Good Morning - this morning I’m reading from Song of Songs, passion translation - I couldn’t get past verse 3:
𝚈𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚕𝚘𝚟𝚎𝚕𝚢 𝙽𝚊𝚖𝚎 𝚒𝚜 𝙵𝚕𝚘𝚠𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝙾𝚒𝚕 . . .
On February 1 of this year, I had a dream. Inside the dream was the depiction of “oil trees” - while the remaining content of the dream held importance - I was keenly keyed in on this Oil Tree, as they are mentioned in Scripture.
𝙸 𝚠𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝚙𝚕𝚊𝚗𝚝 𝚒𝚗 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚠𝚒𝚕𝚍𝚎𝚛𝚗𝚎𝚜𝚜 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚌𝚎𝚍𝚊𝚛, 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚜𝚑𝚒𝚝𝚝𝚊𝚑 𝚝𝚛𝚎𝚎, 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚖𝚢𝚛𝚝𝚕𝚎, 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚘𝚒𝚕 𝚝𝚛𝚎𝚎; 𝙸 𝚠𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝚜𝚎𝚝 𝚒𝚗 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚍𝚎𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚝 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚏𝚒𝚛 𝚝𝚛𝚎𝚎 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚙𝚒𝚗𝚎, 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚋𝚘𝚡 𝚝𝚛𝚎𝚎 𝚝𝚘𝚐𝚎𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚛 Isaiah 41:19
This particular set of oil trees are not the type of tree for food per se; they are specifically found to be of a medicinal value. The produce from the oil trees would be used in balms and applied as an ointment whenever a wound or healing was needed.
Now consider the ancient practice of pouring into a wound the oil and the wine. One was antiseptic, the other, nutriative and moisturizing. The Good Samaritan account is only one instance where we see this displayed.
If you’ve followed any of the recent thoughts via Connections, The Study (or my FB wall) you are already aware that the terms 𝚜𝚊𝚕𝚟𝚊𝚝𝚒𝚘𝚗 and 𝚑𝚎𝚊𝚕𝚒𝚗𝚐 are synonymous. They are interchangeable, and cannot be extracted one from another —
I find it beautiful that immediately after the Passover for ancient Israel, the Lord revealed Himself to the nation as their Healer: Jehovah Raphe. Here we are, globally, having experienced a Passover of our own, literally caused by a health crisis . . .
In Moses day, the nation of Israel was admonished to put their faith and trust in the Lord - He would heal them. He would provide for them. He would meet their every need, because He was their 𝚜𝚘𝚞𝚛𝚌𝚎.
The term Messiah was given to Ye’hoshua/Yeshua - Jesus - as He came in the world scene in His day. The term “messiah” is taken from a Hebrew word meaning “to anoint with oil”
Jesus, The Tree of Life, was the Oil Tree - He carried, and carries healing in His Name.
Today, the Name above all Names - Flowing Oil - brings forward His healing virtue. He provides a healing. He provides, out of His own attributes, a solution.
May The Name be exalted in every circumstance wherein healing is necessary.
