The last couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing with you about mantles from heaven. This new mantle assignment that has been put upon your life – you’re going to have to seek the Lord for it.
You may be experiencing a difficult time receiving your mantle because there is always a lot of spiritual warfare during transition. Any time there is an uptick in spiritual warfare, it is evidence that a transition is happening and a new mandate is upon you.
You may also feel the heaviness of God’s splendor and majesty upon you right now. It comes along with the new mantle. You might even be saying, “Lord, I don’t know where I’m headed. I need understanding on this new vision, this new thing you are setting up for me.” If that’s the case, then I want you to remember the story of Elijah and Elisha.
2 Kings 2:8-10 “And Elijah took his mantle and wrapped it together and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither so that the two went over on dry ground. And it came to pass, when they had gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, ‘Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee.’ And Elisha said, ‘I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.’ And he said, ‘Thou hast asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.’
And it came to pass, as they still went on and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, ‘My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof!’ And he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.”
He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and smote the waters and said, ‘Where is the Lord God of Elijah?’ And when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither; and Elisha went over.”
God is saying to you today, “SEE the strategy!” You are a spirit being who lives in a soul and has been placed inside an earthly body. That means you need your spiritual eyes to see what the Lord has released upon you. You need a heavenly perspective. As you begin to see this, you will begin to develop a God-given strategy for what is coming.
You need spiritual discernment to be able to understand what God is doing. This is a supernatural thing that manifests on the earth. Remember, Elijah told Elisha, “If you see me when I am taken, you will receive it.” Well, Elisha saw it! He saw the heavenly host, the angels of fire and the angelic event happening!
You need to be touched by heaven too. The manifestation takes place after you are touched spiritually. You need to be in that place where heaven is open and you walk confidently with the heavenly host and the angles of fire.
The mantle you’re receiving is positioning you to carry out the plans and purposes of God in August and September.
