Little is known about Elijah, one of the greatest prophets who ever lived, and one of only two men who never died. Instead translated and carried up to Heaven in a fiery chariot. Yet before his miraculous departure, Elijah left something behind that every believer can learn from: a lifestyle of unshakable faith. From the time Elijah bursts onto the scene, we see his faith stop and start rain, his words warn unbelieving kings, and his prayers call down fire on false prophets—all with the Lord guiding his every move and his every word. So tangible was the Lord’s anointing on Elijah’s life and ministry that Elisha asked for a double portion of his spirit, which he received when he saw Elijah translated. Yet the story of Elijah does not end in the Old Testament; the Lord will send him back to earth during the great tribulation to once again preach the gospel as the great prophet he was and is.
