Lana Vawser: “Come Away Does Not Mean Delay”

Here is a prophetic word from Lana Vawser from September 21 , 2017:

Over the past few weeks, I have been hearing the Lord saying over and over “Come away, does not mean delay.”

I saw an invitation from the heart of the Lord as we have moved into 5778 and as we move into 2018, that there are specific calls from the Lord amidst the acceleration, amidst the breakthrough, amidst the increase of favour to “come away.”

There are going to be very specific moments in this new season where the Lord is going to be calling His people to ‘come away’. That DOES NOT mean delay. There is a “come away” that the Lord is releasing in the NEW BEGINNING.

The “come away” is going to look very different for many. For some it will look like not stepping taking some opportunities that come their way, but rather the Lord saying “wait”. For others, it will be a sabbatical, for others it will be a change in focus and direction, whatever it looks like, there is a “Come away” invitation in this new season and into 2018, that will be a place of “making room” in the new beginnings of what God is doing.

Some of you will be called to a time of rest, but in that rest, you will see God do more than you have ever seen. There will be DOUBLE birthed in the rivers of rest.

The “come away” is actually a place of increase, it is actually a place of greater fruitfulness, it’s a place of birthing, it’s a place of desires fulfilled, it’s a place of reset, restrategising, it’s a place of recalibration.

Lana Vawser’s heart is to encourage believers in deeper intimacy with Him, equipping them to hear His voice, so they may have deeper revelation of who He is and their inheritance in Him.

Now is the Time To Walk in the Spirit

For He says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you,” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.  2 Corinthians 6:2

Seven years ago the Lord had me study how angels came to people in the Bible to deliver messages.  One morning my husbands alarm watch went off at 5am although he did not remember setting it. At the same time an angel appeared to me with the message, “Now is the Time!” Without even thinking, I began to softly sing “Now, Now is the time to worship!” I sought out to find out what Now is the Time meant. I found it that Now is the Time has many deep meanings. Time on heaven is not the same as time on earth. We can do things now to prepare for the promises that God has given us and then REST in Him to do the rest of the work. I do believe that Now is the time for a great harvest revival.  As the time in heaven meets the time on earth a NOW moment appears where God’s heavenly plans are met on the earth and carried out.

We are going to need to walk in the Spirit to take part in this revival. To walk in the Spirit, we need to know how to pray in the Spirit. We need to know how to hear God’s voice. We need humility to give God all of the glory. We need to pray God’s prophetic words exactly in His will. I talk about all of the steps to position ourselves for revival in a book the Lord asked me to write called, “Now is the Time to Walk in the Spirit.”

The Power of Life is in Your Tongue

It wasn’t until recently that I began to realize the power of Proverbs 18:21, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (NIV). Do you have something that you want to see turn around in your life? Proclaim it: out loud! I speak healing in my family in Jesus name!  Combine this with scripture and you have a very powerful prayer combination. We can even personalize it by using someone specific’s name that we are praying for. The Bible said the angels harken to help us when we speak out scripture. “Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!” (Psalm 103:20, NAS) and
“Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word” (KJV).

That means that when you speak out scripture, angels even harken to help you!

Let’s try a praying using a verse:

Isaiah 41:10  “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Now insert your name or the name of the Loved one that you are praying for. I am going to use my son Landon.

“So do not fear, for I am with Landon; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen Landon and help Landon; I will uphold Landon with my righteous right hand.”

I see a lot of peace from Landon already. He is a first born who struggles with perfection and worry but God is bigger!

 

Now is the Time for the Authentic

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. John 4:23-24

True Worshippers will worship in Spirit and in truth.
 This generation is seeking authentic worship – lives laid down for God and to love others. They are also seeking the Holy Spirit- the authentic Spirit of God.
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
We have come into a time where we are discerning what is fake and seeking the authentic. It flows over into all areas of our lives. Instead of margarine, we use butter. Instead of buying things made in China, we buy local. We are also seeking the true God.
Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
If pure or true religion is to visit the fatherless and widows then impure or fake religion is performance. It seeks to please man over God. You will miss out on some of life’s greatest events if you are trying to please man.
There is also a religious spirit that is not from God but is a need to earn God’s love. It always says, you have to do more, pray more, read your Bible more. You can never do enough to satisfy this voice from the enemy. God’s grace is sufficient to satisfy the opposite of this.
True religion says I will love others and help them. False religion says I will appear to be religious to look good for others. The religious spirit is being discerned and it is on it’s way out of the church. Amen! Everyone to some degree may struggle with a false religious spirit given by the enemy.
If you feel this attack of the enemy could be bothering you, pray with me: I pray God would heal the religious spirit of performance in my life and His grace would overflow in these areas. I pray He would fill me with His Holy Spirit.

Now is the Time for Revival! God is Accelerating the Church!

We pray for revival often but we are not always ready for revival when God is ready to make it happen. Starting now, God is Accelerating the church so we will be ready for revival!

Get ready! Things that would normally have taken you years, will be done in days! People will get set free from sickness, debt, mental illnesses and anything they need to be set free from!  God is on the move! Your breakthrough is here!

God wants to use you to help other people who have to walk in your shoes! The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few! Will you be a part of the harvest? You will if you believe God can use you, not for your benefit, but for His glory!

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

‭‭John‬ ‭14:12-14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

We will have fresh waves of God’s glory poured out on us. Light was meant to pierce the darkness. Just because things appear to be chaotic doesn’t necessarily mean they are for God’s people. In fact, light shines best in darkness!

