Let's talk about 
                                              "Anointing oil"   

    The one thing I encourage others to do is to use anointing oil, as does the bible, but I know 
some people are not familiar with the practice and is why I put some step by step procedures on
how we can use anointing oil for blessing ourselves, others and homes.

    Below is an excerpt from our writing Blessing a Home which can be found on the front page of 
this website.  Enjoy and GodBless.
    What do I use for anointing oil? What I would suggest using is a Extra Virgin, Cold Pressed,
Olive Oil (cold pressed is purer) which can be purchased at your local grocery store. A one quart,
or one liter bottle of oil doesn't cost much and will last for many months.  If you have never used 
anointing oil before I would encourage you to. When we are praying for the Lord's blessing and 
protection on our life, or our children, when blessing a home, praying for a healing or deliverance 
it is good to use anointing oil.

     Matthew 6:17 NIV  17 But when you fast, put oil on your head

    Mark 6:13 NIV 13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and
healed them.

    Hebrews 1:9 NIV 9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your
God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy."

    James 5:14 NIV 14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over
him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.

    How do I bless the oil for anointing purposes?  Upon bringing the oil home it needs to be
blessed. I know some people believe that a ordained minister of the Lord needs to bless the oil, but
in the same way that we have Christ's authority to bless our homes and other people we have that
same authority to bless anointing oil. If you prefer a minister, pastor, or anointed Christian friend to
bless the oil for you that is not a problem, but God does want each one of us to realize our 
potential in Christ and to walk in it.

    To bless the oil to be used for anointing oil is to proclaim it to be so. Holding the bottle you just
ask God to bless the oil by His Spirit in that whatever you bless with this oil will have you
administering the Father's power and blessing to it.
