What is the Elijah Message ?

by Sister Sabbay ( December 25, 2008 )

As time advances and God’s people seek to edify the populace about the New Covenant Experience and the True Witness, Christ Jesus the ELIJAH MESSAGE becomes such an important focus (Mal 4:5,6). The remnant, people of God, are given a reformatory message similar to Elijah, who preached to Ahab and Jezebel. Elijah’s message is related to our End Time messages of revival and reformation, calling the people of God back to the Divinity of God, repentant in nature. John the Baptist, a righteous martyr, preached the Elijah Message, as the people of God need to preach this same message (Matt 3:2,3; Matt 11:9-15).

Sabbay,

The Elijah Message is definitely necessary for our time, unto the return of Christ Jesus, Yeshua. As a Seventh-day Adventist, it is imperative that we continue to emphasize reformation and revival (GC pg. 148).

Sabbay,

Given my studies, the Elijah Message does relate to Revival, Reformation and Repentance. Thus I am in full agreement with this composition (Malachi 4:5-6).

Sabbay,

I do agree that Elijah was one of the most profound workers for Christ, providing a significant message for the last days regarding Revival, Reformation and Repentance (Malachi 4:5-6, Great Controversy pg. 148).

Ellen White taught that SOMEBODY was to come in the power and spirit of Elijah.What is your understanding of who this somebody is, since she could not have been in reference to herself?

I am not certain who the messenger will be but the ELIJAH MESSAGE will be a message of Revival, Repentance and Reformation, calling the people of God back to the Divinity of God, repentant in nature. John the Baptist, a righteous martyr, preached the Elijah Message, as the people of God need to preach this same message (Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 3:2-3, Matthew 11:9-15, Great Controversy page 148).

That somebody is Ellen White. Are we not confronted by that somebody ever since 1844 which are the last days? can we not read the books that display the Elijah message?

“Be not afraid of man, for My shield shall protect you. It is not you that speaketh: it is the Lord that giveth the messages of warning and reproof. Never deviate from the truth under any circumstances. Give the light I shall give you. The messages for these last days shall be written in books, and shall stand immortalized, to testify against those who have once rejoiced in the light, but who have been led to give it up because of the seductive influences of evil.” {1SM 32.3} … See More

These were the words that Jesus spoke to this somebody. Therefore, we know that the Elijah is amongst us. Paul spoke of him knowning somebody that went up into paradise. That somebody was himself. Sr White is speaking of herself in 1SM 412.2. There is no future prophet.

Somebody is to come in the spirit and power of Elijah, and when he appears, men may say, “You are too earnest, you do not interpret the Scriptures in the proper way. Let me tell you how to teach your message.” {1SM 412.2}

Paul spoke of somebody which was himself;

2 corinthians 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

Ariadne,

You are correct, but I believe Shane was asking of someone that is alive today. From John the Baptist to Ellen G. White, there have been several teachers of the Elijah Message. So far, God has not found a need for an additional Prophet, as Ellen G. White has taught enough to prepare us for the Kingdom of Heaven, pointing us back to the Holy Scriptures (Revelation 19:10).

Dear Readers,
To come to the right understanding regarding Elijah’s message we have to look at the original message of Elijah. At the time Ahab and Jezebel had led Israel to worship other gods. This was the problem Elijah was sent to counter on Mount Carmel. He challenged Israel over who was God Jehovah or Baal. When the challenge came to Israel to choose God revealed himself in a most impressive way. Elijah’s message was to call Israel back to the worship of the true God . This is in truth the message of Israel for today. I will send Elijah (the message of who is God) to God’s people at the end of time because God saw that the SDA’s would turn from Him to worship another god. And that is what has happened. SDA’ s now worship the trinity god of Baal. The trinity denies that Jesus is the literal Son of God. Jesus is the Son of God. The trinity teaches that Jesus is a co-eternal, self existent being without BEGINNING. If Jesus has no beginning then he is not a son. For you can only be a son or daughter if you are born. John 3:16 tells us Jesus is begotten. Proverbs 8:22-30 tells us that Jesus under the title of wisdom was as one brought forth (born) and brought up with the Father, a son rejoicing always before Him. This is the Elijah message for the SDA’s only so that God can see who is who in the SDA church. This is the shaking message to shake the church to its foundation. What should be the foundation of God’s church? An acknowledgement that Jesus is His Son and Jesus said that upon this truth as Peter answered Jesus you are the SON OF GOD. This the rock of truth that SDA’s have lost. They have been bewitched by the trinity and have forgotten the fundamental truth that Jesus is the literal Son of God. This is what the early SDA’s believed but the enemy of souls through his Jesuit agents entered the church as wolves in sheep’s clothing to destroy the flock of the church of God.

