I am a big fan of yours! How would the modern-day Elijah know himself to be Elijah? Would he have powers and be able to accurately prophecy?
Well, you must be a fan because you’re one of my best customers (and I appreciate your support).
I think it’s pretty safe to say, that when the real prophet Elijah comes he will know himself to be the promised Elijah of the end times because God will tell him. He is a prophet after all! Note that John the Baptist, knew who was here in John 1:23:
John 1:22-23 (HCSB) — 22 “Who are you, then?” they asked. “We need to give an answer to those who sent us. What can you tell us about yourself?” 23 He said, “I am a voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord—just as Isaiah the prophet said.”
Since he was a forerunner of the final Elijah, I believe the same pattern will be followed.
And, yes, he will have powers and be able to accurately prophesy as I believe I said in my book (at least I believe I did, but I’m beginning to doubt I said it clearly since you said you read my book on Elijah twice yet don’t seem to know this).

Among white evangelical Christian adults, a whopping 46% believed this. Yet eight years later Jesus still has not returned.
