Yet again a passage is given that is not a prophecy. The list maker references Elijah the Prophet (Eliyahu HaNavi) being transported ALIVE to the heavens in a fiery chariot. Given that Elijah was a normal human how does this passage support the idea that the "ascension" of Jesus to heaven somehow makes him divine or god-like?
The list maker is also beginning to repeat himself (herself?). We visited “The bodily ascension to heaven illustrated” in the 2nd of these 365 supposed prophecies. #2 tied the claim to B’reshit / Genesis 5:24 (which is about Enoch dying). The passage does not say anything about Enoch being taken PHYSICALLY (in other words “his body”) into heaven.
This time the list maker is tying the claim of a bodily ascension to heaven to Melachim Beit 2:11 / 2 Kings 2:11. The prophets Elijah and Elisha are together: “And it was that they were going, walking and talking, and behold a fiery chariot and fiery horses, and they separated them both. And Elijah ascended to heaven in a whirlwind.”
Bodily ascension indeed!
But note that:
Since Elijah was a normal human being Melachim Beit 2:11 / 2 Kings 2:11 shows that bodily ascensions are not limited to divine beings but are possible with mere humans. Far from proving that bodily ascension proves that Jesus was the messiah / divine the passage enforces that he normal humans can be taken (body and all) up to the heavens. This passage about Elijah actually negates Jesus’ claim of divinity (since Elijah was not divine and he ascended). . .
The most important point of Melachim Beit 2:11 / 2 Kings 2:11 is that yet again we have a passage given as “proof” that Jesus fulfilled a biblical prophecy – and where is the prophecy? The passage is speaking of what happened to the prophet Elijah. It is not a prophecy of what will happen to someone else some time in the future. . .
