Open Heavens Devotional for Saturday October 18, 2014: THE NEW ANOINTING


Memorise: And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
Isaiah 10:27

Read: Acts 5:12–16
12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Our Lord Jesus Christ did nothing without the anointing (Luke 4:18). He performed no miracles, healed no sick, delivered no oppressed of the devil and did no good until the Holy Spirit fell on Him (John 1:28-34; John 2:11). What is the anointing? Literally, anointing can be defined as applying oil or ointment on a person – especially as part of a religious ceremony. However, the anointing represents the power of God transmitted through men in the form of spiritual electricity. Electricity is electricity, but there are differences in voltage. In like manner, the anointing that will cure cancer is different from the one for headaches. You need the anointing from God because it is glorious, powerful, active and dynamic. Satan and his evil agents also anoint. Witches, wizards, magicians and tricksters are anointed of the devil for diabolical purposes. However, the anointing of God is the best.

You need the anointing from God because it brings authority and power (Acts 10:38). The anointing teaches (1 John 2:27). It is the anointing that qualifies you for God’s service; enduing puny man with a touch of divinity (Hebrews 2:4). God’s anointing always results in unquestionable success. When the anointing comes upon a person, curses are broken. Are you under the influence of a curse? The anointing destroys yokes. Signs of a curse include: a sickness or a disease whose cause is unknown or which defies all treatments; barrenness of a type where all medical examinations show that you are normal; repeatedly experiencing failure on the brink of success; mysterious and continuous tragedies in a particular family. If you observe any of these signs in your life or family, the Lord shall set you free in Jesus’ Name.

There are two types of anointing from God. These are the old anointing and the new anointing. The old anointing was the type that Elijah had – the type that called down fire for the destruction of God’s enemy. The new anointing was the type Elisha had – the type whose bones raised the dead. You need the new anointing for deliverance. This type of anointing can be transferred through conduction. For you to receive it, you must be a conductor and not an insulator. It can also be transferred from one suitable vessel to another. The anointing can also flow from the spoken or written word of God to the sick (Psalm 107:20). How prepared are you for the New anointing?

Action Point: To receive the new anointing, you must be born-again, sanctified and baptized with the Holy Ghost.

Bible in one year: 2 Samuel 3:1-5:16; Proverbs 10:8-21
