Anointing For Exploits


My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation,

In
secure dwellings, and in quiet resting placesIsaiah 32:18

ANOINTING is the expression of the sanctifying unction of the Holy Spirit of God upon the life of a Christian. It signifies Gods empowerment and blessings on a person to do exploits. The use of oil for anointing is only symbolic to depict the blessings of God and His call on ones life and the empowerment thereof.

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with HimActs 10:38

In Luke 4:18,19 Jesus testified that the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him as the anointed One and the Messiah to spread the good news of the Gospel, give freedom to those in captivity, heal the sick, etc.
Before Christ ascended to heaven, He promised His disciples that He will pray to God the Father, “and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you foreverJohn 14:17

It all simply means that every Christian(if truly a Christian) ought to be anointed and chosen to accomplish a purpose for the kingdom of God.

God requires us to be steadfast in fellowship as a body of Christ and so, Hehas consecrated and anointed us(enduing us with the gifts of the Holy SpiritHe sets us apart unto Himself and has put His seal of ownership on us, and given us His Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. (2 Cor. 1:2122)

In the opening Scripture, the prophet Isaiah has told us how the people of God will live in peace and be secure in their houses. But that will only be possible after the Spirit ispoured upon us from on highand every dry areas of our lives(existence) is made fertile and endowed with the required energy to be fruitful! (Isaiah 32:15)

Life without the Holy Spirit is too much of a struggle. The anointing for exploits is that which has already broken the yoke from your neck and have set you free from captivity

The Bible says when the Holy Spirit comes, He will be your Helper, Comforter, and will teach you all things(John 14:17,26)

The
presence of the Holy Spirit makes for a life of impact and productiveness because He brings with Him authority, boldness, grace and divine favor so that you can be fruitful and be able to impact the world around you.

Amen

LIVING IN THE SAFETY OF HIS PRESENCE


He who lives in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the AlmightyPsalm 91:1(NTL)

Before the coming of Christ, we lived in the bondage sin and burden of the law, both of which has curses that brought a lot of hindrances to all the people on the earth.(Gen. 3:17; Dan. 9:11). Jesus came as the Salvation from God to redeem man from those curses and as a Light that brings revelation to the world. He paid the price for each and everyone of us who would believe in Him to live a life that is free from curses of sin and bondage of the devil. 

  • Jesus took upon Himself the curses of the world when He was crucified on the cross of Calvaryfor it is writtencursed is everyone who hangs on a tree‘” Gal 3:13

The redemption that Jesus gives is salvation from sin, and freedom from its consequences.(John 8:3136). Those in Christ should be alive to righteousness and should no longer live in a manner consistent with the sin of the flesh, but according to the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. The meaning of this is that sin will not have any more power over anyone who decides to live a life of the Spirit in Christ. 

If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousnessRom 8:10(NASB)

  • One of the things that Christ did for us was to restore the relationship with God that was lost because of sin. By the blood of His reconciliation, Christ has made it possible that we can now live in God‘s presence by the indwelling of His Spirit.(John 14:17)

The work of the Spirit is to help us in our daily Christian life, to live in agreement with God’s will, plan and purpose. The Holy Spirit is our all-round Helper up to interceding for us before God and presents to Him any cause of worry we may have even when we do not understand nor state them precisely.(Romans 8:26,27)

On a daily basis, we need to accept to live our life in line with God’s ideas, principles and thoughts as found in the Bible and as impressed in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.

  • It is to our own interest and benefits to live a life that is yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit. That is the best way to experience the kind of freedom, liberty, joy and peace that can only be enjoyed by Christians becauseas by the Spirit of the Lordwe are transformed into the image of Christ from glory to gloryand where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty2 Cor 3:17,18 (NKJV)

The Bible said in 2 Chro 16:9 thatthe eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him” We should make a firm decision  to live each day in the presence of the Lord and open up our heats to Him, to do His will and be obedient to the leading of His Spirit. That is the only assured way to a life of safety, peace and success.

Amen
