Prepared by Holy Oil

[Monday, August 19]

“I have prepared you with a holy oil, says the Lord. You have been set apart for a holy purpose that is being carefully watched over by My hand, and people will say of you, who is this one who walks in such grace? For My holy anointing is visible upon you.”

Prophetic Scripture:

And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil (Exodus 30:25).

The holy anointing oil was a mixture of spices used to represent the presence of the Holy Spirit. It was made of four costly spices added to olive oil. Each spice represents a characteristic of the Spirit upon us. The spices were: 1) Myrrh, which means submission. It was given to Jesus by the magi to signify His submission in death. As the predominant spice in the oil, it signifies our primary necessity is total submission to God. 2) Cinnamon represents holiness. It means “erect or upright,” which signifies integrity. We need integrity in the anointing. 3) Calamus is a tube-like reed or branch. It shows us being the branches upon the vine (see John 15), and that without Jesus we can do nothing.  4) Cassia means to be bowed down in a prayer posture. We cannot have a strong anointing without prayer. So in short, it takes submission, holiness, dependence on the Lord, and a life of prayer for us to walk in the anointing. These ingredients are combined with the oil of the Holy Spirit who brings them together and creates a beautiful ointment to be poured forth upon the lives of others.

The Lord is preparing you with a holy oil of His Spirit today. Offer your ingredients to Him and know that many will see His visible anointing upon you!


Lord, I offer myself that You may create a powerful anointing upon me. Create something amazing from my life that shall be visible and poured forth to minister to many people. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
