From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
Fear has tried time and time again to raise its ugly head throughout the nations of the earth.
Lana Vawser of Australia had a powerful encounter with the Lord about us combating fear as she says:
The Lord showed me that many men and women have battled the ROOT of fear for many years, and in the last year or so, the fear and torment have magnified. I then began to see and hear the heavens rumble â€“ the thunderings of God â€“ and suddenly I saw fire fall from Heaven. It came like a fireball and at the same time looked like a tidal wave. It began to fall upon them, one after another, after another, after another...

The Elijah List & Breaking Christian News
Recently I went into an encounter with the Lord where I saw many people, all across the Body of Christ, paralyzed with fear. I saw a crippling, tormenting fear that these people were experiencing. When I looked closer, I saw that it was actually a "ROOT" of fear. In other words: it was a stronghold of fear.
I saw these ones on their faces, crying out to the Lord for deliverance; crying out for freedom. There was a loud sound of repentance that was flowing from within their hearts, and I watched as tears flowed. There was a deep repentance for fear, a deep repentance for unbelief, a deep repentance for not trusting the Lord, and at the same time, there was a deep, deep yearning for a fresh baptism of fireâ€”the fire of His love.
I watched as the Lord began to stretch them on the inside. The GROAN they were making was creating room for the fresh fire, the fresh impartation, the fresh baptism of fire.
There Is More! I Will Not Settle
I saw that they had been through a very trying season and the weariness was heavy upon them. But as the Lord moved within themâ€”stretching the womb of their spirits, hearts and lives to receive the fresh fire of Godâ€”a deep roar began to come forth from inside them, stronger and stronger, that declared: "I will not settle. I will not settle. There is more. I will not settle. I MUST have more." (Photo via Pxfuel)
The Fireball of Faith
The Lord showed me that many men and women have battled the ROOT of fear for many years, and in the last year or so, the fear and torment have magnified. I then began to see and hear the heavens rumble â€“ the thunderings of God â€“ and suddenly I saw fire fall from Heaven. It came like a fireball and at the same time looked like a tidal wave. It began to fall upon them, one after another, after another, after another.
The root of fear within them was suddenly consumed, and a huge fireball of His fire, and His fiery love, was imparted and began to explode within them. As it came upon and within them, I saw it explode into a fireball of faith. It was HIS faith. The root of fear was completely and suddenly consumed. Where this fear once was, now, came a roar of faithâ€”a depth and sound of faith that they had not heard before.
They began to burn with the love of God; they began to burn with the deep revelation of what it means to be "in Christ." They began to arise as burning ones, knowing their identity; no longer living under ceilings and containments. This was their divine revealing! The revelation of being in Christ was burning so deep within them, deeper than ever. They were suddenly delivered and transformed.
From Timid to Tenacious
Then the Lord's voice thundered: "Watch the timid be delivered and arise tenacious."
I watched as these burning ones, who were previously so timid, now arose in the earth with tenacity. There was a fire of faith within them that couldn't be extinguished or contained. They arose as powerful individuals; they are arising now. The enemy tried to disqualify them and keep them hidden because of fear, but they are now arising, uncompromising, single-minded, with ferocious focus and complete resolve. They are arising as giants of faith. They are walking in the fire of victory found IN CHRIST and will not accept defeat.
The Lord showed me that the impartation of faith which has been given to them will see them begin to lead in this hour. They will lead â€“ in many different ways â€“ the revival of faith that God is igniting in this hour and new era. (Photo via Unsplash)
Free and Ferocious in Faith
These burning ones have been pushed into a corner by the enemy. They were previously lorded over by intimidation, but they are now free and arising in ferocious faith. They are deeply tethered to Him in a way that they've never been before. They will begin to move on the assignment of the Lord and see this fireball of faith within start to explode out of them â€“ through the ROAR of faith in their spirits. The embers of this fire will flow and set others ablaze, igniting the groan of deep, deep faith within those they are sent on assignment to.
The explosion of signs, wonders and miracles that will follow them will be unprecedented. The groan and roar within them will see the breath and wind of God blow and ignite a deep hunger within those around them. No longer will they be labeled as timid. No longer will they be labeled as fearful. They are being called and branded by the thundering voice of God: "My tenacious ones, walking ferociously and fiercely in the ferocious focus of faith."
"From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the realm of Heaven's Kingdom is bursting forth, and passionate people have taken hold of its power." (Matthew 11:12 TPT)
