Hi I’m Tim,

This site is dedicated to exploring the concept of spiritual sonship. It is named the Elisha Principle because the post are inspired by the relationship between Elisha and Elijah which is found in 1 Kings 19 and 2 Kings 2. Although I use that particular relationship pretty heavily, the relational principle is found throughout scripture including the relationships between Moses and Joshua, David and Solomon, Ruth and Naomi, Paul and Timothy, and Jesus and His disciples. I have learned a lot about the subject of spiritual adoption, which I will share here, but there is so much more to know. This blog is part of my personal quest to dig deeper.

On this blog you will also find my thoughts on spiritual matters concerning the Black community. I am passionate about doing whatever I can to help bring revival to this part of the Body of Christ. In fact, my hope and most desperate prayer is that revival would break through to the Black community because there is not another culture in America that encapsulates the phrase “orphan spirit” than us. Although the statistics about marriage, abortions, poverty, and abandonment are disturbing, I believe and am contending for revival.

Whether you are black or white, male or female, we all have something to learn from one another. I hope this site will bless you and start a conversation.

Thanks for visiting.

    • I’ll get one out to you ASAP. By the way I’ve started reading your book, “Crazy Woman Creek” I’m only two chapters in, but I’m liking what I read.

  1. Hi Tim,
    I just finished “The Elisha Principle” and I just wanted to say thank you! Your book, though geared more toward son and fathers, made me rethink the legacy I’m leaving to my children as a single mother. It also made me rethink my life relationally. I know there are some things a mother cannot give but I’m trusting that God will provide spiritual fathers within our church. They’ve already seen and commented on the differences they see in the men at church and the men they know as family which give me hope for their future. Thank you for your transparency in not making the best decisions in your life. It was refreshing to read something that I could relate to in my own life. I’m patiently awaiting the next two books…. πŸ™‚ Blessings to you and your family. Rhonda Chappell
