Are You Today’s Elijah?

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual reform is about giving the Spirit of God the freedom and forum to carry on what God has intended to do through those who will embrace the call.

We have had great men and women impact our world with the gospel in the past. Now it is your turn to refuse to back down and take a stand against the spirit of destruction bearing down on this generation. Your day has come to put on the mantle of hope and life, to proclaim sight to the blind and freedom to the oppressed. Can you sense that something big is stirring?

You are today’s Elijah. You are chosen for radical change. You have the army of supernatural transformation at your disposal. You are called to join the Spirit revolution, fighting the forces of darkness that have their means of destruction, captivating today’s youth and tearing apart our homes and schools. Addictions to opioids and alcohol, overdoses, suicides and homicides, domestic violence and terrorism are indicators of the death that reigns over the nations of the world. By the looks of the condition of our society, we are the underdog. Oh, but looks can be deceiving.

I don’t know about you, but I will not fear a foe who has already fallen to the sword of the overcoming supremacy of the Word of God. When we wield that weapon, the enemy’s reign is mightily opposed. His rule is weak in the shadow of our omnipotent God. Don’t doubt it for a minute—you are on the winning side!

God is raising up an army; a people who know by experience that the power of the Holy Spirit is upon us with great power to demolish the works of Satan and his dark forces. Victory does not come through human abilities and resources.

The Spirit of God is strong in our weakness, giving us clear eyes when our vision is limited. Our humanity is no hindrance to God. Surrender and watch Him take the foolish things of this world—you and me—and turn us into powerful tools and weapons to bring down the strongholds of the enemy.

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8, NKJV).

When Jesus stood up in the temple and read from the book of the prophet Isaiah, I believe a Spirit revolution began. The scholars and religious leaders had been reading those passages with no understanding of who Isaiah was referring to. Jesus was right there in their midst, reading the verses, and they still had no idea that He was the fulfillment of that prophecy. As Christ read from the scrolls, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me” (Isa. 61:1), He revealed that God was ready to do a new thing in a way they had not planned for, through the outpouring of His Spirit.

I tell you, He is moving again in unexpected ways, through men and women like you and me. If we will trust Him, surrender to His way and honor the Holy Spirit, He will touch many souls and leave a legacy of healing and liberty. There is no time for complacency, my friend, so I encourage you as Paul did the church at Ephesus.

“Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Eph. 1:15-18).

I challenge you to embrace a fresh consciousness of the presence of God. I believe you will live a life of miracles as the disciples did when Jesus walked the earth. God never intended for the church to be a flophouse, or a “Bless Me Club.” Rather, we are a house of power and prayer where the spiritually wounded, burdened and hopeless can find help, healing and radical transformation.
