Where the fiery Elijah was a prophet of confrontation, Elisha was a prophet of compassion, and God’s message of deliverance. In reading the story of his service to God, we see him in encounter after encounter with people in need. Elijah’s main purpose seems to have been to confront evil. Elisha does a bit of that as well, but we see him also ministering to the faithful remnant who are suffering because of God’s judgment on the nation of Israel.
"But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Corinthians 15:57
