- “You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over” (Ps. 23:5).
- “Despise not prophesying” (1 Thess. 5:20).
- “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38).
Get Anointed with His Anointing Oil!
I visited family in Alberta this week, but on Sunday had the chance to be at Joseph’s Storehouse Church (Apostles Alex and Rosetta Florence). It was an amazing time. In many ways, the style of the service is prototypical—very informal and “unpredictable.” The Lord did wonderful things. One of those was about “anointing.”
For some time now, Pastor Edith has been experiencing a phenomenon of oil appearing on her hands. During the service, I walked over to her and asked if she had “oil on her hands today?” She said yes, and I then had her lay hands on my hands. I could easily feel the oil. Later that morning, there was impartation of that anointing oil to all.
Then I prophesied, “There has been a season where the anointing has not been properly valued. But now that is changing and people will seek after and will properly desire my anointing … The new anointing oil will cause hinges that have been “frozen” shut to begin to swing. Doors that should open will open. Doors that need to be shut will now be swung shut.”
I believe we will learn much about anointing in the coming days. I also feel this is linked to the Lord raising up His people to perform signs and wonders and healings and miracles wherever they go.
I am looking forward to being in Montreal for the Canada Gathering. The Lord has shown us that Montreal is really the “womb” of Canada. We are excited about what God wants to birth for Canada during those days.
Thanks for praying.
