We have learned more about Anointing Oil, and the power and the true meaning of Holy Communion from the past few posts. Now I want to talk about the effects and application of both the Oil (Anointing Oil) and the Wine (Blood of Jesus; His sacrifice at the cross).
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
As requested, I’m going to talk more about Jesus’ sacrifice (His Flesh and Blood) and also about the Power he gave to us.
For you information, a denarius is a man’s pay for one whole day. A quart of wheat is a man’s one time meal. Barley has a much lower quality than wheat. So, this verse means that a man’s one time meal is worth that man’s pay for one day. Basically speaking, the man can only eat once a day. This represents the nowadays condition, where crisis and economic recession is everywhere!
But, God give us the solution. It is written, “and do not harm the oil and the wine”. So, for those who are anointed with His Holy Oil and the Holy Spirit came upon them, and also for those who receive His Flesh and His Blood, we will not be harmed at the End of the Age. Remember and refresh your mind with this:
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
But the olive tree said to them, ‘ Should I cease giving my oil, With which they honor God and men, And go to sway over trees?’
These verses are truly beautiful. God gives us the solution in which we can survive the tests he has prepared for this world. By receiving His Flesh and Blood, we live in Jesus and Jesus lives in us; His Word lives in us. And He said ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you! Then with Anointing Oil, we are honoring God, we are pleasing God, and God will be glorified; since Anointing Oil also honoring men, men are honored to be the salt and light of the world. So that the whole world may see Christ in us, see the prove from God, and repent.
Christ lives in us, and we live in Him. We are His ambassadors on this earth, and God, with His Anointment of Holy Spirit, will give the world prove of His chosen people; that is, for those who receive His Oil (Anointment of Power and Holy Spirit) and Wine (Blood of Jesus, His sacrifice at the cross). And to give all the world prove about God’s chosen people and that Jesus is the God Almighty, we won’t be harmed by all those sicknesses, illnesses, recession, and also the devil. This is the Truth from the Bible!
Christ is the main vine and we are the branches. Whoever lives in Him will be fruitful, and whoever lives outside Him will not be fruitful and be thrown away because outside him we can’t do anything (reference John 15:5-6)
So, to live in Him, we need to receive His Flesh and Blood. To be the salt and light of this world, to be the ambassador of Heaven, and to give the world prove that Lord Jesus is very cool and great and powerful, we need His Power and Anointment of Holy Spirit. Be refreshed 🙂
