv International Ministries Church in 2008, Dr. Pierre Bennett was ordained as an apostle in 2009.
Dr. Pierre Bennett believes the spirit of God is progressive. As an example, Dr. Pierre Bennett recalls the story of Elisha, who was supposed to do 66 miracles. Unfortunately, Elisha only worked 65 miracles before he died.
Elisha was a prophet who became the attendant disciple of Elijah. As Dr. Pierre Bennett explains, Elijah died, leaving Elisha as his successor who was well-respected in Israel. According to Dr. Pierre Bennett, Elijah had been given 33 miracles to perform. Because Elisha asked for a double portion, he was given 66 miracles, Dr. Pierre Bennett states. Because God is progressive, He always takes it to the next level.
When Elijah died he had only performed 65 miracles,. But God always gets the glory, Dr. Pierre Bennett reminds us, and everything is within God’s plan. That is why it is so important that we’re always open and honest with Him, Dr. Pierre Bennett explains.
They buried Elisha in a tomb, according to Dr. Pierre Bennett. But later, as they were about to bury another man, they spied approaching troops. Panicking, they quickly put the man in Elisha’s tomb in order to hide the body. The plan, Dr. Pierre Bennett says, was to come back and remove him once the enemy army had departed, but the body they were burying touched Elisha’s skeletal remains. That was when something amazing happened and God worked the 66th miracle for Elisha.
As Dr. Pierre Bennett recites, the man they were burying suddenly came to life. After touching Elisha, the man of 65 miracles, a dead man came back to life and stood up.
So while Elisha didn’t quite make it to 66 miracles while he was alive, Dr. Pierre Bennett points out that a 66th miracle happened after his death. According to Dr. Pierre Bennett, while Elisha may have died, the spirit of God was still alive. That 66th miracle was the work of God, who will always have his way. He will work miracles.
