From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:
This is a most encouraging word from our friend, Ella Onakoya of the UK.
As you read through this article, you can tell she is fine-tuned and in sync with Him and the heavenly revelation she receives.
We are in a season where God's blessing, favor and answered prayers are manifesting in great measure!
Read this awesome word from the Lord that Ella gives us:
I hear in my spirit, "Release your war cry in prayer as you decree, 'My nation and community belong to Jesus!' Release the anointing of the holy One who will drive out the invasion of the army of darkness from your home, church or nation."
Now that is how important YOUR PRAYERS are for your nation and your community. As you read the rest of this word, don't ever think your prayers don't matter...because God is telling us just how important they are.
Be empowered in Ella's word as she also gives insight regarding your authority, angelic assistance coming your way, and God's wealth transfer in the season of unusual blessing and favor! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Elijah List & Breaking Christian News
Our Lord and Captain of the hosts of Heaven, Jehovah Sabaoth, has made adequate preparation for victory and protection for His Body in this season. This is a season for the overcomers who will step into new dimensions of authority to fulfill assignments and destinies under the protective covering of the Lord.
A Dream for the Body of Christ
Fairly recently, the Lord gave me a dream where I was on a journey, taking a connecting flight in order to get to my destination. As I waited at an airport for my flight, suddenly dangerous men entered the airport. They seemed to be part of a drug cartel.
As the evil men appeared, simultaneously, angelic help entered in human form to give me assistance. They surrounded me as a shield of protection so I would not be harmed. At the same time, they helped me by ushering me to my connecting flight so I would get to my destination on time.
As I made my way, surrounded by this angelic help, suddenly the Lord opened my eyes to see a mantle He had put on me that I had been unaware of. It was a war uniform; I was dressed as an army commander, and I was carrying an AK-47 rifle slung on my shoulder. The Lord also opened my eyes to see the treasures I carried with me.
Immediately, as the Lord showed me what I was wearing, a new level of boldness and authority came on me, and I felt no anxiety as I made decisive steps surrounded by the angelic help that guided me to my destination.
I woke up from the dream with the revelation that it was not only a personal dream, but it had key revelations for the Body of Christ at large.
The Rise of a Joshua Generation
Territories will become extensions of God's Kingdom on Earth. Do not be anxious about the enemy's plan for your nation or community. God is raising up a Joshua generation who will possess their spheres of influence for the Kingdom as they walk in righteousness, obedience and readiness to release God's Kingdom at every opportunity.
Release Your War Cry!

The Drug Cartel
In the dream, I saw a dangerous drug cartel that God had protected me from. I believe, as we walk in union with Him in this season, the name of our Lord will be made renown as monuments of evil are displaced by prayer and authority.
Your Mantle and Your Full Armor
Romans 13:12 stirs us to awaken and put on our armor of light. It is not a season to slumber but to be alert in the Spirit.
Several Scriptures, including Ephesians 6:10-18, encourage us to wear our full armor. In my dream, the revelation of the garment I was given by the Lord to wear awakened me to my authority so the assignment could be completed. The mantles and garments given to us as sons and daughters of God carry the authority to help us fulfill our assignments, whilst the armor of God defends and helps to protects us.
AK-47 – a Machine Gun in the Spirit
In my dream, I was carrying an AK-47. Our weapons given from Heaven are not carnal or physical, as described in 2 Corinthians 10:4; but nevertheless, they are powerful to pull down every form of stronghold.
The Lord revealed to me that when we pray in tongues, the power that is released is able to demolish strongholds of the enemy in a way that is similar to a physical AK-47 being used in combat during war.
1 Corinthians 12:10 talks about speaking in diverse types of tongues, and the interpretation of tongues, as gifts of the Spirit. Diverse type of tongues can be different in purpose and use. I would often sense the difference when I am speaking in tongues for the purposes of dismantling demonic fortresses and when I am speaking mysteries to God, or giving a prophetic message in tongues.
Several years ago, whilst on a mission trip with another ministry leader, I was asked to pray for members of our team who were under attack. As I prayed, the leader remarked that the tongue I spoke sounded like machine gun in the spirit. To the glory of God, the team felt God's freedom after. At times, when some have sought my prayers to help set them free, I've sensed a shift in the operation of the particular tongue I was speaking in prayer to set at liberty the bound or oppressed person or community.
How encouraging to know that the tongues of the Holy Spirit which we speak can release such victories. I believe the Lord wants to encourage you to believe Him for the manifestation of diverse tongues in the Spirit. Evil monuments will be dethroned as the Lord brings victory when we pray in the Spirit.
Angelic Escort and Assignments
The purpose of the angelic presence in my dream was to protect, cover and guide. We are to believe God for the release of His holy angels around us and, as we do so, learn how to partner with them. If you want to know more about angelic assistance in our lives, please read my previous article published by the Elijah List: "Angelic Assistance Is Being Released on the Earth Today!"
In the dream, I was carrying treasures that the enemy seemed to be after. In this season, I believe the Lord wants to release a transfer of wealth to His Church, specifically for the spread of His Kingdom. Watch out and believe for a wealth transfer, and the treasures of souls delivered from darkness for a great harvest. Believe and pray for the activation of the gifts you carry within you.
The Cross – Our Assurance That the Battle Has Been Won
This is not a season of battles where we have no hope of victory. On the contrary, the Lord is encouraging us that all that we need for our victory has been accomplished on the Cross. In John 19:30, the Lord released His spirit and cried out, "It is finished!" when He knew He had accomplished all we needed for our victory. (Photo via Pixabay)
Be encouraged by this testimony:
Recently, one of the students in my school of ministry told me she was pregnant after she had already suffered a series of miscarriages. Shortly after this, she had a hospital ultrasound where they could not get a heartbeat for the baby.
I knew the Lord had already won the victory for her on the Cross and prayed for her, commanding every plan of death for her baby to be reversed and for the heartbeat to be restored. I encouraged her not to be afraid and to continue to trust the Lord. A few days later, she contacted me with a praise report that the heartbeat of the baby had been restored and the baby was alive! That battle was won as we declared the finished work of the Cross over her baby.
How wonderful that any battle faced by the praying Believer has already been taken care of by the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. The Cross is the legal premise for our victory!
A Season of Unusual Blessing and Favor
Although this is a season for the rise of the overcoming army of God, it is also a season of blessings. Recently, the Lord reminded me of a dream I had on my birthday, on October 19, 2021, whilst on a ministry trip in New York.
In the dream, I was given a breakfast of oatmeal that was covered with a delicious chocolate sauce. I woke up from the dream thinking I didn't even know it was possible to enjoy oatmeal with chocolate sauce, having never had it before. I mentioned the dream to the pastor who was hosting me and she made the oatmeal with the chocolate sauce for my breakfast. It was delicious!
The Lord used that anecdote to give me a message of encouragement. He delights in you and wants to give you the desires of your heart. He is on course to release to you the delights you thought could never be yours, for He is your Lord who wants to bless you as you drink from His rivers of pleasures.
Trust in our extraordinarily generous God who longs to bless you beyond all that you can ever think of or imagine. In reality, I would have my oatmeal for breakfast in a certain way, not knowing I could have it the way I had it in my dream.
Friends, your blessing is about to look a lot different and even more wonderful than you could ever imagine. I believe that this is not only a season of the rising of God's army, but a season of surprises, blessings and multiplied favor.
