What is The Anointing?
The basic idea is to spread a liquid over something.
Anointed For Service
Ruth anointed herself and did Gods will.
Jesus was anointed and did Gods will.
Saints are anointed and do Gods will.
Examples of Anointing
God did not Un-anoint Saul because he sinned. Once anointed, always anointed.
The Music is Not Anointed
Service is the result of anointing - not the reverse.
Anointing is the result of Gods calling.
The anointing does not break the yoke of bondage.
Service breaks the yoke of bondage.
Our freedom from sin does not come to us because Jesus was anointed, but because he served.
Satan is anointed.
Do not be found over generalize or explain things on the basis of a single proof-text.
The best description of this interpretive error I have discovered is that of Lewis Sperry Chafer:
We Are Anointed to Serve
We have an anointing to serve.
We have an anointing to glorify God.
We need to exercise care in speaking of the anointing on a persons life.
It is best to leave the judgment of anointing to the one who does or does not give it.
