For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
In Mark 6, Yeshua commissioned his disciples to go out two by two and preach the good news to the people. Yeshua gave them the authority over unclean spirits and instructed them how and where to go. In verses 12 and 13 we read: And they went out, and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
Here it is obvious what they did: they preached to repent, cast out many devils, anointed many sick and healed them. All these things they did were active acts.
The first is to “wake up “the people from their wrong ways, especially, ignoring the Mashiyach who had been sent to them by Elohim. Then they cast out the devils or demons that had the right to stay with these people because of their wrong ways and trespassing of the commandments of Elohim. Many were sick and like Yeshua healed the sick, his disciples also did. Yet, the anointing with oil is what they did to the sick in order to heal them. In the Aramaic Peshitta, the original New Testament that has not been revised for almost 2000 years, the word that many Greek based Bibles: B’MeSHKHaA – can be translated as ointment or unguent called oil in Mark 6:13, and in Luke 7:46. Exactly that is what essential oils were used for in biblical times: olive oil with some essential oils. This was an ointment used for daily purposes, not as expensive as “muron” or Myrrh oil.
The difference of oils used for treatment of people, things and other purposes in the Bible is manifold. There are eleven different mentions in scriptures that specify like this: 1) anointing oils for Kings – 61 references; 2) sweet savors ? 50 references; 3) spices – 36 references; 4) anointing oils for people – 27 references; 5) incense censers – 20 references; 6) unspecified ointments – 17 references; 7) odors – 7 references; 8) perfumes – 6 references; 9) oils of joy – 4 references; 11) essential oils by context – 4 references. These general references add up to 240 mentions direct or indirect of essential oils. To learn more about the passages and verses concerned, go to Dr. David Steward’s book “Healing Oils of the Bible” and look these up in Appendix A.
The oil mentioned in the passage of Mark 6 that was applied by his disciples on the sick was an unspecified ointment, containing olive oil and aromatics.
Mark 6 teaches us the general principles how to extend the Kingdom of Elohim as Yeshua haMashiyach instructed his disciples – the anointing with oil and healing was part of their ministry when preaching repentance and casting out demons.
Now, the anointing of sick people was not only limited for use on the street with unknown people, but also with people who followed Yeshua. James 5:14 (AENT Version) teaches this in case of sickness: And if one is sick, let him call for the elders of the assembly; and let them pray for him and anoint him with oil in the name of our Master Yeshua.
The elders of any assembly should pray and anoint with oil. This is important. It is a priestly duty of the elders. This follows the principle we can read about Yeshua who healed the lepers and many others – upon healing the lepers, he sent them to the priests to follow the routine of cleansing as Torah describes it.
Even though Yeshua did not approve the deeds and the corruption of the priests, the Pharisees and the scribes, he still followed the ordained rules of Torah by sending those lepers to the priests.
Have you ever wondered what made the priests immune against contamination from all the sick and lepers who they had to inspect? Was it a dangerous duty they had to fulfill by looking after those who by law had to live outside the camp due to their contagious diseases? Probably not, as the priests and Levites had almost daily contact with essential oils they used for anointing people and for healing purposes. Thus, their health was protected by the properties of essential oils and their cleansing rituals. Their hygiene standards were high.
The same is true for aroma therapists in our days. Frequent contact with essential oils reduces their vulnerability to contagious diseases a very minimal risk. This applies also to us who apply healing oils to others. The oils prevent successful spread of viruses, Bacteria and microorganisms.
Professor Griffon, director of the French Police Toxicology Laboratory conducted tests of the properties of essential oil, among them peppermint, rosemary, cloves, thyme lavender and cinnamon on disease causing bacteria in the air; 210 colonies of microbes, including staphylococci, molds and others and set them for 24 hours in a room. He sprayed the oils in the room by diffusion. After only 15 minutes, only 14 colonies of the original 210 colonies of microbes were left. After 30 minutes, only 14 colonies of microorganism were left. All of the harmful disease causing molds and the staphylococci had been killed during the first 30 minutes. There are lots of similar test results.
The belief of doctors in the 1940?s that antibiotics would vanquish infectious diseases was soon after the debut of penicillin in 1940 invalidated. Bacteria simply evolved to avoid antibiotics. Already in 1945 it became obvious that penicillin would not be the cure?all, many had anticipated. On the contrary, because of overused giving of antibiotics, the germs mutated and today we have the problem of MRSA (=methicillin?resistent Staphylococcus aureaus) often called “superbug”.
Some of these multiple resistant bacteria cause very difficult to treat infections and have caused many lethal cases in the past years in clinics in Europe, America and other countries. Here they lurk in the air conditions and hard to clean parts of the hospitals and cause infections that cannot be healed with antibiotics.
Yet, the microbes, viruses and bacteria have never in millennia been able to become resistant against essential oils. The reason is the variety of essential oils. These oils have between 200 up to 800 different chemical components. No plant is producing exactly the same chemical composition of its oils as another plant of the same species. Light, rain, sunshine, wind, soil and other variable factors change from location to location and thus, the essential oil of the plant differs from others of the same kind. The same plant will also produce slightly different oil every year due to the weather conditions – like a wine that will taste a bit different every year.
