I HEARD HIM SAY “CAN YOU SMELL THE SMELL OF FRESH BREAD?”
By Lana Vawser
Recently as I sat with the Lord, I heard the Lord ask a question. “Can you smell the smell of fresh bread?” Instantly I had a vision of a HUGE room with HUGE baking ovens and I saw Jesus and the angelic hosts pulling out fresh, huge, hot bread out of the ovens.
The smell was SO fresh, the smell SO inviting, the smell SO full of life. The word “FRESH” just reverberated through my spirit. There was SUCH invitation in the atmosphere and invitation to come into the place of FRESH BREAD.
Matthew 4:4 burned in my spirit “Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that flows from the mouth of God.”
“Bread alone will not satisfy, but true life is found in every word which constantly goes forth from God’s mouth.” – Matthew 4:4 (The Passion Translation)
This is such an incredible season right now to receive the revelation of His heart, deeper revelation of His Word and hear the voice of God. The Lord is bringing His people into a deeper dependence and hunger to live completely, focused, wholeheartedly upon what He says, the revelation He releases and not what any other voice or circumstance speaks. The Lord is bringing the people of God to such a higher place of insight, revelation, wisdom and clarity. To live in a deeper place of the revelation of the Word and revelation of His Word. The Lord is working deeply within His people to SHIFT and CONCRETE reality. There is a deep fire the Lord is igniting and increasing, that His people do not live by what is seen or told in the natural world but by every Word that flows from His mouth. A fire within their hearts and fire in their bellies, a deep resolve, conviction and fortification to live in the TRUE REALITY and the reality is living in the WORD, PERSPECTIVE and TRUTH of Scripture and what He speaks over every circumstance and situation.
The vision continued, and I saw many in the body of Christ feasting on yesterday’s bread. The way it was, what God HAD said. I saw the eyes of Jesus roaming the earth, looking for those who would PURSUE the FRESH BREAD. Those who would intentionally position themselves to receive the FRESH BREAD of revelation He is releasing.
I felt so strongly that God is changing the subject. There was such an incredible, beautiful sense that surrounded me that God was changing subjects, but I saw different situations and circumstances causing people to run back to yesterday’s bread. A lack of understanding, a lack of circumstances matching up with what God HAD said, disappointment, disillusionment, fear, doubt, weariness. I saw many “hung up” on what DIDN’T turn out or happen the way they thought or the way they thought God had said it would, and it was keeping many away from the place of receiving the fresh bread that He was wanting to release to them now.
I saw many feasting upon this bread that was dry, mouldy, crumbly and they were attempting to still feast upon this bread, and I heard the Holy Spirit say “The revelation that they are feasting upon is for another season. Because of fear, disappointment and unanswered questions, they are attempting to bring the old, dry, mouldy bread into today, but it is no longer for today, I have NEW BREAD for today. I am calling My people to live in a place of FRESHNESS. I am calling My people to leave behind the unanswered questions, and praise Me, and know that I am good, and IN THE RELEASE and RECEIVING of the FRESH BREAD, healing, peace and a settledness will come. Fear is keeping many bound on yesterday’s bread, but I have FRESH BREAD of revelation and what I am speaking, that is going to release greater life and increase in the life of My people.”
STEWARDING THE BREAD
I felt the Lord is not only inviting us into a deeper place of fresh revelation of what He is speaking and His Word (hence the enemy is attempting to keep many from that place) but the Lord is teaching His people in greater ways the stewardship of the bread. How to stay in a place of hearing, seeing and discerning the fresh Word spoken from the Lord and not feast upon yesterday’s bread. To DAILY be positioned to hear and see, to feast and live upon every Word, He speaks!
When I heard the Lord say “Can you smell the smell of fresh bread?” – it was a question of discernment. “Can you smell the increase of revelation of who I am, My Word and revelation I am releasing?” and the sense surrounded me strongly that you SMELL draws and awakens hunger.
As we dive deeper into His presence and SMELL the invitation He is releasing and SMELL the fresh revelation He is wanting to release it is going to INCREASE HUNGER. Hunger to live in the PURITY of living upon HIS WORD alone. Feasting not upon anything else but what He says.
There is a radical increase of HUNGER to hear from the Lord, His Word and what He is SPEAKING, to hear the voice of God that is being released in the body of Christ as we SMELL the invitation to receive the FRESH BREAD of REVELATION He is releasing.
Accepting the invitation of His heart will see you feast on LOAVES OF THE FRESH BREAD OF REVELATION of who Jesus is, His Word and what He is saying, BIGGER than you have feasted on before. These loaves were HUGE.
The key way to position yourself to hear is opening the Word of God. Approaching the Word of God with expectation that you are about to feast knowing that the Lord has FRESH REVELATION from the Word that is going to be released to given to you.
