Intro From Julie A. Smith:
Last week God told me that He is pouring out "fresh oil" in this hour and the word He emphasized is "fresh" – meaning it's new. I know many in the Body are feeling out of their comfort zone right now because God is moving you into something new, bringing radical change, which usually means there's a faith walk involved.
Much of Eileen Fisher's words ministered and resonated inside of me, and there is one part in particular that I feel is for the majority right now: "You will come to know who you were called to be and why you are here."
I know He's speaking to many about this now, and a word like this comes with radical change as you'll read below. Some of you are going to walk into something so new and radical that it will be a sign to others to move forward as well. Your change will cause others to move into theirs.
When God moves you into something new – it's not always easy but necessary to walk into the fresh future and assignment He has for you. As you walk into the new, remember that He is faithful. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it (1 Thessalonians 5:24).
Make sure and share this word with others – it's a must read... and tell your friends to SUBSCRIBE to the Elijah List right here: www.elijahlist.com/subscribe.

"Fresh Visions, Fresh Dreams, Fresh Anointing, Fresh Strength"
Fresh! Fresh! Fresh!
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on April 23, 2013 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
I heard the Lord say, "That is My desire also; to fall fresh on you. I don't bring stale manna. I want to give you freshness – fresh visions, fresh dreams, fresh anointing, fresh strength. I am not the day-old God. I'm the God of the Bread of Life. Fresh. Fresh. Fresh. Fresh. I'm throwing away stale visions. I'm throwing away stale dreams."
He said, "Fresh anointings; fresh visions; fresh work; fresh ideas; fresh of My presence; fresh provision; fresh understanding; fresh wisdom – freshness in My Word; freshness in My presence. Fresh. Fresh."
He said, "In My freshness, there is joy; there is strength; there is health; there is understanding; freshness of wind upon the gifts. Fresh – fresh relationships; fresh alignments; fresh agreement – fresh."
He said, "I am taking off the old that would pull you down, and I'm giving you the 'fresh' – this will bring you the strength to lift you up. I am causing circumstances to come down and freshness to arise."
He said, "Fresh bread rises up trying to reach its full potential. I am putting the 'yeast' in you tonight – the anointing of My presence. And I'm going to cause you to come to the heat of My Spirit, and the fire of My Spirit, and bring forth fresh manna. For you have baked in My presence, and My presence will come forth from a fresh heart," says the Lord your God.
The Lord said "I'm going to release a cloud over you right now. I'm going to dry your tears, for," He said, "I have seen your tears in secret and I want to heal your heart. Pain would bring torment; disappointment would bring depression. My Spirit bares life. Let My Spirit bare witness to your spirit that I have come to give you a new life. Old things have passed away, let them go. Let them go, so the freshness can come forth by My Spirit. For in Me there is life."
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on April 30, 2013 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
The Lord says, "Breathe in My presence."
He said, "Let My presence breathe over you. For," He said, "just as I blew over My own, I caused the Spirit of the Lord to come upon them. He made a way where there seemed to be no way, and so today I will make a way where there is no way, for I am going to do a new thing.
"My Body is going to go through a radical change – radical change. It will be so radical that the world will know it is My Body, for Mine will be so set apart from the world that they will seem peculiar. For I am calling My own to come into holiness. I am calling My own to let go of the past, for what was, was.
"Many of My own are living as if I have not risen, and they are tarrying in the garden, in the tomb. For have they not yet heard the good news? I am seated in Heavenly places interceding for My own, I have sent My Spirit to empower them, I have sent My Spirit so that you would be sent out with power that would be fresh from on high, for I am about to bring down the old works of man. You will hear of crumble, after crumble, after crumble, for man is reaching from soul to soul. But My Spirit draws from spirit to Spirit.
"Cling to My Spirit, and let My Spirit cling to you. For in this you will find the fullness of joy. You will come to know who you were called to be and why you are here. For My Spirit is wooing you into a new assignment. Assignments of the old, let go; let men go about men's business. The assignments of the new – My Spirit will bring them forth in a fresh wind, for I am going to cause My wind to blow staleness off of My Bride. For she has been slumbered, and as she has been slumbering, there has been wave after wave after wave of apathy that has been causing her to slumber.
