Green Olive Tree-5
“But I am like a Green Olive Tree in the House of God…”(Psalms 52:8)
When David the youngest son was presented before Samuel, he “took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward” (I Sam.16:13).
God said, “I have found My servant David; with My holy oil, I have anointed him” (Psalm 89:20).

Healing is another use of the olive oil. In the book of James, we read that when a person is sick, they should call upon the elders of the church for prayer and anointing. James declared, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord ” (James 5:14).
The Olive oil was also used as a medicine to anoint wounds. It was used both internally and externally. It’s soothing and protective qualities made it a valuable remedy for gastric disorders, and its qualities as a mild laxative were widely recognized in ancient times.
Externally, it was used for bruises and wounds. Isaiah wrote, “From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; they have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment” (Isaiah 1:6). Jesus sent out His disciples to heal the sick and to preach the gospel. “So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them” (Mark 6:13).
