The Way of the Oil – דרך השמן
A word of encouragement for intercessors:
“I am so impressed with the inner strength that יהוה has placed in each of you. You are all overcomers who carry an abundance of oil in your lamps! And I hear יהוה calling each of us to begin imparting The Way of the Oil to others who have empty or partially filled lamps. We can’t give them our oil, but we can impart The Way of the Oil.
Thank You L-rd and teach us what exactly is The Way of the Oil!”
I was shown to search for the א and ת – the first and last – of these two words: דרך השמן – The Way of the Oil.
way, road, direction, journey, path, manner, a course of life, of moral character
א: Gen 3:24
So He drove the man out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the WAY to the tree of life.
ת: Mal 3:1
Behold, I am sending My messenger, and he will clear a WAY before Me. And the L-rd, whom you are seeking, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the L-rd of armies.
fat, oil, as a staple, medicine for healing, for anointing, the fat of fruitful land & valleys
א Gen 28:18
Jacob got up early in the morning, and took the stone that he’d placed as a support for his head, and set it up as a memorial stone, and poured oil on its top.
ת: Hag 2:12
If someone carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and touches bread with this fold, or touches cooked food, wine, oil or any other food, will it become holy?’” And the priests answered, “No.”
We can’t give away the oil that we’ve been given but we can show others The Way of the Oil. It’s all related to the anointing and the Tabernacle. As Reuven Berger proclaimed during the historic WTKOG – Welcome The King of Glory – conference, “We, the people of יהוה, are a moving, living Tabernacle.”
And I heard יהוה say, “Those who walk in The Way of the Oil are called to live, walk and breathe Haggai 2 from now until the end!”
When יהוה begins to shake the heavens and earth, the sea and dry land and all the nations, they will come with the wealth of all nations, and יהוה will fill this house with glory! The gold & silver belong to Him (His supernatural provision will come in the midst of desolation)
The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the L-rd of armies, ‘and in this place I will give peace (this is the fruit of The Way of the Oil)
Immediately after these verses, we see the timing:
On the twenty-fourth of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, King of Persia.
In the Second Year of Darius:
Ezr 4:24 – Then work on the house of G-d in Jerusalem was discontinued, and it was stopped until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
1. The enemies initially offered to help rebuild the T but were turned down
2. So they appealed to Persia’s Xerxes and got permission to stop the rebuilding by force.
3. Rebuilding resumed in Darius’ 2nd year.
4. The Jews rebuild with repentant hearts, citing Cyrus
5. Darius Found Cyrus’ Decree
6. Full cost was paid from the Persian treasury to the Jews to offer acceptable sacrifices to G-d of heaven – this is the true destiny of Persia – to stand with Israel!
7. Those who stand in the way will become a heap of ruins like AI.
8. They successfully rebuilt through the prophecy of Haggai and Zechariah
And I clearly heard, “The true destiny of the Persian people will rise up during this time.”
Hag 1:1 – In the second year of Darius the king, on the 1st day of the 6th month (ELUL = Aug 18, 2023 & Sept 4, 2024, the word of יהוה came by Haggai to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah & Joshua, high priest:
1. Build The House
2. Drought & famine on new🍷, grain, oil
3. The nation obeyed & revered יהוה
Hag 1:15 – on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month (ELUL = Sept 27, 2023 which was the final day of the PAJ, Prophetic Artists Journey) in the second year of Darius the king:
1. יהוה stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, the spirit of Joshua, the high priest, the spirit of all the remnant of the people
2. They began work on the house of יהוה of armies, their G-d.
Hag 2:1 in the twenty-first of the seventh month (Tishrei = Oct 6, 2023, the last day before the current war)
1. “Take courage; I am with you”
2. I will shake the heavens & earth, the sea & dry land.
3. I will shake all nations to bring their wealth
4. I will fill this house with glory!
5. The latter glory of this house will be greater & I will give peace.
Hag 2:10 – On the twenty-fourth of the ninth month (Kislev = Dec 7, 2023, first night of Hanukkah, which is all about the miracle of the oil!), in the second year of Darius, the word of יהוה came to Haggai:
1. From the 24th day of the ninth month (Kislev); from the day when the temple of יהוה was founded – from this day on I will bless you. (Dec 7, 2023)
2. Haggai 2:20 on the 24th day of the month: I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; & I will overthrow chariots, their riders, horses and their riders will go down, every one by the sword of another. On that day,’ declares יהוה, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares יהוה, ‘and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,’” declares יהוה.
Zec 1:1 – In the eighth month (Cheshvan) of the second year of Darius, the word of the L-rd came to Zechariah the prophet…
1. “Return to Me and I will return to you”
2. True repentance came
Zec 1:7 – On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, that is, the month Shevat (= February 3, 2024), in the second year of Darius, the word of the L-rd came to Zechariah the prophet:
1. The four horses appeared with a report, the ones whom יהוה sent to patrol the earth.
2. Adonai said He will return to Jerusalem with compassion; “My house will be built in it and a measuring line will be stretched over Jerusalem. I will again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem.”
3. Zechariah was given the vision of חרשים Charashim – artisans who are called to terrify, scatter & destroy Israel’s enemies.
This is the foundational Scripture, along with Exodus 25:40 for the PAJ. Thank You, Father for the anointing and restoration of the true Tabernacle and thank You for giving this confirmation of the date of the next PAJ, Prophetic Artists Journey on the 24th of Shevet!
