Elijah must return again. Is he already here, if so, how would you accept him as genuine. The messiah was rejected by the very people he initially came to save, the very people who studied his return and could reason with his understanding of scripture. How will people know who Elijah is and do you believe he is actually here, in this present day?

Elijah must return again.
Why? I'm not expecting him.

It's Jesus I'm waiting for, not Elijah.

You should be. He is expected before the dreadful day of the Lord, to turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. John the Baptist was not Elijah, but came in the spirit of Elijah. The Lord has not returned yet, therefore Elijah is expected. He even said, when questioned that he was not Elijah, although the power of Elijah worked through him.

Elijah will restore all things before the Lord returns and comfort the people, John did not. He was a prophet, no doubt but did not fulfil what the scriptures said would occur before the Lord returns.

Hi
I have wondered has Elijah already bean or at least his spirit starting with the reformation and culminating in the 1800 with all the great preachers and missionary work done around the world.
Now we are in the the time Paul spoke of the great falling away.

Love and Peace

Matthew ch 11v 11 Jesus says, 'Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it. 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. 14 And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come. 15 Whoever has ears, let them hear.'

Elijah has come, if you believe what Jesus said.

Hi John
Well we can't argue with the words of our Lord can we.
I am curious to know why John the baptist did not know who he was

 Joh 1:21  And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
Joh 1:22  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
Joh 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Our Lord confirms he is Elijah why did John not realise it was it the spirit of Elijah speaking through John and John did not know it.
Do you think there will be another Elijah before the second coming or has he already come  in the great revivals of the past.

Love and Peace

Possible because he was being humble and not boasting about himself, or possible because he genuiely did not know.

Why should there be yet another prophet now that Jesus has been and we await his return.

There is no need of any great revelations for we know what we have to do. That is obey Jesus.

So you are saying that prophesy is no longer needed in this @David St Ives post

The bible a prophetic  word and you are a prophet John because you are posting a prophetic word upon your own life

we must have faith
