Elijah List "NEWS INTENSE DAY"
Requires Dedicated Posting -- Steve Shultz
Begins to Fulfill Prophecy Before Our Eyes
Note from Steve Shultz: This is the
time prophesied for a mighty harvest, this VERY year, a harvest
in unexpected and unprecedented ways:
The Scripture foretold this. There are literal and spiritual implications
for this Scripture. When someone comes TO JERUSALEM, they are coming
to God and when they bring their offerings to the temple they are
bringing sacrifices of Praise. With that in mind, read this:
Isa 66:19-21 NIV
19 "I will set a sign among them, and I will
send some of those who survive to the nations - to Tarshish, to
the Libyans and Lydians (famous as archers), to Tubal and Greece,
and to the distant islands that have not heard of my fame or seen
my glory. They will proclaim my glory among the nations. 20 And
they will bring all your brothers, from all the nations, to my holy
mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the LORD - on horses, in
chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels," says the LORD. "They
will bring them, as the Israelites bring their grain offerings,
to the temple of the LORD in ceremonially clean vessels. 21 And
I will select some of them also to be priests and Levites," says
Middle East: QATAR and KUWAIT:
"In two short hours, more Qataris heard
the Gospel than I have been able to reach in nearly five years of
"Just when we thought Satellite television
was going to be the most significant way for the Lord to sow the
seeds of the Gospel, this film arrives in Muslim nations!"
"The film is so popular here that they have been canceling the other
films to show 'The Passion' in all the theatres at the cinema complex."
"Just today a couple of local women asked me, "Do you have the New
Testament in Arabic?"
"There have been several articles in the [Arab] paper, all positive
and surprisingly silent in terms of emphasizing the Islamic belief
that Jesus did not die on the cross. People are talking about wanting
to go and see it."
From: Joel News International
http://www.joelnews.org [This message has been edited by News
Room (edited 29 March 2004).]
To everyone's shock and surprise, 'The Passion' was released today
here in Qatar. Until now we have only been able to show the Jesus
film in Arabic to a handful of Qataris in the secret of a home setting.
In the coming weeks, potentially tens of thousands of Arab Muslims
will see this powerful portrayal of Christ's suffering and death.
In two short hours, more Qataris heard the Gospel than I have been
able to reach in nearly five years of living here.
The Arabic subtitles were completely accurate - they didn't water
anything down or change any language that Muslims would not agree
with. All of us watched the film in absolute
amazement in what God had done. The Muslims sitting around us were
being moved - gasping, crying and reacting with disgust to the brutality
that Jesus faced.
Now - if you have heard anything about why the Arab Muslims would
want to see the film, you know that it is because they 'heard' it
was anti-Jewish and since they hate the Jews, they want to see it.
How interesting that God is using this film to communicate the Gospel
and the very opposite spirit that might be motivating them to go
and see it. The message to love your enemies, and Jesus praying
for them to be forgiven while on the Cross would hit the Muslim
theatre-goer in a powerful way.
Please pray for these urgent requests:
1. That this film will be allowed to be shown for a significant
period of time. It is being shown in three different theatres, up
to four times a day. Fundamentalists will surely be in an uproar
about this unprecedented event. Just when we thought Satellite television
was going to be the most significant way for the Lord to sow the
seeds of the Gospel, this film arrives in Muslim nations!
2. That this film will cause a major shaking and stirring in the
hearts of many Muslims, leading them to salvation. 3. That God will
lead us to men and women who have been/will be impacted by this
REPORT FROM KUWAIT:
The film is so popular here that they have been canceling the other
films to show 'The Passion' in all the theatres at the cinema complex.
I took a friend on the second night. The film was running in all
three theatres. I would estimate that well
over 50% of the people in the theatre were local Muslims including
women completely veiled. You could see how this film had impacted
everyone. On the second day, several of the local newspapers had
the advertisement for the film on the FrontPage.
