While studying the Bible for the writing of this book, I discovered that God uses the anointing oil as a ministry tool. The Bible says in Psalm 45:7, “Therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” God anoints with the oil of joy, the oil of gladness, the oil of lifted spirit. God spiritually applies this oil to comfort us in difficult situations. The anointing oil is a powerful tool for ministering healing to the world; it is one of the weapons of deliverance and victory provided for us by God in the Bible.
Since I discovered the anointing oil, my life has become one happy event after another. I first heard of the anointing oil through a friend who drove my cousin to Slough in London to move her luggage to a new house. On getting there, she found out that her keys were not with her. She quickly moved into action. She took out her anointing oil and anointed the door; she commanded the door to open in Jesus name. She did it three times and on the third time she pushed the door and it opened. This friend confided in me that he then knew this lady was serving a living God.
When I heard this, I determined to study the Bible on the subject of the anointing oil, and I asked the Holy Spirit to teach me more from his Word about this subject. As the light started to come to me from God on the anointing oil, I made sure I had the anointing oil all over my home. I also got some from the church, which I mixed, in a big bottle that I bought.
The very first time the Lord sent me out to start ministering to the sick, he told me “put your anointing oil in your bag” I obeyed. As soon as I stepped out of my house, a lady pushed her little daughter in the pram. The little girl just reached out for my dress. She held on to my dress and then I stooped to say hello to her. When I looked at her, all her skin was full of blisters. I got up and looked at her mum and asked her what was wrong with the baby. She told me that the baby had Eczema, but the doctors could do nothing, all medical attempts to cure eczema had failed and the baby cried all night before sleeping. I asked her if I could pray for the baby, she said “Yes! Yes! Please”. I prayed over that baby, then I heard the Lord say to me, “give her the bottle of anointing oil in your bag” I took the anointing oil out of my handbag and gave it to her and she asked me what it was, I explained to her about the anointing oil and I drank a little of it to show her it was not harmful. I taught her how to use it. I asked her if she would use it and she said, “yes she would”. I left her and continued on my way.
This was to be the beginning of a road ministry where, repeatedly, I will have to give away bottles of the anointing oil as the Holy Spirit led me. It is indeed true that the Lord will not send us out without the anointing oil, like the disciples he will always desire for us to carry the anointing oil with us as we set out into the world to minister healing to the sick – Mark 6:1
A good report:
As I continued this roadside ministry, one day in church, seated next to me, was a little boy and his mum, and this boy had a very bad skin disease. I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, “pray for him after the service and give the mother the anointing oil in your bag”. After the service, I told the mum what the Lord told me to do. She was happy for me to pray for her son, and I gave her the anointing oil in my bag as the Holy Spirit had instructed me. I told her to mix it with the son’s body cream. After some months, I sat again in church next to them, and this time, her son’s skin was perfect. The Lord had totally healed him.
This was the beginning of my use of the anointing oil, and soon it became a part of me. A lot of my friends saw how I was using the anointing oil and the testimony that was coming from me and started using it. The anointing oil works. There is no sickness or situation too hard for the anointing oil; the anointing oil paves the way in any given situation for the Holy Spirit to come in and do great works.
I want to leave you with this statement “the taste of the pudding is in the eating,” until you taste for yourself, you may not really appreciate the sweetness of the anointing oil. Don’t wait a moment longer. Get your anointing oil and use it today. It works. The bible says, “taste and sees that the Lord is good</em>” the anointing oil is just another of the countless goodness that he has given to humanity. Take it by faith and use it. Why not? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. God bless you as you read.
The anointing oil is a sure prescription:
If anyone is sick, they should call on the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well. The Lord will raise him. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven James 5:13-15.
Anointing oil is the safest and most powerful prescription in the world today. What is a prescription? It is the action of laying down authoritative rules or direction—a written direction or order for the preparation and use of a medicine. Medicine prescribed. It is the raw power of God in bottled oil. It is a prescription from Almighty God according to Ezra 7:22-23;“—A hundred baths of olive oil…Without limit, Whatever the God of heaven has prescribed, let it be done with diligence. Here we note that God prescribed the anointing oil to be used in faith. The anointing oil will penetrate through any stronghold and bring it down.
The anointing oil will deal with any deep hurt in your heart. If you feel like you are about to fall apart emotionally, the anointing oil of His power used in faith can bring peace into your life. Do you have a physical illness, condition, or affliction? Have you tried to lose weight or break your self-loose from a controlling habit? Are you seeking to be fruitful like so many women of the Bible, such as Sarah and Hannah? Do you need to overcome some internal defect stopping you from welcoming the fruit of your womb, like Ruth? The anointing oil used in the faith of God’s power can enable you to become pregnant. The Bible tells us that the anointing oil will destroy the yoke.
