"Find Your Tribe and Get Inside (Under Protection)"
Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzI really found this latest word by Jo Ellen Stevens very thought-provoking...being a part of a greater Church Body is so important...ESPECIALLY when it comes to "fighting our battles."

I want to say also that it's important to be advancing the Kingdom "outside of the Church" with good works and by sharing the Gospel. But if you find yourself without a "House," I would encourage you to prayerfully consider this word as Jo Ellen shares:

It is time to find our apostolic hub and get under its protection. This will keep us from getting off into the devil's territory. We cannot fight him in the street by ourselves and we definitely can't fight him if we barely recognize him! We are about to have great revival in the highways and bi-ways, so we must learn not to fight the devil in our own strength but in God's and with the help of our tribe inside!

I pray this word encourages you AND challenges you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Find Your Tribe and Get Inside (Under Protection)"
Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN


A Dream of the Devil Coming to the Door

"So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)

I had a dream recently where someone was knocking at my door, so I went to the door and peeked out. The person standing at the door looked an awful lot like the devil! I asked him what he wanted and he said, "I would like to come in." I simply said, "No! I am sorry but you cannot come into my house."

The next thing I know, the devil began to walk down the street and I saw him walk up to a person and begin a conversation. I saw this person arguing with him and picking a fight. I realized this person didn't recognize him and was about to lose this fight. I realized that he was a lot more vulnerable being outside of the house, rather than inside. In fact, he barely recognized that it was the enemy! He thought that it was just another man.

Shut the Door, Keep Out the Devil

I believe this is a warning dream from the Lord. The first part was telling us that when someone comes knocking at your door (spiritually), look to see who it is before you open it! Then we must discern and if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it's a duck! In this case, it looked like the enemy! Then we must learn to say, "NO!" No, you cannot come in my house! No, you can't come into my church and no, you can't come into my family! Then keep the door closed! Whatever you do, keep it closed! Let your no mean NO! The enemy will flee after you, so by the power of the Holy Spirit, resist his attempts and will move on down the road!

We are in a season when the enemy, through much in-house persecution, is trying to get people away from the House of the Lord. By that I mean, away from true people of God (the Church). This isn't necessarily a church building, but what I mean is the true House of God—the Spirit-filled House of God with the five-fold ministry in place.

"And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ..." (Ephesians 4:11-15)

Find Your Tribe and Get Inside (under protection)!

It is time to find our apostolic hub and get under its protection. This will keep us from getting off into the devil's territory. We cannot fight him in the street by ourselves and we definitely can't fight him if we barely recognize him! We are about to have great revival in the highways and bi-ways, so we must learn not to fight the devil in our own strength but in God's and with the help of our tribe inside!

WE WERE NEVER MEANT TO WAR ALONE! We need one another! We were not created to function alone. What you do not have, I may have. All of our experiences have been different in the processes that God has brought us through, and in them we have learned different skills and we have learned the enemy's tactics. "...He teaches our fingers to fight" (Psalm 144:1). It is time for those out wandering to find their tribe and get inside. We must bring this well-trained army together.

We Are Living in a Time Where We Need the Safety of the House

In this time of evil and false doctrine, we must find our place of safety. The book of Ephesians is truly a book of telling us about covering. It is time to get under our covering! This is not coming under a hierarchy, but coming under a place of safety. Knowing that within ourselves we do not know it all, but need those who know things beyond what we ourselves know—we need to be teachable. This is not an "I am over you" thing, but a coming together and putting our knowledge and wisdom with other Believers in a confirmation that sayswhat we do truly know is God! Yes, we surely don't know it all, but there is safety in gathering with other Believers to receive counsel.

"Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety" (Proverbs 11:14). It is time to get into your safe place, shut the door and say to the devil, "You are not coming in!" (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
