We see that when you are anointed you become a prized possession of God and because of the anointing oil you become a slippery one and nothing can touch you. The enemy cannot catch you!
You defeat the enemy and become a superman or a superwoman!
Now let’s see what are the other privileges of being the anointed one:-
5) He can set others free.
When you have the anointing of God upon you, you can help people come out of their bondages and set them free.
Do you know that millions of people in the world are still in bondage?
And internally billions of people are in captivity.
Around seven centuries ago, there was a great prophet of God. His name was Isaiah and he prophesied the Ministry of Jesus.
The Year of the Lord’s Favor
61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.
The scripture talks about the anointing of Jesus and because of the anointing look what all he has done!
It says the anointing is to bind the broken hearted,
Proclaim freedom for the captives,
release from darkness to the Prisoners,
When the spirit of the lord comes , the seven fold ministry comes forth.
It is like a rainbow, 7 colours.
You can categorise the different types of Ministries that Jesus was doing there.
There is preaching of the Gospel to the poor
Proclamation of freedom for the captives
The year of the Lord’s favour
Joyfulness for the depressed.
So one anointing with different Ministries!
Isaiah talks about 7 different kinds of operations of the Holy Spirit, so when you get the anointing of the Holy Spirit you start doing these things.
Jesus modeled for us, he showed us what we have to do. He did it and he said as I am going to the Father, you have to do greater things!
Some of the people reading this today, you’re gonna rise up and do greater things!
You are going to minister to the Lord under the same anointing. This anointing will help you to set the captives free.
We are living in independent India, independent citizens and we are proud of that but still these independent citizens are in captivity, in jail and are still in bondages. For example many of them are still in spiritual darkness.
2 Corinthians 4:4
4 The God of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
God is anointing you to set them free!
So you can open the spiritual eyes of people and you can proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. The Bible says that this is a day of Salvation, Today not tomorrow.
When you are anointed, you can comfort all who mourn.
People mourn because of many things but the anointing that you carry will comfort them.
All the grief and sorrow will be taken away as you talk to them.
You will bestow them a crown of beauty instead of ashes.
What do you understand when we speak about ashes?
To get a handful of ashes you have to burn something, ashes show destruction. Even people who are very well dressed are also burnt from the inside.
Isaiah also prophesied Joy instead of mourning.
When people are with their friends or when they are busy socializing they forget everything but once they return home they are downcast by everything again.
When the anointing operates they get the oil of gladness, that means their hearts will be healed and memories will be healed and they will start praising the Lord and restore themselves.
When you have the anointing you will help people to build themselves.
Seek for the anointing of God!
