Keys to Anointing

But my horn you have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh Oil  Psalm 92:10

KEY TRUTH
We cannot live on past revivals and the past anointing we experienced. We must be people who are anointed of God and walk in a fresh anointing daily.

What is the Anointing?

  • The anointing is the Hand of God, the power and the life force of God upon your ministry.
  • The Anointing is God flowing through you.
  • Without the anointing, you are empty, with nothing to give people and there will be no results.
  • Religious programs and hypes are not the anointing.
  • Anointing means the touch of God upon our lives

But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 1 John 2:20
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. 1John 2:27

NOTICE:
It is the anointing that TEACHES AND COMMUNICATES LIFE to people and not Biblical knowledge or the memorization of facts. Being loaded with information doesn’t teach. It is the anointing that teaches and produces life.
You get the anointing by spending time with God. You must have communion with God. He is the Anointer and the Power source.
As the Lord calls you to a specific office of ministry, He gives you an anointing to stand in that office. There is a specific anointing that goes with your calling. If God has not anointed you to do something, don’t attempt to function in that office or ministry because nothing will happen and there will be no results.
Only the Holy spirit can anoint you, call you and supernaturally equip you.

  • Man cannot impart it to you. 
  • Denomination cannot impart it to you
  • Your family cannot impart it to you

It is the anointing that changes you into another man when you minister
“Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 1Samuel 10:6
Exodus 30:31-33 warns us not to substitute anything for the anointing- not man’s ability, not human personality, not hype, not religious activity. The presence of the lord is the anointing. The characteristic feature of Jesus’ presence and the anointing is not tongues or prophecy, it is LIFE! When you are anointed to speak or to teach, the power of God is behind your words. God’s life is backing what you say and your words will not fall to the ground empty. Our anointing must be fresh and up to date. We must never lose the anointing.

UNDERSTANDING THE ANOINTING

But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 1 John 2:20

SAY: I have an anointing
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. 1John 2:27

SAY: The Anointing abides in Me
SAY: The anointing abiding in me teaches me and protects me from error
The anointing is the manifestation of God’s power, God’s ability, and God’s presence that produces supernatural results.
You cannot live in victory without the anointing.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE ANOINTING?

  1. THE ANOINTING OF GOD DESTROYS THE YOKE OF BONDAGE
    Isaiah 10:27
    The purpose of the anointing is to destroy the works of the Devil
    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. Isaiah 10:27Anointing DESTROYS every yoke of Bondage
    …For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8
    The Anointing does not break the yoke

    • The anointing DESTROYS the yoke
    • “Destroy” means pull down, tear down, demolish, shatter, eliminate, wipe out, lay in ruins
    • A yoke is a heavy weight or burden
    • A yoke is anything that binds or holds you in bondage
    Yokes of Bondage = the works of the devil
    Yokes can come in the form of sickness, sin, fear, depression, suicide, bad habits (smoking, drugs, alcohol dependency, compulsive desires and addiction) demonic influence and oppression, pornography, prostitution, the occult, homosexuality, violence, rebellion etc
    1 John 3:8, Luke 4:18
    The anointing heals, saves, sets the captives free, and delivers mankind
  2.  THE ANOINTING OF GOD WITHIN US TEACHES US ALL THINGS
    John 16:13: However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

    We can live free from deception, error, and false teachers because the anointing protects us and warns us within. 1 John 2:27
  3. THE ANOINTING EQUIPS US WITH THE MIRACLE POWER OF GOD TO DO THE WORKS OF JESUS
    John 14:12 : Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. Acts 10:38: “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. John 17:18,22 “As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
    “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:
     
    John 20: 21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 
  4. THE ANOINTING IS GIVEN TO MAKE US DYNAMIC SOULWINNERS AND BOLD WITNESSES OF THE RESURECTION OF JESUS
    Acts 1:8; Acts 4:31,33
    You need the anointing of God to minister to people’s needs
    The anointing will cause us to walk in boldness 
    “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus”. Acts 4:13 We need to be bold, fearless people of God in these last days
    The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion. Prov. 28:1
    • The anointing will make you a bold, radicle Christian!

    • His ability becomes your ability
    • Because of the anointing, God’s ability becomes your ability
    • The word of God is a vital link to the anointing
    • The word of God releases the power of God

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
    Rom. 1:16

HOW TO KNOW GOD’S ANOINTING : 

  • Surrender absolutely to the lordship of Jesus Christ
  • Believe the word of God and what it teaches about God’s Anointing
  • Repent from all sins: especially unbelief, doubt, fear, things of the occult, forgiveness, blockage of mind, wrong doctrine and the traditions of men
  • Be baptized with the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4
  • Read again the scriptures in 1John 2:20 and 2:27, which confirms that we have an anointing from the Holy One.
  • By faith receive the fresh oil of the Holy Spirit according to Psalm 92:10
  • Daily hunger and thirst for the presence of God and His touch upon your life and ministry Isaiah 44:3
    For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring Zechariah 10:1
  • Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.
