The Anointing

02 Sep

You have the anointing of God flowing through you if you are born again. The anointing of God is not the Holy Spirit, the anointing of God is the power of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is God, He’s not an influence emanating from God, but He’s God Almighty for the bible says ” Now the Lord is the Spirit…”2 Cor. 3; 17. The bible also calls Him God in Acts 5:3-4 “But peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost…. thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God”. Jesus Christ also chose the pronoun “He” while promising the Holy Spirit, not “it” “And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that ‘he’ may abide with you forever…whom the world cannot receive because it seeth ‘him’ not…” John14; 16-17 The Lord said the world cannot receive the Holy Ghost because it seeth Him not. The reason is because the world is ruled and dominated by the senses. Over the centuries, humanity has trained the brain in the school of the five senses and so the un-renewed mind receives through the senses and found life miserable the moment it get a little beyond the senses. The world must see to believe but thank God we’re beyond the senses. Our own education proceeds within- from the Spirit. We know inwardly but the world sees outwardly to believe.

The Holy Spirit anoints you if you’re yielded to Him. It’s that anointing that cause you to live a Christian life. The Holy Spirit is in the ministry of making us more like Christ everyday as we fellowship with Him in obedience. In this understanding, the apostle Paul prayed “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” 2 cor.13; 14

The anointing flows as a river of love, from the Spirit of grace, in the hearts of yielded believers. God anoints people that loves Him more than they love their own self and that love others as themselves. As we open our hearts to love others God’s anointing flows through us. When we close our hearts to others and grieve the Holy Spirit the flow stops in other to call us back into our love walk. (1 John 3:17 NKJV) But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? (Proverbs 4:23 NKJV) Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. The anointing of the Holy Spirit is given to people to demonstrate God’s love and power. The name Christ means the “the anointed One and His anointing”. Because Christ is in us the same anointing that He had on earth we also have NOW. (Luke 4:18-19 NKJV) “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; {19} To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

The anointing is the burden removing, yoke destroying, power of God! It’s simply the supernatural power of God Almighty.

Purpose of the anointing.

1. The anointing is given to preach the gospel to the poor. The anointing is not meant for sitting, it’s meant for going. When God anointed Jesus, He did not sit down-celebrating the unction but Acts 10:38 says He went about, doing good, healing all those who were oppressed of the devil.

2.The anointing is given to heal and restore people

3. The anointing is given to proclaim freedom to the captives

4. The anointing is given to open blind eyes

5. The anointing is given to set people free.

The anointing flows in God’s timing and proclaims God’s timing.

The anointing is given to preach the gospel to the poor, to bring the revelation of God’s love to those who are seeking.

The anointed person must go to people that can receive it. (Matthew 13:57-58 NKJV) So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” {58} Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 10:13-14 NKJV) “If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. {14} “And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 2. The anointing is given to heal and restore people (Acts 10:36-38 NKJV) “The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ; He is Lord of all; {37} “that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: {38} “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. 3. The anointing is given to proclaim freedom to the captives (2 Timothy 2:24-26 NKJV) And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, {25} in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, {26} and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. 4. The anointing is given to open blind eyes (2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NKJV) But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, {4} whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. (Revelation 3:18 NKJV) “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

The anointed person must go to people that can receive it. (Matthew 13:57-58 NKJV) So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” {58} Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 10:13-14 NKJV) “If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. {14} “And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 2. The anointing is given to heal and restore people (Acts 10:36-38 NKJV) “The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ; He is Lord of all; {37} “that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: {38} “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. 3.

5. The anointing is given to set people free (Isaiah 10:27 NKJV) It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.(John 8:36 NKJV) “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

6. The anointing flows in God’s timing, and also proclaims God’s timing (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. As we walk in the anointing of God we go where God wills, do what God wills, and say what God wills. (John 8:28-29 NKJV) Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. {29} “And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” The anointing of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God (John 4:10 NKJV) Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” (John 4:13-14 NKJV) Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, {14} “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 7:37-39 NKJV)

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. {38} “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” {39} But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. (2 Corinthians 1:20-22 NKJV) For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. {21} Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, {22} who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. The anointing gives wisdom (1 John 2:20 NKJV) But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. (1 John 2:27 NKJV) But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. (Isaiah 11:2 NKJV) The seven fold works of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. (Daniel 12:3 NKJV) Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. (Proverbs 11:30 NKJV) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. (Psalms 90:12 NKJV) So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom
