An Encounter with Jesus Concerning The USA Election and Trump

BY: LANA VAWSER OF LANA VAWSER MINISTRY

Recently I had an encounter with the Lord where He showed me an assignment of the enemy that is about to be released into the body of Christ in the United States of America regarding the US election that is about to take place in a little over a month.

Before I share this encounter with you, I want to state this and make it clear that since I felt the Lord speak of Donald Trump in this encounter, firstly I am not releasing this word from any “political standpoint” of reviewing any policies or agendas. I am simply releasing this word from an encounter that I had with the Lord and felt a strong urgency to release it.

Secondly considering the video released yesterday from 2005, I want to say firstly that the Lord DOES NOT condone sin, and by releasing this encounter I am not condoning Donald’s past actions, but felt an urgency to publish this encounter as a warning to the body of Christ.

As I pondered this encounter in light of yesterday’s video, I felt a stirring from the Lord to not focus on the past but what God is saying TODAY in THIS SEASON right now.

I was standing in what looked like a “commission room” in hell and so much darkness around. I saw the enemy and he was about to release a horde of demons upon the earth into the United States with a specific target against believers.

What I noticed about these demonic spirits was that they had blindfolds in their hands and they were ready to “move”.

I asked Jesus what these demonic spirits were and he said that they were “spirits of deception”.

I then heard… “My people that are not pressing in for discernment, to hear My heart concerning the US election and who I have anointed for the next Presidential Term, will be brought to a place right now in this season where they will be blinded by deception. This army that is about to be released into the body of Christ in the USA are coming to blind people to the truth that I have anointed Donald Trump and Mike Pence and the people of God need to hear this so that they keep pressing in for discernment despite what the media and the ‘natural world’ says. Things are going to continue to escalate and pressure intensify to push Donald Trump out, but My people need to take their place and stand with Me to see My purposes come to fruition.”

The sense surrounded me that this is a very strategic moment, a time of urgency and a time to pray even more fervently. The sense of ‘laying down agenda(s) and simply seeking the heart of God for this new season for the nation of America that is approaching.

I felt this reminder from the Lord to His people in the USA to be praying for discernment right now and to lift their eyes up higher. Place not your eyes on ‘media’ or the ‘natural’ but really continue seeking His heart. I felt such a strong sense of an ‘increase in onslaught’ in this US election in this “last leg”, and God’s people are going to need eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying more than ever before.

As I have sat with the Lord on this word, I have felt the Lord’s heart for His people to not get “caught up” in what is going on in the “natural”.

The very heart of this word ultimately was I felt a call from the Lord for His people to “come up higher”. To not be bound up by what is being reported or what is not being reported. The fate of a nation does not hang on MAN, it’s in the hand of the Lord and the ONUS is on the Church right now.

I believe Jesus is calling His people in light of everything going on in this messy situation in the USA with Clinton and Trump, to seek His heart above ALL ELSE.

Put your hope in Jesus. To cry out for the Lord to bring a cleansing and a turning in this nation. To really individually continue to seek out the heart of God and ask the Spirit of God to give eye salve so there may be clear spiritual sight regarding this election and the destiny of the USA.

“Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see” ~ Revelation 3:18

This is not just about Donald Trump/Mike Pence, this is about the destiny and the fate of the United States of America. The Lord sees BEYOND today, and it’s time to really seek His heart and His ways.

This is really a time of repentance for America and calling forth the plans and purposes of God in the nation and a surrendering of agendas to align with His ways, even when we don’t understand. It’s time to stand in the gap more than ever before for a move of God in the nation. I felt that this is a very strategic moment right now, the fate and destiny of the nation hangs in the balance.

Sailing the Waves

This short blog is to release what God has shown me during a short trip to Sand Bar Island, Concepcion, an island in the northern part of Iloilo, Philippines.

I was blessed to enjoy a short vacation with Dlinkers and Unlideals Family last May 13-14, 2016 at Concepcion, Iloilo. It was an amazing trip with so much fun. We had our water splashes on the first day at Sand Bar Island and a long exciting road trip the following morning.

But reality hit us back as we prepared to go back to Iloilo City after lunch on the second day. Nevertheless, it was a memorable trip worth cherishing. But nothing can be more exciting when God begins to talk along the fun moments of life and reveal Himself.

After a long fun under the sun at Sand Bar Island on the first day, God began to speak as we sailed our way back to the mainland. There was a familiar still small voice of God that spoke some truth.

