Name means: "Yahweh is my God"
AKA: Elijah the Tishbite; fastest man on earth
Startling facts: He raised the dead, brought fire down from the sky on numerous occasions, outraced a chariot, and never actually died! (Read 1 Kings 17:21–22; 2 Kings 1:10; 1 Kings 18:44–46; 2 Kings 2:11.)
Did you know? Elijah’s preordained trip to heaven was known by 50 of the prophets who lived in Bethel and Jericho. Knowing about Elijah’s appointment with God, these onlookers gathered by the River Jordan to watch this spectacular event. (Read about it: 2 Kings 2.)
Coolest trait: A man of conviction and integrity, he liked to challenge those who defied God.
You can too: Expect miracles through the power of God.
