Faith, Love, Prayer, and Oils

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also, and greater works than these he will do because I go to the Father” (John 14:12)

In all fairness I can understand today’s world of skepticism. We are bombarded daily by commercials by television, radio, online ads, junk mail, spam mail, billboards, and even on our clothing. It’s hard anymore to filter out what is true, verses what is not. It takes focus and concentration and really who has time for that anymore? Hopefully you will take some time and do focus and concentrate on how beneficial Essential Oils can be.

The fact is the fall of man (Genesis 3) brought illness that has continuously affected mankind since then. If you ever wondered why there is disease and death in our world, this is why.

While we are not God, the Bible instructs us to “be imitators of God” and to live in love. Through proper prayer we can enhance our prayers by applying aromatic oils.

Gods healing incense of essential oils (Exodus 30:34-36) was provided to Moses to stop a plague (Numbers 16:46-50) Leviticus 14 discusses yet another blend of oils (Hyssop and Cedarwood) that God provided to Moses for a variety of healing applications.

Jesus gives us specific instructions on the kind of prayer that is effective and gets results as well as insight on why some forms of prayer are not effective.

When we pray for healing, God’s answer is usually not by way of an instant miracle, but usually it takes time. Either hours, days, weeks, or even months.

The disciples healing ministries gradual healing (not miracles) was what happened most of the time. This makes it MUCH easier to engage in a healing ministry because God does not expect us to perform miracles, but only to be a vessel for them no matter how long it takes. We can do that!!

Three words for healing in the New Testament: Iaomai – “instant miraculous healing” (Used 30x)
Sozo – “deliverance or salvation” (Used 3x) Therapedo – “gradual healing with menial service or care” (Used 40x)

Now doesn’t that bring some light on things!!! You talk about an AH HA moment!

God wants us to be well. Gratitude is the channel through which God’s healing grace most easily flows. God is love. The power that heals is none other than Love itself.

Some things are easily proven to not be a fact, and some things are not. Some things do take a dash of faith, and some things are clearly not so.

We see this in the Bible also. Thomas doubted that Jesus rose from the dead. Makes sense to me, after all no one raises from the dead, right? Thomas said “Unless I see him with my own eyes and put my finger in the holes in his hand and side, I won’t believe it.” Well we know what happened. Jesus did appear and he did have Thomas touch the holes in him and Thomas exclaimed “My Lord and my God!” What did Jesus say to this? “Thomas you believe because you see, blessed are those that believe but see not.”

I think this sums up what faith is. Believing even before you see.
