And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up
2 Kings 6:17
Then Eli'sha prayed, and said, "O LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes that he may see." So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Eli'sha.
Psalm 68:17
Why look you with envy, O many-peaked mountain, at the mount which God desired for his abode, yea, where the LORD will dwell for ever?
Psalm 104:3
who hast laid the beams of thy chambers on the waters, who makest the clouds thy chariot, who ridest on the wings of the wind,
Psalm 104:4
who makest the winds thy messengers, fire and flame thy ministers.
Ezekiel 1:4-28
4
As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness round about it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming bronze.
5
And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the form of men,
6
but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings.
7
Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished bronze.
8
Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus:
9
their wings touched one another; they went every one straight forward, without turning as they went.
10
As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man in front; the four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle at the back.
11
Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above; each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies.
12
And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit would go, they went, without turning as they went.
13
In the midst of the living creatures there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
14
And the living creatures darted to and fro, like a flash of lightning.
15
Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel upon the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.
16
As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of a chrysolite; and the four had the same likeness, their construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel.
17
When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went.
18
The four wheels had rims and they had spokes; and their rims were full of eyes round about.
19
And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose.
20
Wherever the spirit would go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
21
When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
22
Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of a firmament, shining like crystal, spread out above their heads.
23
And under the firmament their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another; and each creature had two wings covering its body.
24
And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the thunder of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of a host; when they stood still, they let down their wings.
25
And there came a voice from above the firmament over their heads; when they stood still, they let down their wings.
26
And above the firmament over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness as it were of a human form.
27
And upward from what had the appearance of his loins I saw as it were gleaming bronze, like the appearance of fire enclosed round about; and downward from what had the appearance of his loins I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness round about him.
28
Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
Ezekiel 10:9-22
9
And I looked, and behold, there were four wheels beside the cherubim, one beside each cherub; and the appearance of the wheels was like sparkling chrysolite.
10
And as for their appearance, the four had the same likeness, as if a wheel were within a wheel.
11
When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went, but in whatever direction the front wheel faced the others followed without turning as they went.
12
And their rims, and their spokes, and the wheels were full of eyes round about--the wheels that the four of them had.
13
As for the wheels, they were called in my hearing the whirling wheels.
14
And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of the cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
15
And the cherubim mounted up. These were the living creatures that I saw by the river Chebar.
16
And when the cherubim went, the wheels went beside them; and when the cherubim lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the wheels did not turn from beside them.
17
When they stood still, these stood still, and when they mounted up, these mounted up with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in them.
18
Then the glory of the LORD went forth from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim.
19
And the cherubim lifted up their wings and mounted up from the earth in my sight as they went forth, with the wheels beside them; and they stood at the door of the east gate of the house of the LORD; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them.
20
These were the living creatures that I saw underneath the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were cherubim.
21
Each had four faces, and each four wings, and underneath their wings the semblance of human hands.
22
And as for the likeness of their faces, they were the very faces whose appearance I had seen by the river Chebar. They went every one straight forward.
Habakkuk 3:8
Was thy wrath against the rivers, O LORD? Was thy anger against the rivers, or thy indignation against the sea, when thou didst ride upon thy horses, upon thy chariot of victory?
Zechariah 3:8
Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who sit before you, for they are men of good omen: behold, I will bring my servant the Branch.
Zechariah 6:1-8
1
And again I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, four chariots came out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze.
2
The first chariot had red horses, the second black horses,
3
the third white horses, and the fourth chariot dappled gray horses.
4
Then I said to the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?"
5
And the angel answered me, "These are going forth to the four winds of heaven, after presenting themselves before the LORD of all the earth.
6
The chariot with the black horses goes toward the north country, the white ones go toward the west country, and the dappled ones go toward the south country."
7
When the steeds came out, they were impatient to get off and patrol the earth. And he said, "Go, patrol the earth." So they patrolled the earth.
8
Then he cried to me, "Behold, those who go toward the north country have set my Spirit at rest in the north country."
Hebrews 1:14
Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation?

Mark 16:19
So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
