In Isaiah there is a picture of a breakdown in Yahweh’s order for the family: “I will give
children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave
himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable… As for my people children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths .” (Isaiah 3:4-5, 12)
This is a picture of the end times with a complete inversion of leadership. In the last two verses of Malachi, Yahweh emphasized family order. “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5-6)
When moving into deliverance, you must obey the principles of Yahweh’s order for the
home and for the assembly. Deliverance cannot be held unless we do it according to the
dictates of Yahweh’s Word. This calls for a greatdeal of dying to self because of the nature of the society in which we live today. This all goes back to the assembly, for if it is not in order, then society is out of order. Without order in the home, there will be none in the assembly. Yahweh is sending forth an Elijah spirit in these last days to bring order out of chaos. At the same time the vicious Jezebel spirit was raging through Israel, Yahweh sent an Elijah forth. As it was Yahweh’s way in those days, so it is today.
