From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This is a repost word from Patricia King that we previously published last July. For some of you who don't know this, Patricia King was the first speaker at our very first Elijah List conference that we ever did. This was about 10 years ago. She is one of those who "walks the walk." She's the real deal, so when you read her articles, you are reading right from the heart of the Father.
We felt it such a NOW WORD for the Body and for those called to the Media and Entertainment Industry. Patricia outlines it well, to the point in this prophetic word for the Media.
Speaking of Media, you won't want to miss out on the upcoming "MediaFest" in Phoenix Arizona coming up at the end of August. We've been advertising this event on the Elijah List as well. CLICK HERE to find out more about this incredible event.
First, here are a couple of resources by Patricia King that you need to get your hands on... and make sure to head down to Arizona next month for the MediaFest event if you can!
REPOST: Body of Christ Will Establish New Kingdom Entertainment Industry
The Lord has been speaking to me for a number of months regarding the entertainment industry and His plans for the release of inspired media and strategies. There is coming (and has already begun) an invasion of Holy Spirit inspired entertainment media that will transform nations and mindsets for His glory. God is raising up a media army that will truly conquer the media mountain of influence in the nations. I saw this army arising to communicate, facilitate and greatly influence music, movies, television programs, webisodes, advertisements and creative media festivals.
I Saw Angels
I saw "angels of creativity" being loosed to come along side of chosen vessels. Every dimension of media is going to explode with creativity and with favor. I also saw a specific company of angels being dispatched to bring in the provision and wisdom needed to spread the media.
A New Structure?Not A Replacement
God will continue to send His people into Hollywood to bring light and life, but Hollywood (the system behind the entertainment industry including spirits of mammon, greed, pride, self exaltation) will not be conquered or replaced. The system will eventually crumble and fall. God is building a brand new realm for media that is not aligned to Hollywood or the demonic system that controls it. It is not a replacement but something brand new. It's Builder and Maker (Architect) is God.
Many Christians will receive this revelation and will move forward to follow Him and find each other in the process. This company of reformers will not be bought or sold. Their hearts will be set apart for their King and not for their own agendas. They are surrendered vessels and money is not their God or their motivation. Fame is not their passion. They will be like David's mighty men and do whatever it takes to serve their King and give Him what He longs for.
Blueprints and Scrolls from Heaven
God is delivering blueprints and scrolls in the spirit that contain the wisdom to BUILD a foundation of Kingdom values that will create a container for the times. This is not for just a few, there will be many. I saw thousands of scrolls being dropped from the hand of God out of Heaven into the hands of the faithful stewards He is calling. The scrolls were falling into strategic regions.
I saw hundreds of red dots on a map and specifically identified Phoenix, Kansas City, Redding California, numerous cities in Texas, Ottawa, Calgary, London, and Sydney, Australia. There were many other places. Some seemed more pronounced than others, but they were too numerous to count and to identify the exact locations. They were in many nations. These blueprints and scrolls are falling now. The Spirit revealed to me that this specific season and wave of media blueprints and scrolls began in September 2008. There are many who already have them in their hand.
A Celebration, Not a Competition
I saw leaders in the media realm laying their lives down for others. There was no competition and everyone was being celebrated. Many networks were forming. The vision was so beautiful. Everyone was serving each other in order to bring forth glory for the King. Standards of humility, grace, love, camaraderie and faith were being lifted up.
I saw churches hosting films, movies, documentaries and arts and media festivals. I saw the face of many churches changing and media centers were springing up everywhere. Church buildings were continuing to be houses of worship, but in addition to hosting church families, they were literally being changed into production houses, music, art, dance studios and theaters. Some were also hosting film and arts festivals. Christian Film and Art Festivals were springing up everywhere. Entire communities were impacted as the masses flooded into the churches to watch various forms of media.
More people were watching entertainment media in church buildings than in movie theaters. I saw these centers spring up in many cities around the world. I specifically saw California, New York, Texas, Oregon, Nashville and Knoxville, Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas City and region, North Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma, Ontario, B.C. and Alberta in Canada. I saw London, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, and many places in India, China, Australia, Germany, Holland and South Africa.
These centers were in many places around the world and not confined to those just mentioned. They were truly too numerous to count or identify. There will be many church leaders who will receive specific assignments to launch into media building projects to facilitate the vision. I saw building expansion projects and enlargement of existing facilities. The Lord will release great amounts of provision for these projects. Christian College and University campuses will also host entertainment media.
I also saw Albany, Oregon being used as one of the media centers...some new things are coming.
Movie Theaters Go Christian
Many secular movie theaters will see the success of what God is doing in the Church and will start to host Christ-inspired media. Some theater owners, due to financial sufferings, will actually give their theaters to the Church. These theaters will turn into churches and houses of prayer and worship as well as media houses. There will be many salvations, healings and miracles in these sanctified media houses.
God is going to give Christians creative and anointed revelation for advertisement development for godly and wholesome products and companies. These advertisements will carry great favor and influence. The agencies will prosper but will not be focused on the "profit" but on the "Prophet." They will be used to saturate the hearts of the viewers with the presence and conviction of the Spirit.
I saw many media pioneers who had been taken out of the race in the past through discouragement and spiritual battle rising up in resurrection power and completing their mandate. They were the forerunners of what is breaking forth now. Their reward is at hand.
An exponential increase of media intercessors is emerging. I saw them in the vision. They were tenacious and many were praying for over 6-8 hours at a time. They were up in the night and in the day. The intercessors who had been praying for many years will see the reward of their labor. More intercessors will join them. New prayer companies carrying specific media assignments will also rise up in the nations for such a time as this.
New God-inspired music is about to burst into visibility with accompanying choreography and dramatic expressions. Christian recording artists who will not bow their knee to the lusts of the flesh or the world and its system will come into visibility and will have great favor with the masses. Many will follow their examples of godliness. Many church buildings will host recording studios that will birth anointed worship and entertainment music for the Church and the world.
God is Moving NOW
I recently spoke with Darren Wilson (Producer of Finger of God and Furious Love). He mentioned a clear download he received from the Lord regarding churches being used for movie houses that would facilitate the distribution of family entertainment media and Christian documentaries and movies. He explained how God was going to use church buildings to bless entire communities in this way. I had also heard a similar insight from an article that Sondra Martin had forwarded to our office within the last month.
God is on the move. Many are receiving the vision, witness and confirmation. Many are already receiving their mandates and blueprints for this hour.
Let's move forward. Now is the time. God's Media Army is Arising!
