DISCOVERING YOUR ANOINTINGjoyalministries
The study of the Word of God reveals that anyone of us has an anointing from heaven.
EXODUS 31: 3 declares: "And I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship."
That was anointing for individual and not specially minister unto God, he was anointed.
ACTS 6: 3 declares seven men chosen to serve when he anoints all disciples and saints:
"Therefore, brothers, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business."
ACTS 9: 17 declares that Paul the apostle was anointed by laying of hands on him by Ananias: "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Later we can see that he became mighty, mighty, mighty chosen vessel of God.
ACTS 9: 15 declares to Ananias before: "Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel."
So let's clear this quickly: God does not anoint the ministers only, He is willing to anoint every saint of God and every saint has a different anointing for a different job.
He will not accept your work whatever you do for Him without anointing on it.
I SAMUEL 13: 9 declares about Saul that has not anointing for a job and was rejected.
Saul try to be a priest and he was not to offer a burning offering and he was rejected.
II CHRONICLES 26: 18 the same happen to king Uzziah who burn incense to the Lord.
God anointed Uzziah to be a king and God bless him as a king but not priest.
God make him leper instead and if you go out of your calling you'll become a leper.
You can not be a priest if you are not a priest and without priestly anointing.
Never do what God don't calls you to do and give you special anointing on special job.
God will judge individuals who has not respect for His Anointing on individuals.
If you are not anointed for the job or position, please don't do it for your own good.
The Anointing of God is for the service unto God and his people in His Kingdom.
Your Anointing is found in your calling. Find your calling and you'll find anointing.
God can strike with leprosy anyone who disrespect anointing on leaders like Moses.
When we despise the anointing of God then will be very unpleasant situation for us.
NUMBERS 12: 1 declares: "Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married, for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
Moses married black Ethiopian woman, but it was not of their business to stand against.
And they become to attacking Moses because of this marriage to this lady.
NUMBERS 12: 2 declares: "And they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also? And the LORD heard it."
They despised, disrespect anointing on Moses. When you do the same you'll lose your own.
NUMBERS 12: 9, 10 says: "So the anger of the LORD was aroused against them, and He departed. And when the cloud departed from above the tabernacle, suddenly Miriam became leprous, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned, and there she was, a leper."
When a man named Uzziah walk out of his calling , he become a leper.
Walking away from your calling will bring you unto leprosy and leprosy is symbol of sin. So if you walk away from your calling you are easy falling into sin. Any man of God who walks away from his anointing will fall into sin. Reasons some of them sin because they walked away from their calling and anointing. If you called to be a pastor don't go on and do something different. If your call to be a teacher don't go and be evangelist or pastor.
Never to be a judge of God's people when you taking God's place of judging His people.
Where God calling you to stay, stay there! Because everything around this position is for you leprous and sinful as disobedient for His calling and anointing. There is leprosy away from your calling. never try to be a Moses when you not. If you walk away from your calling you are falling unto leprosy and sin. Notice that leprosy hit Miriam when the cloud lifted and departed from above the tabernacle. People who walk away from anointing will realise sooner or later that there is no anointing for them. The anointing lifts when you begin to walk away from the place God call you and anointed you for. When the cloud leave, leprosy steps in. When the clouds leaves sickness sets in, bondage gets in. God keep cloud on Israel because of Moses who was very humble, more than all men who were on the earth. As long as Moses walk with God the cloud was there. When the cloud lifted leprosy went and struck rebellious woman. Then Moses prayed and brought the cloud back.
Even Miriam was healed she was shut out of camp for seven days for punishment. Remember you all: The consequence of sin will always come upon you. Always it is a price to pay for any sin against the LORD or His anointed.
ROMANS 12 : 6 declares that your level of anointing will depend on your level of faith.
1. Stay in your Calling 2. Anointing on your life will increase on your level of faith.
Faith will increase your level of anointing. Let your level of faith increase as anointing increase. I believe that we all need anointing of God for any job to do in the Kingdom of God. ROMANS 12: 6,7 declares: "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;
or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching."
Faith in God is vital but your faith in God will be nothing without knowing the grace of God
Grace of God for knowing He loves me and faith in him who bring me out of my pit of hell.
Faith and Grace always walking together. And if you have faith without Grace you nothing. ACTS 6: 5 and 8 says: "And they chose Stephen, a man full of Faith and the Holy Spirit, and Stephen, full of Faith and Power, did great wonders and signs among the people."
You cannot have Power of Spirit without Faith. Faith and Power walking together.
Your level of faith must increase before the level of anointing will increase with faith.
You can see the importance of God's faith. We are talking about Faith of God.
"He is the author and finisher of our faith." It is not your faith, it's His faith.
Once your level of faith in God start to increase, God begin to honour you with more and more. The next things you'll know the anointing will begin to penetrate your life.
That Anointing start to becoming smearing on you. Word "ANOINT" in Hebrew is Mishat,
Greek is 'Crisma' and it means to rub in your body. IT'S A TANGIBLE ANOINTING.
ACTS 1: 8 declares: "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses unto Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
WHAT IS THE GLORY OF GOD? GLORY OF GOD IS HIS PERSON.
When Stephen said 'I see the Glory of God' he doesn't mean any light shining from heaven, he saw Jesus, the Person and His presence. What is the presence? The person is the presence. The Glory of God is the person of God. The presence of God and when His presence shows up, His attributes shows up with Him. When Moses said: 'Let me see you Your Glory? EXODUS 33: 18 asks: "Please, show me Your Glory."
I want you to let me show something: He don't say 'Let me fill it' but 'Let me see it'.
The Glory of God is not only felt, the Glory of God can be seen. And when he ask: "Let me see your Glory", God said what? In verse 19: "I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the Name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
When the Glory of God pass over him in EXODUS 34: 6 - "And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "the LORD, The LORD GOD, merciful and gracious, long - suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousand generations, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and fourth generation.
