Ensure your lamps are full of oil

Word: There is a jar of oil with your name on it!
(the message of new oil and keeping lamps full has been given twice at Malham Centre - by two different people at different times)

The word relates to a dream from July 2008 and it is a call to ensure that our lamps are full of oil. We are to be proactive about filling our lamps so that they can be lit by the fire of Holy Spirit. It is time to seek the Lord and as we pray and seek Him, there is a store of oil that has been prepared for individual anointing and we now have access to it. 
Matthew 25: 1 to 13 (The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins)

The dream came at the tail end of nearly 8 weeks of a call to pray - the oil that will be poured out is a fresh revelation of Christ. The perfume of Christ will increase until the place of worship is filled with His presence and the vessels that are prepared will receive their own individual perfume - this will be the anointing that is to be carried onto the "streets" - i.e. out of the church. Perfume can only become oil once it’s been pressed and steamed - it also means the death of the source plant. “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”. Php 1:21


July 2008 dream: I was taken around a perfume factory - at one point I moved into a cellar where all the base oils are kept - I could not see the person leading me around this area but it knew it was Jesus. He asked me to smell each base oil and asked me what I thought about which oils should be mixed together to produce a new perfume. I had such fun testing all the oils and chatting away with Him (I had this feeling of being extremely privileged to be see this place and to be part of what was being decided on - but the overriding feeling was sheer joy - almost like a child in a sweet factory) - every pore in the place was ladened with perfume (and not the choking cheap kind).  

After "playing" with the base oils I was led into an area that was all white marble and glass with long white chiffon drapes between columns - along the walls were glass shelves and on them were arrays of new bottles (all shapes and sizes) all ready, waiting for the new perfume to be poured into them. The man who had been with me in the base oil area was still with me in this room and he seemed to get immense pleasure at seeing my happiness. I sensed that he was the "boss" and that the perfume being prepared was something very new and fresh. I had an overwhelming sense of "surprise"
