During a recent time of intercession, I was moved by the Holy Spirit and with my face turned toward Heaven, I cried out three times, “Where is the Lord God of Elijah?” I was surprised by the intensity of the way I spoke, but was even more surprised when I heard God immediately answer, “Where is Elisha?” That stopped me in my tracks and caused me to think about Elisha. I sensed that the Lord was asking where were His servants, the ones fashioned in the spirit and character of Elisha—these are ones who get accelerated answers from God. Elisha cried out to God with that statement after he had received the double portion of Elijah’s spirit he had asked for. He saw Elijah taken up into the heavens, picked up his mantle that had fallen and struck the water with it:
“Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, “Where is the LORD God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over.” 2 Kings 2:14
When Elisha was called by Elijah to follow him, he left everything to serve him faithfully, as the disciples did with Jesus. Elisha was also not easily offended. In the last days before Elijah was taken, he admonished Elisha four times not to continue following him—Elisha refused to leave and stayed with him to the end. Elisha’s hunger for God was evident by his boldness to ask for a double portion of Elijah’s spirit; he persevered until the end and received what he had asked for.
God is looking for His Elishas in this hour who will be characterized by the greater works of Christ and of Elijah. Saints who are not easily offended when things are not going their way, or the going gets tough. These are the sons who will now pay the price and rise to the occasion of the divine appointment for this hour. The Lord is looking for those who will give everything to follow Him wherever may He lead. In this critical season we must be positioned securely wherever the Lord would have us and go wherever He sends us. God may be asking many to relocate to new regions and cities. When making these important decisions remember that to be in the center of God’s will is always the safest and most secure place to be.
I believe there is a spiritual movement God is presently orchestrating to reposition and relocate large portions of people is safe places and cities of refuge in preparation for what is coming on the cities that are erupting in turmoil. The Lord declared in Luke 17 that days would once again come on the Earth characterized by the days of Noah and the days of Lot.
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26-29
Genesis 6 tells us that the Earth in the days of Noah was corrupt in God’s sight and full of violence, “God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways” (Genesis 6:11-12). It is important to step back and look at things in context to understand the flow of the movements of God and the trajectory of the progression of evil, as with each diabolic milestone the enemy merely regroups, rebuilds, and returns wiser and stronger than before.
There are times where God must do a course correction in the downward slide the world periodically takes as iniquity has its way. In the twentieth Century we saw God do this approximately every 40 years. At the beginning of the 1900’s the corruption in the Earth led the world on a course toward WWI initiated by Germany. Nevertheless, God moved to bring victory on 11/11/11. There was tremendous joy and celebration as the world heaved a great sigh of relief. The downward slide however, resumed, falling to its lowest levels of gross evil under Adolf Hitler that exploded into WWII—again initiated by Germany. During this period God raised up a man for the hour—Winston Churchill sounded the trumpet and with the Allied nations paved the way to victory in 1945.
After the shock and trauma of this ferocious war where fifty million people died, the weary world began to heal, nevertheless the world quickly entered a state known as the Cold War. In the 1980’s God again moved to bring relief and raised up a man for the hour. In 1987 Ronald Reagan boldly released the anointed decree to Mr. Gorbochov to “…tear down this wall.” The world once again breathed a sigh of relief when as communist governments were replaced, the walls across Europe simultaneously began to come down, including the notable Berlin Wall. There was great jubilation, and a period of joy and peace came upon the Earth. Yet, even as everyone was talking about peace, peace, the storms clouds began to gather once again. Evil never gives up!
It is also notable that during the times surrounding both world wars that significant shifts began to take place with Israel and the Jewish people. After close to two thousand years, in the period before and during WWI there began an Aliyah of Jewish people making their way home. That trickle became a flood After WWII, as persecuted Jews of Europe went home to initiate the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948.
With WWI, WWII and one Cold War behind us I believe God is now giving warnings that the world is once again approaching a time of trouble. America is Spiritually vulnerable on its Eastern and on its western fronts and the northern and southern borders. There may be light at the end of the tunnel, but to get there, we will need strong persevering intercession during a period of turmoil.
The system characterized by Babylon in the Bible is about to suffer a great fall. Babylon represents the world systems as shown in the book of Revelation and reflects the great pride and arrogance of man rooted in Satan—the prince of pride. The Lord has uttered the decree in His Word that pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall (Prov. 16:18). The day always comes, even if it is long in coming, when God rises to judge sin and the pride of man.
“After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” Revelation 18:1-3
Since 1945, in the aftermath of WWII, evil men continued their plot for world Dominion. In this present day, Satan’s diabolic intentions for a world order under his rule, is once again creeping over the planet as dark forces regroup to plot their return to power. In 2020 they moved into action in a resurgence to ultimately seize world power. Using Covid-19 as cover to implement their evil plan, they launched their strategies all over the Globe, crafted by the mandate of the World Economic Forum whose founder is the German born Klaus Schwab. His recent book that spells it out is Covid-19: The Great Reset.
For the purposes of the New World Order, governments have strategically used emergency powers to hijack the world. With these powers they have locked in control over populations through lockdowns and mandatory mask wearing. Forced vaccinations and vaccination passports to buy and sell is where we are headed, as the Media, Hollywood Stars, leaders of corporations and Social Media, have all strangely joined push to have the entire world vaccinated. The world is once again teetering on the edge of the abyss as diabolical people taste power.
During a time of sitting before the Lord I began to suddenly sense a burden in my spirit for the people of America, especially the states on the east and on the west coasts. I began to think of New York and the movie Escape from New York. I began to think of California and the many prophetic warnings it has received over time. There is presently a great repositioning and movement of large portions of the population taking place, especially in New York and California. Hundreds of thousands of people have left these states and liberal cities, to relocate in Florida, Texas, and conservative states. What is happening? There may be a spiritual calling out underway and time for many to leave these cities.
Unless God has positioned you in these places where crime is escalating and controls over the people are increasing, you should prayerfully consider leaving. However, these liberal cities may be your assignment from the Lord, and if that is so God will keep you and watch over His purposes in you for that city. There you must stand and hold the ground He gives you without fear! A Spirit of faith will come upon you to stay and hold your ground.
For others, God has Glory Zones of Light that the Harvest is being drawn to, with assignments to disciple these ones. These are protected zones that could even be a neighborhood. As I pondered these things, I heard the Lord say I was to read Micah. I began to read through the book when I came upon chapter 6:10:
“Arise and depart, for this is not the rest [which was promised to the righteous in Canaan], because of uncleanness that works destruction, even a sharp and grievous destruction.” Micah 2:10
“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
God is raising up His Elishas for this hour who fearlessly follow wherever He leads. He is preparing to release Elijah’s mantle upon a generation prepared in fire to run a race of fire—an Elijah generation who go before the Lord’s Presence. I have spent days pondering Elisha’s life, and one morning opened a daily devotional I have been using by Robert Henderson and read:
Elisha knew that it was time for him to receive the mantle of Elijah. Therefore, he would not allow anything to distract him or cause him to delay in following Elijah. The result was the receiving of the mantle that allowed him to make history (2 Kings 2:13, Henderson, Robert. 365 Prayers and Activations for Entering the Courts of Heaven (p. 76). Destiny Image, Inc.).
It is now time for an appointed generation to receive the mantle of Elijah and move out to become history makers. God is asking: “Where are my devoted Elisha’s who are ready to receive Elijah’s mantle and become the generation that does great exploits in my name as he did?” Are you one?
