The Mantle of Elijah!


We all want to see breakthrough wont we?
We all want to arise and shine wont we?  BUT when the Lord gives breakthrough and opens doors (for someone) suddenly the ugly face of jealousy is showing up!
He and He alone is the One that gives us our calls and tasks so if we fight against this we fight against HIM!
I waited upon the Lord to speak to us about this issue this is what He gave me:

Are you willing to follow Me?  Are you telling Me you love Me? 
Are you saying to Me that you love Me and you want to see Me move? 
Is your eye upon Me?  Are your thoughts upon Me?  Are you willing to pay the price?
Do you love Me?  Why then is it you fight against Me?
Every step every move I take is for the sake of My Name It is for My purpose, It is My plan…
Now give to Me your pain bitterness and jealousy Cause again the only one you are fighting against is ME! 
Your Father! 

Part of a prophetic word from the Father through His Spirit Received in 2005:

I saw two circles spinning round in opposite directions!
The one big circle turned around in the direction of evil  (the own self)
The smaller circle cycled in the direction of God!  (self denial)
We all sense that we have entered a different time frame.
A new season is making itself known!  Isaiah 43:19!
But if you take a closer look then you will still see people running after big names and huge, impressive ministries.
It’s not that these big names and ministries are wrong in themselves, but the question is:
is it God Who leads you to this meeting, to this ministry, or…….  (you can fill it in for yourself).

The Lord spoke:

“People run and plan, but I AM the spinning wheel and with MY loom I will weave MY patterns! 
The diamond that is being polished by ME is made up of one big stone:
I AM Around this big stone there are all kinds of small stones (ministries) 
and these on their turn have been polished and shaped into all kinds of different edges (people around it). 
One can see that the diamond glitters on all sides. 
At the same time it just depends on the way the light falls which colors will come to life!” 

In other words, He determines when something has to illuminate.
Everyone stands in his or her calling and everything is united by that one big stone….  YESHUA!
Everyone functions in his or her own color, taste and aroma, because HE weaves the pattern and HE determines where, how, what and when…
During our prayer we were led to break this spirit that impresses us with Big Numbers, Names, Meetings, Buildings……
HE should be our First and our Last!
He holds our threads together in HIS hand and weaves a coat of many colors…..
the mantle of ELIJAH!  AMEN!

  1. John 16:7
    Amplified Bible (AMP)
    7 However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].
    John 20:22
