The Elijah-John the Baptist Message of the Advent Movement

     “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”Malachi 4: 5, K.J.V. (The last prophecy of the Old Testament)

To start this New Year 2019, let’s take a necessary stop as it were, as we travel the Advent Movement highway to take a much closer look at vital aspects of the appointed work and central message entrusted to the last-day Advent Movement.  

First, in Christ’s time the disciples and the religious leaders and people alike were familiar with  Malachi’s stirring prophecy. So the disciples inquired, ‘Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?” Christ replied, “Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already.” After more explanations from Christ, “Then the disciples understood that He spake of unto them of John the Baptist.” Matt. 17: 10-18.

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER TWO – Part XII

MOSES AND ELIJAH TESTIFY TO CHRIST’S TRANSFIGURATION

 

Like that of the two different exact mountain sites, where Aaron, Israel’s first high priest, then later, Moses, Israel’s greatest leader, died and were buried—the precise geographical location of where Christ was transfigured is likewise described by Wikipedia as “one of the unknowns of the New Testament.” Their editors were right.

Transfigured in the K.J.V. (Matt. 17: 2; Mark 9:2) is from the Greek metamorphoo, “to transform (lit. or fig.), metamorphose, change.” Metamorphose is from the Greek meta, “beyond, over” plus morphe,“form.” Here’s why these will remain unrevealed to fallen man: the first two were in order to prevent ancient Israel from yielding to the temptation to render idolatrous worship—not only over the dead bodies but also of converting their burial sites into holy shrines. Second, the silence of the Bible on the actual location of the transfiguration speaks for itself. It is the significance of the event regarding vital truths–not the location—necessitating the glorious appearance of two heavenly human agencies already in heaven—Moses and Elijah. Read more

Are We Preparing for the Latter Rain?– Part XXVII

 A Praying People

Enoch, the seventh patriarch from Adam who walked with God for three centuries, and Elijah the prophet whom God sent to sternly rebuke Israel at the height of their apostasy, are types of the character of the work, message, and people who will be translated in the last days. Of the latter the apostle wrote: “Elias [Greek for Elijah] was a man subject to like passions as we are [human frailties], and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought for her fruit.” James 5: 17, 18, K.J.V.

E. G. White says: “We should pray as earnestly for the descent of the Holy Spirit as the disciples prayed on the day of Pentecost. If they needed it at that time, we need it more today . . . Read more
