It is impossible to serve GOD with ease without the Anointing of GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. You can sing, write, work, run businesses by your own intelligence. But when it comes to influencing the human heart toward the direction of GOD, you need the anointing. GOD is so kind that anyone and everyone can have the anointing of GOD. That 'thing' you feel or experience that feels good when you sing worship songs from forty years ago with the likes of Don Moen, Ron Kenoly, and such is named the anointing of THE HOLY SPIRIT. It can be gained and it can be lost. Today, we look at how to gain the Anointing of GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.
When our LORD JESUS CHRIST was departing this world, HE breathed on his disciples and said, "Receive THE HOLY SPIRIT. Whosoever's sins you forgive is forgiven, and Whosoever's sins you retain, are retained." That is a lot of power for GOD to give human beings. But it was given to a specific set of human beings. Believers whom CHRIST had trained for three consecutive years. They were ready.
How do you receive the anointing of GOD? Through an anointed person laying hands on you. That was how I received the anointing of GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. Once GOD imparts on you, there is no going back. You can however, lose the anointing through sin, lack of repentance when you sin, pride, dishonor to GOD, taking GOD'S glory, etc. If you sinned, the blockage is not final. As quickly as possible, repent and your anointing will begin to flow again.
The easiest place to enjoy the anointing of GOD is in the place of worship. When we lift our hands up to GOD and HE graces us with HIS holy Presence. It's beautiful.
The anointing is Heaven saying GOD sees you and is trusting you. You must take that seriously. Others may do something wrong, but when you remember what you carry, you must respectfully, refuse to join them. GOD will help you. :)
Carrying the anointing of GOD is a responsibility. We enjoy it most of the time, but we must remember that GOD entrusted us with a part of HIM. We must be accountable. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT will train you, and guide you on how to use HIS anointing for the greater good.
Finally, the anointing of GOD is a rare privilege to experience something of GOD while on earth. Treasure it. Respect it. Honor it. And, preserve it. Remember, whatever GOD does through you, return all the Glory to GOD.
