Elisha was a prophet in Israel. Naaman, the Syrian King’s army commander, came to Elisha on recommendation to be cured of leprosy. Naaman was still at the gate when Elisha sent a servant to tell Naaman to move to River Jordan and dip himself seven times. Naaman was annoyed because he thought Elisha would perform an instant miracle. What happened? He obeyed and was healed totally of his long term sickness. He came back to the prophet with plenty of gifts in appreciation of his healing, which the prophet declined to receive. This was the point where the devil tempted Gehazi (prophet servant). He could not withstand the urge to possess these precious items,as a result, he went after Naaman. Funny enough, on meeting Naaman, Gehazi’s told him that the prophet had changed his mind and now needed those precious gifts. (2 Kings 5:22). Nobody was to name his child Gehazi, why? Because Gehazi was a big thief. Gehazi was a lier. Gehazi was a devil advocate. Gehazi took possession of those gifts and craftily hid them in the house. Not knowing that God has revealed everything to Elisha. Without talking too much, Elisha proclaimed Gehazi’s punishment. What happened? Naaman’s leprosy came upon Gehazi… (2 Kings 5:26-27)
