Katherine Ruonala: "I Heard Him Say, 'Be the Wave'"

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve ShultzWe sure appreciate the prophetic voices of the Lord in Australia. They are our comrades in the spirit...standing and praying for the USA on a regular basis! AND, we get to stand and pray for them as well!

Our friend, Katherine Ruonala, from Brisbane, Australia just sent in this now word with dreams/encounters and fresh words from the Lord.

Here is an excerpt she gives about Australia:

I began to have recurring dreams of a massive wave of healing that was coming to Australia. After my recent dream of the tsunami in November, the Lord reminded me of these dreams, and I heard Him say, "Be the wave." I believe this next wave of His Spirit in our nation is not something we are just to wait for, but we are the wave.

Steve ShultzThat is so, so good. Don't wait for the wave because YOU ARE THE WAVE.

Now read the rest of this incredible word, along with a miraculous healing testimony Katherine shares with it. It's time to BE THE WAVE. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Lord gave me a series of prophetic dreams in November which spoke to His heart for Australia in 2023 and the coming years beyond. I have also included several prophetic themes that the Lord is highlighting for us.

Honey in the Hive

The Lord has been highlighting the theme of honey very strongly at the moment. Proverbs 16:24: "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."

Wisdom is needed to bring words that heal and unify to see revival released in the fullness God has planned. Where there is unity, God commands the blessing; and our words – particularly about each other and different parts of the Body of Christ – need to be carefully considered and brought with grace, as God is wanting to bring a greater level of unity across the Body of Christ in Australia.

Grace to forgive those who have hurt us is available, and the power to speak kindly about them is available by the power of the Holy Spirit (Psalm 133:1-3, Acts 4:32, Romans 12:16, 2 Corinthians 13:11, John 17:11-21, Philippians 1:27, Acts 2, Ephesians 4:3, 1 Corinthians 12:12).

"By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." (John 13:35)

Australia's native bees make honey with extraordinarily high degrees of healing properties. Their hives are not made of wax and propolis like regular bees, but from pure propolis, giving the honey unusually strong medicinal qualities. I believe there is a call to Australians to recognize a special call in this hour to look to Him for healing and to release healing by the power of His Spirit. Already, we are seeing a significant increase in the gift of faith, and we're increasingly hearing testimonies of remarkable, creative miracles. (To watch the incredible testimony of one such miracle, click here).

It takes more than one bee to make honey. There is an emphasis on every joint supplying (Ephesians 4:16). It is a call for Believers to throw off any sense of hibernation and take their place in the hive.

A Dream of a Tsunami Wave

In a dream, I knew that a tsunami wave was imminent. I got out to my car, which was parked in a parking lot, and got all my clothes out, as I didn't want them to get wet. (Cars represent individual ministries, and clothes represent mantles, gifts and callings). (Photo via Pxhere)

Then the scene changed, and myself and a bunch of people were gathered in a high-rise building to watch the beachfront. There were some surges where the waters would come up higher than usual, and each time people would ask, "Is that it? Is that the tsunami?" I would say, "No. What is coming is going to be much bigger." Then the Tsunami hit, and it was stories high. The cars were swept away.

The scene changed and I was with our associate pastor Aaron and some of our team. Aaron was driving us through wildly flooded roads, and I was saying, "Be careful, this is dangerous!" But Aaron laughed and said, "We are safe. This is fun!" Then we arrived at Aaron's house, and he offered us a drink. He came out of the kitchen, and smiling, said, "I made mead!" I immediately assumed I didn't like mead, though I didn't know what it tasted like (I assumed it tasted like beer, and I don't like beer). So, I asked for something different. Aaron just smiled again and said, "I made mead."

When I woke up, I looked up what mead was. Mead is made from fermented honey. I believe, in my dream, Aaron represented the new generation of priests (five-fold ministers) that are going to have a heart for unity and equipping and activating the saints. (Honey is made from all the bees in the hive doing their part to make the healing nectar.) I believe the clothes being brought out the of the car and the cars being swept away speak of a deemphasis of individual mindsets, and a call for people to bring their gifts and callings into the house (the hive) so that the honey (representing healing, unity, and the glory and goodness of God) can be released in a greater measure. We are more powerful and have greater impact together than separate.

I also felt from the Lord that we need to be willing to change our tastes in this coming move. Mead is an ancient drink, but it was new to me, and I assumed I wouldn't like it, even before I tasted it. In this next move, we need to be willing to embrace that which is new and different for us. Interestingly, I discovered that mead is not the bitter drink I assumed it was, but is, in fact, sweet. I believe that many who taste of the new wine being released will be pleasantly surprised!

Be the Wave

Years ago, during the worldwide outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the 1990s (the last big wave), I woke up one morning with an open vision of the word "GALIAH" spelled out in front of my eyes. I didn't know what this meant, and despite my efforts, I was not able to find out. A few weeks later, I woke up with the same open vision of this word. Afterward, I discovered it was a Hebrew female name meaning "wave of God."

After this encounter, I began to have recurring dreams of a massive wave of healing that was coming to Australia. After my recent dream of the tsunami in November, the Lord reminded me of these dreams, and I heard Him say, "Be the wave." I believe this next wave of His Spirit in our nation is not something we are just to wait for, but we are the wave. And as we are moved by the Holy Spirit, the army of God will mobilize like a great swarm of bees, as ministers of healing en masse. Already we have been seeing remarkable, creative miracles, and this will multiply as the people of God are awakened.

How to Mobilize the Army

A second recent dream spoke to how we can mobilize the army to be this wave. I dreamt that prophets were lined up in front of a vast army (the army of the Lord). These prophets had stones in their hands, and some were throwing these stones at the army, trying to get them to move forward. They were yelling criticisms at them like army sergeants, telling them how apathetic and backslidden they were; yelling at them to stop being lazy, etc. However, all their stone throwing was not moving the army. Then other prophets began to throw their stones at the giants that were lined up in front of the army, and as they did, the giants began to fall. As the army saw this, all at once, they swarmed forward and took the territory. (Photo via Pexels)

When I woke up, I felt the Lord say, "If you want to mobilize the army, don't insult them; inspire them" (1 Samuel 17:51-52).

A Harvest of Souls

I believe this mobilization of the army is for a fresh harvest of souls. Signs and wonders and miracles will increase, and evangelists and intercessors will be powerfully graced in this coming era with remarkable faith, healing and miracle gifts.

A Fresh Call to Understand the Power to Bless

Just as the Lord was instructing the prophets to inspire and not insult, I believe there is a fresh revelation of the power we have to bless, and this blessing will see powerful results over the people and plans that we bless (Romans 12:14).

Recompense – The Goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living

The Lord is calling us to believe for double recompense for all that was lost or stolen in the last season (Isaiah 59:18). As we exchange our disappointments, losses, pain, shame and disgrace, God is releasing the divine exchange rate of Heaven – double for our trouble! Psalm 23 holds great significance for people this year as God lays a table before them in the presence of their enemies.
