ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT​​

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT​​

Anointed by the Spirit before we go on I like to define the word Anointing and Spirit. Anointing is the ritual act of pouring aromatic oil over a person’s head or entire body. By extension, the term is also applied to related acts of sprinkling, dousing, or smearing a person or object with any perfumed oil, milk, butter, or other fat. ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Spirit comes from the Latin word for “breath,” and like breath, spirit is considered a fundamental part of being alive. … We also use spirit to mean “the general mood or intent,” like when you tell your former enemy, “I approach you in the spirit of kindness.”

You have the anointing of God flowing through you when God’s heart touches another person’s heart through your heart. The anointing of God is the Holy Spirit. He flows as a river of love, from the throne of grace, through the hearts of believers, bringing life to all that receive His touch.

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE THAT GOD ANOINTS

God anoints people that love Him more than they love their own lives, and that love others as themselves. As we open our hearts to love others God’s anointing flows through us. When we close our hearts to others and grieve the Holy Spirit the flow stops.

1 John 3:17, But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him?

Proverbs 4:23, Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.

HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTING IS TO DEMONSTRATE GOD’S LOVE AND POWER

The anointing of the Holy Spirit is given through people to demonstrate God’s love and power. Christ means the Anointed One. Because Christ is in us the same anointing that He had on earth we also have.

Isaiah 61:1-3; Luke 4:18-19, The Spirit of the Lord is on me. He has chosen me to tell good news to the poor. He sent me to tell prisoners that they are free and to tell the blind that they can see again. He sent me to free those who have been treated badly  and to announce that the time has come for the Lord to show his kindness.

WHY IS THE ANOINTING GIVEN

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to preach the Gospel to the poor

  1. The anointing is given to heal and restore people
  2. The anointing is given to proclaim freedom to the captives
  3. The anointing is given to open blind eyes.
  4. The anointing is given to set people free.
  5. The anointing flows in God’s timing and proclaims God’s timing.

ANOINTING IS GIVEN TO THOSE THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to preach the Gospel to the poor, to bring the revelation of God’s love to those who are seeking for Him.

God’s anointing flows to those who are hungry for a touch from His Holy Spirit. The anointing has less to do with the person that it flows through than it does with the person who receives it, and the One who sent it, God Almighty.

BLESSED ARE FOR THOSE WHO QUEST FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Luke 6:19-20, Everyone was trying to touch him, because power was coming out from him. Jesus healed them all.

Jesus looked at his followers and said, Great blessings belong to you who are poor. God’s kingdom belongs to you.

Matthew 5:3, Great blessings belong to those who know they are spiritually in need. God’s kingdom belongs to them.

DOES THE ANOINTING STIFLE PEOPLE WHEN NOT RECEIVED? ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing can be stifled if the people refuse to receive it from the person that God is sending it through. Things such as pride, envy, bitterness, and un-forgiveness against an anointed person can prevent the receiver from accepting it. The anointed person must go to people that can receive it.

Matthew 13:57-58, So they had a problem accepting him. But Jesus said to them, People everywhere give honor to a prophet, but in his own town or in his own home a prophet does not get any honor.

Jesus did not do many miracles there, because the people did not believe in him.

Matthew 10:13-14, If the people in that home welcome you, they are worthy of your peace. May they have the peace you wished for them.

But if they don’t welcome you, they are not worthy of your peace. Take back the peace you wished for them.

And if the people in a home or a town refuse to welcome you or listen to you, then leave that place and shake the dust off your feet.

DOES ANOINTING GIVEN FOR HEALING AND RESTORING PEOPLE? ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to heal and restore people

Acts 10:36-38, God has spoken to the people of Israel. He sent them the Good News that peace has come through Jesus Christ, the Lord of all people.

You know what has happened all over Judea. It began in Galilee after John told the people they needed to be baptized.

You know about Jesus from Nazareth. God made him the Messiah by giving him the Holy Spirit and power.

Jesus went everywhere doing good for people. He healed those who were ruled by the devil, showing that God was with him.

DOES ANOINTING GIVEN TO PROCLAIM FREEDOM TO CAPTIVE?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to proclaim freedom to the captives

2 Timothy 2:24-26, As a servant of the Lord, you must not argue. You must be kind to everyone. You must be a good teacher, and you must be patient.

