The seven anointings imparted on us by the Holy Spirit are for everyday life and are available to all who ask. Every one of these anointings have the power to remove burdens and destroy yokes by the power of God.
2 Peter 1:3
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is for life and godliness. He gives us divine power for a divine nature. The means that we can walk in this power each day and accomplish all that God has set out for us to do.
And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
His Devine power allows us to do things we couldn’t have done before. In all things, we should wait for the promise of God to manifest.
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.
What is the anointing? It is the Holy spirit imparting a certain ability or characteristic onto us. It will remove our burdens and destroy our yokes.
Jesus Christ’s name means anointed one! Christ is not his last name, it is his title. It means the anointed one. The Hebrew way of saying “the Christ” or “the anointed one” is “the Messiah.”
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
We need to stop being carriers of God’s Spirit. We should going out and pointing people back to Jesus.
Jesus left us the ability to walk in the anointing. Jesus Christ the person is in Heaven. Christ Jesus is the Holy Spirit.
Jesus, the anointed one, is in heaven but the anointing of Jesus is here with us.
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
There are two types of people who hinder the anointing from operating in their life.
1. Those who disqualify themselves
2. Those who look at all they’ve done and their knowledge and qualify themselves.
If the Lord moved on someone who qualified themself, they would take credit. The one who disqualifies himself doesn’t ask for the anointing.
Only those who realize they need the Lord and cannot do it without Him can be anointed and used.
Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
Although Jesus came from the most unlikely of places for an important person to come from, the anointing made the difference.
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 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.
He’s the God of the shepherds and God of the Kings. He is Lord of all.
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
According to this scripture, those who can walk in the Holy Spirit are those who ask God. The issue is that we don’t ask when we don’t feel qualified or when we don’t feel we need it. We must be a beggar for His Spirit.
If you are going to be sent, you must be sent the way that Jesus was. He was equipped by the Holy Spirit!
