What is the “anointing?”
The anointing is the Spirit of God. He assists the process of obedience by many tokens of strength. He is also called the Comforter and Spirit of Truth.
He will testify of Christ confirming the pattern, purpose and plan of God.
He will glorify the Father. By this growth factor your soul increases in the likeness of God. The witness begins in the conscience sanctifying the gate of the soul to redeem the total man. Spirit + Soul + Body.
Misconceptions Lead to Misuses
Misconceptions of the anointing result from mixing the old covenant precepts and the pure conscience. Those anointed in the first covenant still struggled with the conscience as we read in psalms, “Lord, take not thy Holy Spirit from me.”
That the Anointing will Teach you Doctrine
Many Bible scholars believe that comprehension is equal to the anointing. That is an error. That by exploring the syntax truth can be discovered and they approach God with knowledge in place of His power. This begets schism and lawlessness in many believers.
If the anointing teaches everyone doctrine then the calling of the teacher is removed. If the anointing replaces government then the apostles calling is denied.
If the anointing is the preaching of the gospel then evangelism is for everyone.
If the anointing instructs habits of life then the true work of regeneration is replaced by recommitments and cycles of repentance.
See how Satan replaced the callings with word-play and reduced the church and its leadership to division and frustration.
The wisdom of man is used as the anointing and human behaviour is addressed with the scales of psychology. The unconverted approach God in prayer to deal with the issues of the soul and social conflicts. They are assigning the anointing to be the slave of their own concupiscence.
When the Wisdom of Man Replaces the Power of God
This approach to God is called headiness and high-mindedness because it is based on the precept of study and not the Power of God.
The Power of God is Jesus Christ who is the mediator (Power) of His covenant. Though the work of the cross is sealed for our faith yet many claim this work in error by not building with the Power that completes it.
Satan again has cleverly replaced the work of the Spirit with an empty profession of the lips. They profess they know Him, yet in works (Power) they deny Him.
They become the enemies of righteousness and sour true faith by traditions based on their own scriptural assimilation. They set a pattern in the word of man replacing the power of God in the covenant. The anointing is absent their profession of faith so they make achievements of the flesh account for the power of God.
The false anointing is manifested in the good works of money, buildings, memberships, books and social influence. The honour of man is called the blessing of God and this confuses the face of true knowledge, for Satan hides behind the veil of this perception.
This false scale clouds the understanding of what false doctrine is for the church.
You need no anointing to follow and achieve this pattern, in fact you don’t even need to pray.
Where the anointing is absent fellowship is centered on the likes and dislikes of the congregation. So false pastors observe behaviour in the false light of the system they are enslaved too. They will challenge the anointing as heresy based on the scale of their own familiar ideas of Christian living. You need no anointing for this either.
I can Never be Wrong
Under the spell of the false anointing (seducing spirit) ministers feel confident in their pursuits of their own vision.
They preach, teach and prophesy under this influence addressing personal issues and even claiming their works to be sanctified works “of the Lord.”
They believe every decision is from heaven when they feel the goose-bumps or “fire” of the Lord. Those unlearned replace their good sense for this “anointed” minister to speak into their life using the name of God for an advantage and calling it the common good of God’s kingdom.
If the Spirit is upon me I can do as I want, they believe.
The Spirit and the Flesh
The difference between faith and works of the moral-code. The anointing always points to the Godhead in word and in deed. The ministers of unrighteousness can’t use this tool because it won’t flow with the voice of the aspiration.
The anointing exposes the darkness and restricts the power of sin. It doesn’t enflame the passions to pursue the wealth of the world, the wisdom of the world, nor to dominate, oppress, or destroy for the “good” of God’s will.
Satan has no place of influence in the anointing because it is light.
“Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
Satan cannot prevail against the one God has anointed but Satan can misrepresent the scriptures to appear as a “revelation” from God.
Regeneration and the Anointing
If a person is speaking under the anointing can he make an error?
Yes, for the anointing doesn’t replace the knowledge but influences the outcome.
The anointing works with regeneration but not apart from the truth.
We witness this in the scriptures when the prophet quotes another's prophecy but the sentence is jumbled or mixed or the references are wrong.
Just a quick note on that. The Lord didn’t divide up the Bible with Chapters and verses, it was the finger of man that did this. So the quoting isn’t a misquote of God but of man. Even when Satan quoted the scriptures it didn’t make them wrong but it was the absence of the anointing for which Jesus refused to confirm them.
But the Spirit still uses the understanding for the hearers to grasp and reciprocate.
Many ministers were wrongly discerned by believers that built confidence in the language of scriptures instead of the language of the Spirit.
The Anointing will Break the Yoke of Ignorance
God won’t remove the contradiction but He will heal the soul. We read in the scriptures of the apostles the struggles of faith. We think in our self that if the anointing is present then we shouldn’t face any problems, but yet we read of the conflict and persecutions of the righteous in the Bible.
How did we ever assume that faith is free of conflict? Why do we surmise that if God is in me then I should have no weaknesses?
Get real, brother! God has determined this pattern for our reward why would He remove the challenge?
The real war is in the conscience and that is why the anointing is needed. Not to remove the challenge but to instruct the understanding in truth and grant experience for regeneration. We are “fellow labourers” with Christ not pew warmers for Christ.
The anointing breaks the yoke and sets the captives free.
What yoke? That of ignorance.
What prison? That of Satan’s influence.
Satan works with the flesh for the chains of concupiscence to master the aspirations and lend support to the pride of the principle. This spirit works all uncleanness with lasciviousness. He sets the pattern of iniquity to be the social norms.
We’re set free to righteousness. But that doesn’t mean wealth and health. Yes, God can bridge the signature and take a common shepherd and make him a king. But again that isn’t the norm or common promise to every believer.
Labour with the anointing and die to the powers of darkness and put on Jesus Christ. It is in the priesthood of the believer that the anointing assists your faith to bear His likeness of Christ.
True regeneration is with the anointing and false regeneration is in word only.
There is no; Yes, Yes and No, No, but in Him is Yes and amen.