Sis Sabbay, the elijah message is everything you said and also includes the Sabbath Reform, which up till now, no one has a full understanding of. How do we keep the Sabbath more fully? That is what Ellen White said we will do in the last days. Also, have you heard or read the article, “Exposing the Skeleton in the Closet of 1888″? This is really an eye-opener.

Elease,

I added you to the list on AdventistWheatPublishing@gmail.com! There many issues that are currently preventing Christ’s return, and you are correct SABBATH REFORM IS MANDATORY. Here is an article about Adventism delaying Christ’s return and Hitler emerging, praying it is a blessing to you. http://www.examiner.com/christian-character-development-in-new-york/adventism-delays-christ-s-return-and-satan-s-agent-hitler-emerges

We know that the fulfillment of the 2300 days (according to Dan. 9:24-27) ended in 1844, but have all the promises been fulfilled? Was the transgression finished? Was there an end of sin? Was everlasting righteousness brought in? Has the vision truly been sealed up? I think not. Could there be another fulfillment/application to this prophecy? All that and more form part of the message of the Last Elijah (of whom we are in this generation.

THE ELIJAH MESSAGE

Elijah is a heroic figure in Jewish tradition. It is he who fearlessly challenges King Ahab, whose Phoenician wife has introduced the worship of the idol Baal into the Jewish Kingdom.
Each Passover, a special cup of wine is filled and put on the Seder table. During the Seder, the door of the house is opened and everyone stands to allow Elijah the Prophet (Eliyahu ha-Navi) to enter and drink. At every bris, a chair is also set aside for Elijah. At the conclusion of Shabbat, Jews sing about Elijah, hoping he will come “speedily, in our days…along with the Messiah, son of David, to redeem us.”

THE PROPHET ELIJAH’S MESSAGE, “THE LORD, HE IS GOD”: Elijah cursed Ahab, 1 Kings 17:1 “As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.” Afterward, God tells the prophet to hide from the King in a brook known as Wadi Cherith. Meanwhile, as Elijah warned, the country suffered a severe drought.
After trying to track Elijah down for three years, Ahab’s top aide, Obadiah, finds the prophet. Knowing that Elijah’s curse had been fulfilled, Obadiah is hesitant to turn him in, but he is also afraid of what the King would do if he does not. Elijah makes the decision easy by promising to go before Ahab that day. He agrees not out of fear of the King, but because God has commanded him, “Go, appear before Ahab, then will I send rain upon the earth” 1 Kings 18:1.
When Elijah meets Ahab he challenges the 450 priests of Baal imported by Jezebel to a contest at Mt. Carmel to prove whose god is the true God. The priests and Elijah slaughter a bull as a sacrifice and call on god to consume it. The priests try a variety of prayers, dances and even self-mutilation, but nothing happens. Elijah then calls on God to prove his power and a great fire comes from the sky and burns the bull. The Israelites who witness the act declare in 1 Kings 18:39 “Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!”” (Adonai, hu ha-Elohim), a commitment to the worship of the Creator God recited these days seven times at the end of the Yom Kippur service each year.

