The spirit of Elijah shall surely come again and restore all things, and turn the heart of the children to their fathers.
Mal.4.5 Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6a And he shall turn the heart of the
fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and
smite the earth with a curse.
Mt.17.10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come ? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truely shall first come, and restore all things. 12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come
already and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13 And the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the baptist.
In verse 11, Jesus said, Elias truely shall first come: (future tense); and in verse 12, that Elias is come already: (present tense).
John the Baptist went in the spirit and power of Elijah.
John the baptist
did not restore all things, nor turn the heart of the children to their fathers.
The angel Gabriel told
Zechariah, that John the baptist would turn the hearts of the fathers to the children.
Lu.1.13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zechariah,
for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear a son, and thou shall call his name John. 14 And thou shall have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15 For he shall be great in the
sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go
before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
The prophet Malachi said, Elijah
the prophet will turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and
the heart of the children to their fathers.
Mal.4.5 Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the
great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6a And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children
to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
From the time of John the Baptist, before the great day of the Lord, the
hearts of the fathers; (the Israelites who became Christians), were turned to the children; (the Gentiles who became Christians).
I believe the spirit of Elijah shall
come, before the dreadful day of the Lord, to turn the heart of the children;
(the Christians; the grafted-in branches of the wild olive tree; Spiritual Israel), to their fathers; (the good olive tree; natural Israel; Jacob; the Jews).
The Lord Himself said, Elijah truely
shall first come and restore all things.
To restore the truth and the true way,
to the people of God; many of whom have been seduced away by man's false interpretations of doctrine, and corrupt translations of the scriptures; into seperated churches that have been built by man, and the traditions of men; and have been
taken captive by false religeon into Babylon.
Many are, at this time of apostasy, gathering darkness, and beginning of sorrows; associateing themselves ecumenically, into a confederation of denominations, in an
attempt to unite themselves into a one world church. This will lead to a one world church, led by a false prophet, proclaiming the beast as the messiah.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her
sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
Isaiah 8:9 Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries:
gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces. 10 Take council together, and it shall come
to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us. 11 For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Say ye not, A confederacy,
to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. 13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts Himself; and let Him be your fear , and let Him be your dread.
Christianity is being revived in the earth; as the children of God are comming out of separating doctrines, and beginning to understand the truth that God is with us; and are beginning follow the ever-present, in-dwelling
living Word of God, in Spirit and in Truth, and are being built, as living stones, by the Lord Himself, into the unity of the one Body of Christ.
[The spirit of Elijah, and the spirit of Moses, will be mightily powerful in the hearts and souls of the two witnesses, Jacob and Israel; who witness for God, against the beast and the false prophet, during the
time of the beast]. (see study on 'the Two Witnesses' on this website)
The Spirit of the Lord of Hosts will combine the two olive trees (Jacob and Israel) into
the one candlestick. Hallelujah!
Zechariah 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened
out of his aleep. 2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are
upon the top thereof: 3 And the two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. 4 So I answered and spake to the angel that
talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? 5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? and I said, No, my lord. 6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This
is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
Those, of natural Israel (the good olive tree), chosen
to salvation , and those, of the Gentiles (the wild olive tree), chosen to salvation, spiritual Israel, will be gathered together, by the Lord of hosts, into the one candlestick(church).
Hallelujah! Glory to God!
A prayer for the children of God.
I pray, in the wonderful, powerful
and victorious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that the children of God will continue to come out of separate denominational doctrines about the written word, and will enter into, and remain in, His promised rest; to take His yoke upon us, to learn of Him,
and to walk in the glorious Light of the ever-present living Word of God, Who never leaves us nor forsakes us, Who lives in us, and Who will sanctify us and build us, as living stones, into the unity of the one Body of Christ; that we may be bright shining
lights in these times of apostasy, and gathering darkness, and beginning of sorrows. That we may be written among those Chosen, to live in Him in Spirit and in truth, in the obedience of living, saving Faith unto eternity with our Heavenly Father, in Christ
Jesus our Lord, Amen! Amen?
Send forth the Spirit of Elijah, dear Lord, that all things might be restored; that the heart of the children be turned to the fathers; in Christ Jesus, Amen!
Isaiah 8:13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts Himself; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.
