Laugh your way into 2017!

A Word through Lana Vawser, LAUGH YOUR WAY INTO 2017!

Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂

Lana Vawser
There has been SIGNIFICANT resistance and attack that many are facing this week. As I sat with the Lord through the STORM that has been happening in the spirit for many this week, I heard the Lord say “THE RESISTANCE IS ABOUT THE RELEASING RUSHING RECOMPENSE.” 
RECOMPENSE: To compensate, repay, reimburse, reward for loss, harm or effort made (Definition taken from Google) 
The body of Christ have entered into a MAJOR TRANSITION point seeing the RELEASING OF RUSHING RECOMPENSE. God is RESTORING, He is REPAYING His people and releasing divine REIMBURSEMENT for all the enemy has stolen, killed and destroyed. 
This week in particular there has been SO MUCH activity in the spirit and I have seen the enemy really “upping his antics”, but the Lord wants us to pay him NO ATTENTION. Keep your eyes on Jesus and know that the RUSHING RELEASE of RECOMPENSE is CRASHING into your life. 
Where the enemy has really trespassed, the Lord is giving you back double portions in your land of inheritance. You are going to “take back your land” in double portions. 
I have really felt the Lord highlighting these last few days before 2016 comes to a close. Keep your eyes peeled, for there will be demonstrations that have already begun and will increase of significant RESTORATION, RECOMPENSE and the REIMBURSEMENT of heaven.
These attacks that have come against many of God’s people this week have been so hard and I saw LOTS of tears and struggle/grief and pain this week. I want to encourage you there is a TURNING ON THE MOURNING!!! EXPECT encounters with His heart that is going to release JOY, JOY, JOY!!!!!! 
You will SEE through the LENSE OF JOY!!!!!! 
I decree over you where there has been tears of mourning, especially this week, your next set of tears will be tears of JOY in PROPORTIONS you have never experienced before as you seek the heart of Jesus. JOY is going to SUDDENLY manifest all around you.
I had a vision where I saw Jesus laughing with ALL the angels of heaven….. SUCH JOY!!!!!!!!!!!
The LAUGH OF THE VICTORIOUS ONE is manifesting in your life for all the enemy has put you through. The enemy is being reminded by Jesus and the people of God arising in the awakening of their authority that he has ALREADY LOST!!!! 
I heard the Lord say “BE INTENTIONAL TO LAUGH LEADING UP TO THE CROSSOVER AND INTO 2017”. I watched the people of God all across the body of Christ, laughing, even when they didn’t feel like it and I saw the laughter releasing an IMPARTATION of joy, rising expectations of HOPE, prophetic insight being released and excitement for 2017. 
You INTENTIONAL LAUGHTER leading into 2017 is bringing a SIGNIFICANT SHIFT in the Spirit, setting the stage for greater manifested victory in your life in 2017. 
Let’s all join together with Jesus and the angels and LAUGH!!!!

Train like Rocky!

The words on this photo is so prophetic! We could learn so much spiritually, from Rocky and his trainer!No matter what the enemy throws at you, mentally, physically, spiritually, keep getting back up, keep pressing g into Father God! Keep praying! Keep fasting! Keep trusting Him! Keep seeking His Words, His heart, who He is and His Counsel! Trust Him, He is your Strengthener!

He has NEVER lost a battle! Let Him train you!!
John 14:12-12 AMP, “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do: and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. 13 And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as representing all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son. 15. If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands. 16. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever- 17. The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or KNOW and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.”
John 15:4-8 AMP, “Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. 5. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. 6. If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. 7. If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My Words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. 8. When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.”
John 16:33 AMP “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”

The Loin King

The Lion King
  The movie is so prophetic. Mufasa, the father of Simba, represents God, both Father and Son. Simba represents His children, us.

When we are young in Christ, we enjoy Him. We want to hear from Him, talk with Him, and just go on loving Him in our simple way.

As we start maturing in Christ, we are expected to learn and grow up. Just like Simba, Father warns us of certain things, stay away from that area (sin), and in fact The Holy Spirit who is your Counselor, Advocate, Teacher, Strengthener and Standby will teach you all things (see John 14:26 amp).
As we are walking along with The Holy Spirit, He convicts us (see John 16:7-11), and like Simba, we don’t always appreciate His correction or teaching. So we don’t listen, and maybe even mock Him.

The enemy, played as Scar, roams around, jealous of God’s creation of man after being thrown out of Heaven for rebelling and being proud against God, (see Isaiah 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28:11-19). He’s jealous that these people are called His Children, and he is an outcast.

So he plots, with the fallen angels, to bring destruction to man. The destruction will be the most devastating,… having the man outcast from the very presence of God, just as he was.

Scar, like satan, lures the young cub (woman) into doing something they shouldn’t by twisting the truth, (see Genesis 2:15-17, 3:17). The young Simba takes the bait, and is left alone, in a tree, while Scar and his hyena cohorts create a stampede where Simba is!

Then Scar tells the king, Mufassa, that his son is in danger! But Scar’s plot is more than just killing the cub (man), his true intention is to kill the king.

Mufassa, runs to Simba, fighting against the stampede to save his son, risking his own life to save him. Just like Jesus, Father and Jesus made a plan to redeem people of their sins, so they could be in the very presence of God once more, and forever. So Jesus willingly, came to earth, to teach, be an example and die for our redemption. He was the last sacrifice ever to be made for sin (see Hebrews 10:1-18).

Mufassa died to save his son. Simba was heartbroken! And like satan, Scar, pretending to care for Symba, convinced him that he was the reason his father was dead. Then, Scar gave him some advice, “Run away Symba”. 

