Nate Johnston: "A Fresh Anointing as We 'Wait' and Encounter Him"

Nate Johnston
Dec 20, 2017

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

I really enjoyed this word by Nate Johnston...as many have said God is increasing our anointing and our authority in this day. It's happening!

God will bring His weighty presence as we "wait" on Him...and this is what we'll see as God increases our anointing:

We are about to see signs, wonders and miracles like we have never seen before. We are about to see such an increase in gifts and Kingdom power that will mark the Church for her glorious days ahead. Even more importantly, we are in the days of visitation where weighty five-fold revivalists are emerging who have paid a high price in the secret place and carry the heart of Heaven to shift nations in every sphere and in every mountain of influence.

Yes, we are in great days of influence!

I encourage you to get in that secret place and wait on the Lord...and let Him bring His weightiness on you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

HR



Several weeks ago, I had an encounter with the Lord that spanned over several days. The glory of God was so thick that I couldn't sleep until 3:30am for three nights. All I could do was sit there in the dark, rocking back and forth, praying and worshiping the Lord. As I lay there rocking under the glory, the Lord showed me a new, fresh anointing coming upon men and women of God who are hungry for more of Him.

On the first night I was so tired, yet the glory just wouldn't lift, causing me to tremble and shake to my bones. I said, "Lord, can I sleep?" He said simply, "Wait."

Then He began to come even weightier and stronger, until I could barely handle it. The same encounter happened again the following night, and again I heard "Wait." Then the same occurred on the third night. I realized by the third time that there was something in the waiting, and it was the key to what God was doing.

"The earth is groaning and Heaven is responding."

Joshua waited or "lingered" in the presence of God and he was entrusted to lead God's people after Moses. David spent endless hours in the presence of God, and he took down giants and turned the heart of his nation toward God in radical worship. There is something in this hour to laying everything down for the encounter that echoes throughout eternity.

He Must Increase

I was drawn to the fact that it was 3:30am every morning when I was finally about to sleep. The Lord drew me to John 3:30 which says, "He must become greater; I must become less." There is something so powerful about an encounter that the person who leaves it, is not the same person that went in. We become less and He becomes more. We have the privilege in this life of living as an altar to the Lord, continually giving Him all of us in exchange for all of Him.

My heart has been so affected by these encounters that left little room for any desire for self-promotion, agendas, or even my own ideas or plans. Allowing Him to become greater means I must "empty myself" and become less.

The word for greater in the above verse is the Greek word auxano which means "to increase and grow". I believe the Lord is saying that this is a time of an "increase of the anointing" in the earth, as sons and daughters seek His face.

Sons and Daughters of Thunder

I feel so much expectation for the coming year and that we are in a time of Him adding to us and increasing us. This is because of the time we are alive, as we are called to be a burning, shining light more than ever before. It is our Isaiah 60 mandate playing out before us and something tells me we haven't seen anything yet.

We are about to see signs, wonders and miracles like we have never seen before. We are about to see such an increase in gifts and Kingdom power that will mark the Church for her glorious days ahead. Even more importantly, we are in the days of visitation where weighty five-fold revivalists are emerging who have paid a high price in the secret place and carry the heart of Heaven to shift nations in every sphere and in every mountain of influence.

The earth is groaning and Heaven is responding. The church pews are being shaken and eyes are being opened. Hearts are beings stirred that were once laying numb and dormant under the weight of past defeat and failure. I see currently active apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers who are being awakened to a new sound and a higher frequency that will cause them to "come up higher" to taste and experience the fresh fires of intimacy and partake of the feast that is being spread. Sons and daughters of thunder EMERGE and let out your mighty potent sound which will proclaim to the world that Jesus is alive and the Kingdom is here!

Disruption is the Enemy of Encounter

Recently I heard the Lord mention the word "disruption" to me. At the time, I was suddenly finding it hard to focus, press in, and concentrate on one thing. I felt scattered and was quickly losing my peace. I felt to look up the word and found its definition: disturbance or problems which interrupt an event, activity or process; to throw into disorder, to break apart.

"We are about to see signs, wonders and miracles like we have never seen before."

I have sensed this overt assignment of disruption in the last few weeks especially, which is attempting to prevent conception and numb people to the affection of God, and so they avoid the secret place. The enemy wars intensely against the secret place because he knows it is an encounter that brings the greater anointing. When we become apathetic towards His presence, it creates a stalemate in the spirit, giving opportunity for the wrong seeds to be planted.

I have had many conversations with others who have experienced the same assignment of disruption. If you have felt the same, take authority today and command it to go in Jesus name!

The Invitation of Fire

Recently while I was ministering I heard the Lord say, "There is an invitation for fresh fire!" I watched as the Holy Spirit poured Himself out reigniting hearts. What I sensed was that God is inviting people into His fires of separation from the things that held them back from walking in their true destiny. There is a purifying taking place that is not just aligning hearts to the Lord and preparing the Bride, but it is a purifying which is removing the chaff, the blockades and barriers withholding the Church from her fullness and destined measure of impact.

God is calling us to be like those in Acts 2 in the upper room, who were sought Him until the Spirit came like a mighty rushing wind and flames of fire! There is a fresh hunger that is unleashing the response of Heaven. This truly is the hour of a fresh baptism, and just like Samuel laying down in the temple, God is calling your name and saying to "come and sit and wait in His presence" until the very thing He desires to impart and give to you comes.

I pray that you would be stirred to greater levels of hunger today, that you would decide to leave the shores of familiarity, and say yes to the fresh fires of His love that will rebrand and refuel you for the greatest days of Kingdom exploits. Say yes to the waiting, to the lingering, to laying down in His presence, and you will never be the same again. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
