God’s Assignment for the Elijahs


This is a post that I pondered on all day in releasing.

I got confirmation this morning on what I was hearing, but was pondering rather to just release to my students in my School or to the public.

This post comes from something I was studying in 1 Kings 19:1-15.  Upon reading God spoke to me and said,  “I AM giving the Elijahs an assignment in this hour, because many are about to be taken away from the forefront.”

As Elijah stood in the cave he encountered three things:

  1. Strong Winds
  2. Earthquakes/ Landslides
  3. Fire

All three of these are occurring right now upon the earth.

After encountering these three encounters, God gives Elijah instructions and directions that are precise clear and very specific.

Prophets, if not careful, will release a word too soon, without getting the specifics that are connected to it.  That’s why they sometimes come back with a word that seems contradictory, because they didn’t wait to get God’s total revelation concerning what they initially heard.

They often get the first part and release it without getting an understanding of what is being released totally by God.

Right after the encounter with God, the instructions are given to Elijah to go anoint three persons.

  1. Hazael ~  the wind
  2. Jehu ~  the landslide
  3. Elisha ~  the earthquake and fire

These three were being anointed for three specific reasons and each had an assignment attached to the anointing.

God never gives a person an anointing without a purpose.  Understand that each of their name meaning is very important.

1. Hazael  (the wind) means ‘God has seen‘.

He was the Lord’s Instrument of Discipline for punishment for His people, because God was angry with His people!

He did mighty acts of destruction against the people of God, including burning their children to other God’s.

2. Jehu (the landslide) means ‘Yahweh Is He‘.

He was used as God’s messenger of rebuke and correction.  He was known as the Messenger of Doom.

He was an adviser to Kings who had a zeal for God and did service to man.  He was giving the task of destroying two major adversaries of God’s people Jehoram and Jezebel.

3. Elisha (the earthquake and Fire) means ‘My God Is Salvation‘.

He is The Finisher to God’s assignments that are not complete.  He was a Replacement Prophet sent forth to complete those things left undone by others as well as destroyer of Baal which has produced a false worship in the land.

He is the restorer of true worship.  He is a military strategist as well as a friend to foreign leaders who came to him for wisdom and directions.

He was constantly on the move, in so much that the woman saw him walking and inquired of her husband to build him a place to stay.  He was an ordinary man with power and authority and also known as a Miracle Worker.

Each one of these whom Elijah anointed, had a job to do and right now it’s time for the Elishas to be stirring around the earth.

There is a wind of God coming now to the United States of America, from the East to the West, that will produced the shaking and fire of revival.

If you notice most of our threats come from the East, in the United States, because satan knows this is the direction that the Sun (Son) rises and it brings in the light that dispels the darkness.

The enemy wants to batter the East Coast, because our governmental system is there, our financial and economic giants are there, our powers that rule is there.

This is the reason a lot of false apostles and prophets love the East and West Coasts, because this revival shall sweep from the East to the West and bring forth a greater glory.

They settle in these areas to prevent the move of God and to control the land and finances from the true church.

The Elijahs have already anointed the persons to execute God’s plan now, and the Hazaels and Jehus have gone forth.

Now it’s time for the Elishas to come and finish the work in the land.  They are moving around now.  They are ordinary persons whom people don’t really know about.

They are only know as servants who pour water on their leader’s hands, but they walked with them to obtain all they needed to lead the people back to true worship and to destroy Baal and all connected, out of the land!

They won’t sit in a church, but they will constantly move about the people and will have schools of training throughout the land.

Be prepared!  Things are about to take place.  But remember, God is in strict control, even when it don’t look like it.

Remember these three:

  1. The Instrument Of Discipline
  2. The Messenger of Doom
  3. The Finisher

I am going back into prayer, trusting God will give you some understanding and peace in all that is taking place in this hour!
