‘Saints’ or ‘holy ones’ are living persons, not dead, contrary to some ideologies. Sha’ul writes to the Corinthians calling them ‘saints,’ those “who have been set-apart by Yeshua the Messiah and called to be God’s holy people” (1 Corinthians 1:2). Saints will one day judge the world and receive a glorious inheritance (1 Corinthians 6:2, Ephesians 1:18). Saints are to love one another, and their prayers rise to Elohim like incense (Colossians 1:4, Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4). Yeshua will be glorified through the saints (2 Thessalonians 1:10).
These spices were blended like a perfume into an anointing oil and were not to be used on an individual’s body, though Aaron and his sons were anointed with this oil as part of their consecration. If anyone used the oil improperly, they would be cut off from Isra’el. The oil was used to anoint the Mishkan, the Ark of the Covenant, the Table of Presence and all its utensils, the Altar of Incense, the Altar of Sacrifice and its utensils, and the Bronze Laver. After being anointed, the objects would become holy and whoever touched them would become holy.
