Summary: What God will do through those when their faith touches the anointing

Heb 11:1-6 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (2) For by it the elders obtained a good report. (3) Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (4) By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. (5) By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. (6) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Many People ask me, What is faith?

Faith - The idea that something can be made true, merely by seeing it and believing it through God.

Archie Bunkers definition of Faith "Faith is something you believe that nobody in his right mind would believe."

Through faith God’s children have subdued kingdoms,

· They have wrought righteousness,

· They have obtained promises,

· They have stopped the mouths of lions,

· Through faith God’s children have quenched the violence of fire

· They have escaped the edge of the sword,

· out of weakness they were made strong,

· Through faith God’s children have waxed valiant in fight,

· They have turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

· Through faith Women received their dead raised to life again:

· Through faith others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

· Through faith others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings,

· Through faith God’s children have been put in bonds and imprisonment:

· Through faith people of God were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

· Through faith people of God wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

· Through faith people of God have obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

Without faith it is impossible to please God!

The anointing – The capability or ability to do supernatural works through God.

1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

The anointing the supernatural ability to do supernatural works through God abides within you.

· It don’t come and go

· Its not here one day and gone tomorrow

· You can’t pray and get more anointed

· You cant fast and get more anointed

· There is nothing you can do to get more anointed.

Now before you go and start calling me a heretic and get on your little religious hobby horse and start rocking one has to understand what the Bible says and not what man has taught you.

If the anointing – The ability to the supernatural through God is in you, why aren’t there more supernatural acts being done in the church?

Two Reasons

1. Sin has blocked the anointing from flowing from you

2. Your faith has not touched the anointing

You see we already stated that it is impossible to please God with out faith.

There is no way you can please God without doing His work.

In order to do His work you have to have supernatural abilities.

To have supernatural abilities the anointing has to be released in your life.

When you faith touches the anointing watch out something is going to be released in the spirit and when released in the spirit it will be manifested for the world to see.

Turn with me to

Mar 5:24-34 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him. (25) And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, (26) And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, (27) When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. (28) For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. (29) And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. (30) 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, - Turn to your neighbor and say, “Her faith touched the anointing - turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? (31) And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? (32) And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. (33) But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. (34) And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

What is faith? Faith ,first is hearing that comes by the Word of God.In our own ability it is impossible to please him,without faith everything is sin,but with faith that comes from Him and only by and through Him,it is impossible not to please Him.Even the hearing is a gift.How can we follow any command unless we understand the words spoken to us?As Paul prayed for "a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him"Then faith is being able to hear and understand what He says,not what I want,but never the less thy will be done,on earth as it is in heaven.So then faith is believing and trusting God at His Word.
