Topic: THE ANOINTING IS NOT FOR SALE AND NEITHER IS IT INFLUENCED BY MONEY
Acts 8:18-24 King James Version (KJV)
18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
Beloved, the anointing that God gives to His children is not for sale. You can't buy it. He chooses who He wants to give it to and just blesses that person with it.
Beloved, as Christians we should be able to reject money anytime it comes in the wrong way or for the wrong reasons especially when it's in connection with the work of God.
Beloved when you are genuinely anointed by God and you are operating under the influence of His Spirit you can freely and boldly ask someone, no matter who to perish with their money if they decide to use it to insult or mock God like Simon the sorcerer did.
Beloved God can do anything for you or give you anything you want but He checks your mindset and the direction of your heart before he does it or not.
If your heart is not right and your mind is unstable or has the wrong motive, God will never anoint you. You can't bribe Him nor give Him any format to get Him to do what you want.
Beloved, people who have such wrong motives and direction of heart are in the gall of bitterness and the bond of iniquity.
They may look ok but deep within they are struggling and wasted, they may look free but there is a demon who influences him to do a lot of things, even those he has not thought of.
Beloved if you have wrong motives or direction in your heart and mind, repent and seek forgiveness from God. This is your only way out of that bondage.
Desire for the anointing, desire for the finances but with good heart and mind, to do exploits in the Kingdom of God to push the Kingdom Agenda.
Beloved, *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. If Jesus would be the centre and focus of your life you would follow His ways and your mindset, motives and the desires of your heart would always be right because your ultimate aim would be to please Jesus.
Prayer: Father please cause Thy Spirit to deliver me from any evil intent or desire and also lead me not to accept anything from anyone who's actions would bring disgrace to your name. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
