At certain times of the year, great clouds of flies, mosquitos and other insects would attack the shepherd’s flocks. In addition, the sheep could be afflicted by lice and ticks. These insects would especially attack the heads of the sheep, burrowing into their ears and noses. The results could range from irritation to disease to even death.To protect the sheep, the shepherd would make a mixture of olive oil and anoint the head of the sheep, rubbing the oil into its wool and especially around its nose, eyes, and ears.
The fact that the shepherd anoints the head of the sheep to ward off mosquitoes and other bugs so they couldn’t get in to the ears and cause infection on the brain has a spiritual connection with us today!…
There are flies and other bugs that feed on the brains of the sheep, and when they enter into the sheep’s brain through its ears, they start to eat up its brain causing severe headache pains leading the sheep to starts running around looking for hard rocks, so that it may hit its head on the rocks to stop the pain.
As the sheep is violently hitting its head upon the rocks, the skull that protects the brain of the sheep breaks.
Nowadays there are many “Mosquitoes” that want to get in to our mind (Brains) with distractions, entertainment,media etc… It will cause us to be diverted, without focus and end up doing the things of the “Flesh”. The devil and it’s demons want us to be “infected” with the things of this world!… That will bring surely separation from God, lack of consecration and consequently sin.
Consequently one will have the headache of reaping the consequences of sin and at the end hitting his “head against the rock”, and break that protection, our communion with God.
Also the Oil would prevent irritation as the nostrils, eyes and mouth are a very sensitive area.
When we are anointed with the Oil of the Holy Spirit we are able to let go of little things that come to irritate us and takes out of the Spirit.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit inspire and guide our thoughts to God, so we can do His will. We will maintain the “Flies” and “Bugs” away and be healthy in our spiritual life, remain in faith and above all in Spirit.
That is why one needs this anointing above all things. The baptism with the Holy Spirit it is a must for all of us!..
