The “Spirit of Elijah,” The End-Time Prophet

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse,” Malachi 4:5-6


 Is The Spirit of Elijah among the Ekklesia, the churches?

Elijah’s name means “Yahweh is God.” The prophet Elijah ministered during King Ahab’s reign, which was during the low period in Israel’s history, providing a ray of light and witnessing the word and power of God[1]. 

The book of Malachi 4:5-6 describes Elijah’s end-time role of turning the heart of the fathers, not God the Father’s heart. Many point out that Elijah arrived 2000 years ago in Jesus’s presence. He did on two occasions. The first time was when Jesus testified to His disciples that Elijah (Elias) had already appeared and that they did not recognize him. Yet, the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist (Matt 17). The second time was at Jesus’ transfiguration on the Mount when Moses and Elijah appeared to Peter, James, and John, his brother.

 Didn’t John the Baptist fulfill all the predicted prophecy of Elijah? Didn’t the angel announce the nature of John’s ministry to John’s father, Zechariah? Was he not told that John would come “in the spirit and power of Elijah” (Luke 1:17), which was to give witness to the word and the power of God? When is the great and dreadful day of the Lord? Did it occur before Christ’s appearance 2000 years ago?

Is there a double fulfilment of Elijah’s ministry? John the Baptist announced, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world,” wasn’t it not John’s function to point to Jesus? Isn’t that the role of the Church to point to Jesus also? Did John the Baptist accomplish the commission of turning the heart of the father to the children? If not, wasn’t it postponed because the Israeli religious authorities rejected Jesus and crucified Him?

Will the function and the commission of the prophet Elijah be fulfilled during the dispensation of grace era, the era of the Church? Therefore, if it is not to the Church, when will this commission come to pass? Will it happen after the Rapture? Will there be time to turn the father’s heart to the children during the seven years of the wrath of God? 

Therefore, I believe this commission was passed on to the Church during the whole Church era to turn the father’s heart to the children and the children to the fathers. I know some teachers lecture that the function of prophets has ceased, that Jesus was the last prophet, and that it does not exist anymore within churches.

Really? What do these verses tell you? 

“And God has appointed these in the Church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracle, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues, (ability to speak other languages). Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 1 Cor 12:28-29. 

First apostles. Isn’t it the role of missionaries; “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14.

Second prophets. Just so you know, the word prophet is in the plural tense. Therefore, many have the gift of interpreting God’s prophetic word written in the Bible to the congregation. I am not talking about the interpretation of personal dreams and visions. But isn’t it to give its members an understanding of God’s prophetic word and its application, and one could be the commission of turning the father’s heart to the children?

Yes, I understand that the “spirit of Elijah” is one of the attributes of the Ekklesia of prophets, which helps to bridge the generation gap.

If there is a time in history when children, especially teenagers, needed a father, it is our time. The feminist movement has hindered the role of a father. It has turned the heart of the father away from the children and the heart of the children away from the father. The statistics show that the number of single-parent families in Canada increased from 1.56 million in 2010 to 1.84 million in 2022. Most of the single parents are composed of single women.

Look at the sad state of this young generation growing up without a father. Even within a man-and-woman family structure, fathers have difficulty playing their role. Their true Godly characteristic has been lost. Parents, as well as children who do not know their right hand from their left hand, have been taught perverted sex, and it has become the school’s top priority. Many men and women make the wrong decision to marry without counselling and without understanding the purpose of marriage. 

The old tradition was that a man must be well-established before he married. For that reason, many women became widows at a young age. A woman would accept marriage only to a man who could provide for her and give her security, usually an older man. Wisdom came before love.

Today’s fad is to put emotional love (or hormones) before wisdom. Is it not an act of love to use knowledge to prepare for such a responsibility to care for a family? Nature teaches that lesson; birds prepare their nest, and foxes prepare their den—a big contrast to today’s costume. We lived in common-law first to see if we were compatible, then moved into an apartment. Then, get married after the first child is born, buy a house, get a mortgage, a car, maybe two since both got to work to make payments. Children are sent to daycare by 6 am and picked up at 6 pm. They eat, clean up, and go to bed. Start all over the next day.

Hmmm, there is wisdom in tradition. Some were wise and did all the right things, yet the role of a parent fell short of the agenda. Many men fell short of playing their part and let their wives raise the children. Parents fell short of the role defined as father/husband and wife/mother according to biblical principles. Either way, parenting is not taught. Yet a daycare service must be fully certified to care for the parent’s children. Ironic.

Many children and teens are confused and hurting emotionally. The number of teenage suicides since covid-19 lockdown has doubled. There is an average of 20 drug overdoses per day in Canada, and they are primarily teenagers to young men and young women. We see all around us the effect of broken families and children separated from their fathers. Isn’t a father, a righteous father, playing an essential role in the life of a child, from the day of its birth to the day when the father dies?

I understand that the prophecy about Elijah’s spirit is to take place before the Rapture, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. My friend and brother in Christ, isn’t the spirit of Elijah part of the Church, the Ekklesia? Should Christians undertake that role?

The Spirit and Power of Elijah

Where is the power of Elijah? What is the power of Elijah?


In the book The Great Reset VS The Greatest Revival, I exalt the Laodicean Church, the lukewarm Church, and today’s church era to answer the door. 


“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him, and he with Me,” Revelation 3:20


Church ministries and members, please answer the door and be part of the end-time prophecy fulfillment of turning the heart of the father to the children. Man to be man, man to be husband, man to be father, man to be responsible, and man to be involved in protecting family and country. Righteous men are engaged in the communities and influence all levels of politics, from the municipal to provincial to the federal level. Honest man with Godly values, changing all aspects of our society.

I encourage you to read this book. This book is about hope. It is about a call to the corporate churches and Christians to answer the knocking at the door. It is Jesus knocking. He invites you to be part of the most significant end-time commission, which is to turn the hearts of fathers to children so that the children turn their hearts to their fathers and then to God. Malachi 4:6. It comes with a reward (Rev 3:21)

“For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people,” Hebrews 10:30


How can we tap into God’s power as Elijah did? How can we, ordinary men, experience the power of God moving in response to our prayers?

 My book is for the sake of our children. It is about regaining our parental rights over them. Today, parents have lost sovereignty over their children because the father’s heart has turned away from them. Child training begins with the dedication of the child to God. The parent must realize that the child belongs exclusively to God and is given to the parent only as a stewardship (Eph 6:4)

Can the churches help parents to regain parental sovereignty? It can if the Spirit of Elijah fills the churches through God’s word and power.
