1. ANOINTING is the NAME and PERSON of Jesus Christ dwelling in man – not in oil, holy water, mantles or altars – to WORK in YOU and I to FULFIL the WILL and PURPOSE of God. The Bible says: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but SUCH AS I HAVE GIVE I THEE: In the NAME of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk” Acts 3:6
2. ANOINTING is the AUTHORITY to SPEAK, ACT and LIVE in the NAME and PERSON of Jesus Christ. We know, from Holy Scriptures, that God raised prophets in times past who SPOKE, ACTED and LIVED as ambassadors of His majesty. They were commissioned by revelation of His NAME and or APPELLATIONS to do His bidding. For example, God revealed Himself to Abraham as JEHOVAH, meaning, the ALMIGHTY. God made Himself known to Moses, at the burning bush, as I AM THAT I AM. God gave His NAME and or APPELLATIONS in those days as proof of His COMMISSION. In the LAST DAYS, God chose to do MANIFEST Himself in Jesus Christ to FULFIL His PURPOSE. The last prophet before Jesus Christ was John, of who it is written: “…Among those that are born of women THERE IS NOT A GREATER PROPHET THAN JOHN THE BAPTIST: but he that is LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS GREATER THAN HE” (Luke 7:28) The scope and measure of ANOINTING available to John and those before him were at best half full. They had the NAME and or APPELLATIONS of God, but none had His PERSON dwelling in them, until the WORD was made FLESH, as the Bible says: “And the WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth….And OF HIS FULNESS HAVE ALL WE RECEIVED, and GRACE for GRACE” (John 1:14-16) Jesus Christ is the WORD made FLESH and through Him and in Him ALONE, came the FULNESS of God and His ANOINTING. So then, ANOINTING is not of any man or demonic magic, but God dwelling in earthly vessels to fulfil His OWN PURPOSE. For this reason, “…he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation” (Matthew 3:29)
3. ANOINTING is Jesus Christ dwelling in YOU and I as proof of ADOPTION into the family of God, and bona fide: “… heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:17) We are JOINT-HEIRS with Christ because He is the FULNESS of God and He RESIDES in US. This is a mystery, hid through the ages, now revealed when God manifested His PERSON and NAME in Jesus Christ; “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON,…” (Hebrews 1:3) The NAMES and APPELLATIONS of God revealed in times past are incompatible with the EXPRESS IMAGE OF His PERSON. Jesus Christ is the NAME that goes with the FULNESS of God and the Revelation of His PERSON. The Bible says: “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME: That at the NAME OF JESUS EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, of things IN HEAVEN, and things IN EARTH, and things UNDER THE EARTH;” (Philippians 2:9-10) These two verses remove every doubt on the legitimacy of the NAME of Jesus Christ as God’s IDENTITY in HEAVEN, on EARTH and in the GRAVE. In addition, there is no SALVATION or ANOINTING in any other name or names and it does not matter who or where such names are called. Apostle Peter understood and SPOKE in the POWER of the ANOINTING, when he said: “…by the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole…..Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12) ANOINTING in the NAME and PERSON of Christ, dwelling in us, is the POWER of God to do exploits in fulfilment of DIVINE PURPOSE. The ANOINTING separates Wheat from Chaff. It gathers CHAFF to damnation but works in WHEAT to establish us in, “THE HOPE OF GLORY” (Colossians 1:27) I call you this day to receive the ANOINTING in the NAME and PERSON of the Lord and be sealed to EVERLASTING GLORY. tomorrow may be too late.
4. ANOINTING is not a perquisite of religious office, a tool to amass filthy lucre or to fulfil the will of the flesh but God dwelling in us “...TO WILL AND TO DO OF HIS GOOD PLEASURE” (Philippians 2:13) ANOINTING cannot be SOLD or by any means TRANSFERRED for money or material consideration. ANOINTING is not the FRANCHISE of any man or denomination, but God building us “…up a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:5) God’s SPIRITUAL HOUSE is the Church. Without ANOINTING the Church is a LIFELESS assembly of pretenders having forms and rituals of religion, but POWERLESS (2 Timothy 3:5) Whereas the early Church grew and was nourished on ANOINTING, it is hard to say the same about this generation. We boast fanciful cathedrals but lack the POWER to conduct the business of God, where and when it matters most. Peter and John had no money to throw around but had the ANOINTING to conduct God’s business at the Beautiful Gate. The Bible says: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but SUCH AS I HAVE GIVE I THEE: IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength” (Acts 3:6) The REASON for the ANOINTING is to propagate the LIFE and POWER of Christ on earth, not to build religious empires with cankered gold. Peter and John, representing the LIVING CHURCH, gave NEW LIFE to the lame man in the NAME and PERSON of Jesus Christ. Less than 40 years after the miracle at the Beautiful Gate, the Temple, representing SLEEPING CHURCH was plundered and destroyed in AD 70. The desolation of that Temple is a warning to the present Church. God had and has no need for a Temple or CHURCH devoid of His Presence and a priesthood overtaken by graft and fleshly lusts. Beloved, the Lord is waiting at the “BEAUTIFUL GATE” of this generation. As He did in that generation, bypassing the TEMPLE PRIESTS to heal the lame man, so shall He do once more. A GREAT REVIVAL is coming and this SLEEPING CHURCH shall be caught unawares. The Lord will pour His ANOINTING on His CHOSEN VESSELS and there shall be HOLY COMMOTION at the BEAUTIFUL GATE. Those who have ears will hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church and flee the TRIBULATION that shall come upon APOSTATE CHURCH and the world, as it is written: “…COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4)
5. ANOINTING is not the sudden burst of religious ecstasy or sorcery, by which many are bewitched. ANOINTING of Jesus Christ is the permanent IDENTITY of sons of God. It is not a tag worn on the neck or cassock sown by men but the abiding presence of the PERSON and NAME of Jesus Christ in those who are genuinely BORN AGAIN, as it is written: “Know ye not that YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16) ANOINTING is not what you get when a serial adulterer and unrepentant liar stands before a pulpit to lay hands on you. Those who allow such hands on their heads submit themselves to demonic manipulation. ANOINTING flows from knowledge of Jesus Christ as God MANIFEST in FLESH and absolute TRUST in Him. The closer your fellowship with Him, in SPIRIT and TRUTH, the deeper you are immersed in His ANOINTING. Without ANOINTING in the NAME and Person of Jesus Christ, whatever any man does or believe in the name of God is mere PRETENCE. The season of the Lord’s coming is here. We shall be gathered by His ANOINTING and not by status or denomination. By His ANOINTING, we shall defy gravity and be TRANSLATED to GLORY at the appearance of the Lord in company of innumerable angels. This TESTIMONY of Jesus Christ and His ANOINTING is true. I challenge you to search the scriptures prayerfully and examine your FAITH in LIGHT of TRUTH. Brethren, FAITH not grounded on BEDROCK of REVELATION of Jesus Christ as God manifest in FLESH is built on SINKING SAND. Are you a Christian? What do you really believe?Now you know the TRUTH, I enjoin to think deeply and compare what you “believe” with the TESTIMONY of Jesus Christ. If you have to, retrace your steps and return to FIRST PRINCIPLES of Jesus Christ to find EVERLASTING PEACE, amen.
6. If you have never known the Lord, His arms are outstretched to receive you right now. Find a quiet place to CONFESS and REPENT of your SINS wholeheartedly. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, FREE, by GRACE through FAITH in His NAME, amen.
