From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:
This is one fiery word (pun intended) from Katie Barker of Australia. We are watching God move across the nations of the earth...and what a sight it is to see!
People are being stirred toward the things of God and being set ablaze in His revival outpouring, and then taking it back to impact their own lives and communities.
These words of the Lord from Katie are power-packed with revelation for our current day, such as this:
"This is the era marked for My fire. My fire will fall on families, regions and nations. My fire brings alignment. My fire brings justice. My fire brings awakening to truth. My fire leads people to Jesus, the One who baptizes with fire. I am marking this generation with fire. Those willing to submit to My refining fire will carry the fire of My word, love and power to their generation. They will walk in a higher standard of holiness and will be separated out for My purposes. Watch for My carriers of fire who are arising. The word I give them will go forth like fire, and My presence and power will flow through them to impact others."
When God moves and His fire falls, it does many, many things, as Katie shares above.
Are you wanting His fire to move mightily in your midst?
Read the rest of this word and get ready, as God's fire is roaring...and will impact you and your family in this era marked for His fire! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Word of the Lord: "You will see My word go forth like fire, devouring anything in its path that does not align with My plans and purposes. This is the hour where My people will see My word is like fire, and like a hammer. My word burns that which is not of Me and shatters all that is in opposition to My ways. Now is the time to speak forth My word with boldness on the leading of My Spirit, and see My fire fall to annihilate the plans of the enemy and see the path before you made straight. My word is like fire, and as you speak forth My word, you speak forth fire from Heaven. The fire of My word released through you silences the enemy."
"Is not My word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?" (Jeremiah 23:29 ESV)
Character Forged in the Fire and Faith Strengthened in the Fire
"Those who allow My fire to fall on them are those submitted to Me. They are arising, radiating My love and presence, for their hearts are aligned with Mine. My fire has gone to the deep places and burnt away that which is in opposition to My character and ways. Look for these ones arising from the fire. These are the ones who have leaned on Me in the heat of the fire and have allowed My Spirit to transform them. These ones have had their character forged in the fire and their faith strengthened to such heights that they will now step out with ferocious faith, for they have seen My faithfulness and they have seen Me – the One who is faithful.
"In the fire, they were sharpened and prepared. In the fire, they were marked for My glory. They will step out on My leading, and others will see the fire of My love in their steps, hear the fire of My word in their speech and see the fire of faith in all they say and do."
"...so that the tested genuineness of your faith – more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire – may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 1:7 ESV)
"But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold." (Job 23:10 ESV)
An Era Marked by Fire
"This is the era marked for My fire. My fire will fall on families, regions and nations. My fire brings alignment. My fire brings justice. My fire brings awakening to truth. My fire leads people to Jesus, the One who baptizes with fire. I am marking this generation with fire. Those willing to submit to My refining fire will carry the fire of My word, love and power to their generation. They will walk in a higher standard of holiness and will be separated out for My purposes. Watch for My carriers of fire who are arising. The word I give them will go forth like fire, and My presence and power will flow through them to impact others." (Photo via Pxfuel)
"I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." (Matthew 3:11 ESV)
"Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work." (2 Timothy 2:21 ESV)
Roar of Fire
"A roar of fire is coming forth from those who have hearts aligned with Mine. Just as the Lion of the tribe of Judah roars over His people, so too these ones are roaring over their situations, families and regions, and shifts are occurring. The power of their testimony is being released like fire. The power and fire of their decrees are bringing alignment and breaking off that which is of the enemy. The roar of [the] fire of their words and sound is one of breakthrough, alignment to truth and an overturning of the plans of the enemy. The fire of their roar is burning that which is not of Me and is making the way clear, for their roar is one of authority and power. My roar is released through them. They reflect and radiate Me; therefore, they release My roar and sound.
Days Like That of Elijah
"The ones who know My truth and ways are arising, declaring the way of the Lord – declaring the path of righteousness. My fire is falling on unrighteous and ungodly altars. I am calling My people to search their hearts and see that which has been raised up against the knowledge of Me and My ways. Allow My Spirit to reveal ungodly altars and all that is being worshiped above Me. I am calling for deep repentance and a return to My ways. My fire will fall on hearts submitted to Me.
"Many of My intercessors have stood for the turning of hearts to Me in their families and regions. The turning has begun, but more is to come. Now is the time for My faithful intercessors to continue to stand for the turning. Continue to call forth My fire to remove what is unrighteous and raise up and ignite all I wish to bring forth."
"...and he will go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared." (Luke 1:17 ESV)
"My prophets of fire are arising, who declare My way and the hour at hand. They boldly speak My word which goes forth like fire, consuming what is not of Me and igniting the path I have prepared. Their word confronts darkness and their stand of intercession takes territory from the enemy.
"I am calling [forth] these prophets of fire in this hour to prepare the way and prepare My people. These prophets are calling out mixture and compromise that have entered My Body, and are calling My people back to the path of holiness, true repentance and consecration to Me. They are calling My Body to walk in My ways, to My heartbeat and in the power of My Spirit. My prophets are stepping out in My authority and on My word to confront the forces of darkness and declare My purposes and a turning to My ways.
"Just as in the days of Elijah, My fire will fall on the plans of the enemy and on unrighteous altars, and all glory will be given to My name. You will see Me answer with fire and it will be clear that I have sent the fire. It will be clear divine intervention and interruption paved a way, and My glory will be seen in your families, regions and nations. A great turning is at hand, for many will turn their faces to Me in this hour and put their trust and hope in Me. A great exposing is at hand, for My fire will reveal what is unrighteous. A clear divide will be seen between that which is of Me and that which is not. (Photo via Unsplash)
The Fire of God's Word
"You will see My word burn in the hearts of My people. My people will be set ablaze with My word. My truth, love and power will ignite hearts. My word will burn that which has taken root in the hearts and minds of My people that speaks in opposition to My truth. My word will ignite seeds of faith. My word will set My people alight [meaning afire] with the truth of their identity and destiny in Me. The fire of My love and word is washing and igniting a generation. The fire of My word is cutting through that which is in opposition to My truth and promises."
God's Fire Family
"I call My Body a fire family. Just as I am marking this generation with fire, so too I am baptizing My Church with fire. My Body is a family, and all members are needed and have an integral role. All ages will be used in the move of My Spirit. I am sending My burning ones out as agents of fire, and they will set others ablaze with My truth, love and power.
"This is the hour where I am raising up mothers and fathers in My family who will equip, train, nurture and disciple those I entrust to them. They will support and guide them as they walk out their destiny in Me. I am restoring the role of mothers and fathers, for this is the path of restoration to My ways. Even now, I am calling out the fathers and mothers to arise and take their place. I am preparing My Bride through the raising up of My family. My purifying fire is refining and My baptism of fire is igniting. My family is arising, carrying My fire."
