Fresh Oil


 By Pastor David Romanoff

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 from God.

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 2:6,12,13.

Let us take a look at the life of Esther and see what we can find out about the anointing oil. Esther 2:12Now 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 19:39And 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. 53:3-12). 

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 133:1Behold, 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 13:10Only 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.  Amen"
