9956. And shalt sanctify them. That this signifies thus a representative of the Lord as to the Divine Human, is evident from the signification of "sanctifying," as being to represent holiness itself, which is the Lord as to the Divine Human, for it is this alone which is holy, and from which is all holiness in the heavens and on earth. Everyone is able to know that the oil did not sanctify; but that it induced a representative of holiness. The case herein is this. The Lord Himself is above the heavens, for He is the Sun of the angelic heaven. The Divine which thence proceeds from Him in the heavens is what is called "holy." The Divine of the Lord above the heavens could not be represented, because it is infinite; but only the Divine of the Lord in the heavens, for this is accommodated to the reception of the angels there, who are finite. In their perception this Divine is the Lord's Divine Human, which alone is holy, and which was represented. From this it is evident what is signified by being "sanctified," and why after the anointing it was said, as in Moses, "Thou shalt anoint the altar, and sanctify it" (Exod. 29:36); "thou shalt anoint the Tent of meeting, and all things therein, and shalt sanctify them" (Exod. 30:26-29); "thou shalt anoint Aaron and sanctify him" (Exod. 40:13); "Moses anointed Aaron and his garments, his sons and their garments, and sanctified them" (Lev. 8:13, 30); besides other passages. (That the Lord alone is holy, and that everything holy is from Him, and that all sanctification represented Him, see n. 9229, 9680; also that the Lord in the heavens is "the sanctuary," and therefore also heaven, n. 9479; and that the Holy Spirit is the Divine that proceeds from the Lord, n. 9818, 9820.)
