You Are an 'Anointed!'
We’ve thrown around the word anointing in religious circles for years without really understanding what it means. But if we’re to walk in the power of the gospel, we must let it become a reality to us.
The anointing is God’s presence, His essence. It’s the thing that makes God be God. The anointing is God on flesh enabling flesh (you and me) to do those things that are impossible for flesh to do.
For instance, flesh can’t heal anyone. Even Jesus’ flesh couldn’t heal anyone. His flesh came from Mary. It was as human as hers. Yet His perfect, sinless flesh speaking the Words of a perfect, sinless God, caused God’s Anointing to be upon Him without measure (see John 3:34).
It’s not hard for our minds to grasp the fact that the anointing was upon Jesus. What’s tough to comprehend is that the same burden-removing, yoke-destroying anointing that was on Him is available to us.
“Oh, Brother Copeland, that can’t be. After all, our flesh is not sinless.”
No, but God counts it that way if we’ll stay under the blood. That’s what grace is all about—giving us the anointing when we don’t deserve it! Our very name, Christians, means “the anointeds.”
Just like Jesus couldn’t heal in His own flesh, neither can you. But in the anointing, Jesus did bring healing, and so can you. You see, everything you need to do today can be done in the Anointed One and His Anointing.
His Anointing is on you, in you and all over you. Because of it, you have been enabled to do things you couldn’t normally do…whether it’s day-to-day responsibilities, or laying hands on someone and releasing the healing power of God. You can be and do everything God created you to be and do in His Anointing. You are an anointed!
