WHAT IS THE ANOINTING?
For a while now the Holy Spirit has been nudging me to write on this.
So I ask you What is the Anointing?
Is it a feeling of unction(virtue)
Or a display or burst of Power
Or is it even the manifestations of the supernatural.
Or how instantly God answers a man.
Looking through scriptures and from different accounts we would look at what exactly is the anointing.
The Holy Spirit is the Anointing…
1 John 2:20, 21,27
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.[d]
21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will[e] abide in Him.
The difference between a believer and an unbeliever is the anointing. A believer is anointed because of the indwelling Holy Spirit where as an unbeliever has no anointing because he has no relationship with Jesus. To still expect an anointing after you have been baptized by the Holy Ghost is to be delving into Witchcraftcy.
What some refer to as Deposits of Power when they pray is actually the mortification of the deeds of their flesh. Prayer helps to mortify the deeds of the flesh for a better release of the anointing(Holy Spirit) and Power. So what ever our request is as long as we pray with fervency either for boldness, for knowledge, for intimacy for souls, for power, even to an extent for our enemies we usually feel some bursts of energy.
While some prayer requests are not edifying. Most prayers have the same effect mortification of the deeds of the flesh. It is the mortification of the deeds of the flesh and our knowledge and exercise of authority that makes it look like some are more anointed than the other. (Mortification of the deeds of the flesh is different from renewal of the mind.)
The expression or the workings of the Anointing works by the law of sowing and reaping. The more you cultivate the anointing the more you get from him.
We get away with most of the Ignorant approaches to prayer we utilize, because most times God judges our intentions and not our utterances Romans: 8.26. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. That been said, the anointing who/which is the Holy Spirit flows better when the deeds of the flesh have been mortified and the mind has been renewed. The carnal flesh is a continuous hindrance to spiritual flow. Galatians: 5. 16. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
1 Corinthians: 3. 1. And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
The flesh(senses) can limit the expression of God’s Power. The receptivity to the Anointing, Functioning in the Supernatural hearing from God.
1 John: 2. 20. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 27. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
One clear thing we see here is abiding in the anointing, to abide in the anointing means to fellowship with God.
John: 14. 16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
13. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Most of the time what most people refer to has anointing is The expression of God’s Power through a man. No man has more anointing than the other as we all received the same anointing. We don’t have the same result because of how we have utilized the anointing or fellowship with The Holy Spirit
Acts: 1. 8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
I pray this day according to the riches of God’s glory that the body of Christ will be filled with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the pure and true knowledge of Jesus christ and that the eyes of our understanding is enlightened. That they may know the hope of his call and the glorious riches of the saints and the exceeding greatness of the power of God towards us who believe.
