“…I will send you Elijah the prophet….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 4:6
This is the last verse of the Old Testament. Of course Jesus said John the Baptist was the Elijah to come. http://onlineusadrugstore24.com. But I believe there is a Spirit of Elijah – there is a prophetic and apostolic anointing by the Holy Spirit available for us to step into to see this curse broken!
It is an anointing that turns hearts – first the heart of the father to sons and daughters – and then their hearts will open and turn to the fathers.
In this apostolic reformation movement, I believe we have a mandate from heaven to do this.This is really my heart. May God use us to heal a generation of fatherlessness.
