I believe we're in a season of pressing into the place of intimacy, and a season of refining. The Father is cutting things off from us, that can't go into the next season. He's desiring to refine His prophetic voices, because many are prophesying out of contaminated filters. Some have run out of oil, and are prophesying on fumes. There are others who have allowed fillers to "bulk" up their oil, but that oil will no longer carry the potency it once had.
Many is this hour are jumping on the prophetic bandwagon claiming to be a prophetic voice, when they have not submitted themselves to process of refining. We are getting hoodwinked by charisma, instead of testing the spirit. 1 John 4:1 tells us, "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world." We must be discerning in this hour to who carries the true oil and anointing of the Lord, the essential oil.
When you have a true calling on your life, there will be a high cost for the oil you desire to carry. Many are trying to walk in an office or calling they haven't paid the price for, to obtain the oil it requires. The potency in your oil comes for your willingness to go through the fire, being hurt, wounded, lied on, betrayed, losing close relationships, etc. To be a true prophetic and apostolic voice in this hour, you must carry the essential oil. Those who carry the essential oil, carry transformation in their mouths, and have obtained an anointing that destroys yolks (Isa 10:27).
The essential oil is extracted from the pressure the Lord allows to come into your life. To extract means to remove or take out, especially by force, a substance in a concentrated form (google.com). When something is in a concentrated form, it's been extracted at its most intense point, so it's not watered down in any way. It's important to make note here, that it matters what you're connected to. When the pressure comes to extract the oil, what is your oil connected to? We cannot produce the essential oil needed
to walk in our callings and mantles, if we're not connected to the Father. If you're not connected to the Father where is your oil coming from? John 15:4 says, "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me." You cannot produce the essential oil outside of being connected to the Father. Any oil that's not the essential oil, is a counterfeit oil that will leave people feeling greasy and still bound.
When someone carries the essential oil, the oil will speak for itself. The essential oil is not something you can manufacture on your own, buy, or add to. If you want the essential oil in your life, allow the Lord to process and refine you. The process enables the Lord to extract the pure and concentrated form of oil,to pour over your life that will empower you to walk and function in your calling and mantle. Don't settle for nothing less than the essential oil.
