When the king discovered it was Elijah who told him he would surely die - he sent 50 soldiers to fetch him.

Instead of going with them - he responded, saying - if I'm a man of God - let fire come down and consume thee and thy 50, and they were consumed by fire from heaven:

----

2 Kings 1:7 And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?

8 And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.

9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.

10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


The king repeated this action with the same results:

2 Kings 1:11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.

12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


Ahaziah was a foolish king - never realizing no matter what he did, was not going to change the fact that he was going to die.

So he sent another fifty - but this time the captain knew to acknowledge the power of God, and begged for his life and the life of his men; and their lives were spared:


2 Kings 1:13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.

14 Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


This time however, Elijah was told to go with the captain:

2 Kings 1:15 And the angel of the Lord said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


When Elijah met with the king - he reiterated his death sentence:

2 Kings 1:16 And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.

And of course he died - because God decreed it:

2 Kings 1:17 So he died according to the word of the Lord which Elijah had spoken.

I say next to the last - because even though he is taken to heaven alive, we're told he'll return before the great tribulation.

What can we expect as we race towards Jesus returning to this earth?

The Spirit of Elijah and Prophetic Ministry at the End of the Age

Small excerpt:

As nations increasingly come to the brink of national judgments and the earth as a whole races towards the Day of the Lord, the ultimate judgment of which all previous judgments have foreshadowed, God will again flood the earth with prophets of the same stature as those recorded for us in the Old Testament.

This time one of the most significant differences will be that the prophets that are coming will not be confined to Israel but will be sent to every nation of the earth. In time past, Israel alone carried the mysteries of God when prophets were sent.

We are living in a time period where the gospel is being proclaimed to every nation on earth.

Every nation has been brought into the revelation that was given to Israel and therefore every nation will be held accountable to this revelation by a company of prophets.

Prophets will not just be sent to Israel at the end of the age, but to the nations of the earth. This will be a unique prophetic ministry that will be given because of the unique dynamics of the end of the age.

News traveled fast - everywhere Elijah and Elisha went - the prophets asked Elisha if he knew his master was to be taken into heaven that day.

And Elisha each time told them he did:

2 King 2:2 And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the Lord hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.

3 And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.

4 And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the Lord hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho.

5 And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.

Elijahs last stop would be Jordan - and 50 prophets gathered to watch his ascension into heaven:

When he saw the chariot of fire, and horses of fire take Elijah to heaven, it's interesting that Elisha cried chariot of Israel, and made a reference to the horsemen.

2 Kings 2:12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof...
 Quoting: b4its2l8


Zechariah 6:1 And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots [with horses) out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.

4 Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord?

5 And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


Elijah rose up out of sight - and Elisha mourned his loss:

2 Kings 2:12 ...And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


And the mantle was passed on to Elisha:

2 Kings 2:13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him
 Quoting: b4its2l8


Notice the words 'took up' in 2 Kings 2:13 - (Synonym: Take on)

The first time I mentioned Elisha's receiving the mantle - I said he was replacing Elijah.

Of course, there is no way Elisha could replace him.

But he was now taking over the role of Elijah as one of the Lord's prophets.

This is true.

Elisha gave in to this, but they never found a body:

16 And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the Lord hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send.

17 And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not.

Naturally, there will be those who say that's not so.

He didn't appear physically - but spiritually:

Small Excerpt:

Nothing about John would indicate that he was Elijah. Elijah had physically ascended "into heaven" in a "chariot of fire." And, everyone believed that the same Elijah who had disappeared into heaven was himself, personally going to return... possibly even in the same "chariot of fire" that he had used when he ascended up into heaven.

In what way could John the Baptist have been the return of Elijah? Certainly not literally. This apparent contradiction can be resolved by a statement made at the beginning of the Gospel of Luke where it explains that John went

"on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah." -Luke 1:17 (KJV)

Elijah had returned from heaven in the "spirit". John went "on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah."-Luke 1:17 (KJV) Viewed this way, both John and Jesus were right. The man named Elijah who had lived eight hundred years earlier had not literally, physically returned from heaven in the flesh as just about everyone expected. Instead, the fulfillment of the 'return of Elijah from heaven' prophecy had nothing to do with Elijah's physical body. It was the return of the same "spirit and power" of God that had animated Elijah eight hundred years earlier that had returned to also animate John the Baptist. The reality of Elijah's return was the appearance of yet another totally separate and distinct Prophet of God. (Yes, Jesus did refer to John as a Prophet.) This is the true meaning of "the return."...

People for 2000 years have been incorrectly saying Jesus would return, or it's already happened.

Well - it couldn't have happened because the technology didn't exist. Until Now!!

You couldn't see something happening on the other side of the world - this passage below makes no sense to anyone living in Jesus time.

Only we today can understand the technology it takes for this to happen (Dan 12-Knowledge will increase):

Rev 13:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall SEE their dead bodies three and an half days lie in the street. (KJV)

This says other people from other nations will SEE their dead bodies in the street.

The tech didn't exist for people to be in a FIELD or someone on a ROOF and both 'simultaneously' seeing something they should act on i.e. the antichrist STANDING in the temple.

Math 24:15 When ye therefore shall SEE the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

Question is - How are you going to SEE the antichrist stand in the temple from a field or rooftop without a mobile device?

Another question - when did we ever see anyone standing in the temple declaring he is god? (2 Thess 2)

Never!!
