HOLY SPIRIT AND ANOINTING (II)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 10:38-43


MEMORY VERSE:

Acts 1:8 "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Many Christians have prayed for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the anointing, but they did not receive it. The Bible says you ask and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (James 4:3). May you not ask amiss, in Jesus' name. Look at the wordings of this song that people sing when asking for anointing:


"Fill my heart, O Lord 

With Holy Ghost fire 

Anoint me, O Lord, I pray 

Anointing for service 

O my Lord, grant me

To be able to work for you"


Beloved, the song summarises the major purpose of the anointing. The anointing is not for your selfish use. Jesus told the apostles in Acts 1:8 that the power and anointing they will receive will give them boldness, courage, insight ability, confidence and authority to do the work of evangelism.


The anointing of God upon your life is to do the work of ministry first. That is the primary purpose. When you do these, then the numerous benefits of the anointing will be yours. It gives you healing, prosperity, protection, frustrates the token of the liars, and makes you untouchable to the powers of darkness. For you to receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit, beloved, you must fulfil the following basic requirements: You must be born again. You must be baptised with the Holy Spirit. If God has been calling you to do a particular assignment in His vineyard, you must answer that call. You must develop intimacy with the Holy Spirit. You must be addicted to the word of God and prayer. You must pay the price by being hungry and thirsty for the Holy Spirit, being fervent in prayer, being dead to flesh, being broken. Also, you should engage in purposeful fasting, have persistent faith in God and openness of your spirit and mind.


The anointing of the Holy Spirit upon your head will only work if you are humble, obedient to God's command as well as faithfully and constantly worshipping Him. Worship brings down the anointing. You must avoid sin at all cost, avoid extra attention or questionable closeness to the opposite sex, avoid flattery, anger, adultery, bitterness, pride of achievement, laziness, unforgiving spirit, and so on. All these are anointing destroyers. The anointing of God upon your head shall not be destroyed, in Jesus' name. Beloved, the anointing is sweet and pleasant 

Give it all it takes to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the anointing.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

When God anoints you, you will be appointed for supernatural accomplishments.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

THE ANOINTING TO DISGRACE YOUR OPPRESSORS SHALL COME UPON YOUR LIFE, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.
