INTRODUCTION
What is anointing? What are the conditions for maintaining the flow of anointing? May the Comforter teach and bless us in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

 

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. WHAT IS ANOINTING?
2. CONDITIONS FOR MAINTAINING THE FLOW

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS ANOINTING?
Anointing is the outflow of the Holy Spirit through a sanctified vessel. It is a divine enabling grace – Acts. 4: 5-20. It is likened unto Rain – Zech. 10: 1; Joel. 2:23, but it is neither the “WELL” of water springing up into everlasting life… Jn .4:14, nor the flowing “RIVERS” of living water… Jn. 7: 38 – for these are referring to the operations of the Holy Ghost at the new birth and at baptism of believers (not of water) respectively. This is the Rain of the POWER of God from above to increase the water levels of both the “WELL” and the “River” to bring about the overflow –Lk. 4:18-19. The anointing determines the volume of water in the rivers, which in turn determines the functions to which they can be put.

 

 

 

 
Similarly, for example, the level of anointing in a man determines the number of people he can carry along or his productivity as a man of God e.g. compare – Acts. 2: 41 with Acts 4: 8-32 when three thousand and multitudes of people received Christ respectively after baptism in the Holy Ghost. The Lord Jesus, as a perfect example, came under strong anointing and His fame went abroad – Acts. 10: 38. Anointing makes the Christian life active and full of results. As it were, it enthrones the believer – Jn. 14: 12; I Pet .2: 9; Rev. 1: 6. The anointing breaks every yoke of the devil and demolishes any mountain etc – Isa. 10: 27.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CONDITIONS FOR MAINTAINING THE FLOW
1. Love for righteousness, hatred for iniquity.

The Lord Jesus never ran out of anointing because He loved righteousness and hated iniquity – Ps. 45: 6-7; Jn. 14: 30; 2 Cor. 5: 21, Ps. 51:10.

 

Sin places a limit on anointing. Paul, a successful Apostle, was no exception – I Thess. 2: 10. God enjoins us to “DO” righteousness also – I Jn. 3: 7.

 

 

 
2. Walking in Love.

If a believer is to constantly flow in anointing, love for God, himself, the ministry, the church and people in general must be paramount. A release of fresh anointing always followed the compassionate feelings of the Lord Jesus – Jn. 11: 35-44, Mk. 6: 34-41.

 

 

 

 
3. Living a life of praise.

A life of praise increases the flow of anointing. Murmuring and complaints keep anointing far away so do not engage in either e.g. the journey that would have taken the anointed Israel forty days lasted forty years because of murmuring – Josh. 5: 6.

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
All true believers that want to succeed in the pilgrim’s way must equally desire ever- flowing anointing. The Kingdom of God is not in words but in the demonstration of the Spirit and power. Samuel was a highly anointed man of God that did not allow any of his words to fall to the ground – I Sam. 3: 19. Pray for your anointing now in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

 

 

 

QUESTIONS
1. Define anointing.
2. Explain anointing as the rain of power.
3. What are the conditions for maintaining the flow of anointing?

 

 

 

 
I Sam. 12: 3-4

– The anointing in the life of any true minister of God separates him into a divine position of integrity that no one can query.

 

 

 

 

 
Ex. 29: 36

– Not only is God interested in the sanctification of the altar of God but also the anointing as well.

 

 

 
Ex. 30: 26

– It is good that every sanctuary of God be anointed so that God can be there.

 

 

 
Ex. 40: 10

– An anointing service sanctifies vessels unto honour for the master’s use.

 

 

 
Lev. 8: 11

– God is a respecter of procedure. He wants to anoint you too.

 

 
Num. 7: 1

– Every vessel of honour must be anointed.

 
Lev. 8: 30

– Priests must be anointed.
