“Then it came about as they were going along and talking, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them and Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven.” 2 Kings 2:11 Since my childhood, this has always been a fascinating story to me. The old prophet walking along with his protégé Elisha, when suddenly God separated them and took Elijah into heaven. James tell us that, “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours” Jas 5:17, yet miraculously, he did not die. From what is revealed, his soul did not go into Hades or Sheol, he will have no need to be resurrected, nor apparently will he face future judgment. His eternal destiny appears to have been sealed from the here-and-now when God took him from this life directly into heaven. By the way, this also happened to another godly individual — who was the other person?
