Mantles and Influence – Nathan Shaw
This generation will be marked by an unprecedented release of mantles from heaven. These mantles will be used to halt the plans of the enemy and establish God’s government on the earth. One of the clearest biblical examples of the influence of a mantle is the prophet Elijah. Elisha also carried Elijah’s mantle (2 Kings 2:1-15). These two prophets were feared and respected by kings and people alike. David received a mantle from God when Samuel anointed him to be king of Israel (2 Samuel 16:13). David was still young when this happened. He didn’t become king until many years later. In the meantime his life was shaped by the mantle he carried. Mantles carry authority, movement and revelation.
