Healing of Wounds - Balm of Gilead was an ancient, highly-valued salve or ointment which was used to soothe and heal. Mentioned several times in the Bible and named for the region of Gilead where it was produced, it was a major commodity of trade in the ancient world. Its name became associated with the power to heal and soothe. "There is a Balm in Gilead" is an African-American spiritual that compares the healing balm to the saving power of Jesus - the one true treatment that never fails to heal our wounds-- spirit, soul and body. Jer 8:21-22 "Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wounds my people?".
Healing and Intercession - In temple days, sweet incense containing Frankincense was placed on the Inner Altar of the Tabernacle and burned morning and evening. It speaks of intercession. Myrrh, used as a burial spice and in purification rites, was a primary ingredient of the Holy Anointing Oil. It speaks of suffering and death, but our total deliverance in the atoning work of Messiah. Frankincense & Myrrh, two of the three prophetic gifts given to the Messiah at His birth, represent His role as Priest and Prophet, signifying all that Messiah would do and continues to do on our behalf. Our Frankincense and Myrrh anointing oil is a unique blend of pure olive oil from Israel with an essential oil base of Frankincense and Myrrh.
Spirit of Prophecy - Our Covenant Prayer Oil fragrance is a beautiful, heavenly fragrance which spiritually speaks of the commitment and devotion of the parties entering into a Covenant Relationship, both in the Marriage Covenant and in the Believer's Covenant with the All Mighty One. Abba Christian Product’s Covenant Prayer Oil is a unique, custom blend of pure olive oil from Israel with 4 four fragrances: Frankincense and Myrrh - representing the bridegroom Messiah Jesus Spikenard - representing the bride (all believers in His body on earth) Hyssop - representing the Holy Spirit.
Worship and Praise - Spikenard, a rare and costly fragrant oil, was used by Mary of Bethany to anoint the head and feet of the Messiah two days before His death, as recorded in John 12:3: “Then Mary took 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 speaks of the Bride’s extravagant adoration of and intimacy with the Bridegroom, in total abandonment, without regard to cost. We at Abba Christian Products call Spikenard "The Fragrance of the Bride", for it symbolizes the Bride who has made herself ready. This oil comes in a brown box. Song of Sol 1:12 "While the king sits at his table, my spikenard sends forth its fragrance."
Blessings and Favor - The pomegranate, a Persian native, is one of the oldest fruits known to man and was highly esteemed by the Israelites. An enormous number of the flower petals must be pressed and steam-distilled to make a quantity of oil. Once pressed the slightly amber oil, which is the basis for all our Pomegranate products, gives off a pleasant and slightly fruity odor. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness because it is said to have 613 seeds which correspond with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the Torah. Pomegranate is one of the seven species the spies brought back with them to show how fertile the Promised Land was. It speaks of God's favor exhibited in fruitfulness and abundance - hence we call it our “Blessings Collection”. This oil comes in a brown box. Nu 13:23 "They came to the valley of Eshkol...they brought also of the pomegranates, and of the figs."
