Elijah

Ordered the death of the priests of Ahab & Jezebel, those lousy Baalists, and, under threat of death, fled to the caves of Mt. Horeb. Winds blew, fire rained, the earth shook, but these were not God. No, God spoke to Elijah in a still, small voice, sent him to Damascus to anoint the kings of Syria and Israel. Further adventure ensued. Finally, Elijah flew off in a chariot of fire and things quieted down.
