Fullness Of Joy

Updated: Oct 14, 2021

Psalm 16:11

Authorized (King James) Version


11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.


When this verse says "fulness", it implies that there is a measure to be met. There is full and there is empty, and there are measures in between. What is God talking about? His Presence, because the verse says, "In thy presence is fulness of joy". So God's Presence comes in measures to people. But what is measured? Our hearts.


Our Hearts Are Like Cups At A Table


Psalm 23:5

Authorized (King James) Version


5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.


The Table Represents Fellowship


1 Corinthians 10:20, 21

Authorized (King James) Version


20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.


When man eats a meal, they like to be entertained. People get entertainment through fellowship with other people. It is very "fulfilling" (as in a measure of joy) to invite friends over for dinner and laugh and talk over dinner. Your stomach gets full on food, and your heart gets full on fellowship. That's the meaning of life. We need love from people.

When you fellowship with God, it's like sitting down for a good meal to talk and laugh with Him, or, pray, read the Bible and sing songs to God. It's called fellowship. You sit down at the Lord's table to fellowship with His Presence, and He anoints your head with oil, and your cup, or, your heart, overflows with fulness of joy because you are in God's Presence! That's the meaning of life. We need love from God.

The fulness of joy and the oil of fellowship are the Presence of God. The Holy Spirit. God anoints your head with His Presence, or, His Spirit, and fills the measure, or, the size of the cup, the size of your heart, to overflowing. That's generosity. It means that God is a Spirit that loves you! He wants you happy and full on His oil and Presence, or, on the Holy Spirit! It means that the Holy Spirit, wants to be your Friend, and being the Friend of the Holy Spirit, puts overflowing joy in your heart because fellowship with God, or, knowing God, is the meaning of life!

The Oil of Gladness is the Holy Spirit


Psalm 45:7

Authorized (King James) Version


7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

The fulness of Joy Is In the Holy Spirit


Romans 14:17

Authorized (King James) Version


17 for the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.


God Gave the Holy Spirit without measure to His Son, the Lord Jesus


John 3:33-35


33-34 Those who believe him discover that God is a fountain of truth. For this one—sent by God—speaks God’s words, for God’s Spirit is upon him without measure or limit. 35 The Father loves this man because he is his Son, and God has given him everything there is.


Jesus is who David was referring to when he said in Psalm 45:7 that God anointed him with the oil of gladness above his fellows. The Lord Jesus has the Holy Spirit without measure.


From Christ's measure of the Spirit, which is overflowing without measure, God has given us a measure of the Spirit


Ephesians 4:7

Authorized (King James) Version


7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.


Ephesians 4:13

Authorized (King James) Version


13 till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:


Christ Has the Spirit Without Measure. We Have A Measure


Romans 12:3

Authorized (King James) Version


3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.


So, God gives the Holy Spirit to our hearts. What is this about?


Our hearts are empty and need to be filled by the Presence of the Holy Spirit to have meaning, satisfaction and happiness in life. We are like parched and thirsty ground that needs oil and water to live and be happy. The Holy Spirit is the oil and water.


Isaiah 35

Authorized (King James) Version


1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 10 and the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.


Isaiah 43:18-21

Authorized (King James) Version


18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. 21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.


People need to be filled with the Holy Spirit because they're empty without Him. That's what the measure of fulness is about. Having the Holy Spirit living inside of you is called "Knowing God" and "the communion, or, the friendship, of the Holy Spirit.


John 17:1-3

Authorized (King James) Version


17 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 as thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.


2 Corinthians 13:14

Authorized (King James) Version


14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.


2 Corinthians 13:14

Living Bible


14 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. May God’s love and the Holy Spirit’s friendship be yours.


When the Bible says the word "anoint" or "anointing", or "unction", it's talking about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the anointing that fills your head with joy.


1 John 2:20, 21

Authorized (King James) Version


20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.


1 John 23:20, 21

Living Bible


20 But you are not like that, for the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you know the truth. 21 So I am not writing to you as to those who need to know the truth, but I warn you as those who can discern the difference between true and false.


