This oil is used to anoint oneself for service to the LORD and not to be taken lightly. Made from the instructions that the Great I AM gave to Moses. Once considered so Holy & Sacred, it was not to be put upon the flesh of man. Later....it could be used to anoint Kings & Priests. The ingredients are Myrrh, Cinnamon, Calamus, Cassia & Olive Oil.
In the New Testament we see that we have been made kings & priest unto God and His Father (Revelation chapter 1). In the book of James we are told Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
Clarification must be made here.....it is not the oil that has power in and of itself or that is Holy or anointed.....it is the man/woman/boy/girl that is anointed and has power because of the risen Christ that indwells them through the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Anointed One.
We see this in Action through the Apostle Paul when they would bring hankercheifs or aprons from his body; Act 19:11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:
Act 19:12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. Because of the indwelling Holy Spirit, the power of God indwells those whom He has made His abode and thus many things can be anointed by them praying over them.
Jesus being the Anointed One...we see this biblical account; John 9:6-7 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
Anointing oil has its place but must be highly respected and reverened among those who use it. Do not anoint that which is yet carnal and not consecrated unto God. Exodus 30: 22- following. This oil is made from high quality pure essential oils unlike those anointing oils in the Chistian book stores that only have the fragrance of myrrh or frankincense....this oil is highly concentrated, made to our Heavenly Father's specifications that He handed down to Moses for all generations. You'll know the difference as soon as you take the lid off!
