The term “Last Day Prophet” is not new. Neither are those who call themselves such:
- Ellen G. White – Last Day Prophet
- William Branham – Last Day Prophet
- [A detailed account of Pastor Ed Byskal and his experiences with William Branham]
- Brother R.G. Stair – The Voice of the Last Day Prophet of God
- Just to name a very few
The thinking is that the prophet Elijah will return before the great and dreadful day of the Lord (Malachi 4:5) to restore all things (Matthew 17:11). Many people believe themselves to be working in “the spirit and power of Elijah” today, although not claiming to be THE Prophet. Today there is felt to be a need for restoration – restoration of holiness, true Biblical doctrine, gifts of the Spirit, authority. The Christian world is ripe for an Elijah to appear but also susceptible to a false Elijah.
A true Elijah will point to Jesus Christ, as John the Baptist did, without claiming anything special for himself.
In fact, Jesus already declared that THAT “Elijah to come” was indeed John the Baptist. Whom the unbelievers refused to accept as Elijah.
Let us not make the same mistake by not seeing John as THAT Elijah spoken of in Malachi.
***Warning*** There is a “Last Day prophet” that is coming…
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
