Types Of Opposition You May Be Dealing With Right Now & Why
A Word by Nate Johnston
Opposition to the deeper REST/RESET:
This is where the enemy wars against you entering the secret place, bombarding you with busyness, striving, pressure to get things done, and sudden overwhelming distractions. The healing and heart clearing is so important right now and for some God is doing a complete makeover, cutting hidden ties, and removing wounds and trauma you didn’t even know you were carrying.
Opposition of CLARITY to receive revelation/blueprints:
This is where the enemy sends chatter and words against you, where the atmosphere feels foggy and confusion tries to set in, and while God is always speaking it feels like the pieces don’t connect or seems unclear. For many this is manifested in the battle of the mind coming against them right now and the temptation to fall back into old mindsets, fears, and panic, but has been mainly been coming through peoples words of mockery and judgement. The war against you to RECEIVE is because the delivery is vital right now.
Opposition on your VOICE:
In a time that the pure and clear prophetic has never been needed more there has been an obvious assignment to shut down voices rising up. Often disguised as wisdom, safe-guarding, and protecting purity(which are all necessary) this imposter spirit wants to shut down the prophetic by causing division, fault-finding/critical spirit, and instead of broadcasting hope – broadcasting opinions and agendas. This causes true voices of hope to shut down and hide.
Opposition on what God is BUILDING in you:
This is where the enemy very directly hits you in the very area God is really adding favor, anointing, conviction, and vision in. He wants to sabotage it by making you second guess yourself, bring in controlling people and measures to taint it, or cause delays and setbacks/closed doors in the places God has promised.
Opposition to your mantle and new mission/appointment
Very much the same as what God is building in you but specifically the opposition that comes as a direct result of the noticeable increase you have stepped on and the office/appointment you have before you. The enemy sees the new mantle, your sudden fire and rising authority and has been warring against the appointment with weariness and disappointment. This is where you need wisdom and discernment to know that you aren’t taking on yokes, wrong armour, or peoples stuff, but only what God anoints and mantles you with.
WHY AM I DEALING WITH OPPOSITION RIGHT NOW?
- God is taking you from GLORY TO GLORY
- Your story is changing. Your track history is changing.
- God is LIFTING you out of a whole way of living you got way too used to, administering his healing balm, restoration, and justice from many years ago. It’s the line in the sand so you can move into this season FULLY.
- New blueprints and VISION are coming to you! You are in a new unknown era and God is giving you clear GPS directions, coordinates, and mission details for you to steward and walk out.
- Your once hidden, squashed, silenced, and timid voice is suddenly ROARING from within you and making its way to the surface. You have no agenda, no territory to selfishly protect, and no motives or self-promotion and the earth needs the pure sound of your voice to cut through the noise.
- God is BUILDING you, ESTABLISHING you, ANOINTING you afresh, and moving through you in a way you have not seen Him do!
- You have been commissioned by God in the wilderness and now you are coming out of that season with a weighty governmental mantle and call to the nations to see them come to Jesus!
SO HOW DO I RESPOND?
- Take higher ground. PURSUE the secret place. FIGHT for it. It says in Hebrews 4:11 “Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest” It can be difficult in pressure but its the only place you can get free/clear.
- Be armoured up. Take communion regularly.
- Rebuke the wind and waves. This is your offensive stance. Get out the word and bind up what is coming at you. Clear the atmosphere. Tell the opposition to STOP in Jesus name.
- SHAKE IT OFF & MOVE ON! In Acts 18:6 it says “But when they opposed and insulted him, he shook out his garments and told them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent of it. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.” Don’t let it stop you, hold you back, or slow you down.
- Keep your vision before you regardless of what you see. Write down the vision, prophesy it, steward your promises, and guard them with your life.
- Look at what GOD is doing! We must keep our eyes on Jesus more than the storm, or than any pandemic. What is God doing and saying over you right now?
