The Bible Flowing with Oil... Miracles are Decreasing?

In the Bible, when God speaks, He always sends signs and miracles to confirm that what is happening is from Him. When the Lord came and walked among us, many people got so caught up in the fact that everyone was getting healed that they failed to realize what God was doing: He was setting up His Kingdom on Earth. 

We are in danger of making the same mistake right now with the miraculous sign happening in a small town in Georgia. There is a Bible that has oil flowing from it in seemingly endless quantities. This oil has been used in prayers of faith, and miracles have been reported and confirmed with documentation! I have verified this as a miraculous sign which I spoke of in another post: CLICK HERE to read that post.

I am ashamed to say it, but I was so caught up in the fact that people were being healed in connection with this miraculous sign, that I almost missed the point of what was happening. I completely forgot that God had told the small prayer group in Dalton that after Trump was in office, “He would send a sign to show what was to come.” The sign isn’t the important thing: what it means is VITAL! 

Like the first disciples of Jesus, who recognized that He was God's Son, but failed to see His purpose, I only recognized what was on the surface: God would pour out His anointing in the coming wave of Glory that so many have seen coming. There were a couple of important facts that came with this part of the revelation:
  1. The oil would continue to flow and even increase to meet the need as long as they didn’t charge for it.
  2. They were to do no marketing or advertising.
At first, I thought that was all that God was saying with this miracle, but the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let me rest. A few things bothered me:
  1. The oil no longer had gold flecks in it as it was reported to have when the miracle first appeared.
  2. There was no smell associated with the oil any longer.
  3. The Lord confirmed the miracle in the prayer room, not when the oil was on my hands. 
These things nagged at me. I knew there was something was I was missing.  I consulted with a friend, Lydia about it. She has a very keen sense of discernment, Lydia can tell when objects are anointed for good or evil. 

Lydia said, “I haven’t been able to sense anything on the oil. It hasn’t multiplied or doesn’t hold an anointing that I can discern. When I held it, it seemed like oil that should be used in a lamp.”

When we get together and talk, the Holy Spirit begins to move, our conversations take on a life of their own. Quickly we came to the parable of the 10 virgins. That night, the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let me sleep, He kept revealing layers and connections concerning this parable and the miracle of the Bible flowing with oil. 

This is why we are not to forsake the fellowship: we need each other! Lydia provided the spark that lit the fire of the Holy Spirit. Each piece of this parable applies to this miracle so let me take you through this step by step:

Matthew 25:1-12 

Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 
The Greek word, mōros translated “foolish” means without learning or enlightenment and not showing care for the consequences. These are members of the Bride (worldwide Christians) but ones that are not learning God’s ways or thinking about consequences of their actions. 
Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
The word used for “oil” is the same word used for the oil to anoint and the oil used to heal the sick. This is what  God is saying: the time is coming when He will pour out His glory (anointing) through Jesus (Jesus is the Word - the Bible)!
But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
Notice that they all have the oil, the anointing of God and all got sleepy. The Body of Christ has long been asleep. 
“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 
This sign is the “cry,” the shout to awaken us. The oil began flowing in 2017 and in God’s goodness He pointed this out in the Heavens as well. Here was the connecting sign missed by many: 

In 2017, there was what many called an, “American Solar Eclipse.” It is a solar eclipse that stretches from one side of the country to the other and touches no other country. This is significant because America is the only country founded for Jesus, so that people could worship Him as they chose to. It is His land like Israel is God’s land of His People. Many of the revelations about God originate in the USA. This eclipse was a sign of a revelation from America connected to the Awakening. I wrote a post about this eclipse and the meaning last year (CLICK HERE). 

The eclipse took place on the final day of the Feast of Trumpets. I didn’t realize it until I began writing this post, but I arrived in Dalton, thanks to flight delays, on the first day of this Feast and God has revealed the meaning of the oil when I am to be delivering His messages on the last day of this feast. This connection is vitally important and I will go into that in my next post.
Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 
All the body will know that the time is at hand. They will begin preparing for His return. Before the oil was placed in the lamps, they had to prepare the vessel. We see this elsewhere in scripture. God wants us to prepare a place for Him:
 “Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.” Exodus 25:8
This is what the Awakening is about: being prepared for the oil. The courts of Heaven is an important part of that preparation, I will go into that in the next post as well.
And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 
When the shout comes, the Bride needs to be getting ready for the return of Jesus. We need to examine what we know about God. In His mercy, He gave that prayer group a hint of where we missed it: We are not to charge with things associated with His anointing. 

There is an exchange happening. Up until this point, all had oil. But now, only the wise would have oil, those who will learn and be corrected by Him. 

The group was told that the anointing would stop flowing if they charged for   things of God. According to the principles of Matthew 10, all that God gives should be given without charge. CLICK HERE to see that the second half of that message is just as important. It shows what should be done by those who receive something from God for free.  
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 
“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’
If those who are charging for the things of God don’t straighten up and get ready now, the anointing will stop flowing and they will miss the Lord when He returns. (CLICK HERE to read about Satan's Plans for God's Generals). Lauren Sandford confirmed this on Sid Roth. He said that there was an exchange coming: God was raising up a new generation of prophets and the fathers' of our faith would retire or be removed. If they would receive correction, then they may endure. Jesus spoke about these ministers:  
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out demons? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. 
“You that work iniquity” is a phrase that commonly meant, “You who are unschooled in the Torah (first 5 books of the Bible).” So if we are unlearned in the ways of God, we are in danger of being cast out of the presence of the Lord. More is written about that in “Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven.”
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
Jesus is saying that all of this is about His second coming. His audience at the time had no knowledge of the “catching away:” That was revealed by Paul in the first letter he wrote to the Thessalonians where he mentioned it in every chapter. This audience only knew that He would come to rule and reign forever. This is the event that we do not know the day or the hour of.

This means that the coming Outpouring will not stop until the Lord returns for His bride! Many have said that this is the “final” massive Outpouring. The sign of the Bible flowing with oil confirms this and so much more! 

Why did the Oil Change?

Jewish rabbis know that gold appearing heralds the coming of Jesus. The presence of God often comes with a fragrance. So why did these things disappear from the oil? Because they were missing the point of the sign! Some people began making an idol out of the oil… seeking it instead of God. True to His word, the oil has continued to flow, but the power connected to is has eased. 

What Should We Do?

Perhaps a better question is what should we NOT do. This is not a time to panic and run around saying: THE END IS COMING! JESUS IS COMING BACK! When has that ever worked? All it does is make us look like crazy fools. 

This is not about others, it is our US, our relationship with God. We must awake and prepare. God is seen through us, through our actions and our lives, not by words. As you get yourself ready for what is coming, others will notice and be drawn to you because of the change in YOU. There is nothing more enticing than someone who is walking in LOVE and KINDNESS, PEACE and PATIENCE. As you grow deeper in the things of God and the things fo the enemy are removed, this will impact those around you!

What does the Feast of Trumpets have to do with all this? The answer may surprise you. That will be my next post.

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.
