P.S. – Oh, and a Quick Note to our readers: To EXPLORE our more than 2,500 Christian Prophetic books, CDs, and gifts go to:


While in Branson, MO, praying with the amazing community at Morningside Church as they dedicated their new Prayer Mountain Chapel, the Lord gave me a vision. I believe this vision has everything to do with an assignment He is extending to prophets, intercessors and, well, everyone—on how to effectively pray for the United States of America. (Note: I love all nations, so I'm convinced that within this message is a strategy to pray for other nations too.)
Ask for the Lord's Translation
In the vision, I simply saw the hand of the Lord reaching out to prophets and intercessors, giving them rolled-up scrolls on behalf of their cities and states. Anytime we have supernatural experiences, visions or dreams, we cannot be content with simply indulging the supernatural imagery without contending for an explanation.
The high benchmark of the prophetic ministry is not, and I repeat, NOT how supernatural or spiritual our prophetic words, visions, dreams, and experiences sound. When we receive messages from Heaven they will always come in a slightly "coded" manner. There will be this veil around them, not because God is making things difficult for us, but rather He's inviting you and me into dynamic communication with Him as friends and intimates. He wants you and me to ask Him for the translation—and He is faithful to provide it!
The veil of mystery surrounding prophetic messages from Heaven cannot motivate us to immediately indulge our "push button" society, where we jump out and simply share the word as is, in its uninterpreted, strongly-symbolic or allegorical format. Certainly not. Instead, when we believe that we receive a prophetic message from Heaven, we need to first present it back to the Lord and ask Him for clarity on what it means.
What Were the Rolled-Up Scrolls?
When I asked the Lord what those scrolls were, He told me they were the scrolls for cities and states in the USA. What was written in these scrolls represented God's will and intended purposes for our cities and states; they carried what God wanted for the United States of America. (Photo via Larry Sparks)
Reactive Prayers: Cleaning up Messes Made by the Devil
We cannot pray reactively, we must pray responsively. Reactive prayers sound like we are constantly trying to clean up messes made by the devil. By nature, we are reacting to the very real and present darkness around us. I refuse to pretend away the darkness in our land in favor of a pie-in-the-sky, end-times scenario.
Isaiah 60 gives us a stunning parallel of what to expect in this hour: gross and deep darkness colliding with a people upon whom God arises and shines with superior glory. And that glory is not meant to be contained, but rather have a measurable impact on a society gripped by darkness. Jesus did say we are the salt of the earth and light of the world, which means our presence in the earth should transform things around us.
Responsive Prayers: Responding to What's Written in God's Scrolls
Responsive prayers are not born on Earth; they were birthed in Heaven. They are not motivated by what we "scroll" through on our news-feeds everyday, but rather, they are driven by what's written in God's scrolls for our cities, states and nations.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
The ultimate question should not be what is the devil doing? The question is what is God saying? The truth is, we will pray prayers that are driven by one or the other. We can pray based on what the enemy is doing in our nation—with such prayers sounding frantic, hopeless and full of despair—OR, we can be very alert and in tune with the darkness, while praying superior prayers not driven by what darkness is doing, but are rather influenced by the word and purposes of the Lord.
How to Pray Responsively
Here are some very practical "next steps" on how to pray responsively to what the Lord is doing right now:
1. Refuse to allow darkness and the devil to influence your prayer life. Practically speaking, this means you watch the news but don't pray it. You track world events but don't pray the problems. You don't agree with the darkness. Be very aware of what's going on in the earth, but refuse to partner with the enemy's agenda.
2. Ask the Lord, "What do YOU SAY about my city, state and nation?" The news often tells us what the enemy is saying concerning our nations. This is why the scroll imagery, I think, is so important, especially considering the day and age we live in. We're constantly scrolling through news stories and headlines, being influenced by what we are reading. No doubt many prayers have been crafted based on what our eyes have come across while reading the most recent, horrific news headline. Let's shift things. Let's be very aware of what's going on in the earth, but perhaps more aware of what the Lord wants to do in our cities, states and nations.
3. Specifically ask the Lord for the scroll of your city and state. This is not some mystical thing; it's a matter of the Lord unveiling to you what He wants to do in the place where you live. More than what we see in the news, we want to see what's written in Heaven come to pass in the places where we live. (Photo via Unsplash)
4. Research the prophetic history of your city/state.Often, the unfinished work of the Lord can be discovered by acquainting ourselves with the prophetic history of our cities and states.
Recently, I was overwhelmed by the Lord's presence as He told me things like, "I remember Frank Bartleman. I remember William Seymour. I remember John Wimber. I remember Aimee Semple McPherson." This was all in respect to California, which many tend to write off as perhaps the darkest state in the USA. And yet, there are powerful, spiritual seeds still in the ground. The Lord remembers these seeds and I believe His work is yet unfinished in California. Likewise, it's unfinished in your city and state!
5. Practically ask: "How can I get involved in what God is doing?" Yes, we pray, but oftentimes in prayer, the Lord wants to share prophetic solutions and strategies that demand our engagement. He will tell us to do something so that His will can be released into the earth through you. Of course He is the sovereign God and can do things Himself, but He is looking for agents in the earth realm who He can commission and deploy into every sphere that's been influenced by darkness.
Let's receive what the Lord is handing out to us so we can effectively pray for our cities, states and nations! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Remnant - God says This to You..." Travis Holland, Defiance, OH - The Elijah List

