The Prophetic Mantle


The Prophetic Mantle: Every prophet is a reformer. Woe to the prophet-less culture, for it, has no one to tell it when it’s headed to destruction and guide it back to safety. – Wallace Henley

5The company of prophets who were at Jericho drew near to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he answered, “Yes, I know; be silent.”

2 Kings 2:5 NRSV

The Prophetic Anointing

In the Second Book of Kings, we begin to understand the value of the prophetic mantle; “He picked up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan” (2 Kgs. 2:13). The mantle itself does not have any power.

We don’t need to have an actual physical mantle today in order to receive the prophetic anointing and ministry. The prophetic mantle is figurative of the anointing that individuals believe. In the “pool,” the prophetic mantle deals with a deeper prophetic anointing than simply operating with a spiritual gift.

Like Elisha, when he picked up the mantle that Elijah left behind, believers become endowed with the anointing of the prophet when they receive the prophetic mantle.

We need to recognize that not everyone with a prophetic anointing is a prophet. There is a thin line between the two — even if it’s sometimes indiscernible, the line still spells a difference. To have a prophetic anointing means that you must bear a mantle upon your higher calling. A  pastor may be considered a prophetic pastor, a teacher may be called a prophetic teacher.

The higher calling specifically for these individuals is pastor and teacher, and the prophetic mantle is just icing on the cake, i.e. it is possible that the believer’s main calling may not be in the prophetic realm. Other examples of callings that can be strengthened by the prophetic mantle include being prophetic intercessors, prophetic counselors, prophetic evangelists, or prophetic writers.

Play Your Part

part“But speaking the truth in love, grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ : From whom the whole body fitly jointed together and compacted by that which every joint together, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:15

If you are a part of the body of Christ, there is an effective measure in you to bring you into the potential that God has ordained for the whole body. You have something to contribute. Oneness comes from Christ’s filling all things. He fills each one of us; therefore we each have a part of Him to give one another. Your Biblical prophecy lets you know which part you are in the body of Christ. Let the power of prophecy guide you.

When we look at the body of Christ, we are reminded that it is not just the body parts that are important; the joints are also vital. What is a joint? It is any place in your body where two parts come together — the knees, the elbows, the knuckles. Individual members of a body don’t mean much.

They need to be jointed together and working as part of the whole body in order for them — and for the body — to function properly. Members in the body of Christ are the same way; in order to function properly they must be brought into relationship with the rest of the body. And without them, the body will not be as effective.

Sometimes we may feel that our part is not important. Yet the Lord has placed each member of the body there for a purpose. And woe to us if we feel that we, or anyone else, is not a vital part of the body; we are then doubting God’s wisdom.
