Approximately a month and a half ago, I dreamed I was in a room with several other people. We were all sitting around a large conference room table.
It reminded me of a scene in a movie where they call a company meeting and the associates report to the conference room to get updates on the affairs of the company and to receive new assignments. Assignments were being given out to different people.
One young man was chosen to be a minister of the Word. I remember thinking what an honor and blessing to be chosen at this late hour. I congratulated him, but even as I spoke to him, the Spirit of the Lord came upon me and I spoke the following word.
“God is about to move. He is choosing ordinary people and they are going to go forth in the power of his spirit. He is going to do a mighty work through them.”
My dream ended after this, but God hasn’t stopped dealing with me concerning this dream. I have had many dreams over the years concerning a great move of God coming. Also, there have been times the Spirit of the Lord would speak through me prophetically concerning a people He is raising up. Lately, I have noticed even as I’m writing comments on certain posts the Spirit moves on me to write concerning this move of God. As I sought the Lord concerning this, He impressed the following upon my heart:
“Did I not say in my Word that Elijah must come first? Truly he stands at the door. As surely as John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah to prepare My way, so likewise I have a company of believers of My choosing who will prepare the way for My second coming. I will begin to move upon them soon and they will be clothed in the spirit and power of Elijah.
Just as John the Baptist was in the deserts until the day of his showing unto Israel, so I have kept these I have chose until the time of their showing. I tell you of a truth, that time is near, even at the door. It will seem as if they came out of nowhere. They will walk in a boldness not seen before by this generation. They will preach repentance and the day of vengeance of our God. They will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the fathers. They will turn the disobedient to the wisdom of the just to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Did I not say Elijah would come first and restore all things. Surely they will oppose the false systems and the lying prophets who have run to speak and I have not sent them. They will oppose religious leaders that don’t favor My righteous cause. A fire will issue forth from them and it will consume the works of darkness. Kings will bow to them.
Many will be amazed at those I have chosen, for you see I’m choosing the ordinary. I’m choosing those that have not sought to make names for themselves. For you see My strength and power is perfected in their weaknesses. Through them I will restore the years that the locust have eaten and My people will eat in plenty and be satisfied.
Their rallying cry will be, ‘Jesus is coming soon. The great day of the Lord is upon us. Prepare your hearts, repent and come out from among them and be a separate people.’
Be holy for I am holy and I will come and receive you unto myself.”
Since then, I have received numerous confirmations, including the one I have posted below by Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj. I was studying about the one-world religion and the man of sin and I came across this prophecy concerning the spirit of Elijah. While I am not familiar enough with him to endorse all he says, this prophecy bore witness with my spirit and confirmed what I believe God has been showing me for years concerning this move of God.
The following text was transcribed from the video below, which records a prophetic word from Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj. The prophecy begins at the 44:58 mark and continues until 53:30.
“The spirit of Elijah will be released to bring division in the church. The Lord Jesus Himself said when he was here, “I came not to bring peace, but to bring a division.” (Luke 12:51)
In the same manner, the spirit of Elijah will come to bring division in the church. What kind of division? Division to separate the sheep from the goats, to separate the wheat from the tares, to sift the wise virgins from the foolish virgins, and to sift the true believers who have made themselves ready as the bride from the apostate believers.
The spirit of Elijah will come upon the last-days prophetic company so that they will rebuke the wickedness in the church today. And they will call the church to accountability.
If you read 1 Kings 18, that’s exactly what the prophet Elijah did during his days. He rebuked King Ahab and Israel for their wickedness to worship idols.
The prophet John the Baptist himself rebuked King Herod and his wife, Herodias, for their wicked living style. In the same way, the spirit of Elijah will come upon the last days prophetic remnant company and they will rebuke the wickedness in the church and call her to account.
And finally, the spirit of Elijah will come upon the last-days prophetic company to make them bold against fear.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters, know one thing. Where the previous generation failed, where our forefathers have failed, where the Biblical heroes of faith failed, the last days prophetic company shall overcome and be triumphant.
For example, if you read 1 Kings 19:1-3, after the prophet Elijah had killed 850 false prophets, King Ahab reported this matter to his dear wife, Jezebel. Jezebel was so mad because she was trying to make Israel a haven for demons. That is why she appointed 850 false prophets who would set up temples of demon worship all over the country.
1 Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”
3 And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. (1 Kings 19:1-3)
Elijah had slaughtered every one of them and all the high places and the altars were brought down. She was extremely mad and she issued a challenge, ‘This same time tomorrow, I will have your head just as you killed and beheaded my false prophets.’
Now look what happens next. This great man of faith and power, this great bold prophet, as soon as he heard those words, he became so fearful and he ran away for his dear life. He failed. He failed because instead of being bold, he allowed fear to dominate him. But where he failed, the spirit of Elijah will now come upon the last days prophetic company and they will become bold against fear.
I see a mighty sword standing before me right now. It is as tall as about 6 1/2 feet and the blade is very thick at the base and then it gets smaller at the top. And its’ base is very pointed like a triangle. The spirit of the Lord is signifying to me saying, ‘Look at the sword. The blade is very thick. The handle is thick and round and golden and it is very weighty. That is how this last-days prophetic generation will become. They are upright before God. They will be strong and bold inside them and they will be used by God as a sword.'”
