I had a dream recently and the Lord spoke to me about His fire that is about to come in intensity upon the earth and upon the Church and throughout the dream, I could see the word “PURIFY” all around.
 
“HIS FIRE IS COMING TO PURIFY”
 
I was reminded of Hebrews 12:29:
 
“For our God is a holy, devouring fire” – (The Passion Translation)
 
The Lord showed me in this dream that HE is coming as a holy, devouring fire to purge, to cleanse and to purify. There is going to be a great move of holiness and an increase of freedom in the body of Christ as He comes like fire.
 
In this dream, the Lord showed me that He is specifically about to deal with a spirit of ‘witchcraft’ that has entered into the church. The Lord showed me that this spirit is operating within the body of Christ and prophesying “half-truths” and is “twisting words” and there is a contamination of what the Lord is speaking taking place in the Church because this spirit has found a place, this spirit has found root within Church. I felt the Lord focusing on the fact that this spirit has found “entrance”, it has found a place to “land”. This is not a blanket statement that the entire body of Christ has partnered with a spirit of witchcraft, but that there was an alignment with this spirit that has taken place with some and in some ways, and the Lord wants to bring freedom, cleansing and purification and an invitation for us to examine our hearts and lives in the light of His presence.
 
I felt the righteous anger of the Lord in this dream towards the havoc that this spirit has caused in His Church and that He is coming to make things right. He is coming to bring a purging of this demonic spirit that has found entrance into the body of Christ.
 
This spirit of witchcraft was bringing such destruction, such oppression and such contamination into the Church and especially in the prophetic in the body of Christ. Many were being affected by this spirit, many were being attacked by this spirit and the thing is, many did not even realise it. There was such a manipulation and twisting taking place of what God was saying, that it was leaving many in a place of confusion, oppression, fear and feeling like they were being “shut down”.
 
COMMUNITY IS VITAL
 
One key the Lord showed me in this dream was that this spirit was gaining momentum and traction in those who “had no home.” The Lord showed me there was a connection between the assault of this spirit and it finding a “landing place” where there was “lack of community and covering”. This demonic spirit was looking for the “homeless” places. The places where there was not proper biblical accountability, covering and community and coming to steal, kill, destroy and pollute the move of God in the Church and into the world.
 
The Lord reminded me again, how important community is. How vital it is, especially in this season to be connected, accountable and to be moving not as a lone ranger but part of the family of God. There is power, protection and covering in community and there was a sense of urgency in my dream from the Lord to be intentional in engaging, growing and thriving in community. The place of alignment, surrender, teachability and humility. The fire of God’s love and presence is coming to burn away pride, rebellion (1 Samuel 15:23) and ignite a deeper level of humility, surrender, and revelation of who He is and His Word.
 
THE LORD IS DEALING WITH THIS SPIRIT OF WITCHCRAFT
 
The righteous anger that I felt of the Lord in the dream held a decree of “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” It held a decree of the Lord bringing a radical shift within the Church, a radical cleansing and purifying that was going to lead His people into a greater place of purity. A greater place of repentance. A greater place of increase. A greater place of freedom. A greater place of worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
 
The Lord in His love and His encouragement was going to bring about a greater “alignment” of purity in the body of Christ in accelerated ways. The Lord showed me that where there has been a partnership with a spirit of witchcraft or open doors to witchcraft in any, He is coming with the fire of His love to break that alignment. Where unforgiveness that has turned to offence and bitterness has become a doorway for this spirit to take hold in some, that the Lord is coming to bring an awakening of repentance, forgiveness and release. It is His love and His presence, the Lord coming as an all-consuming fire, bringing a wave of repentance within many within the Church. Any way there has been a partnership with this spirit, manipulation, control, all rooted out of wounding and insecurity, not only is the Lord bringing healing and freedom but He is bringing forth His Bride in greater maturity and holiness.
 
The Bride is about to encounter His fire in a deeper way than ever before which will bring forth such a beautiful increase of His light shining through the Church, a greater purity of the words He is releasing and speaking, a greater clarity of vision, and such a deep and beautiful place of worshipping the Lord in Spirit and in truth.
 
“Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy place? Those who are clean – whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure.” – Psalm 24:3-5 (The Passion Translation)
 
The Lord is preparing His Bride to receive a harvest greater than we have imagined. He is preparing His Church for the greatest harvest we have ever seen, and there is a purging and cleansing that is taking place in preparation to receive the huge increase that is beginning to build.
 
A GREATER AWARENESS AND DISCERNMENT COMING TO THE CHURCH REGARDING THE SPIRIT OF WITCHCRAFT
 
As the Lord comes with fire to cleanse, to purify and to purge there is a greater awareness and discernment that will be released into the body of Christ regarding this spirit of witchcraft.
 
The fire of God is increasing the AWARENESS OF and SENSITIVITY TO PURITY, the PURITY of His Spirit and the flow of His Spirit without contamination, twisting or manipulating.
 
In the fire, the Lord is going to significantly awaken His Church to PURITY and HOLINESS. He is going to awaken His people with greater discernment that will be FOUNDED AND BIRTHED THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD that is going to bring forth that greater sensitivity to deception or contamination.
 
