GENUINE ANOINTING COMES FROM GOD ALMIGHTY (1)
– John 1:16; Ephesians 4:11-12
No one ever did valiantly for the Lord without the anointing and no one ever got anointed without the express permission of God. As we move on with this sharing this month, I will be showing you the things God anoints.
The knowledge of what God anoints will help you to position yourself properly for genuine anointing in these last days. No human being can anoint another. Men of God can serve as pipes for the anointing but every genuine anointing comes from one source and that is the Lord God Almighty.
The Bible says out of the fullness of the anointing of Jesus Christ all of us will receive in measures. On one hand, we need to understand what God looks for before He can anoint any individual; on the other hand, what are the things that do not move God?
There is a huge difference between ‘being gifted’ and ‘being anointed’. The anointing brings the blessings of the kingdom, not giftedness. There is a difference between the Church and the Kingdom. The Church is the visible manifestation of God’s kingdom and God’s kingdom simply speaks of God’s rulership, God’s dominion, and God’s authority. The church is a means for us to enter the kingdom – an introduction to the kingdom. You may be going to church while you are not becoming part of God’s kingdom just because you don’t know what you are supposed to walk in. In the world, men celebrate things that are largely abominable before God. Don’t be a part of such an awful celebration.
ACTION: Father, help me to possess the character traits You are looking for to qualify for the anointing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
