Matching every opposition with opportunity

The reasons why I enjoy the prophetic ministry of Lana Vawser so much are the following: Just like in a church service, a prophetic word is not always for everybody even though everybody hear the prophecy when the gift of prophecy manifests in a service. Sometimes the prophetic word is for certain people present during the service and sometimes it is just for a specific person. Sometimes the prophecy is for everybody. The prophetic words that Lana post on her website are the same. It is sometimes a word for some people, not for everybody who read it. You will know deep in your spirit which prophetic words are applicable to you.

What I like most about her ministry is that the prophetic words are always in line with the word of God. It is priceless! Not only does it contain words of wisdom and knowledge, it also contains predictions and knowledge of future events. It always wonderfully exhorts God’s people. It also reveals the will and the character of God. It reveals the heart of God. It can even be used as study material because of this. Just look at this particular prophetic word that she posted recently. These insights on “spiritual warfare” is absolutely in line with God’s word:

I had a vision while sitting with the Lord where I saw the enemy with what looked like a machine gun, and he would fire shots at God’s people, and lately it had been “one after the other”.. many facing relentless hits.

As this firing was taking place, what was coming out of the gun was a fiery dart and there were countless hits against God’s people. At first many of God’s people were getting hit, wounded and knocked to the ground. The enemy kept firing and I then heard Jesus’ loud, beautiful voice of love and authority and He spoke “WORSHIP!!!!”, “WORSHIP!!!!”, “WORSHIP”… “ASSERT YOUR AUTHORITY IN ME THROUGH WORSHIP!!!”

Many of God’s people that were being hit were on the front lines and I saw them begin to lift their hands in the midst of the firing and they were worshipping Jesus. Their mouths were full of praise that they overcome in Him, that they are ALREADY overcomers, ALREADY victorious. As they are worshipping and in their worship declaring promises of Scripture, I see these fiery darts being released and the atmosphere all around beginning to shift and change. These fiery darts, halfway through their flight towards God’s people became what looked like “ping pong balls”. Light in weight and easily blown out of their line of destination. Some would just drop to the floor mid flight, others would make it to God’s people and hit them, but there was no strength in them, no ‘punch’, just bounced right off them.

Jesus then spoke again “I am teaching you My people to WAR IN WORSHIP!!!! I am moving you to a HIGHER place in Me. A higher vantage point. A higher place of resting in Me, where you live so deeply in worship and so awakened to your authority in Me, that you are shifting atmospheres and the attacks on you are BOUNCING OFF and having NO EFFECT!!!!! This is happening NOW!!!! Don’t be consumed by what your natural eyes see!!! Just keep your eyes on Me, lift up your eyes above what is going on around you and WORSHIP and watch My Spirit MAKE A WAY into the BRAND NEW DAY of VICTORY!!!! Victory that is already yours, but is going to manifest in NEW ways!!!”

I watched as many of God’s people from those on the front-lines to those hiding in caves, all across the body of Christ be strengthened and moving deeper into the victory that is already their in Christ. Where many had been hit so hard with fear and the firing of the enemy, they were being set free in an INSTANT from those chains and going up higher than they had ever been.

Jesus then spoke again “A whole new level is before you. The enemy has been relentless in his firing against you because a WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF FIRE IS UPON YOU!!! The fire of My love, the fire of My presence in you and through you!! You are now transitioning into this new level.”

I AM MATCHING EVERY OPPOSITION WITH OPPORTUNITY

In this vision, I see Jesus standing with God’s people and I look into His eyes and I see in His eyes that He has taken NOTE of EVERY hit that His people have taken, every opposition and injustice. In His eyes, I can see His perfect love burning, I can see vindication, restoration, payback burning in His eyes for every injustice done to His people.

He opens His mouth, looking TOWARDS EVERY AREA that His people had been hit with great opposition and injustice and He spoke “I AM MATCHING EVERY OPPOSITION WITH OPPORTUNITY.” As He spoke these words FIRE was released from His mouth. I watched as the fire went into every area of the lives of God’s people where this opposition had taken root, from finances, to family, to relationships, to ministries, to health, to physical parts of the body and His fire fell. I watched as it was burning away ALL RESIDUE of these attacks. The fire of His love, the fire of His presence was releasing healing, vindication, restoration and payback. A deep healing on many levels was taking place. I watched as His fire was bringing a sealing, a healing, a cleansing and purification, I saw DOORS of opportunities opening all around. They were suddenly appearing out of nowhere and in great acceleration. For every opposition, for every injustice, I saw a door of opportunity opening to God’s people. Not only was the ‘divine matching’ taking place, but the doors when opened, held a double portion in them.

The enemy is going to be so sorry he messed with you as Jesus is awakening you, strengthening you and restoring and vindicating you. Not only is He matching opposition for opportunity, He is releasing upon you a DOUBLE PORTION in these opportunities. NOTHING you have walked through in these oppositions, all the pain, all the heartache, all the weariness, all the constant battles and hits in the relentless firing, the Lord is turning FOR YOUR GOOD!! NOTHING will be wasted but ALL ADDED UNTO YOU!!!!! You will be restored and carrying SO MUCH MORE than before!

It is very interesting to notice that this prophetic word does not depict the traditional view on spiritual warfare. Although the devil is relentlessly attacking many of God’s people with fiery darts of lies, this prophetic word clearly indicates that the proper Biblical way to counter these attacks is through worship. Worship is however not the only weapon that we can use. Our weapons of warfare according to Ephesians 6 are the following: The truth, righteousness, willingness to preach the gospel of peace, faith, salvation and the sword of the Spirit. The practical application of these weapons of warfare are the following: Studying the word of God, getting your mind in line with the word of God, praying, praying in tongues, praising and worshipping God, praising and worshipping God in tongues, meditating on the word of God, learning what the depth, length, width and height of God’s love is, speaking the word of God over your circumstances and over your life. These things are all true Biblical spiritual warfare. The focus is all on God and His word and not at all on the enemy. This is how we resist the devil. We submit ourselves to God and the enemy will flee from us.
