"I Will Give You Houses You Did Not Build!" Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN


In the past month, God has given me four night visions about houses that the true Church of Jesus Christ is about to receive that He will begin to give to them—now. First of all, HE IS SHIFTING PEOPLE OUT OF DENOMINATIONAL SETTINGS AND INTO THEIR TRUE CALLINGS. He said that He has given many of you dreams, visions and prophetic words about what He is about to do in the earth and what He longs for you to do to be a part of the harvest.

I heard this Scripture from Joel 2:28, "And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions."

"Build Me a house for the prophets."

The phrase "dream dreams" literally means they shall revisit their old dreams. God is about to begin to remind these older men and women of the dreams that He put in their hearts many years ago. God is busy visiting people right now and awakening their souls to what He told them He was going to do in days past. One of the things He is about to do is GIVE THEM HOUSES WITH AT LEAST A HUNDRED-YEAR-OLD HISTORY!

These are houses that have many rooms and historical backgrounds to them. God says, "They will go in and drive out the past spirits of witchcraft, Jezebel, Leviathan and religion. My angels will move in and My Spirit will move in, and these houses will become places of peace and refuge for the people brought in from the harvest."

The Glory, Refreshing - He Will Not Be Tamed!

I had a night vision of some grown-up men and women, in the Body of Christ, checking out a house that was all white (signifying righteousness), inside and out. In the dream a woman was showing us around and took us upstairs (signifying a new level). The curtains were white and sheer and blowing in a soft breeze throughout the house (which always means a refreshing to me). But the windows were also allowing in so much sun that it looked like the glory of God. It was so bright throughout the house that we could barely see one another's faces, then suddenly a woman asked us if we wanted to see "the Ghost" (I knew this was the Holy Ghost and He appeared there in a cloud-looking form). I knew it was Him because of the humility that He had.

The Lord said to me through this vision that He is coming to bring this refreshing on the Body of Christ, and there are houses being obtained right now that the Holy Ghost is going to take up residence in. I heard Him say that the reason He called Himself the "Holy Ghost" is because people had "tamed" His name down in the modern church to make the Holy Ghost acceptable in some circles. BUT HE IS COMING IN LIKE HE DID THE DAY OF PENTECOST AND IT WILL BE ANYTHING BUT TAME! Prepare Him a place!

The Biggest Doors Ever!

The second vision was of the same group of people in another house with the same woman who showed us around in the first vision. She began to show us around this older Victorian house, when she took a couple of us upstairs and we asked to see the attic (I believe this signified the highest place in the house and a new level in the Lord).

Steve ShultzWE ASKED IF WE COULD GO IN AND LOOK AROUND. SHE USHERED US TO THESE BIG DOUBLE DOORS, BUT THE DOORS WERE MISSING AS IF SOMEONE HAD KICKED THEM IN! THEY WERE THE BIGGEST DOORS I HAD EVER SEEN! I wanted to see if there were any treasures in there. We went through and saw many treasures that had been picked over, but we continued looking for them and found many things that were valuable. (Photo via Wikimedia)

I believe that God is going to give us these historical places and kick open the greatest double doors that we have ever seen! We will go through them to look for treasures that have been hidden in dark places for over a hundred years! I saw God giving houses to bring those who had been caught in human-trafficking to learn about the peace of God and the kindness of the Father, and be healed of their wounds.

There were other realms of darkness that God was going to open up also. He showed me that many had to be re-aligned and they were going through much stripping and shaking in their churches. But do not despair because He was moving them out once again to do what He had really called them to do in the streets! He said, "ASK FOR THE HOUSES AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE THEM!" He wants to house these people!

God is Accelerating the Generation X and Millennials

God is accelerating the young in their gifting and learning for such a time as this! You will see great growth in the Generation X and the Millennials. They will have been through so much that they will have deep hearts of compassion.

God says, "Don't think it strange when you see them doing strange things to prepare for the harvest. I have set their hearts on fire, so let them roll with it! I am going to give them big visions and strange ways to bring in the harvest. DO NOT TRY AND FIT THEM INTO YOUR OLD BOX OF RELIGION; it will not work! I am showing them this stuff and they will have some crazy faith to go along with it! You have prayed and I have answered!"

"I heard Him say that the reason He called Himself the "Holy Ghost" is because people had 'tamed' His name down..."

When God showed me this, He reminded me of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Richard Dreyfuss' character was building a mountain in the middle of the living room because he kept seeing a recurring vision of it. His whole family left, but he didn't care because he was obsessed with the vision! He looked all crazy, but in the long run, it panned out as many others had the same vision and were drawn to find out what it was all about. God is about to give people that kind of magnificent obsession! Then He is going to show them where to go and what to do, and they will look as crazy as Noah did when he started building the Ark! Get ready and don't panic!

The Heavy Covering of His Presence

The third vision I had was of me and another person who went into one of these old houses; we went into a large basement with maintenance men fixing it up for people to hide in from the religious system and from whatever else was happening outside the house. I was looking around when there was a sudden torrential downpour!

I then realized all of my blankets were outside and I needed them to cover people. I went out in the rain and began to drag the blankets back in. They were so heavy with rain that it was hard to bring them in, but I did. The Lord showed me that the "covering" we will provide for these people coming into these houses will be so wet with the "rain of the Spirit," that they will be hard for us to carry; yet God will help us to cover these new giants of the faith to saturate them with His presence!

Build Me a House for the Prophets

Steve ShultzIn the fourth dream, I dreamt of all these dreams above together when God said, "Awake and prepare to restore and renew these places that I am about to give you, for the harvest is here!" Also, I heard the Lord say about a year ago, "Build Me a house for the prophets." I now know that this is a house filled with mature prophetic teams to raise up these harvesters!

God says, "This is a house that will be outside of the normal everyday Church as you know it. These will be specialty houses for certain people who have been in bondage to many things. Some drugs, some sex-trafficking, etc. DO NOT GO BACK TO YOUR OLD WAY OF DOING THINGS, FOR BEHOLD I WILL DO A NEW THING! Follow My pattern that I will show you as I showed Noah! Do not try and do everything, but only do what I have called you to. Focus on your vision and soon all visions will run into one stream for the harvest. Do not be afraid of their faces but only say what I am telling you to say and do what I am telling you to do! Prepare, prepare, prepare."

Lastly, God gave me Scriptures in this vision that I will finish with:

Deuteronomy 6:10-11, "When the Lord your God brings you into the land He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant."

Isaiah 45:2-3, "I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name."
