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.

Leading in Ministry

leadingLeading in Ministry – We all have leaders and authority figures. We have one at home, at work, in school and in church. These leaders, especially in the church, serve a purpose. God has specifically appointed them to be leaders for a reason.

We have pastors, teachers, youth leaders, worship leaders, and God chose them all. You might even be one of them. These church minsters are all serving God’s purpose. They are all under God’s prophetic ministry.

Every ruler is a minister of God. We serve so that we can do away with evil. We serve to become a terror to evil. We serve to reward good and to punish evil. However, we do not determine what is evil and what is good. Your written prophecy will highlight that within itself. Many times you will find that when you serve there will be people who will hate you for no reason at all; this comes with the package of ministry. If you are not willing to accept the package, then get out of ministry, thus you are not Leading in Ministry anymore.

Ministry requires that you go more than the extra mile, beyond the call of duty, beyond the realm in which you currently operate (Romans 13:4). Becoming a part of the prophetic ministry will challenge you, but in return you will also grow spiritually and as an individual. It will help you grow in our relationship with God. The power of prophecy will provide the necessary skills and talents that will enable you to fulfill God’s prophetic destiny.

“Do not say in your heart, after the Lord your God has thrust them out before you, ‘It is because of my righteousness that the Lord has brought me in to possess this land,’ whereas it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out before you. Not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart are you going in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and that he may confirm the word that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” –  Deuteronomy 9:4-5


It is the minister’s responsibility to execute wrath upon those who do evil, to execute wrath upon those things which are out of order, to execute wrath against those things that are not operating according to Divine law. The minister is called to execute the wrath of God. You have to be willing to execute the wrath of God and to minister judgments. How do you minister judgments? By having a standard.

Bishop Jordan and his school of prophets will help set these standards for you so that you can apply them in your ministry. You free written prophecy will reveal the things that you will need to become prosperous in your prophetic ministry.