Sitting in a pump boat, God began to shift my attention to other boats who are sailing along side with us. He started planting His thoughts in my spirit.

“Do you know why you cannot see any boat sailing to overtake another even if there are no guide just like a road line? Because they are not focused on where they are sailing. The person who steers the boat is fixed to reach the shore of the mainland. They are not distracted with the sizes and magnitude of waves hitting them back and forth. They are not focused to speed up to be the first boat to land on the shore lines. Rather, they are focused to finish their sail and safely get the passengers to the shore.”

I was sitting amazed receiving such revelation. And God continued His thoughts.

“Just like a person’s life, do not focus on the magnitude of hardships; the ups and downs. But fixed your eyes on the purposed I have ordained over you. There is a destiny that you have to see far off while you sail the waves of life. Sometimes, the enemy will try hard to distract your focus. But keep your eyes on the shore. One day, you will get your feet on the sands of your destiny and you will walk on them. Do not be intimidated with all other people in their own sails. Focus and finish your sail. Because I am with you as you sail the huge waves. Remember, how I walked My way through a storm just to be with My disciples? I am also making My way through the storms that hit you as you sail to your destiny. Focus and fix your eyes on Me and My purpose for you. You shall have your feet on the shore of your destiny.”

This was really an impact to all of us who are overwhelmed with huge waves of life. But God is with us! Keep the faith and sail our way through the waves til we reach the shore of our destiny.

God has his own way of walking through the stormy seas of our life to get to our situations. (Matthew 14:22-29)

Spiritual and Professional Insecurities Exposed

By Eunice Bennett of Eunice Bennett Ministries

Spiritual and Professional Insecurities ExposedDid your pastor try to shut you up because you receive ministry from other ministers..?
The Bible has this to say:

“Those people are zealous to win you over, BUT FOR NO GOOD. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them. (Galatians 4:17, Italics mine)

Ministers, guard and watch yourselves from professional insecurities. It is as bad as worldly jealousy! What should be the right attitude of ministers?

“whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—ALL ARE YOURS, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.” (1 Corinthians 3: 22-23, NIV, Italics mine)

All are yours! Including ministers outside your church, outside your denomination and even those from other countries and races! If your pastor is restraining you from receiving ministry from other ministers, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is the pastor`s motivation for the control that he is trying to assert?
  • Is my pastor afraid of losing me to another church?
  • Is my pastor concerned that his voice will diminish in my life because I opened myself up according to 1 Corinthians 3:22-23?
  • Is my pastor intimidated with other ministers?
  • Is my pastor afraid that I will get a wrong teaching or a wrong spirit? What if the witness of the Spirit of God inside of me is that other ministers are also right in their standing with God?
  • Is my pastor a personality cult who thinks that he is the greatest thing that had had happened in the Church?
  • Does my pastor think that no one can be as anointed, as skillful, as better than he is?
  • Why does my pastor character assassinate other ministers especially when I praise them? Does he want to get all the praises and validation himself? Or can he stand comparison at all?
  • Is my pastor envious?
  • Why am I staying under a toxic leadership?

You can do yourself a big favor if you know how to ask God the right question. The Holy Spirit will show you if you are under a toxic, venomous leadership if you ask Him to search you out.

“…these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.”(1 Corinthians 2:10, NIV)

If the spirit of leadership above you is toxic and has a visceral hate towards other ministers, expect that that leader will throw hostile accusations and condemnations to brainwash you! That`s how darkness works.

Get out of there while there is time!

This blog is food for someone today!

Glory to God!

Bumping a Gossip?

By Eunice Bennett of Eunice Bennett Ministries

Bumping a Gossip
The ideal move:
Glory to glory!
Bad move:
Gossip to gossip!

 

Stay away from people that gossip others, malign others, character assassinate others in order to promote themselves, promote their interests, promote their ministry, or advance their influence on you.

A gossip looked at you as a territory that needs to be won! Gossip brainwashed.

The Word of God however, renews.

In a gossip, you will feel dirty after listening.
You will feel strangulated.
You will feel grieved!
It will unsettle you!
Gossip invites darkness.

With the Word of God however, you are either cleansed, empowered, illumined, rooted and enlivened!

Gossip can spread about another worker, about an office mate, about a classmate, about a friend or another minister.

