Seven Results of the Anointing

Psalms  89:20-29 (NKJV)

20 I have found My servant David; with My holy oil I have anointed him,

21 With whom My hand shall be established; also My arm shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not outwit him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him.

24 But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, and in My name his horn shall be exalted.

25 Also I will set his hand over the sea, and his right hand over the rivers.

26 He shall cry to Me, “You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.”

27 Also I will make him My firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy I will keep for him forever, and My covenant shall stand firm with him.

29 His seed also I will make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

This passage is talking about King David, but it also prophetically applies to us today because the Lord has anointed His Church with the 3-fold anointing of prophet, priest and king (Joel 2:28-29, 1 Peter 2:9).

Verse 20:  “I have found My servant David; with My holy oil I have anointed him”.

The anointing oil speaks of the Anointing of the Holy Spirit in us and upon us.  There are 7 primary results of the Anointing:

  1. Your life will be stabilized – vs 21a
  1. You will be strengthened – vs 21b  (strengthened in your physical health and in your inner man)
  1. Protection.  The devil cannot touch you – vs 22.
  1. God will fight your enemies – vs 23.
  1. God’s faithfulness and mercy shall never depart from your life – vs 24a.
  1. Your horn (authority) shall be exalted – vs 24b.  Your words shall not fall to the ground.  God will back up what you decree in the heavenly realm.
  1. God will use anointed men and women of God to influence nations – verses 25-29.  In Biblical symbolism, the sea and many waters are symbolic of the masses of peoples and nations (vs 25).

The firstborn (vs 27a) symbolizes possessing certain rights and privileges because of your position in Christ, receiving the inheritance as sons of God, and knowing who you are in Christ and having confidence.

Kings represent authority, power, influence, ruling and reigning with Christ, and God’s Kingdom being spread throughout the entire earth (vs 27b).  This anointing is passed down to your children, and to your descendants (vs 29).

The Anointing Will Turn Your Wilderness Into a Beautiful Garden, by the Spirit.

Isaiah 32:15 (NIV)

Till the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest.

Isaiah 35:1-2 (ASV)

The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.  It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon: they shall see the glory of Jehovah, the excellency of our God.

Isaiah 35:6-7 (NAS)

Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb will shout for joy.  For waters will break forth in the wilderness and streams in the Arabah.  And the scorched land will become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water.

Isaiah 41:18-20 (NAS)

I will open rivers on the bare heights, and springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land fountains of water.  I will put the cedar in the wilderness, the acacia, and the myrtle, and the olive tree; I will place the juniper in the desert, together with the box tree and the cypress, that they may see and recognize, and consider and gain insight as well, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.

Isaiah 51:3 (NAS)

Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places.  And her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of a melody.

The Anointing Will Teach You all Things

The Anointing Will Teach You all Things

1 John 2:27   “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” NKJV

This Scripture is not saying that we do not need pastors and teachers to teach us the Word and teach us about the things of the Spirit (as that would contradict Ephesians 4:11-12 and Matthew 4:23, and many other Scriptures).

The pattern of Jesus in which He modeled for us in Matthew 4:23 is to:

  1. teach
  2. preach
  3. heal the sick in Jesus’ Name

Ephesians 4:11-12 says, “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”

When it says in 1 John 2:27 (and xref Luke 12:12 and John 14:26) that the Holy Spirit (or Anointing) will teach you all things, or teach you what to say, it’s referring to:

 

  • The Holy Spirit teaching you to discern between truth and error.
  • The Holy Spirit teaching you things in the Word, giving you insights or pointing out truths in the Scriptures that man did not teach you (because no teacher knows everything).
  • The Holy Spirit giving you wisdom and revelation, illumination and understanding.
  • The Holy Spirit guiding you in the what, how, when, and where in regards to each situation and decision in your life.
  • Many receive the ability to play musical instruments, to learn a particular skill, to excel in business, to prosper financially, to invent something, to have creative ideas by the Anointing teaching them.
  • Words of knowledge and words of wisdom (1 Cor 12:8).  He reveals facts of the present, past and future.  He shows you things to come.  He gives you supernatural understanding about something that normally you would not know.  He gives you strategies and ideas from Heaven.
  • In certain situations where you have to speak or answer questions, He tells you what to say.
  • He brings all things to your remembrance when you need it.
  • He reveals to you the Father and Son.
  • He warns you, prompts you, leads you and at times forbids you to do something or go somewhere
  • He instructs you what to say and what not to say, and how to act and not act, around different people.
  • He is your personal coach.

Three Anointings of David and in Book of Acts

Three Anointings of David and in the Book of Acts

The Three Anointings of King David

David was anointed with the Holy anointing oil on three different occasions.

The second anointing was a higher level of anointing than the first anointing.

The third anointing was an even higher level of anointing than the first and second anointings.

