By Lana Vawser
Billy Graham, what a man! What a hero of the faith! What an inspiration to so many, myself included. What a powerful legacy of a life lived yielded to Jesus, changed by the power of the Gospel, marked by the love of Jesus, who then went on to change change the world with Jesus. What a reception he would have received in heaven!! To quote Rick Joyner “He ran well and he finished well. He has finished his course.” Our prayers are with his family today.
I knew this day would come and I knew the significance in the earth that this day would hold. I knew this would be the day that I would release this prophetic word that two years ago, over the span of two months, the Lord took me into encounters and dreams regarding what would be heralded and released on the earth beginning with the passing of Billy Graham.
Today is the day, I am to release this prophetic word. I won’t be sharing all the details of the dreams and encounters in this word, but feel strongly I am to release the decrees that were released to me in the first dream.
Two years ago, I had a dream and the Lord told me that the time was coming soon where Billy Graham would be called home. In this particular dream, I was invited into Billy Graham’s house and the atmosphere was full of purity, humility, integrity, character and strength. The atmosphere of his home testified to the incredible impact of his ministry and an example of what can take place in the world through a yielded life to Jesus. There was also another testimony that was almost booming in the atmosphere. There was a loud testimony of a man who lived with such character, such solidarity, such devotion to Jesus and no compromise, not moving from truth and living a life of humility, integrity and purity of heart. I remember standing in his house in this dream and being overcome by the purity and integrity Billy carried.
At the end of this dream, a prophetic decree was made. This was the decree:
“When Billy Graham dies a DOUBLE PORTION of the Elisha anointing will be released upon the earth!!!”
Now it came about when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you.” And Elisha said, “Please, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” – 2 Kings 2:9
As we see from Scripture Elisha’s ministry was filled with signs and miracles, prophetic warnings, prophetic decrees and proclamations. This decree was made TWICE in my dream – two representing “witness”and “testimony”.
As this decree was made the atmosphere was electric. That is the only way I can describe it. It was electric with the power of the Holy Spirit decreeing the end of an era, and the beginning of a NEW ERA, the ERA of the GREATEST HARVEST AND MOVE OF THE SPIRIT upon the earth that we had EVER seen.
This decree heralded a time coming to the earth of great increase of signs, wonders and miracles unlike anything we have ever seen that would accompany the pure proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A great awakening and returning to the beauty, power and simplicity of the Gospel to usher in an incredible harvest of souls. Awakening not only the evangelists, but awakening the fire of evangelism within the hearts of all believers. The anointing of Billy Graham falling upon a generation of people.
The decree established such a branding over this new era that the signs, wonders and miracles that would accompany the proclamation of the Word of God, would be UNPRECEDENTED.
A significant shift, a time of a greater increase of the mantle of evangelism being released onto the earth, to see a great harvest, a harvest that would come from every direction. The bountiful harvest! That time is now upon us. A new era! The changing of the guards! A DOUBLE PORTION released upon the earth! MUCH is going to be released by the hand of the Lord from this moment on. We have been in a season of awakening, acceleration and seeing the Lord move, but the shift has begun to now see the Glory of God cover the earth in tangible increased ways.
A significant increase has already begun prior to Billy Graham’s death on the revelation of righteousness in Christ. The fire of God’s love is going to significantly increase from this day on releasing the FRUIT AND TRUTH of our righteousness in Christ through the revival and returning to the revelation of the message of the Gospel. Condemnation, shame, guilt is going to fall off the body of Christ in significant ways and many in the body of Christ will encounter Jesus and the Gospel message in such a new and fresh way, they will feel like they have been saved for the first time all over again. Scales that have blinded eyes to the truth of their righteousness in Christ and lies caging the heart, will suddenly by healed by the revelation of Jesus, His death at Calvary and Resurrection.
“For God made the only one who did not know sin to become sin for us, so that we who did not know righteousness might become the righteousness of God through our union with Him.” – (2 Corinthians 5:21) – The Passion Translation
“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.” – (Romans 8:1) – The Passion Translation
There was a significant shift and increase of the prophetic mantle upon the earth with the passing of Billy Graham’s passing onto Glory. There would be a significant increase in eyes to see, vision, for what the Lord is doing and releasing upon the earth. There would be a double portion increase of the SEER ANOINTING (2 Kings 6:17) upon the earth, to see in the spirit and the reality of heaven and decree it upon the earth, bringing healing, restoration, peace, realignment, and unprecedented demonstrations of the power of God in signs, wonders and miracles.
