We anoint our bodies daily, but we call it moisturizing. We also anoint our meats when preparing them to be cooked. We never think what we are doing or pay attention to the spiritual aspect of what we all do and take for granted. In the natural, anointing is the rubbing or smearing of oil or anything that contains oil. But in the spirit when we are anointed not only is it awesome, it’s for the purpose of consecration. When GOD anoints HIS chosen it’s because we are of high antiquity just as kings, prophets, and priest (apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors, and teachers).
Every child of the Living GOD is anointed, and we need to be aware of this fact. We have had our head anointed with GOD’s holy oil and we have been welcomed and are HIS honored guest. The oil that is used on us is fresh it’s not spoiled, stale or stagnant. Just as JESUS was anointed with fragrant oil on HIS head and feet so are, we.
I know that we have the HEALER living on the inside and by all those stripes that JESUS took for us when HE was beaten, we are healed in HIM. Not only that but on that cross, JESUS took every disease, illness, and sickness yet, for some reason our flesh is attacked. Therefore, we have been instructed to get ourselves to the elders (anointed ministers of GOD) to have them pray over us and they (me) will anoint the sick with oil in the name of our LORD CHRIST JESUS. In our rubbing oil on the sick it will be the prayer of faith and our laying our hands on the sick that JESUS the Healer will work through us so that the sick will recover.
Dear beloved siblings of mine in CHRIST JESUS, I want to leave you with this. We have an anointing from the Holy One/Spirit and it is through His teaching and speaking to us that we will be equipped with the knowledge that is crucial to us. The Holy Spirit is poured on us by the hand of CHRIST JESUS and in HIS Holy Spirit, we will know all not some but all HIS truth. We are established in CHRIST JESUS and HE has anointed us in GOD. The GOD that JESUS called upon on that cross hates sin because its lawless and nothing in it represents who GOD is. We are anointed with the oil of gladness; therefore we seem peculiar when we should be having a mental breakdown or stressed out due to the trials that we must go through. But when hard times hit us, we are not facing them alone, JESUS is right there with us making sure that we don’t fall and remain there, making sure that we don’t sit in our troubles but go through them. Oh, praise GOD and HIS SON CHRIST JESUS because the anointing remains in us. So, if we didn’t know, now we know.
