I am so excited that finally God is releasing these nuggets on the “Anointing of God”. May God bless and empower you all as you read these nuggets as I was while preparing them. The following are dictionary definitions of the Word; “Anointing”;
1. To smear on, pour on or rub with oil as done in a religious ceremony.
2. To consecrate for religious services and offices.
3. for sanctification
4. To choose by or and as if by divine intervention
In the Holy Bible , people will anointed with oil both in the new testament and in the old testament for the following reasons; For consecration for services, to signify God’s blessings upon someone’s life, for protection, for empowerment ,to ordain for God’s calling upon one’s life, for special purposes, projects and offices.
It is important to note here that the oil or the water that is used are just a symbol , God is the only one capable of anointing someone and the blessings are resting upon the recipient from God and not from the symbol.
The anointing for us in the New Testament is more than symbol because He is the person of the Holy Spirit in us, once we become saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit. Also it is empowerment and the endowment we receive from God to enable us carry out our God given goals and God given dreams and to fulfill God’s calling, commission and purposes for our lives .Without the power of the anointing of God in our lives, we are empty and powerless and this is why some people that are not saved will go through many extreme and most times devilish means for attaining power so as to do great works. The Sons of Sceva tried to cast out like anointed Apostle Paul did, they were without the anointing and were tormented by the evil spirit they were trying to cast out because they were not anointed by God to do what they were trying to do and also spirits recognize each other in the realm of the spirit.
Acts 19:11 God gave Paul the power to perform unusual miracles. 12 When handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his skin were placed on sick people, they were healed of their diseases, and evil spirits were expelled.
13 A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. 15 But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” 16 Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.
Thank God for us as believers are already blessed by God to do exploit by the reason of the anointing He has given unto us.
Acts 1; 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
Daniel 11:32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
Isaiah 10 :27 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 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father and He will give you another Helper that He may abide with you forever
1 John 2:27 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.
2 Corinthians 4:7 We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
