Ask for a Revelation
Some people think the fire and smoke in that verse refers to destruction. But it doesn’t. Fire and smoke are manifestations of God’s Glory. That scripture is talking about the greatest outpouring of the power and Anointing of God ever seen on this earth.
We are already in the beginning stages of that outpouring. Where is it coming from? It’s coming from within believers like you and me. And it will keep increasing as the river of the anointing overflows the banks of our hearts and floods into our homes, our workplaces, our neighborhoods and our world.
But let me warn you, the increase is not going to come while we sit around watching tv and filling our time with the ordinary details of life. It’s going to come as we dig into the Word of God and build our faith in the anointing. The more we learn to expect the anointing and align ourselves with it, the more manifestations of it we will see.
So get out your Bible and start studying. Every time you see the word Christ, translate it and meditate on the fact that it means “the Anointed One and His Anointing.” Learn how to protect the anointing and how to live your life in such a way that the Holy Ghost can work freely through you.
In other words, ask God for a revelation of what it really means to be anointed with the Anointing of Jesus, to be baptized in the Holy Ghost with God’s own burden-removing, yoke-destroying, world-changing, devil-chasing, healing, delivering, explosive, supernatural, universe-creating power. Ask for a revelation of what it really means to be a Christian.
Once you walk in that revelation, the world around you will never be the same again.
Speak the Word
I can do all things through the Anointed One and His Anointing which strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
