The Anointed House
Did you know that you could live in a household and not partake of everything given to you? Sure you could. But who would want to do such a thing?
Well, being a part of the household of the anointing is no different. You can live in it, if you’re born again, and never draw on the benefits of it. Or, you can tap into it!
And the way you do that is the same way you do everything else. By faith!
“Well, I just don’t have much faith.”
Yes, you do. If you’ve made Jesus the Lord of your life, you have great faith. To consider just how great it is, read Hebrews 11. That’s where all the Old Testament heroes of faith are listed. Usually when we read about those people, we want to be like them, but Hebrews 11:40 says God has “provided some better thing for us!”
That means you have more faith than the Old Covenant patriarchs. Think about that. You have more faith inside you than what split the Red Sea! God gave it to you when you were born again. First John 5 says, “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ [Anointed One] is born of God…. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (verses 1, 4).
You’re born of God. You have His spiritual genes and they include world-overcoming faith! What’s more, according to Hebrews 3:1-6, you have the anointing to use that faith. You and I are the house of the Anointed. We are the anointed house!
Speak the Word
“I believe that Jesus is the Christ—the Anointed One. I am born of God and I overcome the world.” (1 John 5:1,4)
