Most Pentecostal churches are known for the practise of selling anointing oil in the Church; and the fact that this has become popular with all Pentecostal churches makes it is difficult to convince people that such practise is both unscriptural and wicked. But we believe the truth will always find reception in a heart that has been renewed by the Holy Ghost; and like the Apostle Paul, in all our preaching, we do not labour to have all men saved, rather, we endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory (2 Tim 2:10).
A church that sells the anointing oil is no longer a church but a business centre, and that is exactly what many Pentecostal churches have become – a business centre.
In Matthew 21:21-22, we read that “Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”
The Scripture condemns every act of buying and selling in the temple of God; and if Jesus walked into many churches today, he would do the same thing he did to those who were buying and selling in the temple of God; he would cast out all those that practised buying and selling in the church of God; he would overthrow their moneychangers and break in pieces their bottles of anointing oil, with which they deceive the people.
If your church practices the buying and selling of the anointing oil, you have no reason to remain in such church, however popular it may be. The Lord Jesus Christ will come again, with fiery wrath and burning indignation, to purge his church from these superstitious and vain things with which false prophets and fake pastors have defiled and polluted his church. The result will be terrible; no only will he cast them out, he will cast them into hell where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, and where they shall be tormented day and night.
If your pastor or your church practices such abominable thing, it is useless staying one more second there. This short article has opened your eyes. You would do yourself much good, if you would pick your bible and walk away from such false church. They have nothing meaningful to give you, and they can not change your life. When the Lord Jesus Christ will come again, he will burn up such churches and break their bottles of anointing oil, and pour out his wrath and fury upon those pastors and prophets who do buying and selling in his temple.
Now that you have found out the truth, it is your duty to seek out a true church that preaches the truth. If you ask your pastor the reason he sells anointing in the church he will tell you a different thing, but we have written a short article to help you understand why many pastors sell anointing oil inside the church.
