THE ELIJAH LIST Feb 16, 2018
From the desk of Steve Shultz:
We’ve been posting words, even this week, about a cleansing happening across the Body of Christ. And yes, God is also cleansing His prophetic stream…
I am sure that this was a hard article for Lana Vawser to write, but I appreciate her taking the time to hear God’s voice over His prophets and write this out. What I appreciate from Lana is her way of writing this in compassion and love…and with great Hope for God’s sons and daughters.
It’s really true…“For the LORD corrects those He loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights” (Proverbs 3:12).
Read this powerful and sobering word from Lana…and let the Lord in where He wants to purify you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

“A Word for the Prophets: God is Purifying the Prophetic Wells”
Lana Vawser, Brisbane, Australia
The Lord recently interrupted what I was doing and came in with His beautiful presence, which led to an encounter with Him and this word came forth. I feel this is a very important word for the prophets right now.
A Season of Separating
Many prophets have been going through some intense opposition and battles – especially in the last few months. The Lord showed me that in the opposition and the battle, the enemy has been attempting to “separate” God’s prophets from what He is about to release them into. Yet, in the middle of the battle, the Lord is also separating. The Lord is bringing a separation in the hearts of the prophets. The fire of God is falling upon the hearts of the prophets right now to burn away and to separate any places where “affections of the heart” have turned towards anything but Jesus.
The fire is a recalibration, a refining, a reawakening and a shaping that the Lord is doing. He’s doing a deep molding of the heart, bringing about a deeper place of yieldedness to run after nothing else but Him. No more chasing after just titles, a big ministry with more favor, but He’s bringing them to a deeper place of beautiful brokenness.
“The revelation and insight the Lord is going to release through these heavenly encounters to the prophets that yield will be such weighty revelation, such deep insight and foresight that when it is declared, SUDDENLY things will be established.“
He’s bringing His prophets to the place of deeper hunger for nothing else but Jesus which is found in the fire of God. There is a call from the Spirit of God upon the prophets right now to yield to His fire and allow Him to do what He needs to do within them, so that they can move into the new thing that He has for them. I saw the Lord breaking off competition, fear of man, entitlement, jealousy and other things, and bringing the prophets to a deeper place of purity.
A Contamination of Complacency and Compromise
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “A contamination of the wells has entered. A contamination of the wells has entered.” I then had a vision and I saw the wells that many prophets were drinking out of were CONTAMINATED. Things had “entered into” the wells and were contaminating the “pure flow” of the Spirit of God through the prophets and the prophetic words He was wanting to release. I saw the wells labeled, “COMPLACENCY AND COMPROMISE”. These were areas of the heart where these places of complacency and compromise had taken root.
The Holy Spirit spoke again, “I love you too much to leave you here. It is time for a WHITEWASH in My Word.”
“…For He died for us, sacrificing Himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God. All that He does in us is designed to make us a mature Church for His pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him – glorious and radiant, beautiful and holy, without fault or flaw.” (Ephesians 5:26-27 The Passion Translation)
The Lord showed me prophets having deep encounters with Him (deeper than they have ever been) and they are happening through the Word of God. There is a deep circumcision of the heart and recalibration taking place out of His love. He is bringing about a deep maturing in the Word by the Spirit of God because of where He wants to lead them.
“For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet. It interprets and reveals the truth thoughts and secret motives of our hearts. There is not one person who can hide their thoughts from God, for nothing that we do remains a secret, and nothing created is concealed, but everything is exposed and defenseless before his eyes, to whom we must render account.” (Hebrews 4:12-13 The Passion Translation)

The new season is upon the prophets to release His heart. Their hearts must be prepared in greater ways for the increase that He is bringing. The character of the prophets is continually being sharpened. He is looking for the prophets that will yield to His fire, yield to what He is doing, so they will be able to carry that which He is releasing. What He is bringing forth and what He is about to release is SO weighty.
