The Last Elijah Calling
For over a decade I asked the Lord to reveal the Scriptures about the 'last Elijah calling' to me. Between errors in translations, and the fact that Gabriel changed his Malachi 4 quote, I was stumped. My breakthrough came when the Lord began expanding my insight into all the splits in His Word. When I began to see that God and Jesus spoke "a little here, and little there" on purpose "for people to be snared and taken", like it says in Isaiah, I trembled and was glad I didn't run with one of the false doctrines about the last Elijah. Given the information in this site, it seems fitting to unravel this mystery also. (although this is a condensed overview...)
* There are many ]splits[ in the Scriptures and words of Jesus. The easiest one to see is Isaiah 61:1,2 because there is an absolute proof for it in Luke 4. "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound: To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD ]split[ and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;" Now here is the proof in Luke 4:18-21 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. ]split[ And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
Point: Jesus stopped reading because His first coming was NOT for the day of vengeance. There was no punctuation.
Do you see the split?
Lets continue with this last Elijah fellow...
Matthew 17:10-13 kjv "And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things. 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.” Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.
Point: Jesus called John the Baptist 'Elijah', yet saying there was yet one more Elijah to come, who would restore all things.
Malachi 4:4-6 kjv "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, ]split[ and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
Point: There is a split here. John's ministry was not about turning hearts to make happy families, that would contradict Jesus saying He came to bring family strife. Jesus quoted Micah 7:6 proving this...
Then the angel Gabriel quotes Malachi 4:5,6, but changes all the words after the split. We know Gabriel doesn't make mistakes. John's dad Zechariah found that out the hard way... Here are Gabriel's words in Luke 1:16, 17 kjv "And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, ]split[ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
Point: Gabriel was talking about John "turning the hearts of the fathers to the children", but Gabriel knew that the rest of the sentence wasn't about John's calling, and so he changed it - setting a snare for anyone who isn't careful... It is the role of the last Elijah to "turn the hearts of the children to their fathers", and it isn't literal. John's ministry opened the door for the 2 father's who sow 'children' into the kingdom; meaning God had said He would "sow the seed of Israel and Judah amongst the seed of men and the seed of beast", and that Satan was busy sowing his children and they were "suffering the Kingdom with violence and taking it by force" as it says... It has been a 2000 year sowing ordeal; now the restored gospel of God that Jesus walked in is about to "turn the hearts of the children" "to their corresponding fathers"... Do I have to say it? Everyone who still calls satan "papa" won't have this gospel. Only the real ones will "sing this new song" as it says... Can you understand how the restored gospel will turn people's hearts?

Isaiah 46:11 kjv "Calling a ravenous bird from the east, ]split[ the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
Isaiah 48:7-11 kjv "They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them. Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb.For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another."
Isaiah 48:14-16 kjv "All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The LORD hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans. I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me." This is God talking about His long and intimate relationship with the last Elijah...
Isaiah 48:19-21 kjv "Thy seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me. Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob. And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out."
Cyrus's deliverance was nothing like this. Many of the Jews did not even leave Babylon, those that did went back to rebuild ruins.... This is better than that....
