Preserved by the Anointing
The principles of living a Spirit fill life and being preserved until the coming of the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5:23, KJV: And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- The born-again life: - You must have come to the place where you have encountered the Savior Jesus Christ in your life.
John 3:5 'Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Acts 2:38 'Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Eph. 1:19 (AMPC) ' And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, vs.20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],
- The implication for the believer; 'immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength'
Vs. 21 'Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.
- He is Lord and Christ far above every authority, power or dominion…
This is the realm that we have been elevated to by the power of His might as believer's.
Eph. 2:4 (KJV) 'But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, vs. 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Note: This applies only when people decide to believe and be converted then the biblical blessing apply.
What is the implication for this Christian life?
1 John 5:4 ' For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
'For whatsoever is born of God' – this applies to your personal life, your career, your marriage, etc. The condition is that it is 'born of God'.
'this is the victory that overcometh the world – Vs 5 ' Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Who is he that overcomes? Depression, offenses, financial crises, sin, he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Note: The born-again experience must be a true living encounter with Jesus Christ not an organization or an individual for that matter. – Jesus said, John 14:6 'Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
- As long as a person does not make that decision to believe and serve the Lord Satan has legal access over their lives!
The Benefits of having the righteousness of Jesus over your life; Isa. 54:14 'In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
- When you are born again you take on the nature of God over your life.
#2 Walk in Faith in God
There are four time in scripture that the bible say, that the 'just shall live by faith'.
Hab 2:4 'Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10;38
- Those who have been justified by the blood of the Lamb, those who have been declared righteous on the account of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God who died on Calvary's cross.
Note: So, to be truly alive and living it comes through believing thus activation the promises of God over your life.
What is living Faith? Living faith is experienced through having an encounter with the living God by experience him via the baptism of the Holy Ghost, Miracles, encounters, and when this happens it places a deep conviction over your life so much that it causes you to want to live in total obedience to the Lord.
- Faith has a word connected to the word obedience based on your conviction on the integrity of the Word of God.
2 Tim. 1:12 'For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
By faith you commit your Life, your family, your purpose, your finances and your destiny and you have the confidence that 'he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Heb. 10:39 (AMPC) But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by faith preserve the soul.
How much do you believe? To the 'preserving of the soul'
- You preserve your mind, your heart, your will and reasoning.
Psalm 16:1 'Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Psalm 86;2 'Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
#3 Your encounter with revelation knowledge (Marvelous light)
I Peter 2:9, 'But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:'
When God created the earth he came to remove darkness and chaos by saying, 'let there be light'.
Prov. 2:11 ' Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
We are kept and strengthened by the discretion and understanding that we have in the revelation of Jesus Christ illuminated by the 'light of the Gospel'.
- You must contend for a deeper knowledge and understanding of His Word and resist every level of ignorance.
Colossians 1:13, KJV: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Note: Christians must not remain in darkness if so Satan is determined to deprive at every level and bring frustration to your life as to draw back from the faith.
Gal 4:1 (AMPC) Now what I mean is that as long as the inheritor (heir) is a child and under age, he does not differ from a slave, although he is the master of all the estate;
Psalm 40:11 (KJV) Withhold not Your tender mercy from me, O Lord; let Your loving-kindness and Your truth continually preserve me!
Man Shall Live by the Word
Matt. 4:4 'But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
- Your life should be a reflection of the Word of God in your life.
Psalm 94:1 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
The Word of God is that light! – John 1:5 'And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Note: When Satan has access to your life he will expose you to many opportunities that does not represent the true light of the Gospel even if he twist somethings that look like the Gospel –
1 Tim. 4: 'Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
This truth is 'sold'
Prov. 23:23 (AMPC) Buy the truth and sell it not; not only that, but also get discernment and judgment, instruction and understanding.
The idea is that it will cost you to buy the truth, you use
- Discipline, Discretion, good judgement, understanding.
2 Tim 4:3 (AMPC) For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,
- Its going to take time to know the will of God to obtain total victory
Prov. 4;20-22 (KJV) My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
What is that law to those who find it? 'For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh'.
#4 The Prophetic
Hosea 12:13 'And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.
There is a supernatural preservation to a person or to a church by and through the ministry of the prophetic.
That preservation comes through
- Through words – Hos. 12:10 'I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.
- God uses His Word and His prophets to cancel anything that is evil or to activate your blessings into your life.
Speaking over your life, anointing with oil, binding and rebuking.
Isa. 65:8 Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all.
- God will use a prophet to say, 'Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it
Psa. 102;20-22 'To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; 21 To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; 22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
The ministry of the church is established by the ministry and foundation of the apostles and Jesus Christ being the Chief corner stone.
Jesus encountered 3 prophets before he started His ministry.
- Simeon in the temple he held him and spoke to baby Jesus.
- Anna the prophetess was praying and ushering Him into the N.T. as the midwife commanding that the Word become flesh.
- Jon the Baptist.
Just knowing about the truth is not enough it take ordained vessels that have been appointed to declare it to be so as it is written!
#5 The Anointing over your life is a preserver.
Psa. 105;12-15 'When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. 13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; 14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; 15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
The anointing is a mark or a seal upon a person and that mark which is the anointing that causes everything, and everybody leave you alone and in peace.
The anointing makes a statement - Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
- Untimely financial hardship – 'Touch not my anointed'
- Untimely death –
The preservation of the anointing is to break wicked yokes
Isa. 10:27 '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.
- It shall be destroyed because of the anointing
Take some oil and anoint!!!!