The Glory of God is His Presence and His attributes. The Presence of God is His Grace!
His Grace, Forgiveness, His Compassion, His Mercy and Righteousness.
When His Presence shows up, people's lives are changed. Sin goes when Mercy comes in.
Presence of God will reveal to you His Grace. Glory of God is His goodness, His compassion and His attributes. When the presence of God will come upon you what manifest will be in your life? The Fruits of the Spirit: Love, Peace, Longsuffering, Patience, Faith. Holy Spirit said once to me: "Faith is not in you, faith is in Me and when I came inside you, you will see my Presence. Faith is the fruit of the Spirit!
Faith of God is found in the Presence of God. I don't want faith, I want faith of the Holy Ghost in me, the Faith of God. And it's come as I yield to it! I want to clone me from inside to outside. I don't want to plead and beg and agonise for it. He is here, He is in you and me.
He is merciful, He is gracious, He is compassionate, He is long-suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth. He is your Heavenly Father! Hallelujah!
Moses asks, "Please, show me your glory." God answered: "My Glory is My Person,
My Presence, My Attributes. My Glory is Me. I Am Merciful and Gracious ... I Am.
You want the Presence of God, you want the Glory of God, read EXODUS 34: 6 -
"And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, 'The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth."
You just read what to be inside of you, the same God the Holy Spirit.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit brings His presence and the first thing which happen is the Fruit of the Spirit in your life. That Fruit of the Spirit will be manifested out of you and that will bring the Power of God on your life. The Presence of God which brings the Person of God happens when he gives us the Baptism of the Spirit. "You shall receive Power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you." We see the things all around when we see the gifts of the Spirit without fruit of the Spirit. There will be grace, love, peace, long-suffering, faith and goodness in your life. The vessel now is filled with the presence of God. And if the presence of God is in Him, He said I am merciful, My presence is longsuffering.
The Presence of God, the Glory of God are His attributes. He and Hid attributes are one. When I am filled with the Spirit of God the fruits of the Spirit will shows up overnight.
And when the Fruit is there He then will Anoint me to the greater things in His Kingdom.
And that is His Power in your life. The Presence of God is His Baptism of the Spirit of God.
And that is His Glory, His Presence, and His Attributes and His Experience.
God will then anoint you but He will not anoint vessels who are not merciful, gracious.
How many of you want His Power, you must have His presence first. The Power follows His Presence. The Power of God is His Anointing. The Anointing and Power are One.
The Presence of God and the Fruit are One as well. When I receive the Presence of God,
I receive the Fruit of the Spirit and when I receive Power of God, I receive Anointing.
The Presence contains the Fruits and the Anointing contain the Gifts of the Spirit.
"You shall receive Power (the Gifts and the Anointing) when the Holy Ghost
(the Presence, the Person, the Glory) has come upon you,...""And then you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, all Judea, and Samaria, and the ends of the world."
So speaking with tongues without His presence is not what God is talking about.
Having the gifts without His Presence is not what God is talking about.
I must have His Presence first which will give me His Fruits first which will bring me God in me first, and then God will anoint me, not the flesh but the spirit and the anointing will come right after that. God spoke to me: "I don't anoint vessels empty of Me, I anoint vessels full of Me." So the Gifts of the Spirit won't come unless fruit will be there in you.
When God visited Benny Hinn, the fruits of the Spirit were in me in one night.
God don't need your help but your cooperation. Be a vessel and let the fruits come out of you. One day you are angry old man, next you are gracious. They ask: What happen to you?
You answer: I was Born Again! Alleluia. I no longer live for self, I live for God now!
You are Christian now. You now surrounded to God and you are keeping your body as the living sacrifice to God. No longer you're living, but Christ in you. Alleluia. You ask now:
I want the Presence of God, I want the Glory of God, I want the tangible Anointing of God.
The Glory of God means. It is the Greek: "Doxa"- means the appearance of the magnificence
The Glory of God is His Manifestation of His Person and Attributes.
The Anointing of God is the manifestation of His Power and His Gifts.
II CHRONICLES 5: 13, 14 declares: "They praised the LORD saying:
"For He is good, For His Mercy endures forever," that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the Glory of the LORD filled the house of God."
Remember the Moses when he saw the presence of the LORD, his face shone like the light, and he was not aware of it and all he saw was the back parts of God and his face was shining so bright that Jews could not look unto his face. And when you have an encounter with the presence and Person and Glory of God your whole life will be changed.
In the Old testament his face was changed, in the New testament our life is changed.
Our life will be totally taken by that glory and will show it to others. You become so God concious and the Presence of God will take over and the Glory of God will be manifested.
If you loose self-conciseness, and gain God-conciseness - His Person, His Presence will be manifested out of you. And if you will loose God's conciseness and gain self-concessions, Your self will be manifested out of you. And you remember Adam when He loose God's conciseness and He was depraved Glory and found Himself naked and he said:
"I am afraid." Fear is the first result of self-conciseness, and Boldness is the First result of God-conciseness. They were filled with the Holy Ghost and Boldness!
When you become God-conciseness you will become Bold for His Presence will come out of you. You become self-conciseness, you become fearful because your presence will become out of you. II CHRONICLES 7: 1, 2 - " Now when Salomon had finished praying, fire came down from Heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house."
In II CHRONICLES 5: 14 when the Presence of God came, the priests could not stand, in II CHRONICLES 7: 2 when the Fire of God came, the priests could not enter.
There was an increase in God's Presence. And what increased it? Worship was in first place
and the blood was in the second case.
God said: "The blood will always increase My Glory."
When the blood is applied He will increase His presence. There is Power in the Blood.