It appears that even Saudi Arabia is getting a chance to see the
film, albeit through pirated DVD's. There are no movie theatres
in Saudi Arabia anyway. God knows what He's doing. I was just reminded
what the Apostle Paul writes: "It is true that some preach Christ
out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter
do so in love. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition,
not sincerely. But what does it matter? The important thing is that
in every way (e.g. pirated DVDs) the true Christ is preached. And
because of this I rejoice". (Philippians 1:15-18)
The release was very timely. The killing of Palestinian Hamas leader
Sheikh Ahmad Yassin happened the morning after the film was released.
The Arab response has been a whole new wave of hatred for the Jews,
which was illustrated in a large public demonstration/march yesterday.
At a time when the urge for Muslims to hate has been renewed, the
Lord has brought 'The Passion' telling them - 'No, love your enemies!
Forgive them!' The contrast is staggering.
[Note from JOEL NEWS: Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat watched 'The Passion of the Christ' at a private screening
in the West Bank city of Ramallah, and made a positive statement
Just today a couple of local women asked me, "Do you have the New
Testament in Arabic?
"Me and all my friends want to read it!" Another asked about where
to get the Arabic Bible on the internet. This has never happened!
The film is generating so much interest in Jesus and the Scriptures.
Every Christian we are talking to seems to have a story or two just
like this one. May it continue to increase.
There have been several articles in the paper, all positive and
surprisingly silent in terms of emphasizing the Islamic belief that
Jesus did not die on the cross. People are talking about wanting
to go and see it. Pray that many would watch this movie and that
it would spark an interest and hunger to know more of Jesus and
the Bible. Pray that hearts would be drawn by the love of Jesus.
Pray that believers would make the most of this opportunity to talk
with their friends, to be available for those who will be impacted
by what they see.
Jim Bakker and
Tammy Faye Appear on Larry King to Appeal for Prayer for Tammy's
In what is an unprecedented show of unity following years of a broken
marriage, which included a fallen ministry and a fallen leader,
Jim Bakker and Tammy Faye Messner appeared on the same Larry King
show last night to appeal for prayers for Tammy Faye, who now has
inoperable cancer. Please follow the WONDERFUL example of all these
prayers between broken family members and pray for this Christian
Sister, Tammy Faye and also Jim Bakker.

Pirated DVDs of 'The
Passion of Christ' Flood Jeddah
Mohammed Alkhereiji, Arab News Staff
JEDDAH, 15 March 2004 - Pirated DVDs of controversial Hollywood
blockbuster "The Passion of Christ" have hit the streets and are
selling like hot cakes, according to street vendors.
The film is being sold outside of supermarkets, and out of the trunk
of cars for the price of SR30 or less. A copy obtained by Arab News
was of high quality.
A street vendor said on condition of anonymity vendors underestimated
demand for the movie because the dialogue is in Latin and ancient
Aramaic rather than English. "My customers don't like subtitled
movies, but they are buying this one."
in Houston Will Play a Role in Redefining Houston"
Note by Steve Shultz:
In light of the Refinery fire
in Houston, I (Steve Shultz) file this prophetic news report from
a person in the Houston area written to Chuck Pierce via Chuck's
assistant Brian Kooiman.
Grace and Peace to you and the family.
I'd like for you to drop an update in Chuck's ear when the opportunities
arises. In August ' 03, the Lord had him to raise our level of awareness
regarding the Houston Refineries, I quote Chuck, "God showed me
the Refineries of Houston. They should be a focus for us the next
few months in Prayer. The Refineries in Houston will play a role
in redefining Houston." On Tuesday evening (3/30/04) the BP Amoco
Refinery caught fire. The fire was eventually contained with no
casualties and no homes destroyed. Also, I'm sure he is aware that
the Texas Refineries have been put on "Terror Alert" by our Government.
We praise God that the Houston fire was limited as we have been
in prayer for security and protection. Moreover, even the BP Amoco
Officials are amazed at the outcome. We are pressing in through
Prayer and Fasting (over the next 40 days) to discern the true meaning
of their role in our City's redefining process.
Please extend our greetings and blessings to him and his family.
We are so looking forward to his coming in 2 weeks.

Calling A Solemn Assembly for the State of Oregon
Saturday, April 3rd, 2004
12:00 Noon - 3 PM
Saturday, April 3, 2004
Noon - 3 PM
Salem City Church
187 High Street NE / Salem Center
Begins with Worship and Prayer at Salem City Church (187 High Street
NE / Salem Center), then will flow into on-site Prayer Teams at
the State Capital, State Justice Building, Oregon Supreme Court
& Capital Mall
Sound the Call!