  1. First anointing – the call into ministry.  This is when David was just a shepherd teenager and Samuel anointed him as King.
  1. Second anointing – becoming king over Hebron (a territory).
  1. Third anointing – becoming king over all Israel (the entire nation).

 

The Three Anointings in the Book of Acts

  1. Acts 2 = endued with Power from on High when the Holy Spirit came to the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost, filling everyone with the Holy Ghost and they all spoke with tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
  1. Acts 2-3 = The Church was born.  3,000 were added in one day.
  1. Acts 4 = Miracles, healings, speaking the Word with boldness, with great power gave the apostles witness.

You can see the progression of the levels of anointing in Acts.  It started with 120 people filled with the Holy Spirit.  Then 3,000 people are added to the Church in one day.

Then the anointing intensified where miracles, healings, deliverances, signs, wonders, the dead being raised, speaking with boldness, and the apostles flowing in great power of the Spirit were taking place in the Church.

Another way of looking at the 3 levels of anointing in the Book of Acts:

  1. Acts 2 = begins with a small number of people (120)
  1. Acts 2-3 = addition takes place (3,000 added in one day)
  1. Acts 4 and beyond = multiplication (great multitudes)

The levels of anointing begin with a seed, remnant or portion.

Then it progresses to addition.

Then it progresses to multiplication and greater multiplication.

This progression of anointing applies to your ministry, to your finances, to your business, to your family and loved ones being saved and blessed, and to your life in general.

You are anointed!

2 Corinthians 1:21  “Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God.”  NKJV

Three Levels of the Anointing in the Life of the Believer

Benny Hinn Conference Notes

Jubilee Christian Center, San Jose, California

January 24-25, 2008

Three Levels of the Anointing in the Life of the Believer

  1. Salvation

At the point of initial salvation, all believers are filled with the Holy Spirit when we invite Jesus to come into our heart.  God anoints all believers to hear from God for themselves, to discern between truth and error and to successfully live the Christian life.

The next step after initial salvation is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is to be “endued with power” from on High (Luke 24:49).

Salvation = filled with the Spirit

Baptism of the Holy Spirit = endued with the Spirit

Both salvation and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit involve being filled with God’s Spirit, although the Baptism is a deeper infilling or level of the Spirit.  A believer who does not believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues is still saved, loves God and has His presence living on the inside of them.  But they could have so much more of God by receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

The Baptism is an enduement of power and is the door or entrance to operating in the Gifts of the Spirit.  The Baptism of the Spirit enables the believer to walk in greater victory in their Christian life, to live a life where healings, miracles and the supernatural is a common part of life, and to enter into deeper levels in God in worship, the Word and communion with the Holy Spirit.

  1. Ministry

The second level of anointing is when God anoints the believer for the particular ministry that God has called him or her to do.  Everyone in the Body of Christ is called to be in ministry.  There is to be no competition or jealousies, or comparisons among believers, as each of us is given an assignment from the Master (Jesus) to fulfill.  Not all are called to clergy ministry, but all are called to fulfill a specific ministry assignment that God has given each of us to do.

The believer does not have to go in their own strength to minister, but goes in the Name of the Lord and is endued with the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit to carry out their particular ministry assignment.  God’s anointing for ministry equips them with the skill, ability, wisdom and favor to function in their area of ministry.  God’s anointing for ministry will bring about fruitfulness.

Often times a person called to a ministry involving speaking before an audience literally feels an anointing descend upon them as they begin to minister, and they may even be a changed person full of boldness and authority while under the influence of that anointing if normally they are shy and quiet.  Then after 2 or 3 hours after ministering, the anointing may lift.

The same example could hold true of those anointed to prophesy.  Normally they may be reserved and quiet, but when the anointing comes on them for ministry, they are a completely different person until the anointing lifts after they are finished ministering.

People called to the healing ministry, while under the influence of the anointing for ministry, may feel literal heat, electricity and power coming out of their hands, or may operate in words of knowledge, and be unusually bold.

  1. Authority

Being anointed with authority in the Spirit is the 3rd level that is higher and deeper than ministry alone.  When flowing in this anointing, your words have the power to plant or uproot.  Your words carry weight, and none of your words fall to the ground.  Your words have the power to decree and command (as led by the Spirit and coming into agreement with and repeating what the Spirit is saying, and speaking under the influence of the Holy Spirit. (It’s not from the flesh commanding or decreeing things.  If it’s just the flesh, it will produce no fruit.) When you decree and command, then God backs up what you say.

The anointing for authority also involves the area of declaring deliverance to the captives, and the captives are delivered and chains are broken.

The anointing for authority involves creative miracles – decreeing and speaking things that are not as though they were, commanding them to be, and it happens just as you say.

The anointing for authority involves an anointing for breakthrough.

