Welcome to the Journey

It Is Finished!

Years of praying, months of planning, weeks of preparation, fifteen days of actual production, and by the grace of God we now have Holy Oil as per God’s instructions in Exodus 30! I only wish you could smell it, the smell of this oil is beyond explanation it is what I would imagine peace would smell like if it had a scent. The smell of this oil gives one a warm sense of security and comfort while at the same time a feeling like you want to consume it, this oil smells delicious. I have never smelled anything like it in my life! My olfactory senses are fantastic, and I thing that is because I am colored blind, therefore, I cannot describe the color of this oil, although my daughters say it looks like iridescent gold.

I am so excited about how this all has turned out so far, and yet I have some concerns on the proper way of asking for the Lord’s anointing on this oil. Knowing how this journey has been led by the Blessed Holy Spirit, and seeing the end result assures me that the Lord will provide me with the precise spiritual procedures for the blessing of this oil. It is because of the obvious presence of the Blessed Holy Spirit in this project and the tremendous results that make me feel so unworthy to be the one to ask for God Blessing on this oil. In every detail the Lord has guided me through with whispers and examples. I would either get an idea followed up with research for confirmation or I would come across information that the Lord would confirm through His Word. It was simply magnificent and such a growing experience!

Not surprisingly, Holy Oil has a natural healing quality with antibacterial and analgesic properties. Hey, let’s face it, God created this world intertwined with laws and tactics that if followed properly will result in a better life. Human beings have just not been paying attention.

This pic does not do justice, but it is the best I could do. It is slightly more than a half gallon.

OtR Update

Maceration has taken place with each ingredient and it is time to add the oil and boil. If all goes well we will have our first batch of true Holy Oil this week. The closer we get to the final objective the more excited we get. However, we have also seen an increase in trials and difficulties in our lives since we began this mission for God.

I have never been one to blame the devil for my mistakes or disobedience, although I realize that there are evil spirits in this world that try to keep us from total focus on God. So it has not been that surprising to see this increase in difficulties while we attempt to set out on our mission for God. We can see that same thing occur to our Messiah just before He set out on His Mission for God (Matthew 4:1-11). However, throughout the entire process it has been wonderful to see the Blessed Holy Spirit assisting in the project in a number of ways including, leading me to vital information and giving me cooking times.

For those of you that are not familiar with Holy Oil we thought we would provide some Biblical background. To start off with we should go to the original instruction of God to make Holy Oil (Exodus 30:23-25). Further on in that chapter one can see specific instructions and caveats of the oil’s use; the most important one is found in verse 32 which states: “It shall not be poured out on anyone’s body, nor shall you make like it, in the same proportions; it is holy, it shall be holy to you.”-NASB. This verse shows the degree of importance that should be given to Holy Oil. It is to be used only for the Temple and all things associated with the Temple including and especially the Temple priests (Exodus 30:30).  It shall not be duplicated for any other reason except the Temple, and should be handled appropriately.

As you know, today those who follow God are all priests of God (1Peter 2:9) and the Temple is each and every one of us ( 1Corinthians 3:16). Therefore, it is very likely that when the Bible records the use of Holy Oil by the First Century Believers (Mark 6:13) it is describing the use of true Holy Oil made with the instructions in Exodus. This is our belief here at Cepher, and the reason we are putting so much time, finances, and effort, into making the exact Holy Oil as God intended.

You may ask why King Y’shua Messiah never said anything about how important the Holy Oil was. He did, remember that King Y’shua Messiah is The Word, and in the Word is the scriptures about Holy Oil. As the Word King Y’shua Messiah is everything that is in the Word of God. That is why He asks us to get to know Him because King Y’shua Messiah can be found in the Bible simply by reading it. There are no tests, no memorization, no preliminary requirements, just read the Word of God.

In the Word of God you will find instruction on the making of Holy Oil. So many people today simply ask God to bless olive oil because it is easier to do than be obedient to God. It is this lifestyle of disobedience and laziness that has brought the USA to where it is today, and that is why this ministry of Oil of the Rock is being developed to challenge that lifestyle.

Oil of the Rock

For most of us life is becoming a bit more restricted from an economic side, an ecological side, and a spiritual side, and yet as we reduce our footprint on this planet not only are we learning to live a better life on a global scale, we are also learning how to live a more disciplined life especially on a spiritual scale. Here at Cepher we believe this is all within the design God configured to try to bring His people around.

Generation after generation in society after society humans have lived as if there was no tomorrow. This behavior has caused nothing but damage and destruction; now our grand children will have to find away of survival without all the things we destroyed.  It would not be surprising that God’s return is indirectly dependent on His people’s understanding of the sanctity of life–all life.

