Chariots of Fire to the Rescue

Melachim B (Kings II) The King of Aram is again invading Israel, and has Elisha surrounded.  In his panic, Elisha’s servant cries out, “What shall we do?”  Elisha prays to God to, “Open his eyes and let him see,” and the servant suddenly sees an army of fiery horses.  The Talmud speaks of everyone being accompanied by invisible angels everywhere at all times.  Elisha’s miracle, in this case, was not to be God’s hand in creating some new reality, as with splitting the Jordan river or curing disease, but in giving someone the ability to see parallel spiritual dimensions which are already in existence.
