For many months now, the Lord has been speaking to me about the increase of faith that was coming and has now arrived upon the body of Christ.
The Lord showed me the pressures, the battles, the fires many have faced and are facing, but in the midst of the pressure, the pressing and the opposition, the Spirit of God is raising up the body of Christ to a new level of FAITH.
In the middle of the night recently the Lord spoke to me:
“Lana, I am now raising My people up to a new level of normal”
The Lord showed me how circumstances, opposition and fiery trials have “pushed many into a corner”. Many pressed hard up against the things that they are walking through and things coming against them.
In this vision I saw so many of God’s people being pushed into that corner, battle weary and feeling the intensity of the pressure, when suddenly Jesus appeared in front of them.
He placed His hand on their chest and in the middle of the pressing and pressure, with such a weariness and panic on many faces, He spoke so gently but full of authority:
“Look at Me! Look at Me!”
It was the invitation to look at NOTHING ELSE but Him.
He spoke again:
“It is time for the FEROCIOUS FOCUS OF FAITH!!!”
Ferocious definition: savagely fierce, violent.
Synonyms: intense, strong, powerful, extreme,
In the natural the word “FEROCIOUS” has “negative” connotations, but when the Lord spoke it, my spirit leapt.
It was the invitation to aggressively, violently, passionately come against every situation, every opposition, every giant with such a violent conviction of faith that says “MY GOD SAID IT, HE PROMISED IT, HIS WORD IS TRUE, I AM NOT MOVING FROM IT!!!”
“From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the realm of heaven’s kingdom is bursting forth, and passionate people have taken hold of its power.”(Matthew 11:12 – The Passion Translation)
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize].” – Matthew 11:12 (AMP Version)
The vision continued, as the hand of Jesus was placed upon the chest of His people, I knew there was an major increase and impartation of faith taking place.
Eye to eye in intense focus, gazes locked together, He spoke:
“IT IS NOW TIME TO ROAR!!!”
Suddenly I saw this fire burn within God’s people. A fire of conviction of the TRUTH and POWER of His Word and a righteous anger at what the enemy has stolen. The roar that burst forth out of the mouths of God’s people was the Word of God and it came with such boldness and SUCH faith.
“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” – (Isaiah 55:11 – ESV)
“Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” – (Jeremiah 23:29 – ESV)
Jesus says to me:
“Lana, pay attention to the roar. Listen to the roar. Listen to the sound of DOUBT being removed!!”
I leaned in and as I listened to the roar of the conviction of the truth and power of the Word flowing from the mouths of God’s people, I could hear the sound of REPENTANCE loudly bursting from their hearts. Repentance for aligning with doubt and allowing “natural realities” and “disappointments” to fester doubt in their hearts. Now He was increasing faith so significantly and the revelation of His Word, that DOUBT was being removed and a people arising strong and fortified.
NOW IS THE TIME FOR A NEW LEVEL OF NORMAL
As this roar was coming forth from God’s people, the roar of FAITH, the Lord decreed:
“Now is the time to arise to a new level of normal”
I watched as God’s people’s faith increased as the fire of INTOLERANCE increased. The places where there has been tolerance for things in the natural that do not align with what God says and His purposes, plans and Kingdom, were suddenly losing their hold as a people were arising saying “NO MORE! I do not have to accept that for my life, my families life, my city, nation and the world.”
There was an even greater awakening taking place in the Church to the “standard and the normal” that is the Word of God alone and what He speaks.
Sudden answered prayers, miracles, signs and wonders, major demonstrations of His power in the earth are going to explode in intensity and acceleration in this new era as God’s people are raised to a “new level of normal”.
I heard Him speak again:
“Now is the time for greater access to what I have written in My books in the library of heaven over individuals, cities and nations as the faith of My people is increased. While the chains of doubt remain, insight and clarity of what I am speaking was hindered. But now in this increase and arising to a “new normal”, I am raising up My army branded with the fire of conviction of Matthew 19:26 “With God, all things are possible”
Looking straight into their eyes, Jesus replied, “Humanly speaking, no one, because no one can save himself. But what seems impossible to you is never impossible to God!” (Matthew 19:26 – TPT)
This new era is being branded with Matthew 19:26. The impossible looking completely possible in Jesus. Awakened in such ferocious focus of faith, that the fire of intolerance is arising. No longer tolerating anything that is not in agreement or inline with what the Father is speaking and decreeing.
DEEPER LEVELS OF INTERCESSION AND DEMONSTRATIONS OF MY POWER THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF THE SAINTS
In this vision, Jesus says to me:
“Lana, in this increase and awakening to a “new level of normal”, there is now a deeper level of intercession being entered into by My people who are leaning in. There are realms of deep intercession that I am taking My people into that they have never been in before, where they shall see and hear My heart clearer than before and shall see the major demonstrations of My power through intercession and prayer.”
“In this new era there will be a corporate shaking and awakening to the power of prayer and intercession.”
“I am increasing the weaponry of revelation in intercession. It’s time to go deeper in intercession than has ever been entered into before. There shall be greater travail than has been known before. There shall be a people crying out to me with conviction and fire saying “God we are holding You to Your name.” and that level of faith and conviction deeper than ever will usher in some of the greatest moves of My Spirit and revival upon the earth that has ever been seen.”
As the vision ended He spoke again:
“Lana, this is not a simple encouragement for My people that I am increasing a new level of normal and faith. This is a worldwide, corporate, historic shift of faith taking place NOW and will radically increase, that WILL literally see the world changed by the power of My Word and Spirit.”
“Tell My people to continue to feast DEEP in the Word and to invite Me to come and awaken them to this new normal in their lives. Encourage them to agree with Me in what I am doing and to birth forth this new level of normal and major increase of faith.”
People of God, it is so important to be focused right now. It’s time for “ferocious focus of faith” and watch God move mountains and worldwide demonstrations of His power.
