The Vibe of Elijah and Elisha

Elijah has a superhuman vibe. He is the uberprophet. Fed by ravens and protected by a foreign widow, he bursts onto the scene with a head to head face off between God and the pagan idol, Baal. God wins and Elijah is chased off by Queen Jezebel who is Baal’s biggest supporter. He hides in a cave where angels feed him and after a storm, an earthquake and a fire, God whispers to him that he has chosen Elisha to carry on his work. Elijah sticks around long enough to give Israel’s evil king Ahab a ticking off for killing a man for his vineyard, and to tell Ahab’s son he will die for worshipping idols. He dies in flamboyant style - taken up to Heaven in a whirlwind. Elisha carries on Elijah's good work in businesslike fashion and performs lots of miracles, a vibe appreciated by Israel's kings. He saves Israel from defeat by the Assyrians, gets rid of Baal worship, sees Ahab and Jezebel’s reign end in ruin and cures the captain of the enemy Assyrian army of leprosy. God’s vibes are now appreciated by Israel’s enemies and the message is bold – God is for everyone.