A greater increase of the prophets SEEING and DECREEING the ways of God and teaching the body of Christ on the WAYS OF GOD!
The Lord heralded that this significant increase would be released at the passing of Billy Graham. There would also be a significant increase of the favour of God upon many prophets to be voices in the world, that would cause the world to turn their heads, to listen, to admire and to seek for the wisdom of God. We have already seen this happening, but it is about to significantly shift and increase.
This first dream I had clearly showed the increase being released at Billy’s passing and the mantles that would be released upon the earth, but there was also a strong sense in me in the dream to not just chase after a mantle for the sake of wanting the “mantle of Billy Graham” but an invitation from the Lord to look at how Billy stewarded his life and ministry to SUSTAIN the anointing God released upon him.
The sense so strongly in this dream was the Lord was looking for those who were walking in the purity, integrity, humility and character that was displayed by the fruit of Billy Graham’s life.
For the major harvest season we have moved into, for the double portion being released now upon the earth, the Lord is looking for those who can carry it. The Lord’s heart in the dream was burning with love to prepare His people to carry what He is going to release.
There was a STRONG emphasis on the dream on HUMILITY. The place of humility that is the yielded place. You are God, I am not. The place of purity that takes no glory for themselves, but all Glory is given to Jesus. The purity and devotion to Jesus to see Him glorified and His Kingdom extended. Pride will hinder and get in the way of what God wants to do in this new era, in this dream pride and arrogance was not hindering a mighty move of the Spirit of God.
“No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8
“But He continues to pour out more and more grace upon us. For it says, God resists you when you are proud but continually pours out grace when you are humble.” – (James 4:6) – The Passion Translation
The Lord was clearly showing, He was inviting His people into a deeper place of humility, character and holiness, not in ‘striving’, but in yieldedness.
As I have sat with the Lord today the Spirit of God has been whispering to me “With the passing of Billy Graham now shall be seen a great increase in the revival of HOLINESS in My people. An increase of the wave of repentance upon My people, a deep cleansing and purification to move forward with Me into this season of DOUBLE PORTION harvest and anointing with greater fruit of humility and character.”
The invitation released in this first dream two years ago is the invitation He has been releasing in this season, and now is inviting His people into again as we move into the greatest move of the Spirit of God we have seen upon the earth.
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” – (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Embracing the ways of God, the fire of God, inviting the Spirit of God to continue to work in our lives to mould our character, to bring us deeper into the place of humility, integrity and holiness as we partner with Him to see the Kingdom of God extended and Jesus receive His full reward.
God is using the life of Billy Graham to demonstrate and communicate many things, and Billy’s life was one who SUSTAINED the move of God through him, God entrusted him with much, and he could carry it. The Holy Spirit is building a people who are saying “YES” to be able to SUSTAIN the increase He is now releasing.
The Lord showed me in this dream that we must cry out for Him to come on His terms and in His way. That we as God’s people are not to attempt to “box” in this new move of the Spirit of God upon the earth by our preconceived ideas, agendas, fears, or even what we have seen before, but to stand before Him in purity of heart crying out “We want YOU on YOUR terms. We want the move of the Holy Spirit on YOUR TERMS and we won’t stand in the way. We yield, we surrender, we invite you to come and pour out, move, shake, increase and bring in the harvest in YOUR WAY!”
In the words of Billy Graham:
‘I don’t need a successor, only willing hands to accept the torch for a new generation.’
A new day has dawned! A new era has begun! This is a significant moment in history.
Today marks a very significant shift in the spirit, in the earth and in the body of Christ with the passing of the amazing general, God’s ambassador Billy Graham. What God is now releasing is SO weighty, it’s SO strategic, it is SO significant, He’s looking for the FRESH YES and YIELDEDNESS to Him.
“The harvest is HUGE and RIPE! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain.” – (Matthew 9:21) – The Passion Translation
Billy, we love you! We honour you! We thank you for a life well lived, a race run well. You finished strong and well. We celebrate your life, we thank you for the example you were to the world for Jesus and the way you represented Him. Your reward is great! You will be greatly missed on this earth, but we know all of heaven is applauding you and the Lord has said “Well done, good and faithful servant”.
We have willing hands to accept the torch for a new generation.
Thank you for your legacy! ************************************************************************ To be added to Lana’s mailing list please click here: https://www.lanavawser.com/subscription/ To look through Lana’s prophetic archives please click here https://lanavawser.com/prophetic-words/ If you would like to sow into this ministry please click this link https://lanavawser.com/sowing/

