The old testament does not appear to reference this specific event with regards to Jesus or the Messiah. However, the Hebrew word "Messiah" and the Greek word "Christ" both mean "the Anointed". In old testament, a person who is anointed by God is set apart for special service to him. "Anoint" is "to pour on or smear all over in oil". Jesus is the "Anointed", fulfilling the prophecy that Satan's yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing (Isaiah 10:27). See also Luke 4:18 and Acts 10:38. It may be best to reference the event of Jesus' anointing when he was baptized by John and the Holy Spirit descended on him like a dove, and God said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:17)