The Lord is maturing His people and bringing them deeper into the place of utter devotion and partnership with Jesus. Our first love, our Lord and Saviour. To steward His Word, what He speaks and His works with integrity, purity, character and maturity.
 
THE SOUND OF HIS TRUTH WILL RESOUND – IT IS ABOUT TO BECOME VERY LOUD!!!
 
The Lord spoke to me that “the sound of truth will resound – it is about to become very loud” and instantly I heard Hebrews 4:12:
 
“For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts.” – (The Passion Translation)
 
The Lord showed me a great awakening to the power of the Word of God taking place and the Lord is drawing His people deeper into the Word of God and KNOWING the Word. Knowing the Word in greater ways to be able to move in His truth and combat the lying and twisting of this spirit of witchcraft and move in deeper discernment.
 
There will be a greater demonstration of TRUTH that is going to take place as His fire falls. The truth of God’s Word is about to become louder. His Word to align, to purify, to direct, to reveal, to convict, correct and deliver. A wave of repentance will gain greater momentum as the truth of God’s Word is seen in greater ways and His kindness revealed.
 
MANY WHO HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER DECEPTION WILL BE BROUGHT INTO TRUTH
 
The Lord also showed me that as His fire falls, many who have been living under deception will be brought into truth. There will be a great shaking and awakening that will take place in their lives as they are awakened to the reality of what has been taking place and the way this witchcraft spirit has come against them or ways they have partnered with it. The Spirit of God will bring forth powerful shakings and revelation of the truth of His Word that will bring forth great repentance as scales fall off many eyes.
 
DON’T JUST SIT BACK AND WAIT – PRAY
 
I felt the Lord say “Don’t just sit back and wait – PRAY!!!”. I felt there is an invitation from the heart of God to partner with His heart and the fire He is going to release upon the Church. I felt the invitation of the Lord to come into agreement with His fire, His purifying, His purging, His cleansing and the work of His hands to bring about a whole new revival of holiness within the Church.
 
To pray for those who have been partnering with this spirit of witchcraft or have been affected by it. To not stand in judgement, offence or criticism but to encourage, to love, to bless and to PRAY for them. For the Lord will send forth His Word, in His way, and bring forth a great repentance of rebellion, partnering with this spirit and bring great freedom, cleansing, deliverance and restoration.
 
I feel the Lord wants His people to “CALL IN HIS FIRE!!!!”, to intercede, to agree and decree with the fire of God and welcome His fire. For it is not something to be feared, but something to be embraced, because He is preparing His Church to receive the harvest unlike we have ever seen. To know His heart, move in the power of His Spirit with integrity and purity, deeply grounded in the truth of His Word and be prepared to carry the increase.
 
It is His heart of love, the fire of His love, that is bringing forth a cleansing, purging and purifying. Raising up an army that has one agenda and alignment – JESUS CHRIST. Radical abandonment to Jesus and flowing, moving and stewarding with purity.
 
The fire of God is dealing with this spirit of witchcraft that has done so much damage to His Church. He is jealous over His beautiful bride and He is going to bring her forth, spotless.
 
We just need to agree and align with what He is doing.
 
Let us together, intercede and pray for His fire to come, to welcome the PURIFYING He wants and is going to bring. What a glorious beautiful army of laid down lovers for Jesus, walking in greater revelation of our holiness in Him and walking it out in greater manifestation, is going to arise from His fire.
 
“For He died for us, sacrificing Himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God. All that He does in us is designed to make us a mature church for His pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him – glorious and radiant, beautiful and holy, without fault or flaw.” Ephesians 5:25-27 (The Passion Translation)

  1. Hi Everyone, this is Matt here. I am a bible believing christian. Yesterday morning I had a quick dream that I believe God had given me. I saw myself talking to someone but I couldn’t make out who. Anyways I can’t remember what exactly happened as such but the person said, “Put out your hand!”. I did. I didn’t dare question this person. I opened my hand inwards towards this person, than all of a sudden, my hand was on fire but not like on fire,fire. My hand was in its usual position but the flame was on top of my hand, so whenever my hand moved, so the flame went with my hand also. It sort of reminds me of the story of Moses in Exodus in the bible where he saw the burning bush in the wilderness but the bush wasn’t burning. After this dream, I had woke up.

  2. During the last few weeks or the last month, I in times with the Lord I would declare repeatedly “The Lord is a consuming fire!” At the time, I did not really know what it was about so I just flowed with it. North Caroline, USA

  3. Thank you, O Lord, for your fire and purifying. I believe and receive Your Word deep into my spirit. Please give me wisdom in the harvest. Blessing to you and your family, In Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen.

