Six Flies That Spoil the Oil

Released July 6, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Operating under the anointing is a non-negotiable for the servant of God. Mark it down: God NEVER gives an assignment that can be sustained apart from His abiding anointing. He does not want His children to think they can do anything apart from His touch. This is why God makes advancing the Kingdom impossible apart from His presence. Solomon once wrote a strange statement apart flies that spoil the oil. From that ancient, inspired word in Ecclesiastes 10:1, we can learn some very common elements that rob us of our own anointing. In this Mavericks & Misfits episode, Jeff offers six elements of the flesh that undermine our living in the anointing of God. Many of these are regularly tolerated by Christians and churches today. Jeff's hope is that the upcoming generation will give strong pushback against these compromises and reclaim ground that Jeff's own generation has surrendered. It is time to pluck out the flies that spoil the oil.  Additional resources are available at
