Anointing with Oil was a common
Biblical practice which continues today. In the Bible, people, places and things were anointed with Holy
Oil. The ceremony of
“anointing with Holy Oil” means to make Sacred, to consecrate or to
set apart, and dedicate it for use unto our CREATOR. Yahshua has a triple anointing as Prophet, High Priest, and King.
doesn't call the equipped; He equips the called."
YAHWEH instructed Moses how to prepare a Holy
Anointing Oil for anointing the
Tabernacle, all of the religious objects used in it, and the priests
(Exo.30:23-35; Lev.8:10-13). Quality spices of liquid myrrh, cinnamon,
sweet-smelling cane, cassia, were to be blended into olive oil. It
was “compounded according to the art of the perfumer.”
The main ingredient is olive oil, which has both secular and
Sacred purposes. The olive
tree is very important in secular life for oil lamps, cooking, etc., and
in religious life, the Bible mentions it some 50 times. Pictured on
the right, the olive tree has been a symbol of peace and prosperity since the time the
dove returned to Noah’s Ark with an olive branch. The olive tree “epitomizes the Spirit of the Lord” and for
that reason it was forbidden to cut it down in ancient times.
As with any Holy Offering to YHWH, HE commands us never to cheapen
the Holy Oil of the Anointing, mix foreign substances into it, dilute it
or create our own version of it, and it is never-ever
to be compounded on the Sabbath.
And don’t even think about using any of today's synthetic substitutes
and be aware, the Holy Spirit is holy! The Bible shows us that those
who would tamper with the holy recipe suffered serious consequences, such
as Aaron’s sons, Nadab and Abihu, who offered strange fire on God’s
altar in Lev. 10:1-2.
During anointing, the person customarily knelt while oil was
poured or rubbed on the head or forehead. For extra special anointing, this Rite can be incorporated with
the “laying on of hands” beginning with a kiss or hug (1Sam.10:1),
and then ending in a prayer.
There are three types of Anointing for people: Sacred, medical
and ordinary. The Apostle
John writes in 1John 2:27, that anointing refers to a Sacred spiritual
process in which the Holy Spirit empowers a persons heart and mind with YAHWEH’S
truth and love. The Prophet
Isaiah writes 10:27, “. . . the yoke [of the evil one] will
be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” You can anoint yourself by taking some oil and place a small
amount on your forehead and claim YAHWEH’S
promise of HIS strength
Today, many infant children are sprinkled
with water and it is called a baptism. Technically, it is not a true baptism.
Dedicating a child to our CREATOR and HIS path of righteousness is a good
thing. But anointing the child with oil might be a better spiritual
tool. And when that special day arrives, and dedication ceremony begins,
it should be the parents invoking the Rite of Anointing. Priests
should be spiritual coaches, not hired masters of ceremony.
The Apostle’s went out two by two . .

(Ps.23:5; Mar.6:13). Elders of the church are instructed to anoint the sick for
the purpose of healing (Jam.5:14). The dead are anointed before burial (Mar.14:3-9).
In the hot dry climate of Judea, a guest in the home was
anointed, partly as a token of honor or esteem, and partly to moisten
the skin after exposure to the elements. Yahshua accuses Simon of a lack of hospitality by neglecting to
anoint the head of one he had invited to eat with him (Luk.7:46). And it can be used during times of fasting (Mat.6:17-18).
