This is a most exciting word for many of God's prophets...God is increasing gifts this hour and bringing much more clarity to the Body of Christ.
I know the prophetic road is certainly not an easy one...as many are persecuted and criticized in what they share. It's a part of the journey. So...I want all of you prophetic people to be freshed and encouraged in Lana Vawser's word here:

The Lord has been speaking to me since last year regarding vision, and how imperative and important it is for the Body of Christ to have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying—to be aligned and engaged with what the Spirit of God is saying to the churches.
Since crossing over into 2018, I have been sensing an incredible amount of confusion in the atmosphere. There has been a lot of fear that has been swirling around, and the Lord has been showing me many who have been battling with "confusion" over the vision.
Upgrade in Vision—New Realms and New Depths
"...He desires that the prophets would keep wisdom close, stay yielded to Him and His Spirit and stay low in the secret place."
Many prophets are now moving into an upgrade of vision. The Lord is about to take you into a realm of hearing from Him and seeing through His eyes that is on a level you have not experienced before. The Lord is going to take many of you deeper into the Word—into stories that you have known all of your life—but in this season, the Holy Spirit will unlock some of the greatest keys of revelation that you have received.
I saw many prophets so deep in the Word of God, so deep in the truth of Scripture and encountering Jesus, that the Lord was releasing these keys of revelation which were then being birthed into arrows of fire. These arrows of fire were then going to be released as prophetic words into the Body of Christ and they were going to bring a change of direction, a cleansing, a purifying and an igniting.
For there are encounters upon many prophets in this season where the fire (like the fire John the Baptist carried to prepare the way for Jesus) is going to be imparted into these prophets. The prophets will be rising up in such increase in strategic prophetic words from God, and with greater accuracy and clarity, which will call the Church to prepare for the greatest move of God we have seen upon the earth. The voices will rise up more and more with the sound of "Cleanse your hearts, prepare your hearts—He's coming!"
They will carry not hearts of judgment, criticism or slander, but hearts of love, hearts of encouragement, and hearts to bring correction with love and rooted in Biblical truth. They will speak the words of the Lord with such integrity and purity, because they have been in the heart of the Father. They have not sat with the Father just to "get words". They have remained in the heart of the Father to hear what He is saying, to know Him, and to carry His heart wherever they go. As a result, every word they release will be full of His encouragement, edification, comfort and exhortation. (Photo via Unsplash)
Declaration Over God's Prophets
Because of the prophetic words that are going to be entrusted to many prophets in this season and the level of fire and breaker anointing upon these words, the enemy has come in against many of them with such confusion, fear and attack on vision.
I prophesy over these prophets of His heart:
You are about to move into a whole new world of vision. This is your greatest season of encountering the heart of God. This is your greatest season of intimacy with the Lord thus far. Many of you have been feeling an attack on your intimacy and secret place, and that is because you are moving into the greatest season of intimacy with the Lord that you have ever had. The Lord is about to entrust you with some of the most beautiful, treasured, amazing secrets of His heart; firstly because you are His friend, and He shares His secrets with His friends, and secondly to prepare the Church.
I prophesy that you are about to see FIRE UPON THE VISION. Where the enemy has attempted to bring confusion and such fear upon the vision God has for you and through you for 2018, you are not only about to see with tremendous clarity, but you are about to see the fire of His presence, His love, and passion increase within the vision.
You are going to see further than you imagined. You are going to see with sharper clarity than you have seen, and you are going to release the fire of God in such increase as you prophesy. The favor of God is going to fall upon the words that you speak as they are spoken from His heart with love, humility and integrity.
The Lord will take His words through you and they will spread further than you can imagine. This won't be for your glory, but for the glory of God and for the words of the Lord through you to bring change, breakthrough, healing and comfort to many; but most importantly, to draw them closer to Jesus and to know His ways.
Keep Wisdom Close and Stay Yielded and Low
In this increase of vision, with a greater entrusting of words from His heart and favor, I felt the Lord release a warning to me for prophets: He desires that the prophets would keep wisdom close, stay yielded to Him and His Spirit, and stay low in the secret place.
"Many prophets are now moving into an upgrade of vision. The Lord is about to take you into a realm of hearing from Him and seeing through His eyes that is on a level you have not experienced before."
For in this divine upgrade of vision—of greater entrustment with His heart and revelation—I saw the enemy looking for ways to come in and to cause pride to rise in the hearts of the prophets. I saw the enemy looking for the places in the hearts of prophets that were not yielded or places that were wounded and not surrendered to the Lord. In these places the enemy wanted to come in and bring a temptation of pride. The Lord showed me that the safeguard is staying close to Him. Stay yielded. Stay low and surrendered in the secret place and stay accountable to others. Keep short accounts with the Lord and let not the exhortation of James 1:5 leave you:
"And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and He will give it!" (The Passion Translation)
"As wisdom increases, a great treasure is imparted, greater than many bars of refined gold. It is a more valuable commodity than gold and gemstones, for there is nothing you desire that could compare to her." (Proverbs 3:14-15 The Passion Translation)
"For wisdom comes when you adore Him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that's wrong." (Proverbs 3:7 The Passion Translation)
Some of the encounters and the revelation from the Lord we'll experience and release will be so weighty, so beautiful to bring such a shift in the Body of Christ, that you must surround yourself with wise counsel and community. Stay deep in the Word and remain in the place of humility; close to His heart so the enemy will find no entry point. (Photo via Unsplash)
Prophets of His heart, the season upon you with the Lord is glorious. Take heart, for the attack on your vision and the confusion has been to prevent you from moving into this deeper place of intimacy and revelation with the Lord, but the Lord is breaking it. You are truly moving into a whole new glorious day with the Lord and a level of prophetic understanding unlike you have known.
The heavenly encounters, the throne room encounters, the encounters with His glory will leave you undone. Continue to invite His fire to come and to do all that He needs to do in you and through you. Watch as some of the most powerful words are released through you in this season to prepare and equip the Church to receive, recognize and see the new move of His Spirit upon us. It just may look very different to what they expect. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
