UNDERSTANDING THE ANOINTING
I am starting a new teaching series on “The Anointing”, today’s post is just an introduction. Do you know that “being anointed” is more spiritual than physical?! The anointing is more than the physical materials we use for prayers such as: Olive oil, mantles, water, handkerchiefs etc. The anointing is like a divine authenticity placed upon something or someone to make such person function in a certain way. So, being anointed by God is one of the most beautiful things that can ever happen to a man on earth – It will open you up to the supernatural realms.
The Anointing is what makes an ordinary man an extraordinary person, yes, it makes a natural man supernatural, it makes a weak man become too strong for the enemy to handle (like Samson). The anointing will set you apart for a glorious supernatural function in God’s hands, If you have been rejected and hated, you will suddenly become accepted and loved because of the anointing upon you, If life has become so difficult for you, the anointing upon you will make life easy…The anointing is what makes your life, destiny and ministry to be heavenly recognized, confirmed and defended, the Kingdom of Heaven will back up your works, approve your commands and defend your mission. In fact, if there are reasons why God should draw far away from you, He will still be attracted to you because He had anointed you!
We should note that the Anointing is very much peculiar and central to Christianity, in fact, the meaning of CHRIST is “the Anointed One”, therefore, if Christians are followers of Christ, then every believer should flow continually in the Anointing…You should be an anointed one just like Jesus Christ, you should walk in the supernatural realms, you should perform signs and wonders, you should be a blessing to your generation, you should be a great light to the darkness of this age, yes, you should be a saviour in your generation!
ONE THING ABOUT THE ANOINTING IS THAT IT WILL CHANGE YOU INTO A NEW PERSON ENTIRELY, YOU CANNOT REMAIN THE SAME PERSON YOU USED TO BE ONCE THE ANOINTING COMES UPON YOU, ALSO, THE ANOINTING CAN MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO!!
If truly you have discovered your divine calling or assignment, have you asked God for the anointing to perform that calling?!!! Be anointed!!!! Amen.
