Elisha was the successor of Elijha in the Old Testament. Before Elijah was taken into heaven by a chariot of fire, he asked Elisha what he wanted, and Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's annointing. Elijah then said, if he saw him being taken into heaven, that the double portion would be bestowed upon him.