Restoring the Fear of God to the Prophets and then to the Church
The Lord spoke to me that there are encounters in this season upon the prophets that will RESTORE AND INCREASE THE FEAR OF GOD in their lives. I saw such deep, profound, incredible encounters with the Lord like in Isaiah 6 that will bring about:
• A deep cleansing, purifying fire to consume all that is contaminated.
• A deeper place of the restoration and increase of the fear of God in their lives.
• A greater commissioning to take the Word of the Lord out in new assignments.
These encounters are not something to be feared, they are something to be embraced. In these Isaiah 6 encounters, a greater awakening of the WEIGHTINESS of the call to carry the Word of the Lord is being increased. It is a beautiful privilege to “carry His Word”. He wants hearts burning with His fire to CARRY, STEWARD and RELEASE those words with PURITY. He will birth a greater discernment so that prophetic words won’t be released too quickly or flippantly. They will be released with right heart motives while the prophets carry, steward, mature and chew upon those words until they are to be released in the timing and way of God. Being ANCHORED in the Word of God is upon the prophets and the Body of Christ right now in such a deep way that its result will be a beautiful, divine balance of Spirit and Word.
The Lord showed me there are deep, beautiful encounters with Him, His power, His majesty and glory that have begun to take place, but are about to significantly increase and then get released into the Body of Christ.The prophets are calling it forth. They are preparing the Church to receive it in greater measure. What God is about to do is going to leave the Body of Christ speechless and in awe of who He is and His majesty as the King of glory steps in. This will produce a shift within the prophets and the Body of Christ that will awaken and restore holiness.
Heavenly Revelation Like John the Beloved
“The fire of God is falling upon the hearts of the prophets right now to burn away and to separate any places where “affections of the heart” have turned towards anything but Jesus.“
The Lord showed me that as the prophets YIELD to all that God is doing in this season, He will lead them into a season of encounters SO rich and SO heavenly, that they will be likened to the heavenly revelation and encounters the Apostle John experienced in the book of Revelation.
John the Beloved’s revelation and experiences were unparalleled in terms of the unique assignment God had for him. That said, even though the details of John’s encounter and the details that were revealed to him were unique to John, I do believe that we can experience the same types of encounters. I mean this in terms of the Spirit speaking to us, taking us up into His realm, and giving us insight on what He is doing! And of course, all of this will be harmonious with what is presented in the canon of Scripture.
The Lord showed me that only those who YIELD, only those who SURRENDER, only those who SEEK will be ushered into this season to encounter His heart. Only those who yield will get to see in the heavenly realms and to prophesy what is to come. What He is going to release and entrust to the prophets in this season requires a deep yieldedness, a deeper brokenness and dependence upon Him. They must be able to release what He is showing them without taking glory for themselves or any contamination, but live in a place of deep intimacy and purity. They must be living first and foremost in His heart with no agenda but to know Him.
The prophets are going to experience in greater measure encounters like John had in Revelation 4:1:
“Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me, and the trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning broke the silence and said ‘Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.'” (The Passion Translation)
The revelation and insight the Lord is going to release through these heavenly encounters to the prophets that yield will be such weighty revelation, such deep insight and foresight, that when it is declared SUDDENLY things will be established. We will see greater signs and wonders accompanying the Word of the Lord as a result. The natural realm, in greater ways, will confirm the Word of the Lord. There will be sudden transformations and shifts on many occurrences in the nations and the world, as the prophetic decree of the prophet goes forth. (Photo via Unsplash)
What has begun to be released upon many prophets is about to increase. The weight of it and the privilege of what He entrusts to them will leave them in awe of who He is and a weighty fear of God to steward it well.
Wave of Repentance
A great wave of repentance is taking place right now and will increase as the fear of God is encountered again by many prophets. Many will be on their faces before Him, repenting for any ways the prophetic words have not been stewarded well. If there has been any compromise, any complacency, they will repent. Because of this wave of repentance, He is embracing His prophets and releasing a beautiful, fresh awakening and privilege to move in the office He has assigned to them.
Many tears will flow in this season from the prophets as they are broken in the most beautiful way by the revelation of the privilege it is to carry His Word. The question is: Will you yield? (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
