TOPIC: WHAT IS THE ANOINTING?

MEMORISE: “Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God.” – (2 Corinthians 1:21)

READ: Isaiah 61:1-3 (KJV)

1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Open Heaven Daily Devotional Guide 4th April 2024 Message:

Many people seek to understand what exactly brings about miracles. When they see a man of God lay hands on a sick person and the sick person gets healed, they want to know what passed from his hand into the sick fellow’s body that caused the healing. When they say someone fell under the anointing, the question is, what is the anointing?

The anointing can be described as ‘heavenly electricity’, generated by the Holy Spirit. In other words, just like we have electricity here on earth that powers most of our appliances, the anointing is the electricity of heaven. When you see an anointed fellow, that fellow has connected himself to the generator of the anointing in heaven, which is the Holy Spirit, and he now has the heavenly electricity flowing in him. Acts 1:8 says that you will receive power when the Holy Ghost comes upon you. It is that connection with the Holy Ghost that makes the anointing flow through you. You must note, however, that the anointing is not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the generator of the anointing. The Holy Spirit is God Himself.

How then do you connect with the Holy Spirit in order to get the anointing? The first thing you must note is that He is called the Holy Spirit because He cannot be near anything that is unholy. If you want to connect with the Holy Spirit, you must be holy. God will not anoint a sinner. Amos 3:3 says that two cannot walk together except they be agreed. If you are not holy, the Holy Spirit cannot work in you.

Also, just as you connect with a man when you speak his language, you connect with the Holy Spirit when you speak in tongues. The more you speak in tongues, the more heavenly electricity you are generating into your body and the more anointed you will be. You see, how anointed you are depends heavily on how much faith you have. Jude 1:20 says that you build up your holy faith by speaking in the Holy Ghost. So, the more you speak in the Holy Ghost, the greater your faith will be. The greater your faith, the more anointing you will have to do the impossible. You must note also that there are some levels of the anointing that you cannot reach if you don’t add regular fasting to your regular prayers (Matthew 17:21).

RCCG OPEN HEAVEN 3 APRIL 2024 REFLECTION:

Build up your faith by speaking in tongues regularly, and seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit if you are yet to receive it.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Samuel 14-16

HYMNAL:
Hymn 8 – I need Thee every hour
