Word for Today:Anointing is crucial!
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“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” (Acts 10:38).
Anointing, which is an empowerment from above is vital for your Christian walk with Jesus Christ to be effective. If you have not yet been baptised by the Holy Spirit, it’s time to fast and pray until you have received the Holy Spirit. Without empowerment , as Christians, we become vulnerable. Jesus Himself needed to be baptised for His ministry to flourish as per our memory verse.
Jesus Christ has promised every true believer this empowerment /anointing:
“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” ( Acts 1:8).
Brethren, anointing is real. Anointing will enable you to operate in the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Prior to my anointing on the 10th February 2008, I was relatively naive spiritually. Now when witches, wizards and evil spirits see me, it’s either they run or turn their eyes away from direct contact with me due to FIRE. Anointing opens up your spiritual ears and eyes to perceive things in the spirit realm.
Jesus Christ is the one that promised you true anointing but you first of all have to embrace Him. He gives in agreement with His Father’s promise:
“And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” ( Luke 24:49).
Remember that your spiritual city of Jerusalem is your place of grace, mercy, fasting, prayer, righteousness, holiness, humility, purity and integrity. If you have already been anointed, you can ask for more and more anointing. King David in the Bible was anointed three times.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Father, please anoint and empower us with your Holy Spirit afresh so that we can be effective in your kingdom in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
