IV. THE OVERFLOWING CUP
My brother! My faithful friend! In one way or another, we have all been deceived by the wind of different human doctrines. In one way or another, we have all been captives of the human deceit. We have been standing in the meeting and we have been looking at the graduated preacher behind the pulpit, who, a half hour later, has already dried up and does not know what to tell. Then, looking with helplessness, he has hurried to announce that it is time for praise and testimonies…
Such man has not had God’s anointing! What is more – he has never understood that, if God’s Power and might are limitless, then, the very Anointing in the heart would testify to this Power and Might!
However, how might those people, who turned the Holy Spirit into theology, have God’s Holy Oil? How might those people, who have not denied themselves, but preach at the pulpit for the sake of a loathsome salary, have God’s Holy Oil? How might teachers of the law and Pharisees, whose pride and haughtiness is abomination in God’s eyes and God Himself gives them over to desolation, have God’s Holy Oil? Finally, if most people have not understood that Jesus is the Shepherd of God’s Flock, and they have to be doors, through which the Shepherd might come in and feed His sheep, how might such people have God’s Holy Oil?
I know inside my heart that the Word of this prophetic book will not turn back empty, but will do the Will of That One, Who has inspired it. Despite the whole fury and malice of all my persecutors, Lord will rebuild the fallen tabernacle of David. For, He has His Own hidden anointed men. If you have not seen them yet, it is due to the fact that nobody of those, who belong to Jesus Christ, craves for a pulpit or payment. They are very humble and quiet; however, there is a Fire inside their hearts, which Jesus will kindle, so that they will shine in the right time.
I believe that you will never more forget the visions, related to God’s Holy Anointment. Being persistent in prayer and communication with God’s children, you will surely see in them the Myrrh and Cinnamon, as well as the Cane, Cassia and Olive. However, your astonishment with Jesus will not be complete unless I tell you about the last vision, which He showed in front of my eyes. It was the vision with the cup, overflowing with Lord’s Anointment. Here are the words, by which Jesus appeared me the vision itself. He told me:
“Now, I will show before your heart that vision, which appears as a Perfect longing by God’s Heart. My Father holds dear all His children. He expects for your prayers to move His Heavenly jealousy, so that the last David might appear on the earth – that shepherd according to God’s Heart, who will give his life for God’s Flock. Therefore, look at everything I show you now…”
After these words of Jesus, the vision itself appeared in front of my heart. I could see David, as real as he was at God’s Fireplace in Ariel. He was standing in front of God’s Flock with a harp in his hands. So, he went in God’s pathways, in other to lead the Flock onto God’s hills. As soon as David went ahead of the sheep, they followed him. Then, David passed his fingers across the harp and sang the song of his psalm:
“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake…” (Psalm 23:1-3)
The song was flowing out of David’s lips. Then, something excellent happened. The Heaven opened over the head of David and two Heavenly hands, which were holding a gold horn, full of Holy Oil, began to pour God’s Anointment into the heart of David. In this moment, God’s praise man grew his song louder and God of Heaven kept pouring His Holy Oil into his heart. Finally, the cup of David overflowed. The Holy Oil began to stream down and fall in his feet. Every step, which David was doing in his way to the Lord’s hills, was marked by the drops of his overflowing cup. Noticed the sign over David’s heart; God’s Flock hurried to follow in the anointed steps of its leader. When the sheep were treading into the steps of David, their hooves were also being anointed by the Holy Oil of Father. And the cup of David was flowing over and over. The drops of the Holy Oil fell in his feet and marked his steps. In this moment, looking at this most splendid appearance of God’s Blessing, I already knew inside my heart – this is exactly the Shepherd according to God’s Heart and this is the Lord’s Flock that listens to the Voice of the Lord. While I was looking at the view, fascinated by it and filled with joy and reverence, Jesus approached me, asking:
“Do you like everything you see? Did your heart rejoice at this view?”
“Oh, my Lord! I would lay the whole my life, in order to see this miracle as Spirit and Life over the whole Your Church! Here, the cup of David is overflowing. The drops of God’s Holy Oil anoint the very steps of David, so that the sheep know where they have to tread. By treading in the anointed steps, they themselves get anointed, too…”
“Then, look at the more splendid miracle in this vision! Davis is walking ahead of God’s Flock, but behind the Flock, he has some very faithful helpers…”
While Jesus was talking to me, I really saw the Heavenly miracle. The hands of Father, after they had poured the horn with the Holy Oil into the heart of David, had gone back, behind the Flock. The one hand of Father was standing at the right of the Flock, and the other – at the left. The more David was going further, the more Father was pushing up the Flock by His Holy hands at its very end. This fact rejoiced me very much, so that I asked Jesus with great excitement:
“My Lord! What is Father doing by His hands? What is the role of the Father’s hands here?”
“Father is faithful to fulfill the psalm of David; since, before having welled out of David’s bosom, this psalm has already been born in the Heart of Father. David tells in his psalm:
“Surely goodness and love (mercy – KIJV) will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever…” (Psalm 23:6)
Here, Stefan! Goodness and Mercy are the two hands of Father! They are the appearance of His Eternal and Holy Spirit – the Spirit Who walks after God’s Flock in order to keep and protect it and to be its faithful guard…”
“Well, Jesus, how shall I understand this perfect benevolence over David? How shall I understand the fact that Father Himself has engaged in watching by His hand over the Flock of David, so that Goodness and Mercy might follow it?”
Jesus looked at me with very deep regard. In His light pupils, I could see that He had always been longing for me to ask Him this question. Lord told me:
“The secret of the Lord’s Favour is exactly hidden in the overflowing cup. Where the cup overflows with God’s Holy Oil, My Father surely comes with the Goodness and Mercy of His hands. Therefore, tell Me now: When a cup overflows with God’s Holy Oil? Or, when does My Father pour out His Spirit without measure?”
Blinding Light was shining in the lips of Jesus. In the rays of this Light, I could see the answer, which Lord was expecting from me to give Him. Therefore, I told Him:
“Jesus! Once, John the Baptist told about You:
“For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands…”
Now, Lord, when I see how the David’s cup is overflowing, it is due to the fact that Father does not give him the Spirit with limit. However, is that David, or You? For, I know that You Are the Only One, Whose cup might overflow…”
In the next moment, Jesus embraced me very powerfully. He pointed at His servant David and told me:
“Go to him and see his cup! So, you will understand whether this is David, or Me…”
I ran to David, who was playing his harp. The closer I was coming to his figure, the better I knew the answer. When I stood before God’s Anointed servant and looked at his cup, I simply fell down at the feet of God’s praise man. The cup of his heart had become an Image, and the Image of his heart was Jesus. Then, the very Image spoke to me, saying:
“Go and bring this Holiest and pure message to all My lambs! Go and give this vision of Mine to the whole My Church! From now to the end, the Lord’s hand will seek the servants in the Spirit and Power of David. He will find those, who are ready to lay their life for My Flock, and will certainly raise and appear them to all the children of God.
Now, I am calling David! I am pouring into his heart from the Holy Oil, which I gave My prophet, and I will soon appear and point at him. So, he will guide My Flock with the overflowing cup of his heart and will be God’s Anointed man – from now and forever!
He will always live in the House of the Lord!
I pronounced it! I spoke it!”
