Summary: There is an anointing that God gave man but sin took it from him. The focus of the sermon is to receive a restoration of a Greater Glory through a renewal of anointing.
Acts 2 Verse 4:
Ac:2:4: And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The anointing of God flows from the Holy Spirit and, from creation man was anointed by God when he breathed his spirit into man, Ge:2:7: And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Sin removes these anointing from man until man became redeemed by the death of Jesus on The cross.
After his resurrection to the cross having appeared unto the disciples He commanded that the disciples gathered together so he could re-anoint them for a greater glory which was better than the former one that was lost as a result of sin and today you and myself a part of this anointing if only you have been born-again and spirit filled. Ac:1:2: Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:Ac:1:3: To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: Ac:1:4: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
From where we have read manifestation of the Holy Spirit (the Glory of God) came to the disciples for some reasons and you also can experience that anointing this morning.
1. They followed Jesus till the end (You have to remain born-again) – you experience God’s glory when you continue to follow, don’t look back keep following: Lu:9:62: And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
Brethren it will be too dangerous for you to turn back now.
2. They Acted instructions: Moses was able to see the glory of God by following the instruction to stand at a place by the rock. Ex:33:18: "And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory". Ex:33:21: And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock, Many of people don’t get to see the glory of God due to their disobedience and failure to follow simple instructions. You are praying for wealth and profit in business and you fail to yield to the commandment of tithe and giving, it’s not going to happen as you expected. You need peace in your marriage there is a commandment that you must yied to for it to happen There is a blessing that follows every commandment of God. Lu:6:38: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Mal:3:10: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Psalms:119:165: Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them
