Thought for Today - The Purpose of God's Anointing Upon Your Life!




 

THOUGHT FOR TODAY – THE PURPOSE OF THE
HOLY SPIRIT’S ANOINTING – Part 6

Jesus laid down His deity to become a man and became empowered by Spirit of God - just as we are to do!

When the Holy Spirit anoints us – He has a purpose. Here’s HIS PURPOSE for anointing Jesus and God’s purpose for anointing US – JESUS’ BODY in the earth – that’s YOU!  Here’s what’s the ANOINTING of God is for:

1.    Preaching good news to the poor!
2.    Healing the brokenhearted!
3.    Proclaiming liberty to the captives!
4.    Opening of the prison to those who are bound!
5.    Doing GOOD!
6.    Healing ALL who were oppressed of the devil!

Isaiah 61:1 NKJV
"The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to [those who are] bound;"

Acts 10:38 NKJV –
"how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."

The THOUGHT for TODAY is: God’s purpose for you to be anointed by His Spirit is the same purpose as it was for Jesus – to set people FREE from the oppression of the devil.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - The Holy Spirit of God - Part 5 - Prophesy and New Tongues



THOUGHT FOR TODAY – THE LORD WANTS YOU FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT – Part 5

Why did God send the Holy Spirit to the earth? 
So that men and women can have POWER!

We need power to be God’s witnesses in the earth! 
We need God’s power to live for Him!

God gave evidence that they were filled with the Holy Spirit  – they spoke with other tongues and prophesied!

Acts 1:8 NKJV 

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

What happened when they received the Holy Spirit? They were all filled and spoke with other tongues!

Acts 2:2-4 NKJV 
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 

3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and [one] sat upon each of them. 

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The Holy Spirit indwelling was prophesied hundreds of years before it happened.
And it was expected, when they received the Holy Spirit they would speak with new tongues and prophesy.

Acts 2:13-18 NKJV 

Others mocking said, "They are full of new wine." 

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, 
"Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, 
and heed my words. 

15 "For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is [only] 
the third hour of the day. 

16 "But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 

17 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 

18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.

Thought for today – According to these Scriptures God tells us to be filled with the Holy Spirit and expect to receive His Spirit and speak with new tongues and prophesy!

Blessings and love,
