The Anointing

If you are a born-again believer in Jesus Christ, you have access to the greatest power supply in the universe…the anointing. The anointing of God enables you to do the impossible! 

The word “anoint” literally means to smear or rub with oil. In the Old Testament, all of God’s chosen servants (prophets, priests, and kings) were anointed with oil. (I Kings 19:16, Exo. 40:15, 2 Sam.2:4) The anointing oil was important because it consecrated and empowered them as servants of God.

 The anointing empowers us to fearlessly tell others about Jesus.
 
 

Acts 1:8 NIV
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
 

 

The anointing enables us to perform mighty signs, wonders, and miracles.

Mark 16:19-20 NIV After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and He sat at the right hand of God.
Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His Word by the signs that accompanied it.
 

 

The anointing has the power to destroy every yoke and remove every burden in our lives.

Isaiah 10:27 KJV And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
 
 

The anointing will enable us to reap in a massive end-time harvest of souls. We will show forth God’s goodness. It will be the goodness of God that will bring multitudes to repentance! (Romans 2:4)
