Elisha was a young man who worked hard on his father's farm. When the prophet Elijah visited Elisha and told him that he would serve as the new prophet of Israel, Elisha, being obedient to God, left the farm to follow Elijah.
Elisha doubted that he would ever be able to take his teacher's place and thus asked for a double portion of Elijah's spirit, which he promised to his student if Elisha witnessed him being taken into heaven in a chariot of fire. After the fiery chariot took Elijah to heaven, his powerful covering fell upon his frightened protege, Elisha. Once the prophet Elisha re-crossed the Jordan River, he gained recognition from the prophets at Jericho as truly having "the spirit of the Lord."
And so begins his days as the next great Prophet of the Lord, performing miracles (including the healing of Naaman the leper) and spreading God's awesome love!