Sound the trumpet in Zion! Call a fast and gather all the people
together for a solemn meeting. Bring everyone--the elders, the children,
and even the babies. Call the bridegroom from his quarters and the
bride from her privacy. The priests, the ministers of God, will
stand between the people and the altar, weeping; and they will pray:
"Spare your people, O our God; don't let the heathen rule them,
for they belong to you. Don't let them be disgraced by the taunts
of the heathen who say, 'Where is this God of theirs? How weak and
helpless he must be!'" Then the Lord will pity his people and be
indignant for the honor of his land! (Joel 2:15-18 / Living Translation)
In December of 2003, God released through Chuck Pierce and Dutch
Sheets, on their 50 state prayer tour, a prophetic word for the
state of Oregon. Critical judiciary issues in our state have made
it obvious that the word is accurate. God has sovereignly chosen
to entrust His people in Oregon with a great battle that will have
implications not only for our state, but for the future of our entire
To achieve victory in this battle, it will require ACTION and the
UNITY of God's people in Oregon. We believe that the entire state,
not just a few counties, must be involved and standing together
as the Body of Christ in Oregon, supporting each other in this spiritual
battle through prayer.
Because of the extended and long term implications of court rulings
that will take place in our state, we are asking believers and churches
from all across Oregon to prayerfully consider re-arranging your
personal weekend agendas and commitments on April 3rd to be a part
of this sacred assembly.
For those who are not able to travel to the state capital, you may
want to plan gatherings at your local county seats of government
during this same time frame.
Please pray and ask God for revelation for how we can each do our
part. Christians in our state CANNOT REMAIN PASSIVE during this
important time in our nation's history.
May we, as the Body of Christ in Oregon, be unified, willing to
each do our part and win strategic battles in heavenly realms to
see God's Kingdom Rule restored over our state and over our nation.

Benefit Walk Scheduled
for Art Carey
Many of our Elijah List readers are aware that our first manager's
husband, Art, had a brain-stem stroke (over three years ago) that
left him in a debilitated condition. Beverly Carey helped me get
THE ELIJAH LIST "off the ground." Soon after that, I feel that Art,
her husband paid a very dear price for Beverly's devotion to the
Elijah List ministry. He needs to be kept in constant prayer for
his ultimate healing. Please both pray and if you are in the area
and can participate in this Benefit Walk for the Carey family, the
information is below. -- Steve Shultz, THE ELIJAH LIST
At last update, Art is stable yet still needing constant care. In
order to help his family there has been a Benefit Walk scheduled
for Saturday April 17th beginning at Exit 248 (Turner & Sunnyside)
and ending at Bardell Street in Eugene, where Art currently resides....54
miles. If you would like to be a sponsor in this walk for the Carey
family please send your tax deductible gifts to Fruitland Community
Church, 813 63rd Ave. NE in Salem 97301....or call for more info:
Let's let God use us to bring provision and blessing to this
precious family in the name of Jesus!
by R.T. Kendall
"Release them and you will be set free."
These were not exactly the words that R. T. Kendall had hoped
to hear during a painful situation when he had been terribly
wronged! However, these words cut into his heart. He knew
he couldn’t ignore them and also be healed.
Is His voice silent? Have you lost your connection you once
felt? Perhaps it's time to take a quick survey and look at a
prime suspect that roadblocks all relationships: forgiveness.
If you are seriously looking for a way to reopen than channel
and you want to recapture that inner peace, Total Forgiveness
is the roadmap that you need!
Learn how to avoid spiritual quicksand and experience the incredible
freedom found in total forgiveness. It's time to cast out the
areas of un-forgiveness that have kept you from enjoying the
best God has to offer you.

my life." -Jim Bakker

"Journey Into the Miraculous"
by Todd Bentley
Todd Bentley's life
story will do more than merely entertain you; it will inspire you
to believe in a bigger God than you've ever known. You'll read how
this supernatural God can take an ordinary man and do extraordinary
works through him. Todd's life is truly a miracle! His story testifies
to the Father's grace, love and transforming power; it demonstrates
that God is truly looking for ordinary people with a "yes" in their
spirit to do the "greater works than these" that Jesus prophesied.
