Summary: There is a lot of talk concerning the anointing. Here are five non-negotiable points concerning it.
Psalm 92:10-15 Rev.R.B.Hughes
1Cor.1:21...Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God.
- lot of talk about the anointing....some good, bad, confusing..Yet I trust you all covet the idea of being anointed of God...
Let me declare: 1John 2:20...
"you have an anointing from the Holy One"..(an extension of Gods favor)
Anoint means: To rub on or to smear oil on..
To set apart.
rub it in: smear/make it a part of you
Few things: Anointed to an office
Anointed for service
Anointed for battle
Anointed for worship (temple items)
Exodus 30:22-33....Anointing oil recipe
Myrrh: Speaks of Calvarys love
Cinnamon: Burning Zeal
Fragrant Cane: grow erect, holy righteous living
Cassia: to stoop, bow down,submission, humility
It was holy.....perfume mixture
1. There was alot,
2. it was expensive
3. It carried a beautiful yet powerful aroma .....
NO MISTAKING WHETHER YOU WERE ANOINTED OR NOT.
WHAT DOES THE ANOINTING DO?
Ex.40:15.......makes a covenant with you
Le.7:35........releases to minister
Le.10:7........not to be taken lightly
Isa.10:27......breaks bondages..frees the sinner
sin not stain but a chain)
Jas.5:14.......heals the sick
The anointing oil in the OT is representative of the Holy Spirit today/ and then to an extent.
David cried: cast me not away ... take not thy Holy Spirit ...
*He recognized in Saul a man who although retaining all the outside symbols of kingship and position in God...He has lost the anointing of God.*
- To be a believer and not retain the Anointing of the Holy Spirit is to be rendered ineffective in the purposes of God.
The Anointing..brought to you by the letter "R"
It has to be......
- I covet the real anointing.
- Ex.30:31,32 ..... NO SUBSTITUTES!!!
* You cannot substitute the Anointing of God with works, talents, programs. The anointing must
be real!...ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM IS, YOU CAN!
John 6:63..It is the Spirit who gives life and the flesh profits NOTHING!!!
* To much time spent trying to solve supernatural problems in the natural!
- Not all sickness is natural...you will not see that person made well by medicine BUT BY THE ANOINTED BELIEVER BREAKING THE BONDAGE.
I believe in the real anointing & that is what I want.
People concerned about "renewal"....IF IT MAKES YOU JUMP, LAUGH, CRY, DANCE, SHOUT, SHAKE, RATTLE OR ROLL...If it is The REAL Anointing bring it on!!!!
This world is tired of the shams...You get a real anointing they will know!!!!!!!!
*I’M ALWAYS INTERESTED TO HEAR THAT THE LORD MOVED OR THE LORD IS MOVING ...BUT I’M MORE INTERESTED IN WHAT HE LEFT BEHIND!!
the true anointing has to be ....
- Like Elisha, when asked by Elijah what he could do for him
- (2Kings 2:9)..A double portion....
Sing that song..fill my cup...fill my pool Lord...
* In the great abundance of anointing causes less effort of the flesh...don’t have to push anyone over...
Mary...Broke the bottle pure nard....sold for more than years wages...YES RICH
Ps.133 .... talks about the anointing oil dripping off beard
The true anointing has to be ...
- JOHN 7:33...He who believes in me, as the scripture said from his inner most being shall flow rivers of living waters.
- You don’t horde the Anointing...You release it.
- Just like Mary...You break the container and let it flow.
- By the anointing Jesus breaks the yoke
- If it isn’t released it becomes like Ezek.47:11 .... like a swamp..smelly & useless!!no life
The true anointing has to be ...
- Not only pray for anointing to be real/rich/released.. BUT received!....Jesus was anointed but Judas didn’t receive it!
It has to be ..
- DON’T YOU DESIRE A RENEWAL?...tired of striving on your own?
- God gave a recipe to the Israelites because he knew they would ru out.....but they could always have more by making it Gods way.
*There is alot, it is expensive and there is no mistaking it!!
- You can go where "God is blessing" but you can be assured someone has paid the price!!! The question is WILL YOU PAY THE PRICE FOR YOUR CHURCH!!
Conclusion.....brought to you by letter "R" as well
When anointed with fresh oil...vs.10
a) Vs.11 Recognize and defeat your enemies (It’s the punch you don’t see that KO’s you)
b) Vs.12 Saints are enriched, encouraged,..."flourish!!!..Trees are symbols of strength and endurance...
