My Vision on a Triple Portion of Godís Grace
Jhn 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
This Sabbath a.m., August 25, 2018, I am in the state of Maine where I was born. I came here last week to escape the severe, heavy smoke invading western Canada, from the 500 plus forest fires in British Columbia, the province just west of Alberta, where I live.. I visited the birth place of Ellen White in Gorham, Maine, and I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In a night season of prayer, I asked the Lord Jesus why John the Baptist refrained from claiming that He was a manifestation of the Spirit of Elijah. This manuscript is a revelation of the answers that I was given.
I was shown that the reasons John did not claim to be Elijah are as follows:
1. Elijahís mission was before the Incarnation of the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, after which His Spirit was made more available to man.
2. Elishaís mission was also before Christís time. Elisha prayed for a double portion of Elijahís Spirit.
3. The reason Elisha prayed for a double portion of Elijahís Spirit, was because the Triple Spirit of the Godhead was not yet available until the fulfillment of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ.
4. The reason John the Baptist did not claim to be Elijah, was because One far greater than Elijah had arrived, and John saw his far lesser station than that of the One who had come to manifest His Spirit to man.
5. John felt that he should decline, and that Jesus should be lifted up as the Triple Source of power available through the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
I was reminded how that when Jesus came in His Incarnated form, we could then supplicate Him for a Triple portion of grace power to do His will, and that any person who receives that Triple portion will not extoll himself as Elijah or Elisha, but will turn the hearts of men to the FathersóGod the Father, and Jesus our Father, and not himself as being Elijah or Elisha.
The current true School of the Prophets, will teach that we should supplicate the Master for the Triple Portion of His Grace Power, that has been available since the Incarnation Sacrifice of the Son of God, for it is His Spirit that will teach us all things.
Since the Incarnation Sacrifice, the Spirit of both the Father and His Son Jesus, has been available to man. They BOTH will come to those who meet the conditions. Notice the following Bible verse:
14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Long ago I was shown that the reason the Father and the Holy Spirit of His Son Jesus BOTH come to us, is because they are of the same essence and substance, SPIRIT, THE ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT, which constitutes them as ONE GOD.
We are permitted the great privilege of praying for the Triple portion of the Spirit from the Father, the Sonís Holy Spirit, and our mediator Jesus Christ. In light of the great sacrifice that made this outpouring of the gift of Godís Spirit available to man, it would be foolish and redundant to claim to be Elijah, or Elisha with a double portion of the Spirit, when we can receive a TRIPLE PORTION of the Spirit of God, that will teach us all things.
It is thus that I was shown that anyone claiming to be Elijah at the end-time, is fully ignorant and behind the times of the working of Godís Spirit.
My next question was quite naturally: Why then, does the Bible say in Malachi that Elijah will come fore the great and dreadful Day of the Lord? I was shown that all the concerns of Elijah and John the Baptist will be reiterated by the 144,000 saints, who will fully understand the highest good, crowning Sacrifice of the Son of Man, the Testator of Hebrews 9.
Heb 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
Heb 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
All who comprehend the degree of sacrifice involved in the Incarnation of the Son of God, and that this sacrifice would have been made for ANY ONE OF US, will love Jesus too much to sin. I have known men who loved their wives too much to sin against them. How much more we should love Jesus and not sin against Him. No human has made the sacrifice Jesus made for us, and our love for Him should be commensurate with the great sacrifice He made for us in FOREVER leaving His former estate of being DIVINE ONLY, to become human FOREVER.
Yes, His Divine Nature Holy Spirit continues to exist forever, because Divinity cannot die, but Jesus made the eternal sacrifice to continue as a MAN/PRIEST FOREVER.
Hebrews 7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Rom 1:5†† By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:†
Just as John the Baptist recognized the folly of calling himself Elijah, because Jesus, one far greater had come, so today, the real Elijahís wonít refer to themselves as being Elijah or even Elisha with the double portion. They will be invested with the TRIPLE PORTION available to them from the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that will teach them all things.
The Triple Sources are:
The Father and His Eternal Holy Spirit
The God/Man Jesus Christ as our Mediator with the Father
The Holy Spirit of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, which comes to us with that of the Fatherís Spirit, for they are ONE AND THE SAME ETERNAL SPIRIT, John 14:23.
In the Name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
