From the desk of Steve Shultz:
Just like Jesus did, we go through seasons of Kingdom life. There are times of hiddenness, times of rapid advancement, times of warfare and times of "strategy" changes.
Jesus is our example, but so are many others such as Joseph. Joseph was always in the will of God but his location (his address) and his assignment changed a number of times.
Such is the case with us.
God told Philip (through an angel) to go down and talk to the Ethiopian eunuch. Soon he baptized this man and suddenly, he was whisked away in the spirit to his next assignment. We don't know what that assignment was but it was in another city, miles away.
Don't be too surprised if some of you have an "assignment change" this year.

"February Prophetic Word:
Radical Adjustments & Reassignments Coming"
The Heavenly Adjustment Department
There have been some changes in many people's callings. New assignments were released from the heavenly adjustment department. This will be the start of some major realignments and reassignments coming over the next few months.
Many people have been experiencing serious levels of discouragement and warfare. I have been praying daily for a breakthrough about this for myself and for others.
On January 16, God spoke to me that my case in Heaven had been reviewed and an adjustment offer had been released. I have never heard this before and it took me by surprise. I also heard that this was happening to many people right now.
New Offers Being Given
I was told by God that after reviewing my ministry, I was being offered a choice. I could continue in the current position that I occupy in the Kingdom of God, or I could take a special assignment that would produce more results in the Kingdom with regard to the upcoming revival.
For years I have been a "Courts of Heaven Reporter." I have had to get up daily at 4:00 AM to journal and write out what I am hearing from God. But this changed last year when I was promoted to a "Courts of Heaven Prophet," which comes with a lot of interaction in the heavenly realm and being part of counsel meetings similar to what is described in Zechariah 3. It also brings extreme levels of spiritual warfare. (Photo: "Enter In" by Jennifer Page via elijahshopper.com)
Something changed for me again last month. I heard the Lord say, "I need you in the streets to raise up an army for Me." I knew that if I took this new assignment, then the supernatural encounters that I have been having daily would reduce dramatically. I would still be a prophet, but my assignment and position would change. I knew that what appears to be a demotion on earth is indeed a promotion in God's eyes.
"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time." 1 Peter 5:6 NIV
Jesus took a major demotion when He left His place of glory and came to earth to save us all. He will promote the humble and the Lord is saying over and over right now that: "Due time is overdue." There is a backlog of repayment and unanswered prayers coming to many people.
I was given a choice and the Lord said He would bless me either way. I chose the new assignment, which is actually an upgraded version of my original calling for prophetic evangelism. I have to admit that the morning after I decided to take the new assignment, it felt really strange to me as things changed majorly. I was still hearing God, but I suddenly had limits to my heavenly interactions.
But when we make decisions that will help grow the Kingdom, we will be blessed.
"And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for My sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life." Matthew 19:29 NIV
Safety and Blessings
God has hidden many people away in prison like Joseph in Genesis 41. Joseph was released suddenly and repaid for all his pain and suffering. The prison was not a fun place to be, but it was a place of hope and safety to him as he waited for the fulfillment of the dreams God had given to him as a child (Genesis 37). God spoke to me that He is beginning to call forth the prisoners of hope.
"Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles." Zechariah 9:12 NLT
This is a time to press in to the Lord in prayer and get ready for your marching orders that will come starting in March. God is going to start releasing the prisoners of hope. He is going to bring new hope and use you to bring hope to people in need of His love.
So get your hopes up because you are going to be repaid double for all your trouble.
Strategic Season of Dreams
February will mark the release of strategic dreams from God. Watch for dreams and night visitations as higher-level revelation is going to start pouring out to you. In some cases, you might not remember these types of dreams or visitations. The reason for this is that God is going to reveal it to you in a way that will hide it from the enemy.
During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of Heaven and said: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him." Daniel 2:19-22 NIV
God is releasing wisdom and power and concealing strategies and revelation. This will help hide your promotion and plans from the enemy and bring you less warfare. Times and seasons are changing quickly so be aware that the way you currently do things might not work in the new season that is upon us now.
The Lord is releasing deep and hidden things over the next month. He is going to reveal the plans of the enemy against you and bring them into the light. Watch for a change in affiliations and locations to start unfolding.
Prophetic Dream: Pilots and Season Change
I had a prophetic dream last month and in this dream, I had been promoted and was working for an airport. I watched as jets were diverted into a remote area for landing due to construction. I was told that this was going to go on for the next several months. It looked very muddy, slippery and dangerous. I watched one plane that was full of pilots who had been through so much stress that when they landed, they had all passed out and were asleep.
I went to the remote area where they were deplaning. I wanted to bring them water because I knew they were dehydrated. The water bins were all half-empty and there was no fresh water for them. I found two bottles, but by the time I found them, they had all started getting transportation to the terminal. My new supervisor (an angel) told me not to worry about it. I was really concerned that these pilots needed water, but they were all moving quickly with a new purpose.
Then I talked to one of the pilots who looked like Tom Cruise. He told me that he needed to really pay attention to the flight process now and plan ahead in order to avoid storms and things like this. My sense was that the season had changed and things were radically different now, so we can no longer go on "autopilot."
This dream shows us that we are in a time of transition and uncertainty, but God is aware of our needs and He has us covered. The unconscious pilots represent leaders that are now coming out of a difficult time. They are waking up to a new calling and they will not be able to do things the way we have in the past.
Get ready for things to start happening much more quickly! Get ready for deeper dreams in February and for your marching orders to come starting in March! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