OLD TESTAMENT – MALACHI – THE ELIJAH MESSAGE: Malachi 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.” The message of Elijah was “The Lord, He is God.” Therefore when Malachi prophesies he does not say that Elijah would physically come again, but rather that the message of Elijah would be repeated. This message is also embodied in the name of the prophet Elijah (names are frequently a significant Bible code), אליה ‘Eliyah, meaning that Eli (God) is Jah (YHWH), or in mispronounced colloquial English, “Jehovah is God.”

NEW TESTAMENT – THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW – THE ELIJAH MESSAGE FULFILLED: Luke 1:17 announces the prophetic ministry of John the Baptist “He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” The Elijah message is to prepare a saved people ready for the Coming of the Messiah, but there is a deeper spiritual code written into the name of the prophet ‘Elijah’ “THE LORD, HE IS GOD.” An important and significant message of John the Baptist is not just proclaiming repentance and salvation, but that the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, is in verity GOD YHWH!

THE ELIJAH MESSAGE FOR TODAY includes all the teachings of the original Elijah, repentance, salvation, and restoration; the messages of John the Baptist, repentance and renewal; and the Teachings, Ministry and Atonement of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and in truth YHWH GOD. Jesus says in Matthew 17:1 “But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise the Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.”
In Hebrew Jesus’ name is spelled as “Yeshua.” The ‘Ye’ in Yeshua is the abbreviated form of YHWH. ‘Shua’ is from the Hebrew word for salvation, yasha. Jesus’ name literally means ‘YHWH is salvation.’ The name ‘Jesus,’ then actually contains the name ‘YHWH’ in abbreviated form. While YHWH simply describes who God is, when it is combined with a verb it describes what God does. The name ‘Jesus’ describes the fact that YHWH has become salvation. Who is Christ? He is YHWH, saving His people from their sins. If YHWH is not God’s name, then Jesus’ name becomes meaningless. To deny that God’s name is YHWH is to ultimately deny the name of Jesus.
Restoring the name of God is a Gospel imperative for the times we are living in. When Muslims are killing thousands who do not accept the Baal-like Allah of Islam; when some Christian groups teach an invisible docetic or Gnostic Jesus and lower Him to being a mere creation and not completely God; when the largest church in the world, the Papal church, teaches a Jesus that is sacrificed daily, over and over again, in thousands of Eucharistic ceremonies; while our humanistic world is trying hard to remove the name of Jesus from Western society…(all of these are antichrist) 1 John 2:22 “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son” – the Elijah Message needs to be proclaimed and thundered around the world – Jesus is YHWH GOD! He is our Creator, Savior, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The YHWH (GOD) of the Old Testament is the KURIOS (LORD) of the New Testament.
The greatest and most vital of all the commandments is to love the Lord your God, Deuteronomy 11:22 “For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do – to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him.”
This is the first of the Ten Commandments, Exodus 20:1-3 “And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other gods before Me.”
During His ministry on Earth, Jesus told the scribe in Mark 12:29 & 30 “Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first Commandment.”
It is also the first of the Three Angels Messages in Revelation 14:6, 7 “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth – to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people – saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear (TRUST AND WORSHIP) God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.”

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word,
And the Word was with God,
And the Word was God.”

John 3:16-18 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever Believes in Him Should Not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the
World to Condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned
Already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

“As a people, we are to stand firm on the platform of eternal truth that has withstood test and trial. We are to hold to the sure pillars of our faith. The principles of truth that God has revealed to us are our only true foundation. They have made us what we are. The lapse of time has not lessened their value. It is the constant effort of the enemy to remove these truths from their setting, and to put in their place spurious theories. He will bring in everything that he possibly can to carry out his deceptive designs. But the Lord will raise up men of keen perception, who will give these truths their proper place in the plan of God.”
E.G. White, 1 Selected Messages, 201

Titus 2:11-13 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
Righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and
Glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.”

This message is not limited to the S.D.A denomination. God has no use for denominational idolatry, and sectarian division in the Body of Christ. God knows those who are members of His Church, who will be faithful in the time of trial. Let us all work TOGETHER to make the midnight cry, behold the bridegroom comes.
