From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
This is one fresh and powerful word of the Lord through Lana Vawser of Australia.
What a way to start off the new year with a word like this from God's heart to yours!
As you read through it, you'll be saying "amen and amen" over and over again... It's so good, and here's just a piece of it:
"You thought you had been taken out. You thought you had died within; but I am raising you up stronger than ever. This is a time of ferocious COMEBACK in your life, and I am raising you up as one who is CARRYING THE NEW WINE. This may have looked like the end and a death to so much, but this is a time of NEW BIRTH and NEW COMMISSIONING. Watch and see what I am about to do..."
In everything you've walked through, God is birthing something new. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Elijah List & Breaking Christian News
Recently, I heard the Lord speaking over many people in the Body of Christ: "It may look like the end, but it's a new birth."
I began to see people all across the Body of Christ who were feeling as if they had 'lost themselves' in 2021 because of all the hardships and battles they had endured. They came to the beginning of 2022 feeling lost, like they were but a shadow of themselves and who they were starting to 'flourish' into in the years prior.
The Lord showed me that their hearts were crying out to Him in deep pain. They were in a place of brokenness because of all they had endured. There were so many questions; there was trauma, pain, grief and a feeling of emptiness. I saw them looking back on the past few years feeling like they were not the same person anymore. Hopelessness, disappointment, pain and trauma had taken root. They were feeling as if the life had been stolen from them; like the breath and passion they once carried had waned.
I saw these people crying out to the Lord, feeling as if they had reached their end. I could hear their hearts crying out to the Lord in the secret place: "Lord, I feel like a part of me has died. Lord, I feel like I have died inside. Lord, the pain is overwhelming; I am exhausted, Lord." I watched them on their faces crying out. Dreams had died, passions had died; many were left feeling 'locked down' and unable to dream again.
The New Birth
Suddenly, His voice spoke over the people: "It may look like the end, but it's new birth."
I was surrounded in the spirit by a very deep sense of transformation and His reviving fire. I sensed new life, stronger than I had ever felt before.
The Lord continued to speak:
"There is deep pain. There has been brokenness. Things have died within, but these things are NO MATCH for My fire – My revival fire. I am coming swiftly and suddenly upon you, now, to not only REVIVE you, but to RESUSCITATE you, REBOOT you and RESET you. There have been MANY things that you have endured in this season; there has been great pain, great loss and great trauma. But My power, My love and My fire upon you right now—to REVIVE you and bring you forth STRONGER than ever—is greater than anything you have endured. (Photo via Unsplash)
"I am faithful. I have been with you. I have carried you. I have caught every tear. The battle you have been through has not been for nothing. SO much is about to make sense as My fire is falling. You are stepping into a great reset, and in the reset, you will receive and walk in the greatest depth of intimacy, encounter and increase in Me that you have walked in.
"There [is] a deep death that has taken place...but, oh, the FRUITFULNESS and GLORY—My glory—that will now rest upon you in greater ways than you have ever seen! All of the areas where you have felt loss—I am speaking unto you today that [in] these areas you will see a reviving and a strengthening; a fortifying like you have never seen. This is your new birth. This is where you come forth, like never before, as the 'YOU' I have created you to be, carrying new fire, carrying new boldness, carrying new and fresh awakening to who I am in you and who you are in Me; carrying greater revelation of My heart and My ways.
"The enemy came [in] thick and fast to knock you off, attempting to cause you to lose footing. But I say unto you: I am SECURING and FORTIFYING your footing in Me, and in your FOUNDATIONS in Me, like never before. You will be baptized in My fire afresh and come forth in such closeness with Me. [It will be] unlike anything you've experienced. You will come forth carrying My fire and glory with such weight. The supernatural will manifest in and through your life [in ways] you have never seen. Favor is going to increase in unprecedented ways. 'Overflow' will burst forth."
His voice then got louder: "You thought you had been taken out. You thought you had died within; but I am raising you up stronger than ever. This is a time of ferocious COMEBACK in your life, and I am raising you up as one who is CARRYING THE NEW WINE. This may have looked like the end and a death to so much, but this is a time of NEW BIRTH and NEW COMMISSIONING. Watch and see what I am about to do.
"Consecrate yourself to Me deeper and know that I am about to do WONDERS IN you and THROUGH you (Joshua 3:5). You came to your end. Now, I've stepped in to launch you into your greatest assignment and greatest days in Me. Many have mocked you, many have looked down upon you; there's been jealousy and words spoken over you by men, but MY WORD and MY favor and vindication [are] about to explode in your life [in ways] you have never seen before. You will see WHY the enemy has been so terrified of you and why the battle has been so intense, because you are NOW being COMMISSIONED into days of greater fullness in walking [out] your assignment in the earth, seeing My glory and My name lifted high and the works of the enemy destroyed, [with] souls, souls and more souls coming into the Kingdom!

Burning with First-Love Fire
"The power of My name [is] manifesting in such power to bring the greatest transformation you have ever seen in your life and through your life. Here is My fire. It's here! You're about to burn with passion and first-love fire in an unprecedented way.
"Your ears are receiving My fire right now to hear with a depth and accuracy like never before. Your eyes are receiving My fire right now to see in the spirit in greater depth—to see what I am doing and what I am saying and what is happening in the spirit like Elisha's servant. Your hands are receiving My fire now, igniting the gift of healing in your life that I have spoken to you about for many years, but you have not yet seen. You have only seen the assignment of the enemy over your own body to try to take you out.
"Receive your healing now! Receive My fire upon your hands now, igniting that gift of healing in your life today in Jesus' name. It's time! It's time! It's time! This is a new birth for you [with] new adventures, new territories, new lands; with the greatest of fire and the greatest of fruit."
