You are anointed!19.01.2010
John 14:16-17, 23:
“… I will beg the Father, and will give you other Comforter, let He abide with you forever, Spirit of truth Which the world cannot accept because does not see Him and does not know Him; and you know Him for He stays with you and will be in you. … who loves Me, that will observe My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and we will create our home with him”.
It is a question of Holy Spirit. I want, that you understood, that Holy Spirit which will be sent by the God-father, will come not how He came on separate people in the Old Testament. At that time the Holy Spirit came and rested on people. Here Jesus says that He will send Holy Spirit Which not only will abide with people, but also will be in them. In you there will be a monastery. The monastery is a house. The Lord has selected our hearts, our revived spirit as a place of dwelling of the Holy Spirit. I wish to proclaim this truth, and it is absolutely conclusive: thanks to that Holy Spirit in us, each of us is anointed. Who from you trusts in it?
In the Old Testament the people on whom the Holy Spirit rested, named anointed Divine sovereigns. The anointed sovereign is the person authorized by the God to make any business, which not in power to other people.
Let’s take Samson. He was Divine Nazarene, the anointed sovereign, the person devoted to the God. So many films are put about him, the books are written about him, and everywhere they represent him powerful, as Schwarzenegger. I think that outwardly Samson was the usual person. His force was supernatural. Or you think that Samson went to a training exercise room? He was the ordinary Jewish guy and won not in human power. Everything, that distinguished him from others, is anointing. His parents made a testament with God: their son should not drink some wine and hard liquor should not touch dead persons, he should not eat anything dirty, should not cut hair. He has been separated for the God. When his hair grew, Samson braided them in seven plaits. The razor did not touch Samson’s head. His force consisted in hair. It was the secret between him and the God; he should speak to nobody about it. And here once Philistines told Jews: “You have one Jew here who creates disorders. Give him to us – or we will grasp all of you”. Townsmen came to Samson and said: “We wish to live peacefully”. He answers: “Extradite me”. He was tied with cords and led. In appearance he was the ordinary guy, but the anointed sovereign. Nobody knows that he was the anointed sovereign. Samson goes and sees: the asinine jaw rolls at road. Lord’s Spirit was on him and the cords which were on his hands also descended, they became, as the fused flax, and bonds from his hands fell down» (Judges 15:14). Samson’s shoulders straightened, seized this jaw and put to death 1000 persons. It is impossible for the ordinary person. Philistines have bows, swords, spears, army in one thousand persons. And Samson has laid them with one jaw.
The Old Testament in general is very interesting. The God protected a seed of the wife (Genesis 3:15). Jesus Christ should be born from the Jewish people, therefore the God lifted people thanks to whom these people remained. Do you know how many people have disappeared from the face of the earth throughout its history? But Jews live till now.
Samson, allocated by force from the God, did that other person could not do. He came to Gaza, before they closed city gate. He broke these gates, put them on shoulders and carried them on mountain top. Samson was not very strong, but he was anointed. He is anointed - means, the Holy Spirit can co-operate with him. During certain time, when necessary, the Holy Spirit descended on Samson and allocated him with his force.
One more interesting story how Samson caught one thousand foxes, set fire to the tails and started up in Philistines fields, having destroyed all crop. I thought: try to catch at least one fox – you will get tired to run behind it. How he could catch one thousand foxes?!
When the person is anointed, he can do what will surprise people.
In the New Testament the Holy Spirit descends and settles in us. The God in us is real. It’s Divine promise: “I Will live in them and walk among them” (2 Corinthians 6:16). If the God is in us if Holy Spirit in us – on 100 % each person is anointed. Each person, in whom there is Holy Spirit, is anointed.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22:
“Confirming us in the Christ and anointed us there is] God Who set his seal of ownership on us and and put his Spirit in our hearts”.
When the God sent Holy Spirit to our hearts, we became special. We are anointed. There is God who anointed us. Consequences of it are very great.
1 John 2:20:
“However, you have anointing from Holy and know all”.
Anointing can learn you.
1 John 2:27:
“However, anointing which you have received from Him, in you stays, and you do not need someone to teach you; but as most this anointing teaches you everything, and it is true and counterfeit, to what it has taught you, remain in that”.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is shown through us, and thanks to it we have perfect knowledge. Loving the God gives knowledge. We possess Divine wisdom which is shown in different situations. I will give an example from the life. I’m lucky to be born in a Christian family. Once I climbed up for sweets, fell and hit against a corner of a chair with a solar plexus. All spirit left. Mum picked me up, called the father. What to do? “Fast” will not help anymore, because the spirit left. The father heard a voice in himself: «Beat! » He spanked me with force in soft place, I revived and I live till now. Someone from brothers of our church said, how his son choked with a sweet, started to become blue. How many people died silly death, having choked with a sweet, meat or still something? If their relatives were anointed sovereigns, they would know what to do. This brother turned the son head over heels, stirred up him, fingers found a sweet – and the child lives till now. This gift – knowledge from the Holy Spirit – is shown in certain situations. With what the God has allocated us, very powerfully!
