From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this word from Holly Watson of California. I want you to think of this one word as you read through this: PRODIGALS.
God is bringing restoration to families and many people groups right now, including Hollywood, which we'll be posting more words about in the near future.
Please take your time reading through this article from Holly, which includes some awesome revelations from the Lord such as:
The Spirit of God says, "It's time to rise up and roar My purposes across the earth. It's time to herald the message of My Gospel into the heart of every nation to eradicate the fear of the unknown. It's time to move in My power across the earth so the world experiences My love in an Ephesians 3:20 way."
Amen to that. Be encouraged as you read through this NOW word...and share the Gospel of Christ. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

An Unusual Phrase
I woke up on April 4th of this year (2020) hearing the most unusual phrase. I heard the phrase "Robert Downey Jr. and the two witnesses" trumpeting through the atmosphere, as if to announce the plans of God in the midst of national and global upheaval spreading across the media. Due to the unusual nature of this phrase, I haven't been able to shake its significance over the past several months. Because of this, I've been on an energetic search of discovering its meaning and proper interpretation through the leading of the Holy Spirit.
"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2)
The Spirit of God oftentimes drops timely revelation into our spirits through abstract sentences for drawing us into the heart of God in a deeper way. In my experience, the Father sends these types of prophetic encounters to awaken our hearts to relevant Kingdom truths and uncover hidden realities behind the veil of the spiritual realm—through the identifiable voice of the Holy Spirit. Oftentimes, gaining understanding through this type of prophetic revelation leads us through a process of searching out and discovering the will of God through a deep examination of current events, and through studying relevant and timely Scriptures.
The last time I heard such an unusual phrase from the Holy Spirit that quickened my heart like this was in 2017, when the Lord appeared at my bedside and said, "Paris Hilton never did like Chuck Smith." (You can read the word HERE.)
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. is a well-known Hollywood entertainer who's had a resurgence and miraculous comeback of his career. After moderate success as a childhood actor, Mr. Downey fell into legal troubles starting in the late 90s, resulting in multiple arrests over the years and incarceration. Mr. Downey's time of confinement and public chastening became the awakening required for catapulting him into the miraculous emergence of his worldwide celebrity and fame. The very challenges that sparked a public outcry, labeling Mr. Downey as a high-risk commodity in his profession, created a platform for releasing Mr. Downey's current day testimony.
Not only did Robert Downey Jr.'s infamous "comeback" restore his reputation from what the consensus deemed as a tragic loss to the Hollywood entertainment industry and to the world, but Robert Downey Jr.'s promising new future was evidence of the hand of God making room for his giftings—despite past beliefs and judgments incorporated through the 'courts' of the world. Interestingly enough, one of Mr. Downey's most acclaimed works—playing the role of Charlie Chaplin (a silent on-screen movie legend) in 1992—provided Mr. Downey with a new voice in a new era, through an iconic media personality famously known for his absence of sound!

One of Mr. Downey's most recent projects (as executive producer) is a series highlighting the life and times of Perry Mason (post and prior to the Great Depression). It profiles a private investigator turned defense lawyer who fights for the justice and freedoms of the falsely accused. Perry Mason's stellar record of winning every case on behalf of his persecuted clients was the framework of his career. The premise of Perry Mason's strategy for exonerating those falsely accused was exposing the works of darkness through eyewitness accounts, along with the examination of public testimony.
"This will be my third visit to you. 'Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.'" (2 Corinthians 13:1)
The parallel between Mr. Downey's life trajectory, the body of work exemplified through the evidence of his dramatic comeback, and the disclosure of this timely revelation in the times and seasons in which we live, I believe, give us a glimpse into the heart and mind of God at this hour. Despite Mr. Downey's belief systems or spiritual preferences in a culturally and spiritually lost world, his story of transformation, redemption and reformation—through the saving grace of 'higher powers' (God, law and order)—is a forerunning message of how the Spirit of God has His eye on the Entertainment, Media and Government mountains in this new era.
I hear the Spirit of God say, "Watch for Me to move in the hearts of men to bring comebacks for the displaying of My power. Watch for justice to reign on the unjust who falsely accuse what I intend to use as examples of My prodigals coming home. Watch for the voice of the voiceless to arise across the land with a message of My merciful love as their saving grace at this hour. Watch for the watchmen to release a new sound in the entertainment and the governmental systems across the land.
"Watch, I say, watch! Watch Me move through the false media and through the false testimonies to exonerate what I have proven. Watch Me raise up a standard against the enemy which no man can refute or fumble. Watch Me drop a plumbline for measuring what's crooked in this land. Watch Me release My redemptive power on behalf of the pure in heart, and watch Me awaken the voice of the turtledove for announcing a new day has dawned."
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" (Jeremiah 29:11)
Witnessing the Greater Days of Glory
I had a dream back in 2019 where I was riding in the backseat of a car while observing the wheat being separated from the tares in the fields of Harvest. Along with witnessing God move for preparing the land to receive His glory, a fresh wind of the Spirit exposed the works of darkness through an anti-Christ spirit operating across the land. Although the Church shook with the sounds of a coming revival, it was through the voice of two witnesses (two people groups) that reformation was brought across the land.
The Spirit of God says, "It's time to rise up and roar My purposes across the earth. It's time to herald the message of My Gospel into the heart of every nation to eradicate the fear of the unknown. It's time to move in My power across the earth so the world experiences My love in an Ephesians 3:20 way. (Photo via Flickr)
"We are at a tipping point around the world. This tipping point is positioned to lift My Church over the anti-Christ spirit and into being the Light I have called her to be at this hour. This tipping point is the catapult for making My name famous without the fanfare of a modern-day revival. I AM coming beyond the speed of light and sound. I AM ready to adorn My Bride in all her splendor as the earth concedes to the brightness of My coming.
"I AM calling My prophets to the forefront at this hour. I AM calling the voice of one crying in the wilderness to make ready a people for a move of My blazing fire and radiant glory.
"I speak now to the radical left. I speak to the fear perpetuating the earth through the hands of a rebellious insurrection of men. Is My arm too short that I cannot save? Is My hand too weak that I will not strengthen the weak knees and the trembling hearts of My people? Are My ways not higher than your ways? AM I not the God of peace who leads every sheep led astray back into the safety of My fold?
"I say this to you: I AM coming for you at this hour. I AM sending an array of angelic messengers to shift the dark night of your soul. I AM turning your heart into a bright and shining light, shining in the midst of gross darkness. I AM removing the tares of deception, and I AM giving you a new heart for the saving of many souls.
"To those who hear My Word, I AM working even now in the midst of thee. I have seen and, yes, I know the number and the longevity of your days. I know the plans that I have for you; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future hope beyond your wildest dreams. I AM coming quickly and My recompense is coming with Me. I AM coming speedily and My rewards are many. I AM making a way where there seems to be no way, and I AM coming as My prophet Joel has stated—to pour out My Spirit in these last days."
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us..." (Ephesians 3:20)