  • A gossip (the person this time), will strengthen itself by the bad news and mishap of other people.
  • A gossip will use that information to validate himself, sound right and upright to other people but refusing to address his own personal issues.
  • A gossip is flawed in character.
    He is an insecure person that needs acceptance and validation.
  • A gossip lacks substance.
    He will use gossip to fill up the void of his own soul and spirit.
  • A gossip does not have spiritual discipline.
  • A gossip feels like he has an information or a “scoop” so you better listen.
    But once dug upon, the gossip is exposed as nothing but someone who has no sense of worth!

His stories are full of allegations, exaggerations, misinterpretations, illegitimate references, in short – lies!

  • If you fell in the hand of a gossip, sever the relationship.
  • If the gossip is a classmate, an office mate or co-worker, confront the person.
  • If the gossip is your pastor, it is time to move to another church.
  • If the gossip is your employer, confront the issue, verify and clarify, and start looking around for a new boss.
  • If the gossip is you, it is time to put the coals of fire in your mouth so you can stop!

Start talking a sanctified conversation and manifest a holy life today!

The Bible has this to say:

“Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler. “(Proverbs 20:19)

The gossip will say: this story is only between the two of us..!

This blog however is spreadable. Spread it around so the gossip will stop..!

The Gap Between Spiritual and Natural Influences

Many times in the Bible, there are changes and circumstances that were influenced and even halted by forces. Many will see it only from the natural eyes. But beyond what seems to be the source is a more complex and deep influencing factor mentioned in the Book of Ephesians.

Ephesians 6:12

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

We, as a people of a God who moves beyond the natural senses of man, should know how to deal with this. When God said in Isaiah that His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways [1] , He was pointing out the limitation that a human mind can contain for the moment in time. But when we were born again under the influence of the Spirit of God, we became the partaker of God’s divine nature which includes His mind as revealed in Christ’s ministrations during his humanity. From here, as Paul said in the first Book of Corinthians, we have the mind of Christ [2].

Because we are a tripartite being [3], we become the contact point of the spiritual realm and natural realm [4]. And we have to live not only by the interactions within the natural realm, but ultimately the spiritual realm. There are parallel effects happening in between these realms as presented in the Book of Matthew about binding and loosing [5]. And understanding these realms and everything in between will require God’s gift of revelation. It is when God reveals this beyond human mind can handle that we gain full understanding on what is happening in a situation. I discussed a more deeper understanding  of God’s gift of revelation in Fire Brand’s first eBook, Explosion of Glory.

Understanding these realms is actually very crucial for us to bring and impose change and revival in a nation, church, family and personal life. It is because the natural realm, as seen mostly in the Bible, is dominated by the principles imposed in the spiritual realm. And these principles ultimately is followed across in between these realms. These principles and precepts are actually God’s way of revealing our safe zones.

Now, when we see interaction in these realms, we either apply these principles or not. And by this, there is a divine network being drawn across ourselves. It is because when principles and precepts are applied, we are aligning ourselves to a divine network.

What is a divine network?

It is a group of people aligned having the same purpose, position and portion. See Fire Brand’s first eBook, Explosion of Glory for a broader discussion. Within this network, God moves strongly in impartation. His revelation spreads across the group.

This is important because for a person especially those who are in position of influence, a divine network will somehow define the spiritual covering. A person will be defined by the company he is in because of the spiritual and natural influences.

What is a spiritual covering?

It is a dominant spirit taking full control in influencing a finite and visible being. Now Paul exhorted that every man should be under the headship of Christ as Christ to God. It is very difficult to say that one’s covering is Christ but the spirit’s manifestation is otherwise as presented in Psalm 91.

Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

A person abides where he dwells. The manifestation will define the source of ministration.

This is why we have to be very careful especially those who are influential in the natural sense such as politician, minister, celebrity and public figure. Whoever goes with a person will somehow affect the impartation and spiritual covering unto the influence carried in his personality. For human senses, the influential spirit will be very subtle until its manifestation is revealed in the natural. That is why we have to look beyond the natural and see the spiritual influences.

This is very important to every leader of every mountain of society (sphere of society). The society is now facing all kinds of shifts in the leadership. Now, we have to be aware of this. We have been releasing articles about shifts and other prophetic leaders around the globe are into this big change.

Yes! Revival is coming and is at hand. But when the spiritual corruption is not cut off, all other defiled spirits will be conjured easily because of the spiritual issues left unresolved over the land.

