SCRIPTURE: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” – Acts 1:8.
If you look at our memory verse, you will see another wonderful thing about the anointing. Anointing enables you to win souls for Christ, to depopulate hell fire and to populate the kingdom of God. Anointing is for service and it is not for decoration. If you have not started winning souls for the kingdom of God, this is the time that you must begin. It is never too late to start. And ye shall receive power and be my witnesses, so says the Lord. From your local environment, you can spread out to other places. Children of salvation that are ripe for harvest are in other religions and places where the gospel has not reached.
In the book of Joel 2:28-30, we can see another beautiful wonder: the anointing does not discriminate. Whether you are black or white, male or female, poor or rich, young or old, the anointing of God can locate you and fall upon you. Sometime ago, somebody told me about a woman who was fond of singing anointed Christian songs whenever she was in the kitchen cooking. One day, as she was cooking, the Holy Spirit fell upon her and she broke out in tongues. The woman was barren and she started prophesying about her challenges and the solution. That year did not end before she took in and had a set of twins. The Holy Spirit does not discriminate. Once your heart is open and focused on God, He will come upon you and the first thing He will do is to break your own yokes before He will use you for others.
Dearly beloved, the anointing can manifest as oil, and we get that through the anointing oil. Psalm 23:5 says, “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”. You have joy when you are anointed.