There are many Believers who have spent this last season in a cave. Even though they've been in this cave they have still been encountering God's presence and still encountering His glory, but they feel alone and trapped. In their hearts they feel hurt and abandoned. They feel as though they are the only one who has been going through this in their region, city, and country.
God showed me a golden valley, full of His glory. It was like the fresh, golden pollen of His glory was falling from Heaven upon the valley. As I looked up, I saw the valley was surrounded by mountains encompassing it. In these mountains were a multitude of caves, separate from each other. God said inside these caves were many hurt prophets, apostles, pastors, evangelists, teachers, and fiery-footed sons and daughters who have chosen to dedicate their lives to the Kingdom of God and not religion, money, and self-promotion.
Encountering His Presence But Unable to Hear His Voice
This hidden remnant could not see each other in these caves, and they felt like they were the only ones in a cave season – even though they were surrounded by others just like themselves. There were many that wept alone. There were many who were hurt and had been driven out by other people. It was because of this that they have felt like they were no longer flowing in the same intimacy, vision, and giftings as they had before in the previous seasons. They felt as if they could encounter His presence but could no longer hear His voice as they used to. (Photo via Unsplash)
Suddenly, I heard a clarion call from Heaven. The voice was like a rumble of thunder and lightning but was as clear as a melody of worship. He said, "What do you hear, oh remnant?" They said, "We can't hear anything in tears!"
Then an instrumental of Heaven became louder and louder and I heard the angels and the cloud of great witnesses singing, "You can do it. You can do it!" They were cheering the remnant on. Then God said, "I have not abandoned you. I will give you something bigger than the vision you can see right now. It's time for the remnant to step forth. It's time remnant to arise and shine for your light has come! The glory of the Lord has risen upon you."
Step Out of Your Caves
Then the remnant replied, "Lord, we are all alone, and are timid to step forth." Then God said, "I have many remnant, just like you. There are many in your region, many in your city, many in your country, and many around the world. I never called you to step out and arise alone."
God then spoke again, "I have called the remnant forth as fiery-footed people to arise together, to align together, to run this race together, to bring Heaven to Earth, together. Arise, oh remnant and step out of your caves."
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
As they stepped forward, out of their caves, they saw hundreds of thousands of others who stepped forth too. This mountain range of the remnant Believers was awakened to the fact that they were not the only ones. God had set them apart for such a time as this. They started out of their caves and started a new walk down the mountains to the golden valley that had the glory raining down upon it like golden pollen.
Lift His Name on High
They all came down and locked arms as one Body with one purpose. As they celebrated in the valley, their feet burned with fire upon them, their hands burned with a fresh fire upon them, and when they spoke, like golden pollen, the glory of God flowed out of their mouths as ones that spoke the heart of the Father.
God said, "Look! The ones called 'The Remnant' who thought they were small and alone have now arisen together and aligned together to carry My Kingdom to those that do not know My heart, to those that are hurting and have been crushed, to those that need to have their first love turned back to My Son, Jesus. These ones will be known as glory carriers, fiery-footed ones, nation shakers, and atmosphere changers.
"They will be known for carrying and releasing signs, wonders, miracles, and healings greater than they've seen before. Most importantly, they will be known for passionately loving Me, My Son, and My Spirit, because everything flows from intimately knowing Me and who I created them to be in My Son. They will not do this for their own fame, but they will lift, in unity, My Son's name on high." (Photo via Unsplash)
"...But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. 'Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy..." (Isaiah 60:2-5)
"Remnant arise and come forth! Align together in unity in this new season. I have something greater in store for you."