  4. Lana, This word is so spot on! God showed me about the witchcraft spirit many years ago. Have been one whom has been affected by it but also have been one to rise up and do spiritual warfare against this thing. It is not only in the church. It is prevalent in the workplace, governments,etc. When you have to do with it within the workplace it can be especially difficult. This spirit of witchcraft has been one of Satan’s main tools to try and take out or stop the people of God. God has had me praying for a while now about a REVIVAL of REPENTANCE and most recently praying about His holy fire. God is going to do what He is going to do. Even if there was a failure of prayer, God is set to bring about His plan in a beautiful and MIGHTY way! The gates of hell shall NOT PREVAIL against the Body and Bride of Christ! God is jealous and FULL of fiery, passionate love for what is HIS!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  5. Lana, I am not sure what this witchcraft looks like. It would be helpful to know more specifically what you are seeing that people are doing and saying.

    • Pam…the witchcraft spirit is very cunning. You have to put the thought of what you perceive as witchcraft…such as casting spells,etc, out of your mind. The main thing this spirit of witchcraft operates in,of which Lana is speaking and of which I am very familiar, is manipulation. The Bible says in Samuel that “ rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft “ That is pretty serious. Just think about what witchcraft is in the sense that you and most people understand. It would be someone casting a spell or working whatever a formula to bring about something they basically are trying to force happen outside of their own power. This IS manipulation. One of the ways this ‘ spirit of witchcraft ‘ is working in the world today , not only in the church but world wide in the workplace, governments, media etc, is through INTIMIDATION, LIES, COERCION, FEAR, WORDS…..all of these things wrapped up in people’s words. The open door that lets this in…very simply…is an impure heart, I.e., intents of the heart towards someone or a situation being based on selfishness. Selfishness is a sin and thus an open door. What does someone whom is selfish do to get what they want….they will coerce through intimidation, falsehoods, straight out lying if need be to CHANGE A MATTER agent what they want. This is all manipulation. The person seemingly in control whom is doing this, is casting their spell…so to speak…to get their desired end. Witchcraft.

    • Hi Ms Pam. Thought this may help. There is a book written by Derek Prince called, “They Shall Expel Demons” – it is Powerful and Informative. Chapter 15, “Is Witchcraft Still at Work Today?”, is dedicated to explaining this. You may want to consider purchasing it. He has many other great books as well. Much Love <3

    • Manipulation and control In the church is witchcraft. It can be done several ways for example condemning people who leave the church , trying to control peoples personal lives, selling prophecies and prayers etc Petty things. Twisting scripture is deception which is witchcraft. Hope this helps. God bless.

    • Witchcraft is the spirit of control. Working to control the lives of others. Taking God’s place … REBELLION. IT IS A SIN OF THE FLESH GALATIONS 5:20….

  6. I had just finished reading chapter 12 in Hebrews and had closed the Bible…..I then open my emails, and begin to read your prophetic dream, which begins with the same verse I had just finished reading moments earlier. Come, oh Holy Fire! Purify us for Your use….help us to carry the increase of Your Kingdom! Amen….. Thank you, Lana.

  7. The Lord reminded me again, how important community is. How vital it is, especially in this season to be connected, accountable and to be moving not as a lone ranger but part of the family of God. There is power, protection and covering in community and there was a sense of urgency in my dream from the Lord to be intentional in engaging, growing and thriving in community. The place of alignment, surrender, teachability and humility

    This is Such a Confirmation to me because lately the devil has bombarded me with So many People saying to me that they wont go back to church, because of several reasons excuses, complaints, and I kept on saying to the Lord I wont listen to these lies I will Stay Connected, Grow, Serve etc. I have been in my Church for 26 Years faithfully and Yes even though I am not where I want to be as yet I Will Stay Faithful unto the LORD!!!!
    Thank you Yeshua,

  8. No one is unaffected by this, no church, no ministry. When one member of the body suffers the whole body suffers with it, but there are a lot of people suffering while making every effort prayerfully in the Spirit to be connected to the body, and yet hardly any stronger people suffering with them. Jesus never harshly rebuked the weak, but he said of the strong who put “stumbling blocks” (skandalon, sadly translated as “offence” in the KJV) in the way of the weak then these people should “have a millstone tied around his neck and thrown into the sea”. Jesus said it. Those who are stronger are less affected, but doing nothing for those more affected is just as bad as working against them. It’s not just the people “practising” witchcraft. I am thankful as I have been praying for some time for the prophetic movement to recognise this. So many are affected even without it being their fault.

  9. Come like an All-Consuming Fire, God! Open the eyes of our spiritual understanding. May we see You through purity of heart! Amen and amen.

  10. LORD , thank you! Thank you for your loving kindness, Isaiah said – its me oh Lord! Savior! clean up our homeless ness ! Take us by the hand, helping us to purity the seen and unseen from wondering and pondering to knowing and showing!!!

  11. This would be a huge miracle. My husband and I were on staff at a church for almost 9 years.. the head pastor and his wife wiped out our entire staff all the way to the janitor.. all that to say.. we were so disposed of and my kids, especially my daughter left so hurt as the pastors family brought in new staff as we were leaving and made them their best staff.. they called us the “staff infection”. All that to say: all the lies, manipulation that occurred felt like they got away with such evil and nothing was done…I know know they operate out of a orphan spirit, but when it comes from the church… it’s sooooo soooo painful
