Oil appears as an important symbol throughout the Judeo-Christian scriptures as an important vessel for blessings and empowerments, but its meaning has never been revealed. Analysis of the Hebrew word reveals its true meaning: שמן is spelled shemen but pronounced semen. The symbol of oil hides the secret of sexual transmutation and purity.
"And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put [for] his pillows, and set it up [for] a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it." - Genesis 28:18

"Then Samuel [שמואל Shĕmuw'el] took the horn [keren, the phallus] of oil [שמן], and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit [רוח ruach] of the LORD [יהוה Yĕhovah] came upon David from that day forward." - 1 Samuel 16
"They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps." - Matthew 25