1 John 2:26-28

Authorized (King James) Version


26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.


1 John 2:26-28

Living Bible


26 These remarks of mine about the Antichrist are pointed at those who would dearly love to blindfold you and lead you astray. 27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, in your hearts, so that you don’t need anyone to teach you what is right. For he teaches you all things, and he is the Truth, and no liar; and so, just as he has said, you must live in Christ, never to depart from him.

28 And now, my little children, stay in happy fellowship with the Lord so that when he comes you will be sure that all is well and will not have to be ashamed and shrink back from meeting him.


The Anointing Is the baptism into the Holy Spirit. Once you confess Christ as your Lord by faith in public, this will bring the Holy Spirit


Acts 2:37-39

Authorized (King James) Version


37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.


Romans 10:6-17

Authorized (King James) Version


5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. 6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) 7 or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 and how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.


The Holy Spirit is like the wind. No one knows who He will fall upon and baptize next.


John 3:1-8

Authorized (King James) Version


1-2 After dark one night a Jewish religious leader named Nicodemus, a member of the sect of the Pharisees, came for an interview with Jesus. “Sir,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miracles are proof enough of this.”

3 Jesus replied, “With all the earnestness I possess I tell you this: Unless you are born again, you can never get into the Kingdom of God.”

4 “Born again!” exclaimed Nicodemus. “What do you mean? How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?”

5 Jesus replied, “What I am telling you so earnestly is this: Unless one is born of water and the Spirit,[a] he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. 6 Men can only reproduce human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven; 7 so don’t be surprised at my statement that you must be born again! 8 Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it will go next, so it is with the Spirit. We do not know on whom he will next bestow this life from heaven.”


The Holy Spirit Can Upon You AFTER Watwer Baptism


Acts 2:39, 39

Authorized (King James) Version


38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.


Or, the Holy Spirit Can Come Upon You BEFORE Water Baptism. He Is Like the Wind. No One Knows Who He Will Fall Upon Next


Acts 10:43-48

Authorized (King James) Version


43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. 44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.


Salvation comes by faith through prayer, and so does the Holy Spirit. Ask God to give you the Holy Spirit.


Luke 11:1-13

Living Bible


Once when Jesus had been out praying, one of his disciples came to him as he finished and said, “Lord, teach us a prayer to recite just as John taught one to his disciples.”

2 And this is the prayer he taught them: “Father, may your name be honored for its holiness; send your Kingdom soon. 3 Give us our food day by day. 4 And forgive our sins—for we have forgiven those who sinned against us. And don’t allow us to be tempted.”

5-6 Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this illustration: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You would shout up to him, ‘A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit and I’ve nothing to give him to eat.’ 7 He would call down from his bedroom, ‘Please don’t ask me to get up. The door is locked for the night and we are all in bed. I just can’t help you this time.’

8 “But I’ll tell you this—though he won’t do it as a friend, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you everything you want—just because of your persistence. 9 And so it is with prayer—keep on asking and you will keep on getting; keep on looking and you will keep on finding; knock and the door will be opened. 10 Everyone who asks, receives; all who seek, find; and the door is opened to everyone who knocks.

11 “You men who are fathers—if your boy asks for bread, do you give him a stone? If he asks for fish, do you give him a snake? 12 If he asks for an egg, do you give him a scorpion? Of course not!

13 “And if even sinful persons like yourselves give children what they need, don’t you realize that your heavenly Father will do at least as much, and give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him?”


Here is a parable about the Lord saving man with His Blood and Spirit. The Oil & Wine.


Luke 10:29-37

Authorized (King James) Version


29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.


Without the Holy Spirit, Man Is Empty. We Overindulge, Go to the Excess, Called Surfeiting, to Fill the Emptiness


Ephesians 5:17-19

Authorized (King James) Version


17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


Luke 21:34, 35

Authorized (King James) Version


34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.


BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT. GOD'S SPIRIT IS THE ANSWER TO THE EMPTINESS.

GOD'S SPIRIT WILL FILL YOUR HEART WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS

AND PREPARE YOU FOR THE RAPTURE
