When Zachariaus was told that he and Elizabeth would. in their old age, have a child. He was told his name would be John, and he would bring joy and gladness, and be filled with the Holy Spirit, from the womb.
He would be the Prophet of Prophets, to announce the coming King.
“And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
We have been given the Great Commission, to make ready a people, prepared for the Lord. We have done our best, but do we teach and preach, with power?
Do we see signs and wonders following? Or do we have the power of persuasion? Are people lining up to hear us share the Gospel?
Do they line up to hear Me? No, not a chance. lol. I share a pitiful, powerless Gospel. The Anointing is not on me, No one is healed, few are saved, lives barely change.
We must pray for a Powerful Anointing on our ministries. We need to demonstrate the Spirit and Power of God. When we accomplish that we will see Luke 1:16, become a reality today.
“And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.”
Billy Graham was Anointed of God, with the Power of Persuasion. (He was an Evangelist). People heard the voice and love of the Lord, and multitudes flocked to hear, and to be touched, and changed by, the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Was Billy Graham so different from you and I?
Is it possible for us to enjoy the Anointing of God in our lives? I believe it only depends on how much of ourselves we are willing to allow the Lord to control.
Are we obedient in the seemingly meaningless things? The giving of ourselves with our time and or money?
It could be as simple as listening and praying for the lost or hurting. When we share His Yoke, our burden is light and His yoke is easy. We will find rest…
We must follow the example of Paul.
1 Corinthians 2: 4-5
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
We have allowed man’s Wisdom to become our standard.
We no longer have the Relationship or Knowledge of the Lord, embeded within us, His Power and Wisdom, are just out of reach.
I must Seek His Face, cry out for His Anointing, allow Him to change my heart and mind, so He is all I need, and desire.
Thanks for visiting,

We all have the relationship we want with God. I desire a more intimate one.
