You can imagine there is a story behind this assignment...
March is my birthday month. I remember praying for my word for my 49th year. I went to a conference March 3rd and all I kept hearing was obedience, whether it’s the speakers or someone sharing a story during dinner. I remember coming home thinking, I need to be more obedient. By nature I am hard headed in all things. 🙁
By now, I was 3 months into fasting and praying monthly which is something I never did in my life - fasting. Turn down food for what? I’m a foodie. So this month I was already used to God guiding me since January. He said, make anointing oil. I laughed like huh anointing oil I know nothing about anointing oil except that pastors use it in church. Funny thing about that, that month I started seeing videos of people that use anointing oil throughout their house. I thought that was cute but didn’t think anything more about it. This was March 18th at 11:10pm when that thought dropped me mind. At that moment I pulled out a note book and searched in the bible for verses mentioning anointing oil and also researched all the herbs used in the bible. I wrote all the info down and didn’t revisit it again.
The following weeks he started little by little stripping me of things I REALLY LOVED!!!!! It started with my anklets. I had 5 on the right leg and 3 on the left. Had them for yearsssss and never took them off. He told me to remove them. That hurt cause I really loved my leg jewelry so it took a few weeks to listen. Then it was the waistbeads, that took about 2 weeks to remove. Then it was the nose piercing. Mind you, it took over a year to finally heal. I was 2 months in on the healing and not walking around with a pimply nose piercing. Grrrrrr so yup you know it that took another week of not listening.
Sometime in April I was praying when I heard "cut the locs off." This is where I drew the line. That was a hard NO! It took 2 mths fighting with him until I said ok God I don’t want to be disobedient to the point I miss out on my blessings. He showed me that my locs where blocking him from downloading my instructions. This was revealed to me when a pastor laid hands on my head and the whole time I’m thinking the locs are blocking me. So on June 1st as I promised God, I cut them off.
I kept feeling led to do a full 3 day fast. No food, just water but I had to shut myself in. So I decided to lock myself in my condo for 3 days . Straight fasting, praying, reading the bible and watching videos to feed me spiritually the 3 days. On June 28th he spoke to me again about the oil during my fast. With snot running down my nose, I kept crying and saying ok, ok, ok I accept the assignment. I finished praying and felt led to read 1 Kings. It was 2 days I felt led to read it, mind you I really don’t know much about the bible and never read Kings. So me trying to play God I said, God if I am REALLY meant to make this oil, let me see something about anointing oil when I read this chapter. I was for sure it wouldn’t be in there. So I read 1 Kings chapter 1, get to verse 39 and BOOM “took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon.” I was shocked.
Now I had no choice but to make this oil. You already know through fasting and praying he led me to the formulation. It took me to read and study that chapter several times over the course of a few weeks from writing the formulation down to making the oil to be sure I am making it right. Even then I went back and forth with God like this recipe doesn’t make sense. As a formulator when you read the recipe it looks off and the ratio is too heavy in the spices but with his guidance and rereading it several times he showed me exactly how to make it correctly. I made the oil on 7/25/23.
Because this assignment is from him, every step of the way I am asking him for his guidance. Before the August fast started during the night the date 8.8.23 came to mind for releasing this oil. Not only that it’s to be released to my email subscribers only for now.
May this oil bless you abundantly.