You must gently teach those who don’t agree with you. Maybe God will let them change their hearts so that they can accept the truth.

The devil has trapped them and now makes them do what he wants. But maybe they can wake up to see what is happening and free themselves from the devil’s trap.

DOES ANOINTING GIVEN TO OPEN THE EYES OF THE BLIND?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to open blind eyes

2 Corinthians 4:3-4, The Good News that we tell people may be hidden, but it is hidden only to those who are lost.

The ruler of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They cannot see the light of the Good News-the message about the divine greatness of Christ. Christ is the one who is exactly like God.

Revelation 3:18, I advise you to buy gold from me-gold made pure in fire. Then you will be rich. I tell you this: Buy clothes that are white. Then you will be able to cover your shameful nakedness. I also tell you to buy medicine to put on your eyes. Then you will be able to see.

DOES ANOINTING GIVEN TO SET PEOPLE FREE?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to set people free

Isaiah 10:27, He will take away the troubles Assyria brought you-troubles that are like heavy weights carried with a yoke on your neck. But that yoke will be taken off your neck. The burden will be lifted from your shoulders.

John 8:36, So if the Son makes you free, you are really free.

DOES ANOINTING FLOWS GOD’S TIMING
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing flows in God’s timing, and also proclaims God’s timing

Ephesians 2:10, God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us new people so that we would spend our lives doing the good things he had already planned for us to do.

John 8:28-29, So he said to them, You will lift up the Son of Man. Then you will know that I AM. You will know that whatever I do is not by my own authority. You will know that I say only what the Father has taught me.

The one who sent me is with me. I always do what pleases him. So he has not left me alone.

DOES DOES ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT A GIFT FROM GOD?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God

John 4:10, Jesus answered, “You don’t know what God can give you. And you don’t know who I am, the one who asked you for a drink. If you knew, you would have asked me, and I would have given you living water.”

John 4:13-14, Jesus answered, Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again.

But anyone who drinks the water I give will never be thirsty again. The water I give people will be like a spring flowing inside them. It will bring them eternal life.”

John 7:37-39, The last day of the festival came. It was the most important day. On that day Jesus stood up and said loudly, “Whoever is thirsty may come to me and drink.

If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow out from their heart. That is what the Scriptures say.

Jesus was talking about the Spirit. The Spirit had not yet been given to people, because Jesus had not yet been raised to glory. But later, those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 1:20-22, The yes to all of God’s promises is in Christ. And that is why we say “Amen” through Christ to the glory of God.

And God is the one who makes you and us strong in Christ. God is also the one who chose us for his work.

He put his mark on us to show that we are his. Yes, he put his Spirit in our hearts as the first payment that guarantees all that he will give us.

DOES ANOINTING GIVES WISDOM?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing gives wisdom

1 John 2:20, You have the gift that the Holy One gave you. So you all know the truth.

1 John 2:27, Christ gave you a special gift. You still have this gift in you. So you don’t need anyone to teach you. The gift he gave you teaches you about everything. It is a true gift, not a false one. So continue to live in Christ, as his gift taught you.

Isaiah 11:2, The LORD’s Spirit will always be with that new king to give him wisdom, understanding, guidance, and power. The Spirit will help him know and respect the LORD.

Daniel 12:3, The wise people will shine as bright as the sky. Those who teach others to live right will shine like stars forever and ever.

Psalm 90:12, Teach us how short our lives are so that we can become wise.

Proverbs 11:30, What good people produce is like a life-giving tree. Those who are wise give new life to others.

DOES ANOINTING FLOWS FROM  HEART AND PENETRATE OTHER PEOPLE’S HEART ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is the river of life that flows from the throne through your heart and penetrates other people’s hearts.

Psalm 36:7-9, Nothing is more precious than your loving kindness. All people can find protection close to you.

They get strength from all the good things in your house. You let them drink from your wonderful river.

The fountain of life flows from you. Your light lets us see light.

Psalm 46:4, There is a river whose streams bring happiness to God’s city, to the holy city of God Most High.

Revelation 21:6, The one on the throne said to me, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give free water from the spring of the water of life to anyone who is thirsty.

