So they went out and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.Mark 6:12-13
In today’s gospel, Jesus sends out His disciples two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits.
The anointing of the sick with oil, brought healing by the disciples’ hands.
So, why is the anointing with oil important?
Oil represents the anointing of God Himself as we see in the Old Testament, when God chose kings to rule His people Israel and sent His prophets to anoint them with oil.
The Bible tells us that (in Christ Jesus) we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. God’s special possession.
So, anointing the sick with oil was a sign that God was confirming His promises on the person who was being anointed, and God was claiming that person as His own.
In that Power of anointing, the Holy Spirit falls upon the anointed one and breaks every chain, every bondage and sets free from every infirmity.
