TOPIC: THE GOD OF ELIJAHTEXT: 2 kings 2:14- "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".
1. Beloved, there comes a time in everyone's life when he/she needs to experience the reality of God.
A time when one needs God to show that whatever He has done before, He can still do again and again- Hebs 13:8.
And our God is forever consistent. He repeats miracles without stress.
2. Elisha was in a fix and all he could do was to call for God, whom he had seen manifest severally and strangely in the ministry of Elijah,
to show up,take control and see him through.
3. Whatever He did for Elijah, He will also do for you IJMN.
4. By the way, WHO IS THE GOD OF ELIJAH?
WHO IS THE GOD OF ELIJAH?
1. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN SHUT AND OPEN THE HEAVENS- 1 Kgs 17:1; 1 Kgs 18:45.
For three and half years, there was no rain in the land of Israel because Elijah decreed it. God can shut the heavens,
and He can also keep the heavens opened. He does as he pleases- Psa 115:3.
PP- I decree today, No more will the Rain of Afflictions fall on you IJMN.
- I also pray that the heavens will not cut short the supply of good things in your life IJMN.
2. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN PROVIDE BY ANY MEANS- 1 Kgs 17:4.
For Elijah, it was birds that brought him food when he was hungry because there was no hope of ever finding food at his location.
Can you imagine ravens parting with what it loved most to eat for Elijah to be satisfied?
PP- I also decree that out of the least expected places, God will supply all of your needs IJMN.
- Everyone God has ordered to be a blessing to you, shall locate and bless you on time IJMN.
- As the raven was looking for Elijah, so shall Destiny Helpers be looking to bless you from now IJMN.
3. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN MULTIPLY LITTLE TO BECOME GREAT - Gen 1:28; 1 Kgs 17:14.
There is doubt that the God of Elijah is a multiplier loves His children to be fruitful.
The first thing God did after the creation of man and woman was to command them to be Fruitful, Multiply, replenish the earth,
subdue it and exercise dominion.
The little meal the widow of Zarephath had was multiplied.
PP- I decree into the life of anybody that willnshout the loudest Amen that you will never be hungry again in your life IJMN.
- You will not beg nor borrow to eat and feed your family members IJMN.
- The grace to always have food and the good appetite to eat, receive IJMN.
- Whatever good thing you have now in small measure, the GOE shall multiply beyond measure for you IJMN.
- Anything you wished was more in your life, the GOE will cause it to be more than enough for you IJMN.
4. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN BRING LIFE OUT OF DEATH- 1 Kgs 17:22; Lk 7: 11-16; Jhn 11:41-44; 1 Kgs 17:22; Mt 27:62-28:2.
The GOE is also known as the RESURRECTION AND LIFE. He raised the son of the widow of Zarephath from the dead.
What about the son of the woman of Shunem, son of the widow of Nain, Lazarus and the GLORIOUS RESURRECTION OF EASTER SUNDAY?
There is nothing dead that the GOE can not bring back to life.
PP- Whatever dead thing you desire to be alive, RAL will bring it back to life for you IJMN.
- That thing the devil thought he has killed in your body, life, marriage, business and destiny will bounce back to greatness IJMN.
- The RAL will visit you today and permanently terminate the era of rejection, stagnation, sickness, disease, poverty, lack, failure, delay, loneliness, barrenness, unemployment, underemployment, bondage and spiritual attack you are currently experiencing IJMN.
- That prodigal daughter, son, husband and wife will come to their senses and run back home IJMN.
IF YOU RECEIVE IT SHOUT A VERY LOUD HALLELUJAH.
5. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN SEND FIRE FROM HEAVEN- 1 Kgs 18:38.
On mount Carmel, Elijah called for Fire of God to come down and the GOE sent it immediately.
Fire to destroy the pursuers of your life and destiny. Fire to disarm your rivals of their weapons.
He did it on mount Carmel and He can do it over and over again anywhere- Hebs 13:8.
PP- May the Fire of GOE descend today and destroy everyone seeking after your life and glory IJMN.
- Let that Fire fall upon every obstacle disturbing your progress IJMN.
At the end of the encounter, all the Baal prophets were eliminated from Israel.
- From today, let every physical or spiritual gang-up, confederacy, association or
agreement established to prevent your joy and glorious manifestations shall be eliminated permanently IJMN.
6. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN PART THE JORDAN RIVER OR RED SEA- Exo:14:21; 2 Kgs 2:8.
The GOD OF ELIJAH parted river Jordan and the Red sea and can make a way for you to get to the end of your desires.
He can remove that obstacle between you and your joy. The GOE can also turn to a stepping stone, barriers placed on your way to fulfillment.
PP- I decree that every Jordan between you and your reserved blessing shall part and give you straight access IJMN.
7. THE GOD OF ELIJAH CAN GIVE A DOUBLE PORTION- 2 KGS 2:9-10.
Whatever God gives, He can also give it in double fold: even in multiple folds. He is infinite in resources even when He gives beyond measures- Phil 4:19.
For your shame you shall get double- Isa 61:7.
PP- I pray for you, that everything you shall ask the GOE from now, shall be granted in double or multiple folds IJMN.- Eph 3:20.
- The God of Adeboye will manifest Himself in your life today as the Lord God of Elijah IJMN.

9. Thou Resurrection Power, pls speak life to every dead situation of my life IJMN.
10. O Lord God of Elijah, pls bring to life again, every good thing that have died in my body, life, family, ministry and destiny IJMN.
11. My Father, My Father, pls arise and let every Jordan between me and my breakthrough and joy open up now IJMN.
