Psalm 92:10 " But
my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall
be anointed with fresh oil"
As you have just read from the verse above, we have the
promise of receiving fresh oil or the anointing. We as
believers do not have to live in yesterday’s anointing. We
come to a place in our walk with the Lord where every day the
Lord is pouring that fresh oil upon us.
Psalm 23:5 “Thou
preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
Staying in that place is not determined by our circumstances
as we have just read from Psalm 23:5. In the midst of
our enemies we can have the fresh oil poured upon us.
So if you’re going through a
difficult time in your life or if the enemy of our soul is
raging, do not let it deter you from receiving a fresh
anointing from the Lord. The enemy often lies to us that if we
were more spiritual we would not be going through what we are
going through or when you get victory in a certain area that
you struggle with, then you will be worthy enough to receive
If that were the case, why
did Jesus have to die for us? Jesus is the one who makes us
worthy to receive that fresh oil. As believers we are not to
walk in blatant sin. But many believers have come from
lifestyles that were filled with sin and there is a working
out of these things in the believer’s life: Titus 2:11,12;
Hebrews 13:21; Eph. 2:10; 2 Timothy 2:19-22; Philippians
Let us take a look at the
life of Esther and see what we can find out about the
anointing oil. Esther 2:12 “Now when every maid’s
turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had
been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for
so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit,
six months with the oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet
odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women:)”
As the bride of Christ, do
you think that God the Father just might purify us before the
marriage supper of the Lamb.? ( Rev. 19:7-9 ) The oil
of myrrh speaks to us of death or the crucifying of our flesh.
Mark 15:23 “And they give him to drink wine mingled
with myrrh: but he received it not.” John 19:39 “And
there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by
night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a
hundred pound weight.”
You might be wondering why
Jesus did not drink the wine mingled with the myrrh. Myrrh
throughout history has been used to relieve pain and remove
discomfort. Jesus could not have drank the myrrh because he
had to go through all the pain for the atonement of men. (Is.
Song of Solomon speaks of
myrrh being a comfort. In Jesus paying the full price for our
sins we can partake of the comforting and pain relieving
aspects of the anointing. When the fresh oil is poured upon us
there will be a comforting and a numbing to the things that we
have to crucify in our life. The anointing works those things
that are displeasing to the Lord in our life, out. Just as
Esther had those things that were in her flesh that would be
displeasing before the king.
Psalm 133:1 “Behold,
how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in
unity. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that
run down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard:…” We know
from other verses that ointment is the anointing oil that
Moses poured upon Aaron and his sons that stood in the
priest’s office and God has made us kings and priests to our
God. (Rev. 1:6; 1 Peter 2:5,9)
Walking in unity with our
brethren always precedes walking in the fresh oil. Our
brethren can be our spouse, the church we attend, those who we
work with in ministry and those of the Body of Christ. We as
believers can learn to agree about disagreeing. As a believer,
if you cannot be in agreement with the way something is being
done or the way someone believes, it is better not to be a
part of it than to be a point of disunity. We as believers
have to learn how give up the right of being right and learn
how to walk in unity.
Proverbs 13:10 “Only
by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is
wisdom.” It will take walking in humility to walk in
unity. Pride always has to be right. Are we as believers
willing to give up the pride of being right that we may walk
in that place of a Fresh Oil being poured out upon us?
"Father I ask that you
pour out that fresh oil upon all who have read this article.
Pour a fresh anointing upon them. Holy Spirit pour your
anointing upon them now. Let heaven’s oil come upon them.
Refresh, renew, revive them Lord. In the name of Jesus.
