PASSING ON THE MANTLE – The Elijah Legacy:
When we speak of the mantle of Elijah, we are not speaking about some sacred shroud or religious antiquity. The mantle that descended upon Elisha represented God’s sacred call … the destiny … and the anointing that rested upon Elijah.
It wasn’t just Elijah’s words that identified him a a prophet of the God of Israel. It was the POWER of God demonstrated through him as he walked in an intimate relationship with his Master.