After all, the Bible explains that God will not lose a single child (John 6:39), and His return is predicated on all His people coming around to the Truth (2Peter 3:9). This is the whole concept behind Oil of the Rock Ministry, we believe that a true follower of God is one who appreciates God’s Creation, and learns to live with it, not against it. We must become good stewards of all that God has created. We must become more aware of how our lives affect others and everything.

With Oil of the Rock we hope to show the beauty in the simplest of God’s Creation while at the same time bring in the sanctity of God’s Word through the proper use of true Holy Oil. We hope that through the beauty of God’s Creation people will begin to realize the spiritual obligation followers of God have on this earth to make the smallest of footprints while we walk with our King on this earth He made for us.

It does not take much to see the necessity in good stewardship of this earth, one need only to consider the implications of your child immediately destroying a very special gift you gave him/her. This is a gift that took you months of what limited free time you had to make with the sole purpose that your child will get years and maybe decades of real enjoyment from. Do you think that you would feel like building another for your child? How about building one that is ten times as wonderful as the first?

Oil

Mark 6:13

“And they were casting out many demons and were anointing with oil many sick people and healing them.” –NASB

This is one of many scriptures informing/instructing followers of the benefits of Holy Oil. The instructions for the Holy Oil are like the instructions for everything else in the Bible–they are there for our benefit, but only if we are obedient to the Word of God–by applying the instructions to our lives. It is that obedience to the Word of God that is the most important thing for all followers to learn. It is through obedience that we learn to Trust our Creator, it is through that Trust that we learn total dependence on God, and it is through that dependence that we learn just how truly remarkable God’s Agape Love really is.

This dependence on God will be the deciding factor of survival as it has been for millennia. Throughout time we see where those who followed God completely have always managed to persevere through the toughest of times. Times are about to get considerably tough, maybe about as tough as they have been in decades . It does not take a prophet to see what is coming on the horizon. There are some very dark clouds on that horizon, and I am not referring to famine, drought, war, disease, climate change or population overload, which are already prevalent in various parts of the world today as they have been for thousands of years . The clouds on the horizon that I am making note of are filled with anger, hatred, selfishness, laziness, divisiveness, and an inability to see the trouble ahead. These are clouds that cannot be stopped with anything other than a “Spiritual Awakening” much like the one the First Century Believers experienced after the Ascension of King Y’shua Messiah.

For that Awakening to occur we need to look back to the time of the First Century Believer just before King Y’shua Messiah left the earth. First, we must remember what the expectations of the First Century Believers were concerning the coming of the Messiah. For most, they thought that God was sending them an army general who would decimate, by the sword, everyone who would not follow God. Unfortunately, since it obviously did not occur then, many people today believe that it will occur within our lifetime. What did happen at the time just prior to the “Ascension” was the passing on of the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17), the Blessed Holy Spirit to all those who were true followers of God (Acts 2). The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God which can only be truly understood by the help of the Blessed Holy Spirit.

Before the Blessed Holy Spirit could be passed on to all the followers, directions had to first be followed by the followers. Those directions were given by King Y’shua Messiah, and had to be followed to the letter in order for the followers to be in the right place at the right time. Because without the Blessed Holy Spirit the followers would have had no chance to survive what was about to occur. All the way back to the beginning we can see this basic truth–God’s blessings require our obedience. From the Garden of Eden, and Noah’s Ark, to the gift of the Blessed Holy Spirit, God’s blessings were interwoven with our obedience.

Oil Of Life

For some time now James 5:14 has been tickling my ear as has Exodus 30:22-25. For many that just means go to the nearest Bible store and purchase a twelve dollar bottle of Holy Oil. As you may have realized by now we here at Cepher have an allergy to Lemmings, and we oppose “monkey see – monkey do”. So we did a little research to determine the closest recipe to true Biblical Holy Oil and discovered that with today’s prices of the original “official” ingredients at the true proportions required, it is very unlikely that the oil people are buying at the Bible stores are being made with the true designated ingredients (even at wholesale/bulk prices).

Like everything here at Cepher we ask ourselves why God required a specific substance at a specific amount to make the Holy Oil. What we discovered was that every item in the recipe for Holy Oil had some degree of medicinal purpose. However, we believe that the number one reason to use Holy Oil made to Biblical specifications is obedience! It is through that obedience that you gain the benefits.

We are praying and considering making Holy Oil to the exact specification of Exodus 30:22-25 (to the best of our abilities by the Grace of the Blessed Holy Spirit), and we will keep you updated on our progress.
