From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
I consider Lana Vawser a forerunner in this new generation of prophetic voices.
We recently interviewed her live online for our Elijah Streams show. I’m so proud of her and seeing how she has risen up as a trusted voice in the prophetic movement.
Many of you will relate to this word from Lana, as you are full of promises from God and have felt pressure for quite some time. But take heart! You are experiencing the pressure before the promise.
If you need a charge and a fresh word from the Lord about the promises at hand, please be encouraged and read this word for our friend Lana Vawser. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

“Pressure Before the Promise” Lana Vawser, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
I was preparing to minister to a group recently, and one of the words the Lord gave me for them was, “It is PRESSURE before the PROMISE.”
As I sat with the Lord, the Lord spoke to me that this word was not just for many in the group, but many in the Body of Christ. The Lord has given many of you a specific promise that He has said is going to manifest now, in this time; and as many of you have positioned yourselves in faith and begun to walk by faith in these promises, it seems that all Hell has broken loose over your promise.
The truth is, the enemy is coming at your promise with blazing fury; he’s terrified of you receiving and stepping into this promise because of what it signifies.
The Lord showed me that this is indeed a kairos season and this is the APPOINTED TIME for the NEW LIFE—the NEW LIFE of His promise being received and manifested—and the enemy doesn’t like it. The Lord showed me that this intense pressure, which the enemy has been bringing upon many on every side, has been more intense than anything you have walked in in quite a long time. The enemy is trying to squeeze you out of your promise but the truth is, you are moving through the narrow way, the birthing canal, into receiving your promise.
The Lord spoke to me and said, “It is the pressure before the promise.” The pressure is an indicator that the promise is upon you.
The Promise Fulfilled Symbolizes More Than You Realize
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “The promise fulfilled symbolizes more than you realize.”
This promise the Lord has given you, and you receiving this promise and stepping into it, symbolizes more than just the receiving of what the Lord has said; He also showed me that the PROMISE IS A TRUMPET.
When I asked the Lord, “Lord, why is the promise a trumpet?” He said, “It is a trumpet because it is HERALDING; a shift of a completely new era in the lives of My people.” (Photo via nellis.af.mil)
The reason there is such contention over this promise is because there is going to be an activation that is going to take place in the spirit, and it is going to happen in the manifestation of the promise. I heard the Holy Spirit say that the receiving of this promise is tied to your ASSIGNMENT and your DESTINY.
The Lord showed me that when you step into the receiving and manifestation of the promise in the natural, this will signal a shift into a new realm of your destiny.
The Lord is going to activate and open up a whole new realm of revelation and moving in His Spirit as you step into it. The Lord also showed me that in the receiving of this promise, there will not only be the promise fulfilled in the natural, but that there will be new mantles that are going to fall upon you in that time.
The manifestation of the promise is a promise fulfilled in the natural, but it is also a trumpet heralding a new era upon you, as His child, to move with Him into new things, new pathways, new mantles and new anointings. That’s WHY the enemy is raging like mad, because he’s furious and does NOT want you to move into the place of occupying and inheriting; and he especially does not want you moving into new realms of your destiny that are closely connected to this promise fulfilled, whether you know it yet or not.
Major Deliverance, Healing and Wholeness
The Lord showed me that in the receiving of this promise of the Lord in its manifestation, there is major deliverance, healing and wholeness taking place.
Many of you have been dealing with areas of your life where the enemy continues to come in and attack and attempt to crumble you and intimidate you. There has been a spirit of witchcraft that has come against many of you over and over and over again, and it continues to come in different ways to steal from you, attempting to stop you from moving into your assigned times and seasons with the Lord.
The Lord showed me the enemy coming with his old tricks, old ways, old strategies, and he coming in such a way that is “twisting” and “attempting to confuse.” But the Lord is saying that there is such a major deliverance, healing and wholeness that is going to happen simultaneously in the receiving of this promise manifested. This spirit of witchcraft has continued to push “buttons” in the lives of many Believers, causing them to feel like they continue to “come under” the effect and oppression of this spirit, but God is healing His people, removing the oppression, and delivering them.
The Lord showed me that many of you have been assaulted by a spirit of witchcraft for many years, and others of you have faced it your whole lives. Some of you have recognized it while others haven’t, but there has been a battle with this demonic spirit for a very long time. The Lord is not only bringing you above this attack, now, in teaching you how to stand against it—and bringing a shift within in the manifested promise, with major healing, deliverance and wholeness—but He is also raising up the WARRIOR within you like never before!

The Warrior Within
This spirit has come after you and assaulted you for so long, but now the Lord is going to use you to WAGE WAR against this spirit of witchcraft. Your victory won’t be through you going out looking for it or chasing it down, but through your obedience to the Lord and operating in the gifting, anointing and strategy of the Lord. He will use you to come against this demonic spirit of witchcraft, uncovering and exposing its operation in others’ lives and places. You will see the Holy Spirit move through you to bring radical deliverance to others who have been mightily affected by this demonic spirit.
The pressure has been intense. The onslaught of this witchcraft attack has been heavy. There’s been much pressure, but focus not on what the enemy is doing. Lift up your eyes, for where does your help come from? It comes from the Maker of Heaven and Earth (Psalm 121). Keep your eyes on Jesus.
Listen past the noise of the pressure the enemy has been placing upon you and HEAR THE SOUND OF THE PROMISE. Hear the sound of the NEW LIFE coming forth.
This is the hour! This is the day! This is the moment where that specific promise which the Lord has told you is for now is going to MANIFEST; it is IMMINENT and it symbolizes WAY more than you realize.
This promise is a TRUMPET heralding a NEW ERA upon you in your relationship and walk with the Lord, unlocking of a new realm of your destiny…for such a time as this (Esther 4:14).
