Description

As with everything of God we must access and take courage in the things that are provided to us by our heavenly Father.

  • The anointing is no different
    • We must trust in the anointing God has given us and draw from it to know what we need to know in these anti-Christ saturated days.

1 John 2:18-21 NAS 18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. 20 But you have an anointing (Gr. the special endowment) from the Holy One, and you all know.

1 John 2:26-27 NAS 26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. 27 As for you, the anointing (Gr. the special endowment) which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

The anointing on us is in accordance with our call and gifting

  • $$ Train up a child in the way HE SHOULD GO

Multiple types of anoints

  • Personal for your work
  • Jul - Corporate for the body - blended
    • Apostolic
    • Healing

Psalms 45:7 NAS You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows.

  • Anoint (Strong’s) to rub with oil, i.e. to anoint
  • The oil of (Strong’s) grease, especially liquid (as from the olive, often perfumed)

 

  • The contents of the anointing oil in the Old Testament were specific from God.

Exodus 30:22-33 AMP 22 Moreover, the Lord said to Moses, 23 Take the best spices: of liquid myrrh 500 shekels, of sweet-scented cinnamon half as much, 250 shekels, of fragrant calamus 250 shekels, 24 And of cassia 500 shekels, in terms of the sanctuary shekel, and of olive oil a hin. 25 And you shall make of these a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer; it shall be a sacred anointing oil. 26 And you shall anoint the Tent of Meeting with it, and the ark of the Testimony, 27 And the [showbread] table and all its utensils, and the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense, 28 And the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver [for cleansing] and its base. 29 You shall sanctify (separate) them, that they may be most holy; whoever and whatever touches them must be holy (set apart to God). 30 And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons and sanctify (separate) them, that they may minister to Me as priests. 31 And say to the Israelites, This is a holy anointing oil [symbol of the Holy Spirit], sacred to Me alone throughout your generations. 32 It shall not be poured upon a layman's body, nor shall you make any other like it in composition; it is holy, and you shall hold it sacred. 33 Whoever compounds any like it or puts any of it upon an outsider shall be cut off from his people.

  • The cost of each batch at today’s bulk prices would be $6,528.

WE need to keep the anointing stirred up in us

  • God gave the recipe amount so they would have to mix a fresh batch often
  • 2 Timothy 1:6-7 NKJV 6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

You must draw on and trust in that anointing

  • If you don’t the devil will put a deposit of fear in you and you will draw from it.

 

Julie - anointings are like different oils that God has given to us for a variety of different needs

Bacteria is on the outside of a cell and viruses are on the inside.

  • There’s a coating that seals the cell is oil based
  • Oils can penetrate the cell.

Apostolic anointings

  • Many cannot become what they're called to because if what they are comes out and not under an apostolic covering they would be attacked at a level they don't have the anointing to be able to withstand. 

Anointings flow down and sideways

  • Psalms 133:1-2 NKJV 1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head Running down on the beard,The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
    • They flowed down from Aaron, signifying the head of the Levitical priesthood and in the same way sideways from brother to brother as they dwell in unity.

Anointings can be polluted

  • by the devil and the flesh.
  • Julie – offense, unforgiveness,

Music carries anointings both good and bad

Anointings spread by words

  • We can lift others up or bring them down
    • The rabble cause the COI to complain in the wilderness.
  • Julie – Transferable Anointing

The anointing consists of:

  • The knowledge to know how to deal with the enemy that's attacking us. 
  • $$ the weapons of our warfare can't be carnal. 

Power from the taught word that enlightens and from a body of faith filled believers that will allow God's Holy Spirit power to be present in corporate worship gatherings. 

     $$ when my brother is weak i am strong

 

Oils can be exchanged as we associate with other believers.

  • The bible says to avoid some claiming Christianity but not living it.
  • This is because of the polluting of their oil and the effect it can have on others in the body.
    • 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 NAS 9 I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people; 10 I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler — not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?  13 But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.
    • 2 Thessalonians 3:6 NAS Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from every brother who leads an unruly (KJV-disorderly) life and not according to the tradition which you received from us.
  • Unruly (Strong’s) irregularly (morally); insubordinate (religiously)
