The Purpose for Anointing
Sunday April 29, 2012 – 11a Service
Theme – The anointing is God’s empowerment on a person’s life. Anointing comes to specific individuals at specific places at specific points in time to accomplish specific tasks.
o Anointing cannot visibly be seen.
o God gives anointing to whomever He wants.
o God gives anointing even to individuals of low stature.
· The Bible is a book of:
o The Kingdom
· The different kingdoms with which we interact
o The Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33)
§ The Kingdom of God is a sovereign kingdom. It is eternal. Faith is the dominant currency.
o The kingdom of the devil (Matthew 12:25-26)
§ The devil’s kingdom is strong, but its goal is to cause weakness.
o The kingdom of the world (Luke 4:5)
§ Satan has the power to control this kingdom.
o The kingdom of men (Daniel 4:17)
§ God rules in this kingdom
§ In this kingdom we function through anointing.
· Attributes of anointing
o Anointing cannot be seen. It can only be felt.
o Anointing can be cruel. It requires us to make changes in our lives so we can accommodate the anointing.
o Anointing requires us to raise the quality of our standards, purpose, values, and relationships.
o When anointing comes there is going to be a specific assignment.
· What to expect with anointing
o You will be emboldened.
o You will have trials. Some trials are distractions caused by the devil designed to cause you to focus on something other than the purpose of your anointing.
o Your life may dramatically and suddenly change.
o God gives anointing to whomsoever He wills.
· Reflective Questions for The Purpose of Anointing
o Give an example of an individual who is particularly anointed in some way. Comment on how, in most other ways, the person may seem quite ordinary.
o Why does God require us to grow and mature before He bestows an anointing?
o If you have been anointed in a particular area, how has Satan attempted to distract you from the purpose of your anointing?
