Use of Oils
You may be wondering why anointing oils are used, and
how they have prophetic significance. To understand this fully, we
must recognize prophetic symbolism is found throughout the entire bible.
Let's look at two specific examples; first baptism, then communion.
When we are baptized, we prophetically and publicly identify ourselves
with the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua. In this process, we
use water. When we partake of communion, we use bread and wine to
symbolize the body and blood of our Yeshua HaMashiaka. In the same way,
when we want to identify ourselves with a particular anointing, prophetic
oils can be used.
Following the direction of Holy Spirit, is the most
important factor in moving into the use of prophetic anointing oils. For
your benefit now, let me give you a few examples.
can anoint yourself or anoint others while praying for them. Oils
are also used for consecration as someone is being set apart for a
particular work in Yeshua. You may consecrate an object, such as a
musical instrument, for the service of the Lord. Henna & Hyssop, which
represents the application of the Blood of the Lamb, is a wonderful oil to
use to anoint the door post and lintels of your home.
Prophetic anointing oils have absolutely no power in
and of themselves! They are not magical!! They represent a prophetic
declaration of our union with the Yeshua and the particular anointing they
apprehend the fullness of their meaning, The Ministries of Hegai provides
an 80 page manual which brings further revelation into the scriptural and
prophetic meaning and use of each oil.
