From the desk of Steve Shultz:
These two shorter words by Doug Addison and Garris Elkins just came in the past couple of days...and they are both power-packed with Wisdom and Insight for the Body of Christ.
Many are experiencing a "spiritual battle" right now, and dealing with some fear and anxiety while questioning their faith. If you can relate to that...this word is for YOU!
Here are two words from Doug and Garris:
Doug Addison: There is an attack right now to get people to worry, panic or become anxious. This is to try to keep you from operating in peace. Old things are coming to the surface as God is bringing healing on a deeper level. Don't mistake this time of healing as regression.
Garris Elkins: If you have become overwhelmed at what is transpiring in the world around you it is because your shield of faith hangs limp at your side. Raise your shield and begin to see the battle from Heaven's perspective.
These are NOW words for us that were just released the past couple of days!!! I encourage you to pray into these words and share with others around you who need to hear them too.
Enjoy! And thanks for forwarding this to your friends! They can subscribe just below...

"Prophetic Word: No More Anxiety, Worry or Panic"
Earlier this month, I released my Prophetic Word for October. But God has been speaking so much over the past month that I have not been able to release it all at once. So I wanted to share this article with you to encourage you with a Part 2 this month.
Anxiety, Worry and Panic Attack
There is an attack right now to get people to worry, panic or become anxious. This is to try to keep you from operating in peace. Old things are coming to the surface as God is bringing healing on a deeper level. Don't mistake this time of healing as regression. (Photo via Pixabay)
Things are being brought to the surface for the purposes of strengthening you so that you can cross into the new season at hand. Take time to get healing and don't be alarmed or wonder why things that you have already dealt with in the past seem to resurface.
It is important to rise above this attack so that you can receive some of the things that I mention below.
Weeping Turns to Reaping
God spoke to me that many people who have gone through difficult times are going to see a change happen. We are entering into a time of answered prayers. God has heard your cry and this year will bring about the fulfillment of some promises that you may have given up on or forgotten.
Those of you who have been crying and crying out for change are going to start receiving repayment for all your pain.
"Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy." Psalm 126:5
There is a time of change here for those who have "sown with tears." Your turnaround is here as God has heard your cries and is answering your prayers. Your "sowing and weeping" is now turning into "sowing and reaping." This means that God is repaying your pain!
Watchman Being Restored
Many intercessors have grown tired and some were negatively influenced and began to judge others regarding the things they were seeing from God. This judgment caused them to lose their authority in prayer. When God reveals something to the intercessors, it is meant for prayer, not to bring judgment.
"I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give Him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth." Isaiah 62:6–7
God is restoring prophetic intercessors and He is also raising up new watchmen on the walls. God showed me it is the prophetic intercessors who have prevented many terrorist attacks, although they are not aware of this. (Photo via ndor)
Just as terrorists often operate in "sleeper cells" in which they are not aware of the actions of the other small cells of terrorists, so it is with small prophetic intercession groups. Their efforts may go unnoticed and they often are not aware of the actions of other intercessors.
God is restoring the authority of the intercessors as they step away from using what they are praying to judge others. There is new power coming to reveal and stop the attacks of the enemy.
More is On the Way
The key to getting the breakthroughs you need right now is to stop the attacks that take away your peace. As you do this, God is going to unleash a floodgate of revelation, creative ideas and blessings. Those who have sown in tears are going to "reap with joy."

"Overcoming Our Current Spiritual Battle"
A Spiritual Battle
A few nights ago, I had one of the most vivid dreams I have ever experienced. I was atop Mount Ashland and dug into foxholes with other Believers. We were involved in intense combat (this was a spiritual battle dream). Mount Ashland is a high mountain where I live that overlooks Southern Oregon and Northern California. Because of the location of the battle, I knew the outcome of the battle would have regional significance.
The battle scene in the dream was like video footage of actual combat. Bullets were flying over our heads. Each of us fired our weapons at wave after wave of the advancing enemy. I heard fellow soldiers yelling, "Ammo!" and I would see a fresh magazine thrown from one foxhole to another to keep each solider in the fight. Combatants were screaming orders and warnings. "Incoming" was shouted to announce incoming rounds of dark spiritual artillery.
As the battle finally came to an end a deep and profound silence settled over the battlefield as the cloud of smoke from spent gunpowder still hung in the air above our heads. We rose from our entrenchments into a post-battle hush to see the enemy lying dead at our feet extending as far as the eye could see. Our faces were dirty and tear-stained as we began to look at each other with gratefulness that we would live to see another day. (Photo via Wikipedia)
We began to march down from the mountain summit to the ski lodge. A line of people stood waiting for our return. This line filled the lodge and traced out into the parking lot down the mountain for miles into the valley below. Those waiting in line were people from our community who knew we had just put our lives at risk in a high place battle for the well-being of their families and community. One after one, our necks were hugged with great emotion. Each person in line shed thankful tears of joy at the victory.
As I debriefed the battle, I remembered seeing those who survived the fight raising shields of faith. These were the same shields described by Paul in Ephesians 6 that capture and extinguish the incoming arrows of the enemy. These were not like a solid gladiator's shield. We could see through our shields. When we raised them in battle they did not obscure the battlefield before us. Whenever we lifted our shields of faith and looked through their transparency the entire image of the battle would change. If our shields were not raised we could only see the approaching enemy with the eyes of fearful natural sight.
Prayer and Faith Are Key!
In faith, we also saw angels in combat with us. These angels were swinging their swords and destroying the approaching enemy with each powerful swing of their powerful blades. Prayers we had prayed in years past arrived like time-traveling mortars exploding on the field of our present battle.
The enemy became surprised and confused. They began to raise their heads trying to understand the supernatural intervention that was turning the battle in our favor. As their heads were raised we were able to easily identify them as targets and dispatch their lies with well-aimed declarations of truth.
Dream Interpretation: There is a battle being waged in the high places of the spirit realm over our families, our cities and every region in our nation. These life and death battles are being waged and won with the unnatural weapons of "prayer and faith". These supernatural weapons and tactics will transform how we see the battlefield and the enemy who stands before us. (Photo via Wikimedia)
If you have become overwhelmed at what is transpiring in the world around you it is because your shield of faith hangs limp at your side. Raise your shield and begin to see the battle from Heaven's perspective. Nothing coming against you will be able to gain control of your spiritual battlefield if you see the battle with the eyes of faith. You are always fighting from a place of victory. This reality is what empowers our faith and turns the tide of battle.