    Lana, Your beautiful tribute to our dear Billy Graham was right on describing his humble character & forthright preaching of the Word of God before millions throughout the world was most inspiring. Thank you for your faithful & encouraging Prophecies that keep us aware of what God is doing in these last days. It truly is an exciting time to be alive when God will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, our young men will have visions, our old men will dream dreams. His glory will cover the earth. We truly need a reprieve from all this ungodly unrest in our Nation & the Spirit of God to take over & the Spirit of Billy Graham to cover the earth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Wow, I mean wow. I’m just sitting here kind of in an awe struck moment. First of all, this is good news, because as a Christian woman that I know posted the day of his passing, she felt like now there would be a vacuum left on the earth and I agreed, so this is good news! And makes sense that God would continue to make a way for His work on earth to continue in a big way, so good and encouraging.

    But the thing that is blowing my mind is, we got home from visiting my newly married son and daughter n law Monday night. He was on my mind and heart as I watch him navigate his Christian growth and convictions with such integrity, living and working where he does and hearing him starting to plan and just wondering how it’s all going to come together. He was just on my heart.

    I don’t know why I’ve been in a season where I’m always seeing 12’s (since he got married a year ago) and what it’s supposed to mean, I’ve tried looking it up. Before I went to bed late Monday night, I saw 2 12’s together and then when I looked away and as I was thinking about it, I saw 2 or 3 5’s together. Tuesday, out of desperation, I said Lord, I need to be in your word, I need to hear from you. I don’t even know where I want to go. I’m going to look up the 12th book! It was 2 Kings and the page number shown on the page on the right was 333. And the only verse out of the whole two pages I had underlined was on that page ‘ “let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” Elisha replied.’ I had also read, where I had marked the page with paper, and asterisked the verse and wrote “love it!”, 6:17, that you referenced in your letter.

    As I was thinking about all this that I was just led to coming back from our trip and thinking about our son and now reading it in your letter referencing Billy Graham’s passing and God’s releasing, your dream, I thought, I think today’s date is 2/22, interesting. As I went to check on my phone, and saw that it was, the time said 12:00.

    What do you make of all this (in your humble opinion, if anything)?!

    I would love to hear back from you and if you do get to read this, I appreciate your time.

    This is so so helpful and helps feel like I’m not going crazy. A day or so before billy graham passed, he popped into mymind out of nowhere and I sensed the presence of hand over my head, and felt/heard “I’m anointing you with his anointing.” And immediately I retorted “what kind of blasphemous thought is that? What proud garbage is this?” And I said, “no not gonna let that thought happen again”. And then I had a dream, (I’m not understanding what they all mean yet) of a huge cathedral (notre dame style looking) collapsing in on itself and I remember running inside after it happened on the ground level and seeing tables and chairs everywhere with the smell of bread baking, and I saw all these huge round loaves of bread sitting on these tables (I get had been sitting out for awhile) and only a few people speckled throughout were in there eating but many loaves they were starting to get hard. The sense I got was that I was looking at this place with fondness as if “remembering what it used to be like” but was no longer. I dunno if I’m off, but this post just helps clarify much much needed direction. I don’t know what I’d do without your posts Lana. They have helped keep me on course with the lord and have helped me not give up and have silenced a lot of confusion and lies the enemy had tried to bring against what hard work the lord jesus bc I lacked a lot of knowledge is I it had helped keep me from giving up and perishing. Thank you thank you. But if you can, please pray for me, I am so discouraged by my resistance to lay all my heart down to jesus, there is a lot of pain and guilt in there and the portion of your post talking with character integrity and purity I am just not filled with. He had grown me so much in my character but I know my character and it’s not worthy or capable of stewarding anything like billy graham. I know I’m being called to my heart and life down and go out and speak, but I’m scared and need resolve and strength of character do this. And quite honestly I can’t do it like the condition I’m in. Pray for salvation and unity in my family bc I can’t do this without them with me. But if they choose not to go, please pray god gives me the strength to go anyway. In my point of view, there is no point to me going on unless I go on with him.

      May the Lord bless you and give you strength! I understand how it feels to feel unworthy , not usable by God! In fact, I still fight that. Years ago, I had dream a tall man in a all white shelf clothing. It was the Lord! I saw only up to the chest , he opened a black bag up and ask me do I want the freshest bread? I said yes….. Like a child knowing nothing but trusting! I Barely can add this lol! But This scripture gave me hope- he that HUNGERS and THIRST after righteousness SHALL be FILLED ! Matt. 5:-6 Jesus Loves you! He wont leave you trying and thirsty.

        My LORD!!! 5 or 6 years ago I had a night vision I was standing on a huge mountain, with an opening on the side of it kinda like a balcony, and the prophet Elijah was standing to my left. Pants no shirt – then I looked to the right, and a very very Large eagle with a long tale with more colors of the rainbow! It made a noise and flew around the mountain doing the same thing twice, bird call included but the second time when it flew around a large American flag opened up with wind pushing it closer and closer to my face til the flag was all I saw, then I woke up. Told my wife. I think i wrote it down.?

I receive this anointing! I have been having dreams that I will be starting a new job soon..for the past several days. Holy Spirit, guide me to Your Happy New Place for me. Amen.

    Amen amen. I can confirm everything you said since it has been happening to me, the seer anointing, at a level unprecedented from totally nowhere but we know where. He promised us the Spirit would be poured on ALL flesh and this is the time.

    I love the word you said about righteousness because that is the mark of the wise sons of God who understand and Preach Jesus the Messiah, crucified (1cor 1:23) Our Righteousness.

    Amen and let all who read all who desire to know the Lord and be enthralled with the Desire and Treasure of the Nations, the Lord God and the Son of Man who is at the right Hand of the Father, receive immeasurably more than they ask. This is the age of the Royal Priesthood revealed. Many will be blessed. Amen.

    BIlly Graham died now His children are “of age” 2/21. THat we all may “end our course well”, like he did.God is merciful, now we have a president who wants to be known as the praying president. My fervent prayer is that our heart will be renewed and we turn from wicked ways, that will be part of the witness and testimony that will the magnet for the prodigals and unbelievers to return and turn to Christ.
