Scofield Reference Notes

[3] oil

Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit (Cf) Jn 3:34 Heb 1:9. In Christ the oil-fed Light ever burns, the Light of the world Jn 8:12. But here we have not the world, but the sanctuary. It is a question, not of testimony in and to the world, but of our communion and worship as believer-priests in the holiest Heb 10:19,20. In the Tabernacle there were two compartments, two lights: the holy place with the candlestick See Scofield Note: "Ex 25:31" the holy of holies with the shekinah, or manifested glory of God. These two places are now one Mt 27:50,51 Heb 9:6-8 10:19-21 but it is important to see that there are still two lights: Christ, the Light of life Jn 8:12 through the Spirit giving light upon the holy things of God, the showbread and altar of incense; and also the shekinah, now on the face of Jesus Christ 2Cor 4:6. Into this twofold light we, as believer- priests, are brought 1Pet 2:9. We "walk in the light," not merely which He gives, but in which He lives 1Jn 1:7. But what of the command to "bring pure oil" Ex 27:20. Because our access, apprehension, communion, and transformation are by the Spirit Eph 2:18 1Cor 2:14,15 2Cor 13:14 Phil 2:1 2Cor 3:18. Our title to His presence is the blood Eph 2:13 but only as filled with the Spirit Eph 5:18 do we really walk in the light.Exodus 27:20 Parallel Commentaries