What happens when a person of influence is under God’s covering?

Let us look at Joseph and what his influence brought to Pharaoh and to all Egyptians in Genesis 41. I believe every Bible believing Christian knows the run of this biblical account.

Revelation Over Recession[6]

When Pharaoh had a dream in a series, it disturbed him and his senses and looked for someone to interpret the dream. And no one in the land, no magician and sorcerer can give an accurate interpretation until he found Joseph. Joseph gave his interpretation which was an economic shift about to hit the land. Pharaoh found it very convincing and convicting that he recognized the divine covering of Joseph [7]. Pharaoh chose to find other sources more than those who are already in his courts. He submitted to what God revealed to Joseph and that gave him the information to what is coming under his watch. Recession will be a negative impact on the governance. God will reveal information that will be necessary for a leader to act upon.

Protection Over Destruction

Because Pharaoh submitted to what God revealed to Joseph, as he follows what was spoken, he had a preventive action imposed in the land. Now, we can see here that influences over a person with position such as Pharaoh is very important in leadership. And because Pharaoh had Joseph as his influencing factor being a voice he personally chose to speak unto his life, position and decision, he was under the spiritual covering of Joseph as Joseph is under the Spirit of God. As he had some preventive measures implemented in the land, they were protected when the famine finally hits them.

Prosperity Over Poverty

As famine hits all other region, Egypt was very secured that they began to sell goods and crops to other inhabitants. This paved a way for prosperity to enter the land as they trade what they have for the survival of other regions. Prosperity is all over Egypt while turmoil and famine around them. All because the Pharaoh is under a divine spiritual covering by virtue of Joseph’s presence.

God is now both raising up Joshua who will move in leadership and Joseph moving as the voice of God.

Joshua will be used to lead everyone else to promise land of God. And God will be using prophetic voices around Joshua to cover him in the spiritual battle ahead, just like Joseph to Pharaoh.

What is the spiritual covering and influencer of our leaders and leaders-to-be?

God will release leaders who will move under the righteousness and truth. It is up to us how we can recognize them and their influencers. Because once these leaders are placed on the right positions, we will see the growing manifestation of the Spirit of God.

Three very essential aspects of society will be greatly affected by this leadership shift!

Revelatory Aspects

  • We will see a fast wide spread of the Word of God to unreached places because God is moving by Himself.
  • We will see more of God’s revelation of Himself moving in the natural realm across the media.
  • We will see knowledge on all branches of science to break out with new discoveries that are biblically anchored.
  • We will see a sudden progress on the quality of education being setup across the world.

Protective Aspects

  • We will see moral standards neutralized and raised back to God’s standard.
  • We will see peace and security over the face of the earth.
  • We will see the sudden drop of crime rates in records.
  • We will see wars being neutralized.
  • We will see life sentenced to die being extended; healing and all other miracles will be very visible.

Prosperity Aspects

  • We will see the rise of third world countries to a place of financial security.
  • We will see the downward spiral of poverty rates.
  • We will see an eradication of scarcity in all forms in every land.
  • We will see new businesses and job opportunities to arise across global scale.

 

One word to sum this up. REVIVAL!

  • Every barren and waste place will be revived in productivity.
  • Every life that was wasted will be revived in God.
  • Every household broken and divided will be revived in restoration.
  • Every hope lost in the circumstance will be revived.
  • Every peace that was buried down deep will be revived.
  • Every dream that was forgotten will be revived.
  • Every joy ran out will be revived.
  • Every purpose crushed into the ground will be revived.
  • Every nation, tribe and tongue will be revived.

Revival is coming and is at hand! Are we ready to stand?

 


We, especially those carrying a certain position and influence, should filter associations and voices that will speak and define our personhood, purpose, position and portion not for ourselves but for people who are under our care and responsibility because revival will start to pave from the top downward.


[1] Isaiah 55:8 – For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.

[2] 1 Corinthians 2:16 – “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

[3] Tripartite being means consisting of three parts namely: body, soul and spirit.

[4] Spiritual realm means the intangible environment and everything in it exclusively beyond the physical, mental and emotional aspects. Natural realm means the tangible environment and everything in it inclusively all physical, mental and emotional aspects of humanity.

[5] Matthew 18:18 – Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed[f] in heaven.

[6] Recession is a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced

[7] Genesis 41:38 – And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?”