James Goll: What Are the Next-Generation Prophets Saying? - CHARISMA NEWS

(U.S. Marine Corps/Lance Cpl. Christopher O'Quin/Released)

James Goll: What Are the Next-Generation Prophets Saying?

In every generation, God raises up dread champions who have a "Voice that Can Be Heard"—these messengers carry a clear sound, marked by integrity and the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Revelation, favor and authentic authority rests up on their lives and words.
I remember clearly when ministering on Dec. 12, 2015, at Life Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that the Holy Spirit apprehended me and stated, "This is not your season to birth, it is your season to father." As I continued to worship He continued to speak. "You must identify, empower and release other leaders into spheres of your ministry." I knew I had just heard the Holy Spirit give my next marching orders, and instantly, I knew some of the action steps to take.
One of our clear goals must include the joining of the generations. This is when the wisdom of the older generation is joined with the resources of the middle generation, which is then coupled with the zeal of the younger generation. In other words—three generations in one generation working together. Words and phrases such as "lineage," "legacy," "heritage," "divine inheritance" and even "going for the double" are not just the latest spiritual buzzwords. They are an authentic burden from the Lord to see progressive momentum take place.
We are given a beautiful model of this in Exodus 17, when Moses stood on the hill with his hands held up by Aaron and Hur. As Moses' hands were held high, the next generation, including Joshua and Caleb, was successfully warring in the field!
With this view in mind, I have asked three prophetic leaders of the next generation to briefly describe what the Holy Spirit is sharing with them. I consider each of these anointed leaders as my sons in the faith. Each one carries a very distinct calling to equip the body of Christ to be released into different spheres of society. Let's turn our attention to hear "What Are the NextGeneration Prophets Saying?"

Matt Sorger: 'You Can Be a Carrier of His Glory!'

Matt Sorger travels the world with his wife, Stephanie, and challenges people of all ages and denominational backgrounds to be true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. Matt moves strongly in the prophetic and words of knowledge with signs and wonders following. Recently I turned to Matt and asked him, "What is the Holy Spirit saying today? What message are you carrying?"
Matt immediately responded with a challenge, "Is your shadow dangerous? Are you a carrier of God's manifested presence? Are you hungry for more of God, or have you grown passive and lukewarm?" Though I have known him for years, at that moment, I felt like I was sitting with a true modern-day prophet as his words pierced me. "The Holy Spirit is looking for those who will change the spiritual atmosphere around them. They have become so ruined by the glory of the Lord that they are willing pay whatever price is necessary to see long lasting change come."
Matt went on to cite multiple examples of healings and miracles happening in the nations, telling stories of God's heart for reconciliation being released. Matt closed out our short interview with a powerful declaration, "You can be a carrier of the glory of God!"

Jon Hamill: 'It's a Turnaround Season!'

Jon and Jolene Hamill live in the Washington, D.C., area and are the directors of Lamplighter Ministries. They are deeply involved in multiple aspects of the global prayer movement and are the International Directors of Prayer Storm with the mandate of restoring the Moravian Watch of the Lord. This couple carries a mantle of prophetic intercession.
Recently, the Hamills completed a 50-state tour of the United States, traveling via train and declaring, "It's a turnaround season for the body of Christ from state to state and city to city! It's time to turn the tables on the devil and time for the body of Christ to play the winning hand!" When I asked Jon what the Holy Spirit is saying, he could hardly contain himself. "It time for modern-day Paul Reveres to arise who issue the midnight cry. They carry the lantern of the light of God's Word and expose darkness through the power of prophetic decrees. It is a season of the suddenlies! It is a time when this nation enters into a renewed covenant with the nation of Israel, and we truly are Israel's best friend."
Jon and Jolene carry a revelation that the Lord's Supper is one of the highest weapons of spiritual warfare, and they personally receive Communion almost every day. "We are living in the days of Jeremiah, where we have the authority to tear down and uproot in order to rebuild and plant the ancient foundation of the Lord."

Steven Springer: His Presence and the Harvest Go Together

Steven and Renee Springer are the leaders of Global Presence International and lead a House of Prayer and a local church in Madison, Wisconsin. Coming from backgrounds in modeling and photography, the Springers carry a unique combination of experience in both the marketplace and the church. Prophetic and power evangelism have always been their message.
I asked Stephen"What message are you consumed by?" He answered, "Oh, wow! You know! It's harvest time! It's a strategic season when the manifested presence of God invades the seven cultural mountains. This is a missing key to the great harvest. There is a window of opportunity opened when the Holy Spirit ignites supernatural faith in His people to move in signs and wonders and the greater works that Jesus declared." 
Undoubtedly, these two carry contagious faith and believe that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. As next-generation prophetic leaders, the Springers carry a strong conviction that "His presence is a missing key to the great harvest."

