The term for Oil literally meant “fat”.  The oil came from olives off the olive trees.  The olive oil was generated by pressing and/or crushing the olive.


REVELATION;  As I was pondering the making of olive oil, I realized that Jesus was probably surrounded my olive trees when in the garden of Gethsemane.   His very prayer was a parable and prophetic sign that when we are hardest pressed and deeply crushed, as we surrender to our loving Father, it brings forth His greatest anointing to be spread and multiplied liberally.


Luke 22:39-43 NKJV

Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. 40 When He came to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."   41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." 


According to the article in International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, it notes these purposes for olive oil:


·       It was used as a commodity of exchange.

·       It was used as a cosmetic.

·       It was used as a medicine.

·       It was used as a food.

·       It was used as an illuminant for oil lamps.

·       It was used to consecrate things.

·       It represented prosperity.


WOW.  Just think if the above purposes for the anointing oil as how it relates to the value of our lives for a very needy world!!!!!!!!!!


Matt 25:1-13 NKJV

"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,  4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.  6 "And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!'  7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.  8 And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil , for our lamps are going out.'  9 But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.'  10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.  11 "Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!'  12 But he answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.'  13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. 






Scripture says we can receive the anointing through “impartation”.  There are different kinds of impartations.


Rom 1:11-12 NKJV

For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established —  12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.




NT:3330 metadidomi (met-ad-id'-o-mee); from NT:3326 and NT:1325; to give over, i.e. share:

KJV - give, imparticiple


(Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.)



One impartation is through the laying on of hands.  This is an official symbolic act in the Old Testament and New Testament. 




It was an act of blessing.


Gen 48:14-15 NKJV

Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he blessed Joseph.


It was a ritual of sacrifice and transference of sin.


Ex 29:10-11

"You shall also have the bull brought before the tabernacle of meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands on the head of the bull.


Lev 16:20-21

Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat...


It was an act of setting apart for consecration for service.


Num 8:10 NKJV

So you shall bring the Levites before the LORD, and the children of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites;




It was an act to receive the Holy Spirit.


Acts 8:15-19

Who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.  18 And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, 19 saying, "Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit."


Acts 19:6 NKJV

And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.

It was an act to set apart for ministry.


Acts 13:2-3 NKJV

The Holy Spirit said, "Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.


It was an act to impart healing.


Mark 16:18 NKJV

...they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." 



: A young man from the track team came to us and said, “I’m scared.” He showed us photos of his track buddies on the track at various events. His event was the pole vault, where they rapidly advance forward with a very tall pole and then leap over a high bar, kind of like a catapult. Grandma Anna was leaning back into me and we were both sitting next to each other on her couch. She was laying hands on this pole-vaulter and he started getting radically empowered and was shaking and vibrating all over under the power of God. I also touched him during this and said, “May you go forth in peace, in Jesus Name!”


Titus 1:4 NKJV
To Titus, a true son in our common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.


We are living in a time when the tangible, power of God can be radical.  I have experienced this so many times where I am shaking and vibrating under His powerful anointing.


I have received brand new gifts from the Lord through other prophetic leaders laying hands on me in prayer lines.  One was the gift to pray prophetic prayers outloud! 


The second time I was on a ministry team, I peeked out into the auditorium which was packed with about 1,200 people. My heart began to race and all I could see in my mind’s eye were lines and lines of people in front of me! I ran back into the prayer room and grabbed Rich’s hand and slapped it onto my forehead. Rich was a very special person. He had been hired to pray for the company from which he’d tried to previously resign, due to the Lord’s calling upon his life to pray. He is the only intercessor I know that has the world’s salary to pray! I had heard some of his stories of intercession and he had my vote for sure. So dear Rich smiled at my wide eyes and started to pray. I relaxed and received whatever the Lord wanted to give me. It lasted less than a minute and my prayer life changed from that moment on. When ministry time came, the Lord filled my mouth with prophetic prayers. People gave me all kinds of confirmation about reading their mail and I was just amazed. I knew exactly what I did NOT have before Rich’s prayer! Praise the Lord for the simple gift of laying on of hands!



A lady pursued Jesus and received Jesus’ virtue to heal her.  He did not choose to give this to her, her faith went after Jesus and her need DREW it out of Him.


