All About Elijah

Elijah John

Elijah John: "The Lord Is My God, He is Gracious"

The origin of the name Elijah John: Hebrew

Elijah was a great Hebrew prophet of Israel who appeared mysteriously during the 9th century B.C.E. and left this earth in a blazing chariot ascending into the heavens. He appears in the Bible in 1 and 2 Kings, and is seen with Moses during the Transfiguration of Jesus.

A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,

Beauty with a cut on its finger,

Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,

and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.
