Mandate for Double

One very noticeable reason in scripture for poor or no access to receiving double mandate is  "BAD FOLLOWER-SHIP"
The quest for gain and recognition from the prestige of association is what has bedeviled the concept of following.
The search and quest to know the Spirit by which people operate and to make contacts with it is not the main focus of followers today, unlike the days of old.
see2Kings 2:3. The sons of the prophet drawing the attention of Elisha on the fact that his master will be 'TAKEN AWAY FROM [him] TODAY', I believe was a message of alertness so he can make all the demands he had to make from his master. In all these instances,  Elisha did not act so.
When it became necessary for him for him to demand,  he requested the Spirit of his master and more so a double. Wow!
See2Cor 5:16 Know no man after the flesh. Another scripture says
"for the flesh profiteth nothing" John 6:63
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH A FOLLOWER WHO CANNOT AT A POINT DO SOMETHING IN RESEMBLANCE TO WHAT THEIR LEADER DO.
-The problem is this,  IF YOU FOLLOW ME AND YOU DON'T CARRY/SEEK MY SPIRIT,  YOU CANNOT OPERATE WITH MY MANTLE. IT WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU.
Ask Gehazi if you don't trust me.
The SPIRIT of a MAN leads you to HIS GOD. The MANTLE of a MAN points to HIS WORKS. However,  mantles are powered by the Spirit. NO MANTLE IS SELF SUFFICIENT, SELF FUNCTIONAL AND SELF ABLE.
By seeRomans 8:16, What bears witness or testifies that we are sons of God is not WORKS. It is the SPIRIT.
LET ME DARE SAY THIS...
Not even service is enough reason to qualify FOLLOWING, if it is not with the intent of catching the Spirit of your master or leader other than that forget it,  it will not bless you well. You are wasting your time. The reason is because the one you are serving will expire one day but not his Spirit.
Elisha recognised the GOD OF ELIJAH and not ELIJAH when he demanded the his Spirit. It led Him to discover the GOD of Elijah and that
powered the Mantle to function.
See2Kings 4:30 We are not told of what
Gehazi said when he laid the staff of his master Elisha on the child as directed by his leader but taking inspiration from his character evidenced from his early actions. (2Kings 5:20-23) It's possible he was interested In Working the works of his master without the Spirit of his master. So he missed out on what powers the mantle (In this case,  the rod).
Spirit of a man is fully activated on a follower who is ready to go the full length with him. Such Followers don't quit like that. They follow to the Jordan. They don't look from far and say let's see how he will make it through. They just trust their leader or master has the capacity and backing to perform it. see2Kings 2:7
