For Carmelites, Elijah is considered their legendary founder and patron. This study explores Elijah in Scripture, legend, and Carmelite documents. Members of the three monotheistic faiths have always told stories of what the prophet Elijah has done and is still expected to do in sacred history. He is perhaps most appreciated by members of the Carmelite Order, known for its contemplative and pastoral orientation. Elijah is considered their legendary founder and traditional patron. Carmelites rank him as one of their greatest spiritual models. Their coat of arms displays his flaming sword, Mount Carmel, and Elijah's proclamation, "With zeal I have been zealous for the Lord God of Hosts." This book inquires into this deep appreciation. It examines the linkage between the Order and the prophet over time. More Information Beginning with the oldest knowledge we have about Elijah, coming from Scripture, Elijah Prophet of Carmel briefly sketches his role in the three faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It then turns to what the distant, but influential, Christian antecedents of the Carmelite Order, the desert hermits and the early Fathers, wrote about the zealous man of God. As the Carmelite Order was founded, achieved its corporate identity, and changed over time, so did its views of its legendary model. Interaction between storytelling about Elijah and Carmelites' understanding of themselves continues even to the present. As thoughts from the past about the prophet continue to influence them, both Teresian Carmelites and Carmelites of the Ancient Observance of our times are developing a brand-new tradition of him, the tradition of Elijah's double charism.

Elijah the Prophet is one of the most popular and beloved figures in all of Jewish literature. Both as a biblical prophet and a folklore hero, Elijah has fascinated Jews all over the world for centuries. He has served in many different roles, offering guidance on how to live Like a mensch, bringing hope, reconciling family members, rewarding goodness while punishing wickedness, rescuing Jewish communities and worthy individuals, seeing that justice prevails, and signaling the coming of the Messiah. Tales of Elijah the Prophet is a brilliant collection of thirty-seven stories selected by the gifted storyteller, Peninnah Schram. In these intriguing tales, we see Elijah as the master of miracles. His chameleon-like disguises are marvelously clever and numerous, using such diverse poses as an old man, a traveler, a matchmaker, a magician, a slave, and even a handsome horseman. He uses these disguises to heighten suspense and fantasy, to test people's behavior, to restore faith, and to bring about a happy resolution to the problems in the story. The tales in this wonder-filled volume cover a range of themes and types of Elijah tales. All are miracle stories, but they vary greatly in mood, character, plot, locale, time, and theme. There are religious stories focusing on restoring faith in God and humorous tales that emphasize resourcefulness. Other stories involve Passover, love, and riddle themes. Peninnah Schram chose thirty-six of these stories, using the Jewish symbolic number of twice eighteen (chai), which is the Hebrew equivalent to "life." And since it is the Jewish custom to add one to a number, perhaps to ensure good luck, she included her favorite story, Elijah and the Three Wishes, in the Introduction. In addition to the stories in Tales of Elijah the Prophet, this volume includes an informative introduction to the character of Elijah the Prophet that explores his various roles in Jewish life and literature. There are also extensive notes to each story, indicating sources a

Revelation 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. Revelation 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angels hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. Here is the mystery of God, where He will train an angel to write about the seven thunders in modern times or fear. Fear is the beginning of all wisdom (knowledge), yet we have to reach for, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. How can a book result in my mouth sweet as honey when I speak and my belly was bitter as I tried to swallow my pride and the wisdom made me sicken? He told us to eat of the book as He has told us to eat of His body. A location that does not teach fear is not a valid church location, since fear is the beginning of all wisdom (knowledge). Malachi 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. Malachi 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiners fire, and like fullers soap. Malachi 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Reading about the great characters that of the past has many benefits. We profit by them, learn to bypass their failures, gain courage from their strength in times of crucial stress and strain, and more. For Christians, one of the unmistakably great Old Testament characters is Elijah the Tishbite, of the tribe of Naphtali. He has been written about for centuries by many authors. Ravens fed him, God-given power was his to raise a sorrowing widow’s boy from death, the idolatrous priests of Baal on Mount Carmel heard the impact of his tremendous challenge, and angels became his ministers. He was only a man—but he was a man of God, and that made all the difference. Enjoy this creative biography of one of the Old Testament's most interesting prophets.

Through an innovative synthesis of narrative critique, oral-formulaic study, folkloric research, and literary analysis, Kristen H. Lindbeck reads all the Elijah narratives in the Babylonian Talmud and details the rise of a distinct, quasi-angelic figure who takes pleasure in ordinary interaction. During the Talmudic period of 50-500 C.E., Elijah developed into a recognizable character quite different from the Elijah of the Bible. The Elijah of the Talmud dispenses wisdom, advice, and, like the Elijah of Jewish folklore, helps people directly, even with material gifts. Lindbeck highlights particular features of the Elijah stories, allowing them to be grouped into generic categories and considered alongside Rabbinic literary motifs and non-Jewish traditions of late antiquity. She compares Elijah in the Babylonian Talmud to a range of characters angels, rabbis, wonder-workers, the angel of death, Christian saints, and even the Greek god Hermes. She concludes with a survey of Elijah's diverse roles from medieval times to today, throwing into brilliant relief the complex relationship between ancient Elijah traditions and later folktales and liturgy that show Elijah bringing benefits and blessings, appearing at circumcisions and Passover, and visiting households after the Sabbath.

In order to satisfy their curiosity about God - but not being silly enough to build a machine that would transport them to Heaven - five intrepid and insatiably curious scientists enlist the help of a dozing Bible historian to time-travel back over 2,900 years to visit the Prophet Elijah. Although well-known back in his time, the Prophet is not an easy person to find and the scientists attempt to fine-tune their coordinates to make sure they don't go off their mark like they did on their last time-travel expedition...which, apparently, Alvin the historian seems to have mysteriously forgotten about...

It was the darkest era in Israel's history under the rule of King Ahab and his evil wife Jezebel the Phoenician princess, daughter of the priest of Tyre, Ethbaal, when Elijah - the prophet of the living God came into the scene. He was a burning and a shining light in his generation. A man with fire in his bones; a man sent from God. Elijah was a man full of power and fiery passion for God; as such God used him to perform great miracles that marveled the human mind. This story of Elijah - The fiery Prophet, will take you on a roller coaster ride with this great prophet of God as he raises the dead, calls fire from heaven, contend with the evil proest of Baal, and rides on a fiery chariot to heaven.

I am a local man who is unable to work due to a disabling back injury caused in a truck accident in 2006, I am currently on the invalids benefit. I have a positive mental attitude and firmly believe that when one door closes another door opens. I also believe that knowledge is the key to a brighter future and the being inform will set you free. I seek the truth of my earthly existence and love in this world that is full of illusions and stubborn mind sets that do not accept change and growth. On my journey through life so far I have experienced highs and lows , from being suicidal at times to the exhilaration of being a top soldier, sportsman, father and contributing member of society. I regard family as the most important part in anyones life; it is the stage where you learn to be yourself and about unconditional love. You can choose your friends but not your family lol. I came from a large family of eight; I grew up pretty fast being the oldest male in the family as described in my first letter of my auto biography. I was guided by my ancestors and god to write so that others could learn from it. I am not a clever man I had 198 half days a whanganui boys college it was just good enough for me to pass the entry exam three times to join the army I was both a regular and then territorial soldier, when East Timor turned to violence in 2000 I reenlisted for the third time, but due to medical reasons I was not accepted for my third tour of duty. I am a spiritual being as well as flesh, the body is merely a vessel, my hope is that my book will inspire others of like mind or lost souls open there minds to one possible truth the truth that has captivated and inspired me all my life that we all are the children of a very loving god, creator or supreme being.
