Julie Price: ~You Will Become The Oil Of His Presence ~
The Lord has begun to stir within me the message of the olive; the oil it produces and the process it endures to get there. It became a constant thought for me over a 24 hour period. I began to seek the the scriptures and God’s heart on what He wanted to say through me. Below is a message for you, His beloved.
The first thing the olive experiences is a washing. This is necessary to reduce the presence of any contaminants; in particular, soil that can create an unpleasant flavor in the oil.
~It’s important that the olive produce clean, pure, fragrant oil.~
Next, the olive endures an extreme process to produce the desired oil. There’s a tremendous crushing by use of an oil press to collect this golden juice. A stone is used to completely crush them. Then they are collected into a basket. The next step is a further processing where the basket is pressed with great force; extracting the oil out of the crushed olives and collecting the juice into a vat to be stored.
At this point the olive juice contains both water and oil, but after a period of time, the lighter oil in the juice floats above the water and can then be collected and stored in jars. This process is important because during this time, the olive drops are joining to form the largest droplets of oil and allowing the fruit enzymes to produce some of the desired oil aromas and taste. Shew! Thank goodness this process is over…NOT!
To ensure the integrity and purity of the oil is not compromised, the oil is protected for a time, from both oxygen and light. It’s a common practice with olive oil, regardless of it’s initial quality, to spend time stored in a cool, dark place, free of oxygen. This ensures complete precipitation and separation of the two phases of producing the olive oil. It facilitates the final stage in olive production; which is filtration. It contributes to the integrity and stability of the oil in its final state. Hello! Can you hear it church?!?! You were not forgotten. You were being protected in the final stages of your preparation; which to you felt like utter destruction and abandonment.
Church listen to this. Over the years, olive oil has been used for many things to include: cooking oil and food (in the same manner we are spiritually fed and can feed others), making soap (it can purify us), religious ceremonies (it is symbolic of many things to us), and medicinal use (to bring healing to our bodies). Why is all this important? Let me tell you!!!
Many of you have been in a time of extreme pressure.
There has been trouble all around you.
You have been pressed and crushed.
You feel set aside in a dark place
where it’s hard for you to get your breath
or see anything around you,
but you have been in process!
You are being prepared by Yeshua Himself to be poured out!
Church! Jesus’ name means “the Anointed”.
God is preparing us to be the containers that He pours Himself through in a mighty way.
We are being consecrated, separated;
specially prepared to be His Holy anointed ones
for His greater works and glory in the earth!

Beloved, see the process you have been in today for what it really is and rejoice! It’s time for a change in perspective. You were being prepared all this time and you are about to be poured out!
Stir yourself up!! Study the anointing, the olive, and the oil in His word. The scriptures and story are vast. There are too many to list today. But the Holy Spirit wants to get you thinking, so I leave you with this: The olive oil (holy anointing oil) mentioned in His Word was used many times throughout the Word. The olive leaf was used as a sign and was first carried by THE DOVE to the ark. It was used to anoint for healing and to anoint leaders and priests, and to anoint the rock Jacob slept upon where the Lord blessed His seed. It represents prosperity and is a symbol of the Christian church.
But hear me now! God really impressed the latter meanings in His Word upon me.
Olive oil was used to LIGHT THE TABERNACLE.
It represents adoration and dedication to the Lord.
It’s the truth in the lamps of the 10 virgins in the last hour
and at the last trump when Jesus Christ returns
his feet will touch the mount of Olives!
Oh church! I could go and on! You must take this journey about the olive, the oil, the anointing for yourself and let Him speak to you even more!
Of all the verses I could have listed regarding all this, I leave you with the verse He most wanted you to hear from Luke 4:18. I am writing it from Father’s heart as He has led me to do so to make it even more personal to you….
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon YOU CHURCH, because he has ANOINTED “YOU” to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent YOU to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bruised…”
RISE UP CHURCH!
A WORD FOR YOU TODAY!
A word by Joel Yount:
Several years ago while walking at a park an Eagle had flown right over me carrying what looked like a dead snake. The one thing that amazed me was how low the Eagle was flying as it flew above me. It was as if God was highlighting this occurrence that I had never experienced before.
Before seeing the Eagle and the snake, I had been walking around the park praying and declaring scriptures for breakthrough regarding a situation. Leading up to this time, it seemed as if there was an escalated season of attack from the enemy as someone had attempted to shut the Spirit Fuel website down. However, God stepped in and the individual responsible for that attempt did not succeed. Praise God!
Pay Attention To Signs God Reveals To You
God had stepped in many ways in only he could do. The escalated attacks had ceased. The Lord revealed to me that the Eagle had represented His power and protection coming down and taking the enemy (the snake) out of his place.
The Lord instructed me to send this testimony out today because He wants to remind many of you that nothing is hard for Him. He will send signs in the natural that relate to what is going on in the supernatural.
The prayers and declarations of saying scripture out loud at the park had activated something in the Spirit realm I believe. One important action I had taken before this event was sowing several seeds into different ministries. This act stretched my faith. When I saw what God did and how he turned the enemy’s plans upside down I was amazed. God is turning the enemy’s plans upside down in your own life today! Do something in the natural to activate the supernatural in your life today.
Right now I encourage you to sow a seed of $50, $25, $100, or $500 into Spirit Fuel and name it “Breakthrough” as an act of faith. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. It takes a dedicated team and resources to maintain the Spirit Fuel platform.
