Anointed to overflow
The steps towards this anointing
37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.
38 "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ’From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ "
2 Kings 3:16-17 16 He said, "Thus says the LORD, ’Make this valley full of trenches.’ 17 "For thus says the LORD, ’You shall not see wind nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you shall drink, both you and your cattle and your beasts.
Zechariah 4:2-2 He said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3 also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side."
2 Kings 2:9 9 When they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you." And Elisha said, "Please, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."
The steps need to take to receive this anointing.
5. Before you pour into the vessel you must shut the door behind you: 2 Kings 4:5
5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons; they were bringing the vessels to her and she poured. 6 When the vessels were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another vessel." And he said to her, "There is not one vessel more." And the oil stopped.
There are many distractions from pouring the oil to the jars. The oil is available and need to be poured to the other vessels. Only fill up to your desire and commitment.
A. Shut the door behind you. But before you pour, you need to close the door and start to pray. So the oil can pour in to the empty vessels. What ever is taking the concentration away for God need to be shut. What ever hinders you from pouring the oil to the vessels need to be shut.
6. Before the overflow could begin there needs to be worship: 2 Kings 3:20
Digging done, praying done, faith was there, received the word, work done, planning done, the water did not started to flow until the sacrifice took place next morning. 20 It happened in the morning about the time of offering the sacrifice, that behold, water came by the way of Edom, and the country was filled with water.
Church needs to become a greater worshiping church for this anointing to flow to the community. I know that we are a worshiping church; I know that we serve God faithfully. At the same time I want to remind you that this New Year we need to go higher and higher to the greater level in worship. When we worship our Lord, the water will fill the valley, streets, homes, and hearts of the people in this city. When you worship your children, families, husbands, wife, neighbor will be filled with this anointing.
7. You need to continue pour to the vessels. 2 King 4:5
You need to continue pouring until your mission accomplished, until every homes are full, until every person receive this anointing, until every broken families come to the Lord. When you stop pouring it will stop. The well, which never used in season will dry up, the ditches in the desert, if you not draw will stop flowing. The resources, anointing, ministry and all the gifts and fruits must be used. If you do not use the well, it will dry away. The gift will dry out if you do not use, the prayer life will stop if you are limiting you into your own personal life.
8. When the ditches overflow it will become your deliverance
A. Water came thought the desert – what ever and where ever the desert are of your life and community, this water will over flow
B. Enough to quench the thirst. For all the people in the desert and the valley.
C. The Prophet said to the widow that go and sell it and pay your debt.
D. For your own breakthrough.
9. This over flow will cause you enemies’ destruction. 2 Kings 3:22-23
22 They rose early in the morning, and the sun shone on the water, and the Moabites saw the water opposite them as red as blood.
23 Then they said, "This is blood; the kings have surely fought together, and they have slain one another. Now therefore, Moab, to the spoil!" You might not have the power and strength to stand on the way of this enemy. But God will cause this overflow will for the destruction of your enemies. The enemies, who try to take you over, try to destroy; when this overflow of anointing comes through your life it will cause the enemy to be destroy itself.
