Last night, I was watching “The Chosen.”
It was the episode in which Jesus healed the man who had been crippled for 38 years. He was sitting by the Pool of Bethesda, waiting for the angels to come and stir the waters.
But he never made it in in time. Then he saw Jesus walking to him. Jesus said, “Pick up your bed and walk.” [John 5:8] And he was healed that very moment.
Suddenly, I smelled the most glorious spices, like a cinnamon aroma. Cinnamon is mentioned in The Bible as an ingredient of the Holy Anointing Oil.
The primary purpose of anointing with the holy anointing oil was to sanctify, to set the anointed person or object apart as “holy”.
Originally, the oil was used exclusively for the priests and the Tabernacle articles, but its use was later extended to include Kings.
Cinnamon is also mentioned in The Bible as the fragrance of The LORD’s Robes. It is mentioned in Song of Solomon as the fragrance of the Bride, who is His Garden Locked, His Sister, His Spouse.
Oh sisters and brothers, here is what The Spirit is saying!
Get ready for beautiful Divine Heavenly Healing Encounters with The LORD Jesus Christ. He is coming into His Garden.
He is coming to anoint His Bride. Hear Him calling, “Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon My Garden, let it’s Spices flow!”
“Beloved. Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, The LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.
My understanding is unsearchable. I give power to the weak, and to those who have no might I increase your strength.
The Father has anointed the Son with the Oil of Joy above all others. Have you been waiting for a miracle? Come to Me, My Child.
There is no other Name by which you are saved, healed and delivered. Seek the Healer and not just the healing.
Seek the Miracle Worker and not just the miracle. For in Me, you live and move and have your being.
You are the Bride of Christ, the sons and daughters, those who seek Me. I have not left you as orphans.
I AM coming to you just as I said. You are the Garden the Husbandman has watered and nurtured and brought forth Fruit.
Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon My Garden, let its Spices flow! You shall see, hear, taste, smell and feel My Presence.
The Anointing Oil is being poured out upon you. It the Precious Oil poured out from My Head to yours, running down the Beard, down upon the collar of My Robes onto your Garments of Salvation.
It is like the Dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there I bestow My Blessing, even Life forevermore.
I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever! You are kings and priests unto Me. You are Holy because I AM Holy.
You wear My Robe of Righteousness, saved by Grace through faith, not by works lest any should boast.
My Holy Anointing Oil is flowing. The Anointing BREAKS EVERY YOKE! Receive it with joy now for the Joy of The LORD is your Strength.
Rejoice, My Bride, for I AM anointing you with FRESH OIL; It is the manifested POWER of the Holy Spirit which delivers, heals, exalts, promotes, sets you apart, and gives you favor.
Get ready for Divine Encounters, My Child. The Power of the Spirit in you shall no longer be a Mystery.
It is Christ in you, the Hope of Glory! I AM come that you have LIFE and LIFE to the overflow!”
HOLY ANOINTING OIL : There is something unique about the anointing oil. It is recorded in the Bible that when the anointing oil was poured over individuals, their lives were changed and they began to embark upon extraordinary exploits. The oil released the power and presence of the Holy Spirit into their lives. (Dr. Dominic N. Allotey)
Oil had sanctifying (cleansing) properties. Whenever someone poured oil on someone or something, they had set apart that object as a blessed object or person of The LORD. Jesus encourages His followers to anoint themselves with oil whenever they take up the practice of fasting (Matthew 6:17). And to pour oil on the sick as part of the healing process (Mark 6:13). (Biblestudytools)
CINNAMON : Another term for cassia, as a perfume. In Exodus 30:23 it is one of the ingredients of the “Holy anointing oil”; in Proverbs 7:17 it is, along with myrrh and aloes, a perfume for a bed; in Song of Solomon 4:14 it is a very precious spice. It is mentioned in Psalm 45:8, as The LORD’s Robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and CASSIA.
CASSIA : Easton’s Bible Dictionary Hebrew kiddah’ , i.e., “split.” One of the principal spices of the holy anointing oil ( Exodus 30:24 ), and an article of commerce ( Ezekiel 27:19 ). It is the inner bark of a tree resembling the cinnamon, the Cinnamomum cassia of botanists, and was probably imported from India.
Hebrew pl. ketzi’oth ( Psalms 45:8 ). Mentioned in connection with myrrh and aloes as being used to scent garments. It was probably prepared from the peeled bark, as the Hebrew word suggests, of some kind of cinnamon.
“You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed You above Your companions with the oil of joy. All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and CASSIA; from palaces of ivory the harps make You glad. The daughters of kings are among Your honored women; the queen stands at Your right hand, adorned with the gold of Ophir.” Psalm 45:7-9
“I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, with aloes, and with CINNAMON.” Proverbs 7:17
“Your lips drip nectar, My bride; honey and milk are under your tongue; the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon. A GARDEN locked is My sister, My Bride, a spring locked, a fountain sealed. Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates with all choicest fruits, henna with nard, nard and saffron, calamus and CINNAMON, with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes, with all choice spices—a garden fountain, a well of living water, and flowing streams from Lebanon. Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon my garden, let its SPICES flow.” Song of Solomon 4:11-16
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with Oil; My cup overflows.” Psalm 23:5 AMP
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, The LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.” Isaiah 40:28-29
“It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there The LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1
“But my horn shalt Thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” Psalm 91:10 KJV
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:16-18
