You Are an Anointed!
Weve thrown around the word anointing in religious circles for years without really understanding what it means. But if were to walk in the power of the gospel, we must let it become a reality to us. The anointing is Gods presence, His essence. Its the thing that makes God be God. The anointing is God on flesh enabling flesh (you and me) to do those things that are impossible for flesh to do. For instance, flesh cant heal anyone. Even Jesus flesh couldnt heal anyone. His flesh came from Mary. It was as human as hers. Yet His perfect, sinless flesh speaking the words of a perfect, sinless God, caused Gods Anointing to be upon Him without measure (see John 3:34). Its not hard for our minds to grasp the fact that the anointing was upon Jesus. Whats tough to comprehend is that the same burden-removing, yoke-destroying anointing that was on Him is available to us. Oh, Brother Copeland, that cant be. After all, our flesh is not sinless. No, but God counts it that way if well stay under the blood. Thats what grace is all aboutgiving us the anointing when we dont deserve it! Our very name, Christians, means the anointeds. Just like Jesus couldnt heal in His own flesh, neither can you. But in the anointing, Jesus did bring healing, and so can you. You see, everything you need to do today can be done in the Anointed One and His Anointing. His Anointing is on you, in you and all over you. Because of it, you have been enabled to do things you couldnt normally do…whether its day-to-day responsibilities, or laying hands on someone and releasing the healing power of God. You can be and do everything God created you to be and do in His Anointing. You are an anointed! 2 Chronicles 31-33; Hebrews 13; James 1 I have been anointed and given an unction by the Holy One. 1 John 2:20, The Amplified Bible
