The Purpose of the Anointing

Download Today's Audio ☞ bit.ly/aud2152

Acts 10:38 (KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

God promises the anointing to everyone He calls for a specific office or responsibility. This makes such a difference from the rest of the people as such becomes not only consecrated to God but also empowered by God. While many symbols such as anointing oil were used to typify the selection and anointing of God upon a man, scriptures show us that the anointing is a person. It is not a feeling, it is actually the indwelling and abode of a person into the one set apart for God. The anointing is the Holy Spirit. (1John 2:20,27)

To those God chooses He anoints with the Holy Spirit.

The anointing in the life of Jesus was to fulfill God’s will and mandate, to destroy the works of the devil in the lives of men and to bring men to the knowledge of God.
The Holy Spirit we have been anointed with isn’t different.

Isaiah 10:27:  And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

As men of old were anointed with the Holy Spirit so they could carry out the will of God, God has anointed us with the Holy Spirit so we can carry out His will in the nations. One of the first proofs of the incoming of the Holy Spirit in the early church was men speaking in the different languages of men. This means the Holy Spirit has come to enable us to reach out to all nations, people groups, and languages.

How well are we maximizing the anointing we have received. The anointing of the Holy Spirit enabled Jesus to destroy the works of the devil in His day and to purchase the salvation of all men. What has the anointing of the Holy Spirit enabled you to achieve? Has it been used for amassing wealth, getting titles and taking advantage of weak and helpless souls or has it enabled you to engage the nations, bringing many men into sonship with Christ?

  Prayer: Lord, this year, please help me make the most of your anointing upon me for your kingdom advancement. Amen.
