It’s a subject on many people’s minds but the anointing comes at a price. God doesn’t just give His anointing away easily and when we have it God wants us to use it. The Anointing has increased in my life and so has the responsibility. Here is a simple article as to why God would increase your anointing.
I bought a book once by Benny Hinn on the Anointing and I bought it as I wanted to learn about it and have it in my life. I might not have been ready to receive the information and have since given the book away but when I read it, I didn’t seem to learn anything.
I once heard a guy that come to a church I was attending and he talked about the anointing. He said something simple. He said:
The Anointing is simply: The Power to Do the Job
Now depending on how BIG the job you have to do is, that measures how much of the Holy Spirit’s anointing is in your life. I have realized in the past three months the Anointing in my life has gone up.
Each week 2000 people read something I have written in the Internet on EzineArticles or somewhere else. There is an Anointing of the Holy Spirit on everything I write and there exists and Anointing in my life as I write the things that I write.
I also manage a team of prophetic people and we do free prophecies on the Internet. For a few years they came in at a rate of about twenty requests per week and now in the last three months that figure has shot up to forty five requests per week.
With this increase I have had to promote a team leader and mentor her to run a team of prophets like me to cater to this demand. In these three months I have noticed the Holy Spirit has increased my Anointing in my life.
I am finding people I know want to sit down and have a long chat with me in the past few months. As a prophet I am fairly intense and people kind of give me a wide birth and yet some of the people I have forged a relationship with are starting to want to spend quality time with me.
This is a sign to me that they really want to hear what the Holy Spirit wants to say through me. As now quite a lot these days in an hour conversation the Holy Spirit directs the conversation for me to say what God wants me to say to each person.
When you understand that the Anointing is the Request personal prophecy Power to Do the Job you have to decide to get busy for God for Him to increase the Anointing in your life. For God to increase His Anointing in your life there has to be a reason, so first of all if you want it to increase you need to decide what you want to do for God in a bigger way and go after it.
It’s wonderful to have the presence of God and when you worship you can feel the presence of God. But it’s quite another thing for the Anointing of God to come upon you when you are in a conversation and the person that is listening is so transfixed at what is being shared they simply can’t leave until the message is shared in its entirety.
Now the Holy Spirit of God knows every persons timetable and if they have to really go and get back to work or if they can take and extra half an hour for lunch to listen. The Holy Spirit knows when that certain person who really needs to hear what He has to say through you is going to have the time and the Anointing will only drop on you the time that they need to stay.
I have heard people say the Anointing is addictive. Benny Hinn seems to talk about the Anointing a lot as I have heard him talk about it. It is simply the power of the Holy Spirit and it should be respected and not talked about in any cheap way. But I have heard on a few occasions people say the Anointing is addictive.
I can testify when I sit down to prophesy over a person that I really enjoy God speaking though me and I love the wonderful peaceful blanket that seems to come all over me.
But we all have the Holy Spirit and it is my aim to speak to you if you don’t know much of the Power of God to get a bit of that into your life. If you want more of the Holy Spirit, why don’t you get serious with God and ask Him what can you do for Him
I know that we need people to prophesy on our teams on my website and I know that we can pray for you to get the gift of prophecy. I know also that we need intercessors on our website that can pray over the prophecies that are done and if you are good in prayer, then we can use you.
But that’s just me throwing a few ideas out there for you. I am sure if you put your mind to it you can come up with something to do for the body of Christ.
Just remember you have to get busy for God for Him to give you the Power.
It’s no use having a Powerful car in a garage. It’s no use God increasing the Power of His Anointing of His in your life if you are not going to do a job for Him.
