ACTIVATING YOUR SPIRITUAL MANTLE

2 Kings 2:8,9,13 – “And Elijah took his MANTLE and wrapped it together and smote the waters….And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy Spirit be upon me….He took up also the MANTLE of Elijah that fell from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. And He took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters.”

The word “mantle” means, “That which is thrown on or around–a physical covering.” An actual mantle, cloak or robe, is an article of clothing. It is typically large and loose-fitting. This long outer garment or topcoat was in all probability the mantle worn by Elijah and then Elisha in II Kings 2:8-14.

One of the most powerful of Bible stories, centered around a mantle, has a profound prophetic significance for us today. God wants to “throw” on us, and “throw” around us, a new, more complete spiritual mantle! It’s time for us to do what Elisha did.
It’s time to ask and receive our new mantle. It’s time for the “Doubling” to take place in our personal ministry to others also!
It’s Time to Put On Your New Spiritual Mantle!

God wants to be your clothier. He wants to clothe you with your custom made, custom-fitted, spiritual MANTLE–all the power, gifting, and authority God has for you. It’s time for you to become like Elisha.

ASPECTS OF YOUR NEW MANTLE

1. Your new mantle is unique…no one else can successfully receive and effectively wear your anointing or mantle like you.

2. Your new mantle is all-inclusive…it contains everything you need to walk in the full power, gifting and authority of God for your life. Your mantle represents your spiritual DNA–who you really are or who you are to become. It contains all the spiritual resources necessary for you to walk out your DESTINY in Christ.

3. Your new mantle must be activated–Elisha immediately used his new mantle to “smote the waters.” You need to activate your mantle today. How? Look for new opportunities to use this new power of God in your life.

Today, right now, ask God for your new personalized MANTLE–to outfit you with it. Ask Him to be your clothier. It’s time for you to experience what Elisha did–to get your new and even more powerful mantle. Amen!
