Why use anointing oils in modern times?


Isa 10:27 And it shall be, in that day his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

I n times past anointing oils were used for healing the sick, casting out devils, consectraing ones self, personal belongings and family members. Formally for the purpose of dedicating that which is sanctifide or set apart to God. To anoint something or someone was to come into agreement that the person or object belongs to God.  Many feel that because we are under a new covenant that there is no real power in the so called anointing oils and therfore why bother.

There was never any power in the oils to begin with, the power was in the obedience. So when the Lord says get baptized in water we get baptised. When he said take communion we take communion. When he said through his is apostles or prophets use anointing oils we choose to obey. When He said "Do this in rememberance of me" we simply do it.

The Holy Anointing Oil

Shemen Afarshimon

Shemen Afarshimon - Hebrew - Holy Aointing Oil The Holy Anointing Oil, from the Holy Temple, was found in April, 1988 by the VJRI excavation team. After intensive testing by the Pharmaceutical Department of Hebrew University, financed by the VJRI, the substance inside the small juglet was verified to indeed be the Shemen Afarshimon of Psalm 133. The oil was used as the fragrance on the oblation for a sweet smelling savor on the sacrifices. It was also used as the Holy Anointing Oil for the priest, prophets and kings.

The finding of the oil was important for two reasons. It is the first item to be found from the First Temple period and is one of the items listed among the treasures in the Copper Scroll. On February 15, 1989, the news of the find was broken to the public by the New York Times newspaper. During the ensuing few weeks, most major news media institutions, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN, carried the story on national and international television. In October, 1989, National Geographic Magazine featured the find, followed by Omni Magazine in December of the same year. Countless other news sources carried the story for their publications
