From the desk of Steve Shultz:
We are truly living in exciting times with the Lord pouring Himself out. Yes, there is no question the world is getting darker and will continue to. So how much more will God be pouring Himself through US. Again the theme heard for this year is that it's a time of great harvest. Be encouraged in this word by Joan Hunter. Her ministry sees many signs, miracles and healings.
Also, would you do me a favor? Please help us keep sending you words by buying as many prophetic items as you are able to from the Elijah List at this link: www.elijahshopper.com. You might save a buck by buying it online through Amazon, but you'll help us build the Kingdom more effectively if you buy things through us. Will you consider that "proposal"? Thank you for supporting us!
A Year of Great Harvest and Love Poured Out
What an exciting year 2012 was. We saw many miracles in so many areas – body, mind, soul, spirit and finances. God released healing in all those areas all throughout the Body of Christ.
I feel very strongly that 2013 is going to be even more powerful and exciting for the Body of Christ. As we move from the year 2012 – the year of alignment, government, ruling and reigning, taking back what the enemy has stolen – it is time to move on into the New Year and see what God has for us.
This is going to be a year of greater HARVEST – harvesting on what we have seeded for over the years. There is going to be a greater outpouring of power and anointing than ever before. It is going to be a year of the GREAT transference of wealth. God is opening up the windows of Heaven to pour out blessings to fund ALL that He has asked us to do.
A Year of Love Poured Out
This year is going to be better than the former – like as in 12 cookies, we get a baker's dozen (13) – He is throwing in some extra for us. More than enough. Abundantly, above all that we could ask, dream or imagine. (That is a lot in my book!)
The world looks at 13 as unlucky. Some airlines don't have a row 13 on planes, many elevators don't have a 13th floor, and Friday the 13th is seen as unlucky, etc. The number itself stands for unlucky, devastation, destruction, confusion and many other negative things. This is what the world is looking at.
Let's look at what God says about the number 13. The best example is 1 Corinthians 13 – that is the chapter on love. God is going to pour out His love on us in 2013. This is going to be a year of restoration. Restoring us to our first love of Him first, then others. He is going to restore families, estranged children, lost children and relatives. This is a time of them coming into the Kingdom faster than we could ever fathom.
This is a year of those who have prayed for God to send a mate – this is the year of that prayer being answered. This is the year for those who have been unable to conceive – they will bring forth children.
This is the year of the can'ts being made cans. This is the year that if the doctor gives people no hope, God does and many people will be completely healed. Limbs and eyes will be restored and any other body part that is needed will be made manifest in bodies.
This is a time of reaching out to God like never before to have a true intimate relationship with Him. Getting down to business. A season to spend more time with Him, more time in the Word, making places in our homes for devoted and private time with Him.
This is a time of experiencing things with God like never before. Many of them will be unique experiences. Not based on what others have written about – it will be a whole new realm. It will be so unbelievable that when it is shared few will believe.
Remember you need to line up with the WORD, not the WORLD!
Decree and Declare
Everything we put our hand to do shall prosper! Deuteronomy 30:9, The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good.
The blessings of God are running and overtaking us! Deuteronomy 28:2, And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.
God is giving you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4, Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Here's one of my favorites - Ephesians 2:7, And so God can always point to us as examples of the incredible wealth of His favor and kindness toward us, as shown in all He has done for us through Christ Jesus.
I want God to point to me as an example of His favor, kindness and wealth in ALL He has done for me. Let Him point to you. We are going to be a sign and a wonder to all around.
Our future! Jeremiah 29:11-13, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will hear you. You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.
Declare and decree these over you daily.
I look forward to ALL God has in this new and exciting year ahead for ALL of us.
Blessings beyond comprehension,
