The Anointed, The Anointing And The Anointee, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
Text: Isaiah 61: 1-3, Luke 4:18 – 19.
JESUS Christ is the Anointed one, the Anointing is the Holy Spirit and the Anointee are the children of God.
From our text, Jesus said, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. Luke 4: 18
Jesus Christ healed the broken heart of Mary and Martha when He raised up their brother Lazarus that was dead in John 11 vs 38-44.
Jesus set the mad man of Gadara free from the captivity of the evil spirits in Mark 5 :1-12.
Jesus Christ gave sight and restore the sight of blind Bartimeus Mark 10: 46-52, Mk 8 :22 -26.
Jesus Christ set at liberty those that were bruised, the man that was deaf and also had impediment of speech Mark 7:32 – 35, the woman that her daughter was grievously vexed with a devil, Matthew 15:21 – 28., the man at the pool of Bethesda that has infirmity thirty and eight years, John 5:1 – 9, the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:25-34. to mention but a few.
Jesus Christ also was a solution to the physical needs of those he preached to, he feed them when they were hungry in Matthew 15 :29 – 39, Mark 8 :1-9.
Jesus Christ was only able to do all these due to the Anointing which is the Holy Spirit, and that was what He was referring to when He said and you shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. Acts 1 :8.
For us to be able to operate in divine abilities and do as Jesus did we need the Anointing which is the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ said by Himself that greater things shall be done by us when the Holy Spirit comes upon us after His departure. John 14 :12.
My prayer is that the good Lord will grant us His Holy Spirit so that we shall be empowered to do exploits in Jesus name.
