MEMORISE:
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God even thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. – Hebrews 1:9.

READ: Acts 8:18-24 (KJV)

18. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

19. Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

20. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

21. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter; for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

22. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

23. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

24. Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.

MESSAGE:

The word ‘anointing’ is used in several passages of the Bible in reference to the consecration of prophets, kings, priests and things devoted to the worship of God.By this consecration, these persons or things are set apart and empowered to act in God’s power as His representatives on earth.The anointing therefore refers to the power of God made available through His manifest presence.

We see the manifestation of what anointing is, how it operates and why it is giving in Luke 5:17, which says:

“And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, and there was Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which was come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them”.

It is something special to witness the outpouring of God’s anointing, which is usually accompanied by His manifest power and magnificent presence.

Whenever God decides to reveal His power through the operation of His anointing, natural laws become temporarily suspended, and we see miracles, signs and wonders of great magnitude.
Consequently, children of God always desire such rare opportunities to experience the supernatural, just as people gathered from far and near in Luke 5:17.

However, God’s anointing is a free gift that money cannot buy. Even the most precious jewel on earth cannot be offered in exchange for it.

Because our God does not cast His pearls before swine, certain conditions must be met by anyone who desire to operate in His anointing (Matthew 7:6).

(1 Kings 18:30-38) shows some deliberate steps Prophets Elijah took to activate the anointing of God.

First, when the appointed time of worship came, he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down. He did everything orderly and meticulously, following divine instructions.
Thereafter, he calls upon the Name of the Lord in prayer and worship, and God answered by fire.
Therefore, if you want to activate God’s anointing in your life, you must first rebuild the altar of God and present yourself before Him as a living sacrifice without any blemish (Romans 12:1).

You must be a true worshipper who worships God in spirit and in truth, making sure to adhere strictly to His pattern and instructions as revealed in the Bible.

Finally, you must learn to wait patiently for God. There was a waiting period before the fire of the Holy Spirit fell on the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:4).The anointing makes you a terror to the kingdom of darkness and a notable representative of the Most High God. May the fire of God’s anointing fall mightily upon you today in the Name of Jesus.

HYMNAL:

Hymn 11 – When the power of God

1. When the power of God descended
On the day of Pentecost
All the days of waiting ended
They received the Holy Ghost

CHORUS:
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
And baptize every one

2. Tongues of flame came down upon them
And they preach’d the word in pow’r
Listening multitudes awakened
Turn’d to God that very hour

CHORUS:
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
And baptize every one

We are all of one accord
Lord fulfil just now the promise
That is given in Thy word

CHORUS:
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
And baptize every one

Grant the blessing that we need
Flood our souls with wondrous glory
While the pray’r of faith we plead.

O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
O Lord send Thy pow’r just now
And baptize every one
