Church Or Ball Game?
A father took his five-year-old son to several baseball games where “The Star-Spangled Banner” was sung before the start of each game.
Then the father and son attended a church on a Sunday shortly before Independence Day. The congregation stood and sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
After everyone sat down, the little boy suddenly yelled, “PLAY BALL!”

Beverley has been serving the Lord since she was a child. At an early age, she recognized that God had a special plan for her life, but it was not until in her adulthood that she surrendered her total life to God and accepted the mandate that God placed on her life. The Lord called her into His Kingdom to be an encourager, intercessor, teacher, scribe, priest, and to proclaim the Word of God. Since then, Beverly has established a blog to teach us to become the oil and wine. The oil and wine are purified and mature products, which is the advanced level that the Lord expected of us. In 2017, Beverley published her first book, Harm Not The Oil And Wine. In it, she described her trials and how God helped her to overcome them, and to live more victoriously. The book also exposed the enemy of our souls with detailed information about his past defeats and future extinction. Wright spents most of her time studying the Bible to know the truth of God’s Word. She believes that only God’s truth can expose the deception of the enemy, and uproot and tear down spiritual strongholds. You can learn more about Beverley’s life and testimony on her website becomingtheoilandwine.com. You can also find her on Facebook and Google+ under the name of her blog, and on Twitter as @Theoilandwine. View all posts by Beverley

Becoming the oil and wine
Becoming the Oil and Wine blog was founded on March 19th, 2014 by Beverley Doreen Wright in direct obedience to God to teach, encourage and uplift His people.
In 2011, Beverley gave up all secular goals and desires to answer the call of God on her life. Her first project was to start this blog to share her journey to becoming the oil and wine.
God has called each of us to become the oil and wine. This is an advanced stage of maturity in God. The process to become these pure and refined products involve trials to help build and mold your character.
Becoming the oil and wine is an ongoing faith journey. But, during the process you will receive total protection from God because He has commanded the enemy to “harm not the oil and wine” (Revelation 6:6b NKJV)
As the Oil and Wine, you can be like the good Samaritan who poured in the oil and wine on the wounds of those who have been robbed and abused by the enemy.
Thank you for visiting and supporting this blog. Remain steadfast in your journey to become the Oil and Wine.
