THE DOUBLE PORTION
Then the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came back to him, and he revived. And Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. And Elijah said, “See, your son lives!”
Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is the truth.”
1 Kings 17:22-24 NKJV
We read about people who walked with the Lord in the Bible. In the Book of Genesis there was a man called Enoch who walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. We hear again about Enoch in the book of Jude; here Jude tells about how Enoch prophesied about the second coming of Christ and the judgment that will be upon ungodly people. (Genesis 5:24, Jude 1:12-15)
Then we read about Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua and without forgetting Gedion, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the prophets. There are major and minor prophets but in the book of Kings we read about a Prophet named Elijah; who was taken up God by a chariot of fire with horses of fire and Elijah ascended in a wind storm to heaven.
God used Elijah in the mighty way when he was still living on this earth; Elijah did 8 miracles and Elisha his spiritual son did twice of Elijah miracles because he received the spirit of double portion from Elijah. These are the miracles which Elijah did before he was taken to heaven:
1. I Kings 17:1 NO RAIN FOR 3 1/2 YEARS Authority with nature.
2. I Kings 17:14 MEAL AND OIL FAILED NOT Food supply to sustain life.
3. I Kings 17:22 RAISED THE DEAD - WIDOW’S SON. Healing and restoration.
4. I Kings 18:38-40 Mt. CARMEL. CLEANUP OF THE PROPHETS OF BAAL. Religion has to go!
5. I Kings 18:41 RAIN RELEASED After ‘Baal’ cleaned up.
6. II Kings 1:10 ANTI-GOD ARMY - FIRST 50 CONSUMED BY FIRE. False (in spirit) revivals!!!
7. II Kings 1:12, 14 SECOND JUDGMENT OF 50.
8. II Kings 2:8 JORDAN OPENED. Veil split so that all may enter into the land of promise.
This morning, I want to prophecy to you that you may receive a double portion anointing from God in your life that came down from Elijah. May the LORD God bless you in the field, and bless you in the city. May He sustain you and your loved ones with enough food to eat; may He heals you and your family and restore all what the enemy has stolen in your lives.
May He break the chains of religion in your family that your loved ones may receive Jesus as the Lord and Savior of their lives. May He deliver everyone in your circle of influence who is still possessed by demons and oppressed by the devil. May He cast away every kind of false beliefs in your family line and make you to see His glory in this life and the life to come.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your word. Lord I receive the double portion anointing in my life by faith in your Son Jesus Christ. Lord I pray that the anointing may break every yoke and loose every chain in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
