On Tuesday, Nov. 1, City Harvest Church founder and senior pastor Kong Hee uploaded a video of him sharing a story about oil — specifically, olive oil.
In it, he relates that he was inspired, while driving in heavy traffic, to fill a bunch of small bottles with olive oil, and distribute them to church leaders.
Now, in case we failed to capture the context of what Kong said adequately, we transcribed what he said, alongside accompanying excerpts from the video:
“The bible says that we need to as leaders in the church we need to anoint those who are sick, those that are going through a hard time with oil, and the prayer of faith is going to turn their situation around, that’s from James Chapter 5.
So as I was driving, I dropped Dayan off in school, I was driving back in the midst of heavy traffic and suddenly I thought, ‘you know what, why don’t we just get little bottles and just fill it up with olive oil, and give it to all our leaders…’
‘I want you to take this bottle of anointing oil, and the prayer of faith, and erase the sit… look, you know, if your home is going through a challenging time, anoint the situation at home, pray over those that are sick, that are going through challenges in their job.’
I mean there’s nothing magical in this, but our faith in the anointing of the Holy Spirit is going to bring us into signs, wonders and miracles and I know that’s God’s will for you and that’s God’s will for our church.”
