Summary: The vagabond anointing is responsible for the lack of direction and aimlessness in so many lives. The devil himself is a vagabond and he likes to distribute that anointing.
In Genesis 4:12, we see the first example of a vagabond person. It says, "When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall thou be in the earth." Deuteronomy 21:18 - 21 says, "If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them. (That is, the person is a vagabond child) Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him and bring him out to the elders of the city and unto the gate of his place. And they shall say unto the elders of the city, this our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice, he is a glutton and a drunkard. And all the men of the street shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shall thou put evil away from among you and all Israel shall hear, and fear."
In Psalms 109:10, we see how serious the vagabond problem is. It is a terrible curse. It says, "Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places." In Acts of the apostles 19: 13- 16, we have an interesting story. It says, "Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew and chief of the priests which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of their house naked and wounded." Here, we see vagabond jews being attacked. That is the reward of the vagabond.
Now let us look at the master vagabond. Job 1: 6-7 says, "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and satan came also among them. And the Lord said unto satan, Whence comest thou. Then satan answered the Lord and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." So, all vagabond anointing is from the master vagabond. 1 Peter 5: 8 also says, "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
Luke 15:11- 15 says, "And he said, A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me and he divided unto him his living." (The younger of the two sons persuading his father to divide the estate between them while he was still alive.) And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. (He went to a far land where he lived a life of immorality and then poverty overtook him.) And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of the country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine." When he had lost everything, famine arose and he, the son of a rich man was reduced to feeding pig. This is the result of the vagabond anointing that was upon his life.
We can pick a few lessons from the experience of the prodigal son.
1. A vagabond is always a sorrowful person. Sin will bring sorrow always and it never fails to find men out. It may not be in a dramatic way but at the end of the day, the sin of a man will find him out.
2. The vagabond spirit causes demotion. The son of a rich man started to feed pigs and for a Jew brought up in a proper Jewish family, no greater humiliation can be directed at him. The job made him ceremonially unclean and brought him shame.
3. A sinner is always in a far country.
4. Vagabond people are always very selfish.
WHAT IS ANOINTING?
Anointing is a supernatural thing. It is a supernatural equipment that enables you to achieve supernatural results. It is the ability to do things without sweating. God does not have counterfeit materials neither does He give them to people. These are the last days and many evil things are happening. The Bible has a very bad picture for the last days. It says that men’s heart shall fail them for fear, many false Christs and many false prophets shall arise. Many shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money and haters of good things. The Bible also says that in the last days, the devil will increase his activities. He will release terrible spiritual bullets on the human race. Now we hear that divorce rate has gone up tremendously, boys are taking to drugs and it is now very rare to find somebody who is still a virgin at the age of 20.