For a virus, it is impossible to mutate and adapt to 200?800 chemical constituents as found in essential oils. Drugs are usually made by isolating one or two constituents – and they don’t change year by year. A virus can mutate easily and become resistant, rendering the drug useless. Do you see the difference in intelligence and knowledge between the natural healing oils from Creation of YHWH and human made drugs?
In Proverbs 21:20 we read: There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise. There is wisdom in this proverb, isn’t it?
Yeshua himself has been anointed in different situations. The first account of essential oils presented to him we find in Matthew’s report on the three wise men in chapter 2:10?11: And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
Myrrh was one of the first oils, Yeshua would receive on earth. Myrrh is the most popular essential oil in the Bible, where it is mentioned 156 times; 16x directly, and 138x indirectly. In ancient times mothers used it to protect themselves against infections. It brings calmness and facilitates stretching when massaged on perineum. The umbilical cord was anointed to avoid infection of the newborn child, and applied on the abdominal it removes stretch marks. Mary may have used the myrrh presented to her for these.
Myrrh has good properties to cure skin diseases and scratches; it is also supporting wound healing. Myrrh was also referred to as ointment in the New Testament.
Later on, there are accounts in all gospels, where Yeshua received anointing by women. These are in Matthew 26:1?13; Mark 14:1?9; Luke 7:36?50, and in John 11:1?2; 12:1?8. I recommend you read these accounts in your Bible; and also in
David Stewart’s book: Healing Oils of the Bible on pages 141 – 150, it is a marvelous account and lovely to read. Here is Luke’s report: And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat. And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that touches him: for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he said, Master, say on.
There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, you hast rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, do you see this woman? I entered into your house; you gave me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gave me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
Wherefore I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to who little is forgiven, the same loves little.
And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, who is this that forgives sins also? And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
We can learn a lot from this lesson. Let’s concentrate on the ointment used that came in an alabaster box. Alabaster points to the Himalaya mountain region of India and Tibet. In biblical times, spikenard was harvested in this region. It was distilled from the roots of the aromatic flowering herb Nardostachys jatamansi and transported in boxes carved from alabaster. These boxes were sealed with tallow to preserve the oil. The Greek word in the text is muron, the Greek word for Myrrh. Thus, we are told by the context that the precious ointment Yeshua received on his feet from that lady consisted of a blend of Spikenard and Myrrh.
Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi) is highly regarded in India, Nepal and Tibet as a medicinal herb. It was one of the most precious oils in ancient times. Song of Songs 1:12 While the king sits at his table, my spikenard sends forth the smell thereof. The essential oil of spikenard is produced from the roots of the plant. 100 kg of the roots are required to distill 1 kg of the oil. Spikenard alleviates pains of the soul and is almost stupefying. It offers rest and peace from emotional stress like a salubrious sleep to a new morning.
Medical properties of spikenard are antibacterial, relaxant, immunestimulating, antifungal, and anti?inflammatory. It is used with insomnia, heart arrhythmias, tension of the nerves, menstrual problems. John 12:3 describes very incisive one salient feature of all essential oils when Mary anointed the feet of Yeshua: Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. It is the fragrance that fills the house when the oils are being applied. The scent will be noticed for days. It is a lovely aroma and has still with a few molecules in the air its healing properties.
ESSENTIAL OILS APPLICATIONS IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER HEALING METHODS. The oils alone are very powerful for healing body, soul and spirit of man. As we already saw in previous lessons, prayer will enhance their application, as all true healing comes from Yahweh, the creator of all things.
We should always remember this and give Him thanks, ask for guidance and trust in Him when applying oils, no matter if we are novices on this field, or experts. A proper study of essential oils and their practical applications give a proper basis for understanding. A mindset of being ready to serve the sick and downtrodden will be a good prerequisite for applying the oils successfully; and obedience to scriptures the right mindset.
Essential oils applications should not be mixed at the same time with pharmaceuticals, as there are functional differences between both. Yet, there are great synergy effects when applying the oil with methods like the Rife resonator, as both have similar ways of working. This needs some explanation.
The American genius Royal Raymond Rife began his cancer research in 1922 and seven years later, he had built a microscope capable of staining living viruses with light to make them visible. In 1931, Rife had built a powerful new microscope capable of directly observing living bacteria and viruses. In the next year, Rife isolates the filterable virus of carcinoma and also establishes pleomorphism. Later that year, Rife and his team of scholars and physicians of reputable universities witness the destruction of typhus bacteria, the polio virus, the herpes virus, the cancer virus and other viruses in vitro and in experimental animals.
