Metaphysical meaning of anointed ones (mbd)
anointed ones, (Lat.) -- greased; smeared or rubbed with oil. The term has the same sense as the Greek Chrio, from which the word Christ is derived, and the Hebrew Mashah, from which the word Messiah is drawn.
Meta. The "two anointed ones" (sons of oil), "that stand by the Lord of the whole earth" (Zech. 4:14) are the avenues through which the oil of the Spirit of life is brought into the body consciousness. In Revelation 11: 3, 4 they are called "my two witnesses" and "the two olive trees." In Zechariah 4:6 we read, in answer to the question, "What are these, my lord?": "This is the word of Jehovah unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith Jehovah of hosts." Zerubbabel is one who restores the worship of God. And so these two anointed ones, or witnesses, keep declaring the word of God in faith and power, from the heart center (Jerusalem), to the uttermost parts of our body (the whole earth). Just below the heart we find the judgment center; the two witnesses have power to discern and to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart and to cause a drought to come upon the earth (carnal consciousness). They also have power to send plagues of different kinds, as well as fire, to purify the thoughts, and to destroy the thoughts that continue to oppose the Truth. (See WITNESSES. )
