From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
It might be asked, "What is the purpose of having a 'list' such as THE ELIJAH LIST if you don't put out specific words that help us in a real time of need?"
Such is the case here. I would be almost resistant to post a word by an American because we are too close to the situation. We have our minds all made up.
So, I'm turning to an Australian prophet who has proven herself over and over again to carry the Lord's heart on many matters.
Please don't take offense if you intend to vote for another candidate. Vote your conscience. But I honestly do feel that Lana Vawser has the mind of the Lord on this next election in the United States. (Subscribe to The Elijah List here.)

The Elijah List & Breaking Christian News
Recently I had an encounter with the Lord where He showed me an assignment of the enemy that is about to be released into the Body of Christ in the United States of America – regarding the US election that is about to take place in about a month.
Before I share this encounter with you, I want to state this and make it clear that since I felt the Lord speak of Donald Trump in this encounter, firstly – I am not releasing this word from any "political standpoint" of reviewing any policies or agendas. I am simply releasing this word from an encounter that I had with the Lord and felt a strong urgency to release it.
Secondly, considering the video released about Trump from 2005, I do want to say that the Lord DOES NOT condone sin, and by releasing this encounter I am not condoning Donald's past actions.
"Remember, LORD, Your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to Your love remember me, for You, LORD, are good." Psalm 25:6-7
I felt an urgency to publish this encounter as a warning to the Body of Christ. As I pondered this encounter in light of the recent video, I felt a stirring from the Lord not focus on the past, but what God is saying TODAY in THIS SEASON right now.
Spirits of Deception Being Released From Hell
I was standing in what looked like a "commission room" in Hell with so much darkness around. I saw the enemy and he was about to release a horde of demons upon the earth into the United States with a specific target against Believers.
What I noticed about these demonic spirits was that they had blindfolds in their hands and they were ready to "move." I asked Jesus what these demonic spirits were and He said that they were "spirits of deception."
"My people that are not pressing in for discernment and to hear My heart concerning the US election, and who I have anointed for the next Presidential term, who are not crying out for the wisdom and discernment of Heaven – they will be brought to a place right now in this season where they will be blinded by deception.
"This army that is about to be released into the Body of Christ in the USA are coming to blind people to the truth that I have anointed Donald Trump and Mike Pence, and the people of God need to hear that they need to keep pressing in for discernment – despite what the media and the 'natural world' says.
"Things are going to continue to escalate with intense pressure to push Donald Trump out, but My people need to take their place and stand with Me to see My purposes come to fruition."
Upgrade of Spiritual Insight From Heaven - PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT
The sense surrounded me that this is a very strategic moment – a time of urgency and a time to pray even more fervently. This is a sense of "laying down agendas" and simply seeking the heart of God for this new season for the nation of America that is approaching.
I actually sensed a very strong UPGRADE of SPIRITUAL INSIGHT and VISION coming to the Body of Christ in the USA regarding the "blueprints" and "destiny" for the nation of the USA that the Lord is going to release. I saw Him releasing this "sight" from a place of "surrender" and crying out to the Lord like David did in Psalm 25:4-5: "Show me Your ways, LORD, teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long."
I felt this reminder from the Lord to His people in the USA – to be praying for discernment right now and to lift their eyes up higher. Place not your eyes on "media" or the "natural" – but really continue seeking His heart. I felt such a strong sense of an "increase in onslaught" in this US election in this "last leg"; and God's people are going to need eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying more than ever before.
Seek His Heart Above All Else!
As I have sat with the Lord on this word, I have felt the Lord's heart for His people to not get "caught up" in what is going on in the "natural". The very heart of this word ultimately was I felt a call from the Lord for His people to "come up higher". To not be bound up by what is being reported or what is not being reported. The fate of a nation does not hang on MAN; it's in the hand of the Lord and the onus is on the Church right now.
I believe Jesus is calling His people, in light of everything going on in this messy situation in the USA with Clinton and Trump – to seek His heart above ALL ELSE. Put your hope in Jesus; to cry out for the Lord to bring a cleansing and a turning in this nation. To really individually continue to seek out the heart of God and ask the Spirit of God to give eye salve so there may be clear spiritual sight regarding this election and the destiny of the USA.
"Also buy white garments from Me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see." Revelation 3:18
This is not just about Donald Trump/Mike Pence; this is about the destiny and the fate of the United States of America. The Lord sees BEYOND today, and it's time to really seek His heart and His ways. This is really a time of repentance for America and calling forth the plans and purposes of God in the nation, and a surrendering of agendas to align with His ways, even when we don't understand.
It's time to stand in the gap more than ever before – for a move of God in the nation. I felt that this is a very strategic moment right now – the fate and destiny of the nation hangs in the balance. (Subscribe to The Elijah List here.)
