Move over frankincense, there’s an oil more powerful than anything you’ve ever experienced. It’s better than lavender, tea tree, more potent than oregano, and doesn’t cost a penny.
What if there were an oil that would guide you into all truth?
What if there were an oil that would teach you?
What if there were an oil that would empower you?
What if there were an oil that would grant you eternal life?
No, I’m not selling tickets to the fountain of youth. I’m telling you about the most important oil in the universe. You can take it with you anywhere you go. This oil can transform your life. The oil that reminds you of who you are and whose you are. The one that draws you close to the Father.
I love essential oils as much as the next person, but I would be doing you a disservice if I never told you about the most important, the most potent, and the most powerful essential oil of all.
The Holy Spirit is the Most Essential Oil
I know that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, but the word of God tells us that no one can come to Christ unless the Holy Spirit draws him. (John 6:44 and John 16:13-14)
Not only does the Holy Spirit draw us unto the Lord, He guides us in truth and empowers us to do God’s work on this earth.
The Holy Spirit is the Anointing Oil
In the Bible, oil was used to commission people to special tasks. It was used to send people out. They were anointed with actual oil. They would pour out over people’s heads. This wasn’t just a little drizzle, this was oil raining down.
The Holy Spirit is that oil. He is what is poured out over us to give us the ability to walk in truth, to hear from the Lord, and to empower us. (Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:18, John 16:13)
When we are anointed for ministry like Jesus was. (Acts 10:38) The word tells us that when we know Jesus, we would do greater works than even He did on the earth because of the Holy Spirit. (John 14:12)
And listen, every believer has the Holy Spirit, but the thing that really gives you power, the thing that truly allows you to walk in the same kind of power that Jesus did when He walked the earth is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. When you have the baptism of the Holy Spirit, it is said that rivers of living water would flow out of you (John 7:38). Now I don’t know about you, but to me, that sounds amazing.
Now, before you go getting any ideas about what the baptism of the Holy Spirit is and is not, check out these scriptures:
…for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now…Acts 1:5
As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.Matthew 3:11
…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.Acts 1:8
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit…Matthew 28:19
And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.Luke 24:49
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them.Acts 2:1-4
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.Acts 4:31
When you read these verses, you’ll discover that the Holy Spirit gives us boldness to speak God’s word. The Holy Spirit is powerful. The Holy Spirit can empower us anytime after we believe in Jesus Christ.
So, my question to you, is do you want to be doused in the most powerful essential oil for your Christian walk or not?
As much as I love my oils, nothing beats the sweet aroma of the Holy Spirit.
If yes, then read through these scriptures, and ask the Lord. Ask the Lord Jesus Christ who gives the spirit to all who ask. Ask for His baptism. There aren’t any special words to speak to make it happen. It’s an intimate experience between you and God. So go, spend some time in prayer and expect Him to show up and move in new and powerful ways.
