Mantles Given To Elijah Will Also Be Given To End Times Believers- A 1985 Prophetic Vision Given To Maurice Sklar

Visions from the Dallas, TX Revival (May-June, 1985)

Dear Friends,

These are the visions I received from the Holy Spirit during the Dallas, TX revival in the summer of 1985.

Visions of the End Time Ministry of Elijah

Then I saw a vision of the prophet Elijah. I saw his whole ministry flash in front of Me like a very fast film.

Then I saw him anoint Elisha with a double portion and I watched all the miracles take place in Elisha’s ministry.

Then suddenly, also in a very fast panoramic way, I saw John the Baptist’s ministry and heard his bold preaching in the wilderness.

Then I saw Yeshua come to him and receive the miracle mantle from John the Baptist when the Holy Spirit came upon Him.

Then I saw a very quick succession of those from the early church that carried this same mantle, only much smaller.

I saw miracle ministries of many “saints” and holy men and women in the middle ages. I saw revival fires start first in Italy and then in France. Then they started in England, followed by eastern Europe and then I saw all of Germany lit from north to south with many fires during Luther’s reformation.

This then swept throughout all of Europe and then was carried by ship into many nations. Then America was lit with this same glorious fire and blazed brightly for some time. Then I saw what I knew to be the Pentecostal outpouring and it hit in California and quickly spread throughout the world.

Then I heard a voice say, “This is the beginning of the latter rain that shall bring in the harvest of the nations. It shall last one hundred years. My glory shall cover the earth like the waters cover the sea. Many shall taste and see that I am good. They shall know My grace and blessings.”

Then suddenly, I saw one man with grey hair and a beard. He was on a ship going from England to America. I saw an angel come with a huge mantle and it came upon his shoulders.

I heard a voice saying, “This is the mantle of Elijah for the harvest of the nations.”

Then I saw this man preaching in the mid west in America in a large city and then in a smaller city. Miracles and healings burst forth from him. Then I heard him say, “The Lord has told me that I am Elijah to come”.

After that, I saw a darkness overtake this man and soon that glorious light that was in him went out. Then I saw two angels come and remove that huge mantle and robe off of this man.

Then I saw a man on his knees crying out in despair. He was poor and was freezing in a little house and it was snowing like a blizzard outside. His wood stove finally went out and he huddled under a blanket trying to keep warm. Then I saw this same man standing at a grave site where I somehow knew that his wife and children were buried. He was crying until he couldn’t cry anymore.

Then I saw that same man get up and start to preach in what looked like a small country church that was red brick. Then I saw him kneeling again in prayer in front of a large oak tree praying and he said, “Lord I give you my life. Do whatever you want with me.”

Then I saw two angels come with that same huge mantle that was on that other man with the long cape. I knew that it was this same mantle of Elijah. They put it on him and he wept and wept. One of the angels said, “I will stay with him so that he can carry this. It is too heavy for him alone.”

Then I saw this man suddenly light up like a flare and burn so brightly that wherever he went from then on throughout the earth, revival started everywhere. It came out of his mouth and just set everyone on fire.

Then I saw this man one day say, “The Lord has told me that I am Elijah to come. I must now teach all that I know.” He opened his bible and as he did, I saw a snake rise up out of it. It looked like a green cobra. It began to speak instead of him. At first, it only appeared for a little while and would disappear. But then, it grew larger and larger and coiled around him. I could no longer see the blazing flare-like torch that he carried. I couldn’t even see the beautiful mantle on him. The angel could no longer stay, so another angel appeared and they lifted that mantle off of him and ascended into the sky.

Then I saw that electronic web again covering the earth like in the first vision.

I heard a voice say, “Who will go for me to prepare the way for My coming?” Then I saw a number of young men and women who began to cry out in prayer. Then I saw hundreds of angels coming to the earth with mantles very similar to the one on the two men. They began to multiply until there were thousands of men and women clothed with these. They were lit up like small stars, they shone so brightly.