I talked this prophetic word over with a friend, and he saw the STEAM OF THE SPIRIT upon the Scriptures. The freshness of the revelation of the Word, waiting for you to receive and eat. Oh the joy, the filling, the hunger that shall increase within you. Many of you will be left in awe and wonder of the JOY in the revelation of the Word that He is going to release to you. SO FRESH, the more you eat, the more you feast, the more ravenously hungry you shall become and the revelation that the Word of God is ALIVE and POWERFUL (Hebrews 4:12) will BURN in you and through you and in the FEASTING upon the FRESH BREAD He has for you, I see MANY shackles of the heart, mind and soul suddenly FALLING OFF as the lies, strongholds and things that have kept you in captivity come face to face with the Word of God and cannot STAND and have ROOT any longer.
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12 (ESV)
The hungry SHALL be fed! Let us be people who live DAILY in the reality of Matthew 4:4 and feast on the FRESH bread of heaven.
“I am the Bread of Life. Come every day to Me and you will never be hungry. Believe in me and you will never be thirsty.” – John 6:35 (The Passion Translation)

How’s this for a confirmation of prophecy: We usually get fresh bread from the shop and freeze it. We ran out yesterday so at the last minute I decided to make a loaf in the breadmaker last night to eat this morning. When your email arrived, I read the title of this post and thought, “Wow!! I’ll have fresh bread waiting for me!!” For some reason, the breadmaker didn’t work properly last night and the ingredients were still sitting there this morning. I was a bit disappointed, but I started the machine again and read the whole post. My jaw dropped. If my bread machine had run last night, I would have had yesterday’s bread, not bread fresh today!
Blessings on your ministry, Lana!!!
This word is confirmation for me. Last night I was meditating on John 6 about Jesus saying He was the bread from heaven that gives life. Your prophetic word made me think of the Lord’s Prayer when He says, “Give us this day our daily bread.” I always thought he was talking about food. It never occurred to me that He May have meant spiritual bread. I am hungry for “fresh bread” every day.
Lana – your not going to believe this but I have actually for the first time in my life been making fresh bread since Friday. I have always been intimidated by it and my biological father has taken up this hobby of making bread and I got his recipe and just said I will not be afraid and went for it. Your word prophetically has SO many meanings for me!!!! I’m also doing a bible study right now on the spirit of JOY. Thank you. Thank you.
I saw you last year when you were in Denver CO. Can’t wait for your new book to come out. Blessings
Am DESPERATELY in need of a word for now. Am VERY discouraged and depressed.
Press on dear one! God loves YOU! Press in & hear Him speak louder then anyone else “I LOVE YOU!”

I have been smelling fresh bread in the spirit and in the natural. We have a bakery nearby. Then recently the spiritual smell made my mouth water when the bakery was not baking. And I was forwarded a Bob Jones writing about seers and he used the analogy of Hot Bread as he explained the gift. And here is further confirmation. I am so excited to see and be with HE who is Our One Loaf as FULLNESS and OUR completion. And in whom alone is my hope for peace on all sides. For He will draw every crumb to Him, making us all FRESH. And as hot bread one to another and unto Him. Love inside and outside. At long last we will be recognizable as Him in His to each other, (Peace, Peace) and others. (Peace.) Ps 120:7 Thanks Lana Vawser, bull’s eye.
Thank you Lana for being a vessel! What also comes to mind is Exodus 16 where the children of Israel were given daily fresh manna, and they were commanded by God to not hold on to it for the next day. The manna was only good for that day. The exception was the sixth day where they received enough food for two days in order to observe the Sabbath.
Lana, your prophetic words always speak to me from the Lord! I get excited when I see your email of His revelations. Thank you for your ministry. It is a lifeline to me. Blessings to you!
This revelation of our Father Yah is becoming stronger and stronger. The past two days were filled with encounters of His Spirit such that I was not even able to move for what seemed like hours but in reality were but several minutes but they left me undone in His Presence, knowing Him in such a greater way of revelation than I’ve seen before. Those two encounters started with Him reminding me of situations which I had blocked from my mind because of the fear and pain I had encountered, never realizing how it had blocked my growth. When He took me back to those times,the fear and pain was no longer able to control me in that. He showed me how through those times He had always been there with me even though I had not recognized Him. Then He reminded me of a story I heard once which I believe is true that an American Indian takes his son who is at that age of turning from a boy to a man and takes him far into the woods and places him on a stump in the middle of a clearing whereupon he is blindfolded and must sit there all night, unarmed and blind. All night long as he sits there in darkness and alone, hearing the wolves growling and the mountain lions screaming, he must prove himself a man by being unafraid and knowing that any minute he could be attacked and killed. Only when the sun rises in the morning does he take off the blindfold and only then does he realize that his father had stayed there all night guarding him and protecting him through out the long night of darkness. That is our Father and His grace and His provisions for us all. He Never Leaves us Nor Forsakes us no matter the growls, screams, and murderous lies we may hear throughout the darkness of the night of this world we are living in…just remember this, we are “in” this world but we are not “of” this world.
Hallelujah! Glory to Elohim who knows all. I know this to be true, let it be just as you have said Lord. I receive this Word and possess that which I truly hunger for. In all things big and small I shall see the goodness of the Lord. Many blessings to you Lana, thank you.
