“The Lord Reigns”
“Stay within My boundaries, stay within My fortress, for in that place there is safety. I desire My safety and My peace for those who are walking in My ways, so be not afraid and be not alarmed. Be not discouraged by what you hear, what you see, for I do reign. No matter what people may say, I do reign.
I am waiting, I am waiting patiently for all who are Mine to come into the good news that I have prepared for them and then I will come. I will come swiftly and at that time all will know that I reign and I rule. I will not be hidden from them anymore nor will they see Me in My wrath. Rather they will see Me in My love and My goodness. You will see Me in My love and My goodness and you will rejoice forevermore in My presence.
So be steadfast, unmovable, abounding always in every good work for in that time you will stand and having done all to stand, you will overcome in the evil day. When it comes, I will be with you and I will show Myself mighty as I have said I will do.” Jesus

I HEARD THE LORD SAY, “BUT NOW, YOU ARE COMING FORTH AS PURE GOLD!!!! FORTIFIED! REFINED! PREPARED! POSITIONED! STRENGTHENED AND WITH UNSHAKEABLE ENDURANCE!!!”
by Lana Vawser
I had an encounter with the Lord recently and I heard Him say, “BUT NOW!!!” over and over and over. These words “BUT NOW!!!” were so LOUD and so STRONG they carried a breaker anointing on them. They carried the anointing to SHIFT oppositions and to BREAK oppressions and torments.
These words, “BUT NOW!!!!” were the decree of God of the END of a BATTLE! It was the defining marker! The defining encounter to BREAK the battle and intense trials that have been faced by many.
His words thundered around me:
“I am decreeing, “BUT NOW” into the lives of My people to bring the BREAKER and release the NEW OVERFLOW. The enemy decreed, “This is the end”, but I am bringing forth My truth, “BUT NOW, the overflow BEGINS.”
A vision then opened up before my eyes and I watched as MANY of God’s people were being buffeted intensely by opposition and trials.
BUFFETED: strike repeatedly and violently; batter. SYNONYMS: batter, pound, beat/knock/dash against, push against, lash, strike, hit, bang. afflict, trouble, harm, distress, burden, bother, beset, harass, worry, oppress, strain, stress, tax, torment, blight, bedevil, harrow. (Google)
As I watched this buffeting taking place I saw Jesus step onto the scene. He stepped right INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE STORM! He stepped in and He had fire blazing in His eyes. He opened His mouth and spoke:
“BUT NOW!!!!!!!! BUT NOW, YOU ARE COMING FORTH AS PURE GOLD! FORTIFIED! REFINED! PREPARED! POSITIONED! STRENGTHENED AND WITH UNSHAKEABLE ENDURANCE!”
As He spoke His Words came out of His mouth like a HAMMER and Jeremiah 23:29 thundered all around:
“Is not My Word like fire?” declares the LORD “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
The Lord showed me this incredible testing that has been upon MANY in the body of Christ right now. This testing has come through opposition, this testing has come through trials, but the Lord’s voice resounded so loudly, “THE TESTING IS BRINGING FORTH A STRENGTHENING!!”
The Lord showed me the BIRTHING OF WARRIORS is taking place right now in the buffeting, trials and wrestles. He wants to show you more than ever His strength within you in the midst of the battle.
“In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:6-9 – ESV)
“May the thought of this cause you to jump for joy,[a] even though lately you’ve had to put up with the grief of many trials.[b] 7 But these only reveal the sterling core[c] of your faith, which is far more valuable than gold that perishes, for even gold is refined by fire. Your authentic faith will result in even more praise, glory, and honor when Jesus the Anointed One is revealed.[d] 8 You love him passionately although you did not see him, but through believing in him you are saturated with an ecstatic joy, indescribably sublime and immersed in glory.[e] 9 For you are reaping the harvest of your faith—the full salvation promised you—your souls’ victory![f]” (1 Peter 1:6-9 – The Passion Translation)