Revelation 1:1-2, This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must happen soon. And Christ sent his angel to show it to his servant John,

who has told everything he saw. It is the truth that Jesus Christ told him; it is the message from God.

Revelation 1:17, When I saw him, I fell down at his feet like a dead man. He put his right hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last.

Revelation 22:1-2,17, The angel showed me the river of the water of life, clear as crystal. The river flows from the throne of God and the Lamb.

It flows down the middle of the street of the city. The tree of life is on each side of the river, and it produces fruit every month, twelve times a year. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations.

Revelation 22:17, The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Everyone who hears this should also say, “Come!” All who are thirsty may come; they can have the water of life as a free gift if they want it.

DOES RIVERS OF GOD’S ANOINTING INTENSIFIES?

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

As we continue in the river of God’s anointing it intensifies until we are carried by it.

Ezekiel 47:1-10, The man led me back to the entrance of the Temple. I saw water coming out from under the east gate of the Temple. (The front of the Temple is on the east side.) The water flowed down from under the south end of the Temple and ran south of the altar.

[2] The man led me out through the north gate and then around the outside to the outer gate on the east side. The water was flowing out on the south side of the gate.

[3] The man walked east with a tape measure in his hand. He measured 1000 cubits. Then he told me to walk through the water at that place. The water was only ankle deep.

[4] He measured another 1000 cubits. Then he told me to walk through the water at that place. There the water came up to my knees. Then he measured another 1000 cubits and told me to walk through the water at that place. There the water was waist deep.

[5] He measured another 1000 cubits, but there the water was too deep to cross. It had become a river. The water was deep enough to swim in. It was a river that was too deep to cross.

[6] Then the man said to me, “Son of man, did you pay close attention to the things you saw?” Then the man led me back along the side of the river.

[7] As I walked back along the side of the river, I saw many trees on both sides of the water.

[8] He said to me, “This water flows east, down to the Arabah Valley.

[9] This water flows into the Dead Sea so that the water in that sea becomes fresh and clean. There are many fish in this water, and all kinds of animals live where this river goes.

[10] You can see fishermen standing by the river all the way from En Gedi to En Eglaim. You can see them throwing their fishing nets and catching many kinds of fish. There are as many kinds of fish in the Dead Sea as there are in the Mediterranean Sea.

DOES ANOINTING GIVEN TO INTERCEDE FOR PEOPLE
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is given to intercede for people

Isaiah 59:16-21, He did not see anyone speak up for the people. He was shocked to see that no one stood up for them. So with his own power he saved them. His desire to do what is right gave him strength.

He put on the armor of goodness, the helmet of salvation, the uniform of punishment, and the coat of strong love.

He will give his enemies the punishment they deserve. They will feel his anger. He will punish all his enemies. People along the coast will get the punishment they deserve.

People from the west to the east will fear the LORD and respect his Glory. He will come quickly, like a fast-flowing river driven by a wind from the LORD.

Then a redeemer will come to Zion to save the people of Jacob who have turned away from sin.

The LORD says, “As for me, this is the agreement that I will make with these people. I promise my Spirit that I put on you and my words that I put in your mouth will never leave you. They will be with you and your children and your children’s children, for now and forever.

Isaiah 60:1-2, Jerusalem, get up and shine! Your Light is coming! The Glory of the LORD will shine on you.

Darkness now covers the earth, and the people are in darkness. But the LORD will shine on you, and his Glory will appear over you.

DOES THE FREE FLOW ANOINTING OF GOD’S LOVE BRINGS JOY TO GOD
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The free flowing anointing of God’s love brings joy to God and that joy is felt by the person He flows through. Love is the joy we get from God when we put His benefit and the benefit of another person before our own.

Psalm 45:3-7, Put on your sword, mighty warrior, so impressive in your splendid uniform.

Go out in your greatness to win the victory for what is true and right. Let us see the amazing things you can do with your powerful right arm.

Your sharp arrows will go deep into the hearts of your enemies, who will fall to the ground in front of you.

God, your kingdom will last forever. You use your authority for justice.

You love what is right and hate what is wrong. So God, your God, chose you to be king, giving you more joy and honor than anyone like you.

DOES ANOINTING BRING LOVE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS?

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

If you are anointed you will love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.

