THE ANOINTING Of GOD Excelling Beyond Expectations

Updated on January 26, 2016

Untouched vistas exist beyond the realm of us that use the triple alliance (repetition, faith, and courage).

The Invisible Impetus

Christ means Anointed. The word Christ [Christos, Greek khris-tos] translates from the Greek as to smear, rub or otherwise anoint with oil. The Hebrew word for Anoint [dashen, daw-shane] is to fattened or satisfy. The anointing is used to destroy a yoke of bondage employed by Satan and his entourage (Is. 10:27). It empowers an individual to bring about an effective change upon the earth, affecting the lives of others and enabling others to be set free. The Anointing is an offensive weapon used to conquer Satan’s Legions. Christ, the Logos and the Anointing, are all of the same substance. Anointed ones are driven! Even when enclosed or wedged between a rock and a hard place. The anointing is used to free people from bondage, because like Pharaoh, Satan never releases his slaves (Ex 5:2, Is. 14:17). Our ultimate example is Christ, who was anointed to preach, sent to heal and proclaim liberty to the captives, comfort those that mourn, give beauty for ashes and encourage many to “develop Christ-like maturity, equipping them for ministry in the church and in the world, and admonishing them to be ready to meet our Lord at His coming.” With the cross before Him, Jesus stayed the course of His mission after praying “O my father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” as a result freedom was made available to all (Matt. 26:39b).

John the Baptist

People are not born anointed, not even Nazirites. Even though there were many whom the Spirit strengthened by overshadowing in Old Testament times, John the Baptist, was the first person to be filled with the Holy Ghost. His ministry was so powerful that it began when he was a fetus. The angel spoke to his father Zacharias predicting that John would be filled in the womb. Consequently, the unborn was used to fill his mother with the Holy Ghost. And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit (NKJV Luke 1:41).

A mood of urgency for the entrance of the Messiah was set in order by John the Baptist. John’s father was Zacharias, an elder priest. He carefully followed the directions of the Angel, Gabriel after he appeared announcing the birth of his son John while he lit the incense in the temple. The angel proclaimed that his son would be great in the sight of the Lord. Furthermore, the birth of John was considered a miracle because Elizabeth, his mother, was elderly. Undoubtedly, John would receive special child rearing after his father received instruction from Gabriel and after his mother was filled with the Holy Ghost. John the Baptist was so anointed because he introduced Jesus to the world as Christ and was set apart “to make ready a people prepared for the Lord”(Luke 1:17c).

God echoes to the anointed what was said of Jesus after John baptized Him, saying “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you, him” (Matt. 17:5b). The anointing needs a functioning organ that has the capability to produce without any malice or conflicting duality, ultimately focused on securing the vision of the body of Christ into fruition. Light is shed upon an obedient spirit and a yielded vessel that is committed to the overall good of the task at hand.

Zion is Calling

A godly paradigm is personified by the precious oil that ran down Aaron’s beard and onto his priestly garments. This power is allegorized by the dew of Mount Hermon and the liquefied mist descending down Mt. Zion where God commanded the blessing (Ps. 133). God affirms his heavenly authority upon the earth in a person or as a mountain reflecting a monotheistic archetype as opposed to, for example, a corporate, democratic, or parliamentary power structure. God chooses whom He wants to anoint without an approval from a board and regardless of who may veto His authority. Those exposed to the anointing are thereby benefited from anointed, lively[chayeh, Hebrew, khaw-yeh, vigorous] fruit bearing, blood bought vessels of honor.

King David chronicled “Do not touch my anointed ones and do my prophets no harm” (I Chr. 16:22). He understood the danger of touching the one that God had anointed. After Saul pursued David a while, Saul rested, and David found Saul resting in a cave. His loyal companions urged him to kill Saul but David comprehended the principle, ‘that vengeance belongs to the Lord’ (I Sam 24:12). After the Philistines became the impetus of Saul’s death, David asked the young Amalekite that took credit for killing Saul, “How was it you were not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?” (2 Sam. 1:14). He was then slain by one of David’s men.

To God be the Glory

The anointing will increase for those who gain momentum with a genuine unconditional love for God, however, those operating in egotism, impure devotion, eye service or motivated by nefarious agendas will be clothed with a sense of accomplishment but have no anointing. Simulating the anointing is to tempt God; whereby, many then slowly swirl and drain into an abyss made from the impact of a crater like mass similar to that of Lucifer’s fall. Reaching out towards God while His mercy is available will keep us from falling. While a force pulling riches stacked upon unbalanced foundations tumble into the barns of the just, we know “dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord (Prov. 11:1 NKJV). Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s and All the weights in the bag are His work” (Prov. 16:11 NKJV).

The anointing is a stimulation to do the will of God; therefore, disturbing it is an act of sedition. True and undefiled religion is replacing the love of self as your first love with the love of Christ. By having good religion, you allow God to carefully craft you as clay in His hands into a finely polished model of strength and integrity while possessing tact with graceful fluidity in every movement. Yielding permits God to pour more of Himself into you that you may carry His glory [doxa, Greek, dox-ah] indicating his weight, dignity and honor, after bowing, in order to allow His purpose to emerge through you powerfully and undeniably.

      Yes, it was exciting when I first published the fact that John the Baptist was the only person ever born filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb!

      The research & revelation were equally exciting.