Like most Christians, the enemy will lie to us and twist the truth, just like he did in the garden of Eden. He will tell us things like, “God is mad at you.” or “You are such a disappointment to God, why would He ever use you?” Or, “See, your prayers weren’t answered, after all that praying too! Obviously being a Christian is a waste of time and not real.” His objective? Just like with Adam and Eve, to create a separation between us and God. And just like Simba, we sometimes take the lie as truth, and we run away from His presence. 

Just as Scar told the hyenas to kill Simba, the enemy wants to kill any possible relationship we could ever have with Father. He knows that we are joint heirs with Jesus, (see Romans 8:12-17), and that we are given power and authority against satan, (see Mark 16:15-18, Matthew 10:6-8, Luke 10:19). So they chase us out into the wilderness, and threaten us to never come back!
Out in the wilderness, alone, without the presence and closeness with Father God, we slowly die. Hearing Father literally gives us life, (see John 6:63)!

Into the picture come Timon and Pumbaa. They see Simba, and have compassion on him. They give him shade, water and non-desirable food. I see these characters as Ministering Angels, as well as The Holy Spirit. Out in the wilderness, where we feel alone, guilty, hurt, and discouraged, Father still loves us and sends messages to us, encouraging us to come home to Him. They encourage us through a song, a billboard, a radio station, that small Voice deep inside… no matter how much we try to drowned it out through distractions. He keeps longing for us with a jealous love, (see James 4:1-5), despite all the distractions we can think of.

Like Simba, who is trying hard to forget his past and his true identity, we as Christians tend to do the same thing. And just like Scar and satan, he is very happy that we have run away, forgetting that we have power and authority over him! He is happily running around, oppressing people, lying to them, making them into his slaves and killing them off slowly. He has them convinced that he is king, and that he has all the power and authority. And as long as we aren’t in the picture, running away, happily ignoring our duties, singing “Hakuna Matata”, he is free to steal, kill and destroy (see John 10:10) with no one to stop him.
After a while, Simba’s past catches up to him out of desperation. The lion pride is starving, there is no water, and the land is in runes. The lionesses have to venture out farther to find food. Little did Nila know that she would find Simba, the rightful king, the one who has the authority to change everything!

Like Christians, we may try to keep running, but seeing all of the injustice, oppression, hate, fear, lies, agony will catch up with us. We can either take our rightful place, as a servant of The Most High God, speaking His Words, and standing up for the poor, orphaned, widowed, and anyone in need (see Matthew 6:1-15, actually all of Matthew 6).

Finally, after some convincing through a knock to the head, and a re-introduction to his father, Simba decides to go back to Pride Rock and take his rightful place as king.

We too, as Christians need to take our rightful place as joint heirs with Christ, and free the oppressed through our relationship with Father in His Presence! (See Psalm 31:20 and Psalm 91). This means, submitting to Him and His Will, not our own. Loving Him with all that we are, and loving others (see Matthew 22:35-40, 1 Corinthians 13:1-8), saying what He tells us to say, and do what He shows us to do just like Jesus did, (see John 3:32-34, John 5:19-32).

Now once Symba gets to Pride Rock, he sees the oppression, and it’s bad! Symba goes to challenge Scar for his rightful place in authority. Of course Scar is a bit surprised to see Simba, alive. Out of fear of loosing his position of lording over his subjects, he tries once again to convince Simba and all the others that Simba is the reason his father is dead. He tries to make Simba feel guilty once again, in hopes that he will run away once more, and tries to turn the others against Simba too. If he can accomplish this, then the whole pride will kill Simba, and he can keep on doing what he has been doing with no one else to challenge him. 

This is something satan does all the time. He will try to make you feel guilty, ashamed, doubt, fear, worry, feel insecure in your relationship with Father, remember, that’s his main objective! Without a relationship with The King of kings, and obeying His Words, nothing can happen. We as Christians need to KNOW Father God, Jesus the Christ (The Anointed One) and The Holy Spirit. We need to know them, and be so close to Them as much as we need to breathe!
During the challenge, a fight breaks out, and Scar makes the mistake of revealing his dirty little secret,… that HE killed Mufasa! He thought he had Simba beat, and figured it couldn’t hurt to tell the truth just this once, but what a backlash from Simba! 

Once we figure out how much the enemy twists the truth and lies, (he is the father of lies, see John 8:43-45) we should be upset at all he has stolen, destroyed, murdered, and oppressed, and through Father and His Words, give him a backlash like he never dreamed of! We should all be so close to Father God, Jesus The Christ and the Holy Spirit that satan himself can’t tell if we are us or Jesus!! (See Ephesians 5:1)
Eventually Simba and the pride turn on Scar, seeing his lies exposed. He even tries to blame everything on his fellow cohorts, the hyenas. But he doesn’t realize that hey overheard him talking, and they eventually turned on him and killed him.

That’s typical of demons, they work together to accomplish certain things, and yet hate each other. There is nothing good in them.
Simba took his rightful place, and because of him realizing who he truly was, he became the defender of Pride Rock, and king.

Just like Simba, we as Christians need to take our rightful place as “kings no priests to God our Father” (see Revelation 1:5-6). But before we can be a king before God, carrying our His Authortiy in His Name, we must become priests to God, through Worshiping God The Father, our Lord Jesus The Christ and The Holy Spirit. We must be before Him in worship, communing (talking) with Him, praying to Him for the Nations, for out city, for our neighbor, for our President, for every place that there is oppression. To love on Him, to stand in awe of His beautiful, fathomless, selfless LOVE, in all His Glory and Majesty. This is where we need to be at all times, before Him, praying WITH what His Will is, and for what is on His Heart. Working in cooperation to His desires, His Word and Authority, making His enemies His footstool, (see Luke 20:41:43).
