“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”. Act. 10:38
Last week, we examined in this series the fact that anointing is the divine enabling grace, otherwise referred to as RAIN-POWER. This Rain Power comes about after repeated in-filling with the Holy Spirit whose continuous flow is dependent on certain conditions including love of righteousness, hatred for iniquity, walking in love and living a life of praise. May the Comforter Himself teach us and bless us more as we continue with the series in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
THE GATEWAY TO ANOINTING
Thirst is the gateway to anointing. King David, for example, craved for it – Ps. 42: 1. This craving should be a continuous one to keep the seeker constantly in the flow – Isa. 55: 1. Other great men of God such as Moses and Paul also had similar craving, which God satisfied – Ex .33: 12-14; Phil. 3: 10. After great achievements, God enjoins the Spirit-filled believer to stand – Eph. 6: 13 – as this opens doors to greater heights in the pilgrim’s journey – Phil. 3: 13-14.
Additionally, a constant realisation of one’s emptiness/ nakedness before his/her Maker triggers one into increased anointing e.g. the Lord Jesus Christ, who despite His baptism with the Holy Spirit after His water baptism at Jordan river, still craved for the fulfilment of prophecy over Him – Lk. 4: 14-21.
QUALIFICATIONS FOR AND THE EFFECTS OF ANOINTING
Those who qualify for anointing include the unworthy e.g. king Saul – I Sam. 10: 11-12, foolish (by worldly standard) I Cor. 1: 26-28, humble (self- abased) I Pet. 5: 6; Jam. 4: 6 and the just – e.g. Moses – Ex. 3: 11-12 ,Ex 4: 10-12.
Talking about the effects, the anointing transforms the believer. He becomes “another person” as it were, e.g. King Saul – I Sam. 10: 6. When backed up with biblical fasting, it speeds up the spirit of man – Isa. 58: 1-8 – thus increasing the flow of anointing and making difficult cases a walkover – Matt. 17: 21. Consider the fasting lives of great men such as Paul and Moses – 2 Cor. 11: 27; Ex. 24: 18; Ex. 34: 29-35.
Brethren, do not rest when you should be doing exploit for God. As the Lord satisfied the thirst for anointing of David, He can do likewise for you. Do not write off yourself but come before God as you are and be sure He will satisfy you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
– God will satisfy a sincere groaning and desire for anointing.
– It takes an anointed vessel to desire nothing but the presence of the Lord all the time, therefore, desire anointing.
– Lord, satisfy me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually today, in Jesus’ name.
– Satisfy me today, oh Lord, as I seek you early.
– As you satisfy me today with your abundance of grace, my mouth shall be full of laughter and I will praise you.
– Your word is truth; I shall certainly be a partaker of your good news today.
– My cup shall overflow.
Thank You Jesus!
