“In A Sense, I Am Lonely.  I Have Very Few Friends In Every Generation.”




A few years ago, I had an encounter with the Lord in which He said to me, "In a sense, I am lonely. I have very few friends in every generation."


I was shaken when I heard that.


"How?!" I asked. "All these people that are made in Your image? How can YOU be lonely?"


"Yes," He replied. "I can be, because I have given man free will. This means that every person gets to relate with Me at the level they choose.


Of those that believe that I exist, majority are at the very basic level where they only come to Me for what I can give to them. Their prayers are filled with "Give me this," and "Give me that."


Which is okay, because they are My children and I delight in doing good things and giving good gifts to My children. But because that's all they seek after, that's what they are limited to."


The second group has gone a step further. They are not just content to have their needs met, and they do not see Me merely as an errand boy who makes things happen around them.


These are zealous to serve Me. They hunger for My power, gifts and supernatural abilities. But they stop their pursuit at the level of servants.


Many of these become content when I begin to use them. They no longer press into My secret chambers. Their focus becomes ministry. But I long for so much more!


However, a few people in every generation refuse to settle. When they were children, they sought me for their own needs.


When they tasted My goodness, they pressed in for more. They went into a place where I began to use them to help other people.


When they tasted My goodness at that level, they refused to settle. They chose to continue climbing the mountain from peak to peak.


Now all they want is intimate friendship with Me. Yes, they still need Me to meet their needs, and yes, they still desire to serve Me.


But their hearts have refused to settle there. They want ME as a Person. They hunger for RELATIONSHIP with Me. They desire intimate friendship with Me.


Nothing else can satisfy these ones.


Nothing else excites these ones.


I am the Pearl, the Jewel they are seeking.


The more they find Me, the more they seek Me.


These are My friends.


They don't seek Me merely for what I can do for them or give them. They want Me as a Person.


Of course, they end up getting everything else available in the lower peaks. But their greatest reward is that they get to know Me in a way that others do not.


They know My HEART. They know My character, intentions, plans, purposes, agenda, likes, dislikes, preference, not from hearing it from others but from personal revelation of Me.



They know how to approach, relate and respond to Me, not merely from being taught by others, but because they have personal acquaintance with Me.



These are the ones I hang out with when I just want to talk. Or when I just want to spend time with someone without necessarily saying anything.



Their hearts and homes are like the home of Lazarus, Mary and Martha in Bethany, where I loved to recline, not necessarily for ministry but just to be with them as My friends.



It is time to shift dimensions. Seek ME. Seek My friendship and My presence. Everything else will be added to you as needed. Let Me now be your ONLY THING. I long for your friendship."

[Exhortations From The Father]




*       The spirit of man is as a "field". Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for one to NOT allow any seed of doubt, fear or unbelief to be planted there [through words spoken by themselves {or heard from an outside source} that are "contrary" and therefore, in disalignment with a revelation of My Word/Will]. Rather, let each and every one of My precious children be found continually sowing the seeds of righteousness, love and faith that will establish their heart [spirit] in absolute Truth - the exercising of which will SURELY turn back the Enemy in this hour, and bring the blessings of Heaven [the Kingdom] down [as a flood] on every front.


"field" - an expanse of open or cleared ground, especially a piece of land suitable or used for pasture or tillage;


        ...."He presented another parable to them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; and this is smaller than all [other] seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that THE BIRDS OF THE AIR come and NEST IN ITS BRANCHES".... Matthew 13:31-32 NASB


        ...."Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, [by] perfecting holiness in the fear [reverence] of God [thus allowing Him to to expel {displace} every last ground of fear {unrighteousness}]".... 2 Corinthians 7:1 NASB


        ...."Watch over your heart [spirit] with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life [the forces of the Kingdom {Grace, Faith, Love, Truth, Righteousness and Wisdom}];




        ...."Put away from you a deceitful mouth and put devious speech far from you".... Proverbs 4:23-24 NASB




        ...."lie not against the truth".... James 3:14b KJV


"lie" - the uttering of an untruth;


"untruth - the state or character of being untrue. want of veracity; divergence from truth; .a statement, fact, etc, that is not true [in this case, any word or action that aligns itself {in fear and/or pride} with the lower reality of sense-knowledge and perception - and, thus, denies the higher Reality of God's Word];

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

Sickness Is Spiritual


*____Now you can see this fact; that sickness was healed spiritually. God did not deal with sickness physically.


____Disease today is spiritual. I have found that when I can prove, through the Word, that our diseases were laid on Jesus, and the sick man accepts that fact, he is instantly healed.


____As long as we think that disease is purely physical, we will not get our deliverance.


____But when we know it is spiritual, and it must be healed by the Word of God, for you remember He said, "He sent His Word and healed them," then healing becomes a reality.


____""He was wounded for our transgressions." This was spiritual. "He was bruised for our iniquities." It was a spiritual bruising.


____The wounds that the soldiers made did not take away sin, for if they had, sin would be a physical thing, a Sense Knowledge thing.


____Human justice deals only with Sense evidences - not what a man thinks, but what he says or does.


____He endured sufferings that the Senses cannot understand.


____They stand mute and helpless in the presence of this great spiritual tragedy that took place on Calvary.


____""The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."


____It was not the physical wounds made by the lictor. It was the stripes that justice laid upon His spirit.


____"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and Jehovah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."


____10th verse, "Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath made him sick." (Marginal rendering R. V.) Love could see humanity Redeemed. Faith could see a New Creation.


____He made Him sick with our sickness. We need not be sick. Only ignorance of our rights, or refusal to act upon the Word can keep us ill.