Authority is the kingly anointing – to rule and reign with Christ and know who you are in Christ.  To make decrees in the heavenly realms, and it comes to pass.  To have authority over demons and satan, and all powers of wickedness.  To cast out devils.  To raise the dead.

Authority also involves taking charge of distractions and people who would mock or cause interruptions in services, which weaken the flow of the Spirit and thus grieves the Holy Spirit.  You must take charge of distractions from people who try to prevent others from hearing the Word, from distractions that hinder people from hearing the Gospel of Salvation and receiving Christ as Savior, from distractions that make it difficult for people to receive their healing and miracle, and distractions that discourage others in regards to receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit or distract the flow of the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit.

Taking authority in this type of situation would involve stopping ministering for a minute and openly telling the troublemakers [those are my words not what Benny said] to either be quiet or leave, and if need be, having the ushers escort them out.  It also involves making it clear that there are to be no cell phones ringing and people talking, no constant talking to your neighbor, whispering, goofing off, constantly going in and out of the sanctuary during the worship and the preaching of the Word unless it’s a dire medical emergency.

The anointing for authority involves situations in which Satanic plants are sent to churches and meetings to try to cause distractions and the demise of the pastors and leadership.

Sometimes people who cause distractions are not a Satanic plant, it’s just that they can be rude, inconsiderate, immature, disrespectful and have not been taught to keep quiet and not talk to their neighbor, or on the cell phone, during the worship and preaching. I’m talking about people who are in the habit of talking during most of the service, and they do this all the time. When I was a child we were taught to not talk or goof off during the worship and the Word. If we got restless we could color in a coloring book or read a book. It seems like today so many parents don’t teach their children to be quiet during the services, and they let them talk and run around.

Sometimes distractions are caused by demons manifesting in people. There’s a time to cast out demons (as Jesus demonstrated in His ministry). Then there is a time when you are to command the demons to be silent (as Jesus also did in His ministry).

On rare occasions, the anointing for authority involves, when directed by the Spirit, pronouncing judgment on those who rise up to try to destroy the work of God, and the Lord backs up your words and He carries out the judgment.

An example is Ananias and Sapphira.  The apostle Peter and other apostles pronounced a judgment on them for not only lying to them, but for also lying to the Holy Ghost.

Another example is when Elijah pronounced a judgment on the young boys who mocked him because of his baldness.  He probably was literally bald, but the Scriptures imply that the mocking was deeper than just making fun of his lack of hair, but mocking the anointing on his life.

In the ministry of William Branham, there was a situation that arose in one of the meetings in which he pronounced a judgment (by the leading of the Spirit) upon a certain man.  This man had come up to the stage in the healing line, claiming that he had cancer and for William Branham to lay hands on him so that he would be healed.

The man lied – he did not have cancer.  His intent was to make a false claim about having cancer, in order to “expose” Branham as being a false prophet (because he didn’t believe that God reveals things to His prophets by the words of knowledge).  The man was out to prove that Branham just “made up” all those words of knowledge about people.  When the man claimed to be sick with cancer, the Holy Spirit told Branham that the man was a fake and was lying, and then Branham told the man in front of everyone there that he lied about having cancer.

Then Branham pronounced a judgment on the man for lying not only to him, but to the Holy Ghost, and told him that since he lied about having cancer, that cancer would come on his body immediately and he would be dead by the next day.  It happened exactly as what Branham pronounced.

A curse and a judgment are two different things.

A curse is a prayer or verbal words intending injury, harm or misfortune to come to someone (usually based on hate, jealousy, and wicked intents of the heart).  We are not called to curse.

A judgment is the discernment between good and evil, what is right and what is wrong, and based on the evidence and situation, making a judicial decision and pronouncing a verdict and the consequence/punishment (if applicable) according to the laws established by God.

The authority to pronounce a judgment is granted to you from a Higher Authority (God). It applies to true God ordained Apostles who walk in greater levels of authority.

The anointing to pronounce a judgment is not the same thing as Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”  In Matthew 7:1, it’s not referring to a judicial decision based on right and wrong, but to be critical and despise someone and their shortcomings, and to be very condemning of others, while you yourself are not perfect.  This type of judging involves pride – of pointing out the faults of others, while ignoring the plank in your own eye.  This type of judgment involves judging others for their actions when you don’t know all the facts and have not heard all sides of the story, nor have been in their shoes.

This differs from a judgment made by a judge and jury in a courtroom, based on discerning and separating the facts and reaching a verdict.

On very rare occasions is a judgment pronounced.  The church, as a whole, is not ready for things to go back to the way it was in the early Church in Acts. The glory of the Lord has the power to heal and bring about miracles.  Yet one can also perish in the Glory by things such as irreverence, profaning the holy things of God, lying to the Holy Ghost, and trying to destroy someone’s ministry or discredit them.
