Anointing Pictures, Images and Photos

Please allow me to explain this Important Matter as I see it. You can not understand any of this, if you have not studied the Word of God. First allow me to explain the Word (Anointed) Anointed. The English equivalent of the Hebrew word meshiah (messiah) and the Greek christos (Christ). The anointed is ancient Israel was the designation of the king. David, for example, refused to injure or kill King Saul because he was "the Lord's anointed". (I Sam. 24:6). And he said unto his men, The Lord forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the Lord's anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord.
In later times, "the anointed" also became a designation of the high priest when rituals and functions of the king were assumed by the holder of this office. The Hebrews used two different words for anoint. One (suk) related to the normal rubbing of the body with oil. The other (meshah) was employed primarily with reference to the act by which a person or thing was consecrated by the pouring or smearing of sacred oil. The latter type of anointing was a special religious act setting aside the anointed for divine service. Thus sacred pillars (Gen. 31:13). I am the God of Bethel where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred. the alter (Exod. 29:36), the tabernacle and its furnishings (Lev. 8:10); Num. 7:1), special bread (Exod. 29:2), and other things were anointed. The ritual of anointment was especially associated with the king (I Sam. 10:1; II Sam. 2:4, 5:3; I Kings 1:39) and thus his title "the anointed." Similar royal inauguration rituals were practiced in Canaan before the time of Israel so the ritual is not unique to the Bible. A single bibical text refers to the anointment of a prophet (I Kings 19:16). Anointment not only set aside and consecrated the object but was also believed to transfer to the recipient something of the holiness and strength of the city.
In post-bibical times, the anointed (Messiah) was one of the designations given to the expected redeemer figure. "Christ," the Greek translation of Messiah, tend to become as much a name (Jesus Christ) as a title since special anointing was not part of royal rituals in the Greco-Roman world. The use of the word Christ in the sense of Messiah or "the anointed one" can be seen in such NT passages as Mark 8:29.

To Be Filled, or To Fill, male "to fill, fulfilled, overflow, ordain,endow." Basically, male means "to be full" in the sense of having something done to one. In (2 Kings 4:6), the word implies "to fill up": "And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said..." The verb is sometimes used figuratively as in (Gen. 6:13), when God noted that "theearth is filled with violence." Used transitively, this verb means to act or state of "filling something." In (Gen. 1:22) God told the sea creatures to "penetrate" the waters thoroughly but not exhaustively: "Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas." Male can also mean "to fill up" in an exhaustive sense: "...And the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle" (Exod. 40:34). In this sense an appetite can be "filled up," "satiated," or "satisfied".
Male is sometimes used in the sense "coming to an end" or "to be filled up," to the full extent of what is expected. For example, in (1 Kings 2:27) we read: "So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the Lord; that he might fulfill the word of the Lord, which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh." This constitutes a proof of the authority of the divine Word.
In a different but related nuance, "to confirm" someone's word. Nathsn told Bathsheba: "Behold, while thou yet talkest there with the king, I also will come in after thee, and confirm thy words" ( I Kings 1:14). There is much more that I can write, but I do not wish to lose your attention, so I will stop here. Should you requir more, just let me know and I will expond on this topic more.
With the Love of our Father Jesus Christ,
God Bless you all