Luke 8:46

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.


There are times when someone accidently bumps into me in public places.  In my mind, I always say, “In the Name of Jesus!!!”  That way if the Lord wants to give something to them, He may.  And if the enemy is wanting to dump on me, there is a standard against it.  This is a long time habit and I have seen people actually get delivered through this simple blessing of Jesus Name.




In the case of Saul in the OT, when he mingled with the prophets, he received the same prophetic spirit to prophesy. 


1 Sam 10:6-13  NKJV

Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you. 8 You shall go down before me to Gilgal; and surely I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and make sacrifices of peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, till I come to you and show you what you should do."   9 So it was, when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, that God gave him another heart; and all those signs came to pass that day. 10 When they came there to the hill, there was a group of prophets to meet him; then the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them. 11 And it happened, when all who knew him formerly saw that he indeed prophesied among the prophets , that the people said to one another, "What is this that has come upon the son of Kish? Is Saul  also among the prophets ?" 12 Then a man from there answered and said, "But who is their father?" Therefore it became a proverb: "Is Saul  also among the prophets ?" 13 And when he had finished prophesying, he went to the high place.


Often when I am in a prophetic round table meeting, or a meeting that gathers the prophetic, there is a corporate anointing to prophesy.  The spirit of the prophets stirs up the prophetic giftings and it is VERY easy to prophesy and find open heaven hearing/ seeing when the prophetic gather.  




The anointing can be transferred through distance by speaking the Word.  Often when I am watching a prophetic conference on line or TV, when I hear the Word loosed, I receive His tangible anointing wash over my soul and body with cleansing and refreshment!


There have been times in the QW chatroom where we have met to worship Him in one accord by all typing together, that we have received His tangible anointing upon our worship and praise!  It has been awesome confirmation to our gathering together and a lot of fun!


Matt 8:8-11  NKJV

The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority , having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."  10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! 





“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” (Acts 2:2 KJV)


We were expecting an impartation of the Lord’s glory. Because we knew it was going to be an impartation, I went to Pastor thinking he might have the Lord’s glory to impart. Pastor not knowing what I am thinking comes to me with his hand out, saying, “you impart good.”

I immediately realized that this particular impartation is going to come straight from the Father. So instead we both put our hands up and looked to the Lord while I prayed very strongly, “Lord impart to us Your glory!!!”

Then still in the dream I heard His still small voice say, “In the wind.” I understood that this was how He was going to impart His glory. Then as I was shaking very strongly under the power of the Lord He asked me if I enjoyed dancing with the children.

There are many impartations in My Spirit, and I use laying on of hands and other means to release gifts to My people. There is a wave of My glory coming that can only be received directly from My own touch upon and into your life. Place your heart to receive and open your sails like a ship to catch My wind.

“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” (Acts 2:2 KJV)





Oil that has been set aside and consecrated unto the Lord for His purposes can be used to impart His anointing.


Ex 30:25-32

It shall be a holy anointing oil. 26 With it you shall anoint the tabernacle of meeting and the ark of the Testimony; 27 the table and all its utensils, the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense; 28 the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver and its base. 29 You shall consecrate them, that they may be most holy; whatever touches them must be holy. 30 And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister to Me as priests. 31 And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.


Isa 10:27

It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.


James 5:14-16

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Ex 17:5-6

And the LORD said to Moses ,"Go on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel. Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink."


Handkerchiefs & aprons


Acts 19:11-13

Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.


Elisha’s staff


2 Kings 4:29

Then Elisha said to Gehazi, “Get ready to travel; take my staff and go! Don’t talk to anyone along the way. Go quickly and lay the staff on the child’s face.”


Peter’s shadow


Acts 5:15-16

As a result of the apostles’ work, sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall across some of them as he went by.


Elisha’s bones

Once when some Israelites were burying a man, they spied a band of these raiders. So they hastily threw the body they were burying into the tomb of Elisha. But as soon as the body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man revived and jumped to his feet!


I have waved glory ring and/or flags in worship and people have experienced His tangible anointing.  Twice I witnessed people receiving deliverance in this.


The prophetic school discussed the question, “Is the anointing catchable?” The following link contains some wonderful responses:
