"God is Sending His 'Swift' Angel Your Way!"

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
This is a VERY encouraging word to me as it should be to you as well, WHOEVER YOU ARE!
Some of the most common lies of the enemy are that we've missed God or messed up so many times in the past, and we've missed important opportunities that can never be regained.
This would be a lie of the enemy!
Let me be vulnerable with you. Even though we go to over 300,000 email subscribers a day, and we are now quickly developing our awesome TV ministry called ELIJAH STREAMS, I am just like most of you.
I look at other ministries who have been around as long as I have, and some of them have done such HUGE things for the Lord, that I've at times wondered if I had missed God.
I was talking to the Lord about this just today before I saw this. I was pointing out a given ministry that I was amazed at, and I asked God if I had just missed it.
HIS response to me was to not compare, for to do so is not wise. He said that ministry was called before it was ever birthed to go into all the earth, even physically with missions and books and, on and on.
What a relief.
We all have places we feel we SHOULD have gone and obeyed God in, and others that were NEVER to be our calling. Only God can know the truth in each of our situations, but no matter where you are, God is sending the angel called SWIFT to fire you up again...
Here is just a small portion of the word below, but you need to read it for yourself:
"My people feel like they have made too many mistakes and have forfeited their calling. I am here to bring breakthrough to those areas that have caused people to have delayed obedience." (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Angel Called "Swift"
On Sunday, May 26th, 2019, I had one of the craziest spiritual encounters of my life. I was standing in the back of the church I pastor, Empowered Life Church, when I heard the Lord say, "Someone is about to enter the room." I looked out to the door anticipating a visitor, and when no one came in the front door, I lifted my hands to Heaven to worship.
Suddenly, I saw a portal open up in the roof of the church. I could only see the face of the angel because it was moving so quickly. It swooped in and began circling the sanctuary so quickly it created a whirlwind. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Out from the tornado, the angel was releasing things into the people in the sanctuary.
I saw the angel drop a shield and sword into one man's hands. He then quickly dropped a crown on a woman's head, and before my eyes, her hair grew out, and her dress transformed into a gown, and the train of the dress filled the sanctuary.
While I was watching this, I heard the Lord say, "This angel's name is Swift. He is here to bring a swift acceleration. My people feel like they have made too many mistakes and have forfeited their calling. I am here to bring breakthrough to those areas that have caused people to have delayed obedience. I am bringing swift acceleration; the things that would take years, will take place in months."
In my spirit I heard:
"'Behold, days are coming,' declares the Lord,
'When the plowman will overtake the reaper
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed...'" (Amos 9:13)
The Body of Christ is in a time of swift acceleration. God has not overlooked those of us who feel we have missed His timing. He is bringing Heaven's help to bring breakthrough and acceleration for us to inherit what He has promised us.
Turning Adversity into Benefit
After I shared this revelation, one of our pastors, the one who I saw the Lord give the shield and sword to, grabbed the Mic and shared. The night before he and his wife were talking, and he was telling her that he felt he had missed some opportunities in God. He felt discouraged and that if he had been obedient, he would be further in the Lord.
As soon as he finished sharing this in the natural, a Swift bird appeared before him and his wife and then darted away suddenly. He sat back and told his wife that encountering the Swift bird was significant.
Wow, I love how God confirms His word in the mouth of two or three witnesses. I had never heard of a Swift bird before this encounter. Here's an excerpt from an article I found on the internet about Swift birds:
"The swift bird is one of the fastest and most agile birds on the planet. Its remarkable wing structure shows a steadily gliding bird. To prevent exhaustion, the wing converts potential energy to counteract the aerodynamic forces. The wing features a non-powered flight, with fixed wings at constant flight speed. In other words, the Swift demonstrates nature's ability to turn adversity into a benefit."
I love the last line, "The Swift demonstrates nature's ability to turn adversity into a benefit." God is turning what we feel has been our most discouraging moments into the most significant breakthroughs.
God is breaking discouragement off of the Church. If you are reading this and have been struggling with despair, maybe, like me, you feel like you've wasted time and now specific promises of God have expired.
I'm here to prophesy to you: God is sending Heaven's angelic help to bring breakthrough and swift acceleration! For some crazy reason, He has chosen to partner with us to bring about His purposes on the earth. Child of God, our Father requires us!
