The Kingly anointing.
“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:6(KJV).
When you got born again, you were initiated into the Priesthood. Then, there is also the kingly anointing which most of the church calls the baptism with the Holy Spirit. But a lot of Christians do not know what they received the day they got born again or when they received the Holy Spirit because they have not been taught.
So, as a born again Christian you ought to know that you are already a king. The word ‘king’ in our opening scripture is from the Greek word ‘basileus.’ It refers to a king, a prince, a commander, a lord of the land or a leader of the people.
Therefore as a Christian, you must know that you have been made the lord of the land where you are. God has made you a ruler. God has given you a sphere of authority. So do not see yourself as a victim or someone who lacks ability. No! You are a king. You have the authority and ability to determine what happens around you. And the bible says in Ecclesiastes 8:4, “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?”
The Lord Jesus also says to us in Luke 10:19(GW), “I have given you the authority to trample snakes and scorpions and to destroy the enemy's power. Nothing will hurt you.” That is the sovereign declaration of the One who has all power; we see that in Matthew 28:18 where Jesus said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Then in the verse 19, he says to us, “Go ye therefore …” In other words, he is backing us with all His authority and power in all that we do. So, as you exercise your authority as a king today, be confident knowing that you are backed by the All Powerful One. His Name is Jesus.
Thank you Father for making me a king to reign and rule on the earth. I thank you for I am backed up with your authority which is superior to all other authority and power. I thank you Father for you have filled my words with creative ability to always produce what they talk about. In Jesus Name. Amen.
1 Peter 2:9, Revelations 5:10.