Isaiah 58:6-12, I will tell you the kind of day I want-a day to set people free. I want a day that you take the burdens off others. I want a day when you set troubled people free and you take the burdens from their shoulders.

I want you to share your food with the hungry. I want you to find the poor who don’t have homes and bring them into your own homes. When you see people who have no clothes, give them your clothes! Don’t hide from your relatives when they need help.”

If you do these things, your light will begin to shine like the light of dawn. Then your wounds will heal. Your “Goodness” will walk in front of you, and the Glory of the LORD will come following behind you.

Then you will call to the LORD, and he will answer you. You will cry out to him, and he will say, “Here I am.” Stop causing trouble and putting burdens on people. Stop saying things to hurt people or accusing them of things they didn’t do.

Feel sorry for hungry people and give them food. Help those who are troubled and satisfy their needs. Then your light will shine in the darkness. You will be like the bright sunshine at noon.

The LORD will always lead you and satisfy your needs in dry lands. He will give strength to your bones. You will be like a garden that has plenty of water, like a spring that never goes dry.

Your cities have been destroyed for many years, but you will rebuild them and their foundations will last for a long time. You will be called “Fence Fixer” and “Builder of Roads and Houses”.

IS THERE GREAT PLEASURE AND JOY IN ANOINTING?

ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Although there is great pleasure and joy in the anointing, because it is the presence of God, we are not to seek the joy, we are to seek God, and the benefit of others, the joy is a natural result of these things. The anointing is not given for the vessel it flows through; it is given for the one it flows to.

Psalm 16:11, You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you will bring complete happiness. Being at your right side will make me happy forever.

James 4:3, Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.

IS EVERYONE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST ANOINTED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT? ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Everyone in the body of Christ is anointed with the Holy Spirit, and we all need to give from God’s anointing to each other, and we all need to be able to receive the anointing that comes through other Christians.

1 Corinthians 12:4-12, There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit.

There are different ways to serve, but we serve the same Lord.

And there are different ways that God works in people, but it is the same God who works in all of us to do everything.

Something from the Spirit can be seen in each person. The Spirit gives this to each one to help others.

The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak with wisdom. And the same Spirit gives another person the ability to speak with knowledge.

The same Spirit gives faith to one person and to another he gives gifts of healing.

The Spirit gives to one person the power to do miracles, to another the ability to prophesy, and to another the ability to judge what is from the Spirit and what is not. The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak in different kinds of languages, and to another the ability to interpret those languages.

One Spirit, the same Spirit, does all these things. The Spirit decides what to give each one.

A person has only one body, but it has many parts. Yes, there are many parts, but all those parts are still just one body. Christ is like that too.

Ephesians 4:11-16, And that same Christ gave these gifts to people: He made some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to go and tell the Good News, and some to care for and teach God’s people.

Christ gave these gifts to prepare God’s holy people for the work of serving, to make the body of Christ stronger.

This work must continue until we are all joined together in what we believe and in what we know about the Son of God. Our goal is to become like a full-grown man-to look just like Christ and have all his perfection.

Then we will no longer be like babies. We will not be people who are always changing like a ship that the waves carry one way and then another. We will not be influenced by every new teaching we hear from people who are trying to deceive us-those who make clever plans and use every kind of trick to fool others into following the wrong way.

No, we will speak the truth with love. We will grow to be like Christ in every way. He is the head,

and the whole body depends on him. All the parts of the body are joined and held together, with each part doing its own work. This causes the whole body to grow and to be stronger in love.

ISN’T THE ANOINTING OF HOLY SPIRIT SACRED?
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

The anointing is sacred, the anointing is the Holy Spirit, and all believers in Christ have the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We must be careful what we say about our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Matthew 12:31, So I tell you, people can be forgiven for every sinful thing they do and for every bad thing they say against God. But anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

1 Chronicles 16:22-24, He said, “Don’t hurt my chosen people. Don’t hurt my prophets.”

Let the whole world sing to the LORD! Tell the good news every day about how he saves us.

Tell all the nations how wonderful he is! Tell people everywhere about the amazing things he does.

CHOSEN BY THE LORD TO ANOINT
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

1 Samuel 16:10-13 Jesse showed seven of his sons to Samuel. But Samuel said to Jesse, “The LORD has not chosen any of these men.”

