From the desk of Steve Shultz:
Jesus said that greater works would we do...and yes, that includes YOU! Even as thick darkness covers the earth, we are in exciting times because HIS GLORY WILL BE REVEALED in great measure.
Here are a couple of "sharp" prophetic words by both Chuck Pierce and Keith Miller. Both of these men know a thing or two about moving in great power and I'd take their words here to heart...
Read on for more, but first, here are a couple of great teachings that will help you to not settle for less than God's best and help you to supernaturalize your life:
All Things are Being Sharpened!
Dear Prayer Warriors:
We are now in Zagreb, Croatia and I am getting ready to speak. I wanted to share what the Lord has been speaking to me this week:
"You've been holding a machete waiting to cut your way through and into the place called Future. You have waited and waited and now this knife has grown dull. But now I am sending angelic hosts to sharpen your weapon and assist in cutting you through. Your tongue has even grown powerless in this last season because your faith and hope have been deferred. But this is NOW! I will put MY Word in your mouth. You will speak with a new vigor. I AM sharpening your tongue. Get ready, for all things are being sharpened. Get ready, for you will now cut and your way will open up.
"In your present warfare, there is a sound of inheritance that I'm unlocking. With this sound of inheritance, you'll look back and see how the enemy has tried to capture the way that you were to advance. You have been caught up in trying to save and hold on to that which was yours. You have gotten tangled in warring for that which I gave you. Now you will break into what I have. There's a sound that is going to unlock a hidden contract. There's a sound that is going to pull the pegs out of the door. Your entry way into this new place has been too narrow!
"There is a sound where the Spirit will speak expressively to you. The Spirit will prevent you from moving one step to the right. The Spirit will prevent you from moving one step to the left. My Spirit now is bringing a sound into the earth that will keep you on the narrow way. Where the enemy had you tangled in the warfare over your inheritance, you will now see and say, 'This is the portion that I will take this day.'"
When I was prophesying this, LeAnn Squier began to sing:
"I heard a mouse beginning to roar.
I heard a sound beginning to grow,
The sound of fear letting go, letting go.
I heard a mouse beginning to roar.
He suddenly knew what he was here for.
I heard the mouse beginning to roar.
I heard the sound of fear letting go.
I heard the sound begin to grow.
It moved across the earth changing the way things are,
Changing the landscape.
I heard a mouse beginning to roar.
God says, "For even in your weakness there is a sound that I will bring forth. For the war has weakened you but in the midst of this weakening state, there is a sound that will begin to grow. This sound will take you to a place that I will show you what I long for you to see. For the war entangled around you was based upon what you saw, what you began to war for. But now the order is coming up in your weakness and you will see in a way you could not see. What was small and insignificant in the harvest ahead now is beginning to rise up. The small and weak will become strong in sound. There is something small that is within you that will begin to unravel the greater portion. The small within you is beginning to roar now.
"I can make dead trees come to life if there is any life down deep in the root. I can cause life to spring up. I can cause leaves to bud forth. Call forth the life that needs to sprout now. Legality has tried to surround you. Legal, religious forces have tried to quench your life. But there is a tap spring of life that is down deep in your root. I say now that life is rising. Watch Me cause the life in you to push away the darkness around you in the coming week.
"You once danced and in your dancing life sprang forth. But now through your working you have lost the step. I am causing My people to find their step again. They will dance upon the head of that which has tried to squeeze the life out of them."

Blaze Miracle Paths Everywhere You Go!
You Need Some Dynamite!
But you shall receive power (dunamis: dynamite miraculous power, force, might, strength, enabling power through the Holy Spirit) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you...—Acts 1:8
Dunamis power transforms—trust me! We're not talking firecracker-sized explosions of power here but dynamite force, seismic, cataclysmic power so great that when it comes upon us, we're enabled in such a way that nothing is impossible and everything is possible. It is an earth-shattering, limitless, unceasing, consistent, unending availability of mega-wattage divine power that rattles the world around you.
Have you experienced the kind of power in your life that shakes, influences, moves, and transforms? You need it if you want to leave a legacy for the next generation and following generations.
What Are You Settling For?
If you have not experienced that kind of power, it may be because you have settled for less than God has intended and made available to you all along by His precious Spirit. Many of us are content with partial victories because of a mindset of limitation. People should beg to know Jesus when we walk into a room! Community, marketplace, and government leaders—even kings and presidents—should be calling upon us for wisdom and strategy in high matters. More of us should be in media, on the Hollywood scene, in government leadership, and in places of high influence in the marketplace.
People are coming to the knowledge of the saving power of Jesus, with miracles here and there, with blessings pouring into us; but we are not seeing the greater manifestations of God's might and power, the greater brightness of His glory flowing in and through us, empowering us to see truly incredible transformations.
How He did blaze those incredible historic highways was by flowing in the "rich treasure of His glory" that the apostle Paul speaks about; that treasure that fills you throughout all of your being unto ALL the FULLNESS of God (see Ephesians 3:16, 19) for that incredible, enabling dunamis power in all things. The Spirit of God and power go hand-in-hand.
The Secrets of Jesus' Ministry Revealed
It is no secret!
Revelation 3:1 reveals that Jesus had the seven Spirits of God, and Isaiah 11:2 gives us more insight. The prophet wrote that the Holy Spirit Himself rested upon Jesus. From the Holy Spirit flowed wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge and the fear of the Lord. And the Bible says that Jesus had the Spirit of God upon Him without measure of limit—an unlimited anointing (see Luke 4:18, NLT).
Jesus blew the lid off limitation because He would not settle for a measure or for a limit. Human minds, wisdom, and ability are limited. He had to seek and rely on the fullness of God's Spirit upon Him in wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, and knowledge, which enabled Him to do the things He did that radically changed the very course of history. Only the FULLNESS of God's Spirit satisfied Him. He did not move an inch without that rich treasure upon Him and the Spirit's fullness thereof flowing out of Jesus' heart; His presence manifested in everything.
"If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.' But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified" (John 7:37-39).
Note that "river" is pluralized. This indicates multiple flows of the precious Holy Spirit. One Holy Spirit—seven functions or expressions of Him through you. It all starts with daily deep-to-deep communion with the Holy Spirit so that by His divine power we will be partakers of His nature in us (2 Peter 1:3, 4).
Each of these great flows of the precious Holy Spirit are available to every Believer to help us live in constant increase as we go about transforming the world for His glory. God desires us to see every function and expression of the sevenfold Spirit of God flow in and through our lives for total victory and searing success in bringing in the Kingdom of God. The sevenfold expressions of the Holy Spirit unfolds the deep and mysterious secrets of the Kingdom and empowers you to do the extraordinary so that Jesus will receive glory and honor through His great power working in and through you.
What it takes to transform a city in a day, or to bring home your prodigal, or to change government, or to see masses healed all at once, or to see growth in your ministry or personal life, is His constant manifest presence upon you and the fullness of Him operating through you in wisdom, understanding, might, knowledge, and reverent fear of the Lord. It is an unlimited anointing available to all which removes all limitation and impossibility.
If the Holy Spirit is the FULLNESS of God and God is eternal—ceaseless—then all of the attributes of His Spirit are too. The Lord wants to release in and through your life these ceaseless rivers of living water so that your life would demonstrate daily the mighty and powerful flow of the Holy Spirit, that by His divine power, you can scar the land with His glory. Remember, partial victory doesn't make history!
