Oil in the natural is a soothing ointment. In the spiritual, it is the power of God through faith in God. The Holy Spirit is at work through faith in God and his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is used for sanctifying and for healing, including the removal of evil spirits by the presence and power of God through faith.

Gen 28:22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

Ointment for friendship

I believe oil is still to be used in conjunction with faith in God as a point of faith for healing and for sanctifying a person or place. Our faith is not in oil, but in the Holy Spirit in which it represents. The believer in Jesus is given the presence of the Holy Spirit. Through the direction of the Holy Spirit we are given the mind of Christ, the will of God and the drive to serve him in his power. Fill my vessel Lord with the oil of your Spirit so that I may serve you in your power. Amen
