Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

Mat 26:36-46

36  Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. 
37  And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 
38  Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. 
39  And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. 
40  And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 
41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 
42  He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. 
43  And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. 
44  And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 
45  Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 
46  Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Our Worship Song for the Week:

There is Power in the Blood of the Lamb

Would you be free from your burden of sin?There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;Would you o’er evil a victory win?
 
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the blood of the Lamb;There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the precious blood of the Lamb.
 
Would you be free from your passion and pride?There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;We’ll come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
 
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the blood of the Lamb;There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the precious blood of the Lamb.
 
Would you do service for Jesus your King?There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;Would you live daily His praises to sing?There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
 
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the blood of the Lamb;There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the precious blood of the Lamb.
 
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the blood of the Lamb;There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’rIn the precious blood of the Lamb.In the precious blood of the Lamb.

A WORD FOR THOSE IN DESPAIR OVER UNFULFILLED DREAMS & PLANS

By Nate Johnston

I had a dream last night that was so simple yet powerful. 

In the dream I was with a group of people standing at a large bronze gate waiting to inspect and survey this dream property.

“What are we waiting for?” I ask. 

“The keys to the gate” someone next to me said. 

Then out of nowhere discouragement broke out and they began to say “This won’t work. It’s past its due date. It didn’t happen and it’s now time to let it go”

Suddenly a man in a tattered jacket takes out a thick document and throws it on the ground and walks away In utter despair. 

They all left In a broken-down truck together leaving me standing there at the gate wondering what I had just witnessed. 

I felt grieved because it seemed like they had poured their lives into this vision but they just felt done with believing for something that hadn’t come to pass. 

They were over pioneering and stewarding prophetic words that didn’t come to any level of fruition. 

I know the feeling. It can be painful and perplexing. 

As I stood there at the gate I began to have my own moment of despair as it brought up some unfinished dreams and gates that had not been “UNLOCKED” that I had felt that God wanted us to pursue over the years. 

“Yeh Lord didn’t you say………”

“Didn’t you give me all those dreams?”

“What about all the prophetic puzzle pieces over the years that lead to this? Now the gate just remains shut?”

I slumped to the ground feeling overwhelmed with the feeling of failure and like I had bought a lie and I knew this is what that group that left felt too. 

Deep hope deferred and soul sickness.. 

But then the Lord began to speak;

“Get up! Get up! Shake off the dust! Pick up your building plans! Pick up the vision that you dropped!”

“For I am not a man that I should lie, and I am not one who gives false hope”

“I do not give dreams to string you along but to keep you fixed on the vision that I PROMISE TO FULFILL!”

“And just as despair and delay is causing my people to let go of what I gave them because the gate seems locked shut, Watch now as I BUST IT WIDE OPEN!”

“And this will be a season of SUDDEN PROVISION & DIRECTION to bring to pass what I gave you long ago” 

“And you will see what has felt at arms reach come into your grasp so you can finally BUILD THE BLUEPRINTS I PUT INSIDE YOU”

“For you have said “I can’t go beyond this point without the keys and provision”

“And this is why the enemy has assaulted you on every side with lack, loss, debt, red tape and closed doors – so you would go back to survival mode and FORFEIT FAITH”

“But you aren’t empty handed and I am not late”

Now watch me FINISH IT!

Ps Jeff’s Special Today:  “Bitterness

Peter speaks to the sorcerer, Simon, who offered money to be able to receive the power of the Holy Spirit: Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money! You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.” (Acts 8: 20-23). And James 3:13-15 also answers bitterness: Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.”

Being candid with yourself and the Holy Spirit, is this issue of bitterness blocking your serving your Almighty Creator today? Is there any remnant of this old pattern needing to be confessed? Are there any old vows towards others based on bitterness? Do you think this is only applicable to the disciples 2,000 years ago? Do you have any residue of a residue of this issue for such a time as this? Was it connected to your upbringing as a child? Was it a family pattern in any way?

God bless you as you seek His Holy Spirit Wisdom and Comfort on this issue. May you go forward on His narrow path, “perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1).