Then I saw the earth begin to light up wherever they went like a Christmas tree.

Then I heard a voice say, “I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. This is the fullness of the prophet’s ministry for the last days. It shall surely come.”

Then I saw a refining fire begin in both the church, in the Jewish people and in the nation of Israel. I saw a bride coming down the center of a church and I heard a voice say, “My bride has made herself ready. I am now coming for her to take her away. Come away, By Beloved.”

Then I saw the earth again and I saw these same mantles falling back into the earth being carried by hundreds and thousands of angels. They fell upon many Jewish people and I saw them going forth and prophesying very boldly. Fire came out of their mouths and then I saw terrible destruction, plagues and earthquakes and famines and even more nuclear bombs going off. I saw the sun grow red from the pollution and radiation from the atmosphere. Then I saw all the mantles converging upon the nation of Israel from every corner of the earth. Suddenly they all came together in Jerusalem and came back into that same huge mantle that was there at the first.

I then saw a fiery red chariot come into the earth and descend upon Jerusalem. Elijah got out of it and I heard his booming voice say, “Prepare to meet thy God O earth, earth, earth! Woe unto you, for destruction is come upon you.” As he was saying this, that mantle came back upon him and he stood under it once again as he had done in the Bible.

Everywhere he turned, fire came out of his mouth and destroyed the earth in twelve directions as it went through the twelve gates and out into the world. Then after this, I heard him say, “I am now finished with the work that I was ordained to do. Take me home, O Lord of hosts!” Then he was suddenly killed and fell down on the ground, where he remained for three days as the whole world watched in glee and awe. Then, he suddenly came to life again and stood up on his feet, and that fiery chariot came and he got into it and ascended into the sky.

I did not know the bible as well in those days as I do now. I was very confused about these visions and they were very troubling to me.

But the Lord said to me, “This shall be sealed into your spirit until the appointed time. Then you shall release its message for all who will hear. Some will hear, many will not. You will be a part of many hundreds of prophets that I have set apart for the final hour to prepare the way for My coming. Those that have ears to hear will receive and My Bride will surely make herself ready. She must receive the refining fire of Elijah and her beautiful garments. She shall be without spot or wrinkle and be adorned with her wedding garments and glorious jewels from heaven. For her wedding day is soon upon her.”

Then I saw an old fashioned oil lamp that was lit with a flame coming out of the top of it. Then it suddenly became ten lamps that were lined up side by side. The five on the left of me suddenly started to flicker. The flame got smaller and smaller until finally it just fizzled and went out. But the lamps on the other side were fed by a lamp stand that they were connected to that was previously hid in the darkness. They just burned brighter and brighter until finally I heard these words, “Come up here and escape the wrath to come, for you are found worthy. Behold, the bridegroom comes!” Then they all disappeared.

The Lord then said to me, “Half of those that say they know me in the time of the end are liars. They have never been lit with the fire from heaven. They are burning with the strange fires of Mystery Babylon. They only pretend to know Me. Their lamp shall be put out in outer darkness and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. But those who are Mine shall shine forever and burn with the brightness of my glory as the stars. For they are lit from My throne and fed with my oil and shall never go out. These are My precious ones – My glorious Bride who shall always be true and faithful to Me. It is for her that I died and rose again. It is for her that I am returning in the midnight hour. Tell her that I have not forgotten her! She is My beloved and I am hers! I love her with an everlasting love. I shall surely catch her up to My throne where she will rule and reign with Me in glory forever and ever at My right hand. Amen.”

This is the account of the visions and visitation that I received in Dallas, Texas in the revival meetings during May and June of 1985, as best as I could write it. It is only now that I can share the fullness of those experiences because I have been released to do so by the Holy Spirit. May He add His blessing and anointing of fire to these words.

May you be found among His faithful, wise virgins when He appears in the midnight hour. May your lamp be shining brightly, being lit with the oil of the double portion of Elijah.

Shalom and God bless you now, Beloved!
