Today, we will continue in the discussion of what the anointing does to the anointed:
6. The one so anointed comes into a special place of divine protection – Ps. 105:14-15 “He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” I Sam. 26:9 “And David said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the LORD’S anointed, and be guiltless?”
7. The anointed man is sheltered from the strife of tongues. He is not permitted to defend himself or justify himself. He becomes God’s ‘protégé’ and God is ever on hand to justify His calling on that man. The anointing is the justification of the call. Read Numbers 17:1-5, 8 God always justifies the anointed man.
8. The anointed man comes to a place where he is literally overshadowed by the Almighty Himself. This is very serious. The anointed man brings and carries the presence of God. His presence is the presence of God.
9. Psalm 84:10 “A day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.” This means what you will achieve with the anointing in one day will be better than all your effort for 1,000 days put together.
Above all else we need the anointing. This can never be over emphasized. The scriptures say it over and over – “It is neither by might nor by power, but by My Spirit saith the Lord.” Zech. 4:6
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of God to know how to apply the understanding of the anointing to every area of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
