Release The Anointing Into Your Situation
1 ‘When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it.
The grain offering in the Old Testament speaks of Jesus’ sacrifice, and oil in
the Bible speaks of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. So the grain offering
of fine flour, which had oil poured on it, speaks of Jesus’ humanity being
anointed by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is fully God. But when He came to earth, He literally emptied Himself,
taking the form of a servant. (Philippians 2:7) That is why He needed to
be anointed of the Holy Spirit before He could begin His ministry. (John 1:33)
Though fully God, He did things by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was anointed to bring the blessings of God into the lives of people. He
first spoke of His anointing when He was preaching in His hometown — “The
Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel
to the poor…” (Luke 4:18)
Today, Jesus’ anointing has come upon you. (1 John 2:20) The Bible says that
“the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you”. (1 John 2:27)
But how is this anointing in you released?
My friend, it is when you call upon Jesus’ name. In Song of Solomon 1:3, the
virgins, representing the church, love His name, which is like ointment poured
forth when spoken. When they called upon His Name, His fragrance was released
and the anointing was poured forth.
So when you call upon the name of Jesus, you are releasing His anointing. Call
upon His name when you are feeling down and His anointing will lift your spirit
up. If you are feeling dry and empty, just say, “Jesus, Jesus.” Before you know it,
a river of refreshing will gush forth as His anointing flows. Call upon His name
when you need a breakthrough and His anointing will release it to you.
Romans 10:13 says that “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be
saved”. So call on Jesus’ name and watch His anointing release your deliverance,
healing, protection and provision, and make you whole!
