“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10: 19
Previous study emphasised the gateway to anointing, who qualifies for it and the effects on the recipients. Hopefully, we must be flowing in anointing by now, rich enough to prepare us for battles and assure us of victories. May the Comforter continue to enrich our spirit man in Jesus’ name. Amen.
ANOINTING FOR WARFARE
All genuinely born again Christians, by our calling, are daily involved in spiritual warfare – Eph. 6: 10-12. In every spiritual battle, however, there is always a Lord mighty in battle to confront it on behalf of the Christian warrior – Ps. 24: 8. His might can be engaged in any battle through the following:
- The Holy Spirit, resting on the word of God inside a believer, brings the enemy under his feet – Dan. 11: 32; Jn. 8:32. The word spoken creates a way of escape for the believer – Heb. 2:3. These words are sharp and quick – Mt. 28:20; 1 Jn. 4: 4; Pro. 24: 5. The believers of old, as well as the contemporary ones with the true and accurate knowledge of their God, never lose any battle. For example,
David defeated Goliath – I Sam. 17: 36-37. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego defied Nebuchadnezzar – Dan. 3: 16-18. Daniel survived the lions’ den – Dan. 6: 21-22 and Paul and Silas in prison – Acts. 16: 25-29.
- Ps. 125: 1-3. Man easily becomes a victim of what he fears – Job. 3: 25 – but confidence triggers anointing in battle. It is built on:
(ii) Ever-abiding presence of God – Matt. 28: 2.
(iii) The Name of Jesus. The anointed Name of Jesus, which means Saviour from all harassment of the enemy – Phil. 2: 9-11.
(iv) The voice of the Lord – Ps. 29: 5, which can never be withstood by any obstacle, no matter how strong.
ANOINTING FOR VICTORY
The anointing backing up the believer constantly grants resounding victories. e.g. Samson conquered each time the Spirit of the Lord came upon him – Judg. 14: 19. David, the man after God’s heart, right from the day he was anointed fought battles but never lost any because of the anointing – I Sam. 16: 3. The Lord Jesus Christ is also a perfect example of resounding victories. His mission was to destroy the works of Satan – I Jn. 3: 8. He conquered the hosts of hell – Mk. 1: 24, and the seas – Matt. 8: 27, death – Lk. 7: 14; Jn. 11: 43 and physical assailants (obviously possessed by the demons of accusation and murder) – Jn. 18: 3-6. It was the anointing that typified the tribe of Judah as the conquering tribe – Gen. 49: 8-12.
The Lord Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and every born again child of God automatically belongs to the conquering tribe with the conquering anointing –Rev. 5: 5; Eph. 5: 8; 2 Cor. 2: 14. This ever-conquering anointing, manifests in fearlessness as a weapon of conquest. It also uses absolute obedience to divine instructions as weapon of conquest – 2 Tim. 1: 7; Jn. 8: 28
Assurance of victory in any battle of life is the promise of the ever-conquering Lord Jesus to every truly born-again Christian. Engage His MIGHT now in whatever battle that is confronting you and obtain your victory.
1. What is the confronting anointing in warfare?
2. How do you engage this might of the Lord in battle?
3. Prove from the Bible that the Lord Jesus Christ and truly born-again Christians are rightful possessors of ever conquering comforting anointing.
– By the Comforter, we have peace, joy and victory.
– We shall overcome and reign.
– Whoever the Lord commissions by His power always become an overcomer.
–My Commander – in – Chief, my Chief Commissioner, will never leave me nor forsake me.
– As I willingly obey my Lord, He will give me power to attain to the end.
– I am persuaded because Jesus in me is greater than any circumstance.
– The anointed victor is not a loser after all. He shall have a new name in Heaven.
