Sunday 23rd March 2014

Title - Oil of Gladness

Teacher:- Pastor Hope Orimolusi

Main Text:- Psalms 45:6-7

Bible Passages:- Proverbs 17:22, Nehemiah 8:10, Hebrews 1:9, 1 Samuel 16:1-3.

There are different types of oil. 
Each oil with various use and purpose.
For example, we have Diesel oil (which could be used for lubrication), vegetable oil (for cooking) and so on.
 However there is a one particular oil that is highly recognized by God. This is His anointing oil.
On Sunday the 23rd March, we were anointed with the oil of gladness 
The book of proverbs 17:22 makes us aware that the vision of the sorrowful is always blurred. It also states sorrow is not a good thing as it dries up the bones. 

The Significance of Gladness

1. Joy Refreshes Nehemiah 8:10
2. Joy attracts Favour
3. It gives clear vision
when sorrowful, one's vision is blurred hence such individual has no sense of direction.

Conditions to receive oil of gladness

Remember, for every good promise God has proposed in his heart for his children, there are conditions and instructions we ought to obey

1. Love righteousness and hate iniquity Heb 1:9
2. Let your heart be pure and blameless before God.
God searches the heart. If God sees your heart is full of iniquity and evil, there is a chance you will be rejected by God as seen in the book of 1Samuel 16:1-13
Once God rejected Saul, the Spirit of God departed from him and evil spirits tormented him.
God also anointed David King instead of Saul.

Brethren, let us come to God with a pure heart. Willing to accept Him in spirit and in truth.
May the oil of gladness never depart from us in Jesus Name
Have a blessed week ahead.

God bless :)
