There is so much He is pouring out and wanting to do within the Church Body right NOW, and it's a time of hearing and following Him ever so closely...
I pray as you read through Lana's word and what the Lord is decreeing to you right now, that you would see great confirmation of Him moving in your life...even this week! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Over the past few months, the Lord has been speaking to me about consecration and the invitation He's giving the Body of Christ to consecrate ourselves afresh to the Lord and to His purposes.
For many months I have been hearing the Spirit of God decreeing, "COME OUT!" The Lord is summoning the Body of Christ to "come out " in various ways. He's summoning us to come out of the old wineskins, to come out of the old ways of thinking, to come out of compromises, to come out of impurity, to come out of areas of bondage, to come out of areas of sin, to come out of areas of complacency, and to come out of partnering with things not of Him. He also wants us to come out of things He is not breathing upon.
The thundering words of the Holy Spirit, "COME OUT" are bringing the Body of Christ into a greater place of maturity, purity and positioning for the next move of the Spirit of God upon the Church.
There is a weighty invitation from the Lord to consecrate ourselves afresh to the Lord, for there is a fresh outpouring that He is preparing to release upon the Body of Christ. The words that I hear resounding in my heart are, "Ready or not, here I come!" He is calling us, as His people, to be ready. There is a weight of urgency to His words.
The Lord is about to release fresh downloads from His heart and His Word concerning this new era. The Lord is about to release fresh revelation in greater ways than we have ever seen and keys to navigate this new era upon us. In the preparation for us to receive that which the Lord is about to pour out, there is a consecration that He is requiring. The Lord is shifting things, He is changing directions, and He is raising standards.
The Lord is calling the Body of Christ to a fresh place of surrender with our very lives being as altars unto Him, because I hear the Lord saying, "My fire is about to fall! My fire is about to fall!" The fire of God is about to fall on the consecrated places.
"Then Joshua said to the people, 'Sanctify yourselves [for His purpose], for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders (miracles) among you.'" (Joshua 3:5 AMP)
Listen to His Purpose and Go with His Unexpected Directions
The Lord is about to do wonders and miracles and He is looking for those who are consecrating themselves completely to Him and His ways.
The Lord is saying "no" to doors and things in previous seasons that He had said "yes" to. Now, many of you are hearing a "no" from the Lord, and that's because this is a new era and He is moving in a different way; He is moving in new directions. The Lord is moving and leading His people in the unexpected ways. The fire of God and the weighty downloads of Heaven are about to fall like a tidal wave, but those that will receive the fire and carry these weighty downloads are those who are consecrating themselves.
I heard the Lord say, "Do not trade consecration for compromise." Do not compromise on the Word of the Lord. Do not compromise on the rhema word for your life. Do not compromise on the Word of God. Trust Him. He is shifting relationships, He is shifting directions, He is shifting momentum, He is shifting SO much right now and you MUST listen to His voice, not to what's been done before, not what is "popular" and not what man is screaming at you. There is a major transition point we have entered into and are now moving through in the Body of Christ, and CONSECRATION is the word flowing from the Lord's heart. Do not allow fear to bring compromise into your life. (Photo via Unsplash)
NOW is the time for radical obedience. Now is the time to follow the Word of the Lord in the unexpected. What He's asking of many, how He is leading many is unexpected, but He is making room in your life for you to receive the fire He is releasing and the downloads that are coming. These keys that will unlock major breakthrough in this new era will be given to those who have consecrated themselves to the Lord and are living yielded and with their ears close to His heart, listening to the heartbeat of God and His Word and not the drumbeat of man.
God is going to do wonders! The miracles and the greater glory we are about to see, the majesty of God and the harvest that is upon us are unlike ANYTHING we have ever seen.
You Cannot Feast at the Same Tables Anymore
I heard the Lord say "You cannot feast at the same tables anymore."
There is a deep invitation into the secret place with the Lord that is richer and deeper than many have experienced before. The Lord is inviting His people deeper into the Word of God than they have ever been. Where there has been a reliance on teachings or prophetic words "ABOVE" the Word of God, the Lord is inviting His people deeper into the secret place of being consecrated to Him and to His Word.
There is nothing wrong with teachings. It is good to be fed by teachers and leaders in the Body of Christ, but the Lord showed me that there has been an imbalance He is wanting to correct, where many have been feasting on what is being given to them ABOVE their own time and communion with the Lord and in His Word, and the Lord is bringing a healthy balance to these places.
There are also "feasting tables" the Lord is saying to move away from in this new era because He has fresh revelation that He wants to release to His people. By feasting continually at old tables we will hinder the flow of the new revelation that He is wanting to release.
I heard the Lord say, "I am shifting My people from the watering holes of man-made ways and expectations." Rather than drinking from "waterholes of man" and "ways of man," the Lord is leading His people deeper into the place of drinking from the "waterholes of His Spirit" and "HIS WAYS," which requires eyes to see and ears to hear to receive the revelation He is releasing for this new era.
Expect Confirmation This Week
The Lord showed me that, for many, there are going to be MAJOR confirmations of His unexpected directions and call to consecration this week. So expect confirmation this week.
The Lord is about to do mighty wonders amongst us and He is calling us to consecrate ourselves, to be completely yielded and devoted to Him, to carry what He is about to release.
Yield to the places that He is calling you to be "set apart" from and follow His leading even if it doesn't make sense, as it is preparation in the positioning for His fire to fall. His fire is falling upon living sacrifices. He's coming with His fire to consume you like never before. (Photo via Unsplash)