"I am going to address apathy in My Body, and I'm going to command it to bow its knee. I'm going to cause a holy zeal to rise up in the hearts of My own – to where their hearts will burn within them with a fresh fire. They will not look to one another, but they will look to Me, and only to Me, for they will come forth with contagious fire in their eyes, contagious fire in their hearts, contagious fire in their feet and their hands. And what they put their hand to, so My fire shall set ablaze, for I am calling My own to be fire starters.
"For I will say the world is going to become colder and colder toward the Good News, but My people are going to become the burning bush. They will be ablaze with the presence of My Spirit. They will be ablaze with the warmth of My love. They will be ablaze with the vision that I will plant deep within their spirit. When they look at man's vision, it will be something of the past, for they will come out of Egypt, and they will come to the mountain. And I will download their assignments, Spirit to spirit, and they will know it has been given by the hand of the Lord their God, for it will be written by My finger," says the Lord your God.
The Good Shepherd Is About Your Business; He Has Not Left You Alone
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on May 14, 2013 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
I heard the Lord say, "I am the Good Shepherd. I do know My sheep, and I call them by name. I am not the shepherd that comes and leads his sheep into confusion and doubt. I am not the shepherd that puts barbed wire in their thought life, nor upon their feet, to where they are misled. But I am the Shepherd of their soul; that heals their mind, their body, their soul, their spirit. I am the Shepherd that goes before them, but I am also the Shepherd that encircles them, and captivates their heart with My love.
"For," He said, "I am going to pour out My love upon you with 'renewness' – 'renewness' of your mind, My 'renewness' to where I come and renew you. The newness of faith, the newness of a thought life, newness in you, to where I said even in My Word, 'I have come that you may have abundant life,' and, 'I make all things new.'
"Some of you have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting. And you have cried out, and you have said 'Lord, where are You? Where are You?"'
He said, "As I was about My Father's business, so I am about your business. Do not think that I have left you alone, to mind your own business. I have not left you alone. I am bringing you unto Myself. I am taking the thorns off of you, to where I will put over you a crown of favor. To where the favor you will need will be the favor you will receive. To where you will walk, and you will walk with dignity, and security. And you will walk with hope that will no longer be deferred so that your heart becomes sick, but that you will walk in My hope, My new hope. For I will not have a hopeless people who will think they have a God of abandonment. For I have not abandoned My own; I have adopted My own.
Learn To Rest In His Goodness
"Learn to rest in My goodness. Learn My facets: I am good. I am kind. I am gentle. And I am long-suffering. For I have allowed some circumstances, even around you. And it has to cause others to grow. It is not to punish you. It is to test you – to show your own heart before Me, to where you could come closer and closer, because you will be drawn to Me out of necessity.
"I will take you any way I can get you. I will take you out of necessity, and I will take you out of abandonment. For I have taken you unto Myself. I have locked you away into My heart. And I will not allow the enemy to come, to badger, to torment, to accuse you, and to accuse Me.
"Command Me to come in as the Lion of Judah, to call those voices to be still and naught. Allow Me to come in as the Resurrected One to where death would try to come in and set up housekeeping; but My resurrection will come and turn over the tables, because of My glory.
"Call Me to come in as the One who multiplied the fishes and the loaves of bread. I am the One who will be a financier and multiplier for all of your needs. Know that I'm about to move upon My people. For My people are coming out of a season of dryness. For they have been in the wilderness because I have been dealing with hidden sin. Not only in My own but in hidden places in the hearts of others.
If You Lay It Down, He Will Make It His Business
"Honor the free will of man, as I too have chosen to honor the free will of man. For I say to you, your free will will cause you to come closer to Me; just as other's free will will cause them to turn away and run.
"Choose Me. Lay down at My feet, right now, what you are carrying. Lay it down. Lay it down. As you have laid it down, I have picked it up. It will become My business. Give Me time. My ways are not your ways. Yes, they are higher. But I have seen your tears; I have seen your pain; I have seen the betrayal, and the hurt. But I am also the Eternal One who heals the hearts of His own.
"Give Me your heart, so I can start from the inside out. For I will take a stony heart – for it's been hardened and hardened by the world, by disappointment. It became hard to protect itself from pain. Let Me take your heart. Let Me cause it to become flesh, where it can beat again in My presence with love."
