How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good,healing all who were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.[Acts 10:38].
1.JESUS WAS ANOINTED WITH THE HOLY GHOST AND WITH POWER
Jesus Christ was anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power. The anointing is a necessary ingredient if we are to do the work of God effectively.
2.WHAT REALLY IS THE ANOINTING?
First of all what does the word anointing really mean? To anoint is to pour or smear with oil or an oily substance. This often signifies the appointment of someone as a deliverer, to some other position or as a priest. The anointing usually gave someone the right or authority to operate in the appointed position. It is also the enduing of one with the necessary gifts of the Holy Spirit so that one is divinely empowered in their God ordained assignment.
The anointing is absolutely necessary for one to effectively carry out one’s assignment from the Lord.
3.IF CHRIST NEEDED THE ANOINTING TO BE EFFECTIVE, YOU DEFINITELY NEED THE ANOINTING!
Jesus Christ had to be anointed in order for him to do his work effectively. That anointing gave him power with which he healed all those who were oppressed of the devil. Without the anointing Jesus was not going to be effective in his ministry. If Jesus needed to be anointed, it conversely follows that we really need the anointing in our lives and ministries.
It is the anointing that gives us the divine ability to do the assignment of the Lord. The necessity of the anointing in our lives can not be debated or questioned. Therefore hunger for a greater anointing in your life and ministry.
