This is a fellow I have heard people talk about but I have never actually seen him myself. Just recently I have been told there are a number of people in the USA who claim to be Elijah the prophet! lol lol
Are you aware many Jews are still waiting for Elijah to appear? They will get a very big surprise when he does appears and declares to them the Lord Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah!
Elijah of course is one of the two people who have never died! Jerusalem is a very interesting place, I should imagine one of the first things Elijah will do is destroy all the places which are dominated by superstitious, idolatrous Babylonianism! The Jerusalem Syndrome is very interesting!
The following video shows Americans in very bad light, unfortunately it happens to be true!
A controversial portion of scripture and a controversial subject!
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
