Why are we challenging The Elijah List?

Elijah List

Half way through last year, we informed our readers about the Elijah List, who ran it and what it was. We emphasized how The Elijah List tries to “publish the most credible prophetic words possible through “tried and tested” men and women of God.”

Shultz states that he,

“connected MANY of God’s prophets with each other via what has been published by them. For every prophetic person who publishes a prophetic article with us, we include their email or website address so that we are sowing into many prophetic ministries. Many prophets who formerly had no connection with one another now do — and they’ve done conferences together, sat on prophetic round tables, and have since held one another jointly accountable.”

What is the Elijah List & who is Steve Shultz?

Last year, before the Australian Prophetic Council, we were contacted by a group of Concerned Christians who had created the website “Weeding Out Wells” to expose Amanda Wells’ plagiarism.

Working together with the Concerned Christians, we put Shultz’ prophetic network on display and officially launched the ‘GUESS WHO? ELIJAH LIST CHALLENGE: The Culprit in the Pulpit’ game.


Our plan was to announce who the False Prophet was when the head of the Elijah List (Apostle/Prophet Steve Shultz) would be speaking at Katherine Ruonala’s Australian Prophetic Summit. None of these so-called “Prophets” were able to predict in advance the fraudulent lifestyle of the culprit, who was also a guest speaker at the Australian Prophetic Summit.


Before revealing who the Culprit in the Pulpit winner was from the Elijah List, the Concerned Christians contacted the Culprit (Amanda Wells) privately and called her to repentance.

When this did not occur, the Concerned Christians alerted Katherine Ruonala (Amanda’s head pastor/prophet), to this issue. This is what Katherine did:

Actions speak louder than words: Ruonala updating Prophetic Summit before Culprit in the Pulpit was exposed

After the Concerned Christians alerted Amanda Wells and were blocked, they noticed she started pulling down her articles. They also alerted others that were speaking at the Australian Prophetic Summit just prior to the event. Below is the article that expands on these events and also links to a number of articles that expose Amanda Wells’ plagiarism.

Elijah List Challenge ‘Culprit in the Pulpit’ REVEALED!

Concerned Christians also attempted to alert EVERYONE on the Elijah List to help deal with Amanda Well’s plagiarism. The majority of them ignored the warning.

Elijah List Prophets fail to hear from God about Amanda Wells’ continued plagiarism

However, a few took the time to respond:

Conversations with Johnny Enlow
Conversations with Lana Vawser
Conversations with Lance Wallnau
Conversations with Theresa Phillips

One who DEFENDED Amanda Wells’ plagiarism was Lana Vawser. Amanda Wells continued to proclaim her innocence on social media and attack us for her exposing her theft.

Vawser defends Amanda Well’s plagiarism; attributes lawlessness and the demonic to the Holy Spirit?

From November 2015 – November 2016 Katherine Ruonala, Amanda Wells Senior Pastrix and Prophetic oversight, ignored Amanda Wells’ plagiarism, concealed her crimes and continued to endorse her publicly from the stage of Glory City Church as a prophet.

Katherine Ruonala continues to knowingly endorse a plagiarist

This past week, however, the Concerned Christians updated the “WeedingOutWells” website.  What did Amanda Wells do in response? Cover up her crimes again:

‘Manda On The Run: Wells attempts to cover-up her theft

However, this past week, we worked with the Concerned Christians and once again contacted all of the Elijah List Prophets to update them on the CONTINUED plagiarism of Amanda Wells.

Thankfully, both Lana Vawser and Katherine Ruonala informed us that Amanda Wells’ plagiarism is being “investigated.” (At this time we are not publicizing Katherine Ruonala’s messages.)

On top of that, when Ruonala contacted the Concerned Christians, Steve Shultz of the Elijah List started ‘weeding out’ Amanda Wells’ prophecies off his Elijah List Website:

BREAKING NEWS: Shultz hits the fan by weeding out Wells from Elijah List

However – now the problem gets more interesting. The person at Weeding Out Wells wanted to remind us of this endorsement given to both Katherine Ruonala and Amanda Wells by Steve Shultz (founder of Elijah List).

Now Steve Shultz has pulled “the Words” from “prophet” Amanda Wells.

What does this mean?

The Elijah List is part of a world wide cult known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). (Please note, the majority of those listed are drawn to NAR for the  power, prestige).

The New Apostolic Reformation cult preach a false Jesus, false gospel and New Age metaphysical teachings and strategies in an attempt to bring heaven to earth.

The New Apostolic Reformation cult.

On the Elijah List, are some of the NAR’s top Apostles (aka NARpostles). They include Cindy Jacobs, Chuck Pierce, Steve Shultz, Bill Johnson, Johnny Enlow, Lance Wallnau (Amanda Wells plagiarized his work) and many others. However, some of these figures are part of the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders (ACPE).

Who are the NARpostles of the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders… and what is it?

But this is the problem. If the Elijah List is about an NAR Apostolic and Prophetic network holding “one another jointly accountable,” why was NOT ONE APOSTLE INTERESTED IN HOLDING OTHERS ACCOUNTABLE?

And where was God the Holy Spirit warning them about Amanda Wells?

Why was it that *shock! horror!* CHRISTIANS who don’t claim to be Prophets and Apostles (and don’t believe in the five-fold ministry heresy), showed MORE SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT AND LOVE FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST then the whole NAR Apostolic/Prophetic network?

Where were these so-called “Apostles” of the ACPE to clean up this prophetic cover-up on the Elijah List?

Apostle C.Peter Wagner (someone recognized as the highest influence in the NAR), stated that Apostle Cindy Jacobs founded the ACPE. We contacted her last year and she did nothing. Now Shultz has pulled Amanda Wells’ prophecies. What does that say about his Apostolic integrity on the ACPE if he chose to ignore this issue last year when we contacted him?


We want all of our readers to think seriously about what C.Peter Wagner has said about the New Apostolic Reformation and how he marked it in contrast to MORAL and LEGAL duty of Christian church denominations.

If we do NOT consider this movement a dangerous cult, something worse will happen.


“Some of the authors I read expressed certain frustrations because they found it difficult to get their arms around the NAR. They couldn’t find a top leader or even a leadership team. There was no newsletter. The NAR didn’t have an annual meeting. There was no printed doctrinal statement or code of ethics. This was very different from dealing with traditional denominations. The reason behind this is that, whereas denominations are legal structures, the NAR is a relational structure. Everyone is related to, or aligned, with an apostle or apostles. This alignment is voluntary. There is no legal tie that binds it. In fact, some have dual alignment or multiple alignment. Apostles are not in competition with each other, they are in cahoots… [Source]

Below are the names and faces of all those involved in this NAR “relational structure” who
REFUSED to do the right thing in dealing with the behavior of Amanda Wells.

(They’re only doing something now because… well… Concerned Christians (who they call heresy hunter, haters, religious, etc) are attempting to hold them accountable to God’s Word.)
