The spices of myrrh, sweet cinnamon, sweet calamus, and cassia were used to make the holy anointing oil being mixed with an hin of olive oil. (Exodus 30:22-33). There were four ingredients.  Of these four ingredients, sweet cinnamon and sweet calamus have half as much by weight, when added together, give three equal weights of five hundred. Three is the number for for resurrection, four speaks of the world, five the number of grace, and hundred meaning the sheepfold. The olive oil as a type of the Holy Ghost alludes to this overall work of the Holy G host pertaining to these four ingredients. Four speaks of Jesus Christ as God coming in the world as a man of flesh and blood, since an Adam brought sin upon the world through disobedience, it must also be an Adam that offers a propitiation for sin through his obedience, thus satisfying the righteousness of God. (Romans 5). Three speaks of this righteous, holy, harmless, undefiled man being resurrected from the dead. Jesus will gain all the sheep that has been given to him and lose nothing as in the one hundred or the Hebrew "meah".  Five associated with the hundred is the total work of grace upon the sheepfold.


"Myrrh" is the Hebrew "mowr" meaning "as distilling in drops, and also as bitter". "Pure" is the Hebrew "derowr: meaning "flowing, to move rapidly, freedom, hence spontaneity of outflow, and so clear: liberty". In the case of myrrh which is bitter with a slow process of distillation, when used with "pure", spontaneously outflows as transparent in liberty. The Holy Ghost in a physical representation of myrrh proclaims liberty as the Person of the Holy Ghost,  Jesus Christ who tasted the bitter herbs and drank the bitter dregs out of His cup of suffering in His body of flesh. We see the Holy Ghost in the myrrh of the holy anointing oil in Jesus Christ when He broke out in the spontaneously outflowing in the Garden of Gethsemane with his soul being in an agony with great drops of sweat as blood falling to the ground. And we see the myrrh again as the Holy Ghost as the Spirit of Jesus Christ when He broke out in the spontaneously outflowing of His Spirit at Pentecost in Acts the second chapter. The first principle ingredient of the holy anointing oil was that of pure myrrh teaching us that all benefits of the Lord Jesus Christ made available to us were paid for on the cross of bitterness resulting in the glorious liberty of His Spirit, the Holy Ghost, that flows spontaneously by His precious, holy blood shed for us on Calvary. The pure myrrh  types Jesus Christ as the way, the truth, and the life of liberty of the Holy Ghost by which we are set free from the works of the law or man.


The second ingredient of the holy anointing oil was "sweet cinnamon". Sweet denotes the savour to God that is pure and holy, not that of a natural sweetener as honey, but that of cinnamon. "Cinnamon" is the Hebrew "qinnamown" meaning "to erect, cinnamon bark as in upright rolls". The sweet cinnamon speaks of the upright life of Jesus Christ as the perfect man, being the Holy and Just One manifested in flesh and blood as a human being. This speaks of the ingredient of God as to His holiness and righteousness. By Jesus Christ coming in flesh fashioned as a man made of a woman, made under the law, the holiness and uprightness of the law would be satisfied and fulfilled in Him. The law had to be fulfilled in every minute detail for the holiness of God to be satisfied. The sweet cinnamon taught us in the holy anointing oil that only God Himself could provide the supreme holy sacrifice as the Lamb of God in overcoming the world, Satan and his angels, and his own flesh.  This is Jesus Christ having the Spirit without measure resident in his human body of spirit, soul, and body that overcome the world.


The next ingredient was that of the "sweet calamus". "Calamus" is the Hebrew "qaneh" meaning "a reed (for measuring)". This ingredient of the anointing oil speaks of the measure of the reed of calamus, the measure of Jesus Christ as the rod from the stem of Jesse, a Branch out of his roots as the seed of David. This is the seed of David according to the flesh as a human being of man of the lineage of David. Because Jesus Christ overcome by the Spirit resident in him in a body of human flesh like ours, he is the captain of our salvation by his overcoming and being made perfect by his sufferings. This is the Son of man as a rod as sweet calamus, the chief cornerstone in the Kingdom of God. As He overcome by the resident Spirit that dwelled in him, we are expected to overcome to the measure of the stature of the fulness Jesus Christ, unto a perfect man. "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein." (Revelation 11:1). Jesus will measure his church by the measure of Himself in our prayer life and worship.  


The last ingredient of the holy anointing oil was the cassia. "Cassia" being the Hebrew "qiddah" meaning "cassia (as peeled, the bark, to strip off)" from "qetsiy'ah" meaning "to stoop, bow down". The cassia depicts the truth of Jesus Christ as God Almighty, the Lord of Glory leaving His former state of glory in heaven, taking upon Himself the form of a servant, being fashioned as a man of Adam, thus God manifested in flesh in the incarnation. This is He who was rich, then stooped down from heaven and became poor in order that we might be made rich through His work of the cross. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. Jesus Christ as God in His Spirit form glorified His fleshly form as a man in progressive glorification, until the cross and resurrection and final glorification of his body of flesh, the man being raised from the dead and set above all things in heaven and in earth at His own right hand. 


These four ingredients made up the holy anointing oil that anointed the priests as well as all furniture in the Tabernacle of the Congregation. The holy anointing oil is a type of the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost, Jesus Christ made possible to us by the ministry of reconciliation; that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world back to himself. The anointing is the Holy Ghost and the oil is the Word. The cassia speaks of the man Christ Jesus in the redemption office of the Son of God. Sweet calamus speaks of the office of the Son of man as the reed as a measure of the Kingdom of God that the body of Christ as the church is to be measured by in order to come unto a perfect man. The sweet cinnamon speaks of the perfect man Christ Jesus that was holy, spotless, and undefiled in all things by the Spirit that was resident in him. This is the mixture of the varying offices of God manifested in the one Person of God, Christ Jesus.  There is only one Savior Jesus Christ. If any person attempts to concoct another Savior by mixing his own ingredients, that person will surely die spiritually.  The Spirit, the water, and the blood all agree in one as depicted in the man Christ Jesus.
