The Spirit of the LORD came powerfully…

There is something powerful about being anointed with oil.

It is one of those elements, along with water, that opens the portals of heaven and allows the Holy Spirit an open door to “move in.”

When we make a decision to become followers of Christ, I believe we all receive a spirit of grace and holiness – the receiving of the Spirit through anointing adds a spirit of prophecy, wisdom – in both civil and sacred things, fortitude and valour.

Matthew McDonald shares some good points on oil that I do not need to repeat –
