ELIJAH: My God is Jehovah. Elijah was one of the greatest prophets of the Old Testament. He prophesied during the reign of Ahab. Elijah performed many miracles including restoring a widow's dead son to life. Elijah did not die, but was taken directly to heaven in a chariot of fire. Elisha was the successor of Elijah.
Elijah goes up in a whirlwind 2 Kings 2:11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.
Elisha witnessed the ascent of Elijah into the heavens before becoming his successor. Elisha continued the works and miracles of Elijah for the remainder of his life; he continually prophesized to the kingdom of Israel about their future destruction and captivity.
