Should we Seek the Anointing?  theunfetteredpreacher 

Should we Seek the Anointing for our lifes, for our Service to God?   Yes, definitely. 

In the Old Testament,  they would Anoint or Consecrate  (separate out),  a place, a thing or even the High Priest  for Holy or Sacred use.

Every firstborn male,  was to be dedicated to the Lord, for His use and pleasure.  

What?

Exodus 13:15
Names of God Bible (NOG)
When Pharaoh was too stubborn to let us go, Yahweh killed every firstborn male in Egypt—human and animal. This is why we sacrifice every firstborn male to Yahweh and buy every firstborn son back from the Lord.
(Buy back, they paid a price to the Lord for their firstborn a form of sacrifice, of dedication to the Lord.)

The Lord wanted a people dedicated to serving Him.  He chose the tribe of Levi, of Moses because both Levi and Moses, did His will instinctively. (Stood tall and acted on the behalf of others)

Later, the Levites became the substitute for the firstborn males.  So Moses brother, Aaron became the first high priest. 

Exodus 28:41
And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

Today, we Christians are to be the ones Anointed, Consecrated,  Set Apart for His Service.

1 Peter 2:9
Names of God Bible (NOG)
However, you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people who belong to God. You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”

What happens to the Anointed, Consecrated, Sanctified to God? 

Saul was given a new heart by God and other signs followed.

1 Samuel 10:1
[ Saul Anointed by Samuel ] “Samuel took a flask of olive oil, poured it on Saul’s head, kissed him, and said, “Yahweh* has anointed you to be ruler of his people Israel. You will rule his people and save them from all their enemies. This will be the sign that Yahweh has anointed you to be ruler of his people.”  *(KJV: the Lord)

1 Samuel 10:9-10
Names of God Bible (NOG)
Saul’s Anointing Confirmed by Signs

When Saul turned around to leave Samuel, Elohim changed Saul’s attitude*. That day all these signs happened.    When Saul came to the hill, a group of prophets came to meet him, and the Ruach Elohim** came over him. He prophesied with them.”*(KJV:  God gave Saul a new heart.) **(KJV:  Spirit of God)

David received the Anointing. 

1 Samuel 16:13
Samuel took the flask of olive oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers. The Ruach Yahweh came over David and stayed with him from that day on. Then Samuel left for Ramah.”

The Spirit of the Lord came over and stayed with David, from that time onward.

Saints, should we not desire this in our lifes? 

 Do we not need the comfort, guidance, teaching and leading of the Holy Spirit to do the Work of the Lord?

The Anointing is ours to be used for His Service,  if we only obey and believe. 

Psalm 45:7

Names of God Bible (NOG)

You have loved what is right and hated what is wrong.

That is why Elohim, your Elohim, has anointed you,  rather than your companions, with the oil of joy.

Hebrews 1:9
Names of God Bible (NOG)
You have loved what is right and hated what is wrong.
That is why God, your God,
anointed you,  rather than your companions, with the oil of joy
.”

The Anointing,  the OIL OF JOY… who doesn’t want joy in their lives?  David prayed, “Return unto me, the JOY of THY SALVATION. “

Saints, Christians seem to think they choose the Anointed,  Baptists, seem to hire and fire at will. 

 They are happy to bring in or kick out whoever, they choose to  lead them, in their church.

Sorry folks, the building isn’t the church, you are, and you are not in charge of who leads you.

You may choose to follow Gods Anointed, or not, but it is God that places the anointed one, the leader of His flock. 

Psalm 132:10
Names of God Bible (NOG)
For the sake of your servant David,
do not reject your anointed one
.”

Psalm 105:15
Names of God Bible (NOG)
 “Do not touch my anointed ones
or harm my prophets.

Isaiah 61:1-2
Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Lord Will Anoint His Servant with His Spirit

The Ruach of Adonay Yahweh is with me
because Yahweh has anointed me
to deliver good news to humble people.
He has sent me
to heal those who are brokenhearted,
to announce that captives will be set free
and prisoners will be released.
He has sent me
to announce the year of Yahweh’s good will
and the day of our Elohim’s vengeance,
to comfort all those who grieve
.”

The Spirit of the Lord was with Jesus, had Anointed Jesus, to spread the Gospel,  to heal the brokenhearted,  to set free those bound up, chained, lost in sin and death.

To proclaim the Good News, God with us, the hope of glory.  That we can walk with the Lord, as Adam did, in the cool of the day.  We can live in and enjoy the presence of God.

IT MAKES ME WANT TO SHOUT.

Jesus said:

John 14:12-14

Names of God Bible (NOG)
 “I can guarantee this truth: Those who believe in me will do the things that I am doing. They will do even greater things because I am going to the Father. 

I will do anything you ask the Father in my name so that the Father will be given glory because of the Son.  

 If you ask me to do something, I will do it.”

We are the Anointed of God in the world today.  We need to learn to live in the Spirit, to operate in the Spirit,  to believe and receive the blessings of God, The Anointing of the Spirit. 


(Don’t be a fire blanket,  stoke the fire, feed the fire, become the fire… Let the ZEAL OF THE LORD CONSUME YOU!)

That His will may be done.  

It will not happen, if we continue on in our own power.   

We need Jesus Christ himself in charge by the Power of His Holy Spirit.   Allow Him to work in you, now, today is the day….   Amen
