From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
Here is a trustworthy and timed-for-now word of the Lord through Elizabeth Verver.
In it she says, among other things:
"I asked the Lord, 'What are we celebrating?' I heard Him reply, 'All of Heaven is preparing for a great harvest of souls.' It was truly amazing! I could see the excitement in His eyes and feel the joy in the room as many were getting ready for what was coming."
If God could be described as "impatient" (concerning what Elizabeth shares above), I would say that would be my word to describe what I'm reading, because God wants to "get this party started" far more than we do.
If all of Heaven is preparing, then so must we.
With that in mind, be encouraged by this word! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Elijah List & Breaking Christian News
I feel a great anticipation to share what is next on God's agenda. We have now entered the new Hebrew year and God has revealed His plan of restoration. This year is indeed a time of recompense and reward. His true sons and daughters will arise in this season and they will be stamped in His glory and resurrection power. We will see the inward seal of the Holy Spirit upon us and through us.
I want to share about a recent vision the Lord gave me during a miracle and healing service that I was attending right after the Days of Awe. We were gathered together, praising and worshiping God, when all of a sudden the Lord began to show me a picture of what was happening in Heaven. I saw the Lord sitting at a table while many hosts in Heaven were working and gathering supplies in preparation for what appeared to be a large party. I saw party decorations, beautiful party hats, plates, and settings which were to be distributed to a rather large company of people.
As I was watching all of this take place, I asked the Lord, "What are we celebrating?" I heard Him reply, "All of Heaven is preparing for a great harvest of souls." It was truly amazing! I could see the excitement in His eyes and feel the joy in the room as many were getting ready for what was coming.
Then, I saw the Lord seated at a beautiful table and He was holding a gold pen in His hand. As I looked on, I could see that He was writing and signing these majestic-looking invitations. He was the host and was sending out invitations to the guests for this party. I felt honored to see what was happening, and I felt the joy of a glorious party that was being prepared even now.
Have You Responded to His Invitation?
The next day when I awoke, the Lord began to speak to me about the party being His banquet in Heaven, and the invited guests that He had been waiting on. He had been waiting for them to attend the banquet of glorious riches and beauty unforeseen in this lifetime. He had prepared everything for them in advance and was still waiting on their reception. That's when He took me to Scripture in Matthew 22:1-11. Let's look at this together:
"...'There once was a king who arranged an extravagant wedding feast for his son. On the day the festivities were set to begin, he sent his servants to summon all the invited guests, but they chose not to come. So the king sent even more servants to inform the invited guests, saying, "Come, for the sumptuous feast is now ready! The oxen and fattened cattle have been killed and everything is prepared, so come! Come to the wedding feast for my son and his bride!" But the invited guests were not impressed. One was preoccupied with his business; another went off to his farming enterprise.'" (Matthew 22:2-5, TPT) (Photo via Unsplash)
The Scriptures go on to tell about the rest of the invited guests who did not show up, and how the king then sent invitations to all the people everywhere, welcoming them to attend the banquet that he had prepared in their honor as his guests.
Jesus finished it all for the Bride of Christ. We have allowed many things to keep us from entering into the feast of the Lord. We have everything needed in the blood covenant with Jesus, but the enemy has distracted and blinded many to these truths. These blinders and strongholds will be broken off God's people, and the Church will arise to go into the highways and byways to bring the King His invited guests.
We have been invited to attend this feast of celebration with the Lord, and also to invite many to come and join us. It is the Lord who is sending us and empowering us for great exploits to advance His Kingdom and gather His invited guests. As these blinders and strongholds are broken off His children, they will again rejoice in their salvation.
We are worthy through His righteousness. We are coheirs with Christ who called and redeemed us. We are victorious and already made more than conquerors through our covenant with God, which is sealed in the Blood of His Son! We are His prized possession. We are arising for His purpose and plans!
The Tabernacle Celebration and the Feast of Booths
Earlier this year, the Lord began to talk to me about the Feast of Booths, the third of the fall feasts (which fell on September 20 - 27 this year). This was created by God as a set time on His calendar when the children of Israel were required to build booths as a memorial of their enslavement and redemption. Today (just like then) it is a time to celebrate the coming harvest; to thank the Lord for all He has done and all He is going to do.
My family had booked a camping trip around six months before this in order to rest and recharge together. To my amazement, I discovered that the exact dates of our trip also aligned with this feast. I knew we would be camping during the Feast of Booths, just as every Jew around the world would be. We would be celebrating together with the Lord in all that was yet to come. I knew the Lord was speaking about this being a time of celebration and the restoration He has promised His children. He will bring to pass His promises to His children. We have entered into His set time to recover all!
Rejoice, Children of God - Let the Festivities Begin!
Rejoice, children of God! Laugh with Heaven! Enter into a time of great celebration with your King. You have been invited to sit at the Lord's great banquet table. It is time for you to take your place in His Kingdom. (Photo via Unsplash)
We will see many arising in this hour as we ready ourselves for the harvest of souls that all of Heaven is preparing for. Shake off the grave clothes and rejoice in the hope of your salvation. You, who are His own, have already been invited to take your place. Let nothing keep you from your seated place in Christ.
The Lord is sending out His servants to gather His guests. It will be a time of great celebration as, one by one, they enter in! Rejoice! Dance! Sing praises in His name and honor! Prepare your heart for this time of great delight and joy with Your King! Lift up your heads and let your souls be restored in the hope of salvation. Weariness is breaking, and your eyes will see the rising of your King and His great deliverance of His beloved. He has prepared a place for you and nothing can keep you from entering into your position in Him. Let the party and festivities with the King begin!
Key Scriptures to Read During This Time of Celebration
Here are some key Scriptures to read as we continue through this time of celebration with the Lord. Praise Him in advance for the breakthroughs that are on the horizon!
"The Lord laughs at him [the wicked one—the one who oppresses the righteous], for he sees that his day [of defeat] is coming." (Psalm 37:13, AMP)
These Scriptures speak of the manifestation and revealing of the sons and daughters of God:
"The Spirit Himself testifies and confirms together with our spirit [assuring us] that we [Believers] are children of God. And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. For I consider [from the standpoint of faith] that the sufferings of the present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us! For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed." (Romans 8:16-19, AMP)