The Power of Joining of the Generations

Psalm 110:3 depicts an amazing time when youth will volunteer freely for the Lord's purposes. "Your people will follow you in the day of your battle; on the holy mountains at dawn of the morning, the dew of your youth belongs to you."  The prophet Joel also describes an unprecedented global activity of the Holy Spirit. "And it will be that, afterwards, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions" (Joel 2:28).
I am seeing with my own eyes that there is power in the joining of the generations. These three couples are wonderful examples of the reality that fruit comes forth from relationally building together.
We really are better together. With strong conviction and delight, I now join in with the shout, "My generation's ceiling really is the next generation's floor!"

Steve Shultz: I thought this was a Strange word from God - THE ELIJAH LIST

Tough year? Some are asking...
“Is God angry with me?”

Nov. 30, 2017

Dear Friend of Elijah List Ministries, 

Can I be really HONEST with you?

    I mean it! It just makes me mad at the devil--and sometimes other well­ meaning Christians--who put it "on you" to make you feel and believe that God is fed up with you, impatient with you or just downright angry with you.

Come on my dear friends, I want to quickly get past that! OK? Deal?

    Now first let me tell you straight... God is up to big things and He has accomplished more things for you in your life (if you could only see it) than most of you would dare to believe right now. 

    And NO: God is not mad at You! (Nor impatient or frustrated with you!)

    Beyond that, what has happened behind the scenes in our government (things both horrible and wonderful) have paved a way for that Great Awakening in America and yes, throughout the earth. God is up to BIG THINGS for America and for you!

    God is not only NOT ANGRY WITH YOU but the Father, His Son Jesus and Holy Spirit are about to have a party concerning your life and the life of Believers on the earth...

"But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet." Mark 13:7

    We must not forget that wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines and pestilences (including fires, floods and earthquakes) were all predicted by Jesus Himself to His disciples as He walked the earth. What we are experiencing here in America is an intense season (like many other seasons that have come and gone) where these very things have been prophesied by the Messiah Himself.

    Jesus kindly warned us that these things MUST HAPPEN. He never told us to ponder if they were from Him or the devil...He simply explained that they will happen and they must happen.

    A significant number of prophets are prophesying a great reformation, a renaissance on the earth, and a Great Awakening to Jesus...the likes of which the world has NEVER SEEN. Jewish people are coming to Christ in unprecedented numbers--Muslims too. The Chinese underground Church is flourishing like never before. The Spirit of God is on the move.
Take heart! Have hope. The Church's most exciting days are straight ahead and YOU ARE PART OF GOD'S CHURCH!

    Scripture makes it clear: Jesus would leave the 99 sheep if you were the one lost sheep--or even "temporarily walking away from the other sheep." Yes, He'd leave them all to come find you and me!

You would have to work much harder than you could possibly imagine for God to be "done" or "angry" with you. He's just NOT the way many picture Him to be.

    During this holy season of Thanksgiving and Christmas on earth, commit yourself to ENJOY OUR SAVIOR who loves you so much that He would leave everyone and everything to come find YOU and YOU ALONE and rescue you from whatever is discouraging you or hurting you.

    Sometimes I just sit and REVEL IN THAT TRUTH!

Grab hold of it, my friend. His love and patient endurance toward us is far past grasping!


God is Moving Massively & Miraculously with Explosive & Growing Mass Communication - to Prepare for & Usher in a Great Awakening!

    Honestly, it's as if God waved His hand over ELIJAH LIST MINISTRIES and "all of God's intentions broke loose" on us. Suddenly, what we have tried for and even STRIVEN for in the two decades of our existence (yes, it's been 20 years this year) suddenly happening now!

    Doors flung open in March and by July, I was speaking at Harvard University, sponsored by the Harvard Faculty Club. God told me 5-6 years ago that I would be speaking at Harvard and suddenly this year, it manifested. I was speaking to a real, worldly crowd and I LOVED it and GOD LOVED IT. Jesus said, "Go into ALL the world." That includes the Harvard world!

    The purchase of two studio cameras was made possible by your generous donations and we've been creating programs right and left. Many of you have seen them these last few weeks.

    We're doing an upgraded version of FACEBOOK Live each Thursday and people are simply loving it. We're only 3 or 4 weeks in, and our audience has well more than doubled and by the time you see this, it may have tripled. Every day, people around the globe read articles or videos that we've sent to almost 300,000 email addresses who have asked to hear from us. (That probably includes you!)

