THEME: RIVERS OF OIL
1 Kings 1:39
“Then Zadok the priest took a horn of oil from the tabernacle and anointed Solomon. And they blew the horn, and all the people said, “Long live King Solomon!”
-Olive oil was often used for anointing during Biblical times as it is today. Priests and king’s were anointed by used of oil which poured down like rivers. Psalms 133:1-2 bespeaks of precious oil running down Aaron’s beard to the edge of his garments. King Saul was anointed by Samuel when the Israelites demanded for a king (1 Samuel 10:1). Likewise, David was anointed king of Israel by Samuel even as his brothers seem more favorable. The Holy Spirit then came upon him from that day onwards to lead him (1 Samuel 16:13). Solomon was anointed king by Zadok the priest. Anointed priests therefore anointed kings. Aaron and his sons were anointed and concentrated to serve in the temple (Exodus 29:9). As Aaron and his sons were consecrated by the sprinkling of blood and oil on their garments to serve in the temple, we were bathed into the blood of Jesus on the cross for the remission of our sins, and birthed as a new creation by the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirt, and serve as priests and kings to God.
