En nadat hulle deur was, se Elia vir Elisa: Begeer wat ek vir jou moet doen, voordat ek van jou af weg geneem word. En Elisa antwoord: Laat dan n dubbele deel van u gees op my kom.
Every Christian has 2 spirits one which is his own, and one from God. Thou the spirit given by God, you are able to perform the spiritual gives which are bestow upon you. The spirit of Elijah is a type of spirit from God bestow on a chosen individual, and not Elijah himself.
The enemies of Gods children also has two spirits, as you can see that the priest of Egypt was able to copy the miracles that Moses preformed before the plagues, but on a smaller scale, and in the end times the false prophets will be able to perform great miracles.
The spirits used by the enemies of God are the following: Pagan religious like those from Egypt used the spirits of the fallen angels whom fornicated with the daughters man aka Ancient Aliens. Some false prophets in some African Christian churches use the spirits of their for-fathers to do miracles which are not from God, some self- worshipers like the followers of the Secret and light workers, uses the spirits of angels cast down from heaven with Lucifer because they rebelled against God, this give them the ability to manifest their own desire instead of the desire of Gods will. The false prophets in the end times will use the spirit of Lucifer himself.
False prophets are great deceivers and are extremely difficult to identify, here are a few possible tell tail signs: 1) Jesus said we may ask in his name but pray to his father false prophets will request that you do not pray to the father 2) A false prophet may use the ability of the spirit whom they may have to glorify themselves instead of God. 3) A false prophet my claim that his abilities come form himself or herself, but the bible teaches that the flesh has no power. 4) The false prophet may confess that spirits are relying information to them instead of the spirit of God.
