Now what is Healing Oil?
The Healing oil when applied to a sick person by a servant of God and righteous it gives the healing to the sick person. “Is any one there who is ill, he should send for the church elders who will pray for him and rub olive oil on him, in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14). Further it is said “God hears the prayers of the righteous” (Prov: 15:39).
When a servant of God anoints and prays to prepare the person for God’s purpose surely the intentions will be fulfilled. In Matt 26: 6-12 a woman pours fragrant oil upon Jesus’ head as preparation for his death and burial.
By getting anointed with oil, a person offers himself to the service of God, as it is said “Anoint Aaron and his sons, and ordain them as priests in my service” says the Lord (Exo- 30:30)
The anointment of oil by a righteous person also works as a medicine to the wounds
(Luke 10:34) as we see the righteous Samaritan who had poured the oil and wine upon the wounds of the unknown traveler got healed. Anoint and pray asking the power of God to come into your heart or the heart of a loved one. As when Samuel anointed David as king in I Samuel 16:13, imparting the power of the Holy Spirit the Bible says “the Spirit of the Lord was upon David from time forward.”
If we turn the pages of History we can come across many incidents whenever the Christian warriors, took part in various competitions related to the technique of war and also when they went to the battle field, they got themselves anointed with oil, got prayed over by righteous persons and have gone to the battle field and in such cases have brought them presence of Jehovah Nissi Lord of victory (Ex.17:15).
During these present days we have to face lots of competitions like examinations, interviews, presentation of business proposals, driving the vehicles, travels by any means of travel, and also the legal battles in our daily life. So it is advisable just to apply
the prayer oil over our forehead before proceeding in the above tasks.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness there-fore God, your God, set you above your companions by anointing, you with the oil of Joy, says the Holy Bible (Heb.1:9)