I wish you to convince: you are anointed, if Holy Spirit is in you. I wish to see, that you trust in it! You are anointed. Means, there is no business which would be to you not under force. The anointed person, whatever he is engaged in, in all will be successful. All at him will turn out. Absolutely any business is to you on a shoulder! Some people begin the new business, any business about which before they had no concept, – and associates are surprised: “As it at them so dexterously turns out?” Anointing works. The Holy Spirit allocates you with such abilities.
In Transbaikalia the friend was at me. Having brought the medical equipment, nobody could understand it. My friend does not have any formation, but he understood all and also adjusted. He was employed, paid the huge salary that has not left anywhere. He was the believing person, has been anointed by the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit – great, He can prompt you what to do. He knows all, even understands electronics.
I will tell you that will change your life forever.
If you want, that anointing of the Holy Spirit proceeded through you that at you in a life all turned out, you need to appreciate anointing.
1 Corinthians 3:16:
“Unless you do not know, that you are a Divine temple, and the Divine Spirit lives in you?”
Why Apostle Paul sets such questions? It is probable, because Christians of Corinth, being anointed, behaved so as if in them there was no Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 3:17:
“If who ruins a Divine temple, that will be punished by the God: for a temple Divine is saint; and this [temple] – you”.
The great God Who is not contained by heavens and all Universe, was located in your heart! We became a temple, through it the God has consecrated us. We became sacred. Our thoughts became sacred, affairs became sacred, words became sacred, the life became sacred. This sanctity makes the way through all: through our affairs, through acts. There are many people who are anointed, but do not appreciate anointing, therefore it does not flow through their life. They neglect anointing, neglect Holy Spirit. Sometimes they commit a conscious sin in the life. Imagine, as painfully to Holy Spirit in us when we betray the members to a sin. A Divine temple we will not combine with idols!
2 Corinthians 6:16:
“What compatibility of God’s temple with idols? For you are temple of the living God. God said: I will live in them and I will walk [in them]; also I will be their God, and they will be My people”.
If we church which is going to serve the God, it is necessary for us, that anointing moved and proceeded through us. Serving the Lord we can only provide that anointing of the Holy Spirit is on us. Without anointing we cannot serve the God. We want, that our service, our church, our house groups to be successful. Even people, who clean this building, should be anointed. People, who are engaged in technical maintenance, also should be anointed, have sensitivity to Holy Spirit: to know, that it is necessary to do, and that is not useful. Full respect of the Holy Spirit.
We should appreciate the Holy Spirit and His anointing as David appreciated. It was the best king of Israel. Any army has not won David for all time of his board. What is a secret of his greatness in? Before to become the king, he was the ordinary shepherd, the God has called him from herd. But David was the person who appreciated anointing. He was the admirer, gave the heart to the God. The God has noticed it.
I will cite as an example one more story which proves, that David appreciated anointing. King Saul, who has lost anointing, pursued David. Sometimes the God betrayed Saul in David's hands. Once David found Saul in a tent sleeping. With David was Avessa which offered: “Here a spear, I will kill Saul from the first and I will not repeat the blow”. But David told Avessa: “do not kill him; for whom, having lifted a hand on anointed sovereign Lord’s remains unpunished?” (1 Samuel 26:9) Then, having departed on decent distance and standing at mountain top, David asked Saul: “the King, for what you pursue me? What for do you chase a flea? The God is the witness; I did not wish to lift a hand on anointed sovereign God’s”. There was not anointing on Saul, it departed from him. But he was selected once by the God and He anointed him, put him in special position, and David didn’t want to lift a hand even on the former anointed sovereign.
Let it be instruction for you: speak nothing against people anointed with Holy Spirit. Many Christians dismiss tongues today. How can you construct the service successfully if you are not able to keep the mouth shut? The God himself will look into the anointed sovereigns.
When we appreciate anointing, we make thrifty use of it then it flows in our life. You can do any good things, but only Holy Spirit will strengthen your actions. You can speak something, but only the Holy Spirit will strengthen your words. Only anointing of the Holy Spirit will destroy burden, yoke. Anointing of the Holy Spirit is an answer and to your needs, and to needs of all our country.
You are anointed – but what do you do with anointing? Do not neglect it. Holy Spirit is on you. Appreciate unction, appreciate Holy Spirit – and will be successful people, invincible, prospering at which all in a life will turn out. Preacher Benn Hinn speaks: “the Lord, it is easier to die for me, than to lose unction of the Holy Spirit. Please, do not leave me never!” Without it we are empty, ordinary, carnal people, not capable to bridle the language, not capable to build normal relations in a family.
The God has invested us the force knowingly. If you trust in unction – you will operate. Unction is always given that you were successful in the actions. You will not simply enjoy unction, but will begin to serve fruitfully to the God. Unction is given that you have made something.