If you've ever felt disqualified or inadequate to do big things
for God then this book will revolutionize your thinking.
The passion of Todd's life and ministry to the nations is to see
others come into the reality of intimate relationship with Jesus
and to experience the transferable, tangible anointing of the Holy
Spirit. Today God is releasing His presence and power through Todd's
life to the point where the blind see, the deaf hear and the lame
walk, confirming that Jesus still heals every sickness and disease.
This anointing is available to enable all believers to fulfill the
great commission with miracles, signs and wonders following the
Journey Into The Miraculous will give you a greater passion for
intimacy with God and convince you that Jesus' words are really
true for you, yes; even you...and they're for today. "Preach the
Gospel, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast
out demons... (Matt. 10:8)" What are you waiting for?
"Todd Bentley's life story will inspire faith and courage. What
an amazing story of God's mercy and power. Read it and then give
it to a friend. Todd has ministered in several of our conferences
in Kansas City. I have seen the Holy Spirit move powerfully through
him as we have witnessed a number of dramatic healings. The Lord
has graciously released an unusual anointing for healing in his
ministry. I enjoy Todd and support his ministry. I know you will
be blessed by his story and ministry." - Mike Bickle, best selling
author and director of The International House of Prayer in Kansas
"The Holy Spirit spoke to me a few years ago and said He was raising
up a new, young champion named Todd. He would have who He would
have - a raw young man with fresh faith, anointing, power, fire
and zeal - the full-blown package. It's there; it's there." -
James Goll, Leading prophetic voice, author, founder of Ministry
to the Nations
"It has been my delight to serve on the board of Todd Bentley's
ministry advisors. I've been able to watch this young man from the
early days of his ministry. God has placed an awesome anointing
upon Todd's life. I believe he is a forerunner of a new breed that
God is now raising up - part of a breed of believers with great
grace and anointing. Your faith will be expanded as you read about
how God is moving through this outstanding young man." - Bobby
Conner, Founder of Demonstration of God's Power Ministries
"I've known Todd for a number of years and he is the most radical,
faith-filled young man I've known in the whole wide world. He's
just out there going for it. He's true blue to the Word, the Spirit
of God and to the body of Christ. I'm excited about Todd and Fresh
Fire and about their global outreach to mobilize the body of Christ.
I encourage you to stand with this ministry and be partners in the
harvest." - Patricia King, extreme prophetic minister, cofounder
of the War Room and Christian Services Association
"I love Todd Bentley's ministry and everything about it. Rarely
have I seen such a gift of faith in operation almost all the time.
His faith is so contagious. When you're under Todd's ministry, you
feel like you can go anywhere and do anything. No problem or obstacle
is too big. He's so inclusive. He wants everyone to go with him
all the time. To me, that's how Jesus would be. I encourage you
to read this book, be inspired, laugh, cry, and then go out and
do something about it!" - Stacey Campbell, cofounder of New Life
Church, Praying the Bible International and Revival Now Ministries
"Todd Bentley is a prophetic sign post of how in this end time hour,
God is supernaturally raising up men and women who will literally
change the course of history. Todd is not only a sovereign vessel,
but he lives in a sovereign time. The supernatural grace and the
amazing acceleration that mark his life are not only available to
him, but also to you - if only
you will grab hold of all that God desires to give you! This book
is a must - it is an insider's
guide into how God can give us beauty for ashes, take the 'Saul'
in us and make us into a Paul, and defy all logic through His transforming
love. Todd pulls back the curtains and lets us peer into the personal
molding and making of one who lives with eternity set in his heart.
His story disproves old paradigms, obliterates old wineskins and
is nothing less than one miracle after another. How amazing God's
grace is in the life of this modern day hero of the faith. For absolutely
nothing is impossible when we ask for 100% of God and give Him nothing
less than 100% in return." - Jill Austin, Founder, Master Potter
Ministries, Kansas City, Missouri, Author of Master Potter and Master
Potter and the Mountain of Fire
