From the desk of Steve Shultz:
God is NOT done with America...there is great hope for our nation. You'll be encouraged by this latest word by John Mark Pool. Prayer and repentance on our part makes all the difference, so let's keep praying for our great nation.
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!
Word For the Year 2013: "The Year of Spiritual Revolution!"
Merriam-Webster's Dictionary: a sudden, radical, or complete change; also a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, especially one made suddenly.
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11:12
Revolution Caused Freedom To Ring
Our nation was founded by wise, brave leaders who decided to start a country free from tyrannical rulers and oppression. America has those grass root values as our foundation.
The Lord clearly told me that we are going back to the basics of the spirit of spiritual revolution which gave birth to the United States of America, founded as "one nation under God." This nation's birth came at a great cost, yet it was nothing like the cost of Calvary's Cross for our spiritual freedom.
Society lost its moral and guiding compass to be a godly nation to serve idols of pleasure rather than the heart of our Father. In 2013 we will begin returning to the heart of our founding fabric – a revolt from spiritual and moral oppression to a passionate, intimate relationship with God and true spiritual freedom.
Jesus Was the Lead Revolutionary Pioneer of His Day
This spiritual revolution will not just be sparked by the results of the darkness that many people recognize is around us (wickedness, corruption, and idolatry), but will also be caused by the core reason of religious rules forced on those who are supposed to be fulfilled by the New Covenant of Love and Great Grace! In 2013 the true Bride of Christ will have eyes and ears opened to the need for purity and allow God to prepare us for the coming of Jesus Christ.
We will see the youth crying out for the truth that only Jesus Christ can offer through a grace-based relationship. The spiritual revolution we will experience, starting this year, is an ever-increasing violent faith-attack against "religious spirits."
The real spiritual revolutionary war is the kingdom of darkness against the Kingdom of God! We will trust God with great faith knowing God always wins! It's a spiritual revolution that will help bring us into the purpose of God for our lives and completely expose evil in 2013.
The Glory of God In 2013 Will Expose and Deal With Evil In High Places
But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." Ephesians 5:13-14
• The Bride of Christ will awaken, eyes of the spiritually blinded will open, ears will finally hear, and yokes of complacency will break at the altar of God's great grace.
• God will reveal all evil in high places hidden in the dark; they will be exposed to the pure light of God and the enemy will be blinded.
• We will see millions of young people running into the great love of God for a passionate, intimate relationship.
The Lord is raising up leaders to demonstrate by God's Holy Spirit and Word that God will supernaturally "turn the enemy at the gate"!
He will be a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. Isaiah 28:6
For thus says the LORD of hosts, "Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory," says the LORD of hosts. ..."The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former," says the LORD of hosts, "and in this place I will give peace," declares the LORD of hosts." Haggai 2:6-7, 9 (NASB)
...Then Haggai said, "That is how it is with this people and this nation," says the LORD. Everything they do and everything they offer is defiled... I will overthrow royal thrones and destroy the power of foreign kingdoms. I will overturn their chariots and riders. The horses will fall, and their riders will kill each other." Haggai 2:14, 22 (NLT)
We can certainly expect to see natural and spiritual shaking in our nation and in every part of this land until America returns to our spiritual roots and a passionate love for God. The Lord God will do the shaking, and what remains is His forever.
Holy Fear and Awe of God Is Returning To His People
We are about to experience the greatest move of God this world has ever seen. This will be marked as a season of the apostles combined with the prophetic movement to produce the most unstoppable force of God with signs, wonders and miracles ever seen by humans. We are not moving indoors, but instead this move of God will be taken outdoors and on the streets.
There will be a resurgence of great outdoor meetings. People will begin to gather in parks, public meeting places, houses of prayer, and will worship God without ceasing. For this mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit, true worshippers and hungry hearts will come to public meetings and not be able to leave. Many people will be filled with the anointing of Holy Ghost fire, and mighty miracles will happen before the eyes of the world!
• Media will finally film the miraculous, showing this nation and the world God's amazing miracles.
• Children's camps will spring up in rural places and the youth everywhere will demonstrate unprecedented prophetic gifts, miracles, signs and wonders.
• Apostolic and prophetic teams will travel across America and the world; we will see nations turn to God in a day.
• Many occult workers will be invaded by the light of God's glory and be won over to Jesus Christ.
• There will be many spontaneous outpourings of God's Spirit.
What the Enemy Meant For Bad, God Is Turning For Good
As far as I am concerned, God turned into good what you meant for evil. He brought me to the high position I have today so I could save the lives of many people. Genesis 50:20
When America seemingly chose the plan of evil over the plan of God, I asked the Lord for a word, and He clearly said to me, "It is not over yet; I am not through with America!"
This is going to be a year that initiates the greatest spiritual turnaround our nation has ever experienced! Just like with Joseph's life, the past experiences taught us that God brings good from evil for those who trust and love Him. Trust the Lord now and experience the greatest breakthrough and a new life in God like never before. It is not over for America yet! The true Bride of Christ will be purified, blessed and prepared for Jesus' return.
