Releasing of Good Things

Lately I have been wondering, what should I write about next? I get so many glimpses of topics, insights & ideas, but I hesitate to just dive in & start scrambling out an article. I want to be focused.

…and so I have just settled on a word that I believe I heard from the Lord right after President Trump’s inauguration. That word has been confirmed to me, it seems, coming in from an unexpected direction. I am going out on a limb here…but I wouldn’t, if I didn’t think I was on the right track.

~~~

TREMENDOUS opposition rose up against Donald Trump, before & after his election, to prevent him from first, even being elected and then secondly, actually being sworn into office. But he was…and he was. Opposition continues its resistance to his position, his actions & his policies. Some of that opposition is just part of our American process, but not all of it. (My personal guess is, not most of it.)

Information abounds – some supposedly fake, some ‘leaked’ – on the world wide web, and it’s hard to know what’s what. How many levels deep, and at the very bottom (or perhaps I should say top), who is pulling each string, in releasing ‘information’, breaking ‘news’? But this stuff is out there, and unless one buries their head in the sand, it’s hard not to hear/see at least something. And the ‘somethings’ I’ve seen have caused me to believe that insidious actions are still being attempted by the overthrown parties, to subvert the Trump administration & its outcomes. Actions ‘outside the camp’ so to speak.

NONETHELESS the Trump campaign was victorious. Immediate Presidential decisions & actions were and will be released. Granted, resistance was triggered…but my point is, there was a victory and there was a release.

~~~

I believe that release from battles & circumstances will also be seen & felt Body-wide, throughout the Body of Christ and perhaps even in the lives of some not in/not yet in the household of faith. The powerful battles waged to prevent the Donald Trump victory, were not only waged on a national/Presidential level. God was/is very much involved in the Trump conflict, and I think that conflict is a representation of a universal/celestial one. Whether we believe in God or not, we are in it. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (William Shakespeare / Hamlet Act 1. Scene V) And so I think that on many levels and in many areas of life, there will be breakthroughs & releases into more freedom & more fulness of well-being. Maybe, at first, just in small things. Look for them…

In ushering in the Trump Presidency, God in Christ broke a mighty stronghold. It goes far beyond what we can see.

Post-Inauguration…Rising out of the Ashes

In this post-inauguration upheaval, with at times worse turmoil than during the campaign itself, I find I am depleted. I can barely look at my emails, or online news, ‘journalism’, & updates. I cannot see anymore ‘breaking news’ pieces about yet another crisis, riot, protest, or President Trump-hater. I cannot bear it.

But…it is still there.

~~~

Up until right about now, I was in the fray, ‘campaigning’ for our President on Twitter, Facebook & Google +1. Getting involved in conversations, leaving comments, posting memes, photos & articles…but I am done, it seems, now. The die has been cast. God is at the helm along with President Trump, so I feel that I can step back & leave things in those capable hands/Hands. Which is a reprieve I welcome, because I have very little starch left in me. Other than continuing in prayer for this new President & his administration, I am laying down the rest of it.

~~~

…so what next, though?

Recently a preacher I trust made the statement that Jesus is so easily ‘set aside’ in favor of the latest trend in the Body of Christ/the church or…you guessed it, current events. That pricked a little when I heard it. But too many times I have been aware of just how much of my time gets sucked up by online activity involving just that, i.e., ‘keeping up’ with the political news of the day. For me, it has often been like gorging on sickening food. And, one gets addicted! Am I right? I don’t think it’s a habit that one can easily lay down…and maybe some of us don’t have to, even maybe shouldn’t, depending on one’s calling…but I am being called elsewhere now.

At the end of it all, we will find Jesus. All the rest of this life is really about Him, and the opposition to Him. EVERYTHING victorious, that we have seen & are seeing in the Donald Trump Presidency is by His hand, and going forward, it will be the same.

Jesus is at work here. A very recent prophetic word, given to my go-to prophetess Lana Vawser, reveals that an ‘Elijah & the prophets of Baal showdown’ is going on right now over the United States. “All of hell is frantic over what I am doing in the United States because the breakthrough taking place in the nation is releasing the DOMINO EFFECT BREAKTHROUGH into other nations all across the world. My plan and picture is so much bigger than every one can see. The redemption, healing, freedom, increase and breakthrough that I am orchestrating and bringing into the United States is going to flow like a river and into all over nations in the earth.”  (https://lanavawser.com/2017/02/i-had-a-vision-and-i-saw-ephesians-320-on-fire-across-the-united-states-of-america/) This is not the first time she has received such a word from the Lord, regarding mighty spiritual battles being fought over Donald Trump and the United States. And more trouble will come. But our powerful God, with the prayers of the saints, will overcome.

My point is that knowing Jesus is the only answer.

Some I know, not aligned with Him, are looking at externals. I can’t reach them. I cannot talk them out of protests, or their anger.  But I can get to know Him better. Abiding in the revelation of the only begotten Son brings it all home!  His throne endures forever. Learning of Him will equip you like nothing else. Get on the inside track!