    We have 3 foreign language translations now of our prophetic words: Spanish, French and German, and as of this writing we are closing the negotiations on a KOREAN-LANGUAGE addition that will be ready, not only for South Korea but also for North Korea, the moment that door opens... and it's going to be very soon now!

    We've just introduced SUNIL ISAAC who has agreed to come aboard. After our dear friend Kim Clement went home to Jesus, there was a place here for Sunil. You may recall he did a session each week called, "CODE BREAKERS!" with Kim.

    Now with us, Sunil will be doing the same thing but it will be concerning MANY PROPHETS' revelations. He will be researching and showing how these words are coming true.

    This new part of our broadcast is called, "PROPHETIC DECODERS!" Our readers and viewers are going to simply love it and I can't wait to watch these special one-of-a kind reports myself!!


Here's a Personal Word for You This
Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    As I sat preparing to write this personal letter to you, I stopped and asked the LORD for a specific and encouraging word just for you, one of our loyal supporters. He started with one word: "Candelabra!"

As I looked I saw, as if a camera was showing all kinds of Candelabras—not only the Menorah type but also many other types, with 3, 4, 8, 9, 10 or whatever CANDLES Believers will be using this Christmas/ Hanukkah season...

    The Lord said this...

    Whether you display a menorah or any other type of simple candelabra (no matter how many Candles are on it—electric or real fire-candles) you are pointing to Jesus as the LIGHT OF THE WORLD and "I LOVE THAT!"

    Remember ELIJAH LIST MINISTRY friends, What Jesus loves, He blesses, honors AND REWARDS! Prepare to be blessed this Thanksgiving and Christmas Season!!


    Derene and I have a personal and special request for you, our readers and viewers: Would you consider partnering with us at Elijah List Ministries with your year-end giving? It's what we need to launch the next phase of the ministry.

    God's light from Heaven and from HIMSELF is shining all over you today! His mercies are rich and new, not only every morning but continually on your behalf.

    During this Holiday Season and as part of your year-end giving, would you help us "launch out into the deep" in 2018? That's what I hear God saying: this is our year to totally launch into the deep things of the Spirit this year with Elijah List Ministries.

    Many don't realize that year-end giving for a ministry like ours is beyond important, beyond crucial. People often give the biggest gift of the year at this time and this happens to be the EXACT TIME we need your financial support LIKE NEVER BEFORE IN OUR 20-year history!

    If you are built up and blessed by this ministry would you stop right now and make your best year-end gift to ELIJAH LIST MINISTRIES? It's completely tax deductible and with your gift, you are LITERALLY GOING INTO ALL THE WORLD WITH US TO SHARE THE GOSPEL! That means you share in the reward. That is a fact and a promise; God said so! Derene and I love you DEARLY and we pray for
you often!!

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah - Yeshua (Jesus) 
Zechariah 2:5  

Love For His People

Run, Connect, Pray ✡ "A Binyaminite Ran From The Battlefield And Reached Shilo The Same Day" - Israel365

A Binyaminite ran from the battlefield and reached Shiloh the same day; his clothes were rent and there was earth on his head.

וַיָּרָץ אִישׁ־בִּנְיָמִן מֵהַמַּעֲרָכָה וַיָּבֹא שִׁלֹה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא וּמַדָּיו קְרֻעִים וַאֲדָמָה עַל־רֹאשׁוֹ

Today's Israel Inspiration

The Book of Samuel records that shortly after the Jews entered the Land of Israel, they fought a battle against the Philistines. The narrative continues with a young man from the tribe of Benjamin running from the scene of the battle to Shiloh where the High Priest Eli was awaiting a report. Tradition holds that the runner was a young King Saul who ran 42 kilometers from Eben Ezer to Shiloh. That same 26.2 miles is the official length of an Olympic marathon. As such, this run recorded in the Book of Samuel was the first marathon in history! Today, runners from around the world participate in the Bible Marathon, running in the footsteps of King Saul through the scenic Biblical Heartland of Israel and connecting with their history and faith.

Run the Bible Marathon, Connect With Your Faith

One of the first runs recorded in human history is mentioned in the Bible, in the beginning of the book of Samuel. The Bible Marathon renews this run from Rosh Ha'Ain to Ancient Shilo.

2,000 Marathon Runners Trace King Saul’s Biblical Race Through Shiloh

Deep in Israel’s Biblical heartland, an annual marathon brings thousands of athletes to run in the very footsteps of the Bible, tracing an ancient path run by King Saul himself in the days of the prophets.
