Last night I went to bed to read a book, “A life ablaze” by Rick Renner, (which is an excellent book by the way.) I like to go to bed early most of the time to give myself about 1-2 hours to read and relax my mind before I go to sleep. It works. I like to light a candle afterwards so when I put the book down, I have that time to pray to God. Sometimes it’s long, sometimes it short but I absolutely love talking to my Abba (Daddy) in Heaven. I love it also when He softly calls my name, “Esther.” Most of the time He doesn’t say anything else. I am just glad to hear Him call my name. I’ll answer and say, “Yes Father. I love you.” I’ve heard him audibly before and His voice is the most beautiful voice that I’ve ever heard but I must tell you that it doesn’t happen much. The Holy Spirit speaks to my heart a LOT though. When I hear Him through my spiritual ears, (my heart,) I know exactly who it is. The devil speaks to our minds but halleluJah, God speaks to our hearts. It’s like the voice is coming from another dimension somewhere. If you haven’t experienced it yet, ask God and He definitely will speak to you. Ready your heart. Prepare yourself to receive.
I dreamed that I was at a gathering with a lot of nice people there. I almost ALWAYS dream of being at a gathering, a concert, a church, in a big city or some kind of huge restaurant for some reason. I am not sure why. Yesterday I dreamed that I was in a big city, asking people how to catch the train to Pittsburgh. I looked down the hill off of the platform but there were no stairs to take me to the station. I could see it but couldn’t get there. Anywhoooo, I was at this gathering and a man in a white suit who looked exactly like the red headed detective in CSI Miami, walked up to me smiling and handed me a glass container of oil. It was about 3/4ths filled but I could see the oil as plain as day. I felt a little leery about it though. For some reason my mind kept thinking that it was WD-40 or some kind of lubricant. He was very nice and kept smiling at me. Not scary but kindly, like he was sure that it would bless me and even ‘told’ me that it would bless me. He told me, (mentally projected his thoughts to me) that I should take a bath with this oil in it. The container was about the size of a pop can, maybe 10-12 ounces or so. I am wondering as I type this if maybe it was “the anointing of God” in that bottle? I believe that God is anointing me for some greater work. I’ll accept! Amen. I was going to take a bath with it but ended up doing something else first.
I remember leaving the building/apartment where the people were and began to walk down a set of cement stairs with rails on both sides of it. After I got to the bottom, another man in a white suit started walking down the stairs with a small vial of oil. He made me stop to give me the oil. He too was communicating with me without words but I knew exactly what he was saying because I was doing the same. We were having a “Star Trek” mental communication session I presume. As I walked up to the stairs, I reached for what he was handing me, with my right hand, (the Jesus side, freedom.) . As he handed it to me, I remember thinking to myself, “This looks like the Microchip!” It was a small vial. I am not sure if that is what it was but I remember thinking that it could ‘soak down into my wrist’ if I ‘put it on.’ While I was gazing at it, holding it up so that I could see it’s contents, he also handed me a white sheet of paper in my left hand, (legalism, law,) with my Directions or Orders on it. This smaller vial did have amber oil in it like the previous larger container handed to me did.
1st Samuel 10 tells us how the Prophet Samuel anointed Saul as King over Israel. Saul, we know was the hard-headed one who did what he wanted whenever he wanted instead of what the Prophet of the Lord told him to do and he lost his Kingdom. Hence, the small ‘vial’ anointing. 1Sa 9:27 And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass on before us, (and he passed on,) but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the word of God. 1Sa 10:1 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the LORD hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance? Here’s the disobedience part:
1Sa 15:9 But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.
1Sa 15:10 Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying,
1Sa 15:11 It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.
1Sa 15:12 And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.
1Sa 15:13 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.
1Sa 15:14 And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?
1Sa 15:15 And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.
1Sa 15:16 Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.
1Sa 15:17 And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?
1Sa 15:18 And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.
1Sa 15:19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?
1Sa 15:20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
1Sa 15:21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.
1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
1Sa 15:24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
BUT GOD! He sends a ram in the bush so when the intended plan is aborted the second will take it’s place as with Abraham and Isaac. God had a young shepherd in mind to be the King of Israel way before Saul began to act up horribly. That shepherd’s name is David. David got the larger anointing. The anointing with the, not ‘vial’ but, ‘horn.’ That’s much larger.
1Sa 16:1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
1Sa 16:2 And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.
1Sa 16:3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.
1Sa 16:4 And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?
1Sa 16:5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
1Sa 16:6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.
1Sa 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
1Sa 16:8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
1Sa 16:9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
1Sa 16:10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.
1Sa 16:11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
1Sa 16:12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
1Sa 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
And we all know that it was skinny, ruddy David who killed Israel’s rough enemy, Goliath. He took 5 smooth stones because Goliath had brothers. David was ready for them to come as well most likely. David was what?…….. he was prepared. We should be also. All that I had to do with the larger container of oil was bathe in it. Anoint myself like the ladies in the Book of Esther did for a year before they went into the King. There was no “catch” to it. But with the smaller ‘vial’ it had oil in it but had ‘strings attached’ so-to-speak. Plus, the first ‘man’ (angel) was familiar to me. The second had no name, no identity. Hmmmm, I think I just interpreted my own dream. I do that you know. I interpret dreams. If I can’t interpret one, I will tell the person the truth that I am not seeing the interpretation. I interpreter at times, I am not a genie or soothsayer.
And THAT was my oil/anointing dream. Now, to figure it out and apply it to my own life. God bless and thank you for reading. I appreciate your thoughts on the subject as well. Please don’t leave my Blog to self-help gurus, and people who want to ‘mentor’ me or ‘teach’ me for a small fee? Lol. I know that there has to be people out there who are kind, friendly and would love to chat back and forth or read one another’s blogs.
