The Power of Anointing Oil and the Prayer of Faith Can Heal You !
Anointing Oil was used all through out the Bible in the Old and New Testaments.It is used as a point of contact for God to move upon people for healing,miracles,signs and wonders. In this Post we will look at how God used the Power of Anointing Oil and the Prayer of Faith !
AN OLD TESTAMENT EXAMPLE
In Exodus 40:1-10 Then the Lord spoke to Moses,saying on the first day of the month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, you shall put in it the Ark of the Testimony,and partition off the ark with the veil. You shall bring in the table and arrange the things that are to be set in order on it,you shall bring in the lampstand and light its lamps. You shall also set the altar of gold for the incense before the Ark of the Testimony, and put up the screen for the door of the tabernacle. Then you shall set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.And you shall set the laver between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar, and put water in it.You shall set up the court all around, and hang up the screen at the court gate. And you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it;and you shall hallow it and all it’s utensils, and it shall be holy.You shall anoint the altar of the burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar.The altar shall be most holy.
In this passage God commanded Moses to set up the Tabernacle and in verse 9 he took anointing oil and anointed the altar and consecrated the altar and the altar became Most Holy. There is something Holy about anointing oil and prayer.God considers it Holy. The Tabernacle became so Holy that in Exodus 40:34-38 the Glory Cloud and the Glory of the Lord came into the Tabernacle so much so that Moses was not able to enter the Tabernacle !
BURDEN REMOVING,YOKE DESTROYING POWER OF GOD !
In Isaiah 10:27 it says:it shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.The anointing of God has been called the burden removing, yoke destroying, power of God.When people come to Church with burdens they should leave with those burdens removed. When people come to Church with yokes they should leave with those yokes destroyed.
THE ANOINTING HEALS THE SICK
Mark 6:7-13 it says: He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff, no bag, no bread,no cooper in their money belts but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics. Also He said to them , In whatever place you enter a house,stay there until you depart from that place. And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dusk under your feet as a testimony against them.Assuredly,I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgement than for that city. So they went out and preached that people should repent.And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
In this passage Jesus sent the 12 disciples out to evangelize and in verse 13 it says they cast out many demons and anointed with oil many who were sick and healed them. As I said before there is Power in Anointing Oil and the Prayer of Faith.
In Luke 7:36-50 it says: A woman who was a sinner poured very expensive oil on Jesus and the man who owned the house thought how could Jesus allow a woman like her to touch him and Jesus perceived his thoughts and told him a parable of two men that were in debt one owed a small amount and one owed a large amount and both were forgiven of their debts and Jesus asked him which loved the man the most who forgave them ? The man said the most who owed the most. Jesus said he was right. Then Jesus said this woman had many sins but they were now forgiven.She poured oil on Jesus and her prayers were heard and it resulted in her being forgiven.
In James 5:14-16 it says: Is anyone among you sick ? Let him call for the elders of the Church, let them pray over them,anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.And if he has committed sins,he will be forgiven.Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective,fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
This passage clearly says when we call upon the elders of the Church and the elders pray over us and anoint us with oil and pray the prayer of faith we will be healed and forgiven. This again shows the Power of Anointing Oil and the Prayer of Faith !
This passage is what the woman in Luke 7 did. If anyone was an elder of the Church it would be Jesus and she came to him and anointed him and she was forgiven.
THE POWER OF ANOINTING OIL AND THE PRAYER OF FAITH !
We had a Service in our Church where our guest speaker told us to bring anointing oil and we set it at the altar and we prayed over the oil that it would not longer be a natural oil but a supernatural oil and we also gave an offering at the altar and God considered this to be a Holy Thing just as is recorded in Exodus Chapter 40. As a result of this we received Miracle Reports of when that oil was poured on people they were healed !
Why did that happen ? Because the anointing is the burden removing, yoke destroying Power of God ! And when we combine the Anointing Oil and the Prayer of Faith it produces healing,miracles and signs and wonders !
