    Malachi 4;5,6

    5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
    6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

    According to this scriptures he will send Elijah before He comes and judge the earth. God second coming is judgement!

    Was Elijah has already come?

      God ... Is !

      Elijah ... is a Prophet ... known by many names ...
      John came, and hath returned ...
      The Messiah, Elevated ... to Return in The Lord's Ordained ...
      before the onset of The Day.

      Jesus mentions in the Bible that John the Baptist his cousin was the Elijah that was to come.

      John the Baptist was a harbinger of Jesus like Syed Ahmed Barelvi was a harbinger of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908.

    Didn't Jesus say...John the baptist walked amongst you but you did not know him because he was Elijah?....or something like that?

    If this is true than yes.

      Hi,  thanks for your comments,...
      you are partly right.....

      CONSIDER these Scriptures on the spirit of Elijah:

      MALACHI 4:5-6- "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

      Malachi 4:5 and 6 is two-fold, fulfilled in part in the ministry of John, the Baptist. He preceded the first coming of Jesus Christ, called the “great” day of the Lord, turning the hearts of the fathers of the “law” to the children of the New Testament era of “grace.”

      As stated in Jamieson, Fausset & Brown Commentary on the Whole Bible, “…John the Baptist was an Elijah in spirit (Luke 1:16,17) but not the literal Elijah (John 1:21). This implies that John, knowing he was referred to by Malachi 4:5, knew by inspiration that he did not exhaustively fulfil all that is included in this prophecy: that there is a further fulfillment. There is a prophet that will fulfill the second part of this scripture, forerun the second coming of Christ and “turn the hearts of the children to their fathers..” Literally, this means that there will be a ministry that will turn the hearts of a backslidden generation back to the Word of God and the faith of our “early church” fathers before the “dreadful day of the Lord”, the second coming of Christ in judgment.

      Again, Matthew 17:10-12 is two-fold. Firstly, “Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?” “… But I say unto you, That Elias is come already and they knew him not …” speaking of John the Baptist. Secondly, “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.” Speaking of a future forerunner to precede Christ’s second coming.

      The ministry of William Branham is the fufillment of the coming of the spirit of Elijah that was to precede the second coming of Christ which is to "restore" the heart so of the children banck to the teachings of the Apostolic Fathers.

      The ministry of William Branham involved three distinct stages that he referred to as “pulls”. The First Pull: Healing. Second Pull: Prophesying. Third Pull: The opening or revealing of the Word of God.

      The ministry of Jesus Christ followed exactly the same pattern. First Pull: multitudes flocked to hear his gracious words and to receive His miraculous healing touch. Second Pull: Revealed the secrets of the hearts. (John 4:17-18) Third Pull: His “message”, the Word of God which came in strength and contrary to the religious order of the day, caused the multitudes to leave him. “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” John. 6:66

      Quite an important Jewish prophet, he brought the dead back to life, ascended to heaven, and generally wasn't the nicest of beans.  He appeared during the transfiguration.

    The way I understand this is that Elijah fulfill this prophesy being incarnated as John the baptists(In the spirit of)
     
      I believe Elijah is one of the two witnesses, or candlesticks that stood before the throne of God, (Rev.11) which was sent to the earth for 1260 days : a prophet reference of time which is always different to our reference of time.

      When you read Daniel 9:26 and truly think about it, you will find that 62 weeks of prophesy is a different period of time than it is for us.

      Many theologians teach that a day in prophesy is a year for us here on earth.   I suggest that 62 weeks is 568 of our years.
    because in Daniel 9:23 Gabriel tells Daniel that this commandment HAS gone forth just a couple of days before this visit.  The 62 weeks began in 538 BC. The crucifixion most likely took place in 30 AD.

       This single misunderstanding has caused ALL of the confusion that we have had concerning biblical prophesy.
       Either way, a day = a year or a week = approx 9.13 to 9.16 of our years is irrelevant. 1260 days in prophesy is a very long time.  It would either be 1260 years or as I suggest, approx 1650 years.

       One of these two witnesses are Elijah.

       I believe that if a prophet ever walked the earth ,in the flesh in the past 1650 years, there is a good chance that it was an incarnation of Elijah. If not Elijah then the other witness.

      In my opinion, Elijah has been walking among us for approx 1648 years.
       And this 1260 days if almost finished.

    For example : YHWH(Yahuwah)not Yahway..  is his name Psalms 68:4 NKJV

    God “YAH“(Source of all creation ) is a spirit(energy), and they that worship him ,worship him in spirit(energy) and truth(BY DEFINITION OR SCRIPTURE). John 4:24 

    You shall love the lord(owner) your God(Source of all creation) with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37

    “Repent(change your ways) and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Yahshua (gods salvation) for the cleaning of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of Yahshua (gods salvation) holy spirit(energy). Acts 2:38

    “ If you love me keep my commandments”. John 14:15/Exodus 20:1-17 Including James the second chapter

    Keep the FEAST days according to Leviticus 23 /New Testament Hebrews 4
    Including Hanukkah and Purim  John 10:12 and the Apocrypha I believe in the last chapter of Esther

    Stay anointed with Pure Virgin Olive Oil  Pray over it with 2 or more people
    In his original HOLY righteous name Yahoshua ( Gods salvation) Immanuel (God with us) This is why we say HALLELUYAH!

    “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over Psalms 23:5

    There is Desirable treasure, and oil in the dwelling place of the wise, But a foolish man squanders it. He who follows righteousness and mercy, finds life, righteousness, and honor. Proverbs 21:19

    Heart- Emotion, feeling, desire, motive.

    Soul-  The invisible body of a being that connects with the source of the spirit (So the Holy spirit is actually the spirit(energy) coming from the source of all creation) When we are born aren’t we first surrounded by water?


    EXODUS 20:1-17
    And God spoke all these words, saying:
    “ I AM the LORD your GOD(source) , who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall no other gods before me.

    You shall not make for yourself any image- any likeness of anything that is in heaven above , the earth beneath , or in the waters under the earth. You shall not bow down to them nor serve. For I the LORD your GOD, am a jealous GOD, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those that hate me, but showing mercy to the thousands, to those that love me and keep my commandments(no symbols no crosses all these are futile Jeremiah 10, Isiah speaks of this too several times

    You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

    Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the SEVENTH day is the Sabbath of the LORD your GOD. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it .

    Honor your Father and Mother, that YOUR days may be long upon the land which the LORD(owner) your GOD(the source of all creation) is giving you.

    You shall not Murder (Purposely Kill someone)

    You shall not commit adultery.( Don’t Lust, Cheat, or Fornicate)

    You shall not steal

    You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor( Don’t Lie)

    You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbors wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s ( Covet means to wish for an others belongings)

    Lastly pray in the holy spirit anointed with your hands up in a close room with or without people say Halleluyah as fast as you can with all your heart, mind and all your soul .Yah will speak to you touch you and baptize you with fire! It almost feels like drinking warm wine that's him pouring reviving your spirit, cleaning your soul. Lastly look up the definition of Rapture . Matthew 6:33
