This is an insightful word previously posted in 2011 by the Elijah List from Francis Frangipane. In light of so much negative news in the media and angry voices rising daily, this is an excellent reminder of the war we are in and how we can pray.
Two thousand years ago, Jesus stated that the ministry of Elijah was not over. He promised, “Elijah is coming and will restore all things” (Matt. 17:11). Also, Malachi the prophet wrote, “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will restore…” (Mal. 4:5-6). Elijah is coming to war and restore. He came before the great day, and he is returning before the terrible day of the Lord.
Let it also be known that if Elijah is coming before Jesus returns, so we shall also see the manifestation of Jezebel in the world. Do you not discern her in our land in the abundance of witchcraft and harlotries? Do you not hear her brazen voice rejecting God’s authority? Have you not, with shame, beheld her working as she caused God’s “bond-servants” to “commit acts of immorality” (Rev. 2:20)? Seeing Jezebel so blatantly manifest herself only confirms that the spirit of Elijah is also here bringing repentance and raising up warring prophets throughout our land.
