10267. It shall be an oil of anointing of holiness. That this signifies a representative of the Lord as to the Divine Human, is evident from the signification of "an oil of anointing," as being a representative of the Divine good of the Lord's Divine love (see n. 9954, 10011, 10019). It is here said "an oil of anointing of holiness," in order that there may be understood the Lord as to the Divine Human, because this is the holy itself in the heavens; for the angels in the heavens know and acknowledge no other Divine than the Divine Human of the Lord, because of this they can think, and this they can love; while of the Divine which is called the Father they cannot think, thus cannot love it, because it is incomprehensible, according to the Lord's words, "Ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape" (John 5:37). That which cannot be seen and heard cannot enter into any idea of thought, nor into any affection of love. That which is to be comprehended by faith and love must be an accommodated objective. That the incomprehensible Divine which is called the Father is simultaneously worshiped when the Lord as to the Divine Human is worshiped, is also evident from the words of the Lord Himself, where He says that "He is the way," and that "no one cometh to the Father but by Him" (John 14:6); and that "no one knoweth the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him" (Matt. 11:27); and that "no one hath seen the Father at any time, except the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, and He setteth Him forth" (John 1:18); and therefore the Lord says, "Come unto Me all ye, and I will refresh you" (Matt. 11:28). (That the Divine Human of the Lord is the all in all of heaven, and that it is the holy itself there, see n. 9933, 9972, 10067, 10159; also that the Lord alone is holy, and all that is holy is from Him, n. 9229, 9479, 9680, 9818, 9820, 9956.)