Go Shine Young Men and Women of God! Shine with the love of God! Love even harder. Love, together with the Word and the Holy Spirit’s power, can do great things for God’s glory as we learn to Walk in the Spirit.

Broken Wings

Broken Wings

This is a year of new beginnings, breakthrough, and divine reset.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” Isaiah 42:9
It hurts sometimes when our wings are broken by those we love. A friend sent me a picture of a church sign that read, “Don’t break a bird’s wings and then tell it to fly.” The sign turned out to be the sign from my parent’s church. It had an impact on many people.

The Lord declared to me that this is the season where He will place His loving balm on those who are broken. Even God’s own children have been wounded. Some may have been wounded by the church or family members. It cuts deep when you are wounded by someone that you are supposed to be able to trust. You may have had someone hurt you. You may have lost a loved one. You may be numb from the life events that have come your way. God longs to heal your pain. God has taught me that He will gently lead me back to the painful events from my life in His timing to heal me, allow me to release forgiveness, and set me free! This season you will begin to feel new freedom in your situations. Where you were once numb, you will slowly start to feel again! Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9).

 

There is something interesting about those who have had broken wings. They feel deep compassion for others. They feel compassion that they might not have felt, had they not gone through their trial. God is going to use what you have been through so you can help others who have to walk in your shoes. You can turn the hard times into something beautiful as you help someone else. Do you struggle with believing that God can use you to love others? God longs to use you to love others because He says that “the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Luke 10:2).

 

I had a vision that I was fishing and the fish I caught were very slimy. The Lord told me, “the people you are about to share my love with are going to look messy but do not throw them back.” The Lord is doing a new thing. It will look different. We can’t have an old wineskin for what God is about to do. We have to be open to the new thing He is doing. This revival will be for the broken ones, the prodigals, and the outcasts.

 

“‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness. I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land. I will tend them in a good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land. There they will lie down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord.” Ezekiel 34:11-15

 

I think sometimes we get comfortable with what we are familiar with, especially in the church. God is looking for people who will step out of their familiar comfort zone. He’s looking for loving, “good samaritan” hearts, people who will stop and help someone in need and not pass them by. He’s looking for those who will do these things without the need for praise from others. He’s giving those who are willing a divine reset to learn to walk in the Spirit. One of the things that has truly helped me walk in the Spirit right now is to block negative media voices. I only read and listen to things that will uplift my spirit. With social media there are so many sources of information trying to bombard us. We can take what is available to us and use positive resources to encourage us. This has been a huge key to victory for me. I personally enjoy Charisma Magazine and Elijah List. God has told me that He is bringing His glory back to America. The first wave is already here. This will help us have revival!

I pray you have an amazing year!

 

“Don’t break a bird’s wings and then tell it to fly. Don’t break a heart and then tell it to love. Don’t break a soul and then tell it to be happy. Don’t see the worst in a person and expect them to see the best in you. Don’t judge people and expect them to stand by your side. Don’t play with fire and expect to stay perfectly safe. Life is about giving and taking. You cannot expect to give bad and receive good. You cannot expect to give good and receive bad. Does it happen? Yes, but don’t make that an excuse for you to keep doing what you know is wrong. Don’t blame life for what you do. That is too selfish and ignorant on your behalf.”

What Does Walking in the Spirit Mean to You?

Walking in the Spirit for me means spending time with God by talking to Him, reading His Word, allowing the Spirit to guide me throughout the day, and obeying God’s voice. The joy that follows is so amazing it’s worth all the crazy warfare that comes with the cost.

About 7 years ago I received a spiritual gift that greatly accelerated my ability to hear and walk with God. At the same time I was going though something hard and I hit my knees to pray and read the Word. I needed a breakthrough and I began to pray  a lot, even through the night. A week later, I had my breakthrough and I also began to walk in the Spirit in ways I did not know were possible. That week almost every day something amazing happened. My elderly neighbor gave her life to the Lord. The Lord asked me to visit a church and while I was there, God healed a young girl (who fell directly into my arms) from a family history of seizures. I drove to a shopping mall, took what I thought was a wrong turn and began to hear God say, “Go left, go right, turn in there.” I went inside a store and found a young boy who’s mom (the store owner) was telling him he was a mistake. He was clearly distraught and seeking for her love. The Lord asked me to begin interceding and praying for him.

The enemy was ready and waiting for me and after all this I struggled with two big issues- people pleasing and pride. It took me years to flesh out performing for other people and learning to not care what they think but learning to please only God.

Meanwhile I began to wonder, why was I not taught about all this before? God began to teach me through the Word, the mentorship of Godly people He placed in my life, and through the Holy Spirit what walking in the Spirit looks like and how to thwart the enemies attacks against it.

It’s a beautiful dance with the Holy Spirit, a partnership to love others. I would love to hear what walking in the Spirit means to you!

What’s Wrong With the Media?

If you knew someone was lying would you sit and listen to him? Since when did the media start reporting what is not true in order to push their agenda? Probably in the last 6-10 years. I personally have given up watching the news because it’s filled with fear. How do we uncover why the media is so fake these days? It reminds me of a verse in the Bible:

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.  Isaiah 5:20

This is it! The media is twisting everything and calling evil good and good evil.

Here’s an article about a news reporter who admits she was paid to lie.

There is someone we fight who is called the “father of lies.” If we are supposed to cast his lies down, why would we sit an listen to lies on tv?

We need to pray for new media stations to rise up that will speak the truth.
