Song of Solomon 1:3 Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.
Friends, my heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psalm 45:1). I have a message from God unto thee (Judges 3:20). The entrance of God’s words brings light and understanding unto the simple. Lord, let there be illumination. Lord, let this message find a landing place in the hearts of those you intend it to reach and let it bear a hundredfold fruit in the MIGHTY name of Yeshua.
God is the Ointment Poured Forth. He is the Balm in Gilead. Someone who is a spiritual father to MANY once said “I may pour oil on you but if your head is not right, it will not flow…” WOW, friends!!! That statement is “LOADED” and I will attempt to dissect it as it has been in my spirit lately. There are four categories of people:
1. Those whom man has poured oil on but GOD hasn’t
2. Those whom both man and God have NOT poured oil on
3. Those whom man has NOT poured oil on, but God has
4. Those whom BOTH man AND God have poured oil on
I hope that’s not too confusing. I haven’t landed quite yet. Those in the first category whom man has poured oil on but God hasn’t are like a “work-in- progress”. Man may have poured oil on them because of their commitment and their length of service. It is my prayer that God who has begun a good work in these folks will complete it in the mighty name of Jesus.
Those in the second category, whom both man and God have not poured oil on, are babes and the young shall grow in the mighty name of Jesus.
Those in the third category are the ones whom man has not found worthy of oil but God has. They are known by their fruits. These people are constantly being asked secularly for their titles though they don’t have any. The question here is this: Why has man not found them worthy of oil if God has? Great mystery indeed!!!
This reminds me of David’s father (Jesse) who presented all his favorite sons to prophet Samuel for anointing but God rejected them one after the other. David was not considered as a likely candidate by his own father. It was God who sought him out from the bushes where he was faithful in tending to the sheep. You will be sought out in the mighty name of Jesus.
My two cents on this matter is this: If God has asked man to pour oil on a person and man does not because that person has not met man’s standards, then man is similar to King Saul who did not obey God completely when God commanded him to destroy all the Amalekites and he decided to spare Agag the king of the Amalekites.
The bible tells us that for as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are called the sons of God (Rom. 8:14). But if indeed God has not asked man to pour oil on a person in this category, then perhaps God is using them to show that He uses the foolish things to confound the wise.
Finally, those in the fourth category are those whom both man and God have poured oil on. These folks are dynamos and have the titles to go with the great works they do for God. I pray for these ones that God will take them from strength to strength and from glory to glory in the MIGHTY name of Yeshua.
I pray for you in the name of Jesus that your oil will NEVER run dry! The barrel will not fail! You shall burst out with new wine! You will be as a well watered garden whose waters do not fail.