____He made Him sin with our sin. We need not remain in sin. He became sin that we might become Righteous. He went to Hell that we might go to Heaven.


____He was made weak that we might be made strong. He took our place, met every need, satisfied every claim of justice, and set us free.


____If this be the case, sickness on the part of the believer is wrong, just as weakness and every other thing that Satan brought upon man is wrong, because He suffered to put it away.

"Daughters of God, Receive My Fire!" 

By Lana Vawser



Desperation and Devotion

In the spirit, I saw the daughters of God as they sat at the feet of Jesus. What struck me was the DESPERATION that these daughters were living in. There was such a deep desperation for Jesus that was increasing and increasing in their hearts. There was a groan for Jesus that was being birthed which no words can describe. I heard the Lord say, "THEY ARE DRIVEN BY DESPERATION AND DEVOTION.”


Those two words were burning like flames of fire in the spirit: "DESPERATION" and “DEVOTION."


I watched as their hearts blazed in deep intimacy with Jesus and with a hunger to know Him. The gaze of their eyes blazed with the hunger of Psalm 84:10 (AMP): "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather stand [as a doorkeeper] at the threshold of the house of my God than to live [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.”


Then the Lord said to me, "Look again.”


I looked again. I heard another cry of desperation in their hearts; it was a cry of desperation to KNOW HIM. Then there was a deep wailing travail – a desperate need to see God move. These daughters of God were in such a place of desperation because of the warfare sent against them. The pressure they've had to face (especially lately) has brought them into a deeper place of desperation for HIS MOVE – His breakthrough.


This desperation wasn't a 'pleading' or a 'begging.' It was a ferocious roar of desperation – a "GOD YOU SAID" roar; a "I refuse to move from what You have said" roar.


In their cry of "GOD I NEED YOU," I could sense the weariness. I could sense that the battle had been fierce, but they were not driven by their weariness. They were not driven by doubt. They were driven by FAITH; they were driven by DEVOTION to Him, and deeply aware of their need for Him. Impossibilities were screaming at them in the face, and many had come to the end of themselves; the only answer was JESUS stepping in. 


Release of God's Waterfall of Fire


In the middle of that desperation – that cry – I heard the Lord say, "Daughters of God, RECEIVE MY FIRE! RUN! RUN! RUN! RUN!”


Suddenly, a waterfall of fire fell upon them. The spiritual attacks broke; the attacks of witchcraft broke. The boulders were demolished. The things that had tried to take them out, weigh them down and steal their voices were suddenly gone.


When the Lord said, "Run! Run! Run! Run!" it was not a call to busyness or striving. It was the second wind. It was the refreshment they had been waiting for. It was greater freedom. It was an empowerment of His Spirit that they had not yet experienced. There were breakthroughs and miraculous moves of His Spirit. Impossibilities became inhabited by His POWER. There were TURNAROUNDS – turnarounds that testified to the miracle-working power of JESUS!


These women were being marked afresh. They were being branded anew with the fire of His love and His presence. Chains were breaking off and hearts were being healed.


Arise, Daughters! Run in New Ways!


His voice thundered through the fire:


"You have been through fires that you feel have almost killed you and taken you out, but hear My word to you. I left you not. I abandoned you not. I was WITH YOU in the fire, and you have been BRANDED by ENCOUNTERING ME, the fourth man in the fire. The pressure was intense, the fire was hot, but here comes THE NEW WINE! In the pressing, I am bringing forth the new wine. You are carrying MY new wine.


"I am re-establishing you. I am repositioning you. Fire upon you! Fire upon you! Fire upon you! No longer will you be contained! No longer will you be cast down by the words of others. [You will be] branded afresh with My fire and power to arise and take your place and RUN IN NEW WAYS.”


His voice then got louder: "The waters are breaking. The confinements are breaking. The lids are being shattered. You are birthing. You are birthing. Here it comes. My pioneering fire is increasing upon you. You are going to begin to RUN IN NEW WAYS, [with] multiple births, multiple movements and multiple pathways.


"I am roaring over you, I am breathing over you and I am increasing vision [in] you to carry and run in some of the greatest assignments for this new era that you have ever stepped into. 


"As you live at My feet, daughter of Mine, you are arising as a warrior and you are stepping into a time of FLOURISHING, CARRYING MY FIRE like never before.


"You have felt, for so many years, the fires of trial, the fires of opposition and the fires of warfare [which] have tried to take you out – [but] NO MORE. I have built in you a fortification of intimacy with Me IN the fire, rooted deeply in the revelation that you live and move and have your being IN ME. You will no longer feel like you are constantly fighting for your life, but living in a place of deep peace, deep shalom and deep strength IN ME.


"I am inviting you deep into the depths of My heart and My Spirit – My living waters that you have NOT explored or lived in before. NOW you will know what it is to bear fruit and flourish in EVERY SEASON. Receive My fire.

It's Time for Transformation


"It's time for TRANSFORMATION like you have not known. It's TIME for you to arise as the daughter and woman I have called you to be, WITHOUT APOLOGY. Now you go forth running, empowered by MY Spirit, in MY WAY, [on] NEW pathways that I have before you, to see the move of My Spirit flow through your life in power and glory. I am bringing you full circle. You are stepping into hosting the greatest move of My Spirit in your home – through your home – and things I am having you build that are beyond your comprehension and imagination.


"You're coming into context, NOW. You're now stepping into greater fullness, healed and whole. Arising, carrying My fire, you are coming forth to carry My heart and pioneer the new things with Me (Isaiah 43:19). Arise! Receive My fire!"

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
