THE ANOINTING OIL

Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:  “Also take for yourself quality spices—five hundred shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much sweet-smelling cinnamon (two hundred and fifty shekels), two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cane, five hundred shekels of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil.  And you shall make from these a holy anointing oil, an ointment compounded according to the art of the perfumer. It shall be a holy anointing oil.  With it you shall anoint the tabernacle of meeting and the ark of the Testimony;  the table and all its utensils, the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense;  the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver and its base.  You shall consecrate them, that they may be most holy; whatever touches them must be holy.  And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister to Me as priests. “And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.  It shall not be poured on man’s flesh; nor shall you make any other like it, according to its composition. It is holy, and it shall be holy to you.  Whoever compounds any like it, or whoever puts any of it on an outsider, shall be cut off from his people.’ ”(Exodus 30:22-33).

The anointing oil made from different measures of myrrh, cinnamon. cane, cassia, and olive oil, is specially prepared for consecrating utensils and even the priests to God. Once this oil touches any item, God says it becomes holy. This is how God uses His own method to purify or to remove every form of contamination in anything He wants to set aside for Himself, because they have to be holy as He is Holy. Thus the tabernacle, the Ark , the Table,  the Lampstand, the Altar, and the Laver are consecrated with this anointing oil, and anything that now touches these things are also made holy by the permissive will of God. Things have to be done according to His command. There is no shortcut around it. He says nobody should compound anything that look like it for whatever reason, otherwise such people shall be cut off from the face of the earth. With this anointing oil all the priests from generation to generation are anointed to do the work of God. With this anointing oil, kings are set aside to rule the people of God. The anointing oil became a very important channel through which God sends down His power to us so that His work can be perfected on earth. Through the anointed people of God, miracles happen, signs and wonders are seen because the power of God is resident in them.

God spoke through Isaiah how the anointing oil would be applicable to destroying bondage. Isaiah 10:27 says “It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil. Whosoever is consecrated with this anointing oil, that person has the authority from God to destroy every Satanic agenda in the life of people. Luke also declared in chapter 10:19 as follows, ” Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Jesus conferred on His disciples the power to destroy every thing the enemy has done. Matthew 28 also says this same authority is extended to all believers to go and make disciples in Jesus Name. It reads, “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. All believers including you and I have been anointed to do God’s work by pointing Jesus to every one. Jesus came to the world for this purpose to show the God of heaven to every one, and whosoever believes in Him believes in God that sent Him, and they will not perish but have everlasting life. I pray that God will use us to fulfill His purpose on earth in Jesus Name, Amen. Remain in Him.
