The Anointing- the Results Romans 8:9-10NLT
The anointing is for all believers, and for every believer to serve. This anointing comes into activity as we serve- period.
For every believer, sadly especially Pentecostal believer’s very little is said, or honored about Pentecost. Pentecostal Sunday is May the 27th. Pentecostal Sunday is as important to Christianity as Jesus’ birth and His resurrection.
Most traditional church’s pay tribute to this date without understanding its importance. Many try to gain knowledge only of this event, but Pentecostal Sunday is as important today as it was for the early church.
FYI: This is going to change.
This unction comes because of a promise made from Jesus. The anointing isn’t oil, or some special cloth. No, it’s a special gifts given to every believer until Jesus returns.
Romans 8: 9-10NLT But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) 10 And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you life because you have been made right with God.
AW Tozer once said, “Wise leaders should have known that the human heart cannot exist in a vacuum. If Christians are forbidden to enjoy the wine of the Spirit they will turn to the wine of the flesh....Christ died for our hearts and the Holy Spirit wants to come and satisfy them.”
If there is no evidence of the Holy Spirit living in one’s own home, no evidence of of His presence by the fruit He produces, a person has no legitimate claim to Christ as Lord and Savior.
John 15 states, that every individual will be known by their fruit. Your body is unredeemed because of sin, His Spirit is life because of righteousness. As the Holy Spirit is real within, ‘one’ cannot separate their recreative Spirit from the Holy Spirit.
The evidence or lack of evidence of the Holy Spirit is found in the book of Galatians. Paul had come into an understanding of the Spirit led life verses the sinful nature’s life.
Galatians 5:19-23NLT When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery,
hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. 22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Note: This doesn’t mean that the person who is truly born again won’t yield to their lower nature; however, this person will know right from wrong.
1 Corinthians 6:19NIV Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
