The Two Witnesses (2)

The Spirit of Elijah. It, too, is a witness of God's grace and mercy and power but in a different way. The way of the prophetic, the power and authority to challenge and destroy the works of darkness - the lies and the deceits of the devil. The falseness of the religious ways of man - to take on the prophets of Baal. This is the spiritual darkness in high places.

We do not fight flesh and blood but spiritual power. The demonic power that rules the minds and spirits of mankind. The ideas, the thoughts, the philosophies, the religions of man. Elijah challenged the Baal prophets directly. He was used by God to destroy the false worship, supported by the King and Queen, Ahab and Jezebels. He was used to demonstrate the power and the authority of God over the "prince of the power of the air", the satanic worship of false gods and all it represents.

In our time there are many many false gods and religions - not the least of which is the god of science, the god of man's increased knowledge. It is worshiped and set on high above the Living God. It is held to have the answers to life and its practitioners are openly derisive of God's principles and ways.

The "priests" of the false beliefs/religion are celebrated by mankind and held in awe by ordinary people. They are honoured and feted by accolades, title and letters. They are held to be the keepers and revealers of great truths. Given prizes, they hold sway over the known sum of man's accumulated wisdom and knowledge. Just as the prophets of Baal and Moloch were held in honour, regard and fear, in Elijah's time. As one man he stood in opposition to 800 false prophets (priests?) and because God was with him - he prevailed.

He was a witness to the truth, the ultimate power and authority of God over all other powers. He challenged and destroyed the "truth" of the people's belief and demonstrated the total Lordship of the One True God. This is the spirit of Elijah and the coming "spirit of Elijah" - the authority to call down "fire from on high".

The revealing of the lies fostered in man's minds by the father of lies, to burn and destroy the false prophets, who speak according to their own thoughts and ideas, and do not rightly divide the Truths of God. Who pervert the Way, the Truth and the Life of Jesus Jeshua for their own ends. Who work iniquity in the name of Jesus, who practice false religion and worship false gods. The many who are anointed with this spirit will stand on God's Truth and declare it to the heavens and God will answer them with fire from on high. And on the top of the mountains God will rain down His judgment.

Wow to the false prophets and this time the queen Jezebel will be cast down and destroyed by the Elijah's - they will not be afraid and they will not fail because they will be filled with God's perfect love that casts out all fear. They will prevail in God's Mighty Army and God's Mighty Power. Jezebel is Judged and found wanting. She Will Die.

Those of the Elijah spirit will weld the word of God and the sword of the Spirit with great authority and power. They will be given wisdom and revelation far beyond natural understanding. They will speak the Words of God with great authority but with great humility and they will always acknowledge the source of their wisdom. They will not steal God's Glory for their own. They desire no accolades from men but only to speak the true unaltered words of God - as Jesus Jeshua did.

He did as He saw His Father do - He always gave the honour and glory to God. The new Elijah's will be like Jesus; humble and able to stand in the midst of God's Holy Fire and speak words of His making which will bring forth God's will to earth - as Jesus did. They will perceive the honour and privilege but give God all the Praise and Glory. They will remain pure and holy in the face of corruption and a corrupted generation. AMEN


Elijah's story is in 1 Kings 16-19 & 2 Kings 1 & 2

Eph 6:11-12 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

John 8: 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language,
for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Luke 21:8 He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.

Rev 2:20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality
and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.
