Under Pressure

Christopher Lauffer

(Mat. 26:41) WATCH and PRAY, that ye enter not into temptation: the SPIRIT indeed IS WILLING, but the FLESH IS WEAK.

We must not allow our focus to shift from the spirit realm into the natural, for hell is trying its best to steal all hope and joy from this nation. Recently, I scrolled through news articles and read many posts on social media, and it absolutely tore my heart to see what has happened in America. I felt the most intense Godly sorrow in my inner man as I saw households divide, and family and friends turn against one another. I desperately petitioned God’s intervention and prayed for a revelation of His truth for this perilous time.

I then opened my eyes and saw an olive press with the word, “Gethsemanewritten upon it! Understand, that the most pivotal (of crucial importance in relation to the development or success of something else) moment that changed this world and rewrote history was manifested in this same place.

The Messiah, in great sorrow, had come to a garden called Gethsemane, meaning “the oil press”, to encounter God the Father in prayer. Jesus had also taken a few of His faithful men with Him, trusting them to, “tarry here, and watch with me!” This act of obedience now demonstrates to us how we should approach great sorrowful and devastating moments in our lives today.

This country is undeniably under great amounts of pressure, similar to what Jesus endured 2,000 years ago, and we must do our part by approaching the throne room and cry out for God to wake us up.

The olive press will either awaken and empower us to seek the Lord, ultimately bringing healing and unity to this nation by manifesting the revival producing glory of God, or cause us to blindly fall asleep, fully unaware of the deceptive illusion entrapping us.

But be encouraged, for the Spirit is WILLING! I hear the Lord’s plea, “can you not watch and pray for one hour?” This decision is pivotal in seeing Elohim revive this nation and change the world!

Jesus is saying, “I am praying for YOU. May your faith not fail. Let not fear quench your trust in Me. Don’t let pain come without the gains of POWER. STAY WOKE sons and daughters of the most High King. The pressure is producing! The anointing, that not only breaks and destroys the yoke of bondage, but also SETS the captive FREE, and HEALS the sick and feeble, is flowing!”

Let your prayer and supplication shift the heavens and align with His divine will. Let us become one with Yahweh once again. Let’s declare peace and unity over our homes and families, believing that tidings of great joy shall overflow into our streets, carrying with it an open heaven of favor and blessing for our lives!

The FLESH is WEAK! Do not rely on it as you run the race. Instead, allow the roaring lion inside of you to display the attributes of our Holy and Just God. Remember, this is the launching pad to our breakthrough and path to our destiny.

Sons and daughters, do not forget that the Messiah’s prayer cried out for the sacrifice to overcome! So, do not get it twisted. THE BLOOD STILL WORKS!

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was (2 Tim. 3:1-9).
