Elijah the prophet

2 Chronicles 21:12

21:12 Elijah the prophet. Elijah prophesied in Israel, but he was also concerned with Jehoram’s apostasy in Judah. Apparently, shortly before his translation into heaven he sent this prophecy by messenger to King Jehoram, predicting his untimely and painful death. Although the ministries of Elijah and Elisha are very prominent in the books of Kings, this is the only mention of either of them in the two books of Chronicles. Their ministries, of course, were primarily in the northern kingdom, whereas Chronicles focuses almost exclusively on Judah. This reference does indicate, however, that they were well aware of developments in Judah.
