Anointed by God
I want to talk to you about the Anointing Today and how EVERY Christian can be Anointed By God!!!
But before I start I have to challenge you in a VERY BIG WAY….. I NEED YOU TO FORGET!
I need you to forget WHATEVER you THINK you might know about the anointing and listen as if you don’t know anything……..
Can you do that for me today?
You see we have our church understanding, but do we have a DIVINE UNDESTANDING? exp
We don’t need a CHURCH Understanding of scripture do we? That leads to denominations/divisions/religion
We NEED a DIVINE UNDERSTANDING of what being ANOINTED BY GOD MEANS!
Are you ready for a DIVINE Understanding at what Anointed By God MEANS?!?!?!
SO I asked God what does Anointed REALLY MEAN
And he told me VERY CLEARLY, “they need to KNOW what anointed REALLY MEANS in order to move in it”
Many times we think of the anointing and we go back to the anointing of Kings and Prophets……exp
But we need to go DEEPER and FARTHER than that!!!
That IS NOT the ORIGIN
What a PROPHETIC PICTURE…I am REMINDED of the Baby in Swaddling Clothes and a manger…..
The GLORY, POWER, MAJESTY started in swaddling clothes and a manger……..
Well the GLORY,POWER, and EMPOWERMENT of the anointing ………………
Started from a practice of simple ancient shepherds.
NOT KINGS OR PRIESTS OR ANYTHING SO GRAND
Lice and other insects would often get into the wool of sheep, and when they got near the sheep's head, they could burrow into the sheep's ears and kill the sheep.
So, ancient shepherds poured oil on the sheep's head.
This made the wool slippery, making it impossible for insects to get near the sheep's ears because they would just slide off.
Prophetically speaking the GREAT Shepherd(Jesus) is the one that POURS the OIL on HIS SHEEP (us)
From this, anointing became symbolic of :
Blessing, Protection, and Empowerment
The New Testament Greek word for “anoint”
chrio, which means “to smear or rub with oil, and by implication to consecrate for office or religious service”;
In Bible times, people were anointed with oil to signify God’s blessing or call on that person’s life
(Exodus 29:7; Exodus 40:9; 2 Kings 9:6; Ecclesiastes 9:8; James 5:14).
A person was anointed for a special purpose—to be a king, to be a prophet, to be a builder, etc. (tabernacle)
There is NOTHING WRONG with anointing a person with oil today.
We just have to make sure that the purpose of anointing is IN AGREEMENT with Scripture.
BUT the oil should NOT be viewed as a "magic potion."
The oil itself does not have any power.
It is ONLY God that can anoint a person for a specific purpose.
If we use oil, it is only a SYMBOL of what God is doing.
Another meaning for the word anointed is "chosen one."
Jesus WAS the CHOSEN ONE
And he actually declared his anointing….
Luk 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is on Me; because of this He has anointed Me to proclaim the Gospel to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and new sight to the blind, to set at liberty those having been crushed,
Luk 4:19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
BUT Jesus LEFT, the chosen anointed one left…….
After Jesus left the earth, He left us the gift of the Holy Spirit …. The one that pours out the ANOINTING
So Now ALL Christians are ANOINTED, CHOSEN for a specific purpose in furthering God's Kingdom.
2Co 1:21 But He confirming us and anointing us with you in Christ is God.
2Co 1:22 And He has sealed us and having given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
BUT you say how is God gonna anoint me?
I may not admit this publically BUT I HAVE ISSUES!
God cannot use me to heal anything greater than a common cold or a headache……
I’m not called to that…. OH YES YOU ARE
The word Christ is a Greek word.
Why the English translators failed to translate it in the Bible, I don't know.
But that failure has COST US a GREAT REVELATION.
The word Christ isn't Jesus' last name.
It is not a title.
It's a word with a very SIGNIFICANT MEANING.
Christ actually means anointed.
To anoint is to literally "to pour on, smear all over, or rub into."
So the Anointing of God is to have God…………. POURED ON ,SMEARED OVER and RUBBED INTO!!!!
The Anointing of God is God ON FLESH DOING ONLY those things ONLY God can do.
It IS NOT, helps and being nice and anything you can do UNDER YOUR OWN POWER
It is HEALING AND CASTING OUT AND SETTING THE CAPTIVES FREE
WE need to stop CHEAPENING the Anointing
Because the anointing IS GOD…………. POURED ON, SMEARED ON AND RUBBED INTO YOUR FLESH!!!!!
Practically speaking, what does that Anointing of God on flesh do for us?
Isa 10:27 And it shall be, in that day his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
Some people say the anointing BREAKS the yoke.
But the word used in Isaiah isn't break, it is DESTROY.
It literally means to OBLITERATE so COMPLETELY that there is no evidence the yoke ever existed.
So IF you are MOVING under the ANOINTING of God…
Drug Addicts WILL NOT DESIRE their drugs ANYMORE!!
Alcoholics WILL NOT DESIRE their drink ANYMORE
Fornicators WILL NOT DESIRE to fornicate ANYMORE
They CANNOT just go back and pick up their BROKEN YOKE again and PUT IT BACK ON
BECAUSE when the ANOINTED Of God MOVE UNDER that POWER the YOKE IS DESTROYED
OBLITERATED, IT NO LONGER EXISTS!!!!
WHAT POWER….WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE!!!!
He DOESN’T BREAK the yoke, HE DOESN’T REMOVE the yoke
HE DESTROYS IT, IT NO LONGER EXISTS
• You know the ORIGINS of the anointing
• You know the POWER of the anointing
• You know that CHRIST is not a last name
SO here is how it all COMES TOGETHER TODAY
Eph 2:11 Therefore remember that you, the nations, in time past were in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Eph 2:12 and that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who were once afar off are made near by the blood of Christ.
Now lets substitute anointing for Christ….(reread)
According to these scriptures, BEFORE you were born again, you were WITHOUT the Anointed One.
If you were without the Anointed One, you were also without the anointing, right?
****BUT NOW, you are IN the Anointing of Jesus.
That anointing is AVAILABLE to you in EVERY SITUATION
To DESTROY and OBLITERATE EVERY yoke of bondage COMPLETELY
This is why YOU CAN HAVE HOPE in the most hopeless situation.
You CAN BREAK OUT of that hopeless situation if you'll MOVE IN the anointing.
TAKE HOLD of that anointing by beginning to EXPECT
Start expecting something good to happen to you.
LAY HOLD of the hope that's set before you in the promises of God.
Think about and meditate on those promises.
Let them build until you can see yourself UNDER the ANOINTING….DESTROYING ALL THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL
God has made a covenant with us just as surely as He made it with Abraham.
But instead of making it in blood of animals, He made it with the shed blood of His own Son - Jesus the Anointed One.
YOU ARE ANOINTED……
GOD EXPECTS YOU TO CONQUER
You’re the head and not the tail
Your more than a conqueror
No weapon formed against you shall prosper
You KNOW all that but WHY WILL IT WORK FOR YOU???
Because God is POURED ON, SMEARED ON and RUBBED INTO YOU…HIS CHILD
HIS PRIDE AND JOY
THE BRIDE HIS CHURCH!!!!!
