Page 3 nothing much to do. We in our humbler corner can also do strong without the help of the Holy Spirit. We are tempted to fill the oil into cracked vessels. Crack is the weakness that lays hidden in the wall of the vessel covered by layers of oil sludge. Waiting to be exposed and widened under pressure of success or temptation. Oil of the Spirit & anointing come & go like for Samson in the OT whereas we should be NT Christians who continually live & walk in the Spirit. Samsonian errors also begin to show up. Then we disown the star while nobody helped the man's weakness when he was in his meteoric rise and only used him. (27) And He searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, Help of the Spirit comes when He is allowed to search our heart. In this search He makes known to us the hindrances present in our heart and removes the high places and fills the low places in our heart structure that obstruct His work and flow of grace. “He makes the way of the Lord & the way for the Lord” to work on our behalf. When we allow the way of the Lord to be made in us, His power, goodness & His Highness come to our aid. When we allow the way of the Lord to be made in us, thru us he can make the way in others as we pray. If not we can correctly pray mind prayers which have no beneficial effect. In fact some prayers condemn. Filling our valley, flattening our mound (of obstinacy), straightening our crooked place and smoothening our rough place are all the roadworks of the Holy Sprit inviting the grace & glory of God to work in us, thru us, for us. Holy Spirit hovered (brood) over the primordial creation like a hatching hen over her chicks. Gen 1:2. But it was in process of formation, for the Spirit of God moved upon the waters, ????? (breath) denotes wind and spirit, like p?e???a from p?e´? . Ruach Elohim is not a breath of wind caused by God ( Theodoret , etc.), for the verb does not suit this meaning, but the creative Spirit of God, the principle of all life ( Psa_33:6 ; Psa_104:30 ), which worked upon the formless, lifeless mass, separating, quickening, and preparing the living forms, which were called into being by the creative words that followed. ??? in the Piel is applied to the hovering and brooding of a bird over its young, to warm them, and develop their vital powers ( Deu_32:11 ). In such a way as this the Spirit of God moved upon the deep, which had received at its creation the germs of all life, to fill them with vital energy by His breath of life. This Holy Spirit returns in the NT as the Dove. Matt 3:16. When Adam fell into sin, they took cover from the Spirit of the Lord God & hid. This hiding veil thickened with time with sin & excuses, pride & prejudice, sense & nonsense of knowledge puffing man up to resist God. Yet the decree of judgement was not pronounced. God came as usual as a gentle breeze with light of the day. This symbolism will change to fire after God pronounced judgement. Rebellion was already on. Adam did not confess but excused himself and accused woman. Woman accused serpent. By Gen 3:24 the presence of
