So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him (1 Kings 19:19, NASB).

I love you and miss you my friend, my sister. Ya know when I met you; I saw God’s hands all over your life. I saw many things surrounding you the few times we saw each other, but I didn’t know what they were until now. The radiance of the inner and outer beauty you displayed was not of this world, this radiance can only come from the one above. Jesus has robed you in His glorious love and adorned you with the most precious of gems the gifts of the spirit. He is never far from you, His wings always surrounding you. The Lord sings over you and when you see the stars twinkling above like diamonds in the sky, this is all of heaven rejoicing with Jesus that you are his. Jennifer you have a pure innocent love for Christ, the truth is in you and you will go on to set many free in the name of Jesus. Obedience is showing God your love for Him, you have done this willingly, praising Jesus every step of the way. Because you have surrendered unto him all that you have, God’s favor, peace and wisdom is being poured out on you like thick honey. God is bringing you into a new season, a deeper revelation of things to come for his people. He is blessing you as the firstborn. Until now you have been like Esther, your destiny is the mantle of Elijah (Jennifer could this be right? I typed it as I heard it; did I hear the Lord correctly? Has He been talking to you about this?) I almost deleted this last statement my darling sister as I don’t want to speak something over you that is not of the Lord. But I know that I changed the spelling to the first Elijah from the 2nd Elisha. Let’s pray about this, not that this is bad, however, this is huge. But I know from everything the Lord had me type that you’re ready for this or he wouldn't have put it in my heart or my imagination.
Thank you for being so faithful to the Lord, Jennifer.

Note: In 1998, I received an Elijah Mantle from Betty Leach, Bend, Oregon, USA. Lori did not know of this gift. The Holy Spirit was revealing to her that an individual may have more than one mantle at a time. As in Lori's vision-prayer she saw an Esther Mantle, and an Elijah Mantle and an Elisha Mantle simultaneously, because the mantles from the Holy Spirit are for ministering to the body of Christ.
Elijah took his mantle and folded it together and struck the waters, and they were divided here and there, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground (2 Kings 2:8, NASB).
