Pentecostals usually believe that the presence of the Spirit of God in the lives of believers during the Old Testament period was sporadically. The Spirit only occasionally came over someone and then departed again. It was only after the outpouring of God's Spirit on the Day of Pentecost that the Spirit came to dwell permanently within believers. In an article on Psalm 51 a case was made for a permanent indwelling of the Spirit of God in the life of an Old Testament believer. In this article the role of the Spirit of God in the narratives on Elijah and Elisha (1 Kings 17-2 Kings 9) will be analyzed to ascertain whether these narratives support or contradict the conclusions of the article on Psalm 51.
