Katie Dunstan originally shared on the Elijah List
For a while now, I have been sensing a barrage of attack against Christians leaders – leaders of churches, networks, movements; leaders of nations; and particularly five-fold ministers.
I want to encourage you to GET EXCITED! The enemy has overplayed his hand. I feel as if the Lord has captured and purified the oil from the crushing you have come through. The time has come for Him to anoint your head with oil as you sit at the table He has prepared for you in the presence of your enemies. Now your cup overflows (see Psalm 23:5).
In the spirit, I see a super-sized jug being poured, and out of the jug flows oil. I am hearing and seeing a “DOUBLE PORTION OUTPOURING.” For each attack sent against you, there is a “double portion outpouring” of ANOINTING, AUTHORITY and POWER coming to you, your ministry, your church, your network, your movement.
What was meant for evil, the Lord has turned around for the good of the Kingdom of God in the land of the living. “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13 NIV).
God’s Select Arrow
To many of you who have been under attack, it might feel like a setback and a blockage to your assignment, but the Lord would say, “I AM STEPPING IN TO SET YOU UP AND SEND YOU FORTH AS MY SELECT ARROW.”
Where the enemy has attempted to shut your mouth and shut you down, let me encourage you: The Lord has made your mouth like a sharp sword, and in the shadow of His hand He has concealed you; He has made you a select arrow; He has hidden you in His quiver (see Isaiah 49:2). (Photo via Pxfuel)
Where your name has been slandered and tainted, we decree Isaiah 54:17 over your name, your church, your ministry, your network and your movement. We decree: “‘No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,’ declares the LORD.”
Where the enemy has come against your name to cause chaos and calamity, and to kill, steal and destroy, the Lord says, “I have come in RESURRECTION POWER and established you in LIFE, and LIFE ABUNDANTLY (see John 10:10).”
The name of Jesus is above every other name (see Philippians 2:9). Jehovah-Shalom (“The Lord is Peace”) is one of the names that Jesus is known by. I speak the shalom peace of God over you like warm healing balm – nothing broken, nothing missing…shalom peace in your heart, in your mind, in your body, in your soul and in your spirit. Be healed, be restored and be strengthened, in Jesus’ name.
Lean Into the God of Ephesians 3:20
I hear the Lord say, “Let Me remind you that I am the God of EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY MORE than you could ever ask, think, hope or dream (see Ephesians 3:20).”
I feel Him encouraging you: “Lean into Me; I AM your Beloved. Fasten Me upon your heart as a seal forevermore (see Song of Songs 8:6). Lean in and receive the more of who I AM in you.
“I am extracting you out of the enemy’s grip of confinement and restriction and catapulting you into greater dimensions of Myself that you have longed for, dimensions you could not imagine. For ‘…No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him’ (1 Corinthians 2:9).”
Walls of Jericho Fall: I Am More Than a Conqueror!
Some of you have felt like you’ve been banging your heads against a brick wall and stopped in your tracks, but God Almighty is causing the walls of your Jericho to FALL and DISINTEGRATE before your eyes.
Lord, You conquered the grave so that we could rise up as MORE THAN CONQUERORS (see Romans 8:37).
Come into agreement with His word and decree: “I am more than a conqueror; I am an overcomer. What was meant for evil, Lord, You have turned it for good. It is His power that obliterates the blockages in an instant.”
“Rest in Awe of Me”
In the spirit, I see that a whole new PROMISED LAND is opening up to you…a wonderful, wide-open space. We decree, no more false starts; no more brick walls; no more knockbacks. (Photo via Unsplash)
Spiritual blockages that have kept you confined and contained have caused a “rocket” effect. I see many of you like a rocket, preparing for takeoff – with much white noise and resistance. God is ready to launch you into a place above the white noise, resistance and push back.
You are being launched into a place of ease, a place of great clarity and rest in Him. In Him, there is rest and restoration. The word “restoration” was highlighted to me and it became “REST-AWE-RATION.” The “AWE” was illuminated. Then I heard Him say, “This is what I will do as you REST IN AWE of Me.”
The Exchange: Consecration for Transformation
Because you have frequented the secret place, because you have consecrated your heart and self, I sense that Father is activating an exchange. For your CONSECRATION, He is granting you GREAT TRANSFORMATION to equip you to operate in your new upgrade.
In the spirit, I saw fruit bursting out of its skin, and brand new fruit emerging. The fruit bursting out of its skin represents you breaking forth into new dimensions of anointing, authority and power…new wineskin full of new wine, now equipped, anointed and full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.
Rejoice! Stand up and celebrate! Worship the Lord! Your victory is sweet!
“Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.” (Isaiah 61:7 AMPC)