Then he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?” Jesse answered, “No, I have another son-my youngest, but he is out taking care of the sheep.” Samuel said, “Send for him. Bring him here. We won’t sit down to eat until he arrives.”

Jesse sent someone to get his youngest son. This son was a good-looking, healthy young man. He was very handsome. The LORD said to Samuel, “Get up and anoint him. He is the one.”

Samuel took the horn with the oil in it, and poured the special oil on Jesse’s youngest son in front of his brothers. The Spirit of the LORD came on David with great power from that day on. Then Samuel went back home to Ramah.

LED BY THE SPIRIT
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Ezekiel 3:10-14, Then God said to me, “Son of man, listen to every word I say to you and remember them.

Then go to all of your people in exile and tell them, ‘This is what the Lord GOD says ….’ They will not listen, and they will not stop sinning, but you must still tell them my message.”

Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard a voice behind me. It was very loud, like thunder. It said, “Blessed is the Glory of the LORD!”

Then the wings of the living beings began moving. The wings made a very loud noise as they touched each other, and the wheels in front of them began making a noise as loud as thunder.

The Spirit lifted me and took me away. I was very sad and upset in my spirit, but I felt the LORD’s power in me.

BORN OF THE SPIRIT​​ (YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN)
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

John 3:1-8, There was a man named Nicodemus, one of the Pharisees. He was an important Jewish leader.

[2] One night he came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, we know that you are a teacher sent from God. No one can do these miraculous signs that you do unless they have God’s help.”

[3] Jesus answered, “I assure you, everyone must be born again. Anyone who is not born again cannot be in God’s kingdom.”

[4] Nicodemus said, “How can a man who is already old be born again? Can he go back into his mother’s womb and be born a second time?”

[5] Jesus answered, “Believe me when I say that everyone must be born from water and the Spirit. Anyone who is not born from water and the Spirit cannot enter God’s kingdom.

[6] The only life people get from their human parents is physical. But the new life that the Spirit gives a person is spiritual.

[7] Don’t be surprised that I told you, ‘You must be born again.’

[8] The wind blows wherever it wants to. You hear it, but you don’t know where it is coming from or where it is going. It is the same with everyone who is born from the Spirit.”

MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

John 16:5-15, Now I am going back to the one who sent me. And none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’

But you are filled with sadness because I have told you all this.

Let me assure you, it is better for you that I go away. I say this because when I go away I will send the Helper to you. But if I did not go, the Helper would not come.

“When the Helper comes, he will show the people of the world how wrong they are about sin, about being right with God, and about judgment.

He will prove that they are guilty of sin, because they don’t believe in me.

He will show them how wrong they are about how to be right with God. The Helper will do this, because I am going to the Father. You will not see me then.

And he will show them how wrong their judgment is, because their leader has already been condemned.

“I have so much more to tell you, but it is too much for you to accept now.

But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth. He will not speak his own words. He will speak only what he hears and will tell you what will happen in the future.

The Spirit of truth will bring glory to me by telling you what he receives from me.

All that the Father has is mine. That is why I said that the Spirit will tell you what he receives from me.

WITNESS OF THE SPIRIT
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Romans 8:12-17, So, my brothers and sisters, we must not be ruled by our sinful selves. We must not live the way our sinful selves want.

If you use your lives to do what your sinful selves want, you will die spiritually. But if you use the Spirit’s help to stop doing the wrong things you do with your body, you will have true life.

The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them.

The Spirit that we received is not a spirit that makes us slaves again and causes us to fear. The Spirit that we have makes us God’s chosen children. And with that Spirit we cry out, ” Abba, Father.”

And the Spirit himself speaks to our spirits and makes us sure that we are God’s children.

If we are God’s children, we will get the blessings God has for his people. He will give us all that he has given Christ. But we must suffer like Christ suffered. Then we will be able to share his glory.

FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT​​
ANOINTED BY THE SPIRIT

Ephesians 5:15-21, So be very careful how you live. Live wisely, not like fools.

I mean that you should use every opportunity you have for doing good, because these are evil times.

So don’t be foolish with your lives, but learn what the Lord wants you to do.

Don’t be drunk with wine, which will ruin your life, but be filled with the Spirit.

Encourage each other with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord.

Always give thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Be willing to serve each other out of respect for Christ.
