2 Kings 2: 9 - 12: And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
Elijah’s mantle represented his prophetic ministry.
Brother Branham was the Elijah for this age; the Bride is the Elisha for this age, for She is a continuation of that prophetic ministry because the same robe is now upon her.
God did not change the mantle to fit Elisha, but He changed Elisha to fit the mantle.
The Bride is being changed from glory unto glory so that the prophetic ministry fits her just perfect.
Elisha received a double portion of the spirit that was upon Elijah; Elijah did four miracles; Elisha did eight miracles.
On the wings of a snow white dove; Shreveport, Louisiana; November 28, 1965
Why, me an old man, suffered all my life, why did He heal me now? I believe I’ll ride this trail again, I got to bring a message! And I say to my Father, tonight, (as Junior seen in a-a dream the other night of the wings of this dove, moving in these windows here), LORD, Your servant’s reporting for service. Amen, I’m ready!
God is riding the trail again in His Bride; what was seen in the prophet’s time is being seen again in the Bride body.
