    disciple: The Holy Spirit will Teach us all things.1John 2:27. As We study His Word. When one is seating on Their Throne and blinded by pride,their Judgment gets Blurry, look at Hamam: Esther 7:10. With Christ on The Throne We can all Grow together.

    I'm sure that some are really getting annoyed by now with some of my input; but how can someone just be quiet, when there's so much misinformation and wrong notions about interpreting the Scriptures? We should AVOID getting into a habit of imagination and spiritualism, to substitute for real understanding; which only comes from God's Spirit, over time and maturity through proof of trial and faith.

    I agree with Irene that the oil is the Holy Spirit. But who are them that sell? I think it is the Prophets, the scribes of the Word, for in them is knowledge, which begets good works, which begets wisdom, which begets good life choices, which begets contentment from God which is of the Holy Spirit. If in this life, you can aquire to yourself blessings from God, this is the Holy Spirit.oil/lite
