Steve Schultz peddler of the Delusory Elijah List is an Enabler of Amanda Wells.
“Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?” And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” Matthew 7:23
Steve Schultz is either one of the most deluded people on the planet or one of the cleverest fraudsters in Christian circles.
It is difficult to understand how this charlatan could have succeeded for so long in working the hoax he has perpetrated on those claiming to be a part of the Body of Christ.
Steve Schultz was a great admirer and follower of false prophet Bob Jones (now deceased) who was removed from ministry on the grounds of sexual misconduct. Bob Jones claimed that the best prophets were only 65% accurate and some were as low as 10%! (That doesn’t say much for the worst of them!) As early as February 23 of 2011, Steve Shultz posted on the Elijah List site:
“I was honored years ago when Bob Jones came to my property. There are few prophets that I almost ‘insist’ that when they prophesy, I listen. Bob Jones is one of them. When he prophesies, I really tune in. Now, I don’t post anyone unless I trust them, mind you, but some I trust even more than others. Bob Jones is one such person. He is my friend and a high-level prophet.”
[So, given that Steve Schultz posted Amanda Wells’ “prophecies” many times, he, by his own admission in this statement, “trusts her”.]
Bob Jones is yet another fake who claimed to have been transported to the throne room of Heaven. The traffic in that “room” must become quite heavy on some days as a growing number of wolves and buffoons claim to visit there on a regular basis. Amanda Wells is one of those who claims to have not only entered the “room” but to have “strategized with the Trinity”. It’s quite incredible that people listening to Wells speak and those who have heard and read these claims, not only believe her but go forward during her appearances to get her blessing in order to be able to experience these “encounters” themselves.
Worse still is the realisation that there are individuals claiming the title of “Pastor” who invite this kind of nonsense into their churches, thus putting their vulnerable and naïve sheep at risk. A shepherd who does not recognise a wolf is not fit to be a shepherd at all! Any person who has attended a Conference or been a member of a church where a Pastor has condoned the delusions of this fake prophet should be by now running away as fast as they can. Listen and take heed fellow Christians:
NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN GOD!!!
How can we say this with unerring confidence? Because the Word of God says so! The Bible tells us that no one has ever seen God (John 1:18) except the Lord Jesus Christ. Exodus 33:20, God declares, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”
Over and over again in the Bible we are given examples of what happened to people when they so much as heard the voice of God and in no case was sitting around and having a chat with Him and “strategizing” something any of them did! There should be red flags raised and screaming alarms going off whenever someone is claiming to have “seen God”. Amanda Wells’ numerous claims that she has been in His presence and had a friendly chat with Him should be enough to convince any sane person that she is s false prophet and dangerous wolf in the church.
But not so Steve Schultz it seems!
When it comes to the “prophets” whom Steve Schultz promotes, it would seem accuracy is not a priority as far as he is concerned: nor would it seem, given his adulation of Bob Jones, and others who have appeared on the Elijah List over time, is moral failure of any concern. And yet this list of bogus “prophets” and their latest fanciful delusions still enjoys considerable popularity amongst some sections of the church body.
And the more prophets who come to Steve Schultz’s “List” the more affluent Shultz becomes as the income generated by the List increases.
The Elijah List’s own claim should be enough to convince people that what they are dealing with is nothing but a collection of whimsical ravings of people who have nothing better to do with their time.
Note the words “what prophetic people SENSE that God is saying”! Could they be any plainer themselves about the fact that they think of these ravings as nothing more than what is something concocted in the mind of certain individuals? By using this evasive phrasing instead of endorsing these prophecies as Words straight from God, Schultz hedges his bets and gives himself an escape plan should any prophecies later prove to be inaccurate. The duplicitous claim that the list posts what people “SENSE” God is saying is by Schultz’s own words, an admission that this list is just a conglomeration of thoughts and fantasies.
Schultz has been cunning enough to tap into a practice as old as time itself.
Fortune-telling. In the same way as myriads of people across the world read the predictions for their star sign in the newspapers and magazines each day, so the deluded followers of the Elijah List reach for their daily dose of “prophecy”. Steve Schultz will even email you a daily prophecy if you subscribe to his “List” of bogus star gazers, dream weavers and fortune tellers.
When Amanda Wells decided she was a prophet from God, Steve Schultz no doubt saw more dollar signs in his eyes and proceeded to promote her. He didn’t have to look far for a ringing endorsement as his good friend Katherine Ruonala who has proclaimed herself to be the head of the Australian Prophetic Council was already singing Wells’ praises at every opportunity.
Did either Schultz or Ruonala check out the credentials and the stories of Amanda Wells? In light of what has eventuated over time, it would seem they did not. But then why would they have any need to do so? After all they are great prophets themselves and if there had been a wolf in their midst would they not have known? Would God not have immediately “spoken” to them and warned them?
The fact is that neither one of these opportunistic individuals is a “prophet”. But both make a great deal of money out of pretending to be so; and those who put credence in either of these two individuals or any of the others claiming to be “prophets” do so because they want to believe. Katherine Ruonala even holds classes which “teach” others how to prophecy. The classes are costly and no doubt a good money grabber for her Glory City Church. We understand that when people enroll in these classes, they are even provided with “work books”! Yes! A work book on how to be a prophet! And the hapless souls who hand across money for this scam spend their time in the classes simply being convinced that the thoughts running through their head are actually words from God. When these naïve individuals become efficient at convincing others that they are hearing from God they can apparently then enroll in an ADVANCED School of prophets! Looking for signs and wonders will NEVER satisfy, and the only sign and wonder we need is Jesus Christ Himself and his suffering and death on the cross in order that we might be saved.
Steve Schultz, Propagator of the Elijah List and Katherine Ruonala, founder of the Australian Prophetic Council, who both at one time acclaimed Amanda Wells as an accurate prophet with a “proven track record”, each, when the plethora of information surfaced regarding Wells being other than who she claimed to be, clandestinely removed Wells and her “prophecies” from their lists. Neither has had the courage or the integrity to explain this sudden erasure of all these previously acclaimed “accurate” prophecies, instead just living in hope that no one would notice or raise unanswerable questions. In the absence of public statements or explanations (much less the outright denouncing of Wells and her fanciful “prophecies”) it is nothing short of astounding that people continue to give credence to Schultz and Ruonala and their self-seeking promotion of every ego-driven, attention-seeking, dope who for some inexplicable reason thinks that every thought that passes through their brains must be shared with the rest of the world as a message from God.
