To anoint a king.

The coronation of king Charles III

On May 6, 2023 the British Royal Monarchy will have a coronation of king Charles III, the successor of the late Queen Elizabeth II. According to the, during this ceremony the king will be anointed with holy oil (Chrism) oil by the Archbishop of Canterbury. King Charles had been considering making the anointing public and visible on TV, but has decided to keep that moment private. In keeping with tradition, this anointing and coronation will make him the head of the Church of England, as well as the King of England.  

According to a report from the

“The king has banned television cameras from filming the moment he is anointed with holy oil before being crowned at Westminster Abbey.

His Majesty has chosen to shield himself from public view during the most sacred part of the May 6 ceremony.”

“Charles’s decision to abandon plans to have a see-through canopy specially made has dashed speculation he would become the first monarch in history to be publicly anointed.

Royal sources with knowledge of the coronation planning and procedures revealed the King decided he “must respect his relationship with God”.

According to the report from the Mirror both, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla will be anointed with the holy oil:

“The Chrism oil with which The King and The Queen Consort will both be anointed was consecrated in The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem in March.

For the service it will be contained in the Ampulla, made from gold and cast in the form of an eagle with outspread wings."


The Mirror report mentions that the anointing spoon has been used on every king dating back to King James in 1603, and the tradition is meant to reflect the anointing of King Solomon by Zadock the priest, which is why it is done outside of public view.

I do understand that king Charles III is very much into the green agenda, and has a very good relationship with the WEF and Klaus Schwab the transhumanist and author of the 2030 great reset agenda. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the years ahead.

I also recognize that in all this talk of anointing and holy oils, the mention of Jesus Christ was nowhere to be found in this article by the Mirror. I do know that Gods anointing is not just for kings of the world, but for the kings of the coming kingdom, and just as Jesus Christ was anointed before his perfection by Mary Magdalene who was a sinner, we are to be anointed with the holy spirit of truth before our perfection.

According to the Holy Bible, the real anointing oil is to be made by the “sons of the prophet” and was made first by Moses to be used to consecrate the articles and people to be used in the service to God. It was also to be used for the healing of the people through anointing and the prayer of faith, as was commanded in the New Testament (James 5:14).

The world has its own versions of kings, oils and anointing based on the traditions of men, and God’s wisdom is foolishness to those who are wise in the ways of the world.

The anointing of the holy spirit is more to be desired than all the riches or power in the world.

Never let your head lack oil.
