THE SPIRIT and POWER OF ELIJAH
-David Wilkerson.

The Old Testament closes out with this glorious prophecy: "Behold,
I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great
and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the
fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,
lest I come and smite the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6).

Jesus said of John, "If you will receive it, this is Elijah, which was
for to come" (Matthew 11:14). What Christ was saying is, "John
the Baptist has the spirit and power of Elijah upon him” if you
could just see it." We are told the angel of the Lord prophesied to
Zachariah that his son John would "go forth before the Lord in the
spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the
children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make
ready a people prepared for the Lord" (Luke 1:17).

I believe Malachi's prophecy is for today also. I believe that once
again God is going to put upon many of his chosen servants the
spirit and power of Elijah. And these men and women of God are
going to be mightily used to bring about a restoration of families.
Divorces will be canceled! Children will be convicted of their
rebellion and be restored in love to their parents.

This prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes right now. In a
Texas town, an unassuming young pastor began to pray for the
salvation of the youth in the local schools. God anointed him with
the dynamic spirit and power of Elijah and not only have hundreds
in his local school been saved, but the restoration is spreading to
schools wherever he goes. Not hundreds but thousands of high
school students are being convicted of their drugs, alcohol, sex
and rebellion. Young people are hurrying home from outreaches
to make up with their parents. They have been confessing deep
hatred, but now they weep and repent! This will spread all through
the land because God has promised to restore parents and children.

Because of what I see coming, I am so excited I can hardly write
these words. Unknown, unassuming, humble young men and
women of God are being miraculously touched and anointed. They
have been given a supernatural mission to "Go forth” and restore!
For the day of the Lord has come. The cankerworms of drugs and
alcohol are no longer permitted to eat away at the life of the youth.
God will destroy the cankerworms."