During the summer of 1934, the first cancer clinic is using Rife technology. A special University of Southern California Medical Research Committee chaired by Milbank Johnson is formed to oversee the research. Committee members are: Whalen Morrison, Chief Surgeon of the Santa Fe Railway. George C. Dock, M.D. George C. Fischer, M.D., Children’s Hospital of New York, Arthur I. Kendall, Dr. Zite, M.D., professor of pathology of Chicago University. Rufus B. Von Klein Schmidt, President of USC. Further attendees: Dr. James Couche of San Diego, and Dr. Carl Meyer, Ph.D. of the Hooper Foundation, San Francisco, Dr. Kopps of the Metabolic Clinic in La Jolla.
The clinic is at the Scripps Institute in La Jolla, California. Sixteen terminally ill cancer patients are treated. Fourteen are cured in 90 days; the other two are cured in six months.
The results of this successful cancer treatment are multiplied by some of the medical people who were in attendance in different places and clinics. Then, the success leads to suppression by the AMA through a long series of unrelated and fraudulent court cases. The team is forced to disband and to destroy their equipment. The method that cures cancer is outlawed; and the use of this technology legally forbidden to be applied with human beings. Some doctors who did not follow the orders have their licenses withdrawn, a few put into prison. Jealousy and love of money were the reasons. Since, the pharmaceutical industry earned millions and billions with their chemical and radiological treatments. Rife, unable to handle more abuse, exiles to Mexico.
His lab is set on fire, many of his records and engineering data are being lost. A sad story, yet his method survived abroad where his devices and methods are refined, the devices developed further. Today, the resonators are being built in several countries. They have become smaller and the once table size devices have shrunk with advance of technology to the size of larger cell phones with high precision. German and Czech resonators are fully CE requirements compliant, tested, and are today medical devices that comply with all EU norms. Medical doctors and health practitioners use the resonators successfully; the certified manufacturers have also developed units for home use, treatment of horses and pets with overwhelming results. Some hard headed bureaucrats and the pharmaceutical lobby are still announcing their concerns – mainly to protect their income in cancer treatments…
Now, why this introduction? The reason is that the resonator works according to very similar principles as essential oils. Both work on the cellular level.
Different kinds of body cells have different functions. One part of the human cell is mitochondria, the power plants of the cells. Mitochondria, amongst other functions, transform energy of respiration to electricity. A healthy cell emits a certain frequency as a means of protection from destructive intruders, like viruses, bacteria and other micro organisms. This works well, as the pathogenic germ cannot exist under the emitted frequency of the healthy cell.
When the cell does not function properly in case of sickness, corruption of the
DNA code, etc., the frequency will fall and thus allow disease transmitting micro organisms to reside in the cell without being harmed. Depending on the type of virus, bacteria, etc., mutation will occur. The cell will develop the wrong way and sickness is on its way.
Essential oils will do this: cleaning the cell receptors, deleting corrupted DNA code inside the cell, rewrite the code according to its original state. Still, this alone does not necessarily stop the disease. But the frequency the essential oil emits may be harmful and even lethal for the virus or bacteria. Essential oils underwent difficult research at Tainio laboratories, and the frequencies of some of the more widespread oils have been measured. The oil of rose has with 320 MHz the highest frequency of all oils. One of the most important healing properties of essential oils is their ability to elevate our bodily frequencies to levels where disease cannot exist. Interestingly, that Tainio also found that the frequency of oils is also affected by our thoughts. Negative thoughts lowered the frequencies of the oils by 12 MHz while positive thoughts raised them by 10 MHz. Prayer even raised the frequencies by 15 MHz Resonators using the Rife theory also emit exactly the frequencies, healthy body cells emit. We and some colleagues have found that applying essential oils prayerfully in combination with resonator therapy show extremely effective healing results. A friend of ours, a natural pharmacist, has had stunning results with applying this combination to lifelong dermatitis. It is almost unbelievable to see results happen that had not shown for decades.
Another great result was the treatment of a beginning flu with a ten year old boy. Just after a short treatment all symptoms were completely gone.
Abba directs us and we praise him for these answered prayers. By the end of this month, we have agreed to apply this combined treatment to a man in Israel who suffers from prostate cancer. We will use frankincense, myrrh, sage and cananga essential oils and the tiny resonator programmed on the frequencies used to treat prostate cancer. Let’s trust in Yahweh and pray that this man will be healed.
Doubts? We have no doubts, we trust in our Creator who made the heavens and the earth. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them.
When you encounter people who doubt, or even reject you when you want to share the gospel, drive the demons out and anoint them for healing – what will you do? Will you discuss with them? They probably won’t change. So, we think, we should head on to those who are open?minded, as Yeshua taught: And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Mark 6:11
Ignorance and preoccupied minds cannot alter truth but make it difficult for us to do what we are called to do. This world is corrupt and, as the Bible tells us, the love of money is the root of all evil. Yet, we are not called to comply but to overcome. In these days we need an extra portion of joy and we should ask our Father who is in heaven to grant that. The time is short and we have to endure until this darkness is over for good. With essential oils we have a great gift from our Elohim. All reports I received from those who ordered are very positive. So, what will be the next steps? I think we ought to apply the oils not only for ourselves but go on to apply them where needed and appreciated – to the glory of our Creator.
