Jeremiah Johnson, of Heart of the Father Ministries, has released a timely prophetic word for the Body of Christ about the emerging prophets who are coming forth in this hour. When we see prophets in the scriptures, we see people who are set apart from the multitude as a remnant. All of the true prophets in the Word are despised by many, because what they have to say offends those who are filled with rebellion. The prophets come with one goal, one vision, and one agenda. This was only to release what God was speaking to the earth at that time and season, but with the utmost obedience. Every prophet was highly persecuted and rejected for the truth they proclaimed. Jeremiah Johnson has been shown that new prophets are coming on the scene that have a “specific mandate”  from God.
Jeremiah Johnson has said that this is the time prophets are being released in the earth now to “confront and remove the spot and wrinkle from the Bride”  before Jesus returns. What is the spot and blemish Johnson is referring to? In the Old Testament, when spots and wrinkles are mentioned, it is referring to the sacrificial offerings that the High Priests offered to God (Ref. Deut. 17:1). The sacrifices were presented to God to remove sin and bring atonement, or a pardoning, of the offence (Ref. Exo. 29:36). However, God said he never wanted physical sacrifices and that they could never really take away sin (Ref. Heb. 10:4-5). Jesus is really searching for people to be a “living sacrifice” (Rom. 12:1) . This is how Jesus creates the living sacrifices He desires:
26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 
27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 
Only through the cleansing power of the Word can one become purified in their souls and be presented to Jesus as the living sacrifices he has always wanted.
Jeremiah Johnson said these prophets will be oracles of righteousness, messengers, and forerunners who are faithful to the truth no matter what it costs them . These attributes are strikingly similar to the prophet Elijah (Ref. 1Ki. 18). Not only does Johnson’s statement reference Elijah in the Old Testament, but John the Baptist (Ref. Luk. 1:17), and the Spirit of Elijah who is to come and restore all things (Ref. Matt. 17:11). The Book of Malachi is clear about the coming of Elijah the prophet at the end of the age:
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 
6 And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. 
Just as John the Baptist was God’s messenger who prepared the way of the Lord (Ref. Mar. 1:3), God is now calling for those with the Spirit of Elijah to arise now and do the same. This is not just one person, but a company of people. A remnant who are fearless and faithful to the Word of God. They are the ones who the prophet Joel speaks about; they are “great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be” (Joe. 2:2) . The Word of God, as well as the early church, are in agreement when it comes to Elijah who is to come at the end of the age. Early church father Victorinus speaks about it in his commentary on the Book of Revelation:
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God”] He speaks of Elias the prophet, who is the precursor of the times of Antichrist, for the restoration and establishment of the churches from the great and intolerable persecution. We read that these things are predicted in the opening of the Old and New Testament; for He says by Malachi: “Lo, I will send to you Elias the Tishbite, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,  Rev 7:2 “
The world is waiting for the fullness of the Spirit of Elijah to be revealed. Those that carry this spirit institute all that God has to prepare His bride, the church. This includes turning back to God in repentance (Ref. Mar. 1:4) and obtaining the cleansing Word (Ref. Eph. 5:26), that comes from a deeper understanding of the scriptures.
Jeremiah Johnson proclaimed that these emerging prophets are confrontational, radical, and “everyone just wants them to tone it down” . That is how every prophet in the Word acted because of the passion they had to be completely obedient to God. They were hated by many who ultimately took their lives because they could not take the fire that was shut up in them (Ref. Jer. 20:9). These prophets are coming forth now. They are a remnant that stand up against the majority. They do not settle for what the current-day church’s empty promises. They are fierce, strong, and they follow the Word of God without compromise. Within these emerging prophets lay the Spirit of Elijah, who are preparing the way of the Lord and will be used to restore everything that is fallen. If you have a burning hunger inside of you to be counted as one of these prophets do not wait; connect with us today.
