Elijah The Prophet
Beyond Elijah being taken up in a chariot, or a whirlwind I always get that confused, there is not much information beyond this. To say ELijah is in heaven or that he is dead or that he was given a new body is speculation, at best. We are told that the spiritual form of ELijah met Christ at the Mt. of Transfiguration but, that still does not tell us where Elijah is today or in what form he is in. The most definitive answer available is: God has it all figured out so let's not worry about it.

Earl, are you sure your name is not doubting Thomas. Did you not read in the bible that Thomas felt the wounds of the nails in the hands of Jesus Christ and thrust his hand into the wound in His side. perhaps your bible is missing those verses. The apostles felt the wounds too. It never ceases to amaze me what people say to dispute truths and promote their own fallacies.

earl...you said no nail scars or wounds. Please read John 20:20-29. Thank you.

Elijah the prophet did not die? True.
Are there any other prophets that have not died? Enoch.
Where are they now? Under the Fathers protection & care.
Did Elijah get his glorified body before the rest of the us? No.
I believe Enoch & Elijah has been reserved by The Father as His designated end time witnesses. They are preserved & destined to die & rise in the sight of man in fulfillment of prophecy.

greetings.dave.Resurections are very confusing for most.Jesus'form that he returned in appears to most all he was carbon based,based on the conversation he had with Thomas.Mark's narrative gives another story,"in another form".Carbon based bodies cannot suddenly appear or dissappear.Based on biblical only information the jury is still out.Based on spiritual insight,there were no nail scars or wounds on Jesus' form as he appeared to Thomas.Imperfections cannot be found on perfection

Jack, where in the world do you get your dillusions. Did Jesus himself not let the apostles touch His hands and feet and know that He had indeed been resurrected from the dead? He said a spirit does not have a body of flesh and bones as He now has. To make your comment that flesh and bones do not return to God's kingdom denies the resurrection. The reuniting of our spirit and body. It is written our bodies are changed from mortal to immortal.

Jack: could you please stop using the word "DUA"? You make it seem like people's questions and responses are stupid. It is rude and very uncalled for. You can still respond but without making fun of people. :))

Where did you get the idea that Elijah was a Christian prophet? DUH!
He was a JEW!
Elijah was apparently translated without seeing death, as was Enoch. They are the two witnesses in the Book of Revelation, and only after death do they get their glorified bodies. (Remember, flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.)

Elijah didn't die, God took him in a whirlwind. Enoch is the other person that hasn't seen death. I don't know where they are now. but they have to come back to earth, to be the two witnesses the book of Revelations talks about. The bible says all are apointed to die once. Elijah hasn't gotten his glorified body yet.
