What is the anointing of Holy Spirit? We need the power of the Holy Spirit, we need the anointing of the Holy Spirit. In order for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to flow, we need unity in the church. The anointing is for everyone and it is for God’s work. If anyone is facing challenges in work, relationship or home-you need the anointing. It means God is with you, God is walking with you.
What is anointing? Chrisma -Anointing -Special endowment of the Holy Spirit.
I would like to appeal to the Charismatic and the conservatives to listen to my sharing. God is going to do a new thing and stop looking at the past. Stop quenching the Holy Spirit. Stop being weird and be godly and orderly. Stop resisting the Holy Spirit and be renewed and revived.
In the scriptures (John 20:22, Acts 2:4, Psalm 20:5-7), we are called to be anointed. It is not just for a special group of people. We all have the same Holy Spirit. We can fall out of our anointing when we stop walking with the Holy Spirit. It happened to King Saul.
What does it mean to walk in the Spirit? Galatians 5:16-17. To be occupied, to lead by laying hold of. It is to fall in love with the Holy Spirit again and again. Galatians 5:25- The word “Live”-To live, to breathe, be among the living, not lifeless, not dead, but alive. Are you desperate for the Holy Spirit? To walk-it is to march in syn as though in army. Be filled with the Holy Spirit- Ephesians 5:18 to be full, to be fulfilled, to complete.
The purpose of the anointing
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me [a]to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are [b]oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”-Luke 4:18-19
Salvation-to preach the gospel
Inner or emotional healing- heal the brokenhearted
Breaking bondages-proclaim liberty to the captives-both physical and spiritual healing
Do you know that we believers can be oppressed as we opened the door to the devil? God can bring healing, restoration, freeing oppression.
